Amino Acids for Mental Health

Communication within the brain & between the brain & the rest of the nervous system occurs through chemical “languages” called neurotransmitters. The central nervous system is almost completely regulated by amino acids & peptides:

Serotonin, the happy hormone
Dopamine, your reward hormone
GABA, the calming neurotransmitter
Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter, a chemical that carries messages from your brain to your body through nerve cells. It’s an excitatory neurotransmitter. This means it “excites” the nerve cell and causes it to “fire off the message.” It plays an important role in brain nerve cells, in such processes as memory, thinking and learning.

Identify the balance of neurotransmitters in you, by downloading and completing the braverman amino acid test.
