Keeping Your Brain In Balance

Using Amino Acids to Balance Your Brain

Animal studies have shown that the production of neurotransmitters in the brain can be manipulated when specific amino acids are given in a large enough concentration to increase brain uptake relative to other amino acids that share the same transporter support.

These types of studies can’t readily be done in humans because it is difficult to measure exactly what changes occur inside the human brain. All in all, it seems reasonable that this simplistic approach of using amino acids to control the chemicals in our brains may assist in achieving a desired mood, energy level, or whatever therapeutic effect you desire.

There are many cautions, however, to using single amino acid supplements in pharmacological doses. The body is very clever at adapting to drastic changes in its environment. For example, when anabolic steroids like testosterone are misused for bodybuilding, the testicles stop producing endogenous testosterone because the levels in the body are already too high. In the brain, constant exposure to high levels of a chemical elicits changes to minimize the responsiveness and maintain function within a normal range. This phenomenon explains tolerance to drugs and alcohol.

A reasonable approach to optimizing amino acid availability at the blood brain barrier is to provide a steady, balanced complement of all the amino acids by eating a diet rich in high-quality proteins and by utilizing mixtures of supplemental essential amino acids.

If you do want to try single amino acid therapy, you should take the supplement in the post-absorptive state (several hours after your last meal) to minimize the presence of competing amino acids. Use reasonable recommended doses and follow instructions on duration of usage.

Each individual can vary somewhat in terms of how amino acids affect them and their brain chemistry because there are so many variables involved, not just in the making of brain neurotransmitters but also in terms of how we process and react to them.

Remember, the blood brain barrier exists to protect the brain, and it does a very good job at it. The system of transporting amino acids into the brain is very sophisticated in its ability to regulate the availability of precursors for many very important neurotransmitters. Ensuring a good supply of all the essential nutrients for the brain is an excellent foundation for optimal brain function.
