SynaptaGenX is an amino acid supplement clinically proven to reduce and eliminate cravings for drugs, alcohol and unhealthy behaviors by balancing neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of satisfaction and pleasure.
Neurotransmitters are made from amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Several key neurotransmitters are particularly affected by and involved in addiction. These neurotransmitters need to be balanced to their normal state in order for someone in recovery to be free of chronic abstinence symptoms such as cravings, anxiety, irritability and depression. Over the past thirty years, numerous addiction clinicians have begun treating the brain with certain amino acids that can help restore healthy brain chemistry. This is the foundation for the development of SynaptaGenX, which is backed by over 30 published clinical trials.
The Brain and Amino Acids
Every living cell is produced in large part from amino acids. Reproducing, altering, or growing any type of cell requires a balance of various amino acids. Human behavior -- cognition, concentration, memory, mood, sleep, thirst, appetite, alertness, and emotions--involves functioning of the whole nervous system. The nervous system is regulated almost entirely by amino acids and their biochemical companions, vitamins and minerals.
Neurotransmitters are produced from amino acids: Serotonin is produced from L-tryptophan; dopamine is produced from L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine; endorphin and enkephalin levels are increased by D-phenylalanine; and the synthesis of GABA involves glutamine.
L-Tryptophan increases the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which may reduce cravings and help you relax and sleep. Its main purpose is to stimulate serotonin receptors in the brain reward circuitry. This action causes the release of the brain’s endorphins.
D-Phenylalanine is one of the most important amino acids for dopamine homeostasis. Its major action is to inhibit the enzyme that regulates the amount of endorphins in the brain.
L-Glutamine produces GABA in the brain. For this reason, its dosage is very important. Only a small amount of L-Glutamine is used in SynaptaGenX because too much GABA can can cause dopamine resistance, which can lead to dopamine deficiency.
L-Phenylalanine is converted in the brain to L-tyrosine, which is used to synthesize (with the help of Vitamin B6) dopamine.
L-Tyrosine synthesizes dopamine (with the help of Vitamin B6). It is the only amino acid that directly regulates dopamine.
As you can see, amino acids and brain functioning go hand-in-hand. Neurotransmitters built from amino acids can fill their respective neuron receptors and nourish the brain with what you may be missing. You might think that you can just take the amino acid that produces the neurotransmitter that may be deficient. But that can throw off the balance of the whole reward cascade. It is the interaction of all the neurotransmitters of reward that provides a sense of satisfaction and well-being. SynaptaGenX is formulated to give you just the right proportion of each amino acid for your brain to function the way nature intended. You don't have to figure out how much of what you need to take. SynaptaGenX has done it for you.
With SynaptaGenX, brain chemistry can be rebalanced resulting in rapid relief from cravings. In the short term, this therapy provides a jump start for recovery that allows people to better participate in the other aspects of treatment and to do so with more clarity and optimism. In the long term, it improves the quality and comfort of sobriety and reduces the risk of relapse.
