    1. Food
      More complex carbohydrates, less simple ones.
      More red fish (omega-3), nuts and vegetable oils.
      Good dark chocolate.
    2. Systematic physical activity.
      Without fanaticism, of course. Moderate exercise increases the level of tryptophan, which leads to serotonin.
    3. Less stress and excitement.
      Well, everything is clear here. Depression = low serotonin.
    4. Drugs and antidepressants.
      3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methamphetamine or MDMA.
      When mdma is taken, serotonin is released in the brain. Quite short-term, but strong. Frequent use of mdma can lead to serotonin syndrome and a reduction in serotonin in the human body. (One 26-year-old “chamomile lover” had 80% less serotonin than normal)
      Selective Serotonin Reuptake inhibitors-third-generation antidepressants act by selectively inhibiting (blocking) serotonin reuptake in the brain. That is, their effect is manifested in maintaining a high concentration of serotonin in synapses.
  1. Lack of serotonin is depression!

    Serotonin levels are also greatly reduced, especially after the use of narcotic substances such as ecstasy, LSD. Alcohol also does not help to get out of depression. No wonder they say that if you feel bad – never drink alcohol.

    How to regulate serotonin ?

    • Be adequate or optimistic, learn to enjoy the little things, no complaints about life
    • Sun baths
    • The amino acid tryptophan
    • Physical exercises
    • Massage-reduces stress (reduces the hormone cortisol by 30%) and raises serotonin by the same 30%. Massage reduces depression in all known studies
    • Yoga and meditation are virtually free remedies for depression
    • A reasonable shake-up of the body is a little stress. For example, to ride on attractions. Anyone who wants to can jump with a parachute. Oh, I went too far :).Sports-by the way, also gives the body stress. As I said above, reasonable competition – the same sports team competitions will do
    • OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS. Eat fish regularly
    • Vitamins and trace elements

    Be healthy and good luck !
