There are plenty of fruits that boost serotonin and also help in enhancing the mood chemicals found in the brain. Such serotonin boosting food includes pineapples, plums, bananas and sour cherries.

Tryptophan is also found in the protein rich food such as turkey which helps boost serotonin level in the body. Research shows that people feel sleepy after having turkey for their dinner. Such large meals are found on the Thanksgiving dinner time. Protein rich food that are also serotonin boosting food include the beef, wild fish, eggs and all other animal foods that help in promoting the growth hormones in the body.

3. Carbohydrate Sources which Boost Serotonin

Carbohydrate rich foods make a person feel full completely. Such foods that boost serotonin include the grains and sugar rich foods. When a person feels full by having carbohydrates, a feeling of satisfaction sets in and it also produces serotonin. Such carbohydrates which boost serotonin levels include the pasta, bread and white potatoes. There are dairy products such as milk, cheese and cheddar cheese. These chemicals improve the mood and have the same effect as of boosting serotonin.

4. Sweets which Boost Serotonin

Dark chocolate is the best source of serotonin in the case of sweet foods as it is mostly liked by many people too. It helps in increasing the level of serotonin in the brain and improves an individual’s mood as well. High levels of sugar in a human’s body will not respond in an energetic way.

Serotonin will respond differently to every person’s body. Therefore, appropriate amounts of quantities of food need to be found out by a person to decide the level of serotonin required by each person. Serotonin is never recommended when dealing with depressions or other disorders of the body. In that case, doctor needs to be consulted.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
