There is a lot more to cheese’s health benefits than most people think.

Cheese is one of
the most concentrated sources 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 increased 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 and protect against
tooth decay.

So come on: dig in!
