When happiness is mentioned, SEROTONIN immediately comes to mind… Also known as happiness hormone. If the show of chocolate waterfalls flowing before our eyes has passed, let’s talk about how to increase this hormone level. Serotonin is a hormone produced in the body. However, the intake of omega-3, tryptophan, magnesium, zinc from the outside supports the production of serotonin. Tryptophan is an amino acid and is found in foods such as turkey, eggs, almonds, chicken, beef, soy, milk and dairy products, tangerines, bananas, cocoa, sesame, peanuts, flour. The best source of Omega-3 is fish.
