Emotional Wellness provides 5-hydroxytryptophan and L-tyrosine key precursors for the synthesis of several neurotransmitters responsible for a healthy emotional outlook including serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine.
Neurotransmitters are involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity in addition to sleep/wake cycles.
- Research suggests that l-tyrosine may also support cognitive function and memory under stressful conditions. A healthy level of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA is also associated with a positive mood.
- Research suggests that both GABA and l-theanine enhance alpha wave production in the brain, promoting relaxation.
- Complementary support for relaxation is provided by passionflower, while Rhodiola rosea supports cognitive and mental function under stressful conditions. Vitamin B6 is a cofactor that plays an important role in supporting positive emotional health.
