Chili: Some like it hot
The capsaicin contained in chili creates a sharp sensation on the tongue . That can boost the release of good mood endorphins, which create the so-called pepper -high effect.
Raspberries: Pure soul food!
The little berries ensure that the protein building block tryptophan finds its way directly into the brain – that's great for lifting our mood! That happens even more quickly if the fruit is eaten in combination with yoghurt.
Coriander & Parsley: Seasoning for happiness
These herbs contain apiol – this essential oil stimulates, combats depression and lifts the spirits. Pregnant women should only consume small amounts of parsley. Apiol can stimulate the uterine muscles.
Chocolate: The classic
It really is true: Chocolate lifts the spirits. The reason: The sugar, fat and cocoa in the sweet bar or as a dessert boost the formation of the happiness hormone serotonin in the brain. So enjoy!
