Another reviewer states it correctly here, this is not an overnight cure. However there are amino acids that even I felt better within one hour of taking them even while still a complete mess.Read more ›
Here in a nutshell is the supplemental strategy:
There are four major neurotransmitters:
When we have deficiencies in any of these neurotransmitters, we start having emotional and mental problems.
Serotonin is the number one neurotransmitter deficiency. (That’s why it’s listed first.) It’s the feel-good chemical that makes us happy, hopeful, self-confident, and outgoing. It stops the worry and turns on enthusiasm.
Oh, and guess what is the number one enemy of serotonin? Caffeine. That’s right, caffeine depletes serotonin. So you might want to rethink that latte or cup of green tea.
Serotonin converts to melatonin as the sun goes down, so if you’re low in serotonin, you won’t be able to create enough melatonin — which means you won’t sleep well. If you suffer from insomnia, serotonin may help you.
Catecholamines (the number two most common deficiency) are the brain chemicals that make us feel energized and give us the ability to concentrate. It’s caused by a deficiency in catecholamines. Need that cup of coffee to get going? You’re most likely low in catecholamines. And if you’re self-medicating with coffee or chocolate, you’re doing damage to your serotonin levels.
