174: Anxiety, Neurotransmitters, and Nutrition
Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 174
Question: Anxiety, Neurotransmitters, and Nutrition
So there's a few trans neurotransmitters that are particularly relevant. Histamine is a key anxiety neurotransmitter. Another neuro-transmitter that's relevant is dopamine and I don't see dopamine as primarily actually causing baseline anxiety.
Measurement of neuro-transmitters is very difficult but you can get some hints and make some inferences. I would say the Genova methylation panel and the Genova ION panel plus sporty would give you more than enough to probe this stuff.
This Q&A can also be found as part of a much longer episode, here:
