Three or more “yes” answers in any one group indicate a probable deficiency in a particular neurotransmitter due to insufficient quantities of specific amino acids, vitamins and minerals in your diet.

The “O” group relate to a shortage of the opioids neuro-transmitters which may cause you to feel a mild sense of urgency all of the time.

The “G” group relates to the neuro-transmitter GABA.Even a small shortage of this brain chemical will produce a feeling of insecurity, anxiety, fatigue and depression.

The “D” group relates to dopamine.This neuro-transmitter creates the good feelings associated with the enjoyment of beauty or the affection you feel for others.

The “N” group relates to a shortage of norepinephrine.A shortage of this neuro-transmitter will cause feelings of a lack of ambition or drive, depression, or boredom.

The “S” group relate to the neuro-transmitter serotonin.The lack of serotonin causes difficulty in getting to sleep as well as staying asleep.
