User: serotonin

Weegy: Serotonin (pronounced /?s?r?'to?n?n/) or 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is a monoamine neurotransmitter, biochemically derived from tryptophan, that is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, platelets, [ and central nervous system (CNS) of humans and animals. It is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being. Approximately 80 percent of the human body's total serotonin is located in the enterochromaffin cells in the gut, where it is used to regulate intestinal movements. The remainder is synthesized in serotonergic neurons in the CNS where it has various functions, including the regulation of mood, appetite, sleep, muscle contraction, and some cognitive functions including memory and learning. Modulation of serotonin at synapses is thought to be a major action of several classes of pharmacological antidepressants. ]

Foods rich in serotonin precursors such as tryptophan, found in turkey, chicken, nuts, and seeds, can contribute to the production of serotonin in the body.
