5 Foods to ADD to Your Diet

Jump to:

Low levels of dopamine have been linked to ADHD, depression, trouble focusing or concentrating, low energy, and even weight gain.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps your brain recognize sources of pleasure. Stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition and even some medications can reduce the amount of dopamine in your body.

The good news is that adding certain foods to your diet can help boost dopamine levels. Here are the top five:

1. Almonds
2. Avocados
3. Lima beans
4. Pumpkin and sesame seeds
5. Bananas

Of course, it also helps if you can reduce your stress level, get more sleep, and eat a healthy diet. 🙂
