Urinary Neurotransmitter Testing: A Powerful Tool for Assessing Nervous System Function

Bradley Bush, ND

Abstract
Neurotransmitters are traditionally described as brain chemicals that act as messengers in the body, relaying signals between neurons. Neurotransmitter levels in the urine are derived from a variety of sources including the CNS, PNS and the immune system. As such, they’re incredibly powerful. Present throughout the body, neurotransmitters are required for proper brain and body functions and regulate numerous physical and emotional processes, such as mental performance, emotional states and pain response. They are responsible for mood, pain and pleasure sensations and control the quality of sleep, appetite and energy levels, and sex drive. read more…

The Clinical Utility of Urinary Neurotransmitter Analysis: An Overview

Joe Ailts,BS, Kelly Olson, Ph.D

Abstract
Neurotransmitters are recognized as the primary biochemical messengers of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Studies have demonstrated that urinary neurotransmitter measures are reflective of circulating levels as evidenced by renal neurotransmitter clearance mechanisms. Laboratory methodology for the accurate assessment of urinary neurotransmitter levels has been established. Urinary measures are not recognized as a direct reflection of central activity, however definite associations exist. The ability to measure neurotransmitters has led to the generation of scientific literature that demonstrates urinary neurotransmitter measurements have clinical value as representative biomarkers of various neurological, immunological, and endocrinological conditions. read more…
