Contains ingredients important for the synthesis of dopamine, a catecholamine important for positive affect, mood, and memory*
N-acetyl-L-cysteine: Precursor to L-cysteine, which is required for the synthesis of glutathione (1)* Glutathione provides antioxidant protection and is an important mediator of oxidative stress in dopaminergic neurons (2,3).
N-acetyl-L-tyrosine: L-tyrosine is a precursor to catecholamines including dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.
Mucuna cochinchinensis seed extract (99% L-DOPA): Natural source of L-DOPA (4). L-DOPA crosses the blood-brain barrier and is the direct precursor to dopamine (5).*
Vitamin B and C: Active forms of vitamin B6, folate, C are important for catecholamine synthesis (6-8).*
