A simple urine test can assess these neurotransmitter levels...
* These neurotransmitters calm you down and make you happy, whilst the others assist with addiction and provide energy, motivation and focus.

In any one year, around 1 million Australian adults have depression, and over 2 million have anxiety - Beyond Blue
A neurotransmitter imbalance is seen in various mental health disorders, such as Depression, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Parkinson’s Disease and panic attacks!
Glutamine, which is an amino acid found in protein; is either converted to GABA, which is inhibitory - calms you down - or glutamate, which is excitatory - speeds you up. Without optimal levels of the co-factors to create GABA , then your body will create glutamate instead, exacerbating anxiety.
