July 7th is World Chocolate Day. To help decrease your anxiety levels you will be pleased to know Harpers Bazaar has included dark chocolate in their 11 Mood Boosting Foods For Winter. A couple small dark squares is all it takes (70% cocoa or more), so try not to hoover up the whole bar!
“There’s a reason why chocolate always seems to make things better. A small square of dark chocolate causes the brain to release endorphins and boost serotonin levels. In a recent study, 30 people were given 40g of dark chocolate, over 14 days. The results showed that chocolate eaters produced less stress hormones and their anxiety levels decreased.”
