Serotonin is one of the neurotransmitters in the brain that has a significant role in brain functions. It is responsible for the emotional well being of a person. It could be said that a happy and balanced person has the right serotonin level in his body. Any drop in the level of this neurotransmitter would result to psychological problems like anxiety, depression, mood swings, irritability and other psychological and physical disorders.


It is involved in the control of sleep, appetite, mood, memory and learning, sexual behavior, endocrine and temperature regulation, muscle contraction, cardiovascular function and depression. It is responsible for the emotional well-being of a person.


It is considered to be the most widespread network in the human brain and every single neuron or brain cell can influence several hundred thousands of neurons. Thus, its impact on brain functioning is in a very large extent than any other neurotransmitters. Hence, it is most implicated in the treatment of various psychological disorders like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia or obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is also implicated in the treatment of pain, stroke, obesity, vascular disorders, hypertension, nausea and migraine.


People who are found to have low serotonin levels are often advised to get a good dose of daily exercise. Exercise is the best way to increase this neurotransmitter in the body. Too much tension, stress and lack of sleep contribute to its decrease. And exercise in known to be the best way to increase the level more especially when it is done on a regular basis. Also, another way of increasing its level is by eating properly with foods that contain tryptophan, an essential amino acid that produce B-vitamin niacin that later helps produce serotonin.


Deficiency in this neurotransmitter arises from lack of sleep, too much tension and stress. Emotional well-being would be very much affected and being emotionally unstable lead to a lonely life and when left unguarded it may lead to serious disorder like depression.
