Learning more about maintaining a healthy balance of neurotransmitters
When you’re feeling your best, odds are that your neurotransmitters are in a healthy balance. Neurotransmitters are chemicals in the brain that are responsible for many important functions, including mood regulation, appetite, mental sharpness and energy. Neurotransmitters main function is to carry messages from the brain to the body. When they are balanced, your body is able to positively respond to the demands of day-to-day challenges.
A healthy neurotransmitter balance is essential for a healthy life—and a healthy lifestyle is the best way to maintain neurotransmitter balance. Diet and nutrition, physical activity, plus adequate rest and relaxation all aid in healthy neurological function.
Why should you be concerned with maintaining a healthy neurotransmitter balance? A healthy neurotransmitter balance provides you with the following:
- Focus, attention span, concentration, memory, mental sharpness and other healthy cognitive functions
- Support for depressed mood and mild to moderate mood changes caused by everyday stress
- Relief from occasional nervousness, nervous tension, and anxiety
- Support for mental and physical fatigue caused by emotional stress
Diet and nutrition are key factors that contribute to a healthy neurotransmitter balance. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and dairy will provide you with the nutrients your body needs to support neurotransmitter production and use. If you find that an adequate diet still leaves you short, a nutritional-herbal complex like Clarocet®, when used in conjunction with a well-balanced meal plan, can provide positive support for maintaining a healthy neurotransmitter balance and proper cell-to-cell communication. Sleep is another component for brain health. Adequate sleep is essential for the regulation of a healthy neurotransmitter balance. Occasionally, stress can interfere with sleep, causing sleep difficulty.
