    What is Serotonin?
    Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates appetite‚ mood‚ sexual desire‚ and sleep. Occasionally‚ individuals may not properly receive the neurotransmission signals for a variety of reasons‚ one of which may be that not enough serotonin is produced.

    5HTP and Mood
    Increasing levels of 5HTP may help with mood including mood changes caused by hormonal fluctuations or daily nervousness.
    Suggested Dosage: 50 -100 mg‚ 2 times daily with food

    Sleep Aid
    Both tryptophan and serotonin are precursors to sleep.
    Suggested dosage: 100 - 300 mg‚ 45 minutes before sleep‚ on an empty stomach

    Weight Management:
    Serotonin is linked to the body's sensing of hunger and/or starvation. Reduced levels of serotonin are reportedly linked to craving of large amounts of carbohydrate rich foods in between meals (snacking!).
