Do you ever feel sad or irritable for no reason? What about feeling anxious or worried? Do you struggle with being unfocused? All these can be linked to neurotransmitter levels being out of whack. Proper neurotransmitter balance is absolutely essential for optimal brain function.
WHAT ARE NEUROTRANSMITTERS?
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers released from neurons so that they can communicate to neighboring cells throughout your brain and body. While the exact number is not known, there are well over 100 neurotransmitters. Here are the functions of three major ones:
Serotonin is known as the “don’t worry, be happy” soothing neurotransmitter. It plays multiple roles in the brain’s biochemistry including:
- Facilitating sustained and deep sleep
- Maintaining a balanced mood
- Boosting self-confidence and social engagement
- Supporting a healthy appetite
- Decreasing worries and concerns
Additionally, serotonin is associated with learning and memory. Interestingly, although serotonin is manufactured in the brain, where it performs its primary functions, it is estimated that about 90% of our serotonin supply is found in the digestive tract and in blood platelets.
Often called the “motivation molecule,” dopamine provides the drive and focus you need to be productive. It is heavily involved with:
- Attention span
- Motor movements
- The ability to experience pleasure
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)
GABA is an amino acid that also functions as a neurotransmitter that is considered the brain’s main “calming” neurotransmitter. It is essential for brain metabolism and works to decrease neuronal activity and inhibit nerve cells from excess firing.
Although GABA’s primary responsibility is to help regulate the activity of neurons, it is also very important for the maturation of new nerve cells (neurogenesis). In addition, GABA has mild relaxation properties and can enhance mood and support sleep.
Better brain chemistry = better quality of life
Since your brain and life are inseparably linked, when your neurotransmitters are out of balance, you may experience difficulties in school, at work, at home, in relationships, or within yourself.
The brain is constantly seeking to keep itself balanced through increasing or decreasing amounts of these substances.
