Quality of Life Labs PureBalance Serotonin - 90 Capsules

If you have difficulty losing weight, there could be a simple physiological reason: low levels of serotonin. That’s because a proper balance of serotonin is important for positive mood states, good quality sleep, and a normal appetite.

PureBalance Serotonin includes 5-HTP, the raw material the body uses to make serotonin.  Serotonin in the body helps to make one feel relaxed, happy, and confident.

The actions of serotonin are reinforced with ingredients for:

  • Weight control: Relora may reduce stress and stress-related eating. Serotonin also is known to affect appetite, especially for carbohydrates. Low levels of the amino acid tryptophan, a precursor to serotonin in the body, have been linked to binge eating and carbohydrate cravings that lead to unwanted weight gain.

  • Tryptophan competes with large neutral amino acids for transport across the blood-brain barrier. Studies have shown that the plasma tryptophan ratio to other amino acids in obese patients is well below normal, suggesting a serotonin deficiency.

  • Stress management: Stress is a common cause of low serotonin levels, resulting in a snowballing feedback cycle of disrupted sleep, depression, anxiety and fatigue.

  • High levels of the stress hormone cortisol rob us of serotonin. Rhodiola rosea helps the body adapt to stress, while L-theanine increases the generation of relaxing alpha brain waves, lowering cortisol levels.

  • Mood support: Insufficient vitamin D may negatively affect mood, while Rhodiola rosea has been used for centuries to promote a positive outlook.

  • Sleep support: Low serotonin levels result in sleep disruption and sleep disorders, including insomnia. L-theanine encourages the transition from the beta brain waves of mental arousal to the alpha brain waves of relaxation.

  • Combined with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, PureBalance Serotonin gives you the support you need to cheer up and slim down. 5-HTP has been shown to help sleeplessness, depression, anxiety and fibromyalgia.

5-HTP (L-5 Hydroxytryptophan)

5-HTP is naturally occurring amino acid and the raw material the body uses to make serotonin — a brain chemical necessary for positive mood, healthy sleep, and appetite. Research has shown that when levels of 5-HTP rise, so do levels of serotonin. Several double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials have found 5-HTP can help support a positive mood, reduce appetite, and enhance weight loss.*


Relora is a proprietary blend of standardized extracts of magnolia and phellodendron bark. It contains the calming compounds berberine and honokiol and may alleviate symptoms of occasional stress and stress-related overeating by reducing levels of the stress hormone coritsol.* Cortisol causes weight gain by increasing both appetite and fat formation, so a reduction in this hormone helps support weight loss efforts in two ways.

Rhodiola root extract

Rhodiola rosea (also called golden root) is a plant that grows in cold regions across the world. Rhodiola is an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body adapt to various stressors. It supports a positive mood by increasing levels of serotonin and other neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine and dopamine, helping them cross the blood-brain barrier, and decreasing MAO (monoamine oxidase), which degrades these chemicals.*

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)

Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because the body can synthesize it when sunlight exposure is adequate. However, researchers have discovered that vitamin D insufficiency is surprisingly common, affecting as much as 70 percent of the population. Vitamin D is a great multi-tasker: it strengthens bone by aiding calcium absorption, modulates immune function, protects prostate cells, and boosts brain chemicals needed for positive mood.* Vitamin D3 is better absorbed than vitamin D2.*

Vitamin D

Vitamin D has been produced by life forms for over 750 million years. In humans, vitamin D is vitally important for the development, growth, and maintenance of a healthy body, beginning in the womb and continuing throughout life. Vitamin D's metabolic product, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (calcitriol), is actually a type of natural  hormone that is the key which unlocks binding sites on the human genome, our DNA. The human genome contains more than 2,700 binding sites for calcitriol; those binding sites are near genes involved in virtually every known major disease of humans.
