Serotonin Neurotransmitter – Feel Good Brain Chemical



Exert from Columbia Encyclopedia’s definition of serotonin: “It has been estimated that an adult human contains about 5 to 10 mg of serotonin, 90% of which is in the intestine and the rest in blood platelets and the brain. One role of the compound is as a neurotransmitter whose participation is being sought in diverse functions including learning, sleep, and control of mood.”

Let’s say someone suffers intestinal damage from something like leaky gut, food allergies, IBS, chrones, and poor diet. This person also suffers from depression, panic attacks and anxiety. Question to ponder: If 90% of serotonin is found in the intestines, could their ‘not so fun stuff’ be partly a result of intestinal damage? If the factory is broke, how can you crank out an end product?

At one point at my all time low I couldn’t eat anything without having severe intestinal repercussions. Let’s leave the description at that! At that time my test results indicated extremely low serotonin levels. As I healed my digestive tract with certain foods, super strain probiotics, essential oils, and enzymes – I was able to digest and absorb what I ate. As time went on I kept feeling stronger physically and mentally with less anxiety/panic.

I remember Dr. Thomas Anstett saying in a lecture, I think the was a quote from someone else “You are not what you eat, but what you absorb”. Hmmm…..anxiety therapy via the intestines?
