L-Phenylalanine → L-Tyrosine → L-DOPA → Dopamine and mental health.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is in the catecholamine and phenethylamine families. These play a set of important stimulus in your trauma of the brain/body barrier. Their name derives from there chemical structures. They are a biological ammonia neurochemical (not a household bleach though) and its formula constitutes by removing a carboxyl group from a molecule of L-DOPA. It conforms to a precursor (before) towards the brains neurochemistry.
Neurochemical Catecholamines are formulated from the amino acid tyrosine. Catecholamines are water-soluble and are 50%-bound to plasma proteins when they circulate in the blood. Included among catecholamines are Adrenaline, Noradrenaline and dopamine; all of which are produced from phenylalanine (lemon juice) and tyrosine that is in some energy drinks. Tyrosine is also ingested directly from protein rich foods. The release of the hormone production from Adrenaline and Noradrenaline from the Medulla Oblongata leading to the adrenal glands is part of the Fight or Flight response of the Sympathetic nerve. This nerve is a Harmony system as functions in unison with the Parasympathetic nerve.
I feel as mental health people your system may not be fully hydrated with liquids. So, for this reason, the Response/Reward of alertness (Adrenalines) of absorbed digestive juices is dysfunctional. This is so because nutrients cannot be deployed rapidly. That is because of your dehydrated stomach juices that cannot deploy nutrients that require rapid neurochemical responses in the Vagus nerve. These three nerves are all located in the Medulla Oblongata.
The Fight or Flight is localized to the Sympathetic nervous system in the brain. The reason these two hormones cause stressfulness is because the Fight or Flight system of the brain has an imbalance that causes trauma of stress, the trauma of anxiety and traumatic panic due to low levels of Dopamine, Noradrenaline and Adrenaline. Also, this, in turn, causes the Psychological trauma of Noradrenaline ( neurochemical Norepinephrine) overproduction. That, in turn, causes the Sympathetic nerve anxiousness and panic attacks. This is a Parasympathetic nerve Harmony reaction in the brain’s Medulla Oblongata reaction to the Psychological trauma of Adrenaline. Also, within the Psychological trauma of Depression if the Sympathetic nerve is not in Harmony. But in the Norm of Society, it simply causes the feelings of alertness and hyper-stimulated Harmonic Ignorance. It is, also that in the Parasympathetic nervous system of Rest and Digest from the Parasympathetic nerve. This causes the Psychological trauma of sublime associations instead of Noradrenaline of Disassociation to sublime Peripheral sensations that give you emotions. That then forms trauma of paranoia or traumatic anxiousness. A trauma of sublime wordless Buzzing from the crowd of traumatic Psychosocial sounds. The Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nerves keep a Harmony that keeps you in a stable Theory of Mind. Theory of Mind is keeping the self-separate from sublime Psychosocial actions via Ignorance and Fight or Flight. It is also a Harmony of Disassociation and rest and Digest. It is in the concentration centre OF Psychosocial self-awareness of the brain.
