Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are messenger molecules that allow nerve cells to communicate. These neurotransmitters regulate body functions including how we feel. Conventional diets wreak havoc on the systems that produce these substances. Essential amino acids are the building blocks for neurotransmitters and most people have protein deficient diets which interferes with the internal processes that make them. Modern medicine prescribes drugs for the symptoms that arise from neurotransmitter deficiencies which create even more issues. It’s a physiological viscous cycle.
