Better brain chemistry = better quality of life
Your mental state is affected greatly by your brain chemistry. Some people have a sunny outlook on life, but others struggle to remain positive and even-tempered from day to day. NeuroLink provides an exclusive blend of nutrients that support key transmitters such as adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, GABA, glutamate, and serotonin.
Fires up brain synapses
The brain’s billions of nerve cells make trillions of connections with each other. These are called synapses. Each nerve cell generates electrical signals that travel as far as a synapse, where a chemical signal then bridges the gap between that cell and the next. These chemical signals are carried by specific messenger substances called neurotransmitters.
When your brain transmitters are balanced you can think more clearly, feel happier, and experience greater well-being. You’ll feel less anxious, enjoy a more positive outlook and cope more effectively in stressful situations.

Ingredients & Facts
NeuroLink delivers six powerful brain-balancing ingredients:
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate)
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin essential in the production and function of various neurotransmitters. It is also essential for early brain development. Vitamin B6 is also is required by at least 100 enzymes that help the body utilize amino acids, fatty acids, and carbohydrates. Neurolink contains Vitamin B6 as pyridoxal-5-phosphate, its most active form.
Tyrosine is an amino acid required for the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine, and of epinephrine and norepinephrine. The adrenal glands work together with the brain to manage stress, and also use tyrosine to make these same three transmitters. Your brain needs tyrosine to promote mental clarity during times of stress. Tyrosine is also needed by the thyroid gland to make the hormone thyroxine, and the skin needs it to make melanin.
GABA (Gamma-AminoButyric Acid)
GABA is an amino acid that regulates the excitability of nerve circuits in the brain, and is considered the brain’s main “calming” neurotransmitter. Before birth, GABA regulates the proliferation, positioning, and wiring together of the nerve cells. In adults, GABA tightly regulates the activity of synapses but also remains important for the growth of new nerve cells. Low levels of GABA are associated with brain hyperexcitability, untypical behavior, cognitive difficulties, and mood challenges.
Glutamine is an amino acid important in the synthesis of both glutamate, which is an excitatory neurotransmitter, and the calming transmitter GABA. Glutamate is a near-universal neurotransmitter, present in 80 percent of the brain’s nerve cells. It is an important regulator of learning and memory processes and is involved in healthy mood management.
Taurine is an amino acid that fulfill important regulatory roles in the brain, the eyes, and the other organs. It is essential for early brain and eye development, and is concentrated in the breast milk. All through life, taurine helps stabilize our nerve cell electrical activity, and protect against calcium overload that can kill brain cells. Taurine is also essential for healthy mitochondria, the tiny energy generators of all our cells. Taurine also promotes optimal performance of the GABA and glutamate transmitter systems.
This is a modified amino acid that, in the brain, is easily converted into serotonin. 5-HTP helps maintain mental and emotional well-being, reduce occasional feelings of anxiety, support behavioral self-control, promote calm and relaxation, and facilitate going to sleep. It’s also a powerful brain antioxidant.
GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid is an amino acid that regulates excitability of the brain through GABA receptors. It is essential for brain metabolism and functions to decrease neuronal activity and inhibit nerve cells from excess firing. GABA has mild relaxation properties and can enhance mood and support sleep. Clinical studies on GABA are limited but electroencephalogram (EEG) studies demonstrate the efficacy of GABA supplementation on increasing alpha band brain wave function, which serves to induce relaxation and alleviate stress.1,2

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is an extract from the African plant Griffonia Simplicifolia, and is the precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which plays a role in mood, sleep and appetite. Randomized clinical trials demonstrate the efficacy of 5-HTP supplementation supporting a healthy mood.1,2

L-tyrosine is an amino acid important in the synthesis of brain neurotransmitters. It is the precursor to the brain catecholamines norepinephrine and dopamine which are important in balancing mood and energy. It is also helpful in the process of producing thyroid hormones, which are important in metabolism. Tyrosine supplementation has been shown to improve cognitive performance in healthy individuals1-3 as well as those under periods of stress and fatigue.4-8 Stress tends to deplete the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, and tyrosine is the amino acid building block to replenish it.

Taurine is an amino acid that functions to stabilize nerve cell membranes by regulating the flow of information in and out of cells. Animal studies demonstrate that taurine has been shown to help with memory and thinking skills1 and as well as reducing anxiety,1,2 which suggests it can support a healthy mood and cognition. Taurine promotes relaxation by helping to balance GABA, the brains calming neurotransmitter.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin essential in the metabolic pathways of amino acids, glucose, and fatty acids and is a cofactor in the production of neurotransmitters including serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and GABA. It is required by the nervous system and is needed for normal brain function as well as DNA synthesis. Supplementation with Vitamin B6 alone and in combination with other nutrients has been shown to be helpful to improve attention in children.1-4

L-glutamine is an amino acid important in the synthesis of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate and the inhibitor neurotransmitter GABA. It is also a nutrient for the brain as it is used for energy if the brain does not have enough glucose to function.
