'Phenylalanine and Tyrosine, which are present in spirulina in large quantities are used by the brain to construct the neurotransmitter Norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is involved in the control of food intake. Research conducted by scientist James G. Gibbs reveals that food intake can be controlled in Rhesus monkeys with these precursor elements. Phenylalanine has also been found to be 89-100% effective in the treatment of depression.'
'Dopamine is synthesised from Tyrosine. Dopamine is the brain’s feel good chemical, sending feelings of well-being and pleasure into your body. In addition to simply making you feel good, dopamine helps control weight, energy levels, and supports brain and heart health. Without it, we would be more fat, unhappy, and tired. But if you know how to increase dopamine levels, you can take advantage of this feel good chemical on command.'
