Brain Energy, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies essential nutrients and precursor amino acids carefully formulated to provide nutritional support for increased energy and the neurotransmitter dopamine.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that affects brain processes that control movement and emotional response like mood and motivation, and is the source of brain’s power and energy. It is an excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitter, depending on the dopamine receptor it binds to. Stress, medications, poor diet, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar may contribute to low dopamine levels in the brain.
Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that must be obtained through the diet. Found primarily in high protein sources such as meat and eggs, it plays an important role in regulating the nervous system. DL- Phenylalanine can be used to metabolize two distinct chemicals. D and L forms can be converted to phenylethylamine, regulating effects in mood and feelings of well-being.
Brain Energy may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to nutritionally support dopamine.
