What are you favorite nootropic stacks / supplements for boosting serotonin?

I use 5 HTP personally. Works great. Also there are many studies that Modafinil increases serotonine levels.

appearantly i have too much dopamine compared to serotonin .. so i'm trying to balance it out
best way to increase serotonin long term is to have plenty of 5htp and do exercise every day. ssri's work in the short term for this but you dont wanna do that
to get your brain to actually release more serotonin you could look at getting one of those lights that they use to treat seasonal effective disorder. also, going to sleep and waking up at exactly the same time every day, and eating your meals at the same time every day can help greatly. avoiding caffeine can also work wonders because it can also deplete your neurotransmitters.
Careful with 5htp. It can lead to serotonin syndrome. I would focus more on upregulating receptors. Herbs like bacopa (also increases acetylcholine) and rhodiola do so in the hippocampus.
Not nootropics specifically, but look into 5HTP or L-Tryptophan.
It could be a lack of dopamine. I tried effexor for what I thought was depression and it had no effect. One dose of dopa mucuna perked me right up. Dopamine is also important for mental work.
If you uprate Serotonin the brain will downgrade Dopamine.
& if you uprate Dopamine then the brain will downgrade Serotonin.
Dopamine is much more important.
But the Serotonin, Melatonin, DMT System is important.
St Johns Wort does Reuptake inhibition for Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine, & GABA. That is a balanced Nootropic.
try seratonin brain food by natural stacks. Its formulated to provide all the things you need to make serotonin. Great product.
if your'e in the eu you can get them from Enhanced Nation (its my site but promise I've not reccomended it for that reason. there's also a dutch site helfi.nl he sells Natural Stacks
I would also reccomend taking some adaptogens Dragon Herbs do some great furmulas. You can take ashwagandha or Rodiola both great. Gingseng is good for men - these will help bring you body into balance. Finally I would check your diet, serotonin is genarated in the gut so if follows that if you feel you are not producing enough your diet may be to blame. Gluten makes for a foggy brain
Serotonin boosting nootropics: bifido infantis, 5htp, tryptophan, st johns wort, cutting out carbs from diet (especiallly sugar and grains) - many of these issues most likely stem from the insomnia. Although it may not be the source, once you fix that, much or all of this should resolve.
Forget tryptophan and 5htp. If you want to increase serotonin receptor density, go for regular Ayahuasca treatments. I also recommend microdosing iboga, its a very powerful tonic, adaptogen and antidepressant
I'm talking like HIF-1a modulation, PGC-1a for mitochondrial biogenesis, getting uncoupling proteins to work well, increases in delta G ATP hydrolysis, etc. Dr. Peter Attia noticed initial detriments to performance, then his endurance capacity sky-rocketed, but in terms of maximal output, he suffered. But after about 2yrs (maybe a bit less) his power started returning to pre-ketosis baseline. Dr. Attia, Dr. D'Agostino, Richard Veech, George Cahill, Thomas Seyfried and reddit are good resources for all of this. Ketone Salts (KetoForce), caprylic acid, mct oil, coconut oil/milk, BCAAs/leucine/lysine, oxaloacetate, and some other things can enhanc ketosis and the transition.
Tryptophan if you want to cure a deficiency. 5HTP if you want to go past. Personally I use Bacopa, but you have to be careful not to cause imbalances in the brain.
Tryptophan. And if you have serious problems, consult it with your doctor. SSRIs may do the work but they are pretty dangerous if you won't use them carefully. You may get serotonin syndrome
Mr Happy's Stack with Uridine, DHA, Alpha GPC still a thing? Its just like eating eggs and fish almost.
