Abstract: front page image
(EN)The level of a catecholamine in neuronal synapses is increased in order to improve vigor by administering a neutral amino acid composition to a human wherein an increased brain level of a catecholamine is effected when the composition contains increased amounts of tyrosine and/ or phenylalanine. Increased or decreased brain levels of serotonin are obtained when the amino acid composition contains increased or decreased amounts of tryptophan. The neutral amino acid composition can be administered alone or concomitantly with a drug which increases or decreases catecholaminergic neurotransmission.
(FR)Le niveau de catecholamine dans les synapses des neurones est augmente de maniere a accroitre l'energie en administrant une composition neutre d'acide amine a un patient humain de maniere a produire une augmentation du niveau cerebral de catecholamine lorsque la composition contient des quantites accrues de tyrosine et/ou de phenylalamine. Des niveaux cerebraux accrus ou reduits de serotonine sont obtenu lorsque la composition d'acide amine contient des quantites accrues ou reduites de tryptophane. La composition neutre d'acide amine peut etre administree seule ou en meme temps qu'une substance accroissant ou reduisant la neurotransmission catecholaminergique.
