The essential ingredient in any recipe for good health is motivation. Without motivation, you will struggle to eat well and train well, as any struggling athlete will attest to. In order for us to keep our motivation levels high we rely on serotonin, a chemical that we release that plays an important part in our mood. While exercise in itself increases the level of serotonin we release, sometimes we need to add natural nutrients that boost serotonin production to enhance workouts.
What is Serotonin?
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an essential role in regulating our concentration span and our mood. If serotonin levels are low we become prone to periods of low mood and, in serious cases, depression. The first indication that you may have low serotonin levels will be a decrease in appetite, poor sleep and low sex drive, as well as a lack of motivation to get out and about each day. If you feel that you are suffering severely from these symptoms then we would advise that you seek medical support, however, Naturewell can offer the best smoothies in Los Angeles to help you make changes.
Some of the best foods for boosting serotonin, that can be found in our Los Angeles juice bar, are:
- Soy milk
You can add these ingredients to our favorite smoothie or choose from our carefully curated recipes.
