Serotonin (the feel good brain chemical) is produced and absorbed in the gut. If your digestive system is impaired and you have too many toxins in your system, you wil not be absorbing the right levels of serotonin (or any other nutrients). It is therefore crucial to stop smoking and eating junk food to reduce the number of toxins in your system.
Our bodies only produce half of the amino acids we require. The rest, cal ed essential amino acids, come
from food or supplements. One of the essential amino acids is methionine, which breaks down in the
liver to produce a sub-amino acid cal ed S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e (pronounced sammy) for short!).
SAM-e is known to raise levels of the brain chemicals dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin. Low
levels of these chemicals are associated with depression. Natural food sources of methionine include
fish, meat, milk, nuts and eggs.
