Supports emotional and mental well-being and moderates stress 5-hydroxytryptophan and l-tyrosine are key precursors for the synthesis of several neurotransmitters responsible for a healthy emotional outlook, including serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. These neurotransmitters are involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity in addition to sleep/wake cycles. Research suggests that l-tyrosine may also promote cognitive function and memory under stressful conditions. A healthy level of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA is also associated with promoting positive mood. Research suggests that both GABA and l-theanine enhance alpha wave production in the brain, promoting relaxation. Complementary support for relaxation is provided by passion flower, while Rhodiola rosea supports cognitive and mental function under stressful conditions.
