Brain Mood, 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 brain’s symmetry and stabilize mood.
Serotonin, an important brain neurotransmitter, regulates 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.
Additionally, 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.
Brain Mood may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support a sense of well-being and mood stability.
