An airport in London is working with a nutritionist to introduce meals that contain mood-enhancing hormones to keep travelers happy.

Jo Travers, the nutritionist working with Gatwick Airport, says there are “happy” chemicals, specifically serotonin and dopamine, that keep your brain flowing, and low levels of these chemicals can lead to fatigue and a deficiency of Omega 3 can also cause mood swings.

The meals will be tested in the airport for a month and include a salmon citrus salad and a falafel and fattoush salad.

Other airports have taken similar steps to ensure customer satisfaction, such as Vitalit Laboratories Int.’s snack and beverage line FlyFit, which is “made to counter the stressful effects of traveling,” and is available in 50 airports, reports Los Angeles Times.
