Does your food influence your mood?


Does your food influence your mood?

Your food impacts your mood, and your mood impacts your food. It's a cycle.

What is serotonin? Serotonin is a naturally occurring chemical  which controls your emotions, digestion and how well you sleep. From an emotional perspective, it’s an important hormone which can help stabilize our mood, happiness and overall well-being. Hence why serotonin is often called the ‘happy hormone’.

Did you know that 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut? What you eat highly impacts your body's ability to produce this 'feel-good' chemical.

So how can you naturally increase your serotonin levels? Here's a few ideas:

- Egg yolks
- Be out in nature
- Pineapples
- Exercise
- Nuts & seeds
- Get some sun
- Salmon
- Listen to music
- Spinach
- Meditate

Everything is connected. By consuming good quality food, you can improve your mental, physical and emotional health. 

Eat well. Feel well. Live well.
