A recent study by Victoria University discovered that people who ate Vegemite, Marmite and MightyMite were less stressed and anxious than those who didn’t.
Dr Ross Walker, cardiologist, author and media presenter, says it’s well known that the B-group vitamins, found in Vegemite, are stress relievers.
“However, Vegemite is loaded with salt and that’s my concern about the Vegemite message getting out there,” he says.
“While it’s alright for kids to have it regularly, adults who tuck into Vegemite can cause serious problems, especially for those with high blood pressure. Vegemite may whack their blood pressure up through the roof.”
