10 Natural Ways To Boost Your Serotonin Levels & Become Happier

Do you feel happy? It’s a fact that many things can interfere
with your happiness, like love and money. But did you know that this feeling has a lot
to do with a hormone? For many and many centuries, people have tried
to define and represent happiness. However, in recent years, some people started
studying happiness from a completely non-romantic angle, through a biological process to understand
what triggers this feeling, from a physical point of view. And that’s when they found the hormone serotonin. Have you ever heard about it? We talked about serotonin in a recent video. If you are interested, watch the suggested
video. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that acts
on the brain, and creates a communication in between the nerve cells. It is also found in the digestive system and
on blood platelets. Interesting, isn’t it? This hormone is produced through an amino-acid
called tryptophan, obtained through food. Serotonin is responsible for regulating the
humor, sleep, appetite, cardiac rhythm, body temperature, sensibility, and intellectual
functions … phew! When its levels are low, it can lead to a
bad mood, troubles sleeping, anxiety, and even depression. Are you liking the video so far? Give it a thumbs up and share it with your
friends who may suffer from this! If you have these symptoms , and think they
are chemically caused, try increasing your serotonin concentration. You can start by eating foods rich in tryptophan
and practicing regular physical activities. See 10 other ways of improving your happiness
hormone: Consume more tryptophan
Tryptophan is found in foods such as: lean meats, eggs and dairy, nuts and seeds. Try having at least one of these foods in
your meals. Vitamin B supplement
All the vitamins from the B complex help you feel good, and also help keeping your body
in shape. Vitamins B12 and B6 are great for this. According to studies, supplementing vitamin
B can help treat depression. The ideal is to consume around 50-100mg per
day, but you should always talk to your doctor beforehand. Include magnesium in your diet
Magnesium affects serotonin balance, which helps control blood pressure and regulates
anxiety. If you want more magnesium in your diet, consume
dark green leaves, fish, banana and beans. Vitamin C
Sometimes, it may seem as if vitamin C is not as important as B complex vitamins, when
we talk about serotonin. But that’s not what recent studies show. Did you know that there is a strong relation
between vitamin C and mood? Vitamin C has natural antidepressant properties,
and increasing its intake will increase your happiness. If that’s what you are looking for, eat more
oranges, bell peppers, tomatoes, and green leaves. Decrease the sugar
Did you know that craving sugary foods is one of the main symptoms of low serotonin? Craving sugar and eating sweets without moderation
can lead to a sharp decline in your mood. Not to mention how you feel when you see the
numbers on a scale. Sunbath
Did you know that sunlight can start the production of serotonin in your brain? Even if the sky is a little cloudy, it is
still possible to get the benefits of this powerful energy. Spend from 20 to 30 minutes outside, every
morning or afternoon. If you can go for a walk, the benefits will
be improved. Meditate
Yes, meditation is very popular nowadays, and it actually helps your well-being. The serotonin levels increase as a response
to any kind of meditation that elevates 5-HIAA, an acid needed for serotonin production. As a bonus, it also affects the stress hormone,
and reduces inflammation. And last, but not least: schedule a massage! Did you know that massages can affect your
mood? When was the last time you had a massage? A good massage can decrease muscle tension,
which reduces cortisol by 30%. It will make you feel lighter and calm. What are you waiting for to start taking care
of yourself and feel 100% happy? Your happiness depends only of you!

  2. I don’t agree with the meditation πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ or massage πŸ’† . β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š

  3. It might be better for youngsters to begin an ideal diet and to reduce their stress factors. It's so complex and cleaning up the damage post trauma and post poor diet would be no easy task. I'm old and although grew up poor I had less access to treats and some processed foods. My basic bean and potatoes diet would need to be modified for kids prone to becoming diabetic. A relative of mine with diabetes eats black beans, garbanzo beans and low carb foods. Think maybe yellow potatoes are much better for you than white if you need a low carb diet. I don't know much and I eat junk too.

  4. The feeling when u come to the video to look a way to be happier, cus u feel miserable. Then realize that u're already doing all of the steps included in this video smh.

  5. I found that having a banana or pumpkin puree and even two cloves of garlic helps these foods also help to get a good nights sleep try it for a week, But I would say write it down because if your like me you will forget why you are sleeping so well.
