In this video, we’re going to talk about how to boost your serotonin: the happiness hormone.

Serotonin is a hormone that has many important functions in the body.


• Contributes to feelings of happiness

• Raises mood

• Calms the mind

• Increases focus

• Reduces anxiety

A deficiency in serotonin can cause:

• A lowered mood

• Depression

• Anxiety

• Irritability

• Low self-esteem

• Insomnia

• Memory loss

The question is, what are the best ways to boost your serotonin? You can boost your serotonin naturally with these six tips!

1. Take L-tryptophan on an empty stomach (converts to serotonin)

2. Exercise (increases the conversation from tryptophan to serotonin)

3. Sun/vitamin D (Increases conversation from tryptophan to serotonin)

4. Probiotics, including kimchi and sauerkraut (increases tryptophan in the gut)

5. Massage (increases serotonin and lowers cortisol)

6. Fasting (significantly increases serotonin levels)

If your mood is feeling low, try starting with intermittent fasting and see if your mood doesn’t improve! Let me know how it works for you in the comments below.
