Neuro Level has been specially formulated to support the production of Serotonin and Dopamine, which maintains a balanced emotional state, which can help allay symptoms of ADD, ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Anger Issues, Migraine Headaches, and Adrenal Dysfunction. Serotonin is the brain neurotransmitter that regulates appetite, mood and melatonin production. Dopamine is the brain neurotransmitter that affects processes controlling movement and emotional response and the source of the brain’s power and energy. Low levels of either one can put you out of balance.
- Technical Specs
Neuro-Level may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to nutritionally support serotonin and dopamine production for a sense of well being and mood stability.*
