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.
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.
