On January 5th, 2006, researchers announced that they had learned that protein p11 plays a key role in depression.

Protein p11 appears to regulate signaling of the brain chemical serotonin. In many studies completed before this, serotonin had been linked with depression and also anxiety disorders, but this was the first time anyone knew how.

The funny thing is that serotonin is what nearly every antidepressant, including Prozac, is made to regulate.

The Difference Between Protein p11 and Prozac

Prozac uses compounds called SSRIs, which increase the levels of serotonin in your body. These compounds interact with 14 different serotonin receptors. Prozac stimulates some of the receptors that cause negative side effects. P11 does not interact with these receptors.

What Happens if Prozac Doesn’t Work?

People react differently to drugs. If you do not experience any positive effects from antidepressants, Paxil could be an option for you. It is an antidepressant that targets 5-HT receptors, and causes very few side effects.

Entrepreneur Alert!

Since p11 is a natural (organic) chemical, it can not be patented! Using p11 in future antidepressants will soon be huge.

The funds to get such a business started are unknown, but you could do some research and some deep pocket investing to be the first to jump on this market.
