Does eating a snack once in a while have benefits?
According to studies, eating a snack can make you feel good. Volunteers from the University of Kentucky, in the United States, who consumed carrots instead of candy, gave up on cognitive tests rather than those who ate only treats. But when hunger attacks and only a sweet snack is at hand, choose the best one for your mind.
And which one is the best? There are several that provide excellent benefits, among them we have: peanuts, which contain vitamin B6, which has been shown to increase verbal ability and reasoning ability. Oatmeal bars or cookies that contain corn and rice, provide serotonin, which improves your mood and relieves symptoms of depression. A glass of milk is a rich source of dopamine, which helps the learning process and can prevent Parkinson's disease. And chewing gum, a study at the University of Northumbria in England, found that chewing gum hastened the flow of oxygen to the brain, which improves memory.
