Dopamine deficiency and low serotonin levels are some of the most commone neurotransmiter imbalances.
When attempting to balance neurotransmitter levels by supplementing with amino acids and nutrient cofactors there are many factors that can affect how long this can take. The imbalances were likely created over an extended time of influence from stress, poor diet, lifestyle, and other factors. A natural supplementation therapy can be very effective, but can also take time.

- Collect a midstream specimen of urine in the collection cup.
- Use the pipette to transfer urine from the collection cup to the sample tube. Fill the tube to the “10 ml” mark, almost full. A small cotton ball is located in the sample tube to preserve the specimen. DO NOT remove this preservative…leave the preservative in the sample tube.
- Close tube tightly to ensure a good seal. Gently rock the tube back and forth for 3 to 4 seconds to mix urine with the preservative.
- Write your name, time and date on the sample label.
- Peel the back of the sample label and stick it on the sample tube.
- Follow “SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS” to ship your sample to the Lab.
