An innovative, commonsense approach to anxiety, depression and panic attacks
The holidays can be “the most wonderful time of the year”, but they can also be very stressful. Even people without diagnosed depression or anxiety begin to feel overwhelmed by responsibilities and time constraints.
For many, depression, anxiety and feeling “out of balance” are not just holiday discomforts, but often become even worse during the holiday season. Anti-depressant medications can help, but they rarely eliminate all the symptoms and up to two-thirds of people do not experience any relief.
Many people try very hard to achieve a sense of emotional and physical balance, but, much like pushing a boulder up a mountain, they will never be able to achieve that goal if a chemical imbalance is working against them.
We can relate…
We can speak to these feelings, because we have been there too. Anyone who has not had anxiety or suffered a panic attack just cannot understand, no matter how hard they try. The feelings of fear, heart palpitations, sweating, and general helplessness are crushing.
Many times physicians prescribe anti-depressant medications, commonly known as “Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors”(SSRIs), to control these issues. SSRI’s (ie: Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil) are designed to block the re-absorption (reuptake) of serotonin by certain nerve cells in the brain. Theoretically, this leaves more serotonin available in the brain to help maintain a sense of calm and decreased anxiety or depression.
However, if you are one of many people who have low serotonin levels to begin with, these medications either will not work well, or not at all. Therefore, supplements aimed at increasing your natural serotonin levels are likely to be an effective treatment option, even one which could be used concomitantly with an SSRI. Additionally, a combination approach may even allow a decrease in the SSRI dosage, and consequently, side effects.
DID YOU KNOW?
While most of us know that serotonin is the “feel good” neurotransmitter (brain chemical) which helps us feel calmer, what is less commonly known is that low serotonin levels may increase a person’s risk of heart disease and have been linked to overeating, weight gain, mental fatigue, migraines, low physical endurance, and poor sleep.
Recent research suggests that the natural compound 5-HTP, derived from the herb Griffonia Simplicifolia, is part of the metabolic pathway that leads to serotonin production and can be just as effective as anti-depressant drugs.
ORAL 5-HTP supplements have Serious Drawbacks
Unfortunately when 5-HTP is taken as an oral supplement there are serious problems which render it largely ineffective.
- ORAL 5-HTP causes significant side effects, including nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.
- Most oral 5-HTP is prematurely converted in the bloodstream to a form of serotonin that cannot cross into the brain where it is needed.
- Much of the ingested 5-HTP is metabolized to serotonin and absorbed in peripheral tissues and adequate amounts do not reach the brain until the peripheral sites are saturated.
- Nutrient deficiencies will adversely affect the increase of serotonin in your brain.
Luckily, there is a solution!
Zetpil™’s Seratone deep-penetrating cream and suppositories are formulated to deliver therapeutic dosages of L-5-HTP from Griffonia Seeds, along with the nutrient cofactors required for optimal metabolic effects. The benefits of the Zetpil™ Seratone products include:
- Pure, pharmaceutical grade 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), which is able to cross the blood brain barrier;
- The necessary nutrient co-factors needed to both facilitate the absorption and then the conversion of the herbal source of 5-HTP into serotonin in the brain
- No side effects normally associated with oral 5-HTP supplementation; and
- Direct delivery into the bloodstream and bypasses premature conversion in peripheral tissue.
Zetpil™’s Seratone products are the relief you have been looking for. You can get immediate benefits during stressful times, help stave off those nasty panic attacks, control food urges (especially helpful during the holiday season!), and improve your sleep.
Once you try Zetpil™ Seratone you will wonder how you ever lived without it! These natural, yet nanotechnology-based products are the light at the end of your darkness.
NOTE: Zetpil™ Seratone suppositories are intended to be taken over an extended period of time to help reduce symptoms and may even replace current pharmaceutical treatments. Zetpil™ Seratone deep-penetrating cream can offer you fast relief for acute attacks, often within 15-20 minutes.
