Being in a bad mood, but you don’t know why?!
You might be missing antioxidants that stimulate your serotonin!
Simply eat these foods regularly and see how bad mood and mood swing disappear!
Coconuts do contain medium-chain triglycerides, which are special fats that promote better moods and general brain-health. To only get the health benefits and not the bad parts of coconut (fat and sugar), stick with unsweetened coconut shavings.
Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat and potassium, both of which help lower blood pressure and helps keep receptors in the brain sensitive to mood-boosting serotonin. Half an avocado a day is enough already!
Spinach is stocked with folic acid, a B vitamin that has been found to boost your mood. It’s also an antioxidant that works to protect your brain cells from free radicals, which can lead to low energy and mood swings.
Green tea is full of theanine, an antioxidant which acts as a calming agent. So sip a cup or two whenever you feel down!
Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries all contain the antioxidant anthocyanin, which help reduce stress and depression and fight oxidative stress.
Pineapple is full of tryptophan, which works great against depression. Since our body does not produce tryptophan on its own, it must get it from food sources, like pineapple or tofu.
Oranges contain inositol, which regulates serotonin and insulin in the body for fewer blood sugar imbalances and fewer mood swings.
Almonds are known to contain serotonins, Vitamin E, vitamin B2 also known as Riboflavin and antioxidants that improve the immune system. They also cut down down the harmful effects of stress. The next time you’re feeling down, help yourself to some crunchy nuts.
