Happy Hormones

Do you know that from the moment you wake up until you fall sleep, there are unseen workers regulating your body processes? Without them, your cells won’t metabolize, you won’t have good sleep, and will generally feel like you’re in a ‘bad mood’.

They are what we call, “happy hormones”. Serotonin, endorphins, and dopamine belong to this group. They are naturally produced by our bodies, but sometimes we run low on these chemicals, creating an imbalance in our systems. Don’t panic – complete, and balanced nutrition can help brighten up your day.

Serotonin is the hormone and neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep, appetite, and digestion. Magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6 help in producing more serotonin in your gut and brain.

Endorphins are released by our bodies to fight stress and relieve pains, and are released during enjoyable activities such as exercise, massage and eating. Some nutrients also play roles in boosting its production, like vitamin C and vitamin B1 proven good for brain health.

Lastly is the “feel-good” hormone dopamine. Having the right amount of dopamine is important both for your body and your brain. Iron, niacin, and vitamin B6 help increase this hormone to help improve cognitive function and attention.
