Serotonin supports satiety signals in the brain, naturally regulating food intake.
The presence of serotonin in the brain is associated with a balanced emotional state.
- This is achieved in part by decreasing the activity of certain excitatory hormones, including dopamine and noradrenaline.
- Serotonin also acts as a satiety signal in the brain, thereby naturally regulating food intake.
- Additionally, as a precursor of melatonin, serotonin is involved in regulating sleep patterns.
