Mood Sync Serotonin Link
A good amino acid supplement like this one is absolutely essential for addiction recovery. Mood Sync includes L-tyrosine, GABA, taurine, 5-HTP, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. The vitamin C and vitamin B6 are both absolutely vital for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain. However, keep in mind that a vitamin B6 supplement is still necessary to get the full dosage of 25mg/day since this supplement only supplies 6mg of the vitamin.
L-tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine, while 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, making this a balanced mix that will give the brain enough material to make the right amount of dopamine and serotonin as needed. Taurine regulates glutamate deficiency, and GABA works with the GABA receptors in the brain.
WARNING: DO NOT COMBINE THIS SUPPLEMENT WITH ANTIDEPRESSANT MEDICATIONS, METHAMPHETAMINES, OR OTHER PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS OR STREET DRUGS. Mood Sync contains 5-HTP, a substance that when combined with certain drugs (specifically SSRI medications, MAOI’s or amphetamine drugs) can lead to Serotonin Syndrome. Wait at least 2 weeks after taking one of these drugs/medications before taking 5-HTP. If you feel like you may relapse, wait to take 5-HTP until you feel relatively confident about your control over your addiction.
