Anorexia Bulimia replenishing Serotonin levels and mood booster recipe


To replenish my depleted serotonin levels and to boost my mood, I used this recipe three times a week. We all know benefits of banana (contains tryptophane) , walnuts are an ultimate brain booster food, (rich in Omega 3s  I’m a die hard fan of them) and pineapple doesn’t just boost the serotonin levels but also improves your mood and gives you a good buzz especially in those dreary winter days.
