Who should take the test?
Do you suffer from lethargy or insomnia? Do you feel exhausted, burnt out and do not recognize yourself? A serotonin deficiency (as well as a serotonin surplus) can have strong effects on our physical and especially mental condition. Serotonin is known as the “happy hormone” because its best-known role is to control mood. Its release has a calming effect and promotes serenity. It is formed by the body from the amino acid tryptophan. However, the body cannot produce this amino acid itself, but must absorb it through food. An adapted diet can therefore help to support the production of this important hormone.
With the serotonin test, we determine your serotonin level using a simple urine sample.
How does it work?
You take the samples at home, send them back to us and we send you your result with information about the measured parameters. You will find out whether your values are within the normal range or whether there is a serotonin deficiency or excess.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
Your report will contain detailed information about your serotonin level and whether it is normal, too high, or too low (compared to the respective reference range for your age group). You can then discuss these results with your doctor who can advise you on how to proceed and on the various therapy options.
Although we do not offer medical advice ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We and our partner laboratories (who may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.
