Dr G Sushma, Clinical Nutritionist, CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, shared five food items which can help with better serotonin levels.


Bananas contain tryptophan and are also rich in magnesium and potassium. Magnesium is also beneficial for regulating mood.


Pineapple's enzyme bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce brain inflammation and improve mood. It is also a good source of vitamin C, which is linked to reducing depression and anxiety symptoms.


Almonds are nutrient-dense and contain magnesium, which regulates mood and reduces anxiety.
