A Banana a Day Keeps the Psychologist Away!

That’s because it contains tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts to serotonin, the so-called “feel good hormone”. It helps you relax, improves your mood and makes you happier.

In addition, bananas contain vitamin B6 that regulates blood glucose levels, which can also help boost morale.

During the winter, when so many people suffer from seasonal depression, eating a banana from time to time could be a good idea.
