Clinical study confirms NADH has a direct, positive impact on rebuilding brain neurotransmitters. Production of the neurotransmitter dopamine is increased six-fold when taking NADH supplements.
The study's results showed that adding NADH yields a six-fold increase in the production of the neurotransmitter dopamine. It was also found coenzyme NADH stimulates the production of many different brain neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine or noradrenaline, and serotonin.
Benefits of dopamine
NADH stimulates dopamine production. Medical science has proven that increased dopamine production has a positive effect on the following brain functions: thinking, cognitive functions (like memory & decision making), sex drive, mood, drive, strength, coordination, movement, mobility and much more.
Medical science has proven dopamine has a positive impact on growth hormone secretion. Growth hormone secretion is regarded as the key factor for the regeneration of cells and tissue. Increased dopamine production enhances the body's ability to repair or replace damage and wounded cells.
Dopamine has been proven to reduce prolactin secretion, which is the cause of appetite. The higher the dopamine levels in the blood, the lower the appetite. It is believed that higher or normalized dopamine blood levels reduces "binge" eating.

Definition of neurotransmitter:
Neurotransmitters are stored in the end of the nerve cell's bulbous (also called axon). When an electrical impulse traveling along the nerve reaches the axon, a neurotransmitter is released. It travels across the synapse, either prompting or inhibiting continued impulses. There are more than 300 known neurotransmitters.

Norepinephrine, also known as noradrenaline mediates chemical communication in the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system functions in response to short-term stress and anxiety (the fight or flight response). Medical science has proven that norepinephrine mediates the heart rate, blood pressure, the rate of glycogen (glucose) conversion for energy, as well as and other physical benefits.
For our readers, who want it
in scientific terms Dopamine's protection against brain damage:
The neurotransmitter dopamine undergoes what is called auto-oxidation. This process forms cytotoxic agents that may damage very sensitive areas in the basal brain. Research has found auto-oxidation occurs significantly more often in older individuals. A dopamine auto-oxidation inhibiting substance is useful in reducing damage to certain areas within the brain, by retarding cell death and tissue degeneration.
An elevated NADH level results in a significant elevation of pyridine dinucleotide levels in the brain. The brain has an active uptake mechanism for the accumulation of nicotinamide through the choroid plexus, indicating this is an important functional role for brain metabolism and oxidative defense. Taken all these factors into account one can conclude that NADH has a protective affect on the brain.
