If you are a chocolate lover, you’re in luck! Today is World Chocolate Day and it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in your favourite sweet treat. Chocolate makes up such a big part of our lives, it’s no wonder chocolate has its very own day marked on the calendar!
Many of us would admit we probably eat a little too much chocolate and that probably has to do with chocolate’s ability to make us feel good. Chocolate contains tryptophan, which can produce serotonin, the hormone that regulates our mood. Scientists also believe our bodies release endorphins after eating chocolate because we’re satisfying our cravings. No wonder eating chocolate is such a good time!
