There’s a reason why chocolate always seems to make things better. A small square of dark chocolate causes the brain to release endorphins and boost serotonin levels. In a recent study, 30 people were given 40g of dark chocolate, over 14 days. The results showed that chocolate eaters produced less stress hormones and their anxiety levels decreased.
How much do you need? A couple small dark squares is all it takes (70% cocoa or more), so try not to hoover up the whole bar!
