One of the major causes of depression is an imbalance in the neurotransmitters in your body, such as serotonin and other pleasure-inducing chemicals. Tryptophan is a type of amino acid that actually stimulates the production of serotonin, which can ease the symptoms of depression, improve mood, and promote healthy and restful sleep. Tryptophan deficiencies have been directly linked to increased levels of depression, so adding this amino acid to your diet is a quick and simple remedy. Tryptophan can be found in measurable amounts in foods like soy-based foods, turkey, pumpkin seeds and shellfish.
