Stress is an integral part of life in the 21st century. Everyone is looking for their own ways to reduce it. Usually everyone says that you can overcome stress through sports, meditation, or just a favorite activity.

However, the latest study proves that food is another effective tool for reducing stress. It proves that consuming more fermented food and fiber for only 4 weeks will have a significant impact on stress levels, writes Science Alert.

In recent years, scientists have proven the significant impact of diets on people's mental health. So far, the mechanism for this is not entirely clear. But now the influence is explained through the connection between our brain and the microbiome – the trillions of bacteria that live in the gut. These organs communicate via the gut-brain axis.

The latest study tried to find out if diet changes could affect stress levels. For this, 45 healthy people aged 18-59 were involved. More than half were women. Two groups were created and they were randomly assigned a special type of food. Half were to eat the Kirsten Birding diet, which included an increase in fermented foods and prebiotics.

Daily, this group should include 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables in the diet: onions, cabbage, apples, bananas, 5-8 servings grains and 3-4 servings of legumes per week. From fermented foods, 2-3 servings of foods such as sauerkraut were to be included daily. This diet was called psychobiotic.

Participants who adhered to this particular diet experienced less stress than the other group. Those who ate the most psychobiotic foods reported the greatest reductions in perceived stress levels. Sleep was also improved.

In addition, there were significant changes in the levels of certain key chemicals produced by gut microbes. Some of them are related to mental health. Therefore, this may explain the reduction in stress. Overall, the results suggest that special diets can be used to manage stress in the long term.

However, the study has certain limitations. It is not clear how long the changes will continue and whether there were errors in the assessment of food intake. The experiment was aimed only at healthy people. Scientists are wondering if these results can be replicated in people suffering from stress disorders.
