There are a whole host of foods that are high in vitamins and minerals and are exceptionally good for our health, and particularly our mental health.  What foods can increase the happy hormone in the body? There are too many to list them all here, however, here’s a few that are well known for their role in increasing happy hormones to get you started. 

  1. Avocado

Avocados are packed with vitamin B3, a serotonin-boosting vitamin and they also contain omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to support brain health and mood regulation.

  1. Cherry tomatoes

Tomatoes contain the phytonutrient lycopene in their skins and due to the increased amount of surface area on cherry tomatoes (as opposed to larger varieties), these provide a more concentrated amount of lycopene which prevents the build-up of pro-inflammatory compounds that researchers have linked to depression.

  1. Chocolate

Types of chocolate that are high in cocoa or dark chocolate are most effective at increasing the release of endorphins. Dark chocolate which is often known as dark chocolate often makes you more excited. This type of chocolate also increases body immunity, nourishes the heart and improves cognitive abilities.

  1. Nuts

Endorphins can be triggered by their release if you replace calorie snacks with nuts and seeds. The content of B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium and zinc can suppress cortisol production. As a result, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds can suppress feelings of depression and increase happiness.

  1. Fruits

Salmon is rich in tryptophan and omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA as well as vitamin B12 and B6, so it helps the body produce serotonin, giving us a mood boost and reduce inflammation, protecting the nerves in our brain.

  1. Spinach

Spinach contains magnesium, which helps boost energy and phenylethylamine, which can reduce monoamine oxidase break down in the same way that old-fashioned pre-Prozac anti-depressants did.
