Urine Testing to Optimize Neurotransmitter Function

Neurotransmitter testing gets a bad rap; unfortunately, it is well deserved, as many labs, and many providers, have misused it in a ill-fated attempt to help people achieve proper neurotransmitter function. In order to understand how it is possible to use urine testing to help with the clinical determination of optimal amino acid dosing, we have to first look at what is really being measured. (more…)

Transporters – What They Are, What They Do, and Why They are Important

However, most people don’t understand what transporters are or what they do. Here is the science behind what transporters are, what they do and why they are so important to the success of amino acid therapy. (more…)
