The Honey Bees
Bee pollen and amino acid replenishment therapy.
|Symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalances include:
Bee pollen is a natural formula of key "neuro-nutrients" to supply your brain with the raw materials it requires for normal neurotransmitter production. With your neurotransmitter production restored to normal levels, your cravings will be fewer and weaker, you will think more clearly, and you will feel more positive and focused. You will sleep better and feel more at peace and relaxed.

|Neurotransmitter||Function||Drugs that Affect Neurotransmitters||Neurotransmitter
Deficiencies Result In
|Norepinephrine||Arousal, energy, drive||Cocaine, speed, caffeine, tobacco||Lack of drive, depression, lack of energy||L-phenylalanine|
|GABA||Staying calm, relaxation, focus||Valium, alcohol, marijuana, tobacco||Free-floating anxiety, fearfulness, insecurity, can't relax or sleep, unexplained panic||L-glutamine|
|Endorphins||Psychological / physical pain relief, pleasure, reward, good / loving feelings toward others||Heroin, marijuana, alcohol, sugar, tobacco||Overly sensitive, feelings of incompleteness, anhedonia (inability to experience pleasure normally), world lacks color, inability to love||dL-phenylalanine|
|Serotonin||Emotional stability, pain tolerance, self-confidence||Sugar, marijuana, ecstasy, tobacco||Depression, obsession, worry, low self-esteem, sleep problems, hunger, irritability||Increases L-Tryptophan availability|
Tests with each ingredient separately have shown the physical and economic unfeasibility of taking amino acid supplements individually.

Research over the last two decades has generated insight into the relationship between substance abuse or addictive behavior and brain chemistry imbalance. This has implications for treatment and recovery from addictions.
Thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are a function of neurochemical processes in the brain. One could say that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors ARE neurochemical processes.
Brain cells (neurons) manufacture and release chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. These chemicals allow communication between one nerve cell and the next, which in turn make possible brain function. Stresses related to addictions, lifestyle choices, poor diets, genetic makeup, or external circumstances, interfere with neurotransmitter output. The result is chemical imbalance in the brain.
Ingestion of alcohol, sugary foods, nicotine, cocaine, and many other abusable substances produces emotional (mood-altering) effects such as changes in feelings of depression, fear, anxiety, emotional pain, or frustration. These effects are caused by neurochemical processes including over-production of "feel good" neurotransmitter molecules such as dopamine and serotonin.
The brain synthesizes these molecules from certain amino acids known as neurotransmitter percursors, derived from food and supplied through the bloodstream. The most important of these "neurotransmitter percursors" are phenylalanine, glutamine, tryosine and tryptophan. A hallmark of drug addiction is depletion of these percursor molecules to the point where neurotransmitter production is impaired. When dopamine and serotonin levels drop below normal levels, unpleasant feelings can increase, commencing craving for substances or activities to stimulate further neurotransmitter production.
There is considerable evidence that natural neuro-nutrient supplements, containing key amino acids, are promising in the treatment of addicts. Adding concentrated amino acids to the diet can help restore normal levels of neurotransmitter production and ultimately bring about feelings of comfort and well-being that are not drug-dependent. Nature's most perfect food is a tool for restoring vital balance in brain chemistry and useful in treating drug addiction.
For best results amino acids must be taken both in proper dosages and ratios to one another. It is also important that they be of the correct molecular orientation (left, right) in order to properly match nerve cell receptor sites.
