Table 3 Multivariate linear regression analyses of the energy-adjusted DTAC and depression, stress, and anxiety scores (n = 175)

From: Dietary total antioxidant capacity is inversely associated with depression, anxiety and some oxidative stress biomarkers in postmenopausal women: a cross-sectional study

DTAC (μmol/day) Depression score Stress score Anxiety score
Coefficient standard β P Coefficient standard β P Coefficient standard β P
Unadjusted model − 0.14 0.053 − 0.05 0.3 − 0.19 0.008
Model 1 − 0.14 0.06 − 0.06 0.3 − 0.19 0.01
Model 2 − 0.16 0.03 − 0.10 0.1 − 0.21 0.007
  1. Depression, anxiety, stress scores were log10 transformed
  2. DTAC dietary total antioxidant capacity
  3. Model 1, adjustment for age (year) and years since menopause (year)
  4. Model 2, further adjustment for education (year), waist circumference (cm), physical activity (MET min/week), dietary supplement use (yes/no), dietary intake of fiber (g/day), energy (kcal/day) and coffee (g/day)
  5. DTAC was adjusted for energy intake by residual method
