Science behind Fruit-Vegetable-Mood Connection

"...Analyses showed that fruit and vegetable consumption predicted improvements in positive [mood] the next day...on days when people ate more fruits and vegetables, they reported feeling calmer, happier and more energetic than they normally do...[and] also felt more positive the next day."

"HOW MANY FRUITS & VEGETABLES? Seems we need to consume approximately 7.2 daily servings of fruit* or 8.2 servings of vegetables to notice a meaningful change in mood."
