It may surpirse you to learn that scientists have discovered that our stressful lifestyles not only affect our bodies but they adversely affect our brains, too.. Specifically, stress, poor diet, and insufficient exercise cause our brains to produce low levels of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that regulates our mood, appetite, and ability to get a good nights sleep. When our brains arent producing enough serotonin, we may experience depression, suffer from obesity or insomnia, or otherwise function at less than our mental and physical peak.How do our brains produce serotonin? By synthesizing the essential amino acids we gain from eating a proper diet. But diet alone isnt enough (or millions and millions of us wouldnt suffer the ill effects of low serotonin levels), and scientists and researchers have finally come up with a groundbreaking supplement that will safely and efficiently boost serotonin levels and reduce depression, obesity, insomniia, migraine headaches, and anxiety. That supplement is 5-HTP.
