Hearing the word FAT often creates negative feedback, dwhen there are also "good fat". These fish fat, as was the focus of my previous post, are good for the body. But it not only gives positive effect on our health but also to our MOODS.
Omega-3-fatty-acids coming either from fatty fishes like the salmon family or from capsules are said to lighten the moods even of thse with polar disorders. In one study, researches have recorded dramatic results of less stress in subjuects given such diet.
Sugar and sweets have time and again given significant findings to affecting moods as well. With these two combined, fat and sugar, chocolate surfaces. And so it is not surpising to hear of CHOCOHOLICS. With chocolates you get the "feel good neurotransmitter", serotonin in the brain, working. And in this event, endorphines are given off which gives one the feeling of pleasure like when we are laughing a lot, listening to good music or hugging. The presence of even the so called PEA (phenylethylamine) that is both in chocolates and is released when in love is something that we all prefers to have to be in that same mood ~ being in love.
