Good intentions for 2019

Do you already have new good intentions? Will 2019 be a healthier, more fun and better year for you than 2018? Then make sure the base is good. Give yourself the best foundation by thinking about your own body first. A healthy intestinal flora is the basis for healthy and happy thoughts. Be good to your body and the body is good to you.


In our opinion, serotonin is the most important neurotransmitter (signal substance in the brain, among other things) for long-term satisfaction. Satisfaction can lead to long-term happiness because you are less inclined to choose short-term happiness, such as poor nutrition, smoking, gambling, porn, drinking and substance use. These remedies for happiness provide a temporary high like cocaine does. If your serotonin level is low you are more susceptible to the “temporary highs” which will cause your serotonin to become lower and lower and you will pursue more of those temporary highs. You become less and less happy with those “temporary highs” and through habituation they ultimately make you unhappy. This is a negative spiral because you keep making the wrong decision to be temporarily “high”.

People who have more serotonin often make better (social) decisions and opt less for the “temporary highs” because the need is not there. This also ensures that serotonin levels remain at a healthy level or even increase. By reading this article we hope that you will take a step in the right direction and enter the positive spiral of increased serotonin.

You can read here how important serotonin is and in what ways you can increase it even more.

If you cannot easily get out of the negative spiral because you are actually addicted to your bad lifestyle, you can use our services, such as nutritional coaching, lifestyle coaching or even a trip session. A trip session works as a kickstart for one positive serotonin spiral.


serotonin intestines -Supplements that give everyone a positive boost
90% of your serotonin is produced in the intestine using bacteria

Probiotics are bacteria that you can take in pill form or as a food (yogurt/kefir). These bacteria nest in your intestines. Certain bacterial strains are necessary to pre-digest essential substances from food that our body cannot digest itself (e.g. dietary fiber). Because the bacteria in the intestines take care of a very large part of the digestion of food and partly determine how you feel, it is wise to ensure that the right bacterial strains live in your intestines. There are a number of strains that ensure that more serotonin is formed from the right diet.

The bacteria below are serotonin-raising strains.

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus casei
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum

There are a lot of probiotic brands and supplements. After online research, we noticed Ultra Jarro Dophilus. These probiotics survive stomach acid due to the use of a special gel. Furthermore, Ultra Jarro Dophilus contains seven other valuable bacterial strains. You only need to do this treatment once.

The production of serotonin

Below you can see how serotonin can be formed. All substances mentioned are therefore necessary and can be obtained from food or supplemented with supplements to be on the safe side.

Tryptophan is the amino acid that is used as a building block for serotonin. Tryptophan is better absorbed if no other amino acids (building blocks of proteins) are present. You take tryptophan before going to sleep.


Magnesium citrate is the most absorbable form of magnesium. In addition to forming serotonin, magnesium is involved in thousands of other biochemical processes. You take the extra magnesium citrate before going to sleep.


To meet all the B vitamins and zinc required for the process of producing serotonin, we recommend Animal pak. Animal pak is a high-dose multivitamin and contains many more vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to your health. Half a dose per day is enough. Animal pak can be purchased in powder form or pills. You can take the pills every other day. You can use half the dose of the powder per day. Athletes are advised to take a full dose before exercising.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is actually already in Animal pak, but the intake could be a bit higher. Especially in winter. In summer, the body produces some vitamin D in the sun. If there is little summer sun, take extra vitamin D before going to sleep.


DHA and EPA are omega 3 fatty acids that are commonly found in fish oil. DHA and EPA are involved in serotonin release and sensitivity. Take Omega 3 with DHA and EPA before going to sleep.
