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.*
Rhodiola rosea (also called golden root) is a plant that grows in cold regions across the world. Rhodiola is an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body adapt to various stressors. It supports a positive mood by increasing levels of serotonin and other neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine and dopamine, helping them cross the blood-brain barrier, and decreasing MAO (monoamine oxidase), which degrades these chemicals.*
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.*
Eating a high-carb diet puts you at risk for being overweight. Why? Simple carbs — like bread, pasta, and potatoes — are burned for energy, but in excess they’re stored as fat. Now you can eat starchy carbs in moderation...View full product details
Fatty foods can be hard to resist. While your body needs some fat to function, if you consume more than you need, the excess is stored as body fat. With Lipoquel™, you can eat fats in moderation — without sabotaging...View full product details
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.*
It takes a few weeks to kick in but I totally feel an energy level change
Have only been taking a few weeks, so hoping to feel full benefits soon. My mood has improved slightly.
I didn't realize how wonderful these supplements make you feel. My mother in law recommended a serotonin supplement to help with anxiety and these help wonders.
Works really well for my mood.
