Responsible for motivation, memory, and creativity, dopamine is a key neurotransmitter that also increases alertness and assertiveness.
Dopamine improves your balance and motor function, and is associated with increased learning capacity in both mental and physical pursuits.
L-Phenylalanine & L-Tyrosine
L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine are amino acid precursors to dopamine – both must be present in order for dopamine to be synthesized. L-Phenylalanine is present in many foods (such as meat and dairy), and is converted into L-Tyrosine in the body. In turn, L-Tyrosine is converted into L-Dopa, the direct precursor to dopamine.
Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, & Selenium
Each of these essential vitamins play a key role in the optimal production of dopamine. Vitamin B6 helps convert L-Dopa into dopamine, Vitamin C helps convert dopamine into norepinephrine (increasing alertness and attention), and selenium protects brain cells while regulating the amount of dopamine-producing enzymes in the brain. Each of these also have important antioxidant properties that protect cells from damage during the production and metabolism of dopamine.
Folate, Vitamin B12, & Trimethylglycine
The methylation cycle in the body is involved in virtually all cellular reactions, including the smooth operation of your neurotransmitters. SAM-E (S-adenosyl methionine) is a critical part of this process, ensuring that methylation is not disrupted by any chemical imbalances in the body. SAM-E also helps convert norepinephrine to epinephrine for use in attention based activities. Folate, Vitamin B-12 and Trimethylglycine convert homocysteine into SAME, maintaining an optimal level of this crucial precursor.
