All about Serotonin ๐Ÿ˜‡

Hello everyone ! Have a wonderful and safe day ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

Seratonin is a neurotransmitter, secreted in the gut and the brain. It plays a massive role in our state of wellbeing. It is responsible for giving us a feeling of a happy state of mind, a sense of satisfaction, relief from pain and control our impulses. It helps to co-ordinate the autonomic, motor, cognitive functions, appetite, emotions and feelings. It also controls our circadian rythm, which is the awake sleep cycle as a precursor of melatonin.


Seratonin cycle:
Tryptophan โ€” 5 Hydroxytryphtophan โ€”-Serotoninโ€”- N -Acetylserotoninโ€”Melatonin

When serotonin is low, it may give rise to several problems in our overall wellbeing. Before diving into the symptoms, it is essential to know what causes to reduce the level of serotonin in the body:

Causes of Low Serotonin :
1.Sedentary Lifestyle
2.Inadequate sleep.
3.Chronic Brain inflammation
4.Leaky gut syndrome
5.Poor blood sugar control
6.Magnesium deficiency
7.Omega 3 fatty acid deficiency.
8.Vitamin deficiency, namely Vitamin D, B1, B2, B6 and folate.

The different symptoms when the serotonin level is low:
1.Anxiety and Panic attacks
2.Social phobia
3.Mood swings
4.Depression
5.Low self-esteem
6.Overtly sensitive, having a sense of guilt, regrets
7.Trouble sleeping
8.Obsessive behaviour like controlling, impulsive, neat freak.

The serotonin level can be measured by Urine biomarker test (Organic Acid test).

The natural ways to improve the level of serotonin are:


1. Reducing the intake of carbohydrate, especially with a high glycaemic index like sugar, processed food. Also, switching the diet to a moderate amount of carbohydrate with a low glycaemic index like brown rice, whole grains.
2.Exercise increases the tryptophan level and balances the serotonin and dopamine balance.
3. Get better quality of sleep every day by following a routine. Make sure to get up and sleep at the same time daily to keep the awake sleep cycle intact.


4.Exposure to sunlight so the UV light absorbed in the skin can simulate Vitamin D production, which in turn stimulates serotonin production. That is why, in winters, many people suffer from depression and mood swings due to lack of exposure to sunlight.
5.Meditation helps to maintain the serotonin dopamine balance and the calmness of mind.
6.Getting a cold shower of 2-3 minutes will also stimulate the serotonin receptors. So, after a cold shower, people tend to feel relaxed.
7.Getting a body massage also helps to stimulate serotonin receptors.

8. Seratonin boosting foods: Wild-caught fatty fishes, green tea, turmeric, fermented foods, nuts, seeds, low glycaemic fruits and veggies, dark chocolate.

Blessings and much love to all ๐Ÿ’

  2. Thanks for another informative blogpost. I have writted a bio/memoir on my experience with mental illness that mentions seratonin; if I place a link from that book to this post, in the ebook version, will that be okay with you?
