How does Humor against nervous hunger

The tryptophane

Tryptophan is able to influence the choice of foodTryptophan is an essential ami-
no acid needed to the synthesis of nicotinic acid (vitamin B3) by the body, as well as a precursor of the neurotransmitter seroto-
Many studies have shown that tryptophan is beneficial for weight loss because it is able to influence the choice of food, reducing the desire to eat sweet foods and encouraging the consumption of protein nutrients.
The assimilation of tryptophan in the brain is facilitated by the presence of vitamin B6 and vitamin C. Some researchers have noted that in the period in which both animals and men are fed with diets deficient in the amino acid tryptophan, their appetite grows symptomatically.

l tryptophan is present in protein foods with eggs, nuts, meat and milk. The synthesis and cleavage of tryptophan and its conversion into serotonin requires nutrients such as vitamin B6, vitamin PP and glutathione. A diet deficient in tryptophan induces low levels of serotonin in the brain.
With this limitation the brain diffuses the signals characteristic of the fast, triggering appetite regulatory centers in order to push food intake and carbohydrates in particular.

A diet rich in carbohydrates is a quick source of energy for the bodyThis is caused by two reasons: first, a high-carbohydrate diet is a quick source of energy for the body. In addition a diet with high levels of carbohydrates and low protein content, increases the amount of tryptophan that reaches the brain through the blood-brain barrier.

More tryptophan reaches the brain and more serotonin will be generated, and the signals to the appetite regulatory centers will become stronger, so will stop the demand for food, at least momentarily.
A consequence of the low levels of serotonin is the carbohydrate craving and a significant carbohydrate intake leads to obesity. These “cravings” (compulsive search for particular foods or instinctive) are also the main signals of bulimia.

Tryptophan has the same consequences of a meal based on carbohydrates, given that supports the release of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain and this would clarify the least desire for foods based on carbohydrates accompanying its suministracion.
The incessant mania of snacks rich in carbohydrates, often associated to a considerable demand for food characteristic of people with the problem of disproportionate weight, can be induced by an irregularity in the process of production of serotonin within the brain, which can be controlled from tryptophan.
