Your Brain Health is SO Important
Your brain is a fairly essential organ even though there are times lately that I feel many in this country have lost use of many of its functions. neurons communicate via chemicals called neurotransmitters and these chemicals don’t mysteriously appear. They are made by nutrients that need to be consumed. Supporting the production of neurological transmission can greatly effect mood and cognitive function.
With current busy lifestyles, it is easy for an individual to become overwhelmed and stressed with daily tasks. With the lack of relaxation comes deficiencies in necessary neurotransmitters, thus contributing largely to stress and inability to focus.
CereVive is formulated specifically to combat stress and lack of focus. It promotes a positive mental outlook and a relaxed, focused state. It is vital to support healthy levels of neurotransmitters such as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. CereVive includes many amino acid precursors and bioactive nutrients to give support to these essential neurotransmitters. In maintaining healthy levels of these neurotransmitters, one can expect to have more regulation on mood, appetite, memory, focus, energy levels and a healthy sleep cycle.
Why are neurotransmitters so important?
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that regulate mood, memory, the sleep cycle and daily stress. The adequate production of amino acids, vitamins and minerals in the diet are what neurotransmitters depend on. A depletion in neurotransmitters may be an effect from the increase of toxins and medications, along with dietary deficiencies, high levels of stress and genetics. CereVive provides the nutrients required to ultimately optimize neurotransmitter production levels, allowing for mood, memory and sleep regulation.
L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea. This amino acid has been shown to quickly improve stress perception and resilience. The stress-attacking mechanisms of L-theanine have been connected to its ability to increase serotonin and dopamine production in the brain. L-theanine also has the ability to increase alpha brain wave activity, which is critical for increasing attention and promote a sense of relaxation. In a recent placebo study, those who were taking L-theanine were found to have a greater increase in alpha brain wave activity than the placebo group, which allowed for a guardian effect on nerve cells that are overstimulated by the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate.
Orthomolecular states, “Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. GABA provides a calming effect and is a primary component of the body’s stress fighting mechanisms.” PharmaGABA has been shown in published research to promote relaxation in the central nervous system rather than other products having synthetically-produced GABA. Along with L-theanine, GABA increases alpha brain waves according to many studies. The increase in brain waves ultimately improves concentration and a state of relaxation.
Inositol & L-Tyrosine
Inositol is a B vitamin that is important element of cell membrane signaling. As a crucial part of cell membrane signaling, inositol is essential for the release of neurotransmitters from within the nerve cells. A deficiency of inositol can easily affect brain signaling, resulting in inadequate neurotransmitter release, creating irritability, worry and restlessness. L-tyrosine is an amino acid precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, which help with mood, memory and concentration in the body. L-tyrosine helps increase the concentration of tyrosine and reduce competition among similar amino acids.
According to Orthomolecular, “5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid intermediate that is directly converted into the mood-regulating neurotransmitter, serotonin. Maintaining a healthy serotonin level is important for regulating appetite and sleep cycle and for supporting a sense of calmness.” This supplement is produced naturally from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplifolia, and provides an efficient conversion into serotonin for optimal relaxation and rest.
Mucuna pruriens, more commonly referred to as Velvet bean, contains standardized doses of L-dopa. L-dopa is the direct precursor to the neurotransmitter, dopamine, which helps maintain a positive mental outlook and overall motivation. This element is also significant in supporting cognitive function. Adding M. puriens to the body helps support neurotransmitter production.
CereVive also includes essential nutrients that are required for the synthesis of serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters. These nutrients include 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), vitamin B6, vitamin C, zinc and magnesium. 5-MTHF is needed for proper mood regulation and works well together with B12 as a methyl group donor, which maintains neurotransmitter synthesis. Magnesium is a mineral that has shown to significantly calm the nervous system by binding to glutamate receptors, reducing excitatory neurotransmitter activity. The combination of these minerals in CereVive promote an endocrine guardian system, allowing for significant neuroprotection, fixing deficiencies in the body and combating stress.
