    "Starches and fibers support bacterial growth and can increase serotonin." RP

    I found this in Danny Roddy's Weblog, Ray Peat's Brain. It was, therefore, a response to a question. The subject was bruxism/restless leg syndrome, which Peat connected to irritation and inflammation in the intestine.

    It's at the bottom of the page if you're interested.

    Potato, Oh how I love thee with butter and copious amounts of salt. Alas, potato, you bring me gastric poison. Fair thee well potato, fair well. :toiletclaw

    I love me some taters but the evidence against them is getting to be too much. :thumbdown:

    I think that in that situation with the butter it would not increase serotonin... ??

    I think the butter just slows down the insulin response. The serotonin would come from the fibers of the potato.
