Improve blood circulation and remove pressure from specific area of the body

Naturally produced in the body that serve a primary function as an agent blocking the perception of pain and, additionally, present in cases of pleasure.

is involved in: appetite, sleep, memory, learning, temperature, mood (serotonin is also known as a happiness hormone because it contributes to feelings of well-being), behavior, muscle contraction, depression, cardiovascular function, endocrine regulation, regulating aging, bone metabolism, wound healing (serotonin is a growth factor for some types of cells). Serotonin also plays a key role in the regulating sleep.

Balance homeostasis

Many systems work together to keep the body balanced, with the nervous and endocrine systems taking the lead. If the body becomes too hot, for example, part of the brain registers this and activates the sweat glands to help lower the temperature; when it’s too cold, the muscles are activated, shivering to help generate heat. If blood pressure falls, a specific neurotransmitter is released; this causes the blood vessels to constrict and increases the heart rate. This, in turn, causes blood pressure to rise. Other conditions in the body, like blood sugar levels and pH balance, are also monitored and adjusted when they fall outside the ideal range.
