Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of folic acid and magnesium, both of which are mood-boosters. One handful of sunflower seeds provides half of your daily magnesium needs. Chocolate and bananas have been shown to elevate levels of serotonin – our brain’s natural antidepressant. Chocolate also boosts endorphins in the brain. Endorphins, which are produced by the pituitary gland, are opiate-like chemicals that produce a mild euphoria.
