A Natural Supplement for Healthy Mood Support.
SereTone is our specialty formula combining the 5 major elements (Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Calcium, Magnesium and 5-HTP) necessary for the production of serotonin and neurotransmitters that help support a healthy mood. All of these ingredients present in SereTone have been tested for purity as well as efficacy.
The Natural Ingredients of Our Mood Support Supplement:
•Vitamin B6 for Mood Support
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5-phosphate) is known to be deficient in the typical American diet and elderly people are particularly deficient in vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is needed in the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin. Tryptophan hyrdoxylase, the rate limiting enzyme in neural serotonin synthesis, can be inhibited by pyridoxine deficiency. Pyrdixoine is also an important cofactor in the production of AADC (L-amino acid decarboxylase), which converts 5-HTP to serotonin. A study done in 2004, suggests that low pyridoxine levels may be related to symptoms of a mood disorder.
•Folic Acid for Healthy Mood Support
Folic acid is used in many processes in the body. It is involved in the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin. Studies also suggest a link between folate (folic acid) deficiency and impaired metabolism of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline.
•Calcium for Neurotransmitter Production
Not only is calcium important in bone health, but it also plays a role in neurotransmitter production. Calcium deficiencies are known to cause mood disorders and anxiety.
•Zinc for Mood Support
It has been shown that low levels of serum zinc is associated with mood disorders, and is corrected shortly after zinc supplementation. The exact mechanism of zinc for use in mood disorders is not known.
•Magnesium for Cognitive Function
Magnesium, like vitamin B6, is known to be deficient in the typical American diet. Magnesium deficiency can result in a number of distractions such as poor attention, restlessness, and poor cognitive function.
•5-HTP for Mood Support
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid derived from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP plays an important role in the production of serotonin. 5-HTP is the precursor to serotonin from tryptophan. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (a chemical that sends a message from one nerve to another) known to play a major role in mood. Low levels of serotonin have been associated with mood disorders. 5-HTP has been shown to be effective in people with mood disorders, restless sleep, and anxiety.
SereTone should not be used with MAOIs, SSRIs, or other anti-depressant drugs. Caution is advised for those with hypercalcemia and kidney failure. Do not consume if you are pregnant or nursing.
