If you have difficulty losing weight, there could be a simple physiological reason: low levels of serotonin. That’s because a proper balance of serotonin is important for positive mood states, good quality sleep, and a normal appetite. PureBalance™ Serotonin includes 5-HTP, the raw material the body uses to make serotonin.* The actions of serotonin are reinforced with ingredients for:

Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because the body can synthesize it when sunlight exposure is adequate. However, researchers have discovered that vitamin D insufficiency is surprisingly common, affecting as much as 70 percent of the population. Vitamin D is a great multi-tasker: it strengthens bone by aiding calcium absorption, modulates immune function, protects prostate cells, and boosts brain chemicals needed for positive mood.* Vitamin D3 is better absorbed than vitamin D2.*
5-HTP is naturally occurring amino acid and the raw material the body uses to make serotonin — a brain chemical necessary for positive mood, healthy sleep, and appetite. Research has shown that when levels of 5-HTP rise, so do levels of serotonin. Several double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials have found 5-HTP can help support a positive mood, reduce appetite, and enhance weight loss.*
Relora is a proprietary blend of standardized extracts of magnolia and phellodendron bark. It contains the calming compounds berberine and honokiol and may alleviate symptoms of occasional stress and stress-related overeating by reducing levels of the stress hormone coritsol.* Cortisol causes weight gain by increasing both appetite and fat formation, so a reduction in this hormone helps support weight loss efforts in two ways.*
L-theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves, particularly green tea. It has been clinically shown to prevent over-stimulation and produce a state of relaxed alertness by producing calming alpha brain waves.* L-theanine works by raising levels of several inhibitory neurotransmitters, including serotonin and GABA, and by preventing L-glutamic acid, an excitatory neurotransmitter, from binding to receptors.*
Q: Can you take Serotonin while taking antidepressants?
A: According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland, there are dangers in consuming both 5HTP and SSRI's (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) together. This can cause a dangerous serotonin syndrome that can lead to a coma. In general, you should be aware of your intake of medications that affect your serotonin levels if you are considering taking Serotonin. Please consult with your doctor if you have any concerns.
Q: What is the difference between all your mood products?
A: Our three mood support products are Positelle, Sernelle and Serotonin. All of which offer separate benefits:
Positelle - Supports a positive mood, calmness, and a restful sleep.*
Serenelle - Reduces stress without the drowsiness by balancing the hormones in your body and also improving metal alertness.*
PureBalance Serotonin - May increase levels of serotonin within body. Increased levels of serotonin decrease food cravings and appetite, increase overall mood, and decrease occasional stress.*
Excelent Thank you

Works really well for my mood.
