Neurotransmitters: How They Affect Your Brain and Influence Your Thoughts

By Kelly Dunlap

This week on Master Your Mindset and Metabolism, I will be talking about neurotransmitters.  What are neurotransmitters? They are chemicals that are released in your brain during neural impulses that determine how your brain reacts to a stimulus.   Each neurotransmitter is responsible for certain responses to different stimuli in your day to day: Dopamine - this plays a large role in your pleasure-reward system, mood and attention Acetylcholine - this plays a role in your memory and attention GABA - this is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter that keeps the others in check.  This helps maintain organization, order and calmness Serotonin - this plays a role in relaxation and happiness the sense of well-being   These chemicals can be affecting your rest, your mood, any cravings you may have and even your happiness.  Certain deficiencies can actually cause you to crave and want certain foods, so you can see how these also play a huge role in weight loss and maintaining a certain lifestyle.   If you enjoyed this episode with me, screenshot the episode and tag me on your stories with your biggest takeaway - @kellyadunlap   Join Kelly’s free Facebook Community: Master Your Mindset & Metabolism with Kelly Dunlap   Connect with Kelly: Facebook Instagram
