    High (extracellular) serotonin causes Alzheimer's and depression

    The utter corruption of "journalism" is once again on full display in MSM. The actual scientific study is very clear in its statements/conclusions that a decrease in the levels of serotonin transporter (5-HTT) led to accumulation of beta-amyloid and onset of depression.

    PUFA And Serotonin Promote Each Other, And Likely Cause Mental Illness

    I neat new study that draws a direct parallel between PUFA-driven inflammation, serotonin and depression. As the study demonstrated, high levels of the PUFA arachidonic acid (AA) are highly correlated with lower density (expression) of the serotonin transported (SERT, 5-HTT), and the...

    Higher Serotonin Availability May Be The Cause Of Cognitive Impairment / Dementia

    Some of you may have seen this study in the news lately. However, it is being presented as the exact opposite as what my title says. The media titles all over the Internet proclaim that "John Hopkins study shows low serotonin causes dementia". However, if you look at the actual study you will...

    Serotonin Production In The Gut Is Fully Controlled By Microbiome

    A year and a half ago I posted about a study which found that serotonin production in the gut depends on the bacteria living in the colon. Serotonin Production (gut) Depends On Bacteria At the time, the study was considered controversial as the role of microbiome in serotonin production was...
