TEENS SPEAKING OUT Teens and young adults in search of personal identification about self and other issues that they faced daily in this world but willing to discuss these issues without being discriminated about their way of thinking. Also to assist our youth with Thought Management. What makes some teenagers display angry and aggressive behavior, while others are calm and in control? A growing number of scientists are looking at the same area of the brain that is involved in A.D.D. and A.D.H.D., the delicate limbic system. Research demonstrates alterations of function in the limbic system causes changes in emotional responses as rage, fear, reasoning, and impulse control. The limbic system located deep in the brain's interior is associated with the roots of anxiety, panic, and fear. The limbic system stays in overdrive due to an excessive production of sex hormones. The teen years are a time of continuous changes in brain chemistry. Serotonin is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter, a chemical that transmits electrical impulses in the brain from one neuron to another. If there is a defect in the serotonin processing in the brain, impulsive or violent behavior results. Serotonin enables impulses in the brain to harmonize. Serotonin-producing cells send out over five hundred thousand connections to cells in every part of the brain. Serotonin is the only neurotransmitter that is able to do that. The prefrontal cortex is an organizational part of the brain. If there is an injury in that area one of the outcomes is impulsive, uncontrollable, and violent behavior. For teens, the best serotonin source we use 5-HTP or 5-hydroxtryptophan. The formula, Teen Link, is specially formulated for the overactive teen's brain. Teen Link contains a balance of 5-HTP, GABA, Glutamine, Tyrosine, Taurine, and B6.
