Our emotions, craving, impulses and ultimately our actions are dependent on a finely tuned system of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are either “positive or negative” and essentially either tell part of our brains to turn on or turn off. The balance of these neurotransmitters is critical for “normal” healthy brain activity. But a deficiency or overproduction of any one of them can result in depression, anxiety, substance cravings and even addictions.
The primary negative or inhibitory neurotransmitters are gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA, and serotonin. GABA is associated with relaxation – mental more than emotional. Serotonin is more of an emotional relaxant.
The primary “positive” or excitatory neurotransmitters include dopamine and norepenephrine. Dopamine is the excitatory neurotransmitter responsible for pleasure & euphoria, and short-term intense concentration. Norepenephrine is responsible for sustained alertness.
The excess firing of excitatory neurons can result in anxiety, panic, obsessive and other disorders. It is the job of the negative neurotransmitters, including GABA and serotonin, to “turn off” the excess firing and the effects of the excitatory neurons.
MODER8 contains the amino acid and negative neurotransmitter, GABA, as well as 5-HTP – the precursor to serotonin. MODER8 also contains the amino acid L-Theanine, which is found in green tea. L-Theanine boosts GABA production and has a naturally calming effect.
In addition, MODER8 contains B vitamins which have been shown to be deficient in alcohol abusers. Vitamin B1 is instrumental in preventing brain damage due to alcohol abuse and B12 is important for a health nervous system. B6 helps to enhance the neurotransmitter levels.
MODER8 is not a pharmaceutical drug—it is classified as a dietary supplement. And unlike many competitive products, MODER8 contains no fillers or artificial additives.
