Frequently Asked Questions
How can Serotune products help me?
Serotune products can help you feel better mentally, by alleviating mild emotional depression and anxiety, reducing stress, encourage clearer thinking, and more. We use natural ingredients that naturally boost the production of four key brain neurotransmitters (Serotonin, Dopamine, Norepinephrine and GABA.)
Will Serotune products work for me?
Serotune is very effective at addressing symptoms caused by deficiencies of these neurotransmitters. Of course, brain chemistry can vary widely from individual to individual. This is why we extend our industry-leading guarantee. You have nothing to lose by trying Serotune products.
I came here for just plain-old “Serotune” for depression. Where is it?
You are probably referring to our Amino Balance Formula. In the beginning, that was our flagship product, and some people still refer to it as “Serotune”. But Serotune is really an “umbrella” brand name, with three different formulas.
What different Serotune formulas are there?
Our original product is our Serotune Amino Balance, which is for general mild depression and anxiety. We have since added two more formulas: Serotune Natural Probiotics, which targets digestive issues and related depression, and Serotune Natural Sleep Aid, which addresses depression and anxiety that stems from a lack of good, healthy sleep.
How do I know which Serotune formula is right for me?
If you feel “unwell” in a digestive sense, then Probiotics formula might be the right one. If you are lacking good, restful sleep, then our sleep formula might be right. If you have general anxiety and mild depression, then the Amino Balance formula is the one for you.
Is it ok if I tried all of the different formulas?
Yes, they are all extremely safe, and all-natural. You may find they all work for you, but perhaps one just fits you better.
How long does it take before I start to feel better?
Some people begin to feel a difference 4-5 hours after taking our supplements; others will start to see an improvement in a few days. Typical users see additional improvement over 1-2 weeks.
Is Serotune a prescription medication?
No. Serotune formulas are natural supplements containing a concentrated blends of amino acids, GABA, probiotics, and similar.
How often should I take Serotune Amino Balance?
One capsule, 2-3 times daily. We suggest you start with twice daily (once in the morning, once in the late afternoon). You may take it with meals, with a light snack, or with just a beverage.
How long should I take Serotune Amino Balance?
The short answer is until you no longer need it. For some people this means taking it through the holidays to deal with stress, for others it may be to help them get through sleepless months after their child is born.
Is Serotune homeopathic?
No. We have chosen not to offer a homeopathic product because there are no scientific studies that indicate homeopathy can help with depression, sleep, or digestive help.
Are Serotune products "FDA Approved?"
Serotune's manufacturing facility is FDA approved. While the FDA does approve manufacturing facilities, supplements cannot themselves be FDA approved. Please visit the FDA for more information about FDA approval of dietary supplements.
Are Serotune products habit forming?
No. None of our formulas are habit forming.
Can I take Serotune products for just a day or two?
Yes. Serotune products are is a great way to boost your wellness and mood short-term. Unlike many alternatives, they are effective relatively quickly.
What side effects do Serotune products have?
Side effects are rare, but can include headaches, nausea, insomnia, and fatigue. If you experience any of these side effects we recommend lowering your intake to one capsule per day or discontinuing use entirely.
Does Serotune have any sexual side effects?
No. Users of Serotune typically see no reduction in their libido. On the plus side, a clear head may make sex better....
What medications should I avoid when taking Serotune?
Please read our contraindications page.
I have a medical condition, is Serotune safe for me?
Please read our contraindications page.
Is Serotune safe to take during pregnancy?
We recommend you talk to your doctor before taking any supplement during pregnancy, Serotune included.
Does Serotune cause weight gain?
No. In fact, some nutritionists recommend serotonin boosting supplements to reduce cravings for carbohydrates as part of a diet plan.
I am currently prescribed an SSRI in response to clinically diagnosed depression. Is Serotune Amino Balance an alternative?
If your depression is significant enough to make SSRI's a viable option, you should not undertake a treatment plan without the guidance of your health professional. Depression is a highly complicated condition and patients respond in widely varied ways to treatments. Undergoing treatment without the advice from a mental health professional could result in dangerous mood swings. Your health is very important (more important than us making a sale), so please work closely with a doctor when treating depression.
I think I'm depressed (as in clinical depression). Should I take Serotune?
Your doctor should answer this. Serotune is designed to address a variety of conditions such as depressed moods, poor concentration, irregular sleep cycles, and low motivation caused by a lack of serotonin and dopamine in the central nervous system. If you believe you are suffering from symptoms severe enough to be clinical depression, we suggest you read more on depression and see a doctor. We encourage you to take this Mayo Clinic self-assessment if you are unsure.
Do you realize you may have lost a sale answering the last two questions?
Yes, we know. And that’s ok. Like we mentioned, someone’s overall health is more important than us making a sale. Chronic, clinical depression is a serious condition that should be treated first and foremost by a doctor. If the doctor thinks Serotune is worth a try (and they very well might – it’s a GREAT product line), then we’re all for it. In the end, we advocate Serotune for occasional mood depression (often caused by outside circumstances), which is different from clinical, diagnosed depression.
