Serotonin Brain Food™ is designed to support the body's natural production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter essential to mental well-being.
This natural formula contains the precursors and cofactors required for healthy serotonin metabolism.
Supports positive mood & social ability†
Maintains healthy appetite & digestion†
Promotes calmness & sense of well-being†
Relieves stress and frustration†
"Serotonin Brain Food gives me a baseline zen feeling... It makes major disturbances throughout the day feel less catastrophic. I definitely think you should try it out, I love this stuff."
With Serotonin Brain Food™, you are NOT ingesting the neurotransmitter directly.
Like all of our Brain Food™ supplements, Serotonin Brain Food™ contains the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are involved in the metabolism of that respective neurotransmitter. You are not directly ingesting or manipulating that neurotransmitter. By providing your body the nutrients it needs to metabolize these neurotransmitters, it is able to achieve optimal levels naturally. This method of naturally finding optimal levels also removes the chance of habituation or down-regulation, so can safely take our Brain Foods to achieve and maintain optimal levels of Serotonin for long-term use.
A study published in the journal Phytomedicine demonstrated rhodiola's ability to decrease stress, feelings of anxiety, and "the blues".
The researchers concluded, "These findings suggest that Rhodiola Rosea, may possess a more favorable risk to benefit ratio for individuals with mild to moderate [mood concerns]"
Not only did rhodiola produce positive results, but it did so without any undesirable or unwanted results. 
Rhodiola exhibits more of it's adaptogenic qualities by decreasing reactive oxygen species (ROS) - aka free radicals - meaning it has anti-oxidative properties. 
Rhodiola has also shown that it can support healthy glucose & lipid metabolism. 
The amino acid l-tryptophan is critical in a number of metabolic functions, including it’s role as the main precursor to serotonin, making it essential for the synthesis of this neurotransmitter. 
One study found that tryptophan supplementation demonstrated an increase in serotonin levels and “that increased serotonin can decrease quarrelsomeness and increase agreeableness in everyday life. Social interactions that are more agreeable and less quarrelsome are associated with better mood.” 
Vitamin B3 or nicotinamide is a member of the B-vitamin family which is known to support healthy neurological function, mental wellbeing, energy metabolism, and circulation. 
Nicotinamide protects against weight gain in high-fat diets and protects mitochondrial function
In one study, Vitamin B3 supplementation led to increased levels of NAD+, “culminating in enhanced oxidative metabolism and protection against high fat diet-induced metabolic abnormalities. Consequently, our results indicate that the natural vitamin, NR, could be used as a nutritional supplement to ameliorate metabolic and age-related disorders characterized by defective mitochondrial function.” 
Vitamin B3, or nicotinamide has also been shown to support healthy circulation, carbohydrate metabolism, and nerve function. 
Nicotinamide Supports Healthy DNA Function and Cellular Division
A study published in the Journal of Nucleic Acids reported that nicotinamide supplementation supports normal, healthy DNA repair, division, and maintenance of genomic stability. 
Zinc is a mineral that plays a crucial role in numerous metabolic functions, including being a molecular signal for our immune cells. 
Zinc Glycinate has highest absorption rate of all zinc supplements
An independent test conducted at the Ohio State University’s School of Human Nutrition ranked the most common forms of zinc supplements from highest to lowest absorption rates:
The results: “zinc glycinate > zinc picolinate >zinc oxide > zinc gluconate”. 
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. It is involved in more 300 biological processes that include energy metabolism, neurological function, cellular and DNA replication, and normal, healthy brain function. 
Underestimated Concerns of Suboptimal Magnesium Levels
According to one study, nearly half of the US population is not getting enough magnesium, which could contribute to states that are more dire than many would guess. This is due to the sheer number of biological processes that depend on adequate amounts of this mineral. 
Magnesium Supplementation Improves Subjective and Objective Sleep Experiences
A sleep study testing the impact of magnesium supplementation on sleep concluded that magnesium “appears to improve subjective measures such as ISI score, sleep efficiency, sleep time and sleep onset latency, early morning awakening, and likewise, objective measures such as concentration of serum renin, melatonin, and serum cortisol, in elderly people.” 
Most companies use "proprietary blends" so they don't have to tell you the amount of each ingredient in their formulas. At Natural Stacks we believe it's your right to know exactly what you're putting into your body. We proudly publish our innovative formulas and ingredient suppliers in an open source format.

Responsible for motivation, memory, and creativity, dopamine is a key neurotransmitter that also increases alertness and assertiveness.Learn More
Serotonin Brain Food™ is the first all-natural supplement designed to optimize levels of the neurotransmitter Serotonin.
You are NOT ingesting the neurotransmitter directly. Like all of our Brain Foods, Serotonin Brain Food™ contains the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are involved in the metabolism of that respective neurotransmitter. You are not directly ingesting or manipulating that neurotransmitter. By providing your body the nutrients it needs to metabolize these neurotransmitters, it is able to achieve optimal levels naturally. This method of naturally finding optimal levels also removes the chance of down-regulation, so you can safely take our Brain Foods to achieve and maintain optimal levels of Serotonin for long-term use.
If you want to wake up to a positive mood, then take Serotonin Brain Food. Contains an amino acid precursor (L-Tryptophan), serotonin metabolism cofactors (Vitamin B3, Zinc, & Magnesium), and an herbal extract to reduce cortisol (Rhodiola Rosea). This natural formula contains the precursors and cofactors required for healthy serotonin metabolism.
You can add Dopamine Brain Food™ with your routine in the morning, and take GABA Brain Food™ at night for relaxation.
You should take 2-3 capsules to support a positive mood, during situations of stress or irritability, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Avoid use in the evening. Only take it in the morning and afternoon for best optimal results!
If for whatever reason you're unsatisfied with your Natural Stacks products, you can return the product within 30 days for a full refund. We also provide actionable tips on our blog and newsletter for you to maximize your performance with our premium products.
