There is a lot more to cheese’s health benefits than most people think. Cheese is good for you! It is a food with a high proportion of key nutrients, including calcium, protein, and vitamins A, B12 and D.
But this is the very good news: cheese actually contains plentiful levels of Tryptophan, an essential amino acid that is used in the body’s development of Serotonin. In a nutshell, eating cheese can help us relax and even help us get to sleep.
What’s more is that increase in levels of Tryptophan can lead to improvements for conditions such as Premenstrual Disorder and SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). To this end we suggest creating your own New Year cheese board to try and cheer up any winter glumness.
And!… we’ve been told by some clever dental people that eating a piece of cheese after a meal or snack can actually help restore minerals to tooth enamel, protecting against tooth decay. So good for your teeth too…
So come on: dig in!
