A new study b British researchers shows a direct link between cardiorespiratory fitness and muscle strength and a persons mental health.

The study, which included more than 150,000 participants, found those who had a low combined cardiorespiratory fitness and muscle strength were 98% more likely to experience depression and 60% more likely to experience anxiety.

Researchers also noted that individuals can improve their physical fitness in just three week, which can reduce their risk of developing a mental health condition by up to 32.5%.

The academy says those who eat a vegan or vegetarian diet should focus on getting the nutrients they are missing from meat sources in consultation with a dietitian.
