Endorphin is the „happiness hormone“ which makes us calm, boosts mood, and lowers pain. We feel uneasy when we don't have enough endorphins, our hunger and desire for fatty food and sweets increases, we're more prone to mood changes, and the risk of sleeplessness increases.
Exercising, listening to music, creating art, dancing, and laughing can all help to naturally raise endorphins.
When you are in a bad mood, eat one of this food:
Chocolate includes a variety of chemicals that have been linked to the activation of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. Eat dark chocolate instead of white chocolate to get the most out of it. Dark chocolate contains more antioxidants that have a positive effect on the health, concentration, and functioning of the brain.
Citrus is connected with a positive mood even simply by smelling it. The major chemical component of citrus, d-limonene, gives it its characteristic fresh and exhilarating fragrance. This component appears to help the portion of the neurological system involved for relaxation, according to studies. To put it another way, it can help you relax. Citrus consumption also raises endorphin levels due to the high vitamin C content. Vitamin C deficiency can raise the risk of sadness and anxiety, according to studies. High levels of vitamin C stimulate endorphin release and promote happiness.
While citrus fruits are well-known for their vitamin C content, peppers are also high in vitamins. They have more vitamin C than oranges. Broccoli, prosciutto, and strawberries, in addition to peppers, are excellent sources of vitamin C.
Endorphin secretion is increased by them. This is due to the presence of capsaicin, a chemical that makes them „angry“. Capsaicin has been employed as a painkiller in scientific investigations due to its potency in producing a pleasant sensation. Capsaicin is associated with longevity in addition to enhancing endorphin levels, which is another reason why it is occasionally worthwhile to make meals hotter.
Avocados are packed with vitamin B3, a serotonin-boosting vitamin and they also contain omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to support brain health and mood regulation.
And, of course, there's water.
Water is essential for keeping our body and mind hydrated and functioning properly, so it is recommended that we drink 2 liters of water every day, either directly or through our food and drink.
