What lifts your spirits? Good weather, good news, gifts… British scientists add food to this list. What kind of food can make you happy?
- The first place on the list of happiness products is French fries. Experts explained that this delicacy is associated with rest and relaxation.
- The second place is taken by confectionery: milk chocolate, cookies, cakes, and pastries. These foods increase the levels of serotonin (the happiness hormone) in the blood, fighting bad mood and melancholy.
- Third on the list is caviar. Both red and black caviar evoke pleasant emotions associated with wealth.
An Italian scientist Luca Passamonti at the University of Catanzaro states that “a happy diet”, in addition to eggs and chocolate, also includes milk, cheese, poultry, pork and beef, nuts. All of these products contain the tryptophan amino acid.
It is enough to eat 350 grams (about 12.35 oz) of these foods each day to keep a positive attitude. However, you should not abuse the happiness products, or your shape may suffer.
