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 GABA, glutamic acid, serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine.


GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) is the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in our central nervous system. GABA reduces our stress response and is needed for sleep, to regulate appetite, blood pressure and to reduce anxiety. GABA is synthesised by glutamic acid.

GABA has a calming and relaxing effect and can reduce epileptic activity. Getting adequate sleep is one of the most important things for us to be able to recover and any imbalances in the levels of GABA can thus affect our well-being. If you are low on GABA, it is available as a supplement.

Glutamic acid / Glutamate

Glutamic acid / glutamate (not to be confused with the amino acid glutamine) is important for our cognitive ability, learning, memory and motor skills. It is the most important excitatory neurotransmitter and the neurotransmitter found in the largest amount in our brain. Glutamate is needed for the nerve signals between the cells to pass. During prolonged stress, glutamic acid is often elevated.

Many people think of glutamate as a food additive and glutamate is found naturally in meat, vegetables, wheat and soy and is used as a food additive to enhance the taste.


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 imbalance in the 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

    Science has always suggested that our minds are a complex web of interactions, but nothing brought it home for me quite like the Neurotransmitters Plus test. Having always been a proponent of understanding oneself better, I felt this test might offer a deeper dive into the intricacies of my brain’s chemistry. I wasn’t wrong. The delivery of the kit was commendably swift, and its contents neatly organized. What I particularly appreciated was the exhaustive instructional guide that accompanied the kit, ensuring that even someone unfamiliar with such tests could navigate the process with ease. Collecting the sample was, therefore, a walk in the park. The results, once they arrived, were a treasure trove of information. Each neurotransmitter was meticulously detailed, explaining its level and influence on mood, cognition, and overall mental health. The insights were not merely academic. They helped bridge the gap between my daily experiences and their potential neurochemical origins. Sharing these findings with my healthcare practitioner, we worked collaboratively to address certain imbalances, and I’ve since felt a palpable improvement in my cognitive and emotional well-being. For anyone contemplating taking charge of their mental health, this test is a powerful tool. It’s a marriage of science and introspection, leading to actionable, beneficial insights. 🙂 🙂
