Dietary Supplement • Inhibitory Neurotransmitter Precursor
Seratran is a dietary supplement uniquely formulated with the neurotrans- mitter precursor 5-HTP and vitamin and mineral cofactors. This supplement was designed to support:
• Normal serotonin production
• Normal mood balance
• Normal gastrointestinal function
Over 90% of serotonin is produced by enterochromaffin cells in the gastro- intestinal tract while the remainder of serotonin is produced in the brain. These two sites of serotonin production remain distinct as serotonin cannot cross the blood brain barrier. Serotonin produced in the brain acts as a neurotransmitter affecting mood, cognition, circadian rhythm, neuroendo- crine function, cravings, and appetite. The serotonin produced in the gut acts as a hormone affecting GI function, bone formation, immune function, and metabolism. 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to serotonin; it is absorbed by the gut and can cross the blood brain barrier. 5-HTP is then converted by the brain and the enterochromaffin cells in the GI tract producing serotonin.
Seratran is a vital part of clinical strategies to support normal serotonin production.

Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) – Acts as a cofactor for neurotransmitter pro- duction and supports neuronal health.
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5’-Phosphate and Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) – Acts as a cofactor in the synthesis of neurotransmitters including serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, GABA, and melatonin.
Folate (as Folic Acid) – Acts as a cofactor for biosynthesis of neurotransmit- ters, amino acid conversion such as the methylation of methionine, and formation of DNA and RNA.
Calcium (as Di-Calcium Malate) – Is vital to cell signaling, neurotransmitter release, nerve function, and development.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) – Biological precursor to serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine).
