Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers in our brain and peripheral nervous system. They can affect emotions, mood, sleep, concentration, and thought processes. There are many types of neurotransmitters responsible for different moods. Among them, these are the four main types of emotional generators in your brain.
|Serotonin||A high level of serotonin can make you feel positive, confident, flexible, and easygoing. When the serotonin level in the body is low, it triggers sleeplessness and other negative feelings such as depression, obsessive nature, feeling worried, and irritable.|
|Catecholamines||A normal level of catecholamines will make you feel energized, upbeat, and alert. A low level of catecholamines can leave you in a flat, lethargic mood.|
|GABA||This is known as “nature’s valium”. If you have high GABA levels, you’ll feel relaxed and stress-free. If the GABA level is depleting, you’ll start feeling stressed and overwhelmed.|
|Endorphins||High endorphins will give you a cozy feeling of comfort, pleasure, and euphoria. Low endorphin makes you overly sensitive to pain and emotions. If you are low on endorphins, you may catch yourself crying while watching movies.|
Several factors such as stress, poor diet, toxins, genetic predisposition, drugs (both prescribed and recreational), alcohol, and caffeine use may affect your neurotransmitter stock. One of the best ways to build your neurotransmitter level back up is to take the neurotransmitter support therapy. During this therapy, we provide a high dose of amino acids and vitamins to your bloodstream.
So, why amino acids? Amino acids are an important substance for your body because all neurotransmitters are made of amino acids. While some people have adequate levels of amino acids in their body, some will experience imbalances. When there is an imbalance of amino acids, it affects the production of neurotransmitters. So, if certain amino acids are missing, it directly affects your mood and emotions.
The neurotransmitter support therapy provides several amino acids directly to your blood. So, it is the fastest and most effective way to replenish the amounts of amino acids in your body. If your body already has an excess of certain amino acids, it will not be used by the body.
Do you have anxiety, depression, an addiction, or drug/ alcohol withdrawal symptoms? With this neurotransmitter support therapy, you’ll start feeling better again.
