What are neurotransmitters

Acute or chronic stress – whether it is physical or mental – can affect the balance of our neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are molecules that convey signals between nerve cells in our nervous system. Neurotransmitters are important for our behaviour and emotions and studies have shown that depression is linked to the levels of our neurotransmitters. This test measures serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. If you in addition would like to analyse GABA and glutamate, you can choose the test Neurotransmitter Test Plus.


Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter for our general well-being and is a precursor to melatonin that is needed for our sleep, as well as an antagonist to cortisol. It is best known for its effect on our mood, but serotonin also has a positive effect on sleep, peristalsis, appetite and blood pressure.

  • Antidepressant effect
  • Calms anxiety
  • Mood-raising
  • Relaxing
  • Regulates sleep
  • Appetite regulator

Low levels are associated with, for example, obesity, depression, anxiety, insomnia, compulsive obsessive behaviour and migraines.

Stress affects the levels of serotonin. During acute stress, serotonin levels rise at first, but with prolonged stress, less and less serotonin is produced at the same time as the body uses more serotonin, which means that the levels decrease.


Dopamine is needed for our drive, motivation, concentration and our cognitive ability. Dopamine is part of our reward system and is known as the feel-good hormone. Low levels can make us feel unmotivated and depressed. Dopamine has also been linked to restless legs, impaired motor skills, obsessive compulsive and addictive behaviour. In Parkinson’s disease, the nerve cells that produce dopamine die, which leads to the tremors that occur with the disease.

Excessive levels of dopamine can lead to memory loss, anxiety, hyperactivity and mood swings. There is a direct link between addiction and imbalanced dopamine levels.


Adrenaline, also called epinephrine, is produced in the adrenal medulla and affects our mental activity, heart rate and blood pressure. Threatening and stressful situations can trigger the secretion of adrenaline.


The general function of noradrenaline, also called norepinephrine, is to mobilise the brain and body for action. It increases blood pressure and, together with dopamine, has a positive effect on motivation, concentration and motor skills. Norepinephrine increases with stress and is a precursor to adrenaline.

How does the Neurotransmitters Basic test work?

All our health tests including our urine tests are done from home. A tube is filled with urine and then sent to our ISO certified lab for analysis. You collect the sample from the second morning urine. The sample is then sent to the lab for analysis and you will receive your answer digitally.

    Wow!!! This exceeded all my expectations. Five stars!!!

  2. Julie L

    I have been working with my health issues for 1,5 year now (hormones and gut) but it wasn’t until I worked with my neurotransmitters that I felt completely myself again. For me this has been great and I think I will keep checking this yearly since this is so immensely important. I recommend this test!

  3. Luther

    I’ve had a persistent lack of energy and difficulty focusing, and I was suspecting that my neurotransmitter levels might be off. GetTested’s basic neurotransmitters test was recommended to me by a friend. After taking the test, it was pretty straightforward to send it back for analysis. When I received my results, I was relieved to finally have a tangible explanation for my symptoms. It’s been a game-changer for me, and I’m now on a plan to balance my neurotransmitter levels. Couldn’t recommend this test more.

    As a bio-hacker, always on the lookout for tools to optimise my brain’s performance, the Neurotransmitters Basic test was a compelling find. Its promise to shed light on the brain’s chemical backdrop had me hooked immediately. First impressions? Smooth. The delivery was quick, and the collection process, aided by precise instructions, was surprisingly straightforward. But what truly grabbed my attention were the results. The granularity of the data, combined with its clear presentation, was commendable. Every neurotransmitter was broken down, its role elucidated, and its level analysed. What followed was a deeper exploration into my own mental patterns. The test wasn’t just diagnostic; it was profoundly educational. It prompted a reassessment of my lifestyle choices, from diet to sleep. Working alongside my healthcare provider, I used these insights to make evidence-based adjustments, pushing towards peak cognitive functioning.

    The value of this test isn’t just in its immediate results. Its lasting impact lies in the transformative journey it catalyses. It’s not just about numbers or chemicals. It’s about understanding the mind’s underpinnings and actively moulding it for the better. A must-try for anyone serious about brain optimisation. 🙂
