- Micronutrients – essential nutrients that are required for the synthesis of serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters.
- Folate – vital for supporting proper mood regulation.
- Vitamin B12 – important for maintaining neurotransmitter synthesis.
- Magnesium – a mineral that calms the nervous system by binding to glutamate receptors, which reduces excitatory neurotransmitter activity.
- Zinc – in combination with Mg, it helps reduce glutamate to non-toxic levels, providing significant neuroprotection.
- Inositol – A B vitamin that is an important component of cell membrane signaling. As part of the cellular signaling system of the CNS, inositol is crucial for the release of neurotransmitters from within the nerve cells.
- Taurine – Supports inhibitory neurotransmission by activating glycine receptors in the brain.
- L-Theanine – An amino acid found abundantly in green tea; It has been shown to quickly improve stress perception and resilience.
- GABA – One of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. GABA provides a calming effect and is a primary component of the body’s stress fighting mechanisms; It is produced naturally by the friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus hilgardii.
- 5-HTP – an amino acid intermediate that is directly converted into the mood-regulating neurotransmitter serotonin; Produced naturally from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplifolia.
