Natural Anti-depressants Can Improve Your Serotonin Levels
Sertona ™is a proprietary blend of St. John’s Wort extract, SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine) and 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) designed to support and aid healthy serotonin levels which decline with age and stress. Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, is important for normal mood, sleep, concentration and appetite. Many individuals cannot tolerate anti-depressants because of their side effects and want natural remedies. It is unclear how St. John’s Wort works. It appears that its active ingredients hypericin, hyperforin and adhyperforin increase serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline levels which elevates the mood.
5-hydroxytryptophan is an amino acid that is derived from another amino acid, tryptophan. 5-HTP is used by the body to make serotonin and melatonin which affect mood and sleep, respectively. Low levels of serotonin and melatonin can cause depression and insomnia.
S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM-e) is a chemical that occurs naturally in the body. Its involved brain and liver function and over thirty-five metabolic processes. One of the processes that SAM-e is involved in, transmethylation, boosts serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine levels which contributes to its anti-depressant effects.
SAM-e is important for the production of a powerful antioxidant, glutathione and other antioxidants, cysteine and taurine which help get rid of free radicals that damage cells, and repair the body. SAM-e can benefit those suffering from depression, anxiety, heart disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and chronic lower back pain.*
Sertona™ may be helpful to those suffering from a low mood, anxiety, lack of motivation, insomnia, crying spells, and food cravings. Sertona™ can be used along with EasyCalm and L-Theanine Rx to promote a healthy mood.*
