6 Whole grains

Bread, cookies, bread, and other whole-grain foods contain carbohydrates that increase the happiness hormone serotonin. Serotonin is a calm-inducing hormone that helps to prevent mood swings, relieve anxiety, and ward off depression and other brain-related disorders. Brown rice and whole wheat bread contain carbohydrates, which play a crucial role in serotonin production.

At the same time, whole grains provide the body with complex carbohydrates: they are digested more slowly, which has a good effect on blood sugar levels and also contain fiber, which is good for digestion.
