The Emotional Effects of Making Chocolate



When you are sad or troubled, who are you going to call? No, this is not a jumbled lyric of a song or two. This is just some wise question that can be answered by the process of making chocolate.

No, there is no scientific evidence that will back up the positive gain that a person could gain emotionally from chocolates. Some people even say that chocolates cause headaches, even severe ones like migraines. Different people have different views. But most of them would say that this really is a treat no matter how it affects you physically, mentally and emotionally.

Focusing on the emotions, there may be no official study about the effects of chocolates on one's emotions. But there are popular beliefs. And people have formed varying opinions about the matter.

Sudden Happiness

Chocolates are considered to be uppers when depression struck you when you least expect it. For this reason, people turn to this treat to feel elated even for a moment while they are so sad and blue.

But because the positive effect can be short-lived, people tend to eat a large amount of the treat. For this reason, the negative effect on their body starts to show. Everything that is taken too much is bad for you. Chocolates contain sugar and fats that must be taken in moderation.

For the reason that chocolates are full of carbohydrates, these increase the level of tryptophan in the brain. Such chemical produces more serotonin. The latter results into regulating one's mood and often creates a jolly and positive feeling.

Good for the Heart

It is also a common knowledge that chocolate is good for the heart. It elevates the level of responsiveness of the human blood vessels. This process is helpful in preventing on from suffering heart ailments. This sweet can also increase one's tolerance on glucose. And besides, chocolates have anti oxidant ingredients that can prevent one person from having cancer.

But again, take note that these are popular beliefs by people who love the treat. Scientific quests, for sure, will find ways to put a benefit of the doubt or disprove such claims.

Negative Outcry

People blame chocolates for being too addicting. As a result, such sweet treat leads to simple headaches, rectal itching, to serious sickness like obesity and heart burn. It is even known to cause one person to be irritable, confused and temperamental.

One negative connotation about chocolates is that they are addicting. Some people use this as an excuse to turn against their vices like alcohol or smoking and turn to eating hoards of chocolates instead.

You can blame it on the more than 350 chemicals that can be found on chocolates. People not only it is addicting, but many of them conclude that it also causes allergies.

Women are more prone to crave for chocolates more than men. This can be due to the fact that chocolates have magnesium. This can explain why women turn to chocolate during Post Menstrual Syndrome, known to many as the PMS. At this period, women suffer lack of magnesium, enough reason for the craving and all.

Making chocolate is a known process to make one happy. Eating the treat will satisfy more of the craving for such delicacy. Just remember to take chocolates moderately. Even the best things in life have a negative impact if you will not learn to control yourself from taking in a little bit too much.
