Your body needs the essential amino acid tryptophan in order to make serotonin and melatonin which help control your mood and sleep patterns. If you don't have enough tryptophan, you wont be able to make enough serotonin or melatonin, and you may start to feel depressed or have trouble sleeping. The easiest way to get tryptophan is by eating it. Its contained in many dairy products, fruits, and lean meats. Ever wonder why Thanksgiving dinner is so nap inducing? Turkey is very high in tryptophan.
Chocolate is Good for Your Heart
It sounds too good to be true, but evidence in recent years has been mounting steadily. Dark chocolate especially is an excellent source of antioxidants. A 2006 study among Dutch men showed that the ones who ate more foods made from or containing cocoa had lower blood pressure and their risk of death was 50% lower than those who ate little or no chocolate.
I Swear This Works
Ever wonder why people are more likely to utter expletives when in pain? Recent research from Keele University in England suggests that swearing originates in the right hemisphere of the brain, and is more aligned with emotion than language. It triggers adrenaline, and increases aggression, which in turn downplays pain and weakness. So, depending on the company you keep don't be afraid to let it out the next time you stub your toe.
