Just two hands of Indian walnuts per day are therapeutically equivalent to the antidepressant therapy. What is that in this product which improves the mood?
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which we consume it through the food, and the amount of this amino acid directly arranges the production of serotonin – the hormone of happiness.
Increased levels of serotonin, which acts like neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, can ease the symptoms caused by depression and cause smiles. 🙂
Indian walnuts are very rich in this amino acid, together with the vitamin B6 and magnesium, where each one of them has a positive effect on the mood.
In just few hands of Indian walnuts you will get about 1000-2000 mg tryptophan, and other products which are rich of these amino acids are the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, banana, tofu and turkey meat.
