What is Dopamine and how Adderall and Provigil help in increasing Dopamine?

Dopamine is one that plays an important role in brain and central nervous system. It is a neurotransmitter that plays a very critical role in the movement control. It has an appealing effect on the heart and its circulation, also on the rate of metabolism, and it could also mobilize many of the body’s energy reserves. It helps to modulate the control coordination, brain activity, and movement, and also to regulate the flow of information to different parts of the brain.

When your bodies dopamine level is high it is found that you are blessed with feelings of joy and happiness, pleasure, controlled motor movement, we feel focused and also appetite control and euphoric.When you have low Dopamine we feel no pleasure, our world would be looking colorless, we will start to get an inability to “love”, and we have no remorse about personal behavior and this might lead to ADHD. To treat ADHD there are excellent pills such as Adderall and Provigil.They are considered to be as psychostimulants.

The Psychostimulant medications Adderall (a racemic mixture of amphetamine salts) and Provigil are prescribed to help increase the use of norepinephrine and dopamine.The working mechanism of Provigil in increasing the dopamine level is just by targeting the Dopamine transporters. It has been found that the Provigil’s effect in the brain used to include the hypocretin, glutamate etc. But however they involve preclinical evidence, that the dopamine has been involved. From the microdialysis studies, it has been recognized that the Provigil used to increase the level of dopamine.

When the dopamine level is increased ADHD would be reduced within a short period of time.These drugs do not supply the body and the brain with the ingredients to equally balance all the chemistries. Drugs will just make the level of chemicals which you have to work differently, longer and harder.

Only nutrition you take in the format of food or nutritional supplements could improve the levels of available chemistry and that would attempt to support the continued building of the required transmitters, enzymes.

The targeted nutritional precursors which are the building blocks for normal human activities that have been shown by medical researchers in the past to assist them in improving the level of various neurotransmitters.

Dopamine and Norepinephrine are produced in the body from an amino acid (L-Phenethylamine) along with co-factors of vitamins and minerals. L-Phenethylamine is found in proteins in your diet.

Adderall is the other medication, that works effectively and would balance the imbalanced chemicals in the brain and would increase the Dopamine level.The working mechanism of Adderall is it used to force your brain to increase the dopamine level from the neurons into a synaptic space. But don’t get addicted to these medications, and also don’t use this for a longer period of time as it is addictive. It might lead to severe problems.
