Beta Blockers have been traditionally prescribed to treat people with a range of issues from heart conditions to glaucoma, high blood pressure, and even migraines. There have even been a number of famous actors and performers who used these medications to help ease their performance anxiety. However, one of the most novel and interesting uses for Beta Blockers today is an effort to help boost mood.
How Beta Blockers Work?
Very simply put, Beta Blockers are drugs, or medications also known as beta-adrenergic agents. What they do is block or inhibit specific brain chemicals called neurotransmitters from binding to beta receptors on the nerves. These chemicals are primarily Norepinephrine and Epinephrine, along with Adrenaline to a certain degree.
