2. Mood Enhancing Drinks
Everything you drink should be in moderation, but with these drinks you should definitely stress the “in moderation” concept. However if you do so these drinks can provide many health benefactors. Hot Chocolate helps to increase happiness by increasing the body’s level of the neurotransmitter serotonin – a hormone that regulates mood (low levels of it are associated with depression). The Cocoa in it also helps protect against heart disease.
Mint Tea also helps with your mood as it is an antispasmodic. It has the ability to help with muscle relaxation and it does this by easing cramps and allowing for better digestion by helping to promote the food you eat through the digestive track. Mood enhancing drinks are not only good for you – they make you feel good!
