ASPARAGUS: THE FEEL-GOOD VEG
If you’re feeling low, try eating some asparagus. This nutritious vegie is one of the best plant sources of tryptophan, an amino acid that is essential for producing serotonin, our main “feel-good” hormone. Tryptophan is also needed to produce melatonin, which helps us sleep. Eating asparagus is also good for digestive health as it contains a
compound called inulin, which acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotic foods help promote
the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
