Neurotransmitter Panel (Basic)
Urinary neurotransmitter (NT) levels provide an overall assessment of your body's ability to make and break down neurotransmitters and are representative of whole body levels. Whole body neurotransmitter levels correlate with symptoms and provide a valuable tool for achieving balance and wellbeing.
This panel contains the following 9 neurotransmitters:
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that play an important role in sustaining good mental and physical health since they are responsible for the highs and lows of feelings. Through their influence on the pituitary gland, they are the connection between your emotions and production of hormones such as cortisol, testosterone, and estrogen. In turn, your hormones can also influence neurotransmitter production.
When functioning properly the neurotransmitter system has natural checks and balances. However, alterations in the nine neurotransmitters found in this panel play a significant role in contributing to symptoms such as cognitive disorders, depression, anxiety, diminished drive, fatigue and sleep difficulties, cravings, addictions, and pain.
Since testing for and optimizing your neurotransmitter function can have a profound influence on your overall health and well-being, ordering this panel may be the first step to feeling better and enjoying your life again!
