Foods That Help Improve Mood

Research has shown that certain foods alter mood by influencing the level of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. Three neurotransmitters, dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin, are produced in the brain from the components of certain foods. People are more alert when their brains are producing dopamine and norepinephrine. Serotonin production is linked to a positive mood of calm and reduced anxiety. These are top foods that can improve mood.
