In Response To: Re: Seratonin In Panic Disorder (Marcelle)

Serotonin comes from tryptophan, an amino acid found in protein foods. The key to getting serotonin into the brain is to eat protein foods with carbohydrates. Eat foods high in complex carbs and low in fat(fat inhibits serotonin production). Carbohydrates can be used to boost serotonin when its most needed-typically about three hours after a meal or at times whhhen daily stress is the highest. The snack should be low in fat, contain at least 40-45 grams of carbs, and if weight maintenance is an issue, no more than 210 calories. The mood enhancing effects should be noticeable in about 30 minutes, depending on the size of your last meal and how empty your stomach is.
