It's not about willpower, a death wish or social acceptance. It's about a natural chemical in the brain that's "TOO LOW" and throwing you off balance! This chemical in the brain is called, "DOPAMINE." It acts as a messenger between brain cells. And Dopamine is one of the major components of "Parkinson's Disease."
You see, dopamine determines how we move, eat or even behave. Dopamine works with the "REWARD CENTER" of the brain!
Do you ever wonder why people say they enjoy smoking, even though they know it's bad for them?
Well, when you smoke . . . nicotine attaches to receptors in the brain which release the chemical dopamine. This makes you "FEEL GOOD." When dopamine drops back down to a normal level, you want another cigarette to raise this "feel good chemical." This is why it's so hard to quit and why people trying to quit smoking, gain weight. The body and mind are looking for that "FEEL GOOD" to raise dopamine levels and they find it in some foods.
You see, dopamine is the molecule behind all our most sinful behavior and secret cravings. It's love . . . lust . . . adultery . . . motivation . . . attention . . . feminism . . . and addictions such as food . . . gambling . . . smoking . . . alcoholism and your sex life!
It's estimated that 86% of Americans have an imbalance in brain chemical levels. Why is that percentage so high? Well, lifestyle choices play a big role such as chronic stress, poor diet, environmental toxins, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and recreational drugs. Also health conditions such as hormonal imbalance, chronic inflammation, thyroid disease and blood sugar disorders.
So simply said . . . when dopamine levels are low in the brain . . . we self-medicate with addictive substances like caffeine, alcohol, sugar and nicotine to raise it. While others use behavioral actions to raise dopamine levels such as too much shopping, sex, gambling, video games or something thrill seeking.
So how do we correct dopamine levels naturally? Well, the amino acid "TYROSINE" is a major building block of "DOPAMINE."
So if you're a smoker or have "any" addiction . . . the word for the day is "L-TYROSINE" to correct this chemical level.
