Eating desserts can make you happy.
When you are in a bad mood, your brain needs some serotonin or dopamine and adrenaline. Sweets or high starch foods can quickly meet this need. This is a rather complicated mechanism, but it is worth your further understanding.
First of all, we know that Tryptophan is an important source of serotonin in the brain, and serotonin can make people feel happy. Tyrosine is the source of dopamine and adrenaline in the brain, which invigorates people.
The reason why high-sugar and high-starch foods can be quick and pleasant is that after eating, insulin will increase rapidly, and insulin will reduce the concentration of tyrosine and phenylalanine in the blood, making tryptophan at an advantage in competition.
And it it quickly enters the cells to convert into serotonin, enters the brain, and makes people feel happy. Therefore, the concentration of tryptophan in the body is still very low, but it achieves the purpose of increasing serotonin. Meanwhile, dopamine and the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain can make people happy.
Therefore, when you are in a bad mood, you can try to eat desserts.
