Serotonin (also known as the feel good chemical) is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that controls the speed of communication in the brain. Research suggests that serotonin has been found to directly influence our emotions, our moods and be responsible for promoting general feelings of well-being.

Our modern faced paced lifestyle can lead to high levels of stress, and anxiety which can decrease serotonin levels to below what's considered normal and healthy. When serotonin becomes deficient you may experience symptoms such as feelings of fatigue, desire for social isolation, low self-esteem, chronic anxiety, low mood and depression.

Our western based diets are not what they used to be. We eat a lot of processed foods that have been stripped of their nutrients. Even if you eat healthy, it is very unlikely that you could "right the wrongs" of a nutritional imbalance without the help of supplementing your diet. Researchers suggest that a diet lacking in good nutrition could also result in neurotransmitter deficiencies, affecting optimal brain health.

By naturally supporting normal levels of serotonin in the brain, it could be possible to correct your body's over usage or under-production of serotonin, and return it back to normal healthy levels. As a result supporting optimal levels of serotonin could boost your mood and leave you feeling calmer and more relaxed, even under the stresses of everyday modern life.

Research suggests that one of the alkaloids contained in Kanna, the active natural ingredient in Uplift™ may act as a natural selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI).

Research suggests that the alkaloid Mesembrine slows down the re-uptake process, making it more probable there will be more serotonin in the relevant receptors, greatly increasing the possibility that there will be sufficient levels to set up the signal transfer in all neighbouring neurons.

Mesembrine may allow the brain to function with reduced levels of serotonin, allowing time for natural levels to build up, whereupon the Mesembrine dosage can be reduced or eliminated.
