    Serotonin is a very important brain chemical. One way that people see serotonin in use is in our moods and particularly in the way that we think. Think of serotonin inside your brain like a funnel that just slowly drains goodness, for those who have stress, don't get our enough, become ill, then your serotonin production within your body will drop until that funnel has nothing to give your brain. This is bad. This is what causes depression in lots of people there are ways to stop depression causing low serotonin levels.

    So you can observe how serotonin affects your mood, now how will we get more of it? Basically what you ought to boost the development of serotonin in your body is diet change, exercise, exposure to bright sunlight and if all else fails then SRRI antidepressent drugs.

    The dietary supplement 5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan (5-HTP) is promoted like a treatment for insomnia, depression, migraine, obesity and attention deficit disorder in children. It's a derivative from the amino acid tryptophan and, in fact, the body causes it to be from the tryptophan present in foods for example beef, chicken, fish, milk products and other high protein diet foods. I have found a lot of evidence that people swear by supplementing their diet with 5-HTP so this is something that you can try.

    Exercise increases serotonin. We all know how important being active is for improving our health and concentration as well as mood which is the endorphin creation that fuels higher serotonin levels. Get exercise everyday.

    Bright light increases serotonin as well as in winter a lack of serotonin may be one of the reasons behind Seasonal Affective disorder. Getting out in bright sunlight, especially in Winter when it is much tougher often to find is essential. Taking a walk on the cold sunny day during the cold months is excellent but even just in Summer some people just do not escape enough to assist raise those amounts of serotonin.

    If all of these things fail then its smart to speak to your doctor. Antidepressant drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil work by increasing serotonin levels in the brain by stopping one a part of your mind synapses from absorbing all serotonin and instead making it readily available for the parts that do need it. This will help you to be able to pop out of that depression in as little as a couple of days to a couple of weeks. The key to using these drugs to me though is that you need to do all the right things. Do not depend on the drugs when you are able instead depend on outdoor exercise and a better diet.
