8 Foods That Are Known To Make You Happy

Bananas

Your blood homocysteine levels may be lowered by eating bananas as they contain vitamin B6 (pyridoxine). Dementia and cognitive decline are associated with high levels of homocysteine (an amino acid).

Avocados

There is a good amount of vitamin E in avocados, which protects brain cells from free radical damage caused by pollution, smoking, and digestion of food.

Tomatoes

Fresh and canned tomatoes both contain a lot of vitamin C and lycopene, an antioxidant that protects brain cells.

Chicken Breasts

People over 70 are more likely to suffer mental decline if their blood levels of selenium, an antioxidant, are low. A precursor to the feel-good hormone serotonin, tryptophan is also found in chicken and other poultry.

Spinach

Spinach contains folate, which protects against depression. Antidepressants may be less effective in treating people with folate deficiencies.

Pistachios

A pistachio nut contains lutein, which is capable of repairing damage caused by free radicals, unstable molecules, smoking, and pollution to the brain.
