On my series on Dreams and Health we are now shedding some light on the neurotransmittor serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmittor that helps to regulate sleep.
Symptoms of a shortage of serotonine are:
A building block for this neurotransmittor is tryptophane; an amino acid. Proteins get build out of amino acids. Eight of them you have to eat because the body can not build them itself. So you have to eat food rich in tryptophane:
nuts: sesame seeds, almonds, wallnuts, cashew nut
In order to transform the tryptophane into 5 hydroxitryptophane and into serotonine you need magnesium and B vitamines. Serotonine is transformed into melatonine when daylight decreases. So taking a walk when the sun goes down will increase your melatonine level.
A lot of people that will induce dreams do so by getting B vitamines and magnesium to help 5 Htp transfer into serotonin. If you do want to buy supplements than please read the tag and avoid any supplement that has hydrolyzed on the tag. It means that the contents of your supplement has been heated up to substain its contend. So it has been created into something your body does not recognize.
