Bad Mood, Weight Gain, Poor Sleep, Low Libido, Depression – Answers
Bad mood, weight gain, poor sleep, low libido, depression are affected by something many people don't talk about and it's not testosterone.
If you have any of these problems, your serotonin levels could be off. I'll turn 50 this year and like you, have been to doctors all my life. Not once has any doctor suggest I feel like crap because of serotonin levels.
As a neurotransmitter, serotonin helps to relay messages from one area of the brain to another. Serotonin affects mood, sexual desire and function, appetite, sleep, memory and learning, temperature regulation, and some social behavior. Serotonin can also affect the functioning of our cardiovascular system, muscles, and various elements in the endocrine system.
To get those serotonin levels up, try exercising more, eating more carbs, and generally distracting your lonesome thoughts. All will boost your serotonin levels. Who knew?
