Why People Eat Chocolates When They Are In A Bad Mood
Mood fluctuations are a part of life. We get happy when something good happens to us, we feel sad when problems and worries surround our entire being. Eating chocolates, especially when we are in a bad mood, helps overcome the problem – if not really – but it at least gives us the strength to face them.
This happens because chocolates have an array of compounds that contribute to the pleasurable sensation of eating them.
- Chocolates have highly active flavonoids that help activate anti-anxiety receptors in quite the same way as caffeine. This helps calm our minds, especially in stressed situations.
- As a group of natural substances that have variable phenolic structures, flavonoids have positive effects on health. It is these flavonoids that help reduce blood pressure and improve the function of blood vessels.
- According to a study published in The Lancet, chocolates contain four times of catechin which is a type of flavonoid – something that is also present in tea.
- Research further shows that chocolates contain estrogen-like compounds that circulate in the blood and help reduce stress and depression.
- It is also believed that women have very strong chocolate cravings just before and during their menstrual cycle. A lot of research studies are currently underway to understand this phenomenon.
