Fairbanks is a city in Alaska, USA with a population of about 30,000. It is located at a high latitude and is the closest city in North America to the Arctic Circle. The winter there is cold and long, the summer is cool and short, and there is a phenomenon of eternal and permanent night. Fairbanks is famous of aurora. The people over there can see the northern lights more than 200 days in a year. Therefore, the city attracts visitors from all over the world to view the northern lights.

The Northern Lights and 5 HTP Powder

But as the old saying goes, there are two sides to every coin. In a place so close to the Arctic Circle, the probability of local residents suffering from SAD is higher in other places. SAD is a depression that is highly correlated with a particular season (especially during the winter). This type of depression is related to the length of the day, or the degree of ambient light. The study found that the higher the latitude, the higher the likelihood of SAD.

For the patients, they have at least three ways to deal with this problem.

1. Sunshine box therapy. The Sunshine Box simulates outdoor natural light and may cause a chemical shift in the depressed brain.

2. Medication. 5 HTP powder can make you body produce more serotonin. Serotonin is a happy-inducing hormone which will make you feel good.

3. Cognitive behavioral therapy. For example, when you have the idea of 'I hate winter' in your mind, you can try to change this idea to 'I prefer summer compared to winter'.
