Serotonin «hormone of happiness».
What is important to know about «hormone of happiness».
Serotonin is an important neuromediators and hormone, first open by scientists in 1947. It is often called «hormone of happiness», it produced in the body in times of ecstasy, its level rises during the euphoria and decreases during the Depression. Serotonin is formed from amino acids triptofana in the pineal gland (epiphysis), with the obligatory participation of sunlight, as well as in the small intestine and pancreas, a chemical transmitter impulses between nerve cells of human brain that controls appetite, sleep, mood and emotion rights, «directs» very many body functions, plays an important role in the collapse of blood, regulation of motor and secretion in the gastrointestinal tract, enhancing peristalsis and its sekretory activity regulates vascular tone, tubal ligation, participated in the coordination of deliveries, involved in the process of ovulation, is one of the causes of stroke, myocardial infarction, ulcer disease, some mental disorders, migraine and other forms of pathology. When lowering serotonin pain sensitivity of the organism increases, even a little irritation withdraws severe pain. For example, during the attack migraine light and sound normal intensity causes severe headaches. Serotonin is also one of the important mediators of inflammation and allergies. It increases the permeability of vessels, the migration of leukocytes in the pocket of inflammation, frees up other mediators of inflammation and allergies. Local (eg, intramuscular) introduction of exogenous serotonin causes severe pain at the site introduction. Presumably, serotonin, along with histamine and prostaglandin, provoking the receptors in tissues, plays a role in causing pain impulses from the place of injury or inflammation.
In epiphysis serotonin is a precursor of melatonin ( «night worker» is translated from Greek. Incidentally, the two scientists, a synthetic melatonin, in 1962, were awarded with the Nobel Prize). Melatonin is produced only in darkness, with the participation of donors - serotonin and triptofana and recently became one of the major and most popular substances in pharmacology with a very wide range of applications. Among other things, a "night worker" noted rejuvenating effect, the ability to prevent cancers and responsibility to reconfigure the diurnal rhythm of human body in the event of the last movement from one time zone to another, the improvement of mental efficiency (this is the reason why many creative personalities prefer to build their great works at night).
Peak levels of melatonin in the body (the intensity of serotonin to melatonin) account for a period of three to four hours of the night. At this point the human body contains up to 70% of the total daily melatonin standards.
Donors of melatonin are red fescue, barley, rice, corn.
The lack of sunlight due to shorter daylight hours in the autumn - winter is the reason for the lack of elaboration of serotonin in the human body and as a consequence of the seasonal depression disease, which the classic symptoms: melancholy, lethargy, loss of sense of pleasure, a violation of thinking, memory and attention, lethargy , Increased appetite, attracted to the sweet and floury, resulting in an increase in body weight, daily sleepiness and difficulty of morning awakening.
A sick impressionable person is easier to depression, disturbing prone to selfhurting, too demanding on themselves, often referred to a character inherited through the maternal line. For women, seasonal depression (and migraine), there are three times more often than men, runs harder, due to a higher level (three times) the level of serotonin in the blood of women compared with men.
We know that serotonin deficit contributes to alcohol (alcohol temporarily increases the level of serotonin in the body, but its long-term use leads to lower serotonin levels and the need for new doses of alcohol).
In Russia in the late twentieth century, the first time in the world was open previously unknown serotonin deficiency syndrome, prevention and treatment which, according to the President of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences academician Valentin Pokrovsky, can increase the life expectancy of 20-30 years. Through asceticism russian doctors (A. Simonenko, V. Fedorov, etc.) managed to synthesize and develop the drug release serotonin, which can be called without overstating eleksirom life.
It turned out that the hormone ensures the smooth reduction of smooth muscle throughout the body and only a sufficient quantity makes these cuts energetic and smooth. Intestines, kidneys, vessels and even brain work by reducing smooth muscle.
Recent studies have shown serotonin, that it returns the life blood vessels and virtually all diseases, including varicose veins, after serotoninoterapy disappear without a trace. Quality healing after a heart attack is inconceivable without serotonin. Nearly all brain diseases associated with lack of blood supply, to better treatment, if accepted, along with hormone therapy is used.
One way to increase the level of serotonin in the human body, particularly when the lack of natural light in the autumn-winter period, a quantum oftalmoterapy (bioritmick fotostimulation retina) by Amblyostimulator «Aist-01LK», published by «Stimed». Therapeutic effect was based on stimulation of the body in the form of low-energy light pulses with certain specified optimum performance. Quantum oftalmoterapy is effective, affordable, non-invasive, non-prevention methods and treatment of various diseases in the correct application is not yielding the complications and side effects.
