Scientists have proven the influence of chocolate on a person's mood

The use of dark chocolate in small amounts can really change the mood: polyphenols, which are part of the treats, soothe and cause a sense of satisfaction
Australian experts conducted a study, the results of which showed that eating dark chocolate in small amounts can really change the mood: polyphenols, which are part of the treat, soothe and cause a sense of satisfaction.
Scientists from the University of Technology of Swinburne in Australia decided to find out what effect cognitive functions and moods have on polyphenols contained in cocoa. A total of 72 volunteers from both sexes, aged between 40 and 65, participated in the expert study. During the month, all subjects each consumed a chocolate drink with a certain content of polyphenols (from 0 to 500 mg).
Analyzing the results of the experiment, the scientists found almost no improvement in cognitive functions. But the mood of the participants in the case was different: practically all of them changed for the better. The greatest peace of mind and satisfaction with their own lives was felt by those volunteers who drank a chocolate drink with a content of 500 mg of polyphenols for 30 days.
However, experts acknowledge that this experiment is not the most reliable method of measuring well-being, because the subjects themselves assessed their own mood both before and after the completion of the study using a special scale. Plus, scientists can not say with absolute certainty that it was the dark chocolate that served as the "culprit" for improving the mood. After all, it is possible that all subjects felt happy only because they were allowed to drink an extremely delicious drink every day.
Nutritionists emphasize that in the use of chocolate you need to know the measure, otherwise it will only bring harm to health. In addition, white chocolate is almost uselessly recognized - it contains a minimum amount of polyphenols.
