Lower serotonin may help people break the cycle of unfair treatment. Many signs of depression can be caused by low serotonin. Many anti-depressants and some supplements like 5-HTP or St Johns Wort and bump up serotonin. A recient study shows lower serotonin can help people break the cycle of being treated unfairly. If someone takes something from the outside that increases serotonin without dealing with the situation leading to the cause of depression the cycle may continue.

People only change when they are uncomfortable with their situation. If a drug, food or supplement subsitutes for real change, expect no change at all. Only you can be the change. Don’t just medicate the pain away. Your life won’t change for the good if you just close your eyes and hope. Action is change, take the right actions and you will continue to drive toward life of your dreams.

PhD student Molly Crockett, a Gates Scholar at the University of Cambridge Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, said: “Our results suggest that serotonin plays a critical role in social decision-making by normally keeping aggressive social responses in check. Changes in diet and stress cause our serotonin levels to fluctuate naturally, so it’s important to understand how this might affect our everyday decision-making"
