Balance-D 60c by NeuroScience
Contains ingredients important for the synthesis of dopamine, a catecholamine important for positive affect, mood, and memory*
N-acetyl-L-cysteine: Precursor to L-cysteine (1). L-cysteine is required for the synthesis of glutathione, an endogenous antioxidant important for mediating oxidative stress in dopaminergic cells (2, 3).
N-acetyl-L-tyrosine: L-tyrosine is a precursor to catecholamines including dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.
Mucuna cochinchinensis seed extract (99% L-DOPA): Natural source of L-DOPA (4). L-DOPA crosses the blood-brain barrier and is the direct precursor to dopamine(5).*
Vitamins B and C: Active forms of vitamin B6, folate, and C are important for catecholamine synthesis(6-8).*
