Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Increases Endorphin Levels

30 September 2022

When prescribed in the low dose form, LDN can help with a multitude of different ailments and issues such as anxiety, depression, inflammation, cancers, chronic pain, immune system dysfunction, and other mental health-related issues, as well.  

Low dose naltrexone only temporarily blocks our body’s opioid receptors, which actually causes an increase in the production of our body’s endorphins, increasing the endorphin levels by up to 3x. The increase in endorphin levels helps to not only reduce inflammation but also to relieve pain and improve our overall health and well-being. The increase in endorphins also helps with our body’s immunity and regulates cell growth. A few of the many reasons patients are quickly turning to LDN:

  • Encourages weight loss
  • Reduces brain fog and overall fatigue
  • Lowers markers of inflammation
