Serotonin is a neurotransmitter responsible for improving our mood, making us feel relaxed, and more self-confident. It is often referred to as the “happy hormone”.
Serotonin impacts our sleep, sex drive, memory and ability to learn, and our social behavior in general.
95% of our serotonin is manufactured in the intestines, but for the brain to use serotonin it must be produced there – which is why eating serotonin rich foods doesn't help deficiency because it cannot cross from the intestine to the brain.
Serotonin deficiency can make you feel moody, angry, overwhelmed and anxious. It can also contribute to migraines, low self-esteem, insomnia and poor cognitive function.
In short, low serotonin can make you feel pretty miserable, and is common during winter months when low light levels reduce serotonin production (SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder).
There are oral supplements that increase serotonin levels, and antidepressants, but it is far preferable to engage in activities that naturally increase the production of serotonin, such as getting more sunlight, taking exercise, meditating and listening to music.
How Does the Serotonin Boost Meditation Work?
Research shows that meditation has an impact on the brain’s production of serotonin levels, effectively melting away the stress that leads to low serotonin and subsequent anxiety, depression and insomnia.
In addition, studies show that the rhythmic stimulation of music promotes the release of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, affecting brain chemistry and resulting in stress reduction and mood elevation.
Our Serotonin Boost Meditation combines the benefits of meditation and rhythmic stimulation to naturally boost your serotonin production.
Serotonin Boost uses Alpha frequencies at 10 Hertz, a known mood-elevating frequency associated with the release of serotonin.
The alpha frequencies used promote a calming effect that will entrain your brain to a relaxed but “in the flow” state; not one that will make you feel sleepy.
This means you can listen at any time of the day: while you work or study, while traveling to or from work, or when meditating.
In addition, the music in Serotonin Boost is tuned to 528 Hertz, a frequency on the ancient Solfeggio scale said to activate DNA reparation, a process that increases energy and clarity of mind and promotes deep inner peace.
Elevate your mood today and start enjoying the benefits of increased serotonin in your brain.
