NeurotransmittersVastly complex. the human nervous system coordinates innumerable processes via a host of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are used for everything from signaling the heart and lungs to function to enabling the body to sleep so regeneration and repair can occur. Emotions, affect, mood, appetite, and even energy levels are also regulated by neurotransmitters. We are now offering three nutritional supplements that help target specific areas of brain and nervous system function.
Dopamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter that is important for regulating physical movement, emotion, and pleasure and motivation centers of the brain. It also plays a neurocognitive role, particularly with memory, problem solving, motivation, learning, and the ability to focus. Additionally, dopamine acts on the sympathetic nervous system, thus it impacts physiological functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and libido. LDopa(aka levodopa; L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine) is a naturally occurring dopamine precursor that is derived from the Mucuna pruriens plant.
Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) is a primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. It is one of the "feel good" neurotransmitters (Serotonin, Dopamine, GABA, Opioids and Norepinehprine) and it is commonly referred to as the anti-anxiety neurotransmitter.
Neuperzine is a compound that is utilized in neurology for memory support. NeuPerzine is a natural sesquiterpene alkaoid compound has been shown to enhance memory in students, while pharmaceutical derivatives of this natural compound are currently under development for the treatment of Alzheimer's.
