Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP) for Biotoxin Illness

How Taurine Affects Anxiety and Adrenaline

I wrote here about how taurine affects overexcitable membranes in general, and it essentially boils down to two interrelated things: the NMDA receptor (which is stimulated by the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, and inhibited by calming neurotransmitters glycine and GABA), and calcium conduction (the flow of which occurs when the NMDA receptor [...]
