Dark Season Start

Kenji Prince explains from the German school of prevention and health management/BSA-Akademie Kenji Prince explains from the German school of prevention and health management/BSA-Akademie, how you compensated for the increasing lack of UV radiation in the autumn/winter with the right diet, without falling into the snacking urge. In the spring and in the summer the stay in the Sun gives us good mood. The UV radiation inhibits the conversion of the happiness hormone serotonin to melatonin in the brain. Melatonin is a hormone that makes us sleepy and slows the metabolism. However, serotonin acts an antidepressant, makes us happy and balanced. In the dark winter months, the Sun as a good-luck charm retires but more and more. As Sun spare or mood raiser must”keep here then many people candy and sweet pastries: these dishes contain although no serotonin, but the formation of the hormone in the brain is stimulated as a reaction to eating. However the snacking urge adversely affects the Body fat percentage.

So the feeling of happiness when looking on the scale and in the mirror is increasingly non-anger over the growing weight of the body. Can you eat serotonin? Serotonin can be found not only in our body. The happiness hormone is also included in foods such as walnuts, various mushrooms, bananas, pineapple, Kiwi, cocoa and tomatoes. We can absorb a small amount of luck”directly with the food. Therefore the snacking of sweets and unwanted body fat could be circumvented by the designated food consumption theoretically. Sounds good, proves in reality unfortunately little suitable for: because obviously serotonin from the food can’t get from the blood into the brain. A healthy alternative could be eating foods that are rich in the amino acid tryptophan. This amino acid can be reached from the blood into the brain and serves the formation of serotonin.
