Serotonin

What is serotonin? It’s pretty darn important actually.

 

Serotonin is the feel-good hormone that balances our mood, feelings, and state of well-being.

Underestimate it at your peril, as Serotonin impacts your entire body.

 

It helps:
Reduce depression and anxiety
Heal wounds
Maintain bone health
Is responsible for our sleeping, eating, and digestion.

 

As you can see it is vital. So how do we make more of it?

90% of serotonin is produced in the digestive tract. That is why gut health is so important for mental wellbeing and overall health.

Try eating more fermented foods, Turkey, eggs, cheese, pineapple, tofu, nuts & seeds. Why? Well, they all contain tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your body produce serotonin.

Other bits of good advice also work here – make sure you exercise regularly, get some sunshine (when you can), and eat a balanced diet!

Combined you can have a significant impact on your mood and boost your own state of well-being.
