Dopamine is a neurohormone that influences reward and motivation. Research has shown that increasing dopamine increases energy and exercise performance, focus, memory, alertness, attention, creativity, confidence, mood, motivation, libido and weight control.

A new study published in the Journal of Science on November 24, 2017 found that dopamine may also play a role in human intelligence. Scientists compared brain samples from chimpanzees, macaque monkeys, and humans. The researchers found that human brains produce far more dopamine than the brains of other primates like apes.

The study was conducted at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut. Dopamine is produced in several parts of the brain including the hypothalamus, neocortex and striatum. The researchers found that the neocortex of humans was much more developed than the same brain region of chimpanzees. Mental arousal, exercise and sexual activity trigger the release of dopamine, which makes people feel good and psyches them up.

The latest research has found a connection between excessive cannabis use and decreased dopamine levels in the brain, which could lead to impaired memory, attention and problem-solving abilities. A study published in Molecular Psychiatry found evidence of a “compromised dopamine system” in heavy pot smokers, with significantly lower dopamine levels for those dependent on cannabis.

One solution to boost dopamine levels, besides going easier on the weed, is the breakthrough product Dopa Rush™ from Advanced Molecular Labs (AML.) Dopa Rush™ is the most potent dopamine-maximizing supplement on the market.
