Serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is a neurotransmitter that contributes to well-being and happiness. Serotonin levels either rise or fall in response to the perceived abundance or scarcity of resources.
During depression, serotonin levels drop. Consequently, foods and herbs high in serotonin can help in managing depression. The single highest known sources of serotonin are walnuts and hickory. These sources are noteworthy since their serotonin levels are over 8 times those of other common sources like pineapples, bananas, kiwifruit, plums, tomatoes.
When selecting remedies, it is also worth considering your health concerns in addition to depression. For instance, if you have problems with your kidneys, you might consider pure valerian root extract because, although its serotonin levels are not as impressive as those of walnuts, it may be an overall better choice in light of the fact that valerian root is not only useful for depression (especially anxiety, mental stress and calming the nervous system in general), it may also repair kidney damage.
Additionally, consider using these items synergistically with other items. Using the valerian root example, if used alone, valerian root may need to be used in higher doses which consistently increases the sedative effects to an extent that may render you unproductive. Consequently, it may be best to combine valerian root with other natural ingredients like passion flower extract, St John's wort, inositol to enjoy greater effectiveness at a lower dose, ie 2+2=5. provanax
