The solar and serotonin systems are celebrated this Solstice Day 2014 in a bit of PubMed research. Author and publisher Bryan W. Brickner highlights established and new science supporting the fact that ones serotonin system is as important to life (and health) as the sun.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 21, 2014

Tales of reducing hot flashes and insomnia? opened political scientist Bryan W. Brickner. No, not todays solstice ~ serotonin is the answer.

Serotonin (5-HT, 5-hydroxytryptamine) is a ubiquitous biochemical found in animals and plants. Mammals use it as a neurotransmitter in the central and peripheral nervous systems and also as a local hormone in other systems ~ such as the digestive, heart and immune.

Like the solar system, noted Brickner, an Ew Publishing publisher, the serotonin system modulates our life.

In Solstice Serotonin (5HTP) Science Stories: New on the Bryan William Brickner Blog, the healthy role of the serotonin precursor 5-HTP is highlighted. The post cites established and new research from the National Institutes of Health (PubMed) to tell four (short) science stories. Using PubMed quotes, Brickner finds: a role for therapeutic 5-HTP, serotonin reducing hot flashes and breast cancer, 5-HTP helping irritable bowel syndrome, and how serotonin-mediates morphines efficacy.

Serotonin modulates both the central and peripheral nervous systems, Brickner added, and as a hormone, serotonin is vital to such things as our gut, heart and immune cells.

Serotonin also regulates sleep, closed Brickner just like the sun does.

Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several books, to include: The Promise Keepers (1999), the novella thereafter (2013), and The Book of the Is (2013). The Bryan William Brickner Blog is a collection of published works and press coverage and an ongoing resource for the political science of constitutions and the biological science of receptors.
