The Beneficial Compounds found In Our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules May Help Someone Suffering From A Mental Disorder

Tyrosine's primary purpose is to support the formation of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are important because they carry "messages" from one nerve cell to another and they play a vital role in muscular function. A loss of neurotransmitters can lead to physical and mental burnout and fatigue as well as depression. Tyrosine, through its effect on neurotransmitters, may affect several health conditions including depression, dementia, phenylketonuria (PKU) and other mood disorders.(4)

Alanine promotes mental vigor, muscle coordination, and calm emotions.

Niacin called nicotinic acid is also referred to as vitamin B3. Niacin supports nervous system function. It is used in the synthesis of sex hormones, treating schizophrenia and other mental illnesses and as a memory-enhancer. People report increased mental alertness when they consume large dosages of Niacin.

Glutamic Acid is one of nature's “brain foods”; It is especially important in brain metabolism. It functions as a brain fuel by serving as an excitatory neurotransmitter. 

Glutamic Acid transports potassium across the blood-brain barrier, combines to form L-Glutamine and, in the process, picks up ammonia radicals. This is the only method the brain has of ridding itself of ammonia. 

L-Glutamine sustains mental ability and is important in the metabolism of sugars and fats. 

Glutamic Acid speeds the healing of ulcers gives a "lift" from fatigue and helps control alcoholism, schizophrenia and the craving for sugar.

Tryptophan is vital because it has a direct effect on serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that's in charge of the regulation of sleep patterns, mood, appetite, and mental operations such as thinking and learning. 

The main action of several classes of antidepressant medicines is pretty much similar to the modulation of serotonin at the terminal point of the brain.
