Dopamine For Mental Drive

Dopamine Brain Food is a nootropic stack made from natural ingredients and formulated to support natural neurotransmitter metabolism for optimal mental performance.

Research shows the neurotransmitter dopamine is associated with confidence, motivation, attention and learning as well as movement and balance.

L-Tyrosine

L-Tyrosine a promising cognitive enhancer

Dutch researchers conducting a meta-analysis on L-tyrosine concluded that this amino acid “is a promising cognitive enhancer” [1]

Blood levels of L-Tyrosine may be linked to quality of life

A 2004 study found that “normal tyrosine concentrations, compared to increased tyrosine concentrations, may be associated with fatigue and diminished quality of life.”

Specifically, they reported that Physical Functioning, Role Functioning Physical, Bodily Pain, General Health, Vitality, Social Functioning, Role Emotional Functioning, and Mental Health all increased as tyrosine levels increased. [2]

L-Phenylalanine

L-Phenylalanine (and L-Tyrosine) leads to increased alertness and arousal

A peer-reviewed paper published in 2008 concluded that L-Tyrosine and L-Phenylalanine are precursors to the neurotransmitter and that “dietary supplements that contain tyrosine and/or phenylalanine lead to alertness and arousal” [3]

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 a rate-limiting substrate for dopamine production

Research shows that “the role of vitamin B6 in amino acid metabolism makes it a rate limiting cofactor in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and GABA” [4]

Vitamin B6 supports healthy immune function and metabolism

A pair of papers from 2012 and 2013 showed that “Vitamin B6 has a direct effect on immune function and gene transcription/expression and plays a role in brain glucose regulation.” [5,6]

Vitamin B6 may support healthy neural cells

A review of cognitive enhancement and prevention studies concluded that Vitamin B6 plays a crucial role in helping the body maintain normal, healthy cognition through the aging process. [7]

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 supports healthy nerves and neural cell function

A 2006 review of the roles of folate and Vitamin B12 and their impact on the nervous system highlighted the importance of adequate B12 levels for healthy neuronal function. [8]

The same 2013 study mentioned above shows that Vitamin B12 is crucial for the maintenance of normal, healthy cognitive function and memory recall through one’s lifespan. [5]

Folate

Folate Linked to DNA function and neuronal differentiation

Folate contributes to the normal, healthy functioning of our brains. A 2007 study connected folate to “reactions in brain tissue” including “DNA stability, gene expression/transcription, neuronal differentiation, hippocampal development, and propagation of action potentials”. [9]

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is neuroprotective antioxidant

A 2007 study and a 2009 meta-analysis report that Vitamin C is not only a powerful antioxidant, but that it is also a neuroprotective compound. By reducing oxidative stress and helping to remove metabolic waste, Vitamin C keeps brain cells “cleaner” and supports normal cell functioning. [10,11]

Vitamin C prevents oxidation of vitamins, minerals and amino acids

Vitamin C is the primary antioxidant present in our bloodstream and it exerts its beneficial effects on our cells as well as other vitamins, minerals and amino acids, including [12]

Trimethylglycine

TMG improves body composition, muscle size, and endurance

Commonly found in beets, spinach and shellfish, TMG or trimethylglycine is also known as Betaine.

Betaine has been used by many athletes and fitness enthusiasts as a natural ergogenic aid. A 2013 study published data supporting TMG’s ability to increase muscle size, work capacity (endurance) and body composition after 6 weeks of supplementation. [15]


Ingredients

image

L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine are amino acid precursors to dopamine - both must be present in order for dopamine to be synthesized. L-Phenylalanine is present in many foods (such as meat and dairy), and is converted into L-Tyrosine in the body. In turn, L-Tyrosine is converted into L-Dopa, the direct precursor to dopamine.

image

Each of these essential vitamins play a key role in the optimal production of dopamine. Vitamin B6 helps convert L-Dopa into dopamine and Vitamin C helps convert dopamine into norepinephrine (increasing alertness and attention). Each of these also have important antioxidant properties that protect cells from damage during the production and metabolism of dopamine.

Methylation is a vitally important process that occurs throughout the body. This process allows metabolic reactions to be carried out effectively and undisturbed.

Folate, Vitamin B12 and trimethylglycine are added to Dopamine Brain Food™ to lend support to the methylation process, and to aid in the generation of S-adenosyl methionine (SAM-E). SAM-E is an amino acid that also plays an important role in the methylation process by helping to convert norepinephrine to epinephrine for use in attention-based activities.

  • Folate - 1 mg
  • Vitamin B12 - 5 mg
  • Trimethylglycine - 750 mg

L-Phenylalanine & L-Tyrosine

500mg / 650mg

L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine are amino acid precursors to dopamine - both must be present in order for dopamine to be synthesized. L-Phenylalanine is present in many foods (such as meat and dairy), and is converted into L-Tyrosine in the body. In turn, L-Tyrosine is converted into L-Dopa, the direct precursor to dopamine.

Vitamin B6 & Vitamin C

5mg / 500mg

Dopamine's function as a neurotransmitter is to support feelings of motivation, focus, attention, mood, and reward-seeking behavior.

How can I increase my Dopamine levels?

The best way to increase dopamine levels is to consume the necessary precursors and cofactors the body needs to produce dopamine naturally. These include the amino acids Tyrosine, L-Phenylalanine, vitamin B6 and vitamin C among others.

Additionally, engaging in regular physical exercise, sleeping 7-8 hours per night, and engaging in activities that bring you pleasure can also help increase dopamine levels. 

What is a Dopamine agonist?

A dopamine agonist is a compound that activates dopamine-producing receptors in the brain. Dopamine receptors activate signaling pathways that facilitate neurotransmission -- the transfer of chemical signals in the nervous system.

Most commonly, the phrase "dopamine agonist" is reserved for a class of drugs that activates dopamine-producing receptors.

Are Dopamine Supplements safe?

Natural amino acid, herbal, or botanical-based supplements are largely considered safe provided the product is from a reputable brand.

Great add-on for my pre-workout stack!

I've been consistently training for over 20 years (for competition and general health.) Since I've started taking NS Dopamine with my morning pre-workout supplementation and I've found that I stay more motivated and focused throughout 1.5 hour intense workouts. Thanks Natural Stacks for a great nootropic supplement line.

Seems to be helpful

approximately 4.5 overall... Added this supplement recently after learning from an Epigenetics coach that my DNA markers indicated a high possibility of low dopamine. Seems to help anxiety and depression and possibly sleep, possibly helping memory and attention. Hard to tell though as it has been combined with a strict dietary change. I believe these are probably helping a lot but would suggest getting many nutrients from a healthy diet to accompany it.

wish i could dock half a star instead of a full one... but price point is a little higher than i wish.

Focus!

I go to work super early every morning. By 7am, I’ve already put in a full day’s work. Dopamine Brain Food gives me the focus and mental clarity I need to function at my best, even if I don’t get a good nights sleep. Oh and did I mention, I’m 53, and my co-workers can’t keep up with me! Thanks for a superior product!
