Dopamine plays a role in a variety of different behaviours. It drives the exchange of information from one brain area to another, it involved in learning and generating new ideas.

Dopamine deficiency is associated with: addiction, depression, bipolar syndrome, lack of motivation, isolation, carbohydrate craving and lack of energy.

Release of dopamine creates feelings of pleasure and satisfaction. Many things can simulate the release of extra dopamine including tasty food, sex, alcohol, cocaine, heroin, gambling and other highrisk behaviours such as adrenaline sports can stimulate the release of dopamine and induce a pleasurable euphoric feeling. Basically if something feels good and gives you a rush it probably involves dopamine.

So, comfort eating when your body doesn’t need food may be an attempt to increase low levels of dopamine. Using sex as a pick you up when you feel stressed, low and depressed or in an addictive way can also be a compensation for low dopamine. Although sex addiction may include complex psychology and warrant psychotherapy, improving ones’ dopamine status can help take the edge off the lows that may trigger the behavior.

The effect of drugs especially cocaine on dopamine levels is well researched, and again the combination of psychotherapy and balancing ones dopamine levels is recommended, and may provide the road to recovery some individuals.

Low levels of dopamine can also be involved in depression, particularly the type of depression that includes physical tiredness and lack of motivation.

Parkinson disease is also associated with low dopamine levels, but I have no clinical experience in treating this condition.

FUNCTIONS

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that affects brain processes that control movement, emotional response and is the source of brain’s power and energy.

This formula has been specially formulated to support dopamine production for a more energetic brain.

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that must be obtained through the diet. Found primarily in high protein sources such as meat and eggs, it plays an important role in regulating the nervous system.

DLPhenylalanine can be used to metabolize two distinct chemicals. Both the D and L forms can be converted to phenylethylamine, which may have regulating effects in mood and feelings of well-being. The L form can be converted to tyrosine, an important amino acid used to produce certain<neurotransmitters.

Tyrosine is a precursor of important neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine, epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline).

The synthesis of these neurotransmitters is limited by the rate of tyrosine entry from plasma into the brain. L-tyrosine is a conditionally essential  amino acid that can be manufactured by the body from the essential amino acid phenylalanine. Therefore, adequate tyrosine production depends on a sufficient supply of phenylalanine in the diet.

Symptoms of Dopamine Deficiency

  • Loss of motivation.
  • Difficulty to start or complete tasks.
  • Feelings of inadequacy.
  • Lack of hope.
  • Irritability.
  • Inability to handle stress.
  • Wrath in the face of stress.
  • Wish to isolate.
  • Loss of interest in family and friends.
  • Fatigue.
  • Inability to experience pleasure.
  • Insomnia.
  • Hard time getting going in the morning
  • Mood swings.
  • Forgetfulness.
  • Memory loss.
  • Inability to focus and concentrate.
  • Inability to connect with others.
  • Sugar cravings.
  • Caffeine cravings.
  • Inability to lose weight.

Health conditions linked to dopamine deficiency:

  • Chronic inflammation (1).
  • Genetic disorders (2).
  • Hormone imbalance (3).
  • Manganese toxicity (4)
  • Mercury toxicity (5).
  • Obesity (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
  • Parkinson’s disease (15).
  • Substance abuse (16, 17, 18)
  • Thyroid disorders (19).

SIDE EFFECTS

Do not use if you have phenylketonuria (PKU). If you are pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription medications such as L-dopa for Parkinson’s disease, MAOIs, or antipsychotics, consult with a physician before using this product.

RESEARCH

Inflammation Effects on Motivation and Motor Activity: Role of Dopamine (1).

Impacts of stress and sex hormones on dopamine neurotransmission in the adolescent brain (2).

Overeating, Obesity, and Dopamine Receptors (3).

Prolonged high fat diet reduces dopamine reuptake without altering DAT gene expression (4).

Exposure to elevated levels of dietary fat attenuates psychostimulant reward and mesolimbic dopamine turnover in the rat (5).

The role of dopamine in motivation for food in humans: implications for obesity (6).

Insulin induces long-term depression of ventral tegmental area dopamine neurons via endocannabinoids (7). 

Use ofthis product should be limited to less than 2 grams per day.

This formula may help symptoms related to loss of brain energy and dopamine: fatigue, lightheadedness, weight gain, routine task difficulty, diminished libido, and sexual dysfunction.
