In this article you will learn how to improve mood through food. Especially when we suffer States of anxiety, irritability, depression, stress, etc.


Chocolate is possibly one of the most sought after foods when we are in low mood States. The problem is that what we really need is the cocoa for its high content of magnesium, a mineral that directly nourishes our nervous system. In addition, cocoa also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that promotes the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that carries a nerve signal that produces happiness. Thanks to magnesium and tryptophan is that we highlight this food to maybe improve the mood.
On the other hand, fats and sugars which contains chocolate does not benefit us at all, and why we recommend to consume pure cocoa (combined with infusions, vegetable drinks and desserts...) either dark chocolate with a high cocoa content.
