SerotoninSerotonin, also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine or 5-HT, is a neurotransmitter found naturally in the human blood stream, pineal gland and gastrointestinal tract.
Serotonin is an important regulator of sleep, mood, body temperature, appetite, sexual interest, and pain. If your serotonin is too low, you may experience a multitude of symptoms, from depression and mood swings to anxiety and angry outbursts. High serotonin levels can cause a high pain tolerance, elevated mood and restful sleep.
Serotonin is used in many anti-depressant drugs and can help with phobias, social anxiety and other psychological imbalances.
