Natural Alternative to Prozac, Paxil, Wellbutrin and Zyban
by Shane Ellison

Plenty of professionals are coming forward to announce the dangers of drugs such as Prozac, Paxil, Wellbutrin and Zyban. Unfortunately, they are not offering solutions to these dangers. To remedy this, we are proud to introduce a very powerful and safe alternative. First though, let's take a closer look at these medications.

Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptophan AKA 5-HTP) is a neurotransmitter within the human brain and is known to control mood, emotion, sleep and appetite. Consequently, it is implicated to modulate numerous behavioral and physiological activities such as aggressiveness, ADHD symptoms, depression, and the craving of sweets. Thus, serotonin is an excellent drug target.

Synthetic drugs such as Prozac (fluoxetine), Paxil (paroxitine) and Wellbutrin (Bupropion AKA Zyban) have been developed as specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's) to treat the aforementioned behavioral and physiological activities.

For instance, Prozac (fluoxetine), Paxil (paroxitine) and Wellbutrin are often prescribed to treat depression by elongating the activity of serotonin in the brain. Further, Wellbutrin has recently been prescribed in an attempt to curb appetite due to its purported activity as an SSRI.

Unfortunately, the British Medical Journal reports that these SSRI's increase gastrointestinal and intracranial bleeding as well as suicidal tendencies and death rates. The Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology also reports an increase in breast cancer among users Prozac and Paxil!

Needless to say, these drugs are not the answer to maximizing serotonin levels in an attempt to modulate various behavioral and physiological activities. Fortunately, there is a very safe and effective natural alternative for greatly maximizing serotonin levels.

Serotonin is derived from L-tryptophan. Recent studies suggest that whey supplementation naturally enhances brain serotonin levels by increasing L-tryptophan levels by 46-48%! This dietary effect is a result of the whey protein alpha-lactalbumin containing large amounts of L-tryptophan.

Researchers found that whey supplemented individuals (45g/day for 6 weeks) had significant increases in cognitive performance as seen by enhanced learning and memory. Furthermore, most dedicated users of whey will testify to enhanced focus and clarity.

Of course, further studies need to be done to further elucidate the mechanism by which users are gaining better use of their brains outside of the sole action of increased serotonin levels. Nonetheless, these preliminary studies do support claims that whey can be used to SUCCESSFULLY treat various behavioral and physiological abnormalities such as ADHD, depression, and appetite.

Intuitively, an increase in cognitive performance has many implications for both the athlete and health conscious individual. When our brains are operating clearly our abilities are unmatched and possibilities for healthier living are limitless.

Enhanced cognitive performance allows for various organs and our immune system to operate efficiently, which ultimately prevents us from having to utilize not only the aforementioned toxic medications but also many other drugs that are your doctor has ready to treat (not cure) the next ache, pain or cognitive abnormality.
