Why is Serotonin so Important?
Serotonin is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) in the brain. This neurotransmitter has been the subject of numerous magazine articles, as well as television news health segments. Serotonin is commonly known as “the mood chemical”. Serotonin imbalance and deficiency have been implicated in a number of clinical disorders including depression, premenstrual syndrome, migraine headaches, eating disorders, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Although present in minute amounts in the human body, serotonin plays an incredibly important role in so many vital physical and emotional functions.
Serotonin is made inside the body from the amino acid, tryptophan. This amino acid is found in various food sources, and high amounts are found in carbohydrates, chocolate and other sweets. When a person ingests chocolate, the body converts tryptophan, the building block into serotonin.
As a real life example, during a woman’s cycle, serotonin deficiency may occur. Although many women do suffer from serotonin deficiency, men are not precluded from this condition. When this happens, the body will send out a signal that it needs more serotonin in the form of a food craving. Therefore, when the craving occurs, this will motivate the person subconsciously to eat chocolate or other sweets that can supply the tryptophan. The affected person does not realize that the body is serotonin deficient; they only know they really want that handful of Hershey Kisses®. Of course, the aftermath of this ingestion is the weight gain, adverse cholesterol effects and other detrimental effects from excessive eating of carbohydrates.
