60 Vegetarian Capsules
provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a synergistic blend of several
ingredients to support feelings of well being. Serotonin, along with
its amino acid precursor, tryptophan, allows the brain to restore
itself to maintain a level mood. The most important nutrients for
serotonin production have been included in this formula, to help
maintain the brainís symmetry and stabilize mood.
Brain Mood may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support a sense of well being and mood stability.
Serotonin, an important brain
neurotransmitter, is key in the regulation of appetite, mood, and
melatonin production. The presence of serotonin in the brain is
associated with a balanced emotional state. This is achieved in part by
decreasing the activity of certain excitatory hormones, including
dopamine and noradrenaline. Serotonin also acts as a satiety signal in
the brain, thereby naturally regulating food intake.
as a precursor of melatonin, serotonin is involved in regulating sleep
patterns. Serotonin is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier and is
therefore synthesized in the brain. Tryptophan, an essential amino
acid, is a precursor for the synthesis of serotonin. Tryptophan crosses
the blood-brain barrier and is converted to L-5-hydroxytryptophan,
which in turn is converted into serotonin. As a metabolic intermediate
in the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, 5-HTP can also serve as
a precursor of serotonin. Although St. Johnís Wort has a variety of
traditional uses, extracts of this flowering perennial are best known
for their mood balancing properties.
St. Johnís Wort extract
is widely recognized for its positive, supportive effects on mental and
emotional function. As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential
components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important
role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids,
carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood
cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble
substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any
appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B-12). Therefore,
the body needs an adequate supply of B vitamins on a daily basis.
