A Banana a Day Keeps the Psychologist Away!

201701256A.jpgDid you know that eating a banana can make you happier?

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.

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, laidbackgardener.blog will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.
