How to boost your serotonin level?
We know that serotonin, the wellbeing hormone, is made from amino - acid L - Tryptophan (TRP) found in protein. L-Tryptophan synthesizes serotonin and melatonin in our brain.
Add carbohydrates to improve serotonin levels in your brain. Why do we link carbs and TRP? Because Carbs (sugar) give TRP straight - shot into your brain via insulin increase, which block other amino-acids that are competing with TRP for entry to your brain.

- Dairy products
Where can you find rich-carbohydrates?
