Some foods are effective for improving mood, especially during a depressive period. Milk chocolate is calorific and does not offer much to benefit the heart. However, dark chocolate contains antioxidants and a feel good endorphin called phenylethylamine. The herb rosemary improves awareness, contains essential vitamins, and delivers an aroma that creates a feeling of contentment. Apples are available all year round. They are packed with fibre to improve the digestive system, remove toxins, and the natural fruit sugars are released slowly to provide a natural flow of energy and reduce fatigue.
