Health Alert: Give or Receive, it is the Same Brain Boost

Updated: Wednesday, December 25 2013, 10:35 PM EST
AVONDALE, Ohio (Liz Bonis) -- A new study released takes a closer look at whether it really is better to give or receive.

This study found that either way, you get what you give and you give what you get.

According to experts at the Cleveland Clinic, whether or not you open and receive a gift or give a gift to someone else you get the same dose of happy hormones.  The ones they measured are serotonin. Serotonin is your body's feel good hormone.

So here is what they want all of us to know: it is Christmas Eve and if you are thinking of making a donation to someone or something know that your gift is the gift that keeps giving.  And your body will benefit either way.
