Vital Mind has been formulated to provide the necessary precursors to the major neurotransmitters of the nervous system: dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, melatonin, and acetylcholine.
By taking Vital Mind, you are supplying your system with these critical precursors in appropriate ratios to increase alertness, focus, motivation, stress management & memory, all while working to create a balanced mood throughout the day.
While an excess or deficiency of one neurotransmitter in our nervous system can cause an imbalance and lead to suboptimal behaviour, energy, and general function, a balanced intake can help to prevent this from occurring.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is used to produce noradrenaline and dopamine. L-Tyrosine shares a brain transporter with other similar amino acids, including tryptophan, the precursor to 5-HTP & serotonin. It appears to reduce stress during exposure to acute stressors, and may help to prevent stress-induced memory and attention deficits.
5-HTP is a compound that gets converted into serotonin in the brain. 5-HTP has been used with success to restore serotonin levels in those with low levels, due to depression or high levels of inflammation in the body.
Alpha-GPC is a cholinergic compound that is used for its cognitive-promoting properties, and to enhance power output in athletes. It appears to also support cellular membranes and may aid in preventing cognitive decline in the elderly. It has been shown to boost focus, memory, and learning in young healthy adults.
SAMe is a modified form of the amino acid methionine. SAMe has been found to reduce amyloid production, improve spatial memory, and inhibit the upregulation of B-vitamin deficiency-induced gene expression. It has been shown to have effectiveness in treating depression and relieving osteoarthritic pain.
