The treatment of these hypodopaminergic traits and behaviours must include a focus on several neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin and GABA, along with endorphins (enkephalin) and glutamate.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNutritional support is an essential cornerstone to assist in improving the status of the brain-reward cascade, and the resulting modulation of neurotransmitters and dopamine homeostasis.¹\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eSynergistic Nutrients To Support The BrainReward Cascade\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAccording to research, the isomer of Phenylalanine, D-Phenylalanine, blocks the breakdown of enkephalins, natural opioid peptides that are released as a response to pain or stress, by inhibiting the enzyme enkephalinase. As a result, enkephalin activity in the hypothalamus increases, reducing cravings and associated mood disturbances.¹ The adjunctive support of L-Phenylalanine, a dopamine precursor, supports the increased synthesis of dopamine at the Ventral-Tegmental Area (VTA), elevating mood for those in a hypodopaminergic state.²\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe use of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) alongside DLPhenylalanine is important as it can modulate dopamine and glutamate which are also involved in dependence traits and behaviours.³, ⁴ NAC reduces oxidative stress induced by giving in to cravings, and inhibits the downregulation of dopamine transporters that can occur as a result of disproportionate dopamine release.⁵\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNAC and Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) can both support the production of glutathione and reduce oxidative stress, with NAD’s reduced form stimulating glutathione production.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe availability of substrates and cofactors for neurotransmitter synthesis is also crucial. For example, L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), along with the amino acid Tryptophan and Vitamin B6 is required for serotonin synthesis, while Chromium polynicotinate acts on insulin receptors to aid serotonin receptor sensitivity.¹\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eProviding sufficient Glutamine and Vitamin B6 aids the production of the brain’s chief inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA in the substantia nigra, an area of the brain which plays a crucial role in reward and movement.¹ The calming property of GABA is also important for sleep, craving response and mood disturbances.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eSupports Healthy Pain Perception\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMany patients suffer from pain conditions, and unfortunately it often affects mood, digestion and overall quality of life. DL-Phenylalanine increases the activity of enkephalin in the brain, thereby regulating pain perception and response, as well as reward and behavioural reinforcement.6 Research has shown that DLphenylalanine can potentiate the activity of certain pain medications, resulting in less need for pain relief and also reduced side effects related to their actions.⁷\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe emotional sensitivity of physical and psychological stress can enhance pain perception in some people. Supplementation with L-Theanine was found to decrease acute physical stress by inhibiting neuron excitation and reducing the sympathetic nervous system response.8\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSupporting serotonin production with 5-HTP is also important as serotonin levels have been implicated in regulating numerous physiological presentations including pain sensation, sleep, depression and anxiety which can all be co-morbid with pain conditions.⁹\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2075\/8503\/files\/Vera_s_Formulations_S.U.D_10_off_RRP_-_HealthMasters_1024x1024.jpg?v=1586321446\" alt=\"Vera’s Formulations S.U.D 10% off RRP Figure 1 - HealthMasters\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\"\u003eIn this cascade, stimulation of the serotonergic system in the hypothalamus leads to the stimulation of delta\/mu receptors by serotonin to cause a release of enkephalin.

The treatment of these hypodopaminergic traits and behaviours must include a focus on several neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin and GABA, along with endorphins (enkephalin) and glutamate.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNutritional support is an essential cornerstone to assist in improving the status of the brain-reward cascade, and the resulting modulation of neurotransmitters and dopamine homeostasis.¹\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eSynergistic Nutrients To Support The BrainReward Cascade\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAccording to research, the isomer of Phenylalanine, D-Phenylalanine, blocks the breakdown of enkephalins, natural opioid peptides that are released as a response to pain or stress, by inhibiting the enzyme enkephalinase. As a result, enkephalin activity in the hypothalamus increases, reducing cravings and associated mood disturbances.¹ The adjunctive support of L-Phenylalanine, a dopamine precursor, supports the increased synthesis of dopamine at the Ventral-Tegmental Area (VTA), elevating mood for those in a hypodopaminergic state.²\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe use of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) alongside DLPhenylalanine is important as it can modulate dopamine and glutamate which are also involved in dependence traits and behaviours.³, ⁴ NAC reduces oxidative stress induced by giving in to cravings, and inhibits the downregulation of dopamine transporters that can occur as a result of disproportionate dopamine release.⁵\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNAC and Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) can both support the production of glutathione and reduce oxidative stress, with NAD’s reduced form stimulating glutathione production.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe availability of substrates and cofactors for neurotransmitter synthesis is also crucial. For example, L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), along with the amino acid Tryptophan and Vitamin B6 is required for serotonin synthesis, while Chromium polynicotinate acts on insulin receptors to aid serotonin receptor sensitivity.¹\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eProviding sufficient Glutamine and Vitamin B6 aids the production of the brain’s chief inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA in the substantia nigra, an area of the brain which plays a crucial role in reward and movement.¹ The calming property of GABA is also important for sleep, craving response and mood disturbances.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eSupports Healthy Pain Perception\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMany patients suffer from pain conditions, and unfortunately it often affects mood, digestion and overall quality of life. DL-Phenylalanine increases the activity of enkephalin in the brain, thereby regulating pain perception and response, as well as reward and behavioural reinforcement.6 Research has shown that DLphenylalanine can potentiate the activity of certain pain medications, resulting in less need for pain relief and also reduced side effects related to their actions.⁷\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe emotional sensitivity of physical and psychological stress can enhance pain perception in some people. Supplementation with L-Theanine was found to decrease acute physical stress by inhibiting neuron excitation and reducing the sympathetic nervous system response.8\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSupporting serotonin production with 5-HTP is also important as serotonin levels have been implicated in regulating numerous physiological presentations including pain sensation, sleep, depression and anxiety which can all be co-morbid with pain conditions.⁹\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2075\/8503\/files\/Vera_s_Formulations_S.U.D_10_off_RRP_-_HealthMasters_1024x1024.jpg?v=1586321446\" alt=\"Vera’s Formulations S.U.D 10% off RRP Figure 1 - HealthMasters\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\"\u003eIn this cascade, stimulation of the serotonergic system in the hypothalamus leads to the stimulation of delta\/mu receptors by serotonin to cause a release of enkephalin.
