What Are Neurotransmitters?

“Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers. Your brain uses these messengers to tell your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, your muscles to move and your stomach to digest. They also affect your energy levels, metabolism, mood, sleep, and concentration. Many things can cause a neurotransmitter imbalance. Excessive stress, poor diet, toxins, genetics, inflammation, alcohol, and caffeine usage can disrupt the balance between these communicators and cause health concerns.”
