Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by the nervous system to relay information from one nerve to another. Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Imbalances can cause the brain and the body to be over- or under-stimulated, producing neurological or psychological symptoms. Genetics, environment, chemicals and nutritional deficiencies are a few factors that can impact neurotransmitter production. Once out of balance, the nervous system begins to compensate – which, in time, can lead to neurological or psychological symptoms.
Common neurotransmitter-related causes of health issues involve-
- Anxiety & Depression
- Panic attacks
- Chronic Fatigue
- Sleep disturbances
- Severe PMS
- Loss of appetite

It uses a non-invasive sample collection method, such as saliva or dried urine, that can be done at home.
It includes a comprehensive panel of 14 neurotransmitters and metabolites, which can reveal systemic patterns and underlying causes of imbalances.
It can be combined with hormone testing, which can provide a more accurate assessment of the interactions between the neurological and endocrine systems.
It can help monitor the effectiveness of treatments, such as supplements, medications, or lifestyle changes, on neurotransmitter levels.
Some of the more common psychological conditions today are known to be accompanied by neurotransmitter imbalances. Testing helps clarify these root issues.
