How to Improve Serotonin Levels

Serotonin is one of the feel-good brain chemicals. Here are some non-medical ways to increase your serotonin levels:
Eat turkey (more here) and “other foods notable for their levels of tryptophan, including shrimp, spinach, chicken, tuna, soybeans, milk, salmon and eggs. Vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower are also great sources.”
Eat nuts.
Eat foods in addition to nuts that contain omega-3 fatty acids.
Eat “good” carbohydrates from fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Exercise (more here).
Get a massage.
Get enough vitamin D, from sunlight and/or supplements.
