Get out your eggs! In this article, we will explore an important neurotransmitter in the body and brain called acetylcholine (ACh). While also functioning as a classical neuromodulator, ACh is similar to norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, in that it cannot cross the blood-brain barrier.

In today’s article, we are going to cover the “fight or flight” (or “oh sh*t there’s a bear”) catecholamine and neurotransmitter known as norepinephrine (NE). As with gamma-aminobutyric acid (or GABA), serotonin, and dopamine, norepinephrine can’t cross the blood-brain barrier.

In today’s article, we are going to explore the well-known, indispensable, and now kind of infamous neurotransmitter dopamine. As with gamma-aminobutyric acid (or GABA) and serotonin, dopamine can’t cross the blood-brain barrier. 

Before starting Troscriptions in 2019, we did a huge amount of research into the history of nootropics, the many varieties out there, and we tried many (many!) along the way.

In today’s article, we are going to explore one of the most well-known and important neurotransmitters – serotonin. As with gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, serotonin can’t cross the blood-brain barrier to do its work.
Flashy news articles alert! Did you hear that biohackers and optimal performers like Ben Greenfield, the Biohacker Babes (our friends Lauren and Renee), and many others from the Tro Nation are using “fish tank cleaner” to reverse aging and optimize their mitochondria?

One of the most frequently asked questions we get at Troscriptions is why we use Polyethylene Glycol (PEG, for short) as the base/suspension media for our formulas. 

There are a lot of very smart people who use our products (who are even smarter after they use our products!) so today, TroNation, let’s lay it all out on the table and allay your concern(s). After all, knowledge is (blue and orange) power.

The ECS serves a major role regulating and balancing many processes in the body including the immune response, communication between cells, appetite, metabolism, memory, hormonal response, your dance moves (just kidding), and much more.
