How to balance your brain naturally
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that help relay information throughout the body.
They transmit information through nerve cells called neurons.
In its most basic form a neuron has two ends (although either can have multiple branches): an axon and a dendrite.
A neuron communicates with other neurons by sending neurotransmitters from its axon to a dendrite of another neuron.
The space between the axon and the dendrite is called a synapse; this is the space across which a neurotransmitter must cross.
Once the neurotransmitter is released from the receptor, it is either taken back up into the synaptic vesicle of the axon by a neurotransmitter reuptake pump/transporter or it is destroyed by enzymes that are present in the synapse.
If the neurotransmitters are taken back up into the pre-synaptic neuron via the reuptake transporters, they are protected and can be used again.
Bundles of neurons run from your brain to every organ and system in your body.
NTs help to control and regulate most of your body’s functions including:
Most people exhibit more than one of these conditions but fail to make the connection between them.
