Binaural Beats for Serotonin Release Music
Relax with Binaural Beats
Binaural beats and calm music give you a release of serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. In order to better understand what we’re listening to, let’s take a closer look at the keywords in this post and define them so that we know more about healing music and why it works.
Serotonin is an important chemical and neurotransmitter (a messenger between brain cells). It helps us keep ourselves on an even keel with mood, social interaction, appetite, sleep, memory, and overall physical health.
Dopamine is another important compound present in the body as a neurotransmitter. Low dopamine levels can lead to lack of motivation, fatigue, addictive behavior, mood swings, and memory loss.
Endorphins is a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system. They are peptides that activate the body’s opiate receptors, causing an analgesic effect.
Binaural beats are like optical illusions for sounds. When your left ear hears a slightly different tone from your right ear, you perceive a beat not present in the music you listen to. These binaural beats (from Latin “with both ears”) have been peddled as “digital drugs”, producing all sorts of effects from improving sleep to enhancing your memory.
