MindGain provides physiologically relevant levels of neurotransmitter precursors.  Your brain uses chemicals, called neurotransmitters, to send signals between cells.  Your body, using nutrients you take in, makes these neurotransmitters.  In particular, amino acids are critical to neurotransmitter form and function.  Specific amino acids are able to cross the blood brain barrier, where your brain turns them into these signalling molecules.  In the olden days, you would obtain all the nutrients you need from your diet.  Nowadays, the demands we put on our brains far surpasses anything from previous times.
