When most of us hear the word 'tryptophan', we think of a sleepy food coma, lying on the couch or just feeling a general calmness. But have you ever thought about the word 'trust' when tryptophan converts to serotonin and gets pumped through our body? Probably not – but you should! An interesting study associated eating tryptophan-rich foods (like turkey) with trusting others in social situations. The researchers commented that this study proved that you truly are what you eat. If you’re planning a dinner party and you want everyone to get along, serve your guests something that will promote camaraderie!
