Happy Halloween!Pumpkin Seeds Tryptophan

 

This Halloween you may want to ease up on your vitamin B6, especially after watching a horror movie. Why?

Vitamin B6 plays a critical role in the creation of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin works with the emotional centers in your brain (amalgada) to create dreams that are highly vivid.

Vivid dreams are also more likely to be remembered. In fact, a good sign that you may have B6 insufficiency (lab test) is having non-vivid dreams that you have trouble remembering.

So after watching horror movies this Halloween, you might want to reconsider taking those B vitamins and other serotonin enhancing nutrients like 5HTP, Tryptophan (pumpkin seeds, turkey), ST. Johns Wort, etc.

Or as a trick, give your kids a B-complex then watch Poltergeist!
