Alchemy of health Webinar Series – How Amino Acids help Anxiety and Depression
Specific Amino Acids are required for production of brain chemicals which help manage anxiety and depression.
Why is it Important?
Amino acids are primary curators of mediation between management of anxiety and depression and neurotransmission in the brain. After all, amino acids are the starting point in production of happy and sad brain chemicals like serotonin, Dopamine and GABA.
The burgeoning interest in neuro-chemistry and neuroplasticity cannot ignore the vital role of amino acids as a foundational substrate in synthesis, cross-talk and synergism between microbial ecology, genetics, enzymatic function, and the balance of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters.
Understanding of the complex interplay between amino acids in mental health and the gut-brain axis, assessment and modulation of amino acid production will be elucidated.
Functional assessments of amino acids and neurotransmitters reveal a thorough evaluation of the systems that interact to govern key facets of stress, anxiety and depression in mental health offering a therapeutic edge allowing for zeroing on targeted amino acid therapy.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Which amino acids are needed for neurotransmitter production?
- What dose and how frequency are they needed?
- How do amino acids work in other organ systems which impact mood?
- How do they work with prescription medication?
- The dynamic orchestration of amino acids in neurotransmitter balance
- Role of amino acids in synthesis of neurotransmitters
- Interpreting labs and targeted personalized amino acid therapy
