A Cup of Happiness? TEA TIME!

benefits of drinking tea.... happiness

Everyone knows drinking tea soothes you but it can help your happiness too. There is evidence that chemicals in tea (also in berries and chocolate) are mood enhancers says Karina Martinez, PhD, lead researcher at the Torry Pines Institute. These findings suggest that flavor componds in many foods bear a strong chemical resemblance to a mood-stabilizing drug called valproic acid and may actually have similar effects. So grab a mug of your favorite green or black tea (which also contain L-theanine, chemical that relaxes the mind) and you might get that boost of happiness you need to have a great day.
