Neurotransmitter Balance by Douglas Laboratories is a dietary blend of ingredients to support mood and feelings of emotional wellness by optimizing neurotransmitters. Important complementary nutrients for multiple neurotransmitters are included in this formula to help with mood stabilization.
The unique ingredient Venetron®, a Rafuma leaf extract, is a safe botanical alternative to St. John’s Wort. Venetron’s bioactive properties have been shown in clinical studies to support serotonin and work through the GABA system to support a sense of calmness, well- being, and promote restful sleep.
This formula can be taken in conjunction with Mood Systems Balance, formulated by Dr. Peter Bongiorno, for additional mood support.
Proper neurotransmitter balance allows the brain to keep a consistent mood that adjusts appropriately to the environment. Research suggests that using individual neurotransmitter precursors may cause imbalances of other neurotransmitter precursors. Therefore, supporting multiple neurotransmitters together can lead to optimal results.
S-Adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) is a naturally occurring molecule derived from the amino acid methionine. SAMe supports methylation reactions shown to form monoamine neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine. Neurotransmitter Balance uses a stable form of SAMe in an acid-resistant capsule for enhanced stability through stomach acid.
This product is indicated for individuals that benefit from neurotransmitter and mood support.
