All about Serotonin 😇

Hello everyone ! Have a wonderful and safe day 🙋🏻

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 — 5 Hydroxytryphtophan —-Serotonin—- N -Acetylserotonin—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.

Boron: Benefits 🙌

Hello everyone ! Have a wonderful week ahead 🙋🏻

Boron is an underappreciated mineral which we have hardly known in the past. It is a trace mineral which is usually absorbed by our body from different dietary sources. As the soil is depleted from many trace minerals, including boron, we have started to realize it’s relevance. Its role is quite significant in our body as it takes part in many vital functions besides its essential health benefits.

The essential health benefits of boron:
1.Boron is necessary for the uptake of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in the body, thereby improves the bone strength and health. It boosts the activity of the bone-building cells called the osteoblasts.
2.Boron is essential to increase the status of vitamin D3 in the body. Vitamin D3 is a steroid which is synthesized from cholesterol when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is necessary for bone mass and prevention of heart disease and depression.
3.Since it has a robust anti-inflammatory effect; it helps to lower the risk of cancer development. Research has shown that dietary boron intake is inversely correlated to the incidence of lung cancers, breast and cervical cancers and Prostate cancers too. Because of this anti-inflammatory property, boron supplementation, when recommended in the case of osteoarthritis, have shown drastic improvement.


4.It’s daily intake can improve the overall brain functions associated with attention, perception, memory, encoding and eye-hand coordination.
5.Boron helps to boost the sex hormones in the body. In the case of women, it helps to maintain the optimal level of estrogen in the body. In the case of men, it can help to increase the free testosterone level by lowering the level of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG).
6.It facilitate and improve the metabolism of iron in the body, thereby preventing and improving Anaemia.
7.It helps to increase energy production and supports the immune system.

The daily requirement of boron is about 1 mg which can be consumed from dietary sources of fruits and vegetables. Boron supplementation is required when clinically recommended, usually in case of elderly or in inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis.

Sources are Fruits, tubers, legumes, Avocados, seeds, nuts, mushrooms, raisins, Shellfish.

Amazing benefits of Inositol 🙌

Hello everyone ! Have a wonderful and safe day 🙋🏻

Inositol is a pseudovitamin, more commonly referred to as vitamin B8. Unlike other vitamins, Inositol is not considered essential as the body can make it. The kidneys and other body parts can produce it. Inositol is mostly found in the brain. It is vital for the body because it is involved in several crucial processes of the body namely –


1. Insulin regulation and helps to maintain blood sugar. It can improve the insulin sensitivity of the insulin receptors and reduces insulin resistance.
2. Fat metabolism which prevents the fat from accumulation.
3. Neurotransmitter synthesis like Seratonin which is greatly affected by Inositol. Therefore, it affects our mood and behaviour.
4. Calcium signalling.
5. Epigenetic regulation.
6. Cytosketetal formation.

Because it plays an essential role in these processes, it helps to benefits and improve many chronic conditions like :


1.Depression

2.Anxiety

3.Panic attacks, Eating disorders, Mood disorders.

4.Polycystic ovarian syndrome

5.Infertility, regulate the Menstrual cycle.

6. Inflammation

7.Acne

8.Since it helps in insulin regulation and aids in metabolism, it helps improve diseases like Diabetes type 2, autoimmune diseases and cancers.

Food sources of Inositol are Citrus fruits, cantaloupe, grains, legumes, nuts.

Supplement: Myo inositol. Supplements and doses are recommended under Physician supervision.
