Feel Happier & Calmer with Harmony Functional Hot Cacao

When life gets stressful, it’s normal to feel not quite yourself. Maybe it’s harder to stay positive from day to day or to shake off those worrying thoughts that keep you up at night. 

At times like this, we naturally look for ways to cheer ourselves up. Everyone has their preferred method. Some people go for a run. Others choose Netflix and chocolate. 😊

Well, here’s a happy thought: Chocolate actually does have natural mood-lifting properties! In fact, one large survey found that 70% of adults were less likely to feel down if they’d had chocolate in the last 24 hours.

Of course, most chocolate bars are full of sugar. So why not get your chocolate fix with a cup of Harmony Functional Hot Cacao? Made with 100% pure cacao, it’s rich and delicious, yet has just 4 grams of sugar per serving.

Here are three reasons why a cup of hot cacao a day keeps the blues away.

1/ Happy Brain Chemicals

Cocoa is rich in polyphenols and other natural compounds that can help boost levels of happy brain chemicals, such as endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are known for reducing stress and promoting an upbeat mood.*

No wonder multiple studies have found that chocolate supports a positive outlook and helps people feel more “calm and contented.”*,

2/ Gut-Brain Axis

Did you know that cocoa can help support a healthy gut? That’s important, because the health of your gut health affects the state of your mood.*  

Why? Your friendly gut bacteria help regulate your mood and stress levels through what’s known as the gut-brain axis. Cocoa acts as a prebiotic, helping to feed those friendly gut bacteria.*

One randomized controlled study found that consuming dark chocolate significantly changed the makeup of gut bacteria, with a correlated improvement in mood.*

3/ Relaxation & Sleep

It’s naturally easier to sleep when you feel more calm and contented. But it’s not just the mood benefits of chocolate that help you rest easier. 

Chocolate is a rich natural source of magnesium. This essential mineral helps muscles and nerves relax and helps regulate neurotransmitters to promote restful sleep.*
