Depression and Amino Acid Deficiency

To understand how amino acid deficiency exacerbates depression, it is important to understand how the brain affects our emotional and mental health.  The primary neurotransmitters that maintain healthy brain functions are serotonin, GABA, dopamine and norepinephrine.  Kept in balance, these neurotransmitters aid mood, sleep and anxiety.

Serotonin and GABA have a calming and inhibitory effect on the brain and on your mood, whereas dopamine and norepinephrine have a stimulating and excitatory effect on the brain and on your mood.  The balance of these four neurotransmitters is critical to experiencing life with passion, energy, focus, and zest.  One way to assist that important balance is with Total Amino Solution.
