Acetylcholine is known as the inhibitory #Neurotransmitter System
The first #neurotransmitter to be discovered in 1921. Its’ importance lies in the fact that it stimulates muscles to contract. This NT alters heart muscle contractions and impacts muscle function throughout the body. It’s also strategic in vocalizations/ #speech and #swallowing . Acetylcholine is critical for #attention , #alertness , and #memory . People with #Alzheimer’s , #Parkinson’s , #ALS , and #Myasthenia Gravis have substantial #dysfunction within acetylcholine activity or breakdown.

Low levels are associated with #depression , and a lack of #concentration & #emotion as well as poor #muscle tone, #forgetfulness , and poor #sleep “light sleepers ... ..more
