Neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that determine our behaviour, mood and biological responses. Think of neurotransmitters as walkie-talkies sending instructions from one part of the body to another.
We have a lot of these brain chemicals, but the most common ones are the neurotransmitters that you will have read about or seen on social media such as dopamine and serotonin. What is interesting is some of these neurotransmitters are created in our gut, and a few of them will at some point convert into a different neurotransmitter. How cool is that!
Discover more about how these neurotransmitters impact our mental wellbeing and how our lifestyle affects them by taking a look below.

The lifestyle we lead, and the choices we make, all influence the state of our mental wellbeing. The first point of call for improving mental health should be to look at our lifestyle choices, such as food, sleep, relationships and purpose for example.
