Having something sweet when we are feeling low, like a piece from a box of dark chocolates instantly uplifts our mood. Apart from the nutritious benefits of eating food, there are many psychological, physiological and motivational effects on us, both positive and negative.
Example: Carbonated beverages, like a can of diet coke, can evoke aggressive reactions, especially in people who have a history of aggression or violence.
An elaborate, three part study to check the relationship between the spiciness of food to the aggression that is exhibited afterwards revealed that we are in fact what we eat, and are bound to be agitated or irritated after eating hot and spicy foods.
Our Gastrointestinal tract has billions of bacteria, and the food we consume alters our gut health, changing the balance of good and bad bacteria. Our mood regulators, which control our aggression, cognition, mood, sleep and anxiety are actually located in our gut.
Eating sugary treats produces feel-good and feel-happy hormones like dopamine and serotonin, proving that food is directly associated with emotions, comfort, pain, motivation and concentration.
We should consume foods that elevate our mood and promote good bacteria in our stomach. Yogurt, kimchi, fresh veggies and fruits are foods that you can use to lighten your mood and body.
If there is a need to be fighting fit, like before a debate starts, consuming spicy stuff is a good idea, especially when confronting an aggressive opponent!
