Our emotions can get the best of us. One minute we can be happy another second stressed. Our emotions also play a role on how we perform at work and at home. 

Foods play an important role in our emotions as well and can result in a lower level of Serotonin. Serotonin is known as the “feel-good” chemical, and generally helps to maintain a good mood and preserve your mental health. Some symptoms of low Serotonin include: depression, long naps, low self-esteem, and possessiveness over the little things, irritability, shyness and panic attacks…YIKES!

There are plenty of ways to avoid this from happening. One of which is to eat wisely. This means especially eliminating sweets from your diet! Sweet and simple carbs like left over cake, white rice or white bread, can quickly raise your blood sugar levels, which is not good for the body. Also, watching the consumption of caffeine suppresses Serotonin as well.

Secondly, incorporating B vitamins into your diet helps maintain healthy serotonin levels as well. Vitamins such as B-1, 3, 6 and 9 all help convert tryptophan, an amino acid you acquire from protein in your diet, into functional serotonin. Deficiencies in these vitamins can greatly affect your mental health or cognitive functioning, causing symptoms such as depression, again, and confusion. 

Some Vitamin B complex foods are: milk, yeast, whole-grain cereals, nuts, eggs, yogurt, fruits, meats and leafy vegetables.

Not interested in any of those foods? SPT has another great option to keep you happy and “B” healthy!
