Serotonin makes us feel happy, relaxed and confident. Serotonin has numerous functions in the body including the control of appetite, sleep, memory and learning, temperature regulation, mood, behavior, cardiovascular function, muscle contraction, endocrine regulation and depression.
Serotonin deficiency can result in sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, panic disorders, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder- OCD, bulimia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder- ADD/ADHD, posttraumatic stress disorder, pre-menopausal dysphonic disorder and overeating particularly sugar cravings.
Research shows that Serotonin levels decline as we age. This explains sleep difficulties and depressed mood in older individuals.
Low levels of Serotonin are believed to be the cause of many cases of mild to severe depression- Which can lead to symptoms such as anxiety, apathy, fear, feelings of worthlessness, insomnia and fatigue.
The most concrete evidence for the connection between Serotonin and depression, is the decreased concentration of Serotonin metabolites in the cerebrospinal fluid and brain tissue of depressed people.
Serotonin levels rise after vigorous exercise and sexual intercourse.
5- HydroxyTtryptophan is a protein needed to produce Serotonin in the brain. It may be possible, that a widespread deficiency of Serotonin could partially be responsible for the high number of depressed, overweight and sleep deprived individuals in our society.
Studies show that Serotonin deficiency may be a factor in Autism, ADD, ADHD, OCD and other cognitive-behavioral disorders.
While food provides some 5-HydroxyTrytophan, our diet may not include enough to make adequate amounts of Serotonin. Vitamin C is also required for the conversion of 5-HTP to Serotonin.
At the ANTIAGING Institute of California, we provide you with the highest quality 5-HTP produced from the natural plant Griffonia Simplicifolia, together with Methyl Cobalamin, the type of Vitamin B12 that absorbs directly in the brain.
Precursor to Serotonin may help with:
- Anxiety, apathy, fear and feelings of worthlessness
- Carbohydrate Cravings and WEIGHT LOSS
- Premenstrual Syndrome mood swings and cramps
One of the very important factors in supplementing with 5-HTP is its excellent tolerability and the lack of developing tolerance during long term use.
