Are you looking to support healthy mood and normal mood related food cravings? Do you want to support a healthy response to stress or inflammation? Do you have a Fast MAOA gene?†
Modern living can affect our mood. It has been shown that exposure to stress, harmful chemicals, as well as poor choices in our diets and lifestyles, can alter how we experience the world. Science is indicating that these things may decrease the levels of our “feel good” chemical in our brains called serotonin. Serotonin can be made in neurons and travels to receptors in the brain that help with normal feelings of calm and happiness.
Serotonin Nutrients is designed to support both the healthy production and function of serotonin. Healthy serotonin levels enable mood support.†
Utilizing necessary nutrient cofactors, a patented saffron extract, curcumin, and inositol, this complex formula is a unique serotonin support supplement.†
Serotonin Nutrients includes:†
- The essential nutrients (5-HTP and vitamin B6) to manufacture serotonin.
- Support for a normal inflammatory response (Curcugen curcumin extract) and niacin levels so our body's stores of tryptophan can be used for serotonin production and not stolen to make Kynurenine and NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).
- A patented botanical called Safr’Inside™ that supports the maintenance of healthy serotonin levels all the way to the serotonin receptor.
- Inositol to support healthy serotonin receptor signaling.
One of the building blocks to increase serotonin levels is the amino acid l-tryptophan. Tryptophan is the least common amino acid in the human diet.
Tryptophan competes with other amino acids for blood brain barrier passage.
In times of stress, the body chooses to use this limited supply of tryptophan to support a healthy stress response and healthy inflammatory response. This may contribute to serotonin deficiency. A highly bioavailable form of curcumin called Curcugen® is included in this formula to support a normal response to inflammation as well as serotonin production.†
The niacin present in Serotonin Nutrients helps preserve normal serotonin production.†
Not only is the primary building block of 5-HTP included, but also the necessary cofactor P-5-P is as well. Without adequate vitamin B6 in the form of Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, the enzyme (AADC) that makes serotonin cannot function.†
Once serotonin is made and passed into the synapse to travel to and bind to the serotonin receptors, a few things can happen. First, it can be degraded by the MAOA and MAOB enzymes. This is more common in people that have “fast” MAOA and MAOB activity due to genetic differences. Second, it can be taken back by the serotonin transporter and never make it to the serotonin receptor.
For centuries, cultures around the globe have found success in supporting a healthy mood with the herb saffron. Science is now explaining some of the functions of the chemicals found in saffron. The chemicals found in the patented Safr’Inside™ ingredient used in Serotonin Nutrients appear to both slow MAOA and MAOB as well as slow the reuptake of serotonin by inhibiting the activity of the SLC6A4 transporter. This transporter is responsible for recycling more serotonin from the synapse after it has stimulated the post-synaptic receptor so it can be used again. As a result, this saffron derived ingredient supports optimal serotonin levels traveling to the serotonin receptors.†
Once bound to the receptors, the serotonin will initiate a signaling process that relies on inositol to carry out its function. Serotonin Nutrients includes this important ingredient to make sure the support for serotonin starts at the beginning all the way to the end.†
If you are lacking adequate serotonin or mood support, you may find that you crave foods and behaviors that support optimal serotonin levels. This may lead to an increase in consumption of carbs and sweets and other addictive foods and behaviors. By supporting balanced serotonin levels, Serotonin Nutrients may support healthy food and behavior choices.†
Maybe you have tried to take 5-HTP to support a healthy mood and it hasn’t worked. Why? It may be that the making of serotonin is not enough. The body also needs support to make sure that serotonin gets where it needs to go, and does what it is supposed to do.†
Serotonin Nutrients supports both the kynurenine and serotonergic pathways. When the kynurenine pathway is slowed, and the serotonergic pathway is healthy, we maintain optimal levels of serotonin.†
