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. The measure of creatinine in urine can be used to measure kidney function or as a benchmark to validate other urine test results.

Serotonin (5-HT)

Serotonin, also known as 5-HT or 5-hydroxytryptamine, is a neurotransmitter found mostly in the digestive and central nervous system. Beyond the commonly known link between serotonin and happiness/mood, it is also believed to be involved in appetite/digestion, sleep, memory, and sexual desire and function.

5-HIAA

5-HIAA, or 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic acid, is the main metabolite of Serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter commonly associated with happiness, but is also involved in appetite/digestion, sexual desire/function, sleep, and memory.

GABA

GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, acting to reduce or inhibit the activity of neurons/nerve cells. It has been linked to anxiety and plays a role in regulating brain function.

Glycine

Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brainstem and spinal cord. In this role, it participates in a variety of motor and sensory functions. Interestingly enough, in other areas of the brain, it can also promote the action of other excitatory neurotransmitters.

Glutamate

Glutamate is the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter. Glutamate works with GABA to control many of the brain’s processes and plays an especially important role in memory and learning.

Histamine

Histamine is a compound involved in local immune/allergic responses, in addition to acting as a neurotransmitter. Histamine is also involved in the inflammatory response and plays a key role as a mediator of itching.

PEA

PEA or Phenethylamine acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It is produced by the human body and is found in many foods. PEA is also being studied as a potential biomarker for ADHD.

Dopamine

Dopamine functions as both a neurotransmitter and hormone. Dopamine is a vital part of many body and brain functions, including mood, sleep, memory, learning, reward/pleasure, concentration, kidney/cardiac function, and motor control. It serves as the precursor for both norepinephrine and epinephrine.

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 is a precursor to epinephrine and works within the human body as both a neurotransmitter and hormone. The hormone version is synthesized in the adrenal gland (along with epinephrine). Norepinephrine plays a role in mood and concentration, and also helps the body respond to stress and exercise.

Epinephrine

Epinephrine, more commonly known as adrenaline, has powerful effects on the body.. Epinephrine acts as both a neurotransmitter and hormone, playing a primary role in the “fight or flight” response.

VMA

VMA or Vanillylmandelic acid, is a catecholamine metabolite. Elevated levels in urine testing could indicate the presence of a tumor.

NMN

NMN or Normetanephrine is a metabolite of norepinephrine. Urinary levels of NMN may be elevated in certain types of tumors.
