Let’s Start With the Problem

The brain uses a variety of chemicals including neurotransmitters to communicate between brain cells. They are used by the nervous system to relay information from one nerve to another. Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. If your nervous system is out of balance, so are you. Once your neurotransmitters are imbalanced the nervous system begins to compensate – which, in time, can lead to neurological or psychological symptoms. Although you can articulate a long list of symptoms, you can’t identify the underlying imbalances causing those symptoms. Many symptoms, such as fatigue, weight gain, anxiety, and sleep disturbances can have strikingly different underlying causes.

Work Toward Wellness

Before you can balance your neurotransmitter levels, you must start with a detailed assessment that offers real, meaningful insights. Measure the fifteen neurotransmitters and metabolites to help you correct an imbalance today or prevent problems from occurring in the future.

Panels Tested

Creatinine

Creatinine is a waste byproduct in the blood that passes through the kidneys to be filtered and eliminated in urine. Urinary creatinine is used in conjunction with dried urine tests simply to account for and correct results based on the hydration status of the individual.

5-HT

5-HT or 5-hydroxytryptamine, commonly referred to as Serotonin, is a monoamine neurotransmitter. Beyond the common linking of Serotonin and happiness, it has a complex role in learning, memory and even vomiting.

5-HIAA

5-HIAA or 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic acid is the main metabolite of Serotonin. Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter commonly associated with happiness but plays much more complex roles in learning and cognition.

GABA

GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid is an inhibitory neurotransmitter often associated with motor control, vision and anxiety.

Glycine

Glycine is an neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that plays a required inhibitory role for Glutamate.

Glutamate

Glutamate is the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter accounting for more than 90% of synaptic connections. Because of this glutamate is often associated with learning and memory.

Histamine

Histamine is a neurotransmitter that is involved in inflamatory response. Most notably is the role it plays in the itching phenomena.

PEA

PEA or Phenethylamine acts as a nuerotransmitter in the central nervous system. PEA is also potentially being used as an ADHD biomarker. While ADHD is still diagnosed using symptoms, there is some burgeoning science linking PEA to ADHD.

Dopamine

Dopamine belongs to both the catecholamine and phenethylamine families, it functions as both a neurotransmitter and hormone. Commonly associated with both happiness and drugs of abuse, dopamine also effects pain processing, ADHD and Parkinson's treatments.

DOPAC

DOPAC or 3,4-Dihydroxyphenylacetic acid is a metabolite of the neurotransmitter Dopamine. Dopamine is metabolized into three substances, DOPAC, 3-MT and HVA.

HVA

HVA or Homovanillic acid is a catecholamine metabolite associated with Dopamine levels in the brain. Dopamine is metabolized into three substances, DOPAC, 3-MT and HVA.

Norepinephrine

Norepinephrine, like Epinephrine, is a catecholamine neurotransmitter. It interacts with alpha receptors and has a larger effect on blood vessels while Epinephrine has a greater effect on the heart.

Epinephrine

Epinephrine is a catecholamine more commonly refered to as Adrenaline. This central nervous system neurotransmitter plays a role in increasing blood flow and heart rate.

VMA

VMA or Vanillylmandelic acid to be exact is a metabolite of Norepinephrine and shows correlation to elevated catecholamine (a class of neurotransmitters) levels.

NMN

NMN or Normetanephrine is a metabolite of norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is a neurotransmitter that effects blood pressure and heart rate.
