WHAT IT IS?
Studies show that what you eat, directly affects the structure and function of your brain and ultimately, your mood. This is because of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep, appetite and mood — plus bone health and even sex. More than 90% of your serotonin receptors are located in the gut. Low levels of serotonin in the brain may cause anxiety, depression and problems with sleep.
Welcome to ‘Serotonin Eatery, Exercise and Education’ in Melbourne, Australia, a place where happiness is the main priority. The menu is carefully curated to help promote the release of serotonin. A meat-free restaurant is integrated within the space, with all food being fresh, organic, and fair trade. Also vegan, gluten-free and onion/garlic-free options are on offer. Each dish features nutritionally complex clean ingredients. Mains are packed with tryptophan, an essential amino acid, which elevates serotonin levels.
Next to this, you can join the weekly free workout sessions with a mix of exercises from circuit training, Pilates and yoga. After that, you could treat yourself to some ‘Positive Pancakes.’ Masterclasses are also hosted monthly, ranging on topics surrounding health and wellness.
