Mental Health, Mood & Concentration

Most neurotransmitters are made from peptides obtained from the protein in the food you consume. Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that motivate or sedate, focus or frustrate. Their complex interaction is what shifts your mood and changes your mind.

Peptides are the building blocks of your brain’s network. Peptides can excite or calm your brain as well as nourish your brain throughout its lifetime. Even in the best of times your brain is often malnourished, which is then reflected in your emotions and behaviour.

The peptides tryptophan and tyrosine for example must both cross the blood-brain barrier. If tryptophan crosses the barrier, it will have a calming effect. If tyrosine wins out, then you will be energized and alert. When the brain’s tryptophan levels are increased, the serotonin that promotes contentment and normal sleep is increased.

Raised tyrosine levels in the blood and brain causes neurons to manufacture norepinephrine and dopamine, two neurotransmitters that promote alertness and activity. Norepinephrine, also called noradrenalin, is the primary excitatory neurotransmitter needed for motivation, alertness, and concentration. Your brain requires norepinephrine to form new memories and to transfer them to long-term storage

Age-related cognitive decline is associated with dopamine changes in the brain. People whose hands tremble from Parkinson’s disease have a diminished ability to synthesize dopamine, which is crucial to fine muscle coordination. Attention deficits are also connected to dopamine.

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins. Your body breaks down dietary protein into the peptides it uses to assemble the 50,000 different protein-combinations it needs to function – including neurotransmitters and chromosomes, hormones and enzymes.

Find out about the challenging journey amino acids take to your brain and the important role amino acids play. Keep in mind that only the digested amino acids (peptides) play a role. Those that are not digested are transported out the body without positive effect. If you are using a complete amino acid supplement and do not detect any changes, you might want to contact a physician or change product.

Amino acids at work for your mental health, mood & concentration

Methionine (Essential Amino Acid)
reduces the level of histamine in the body which can cause the brain to relay wrong messages
Phenylalanine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • used by the brain to produce norepinephrine, a chemical that transmits signals between nerve cells in the brain
  • promotes alertness and vitality
  • elevates mood
  • decreases pain
  • aids memory and learning
  • acts as an antidepressant
Threonine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • a natural relaxant
  • helps alleviate insomnia by inducing normal sleep
  • reduces anxiety and depression and stabilizes mood
  • helps in the treatment of migraine headaches
  • helps control hyperactivity in children
  • helps maintain positive mood and good cognitive functions
  • is a natural precursor of serotonin, which is essential for the maintenance of emotional balance and serenity
  • contributes to optimal relaxation, mental and physical wellbeing
  • contributes to maintain a normal healthy restful sleep
Valine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • promotes mental vigour and calm emotions
  • promotes mental energy
  • serves as a natural tranquilizer
Aspartic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
increases stamina and is good for chronic fatigue and depression
Cysteine & Cystine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
protects the liver and brain from damage due to alcohol, drugs, and toxic compounds found in cigarette smoke
Glutamic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • is an excitatory neurotransmitter for the central nervous system, the brain and spinal cord
  • acts as fuel for the brain
Glutamine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • a “brain fuel” that increases brain function and mental activity
  • alleviates fatigue, depression and impotence
  • is important along with glucose in supplying the brain with energy
  • increase mental alertness
  • to nutritionally boost the nervous system
  • contributes to the healthy function of the nervous system and the brain
  • supports concentration and mental performance under conditions of mental or physical exertion
  • helps to maintain working memory and brain performance in aging adults
Tyrosine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • acts as a mood elevator
  • has been used to help anxiety, depression and headaches
  • precursor to epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine, three important brain neurotransmitters involved in mood, mental function and sex drive
  • used by the thyroid gland for the production of Thyroxine, a vital hormone involved in regulating growth, metabolism, skin health and mental state limits mental fatigue during exposure to environmentally adverse conditions
