Pure L-Citrulline 600 mg 100 Capsules

Pure L-Citrulline 600 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS CITRULLINE? Citrulline a non-essential amino acid synthesized in the intestinal tract from Glutamine converts to Arginine in a biochemical process involving Aspartic Acid and two necessary enzymes Ornithine Transcarbamoylase and Argininosuccinate Synthetase. As a precursor to Arginine it has a sparing effect on Arginine enabling an increase in Nitric Oxide production. Nitric Oxide (NO) is very important for endothelial support and cardiovascular health. Citrulline increases energy and stimulates the immune system as well. Citrulline is also an essential component of the Urea Cycle and functions along with Ornithine and Arginine to convert ammonia into Urea. High ammonia levels are extremely toxic and can cause liver damage and neurological impairment. Supplementation with Citrulline has been very beneficial in a genetic disorder called Ornithine Transcarbamoylase (OTC) Deficiency. CITRULLINE AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH Citrulline is a precursor to Arginine which has been shown to increase Nitric Oxide. Since up to 80% of Arginine is utilized in the liver and kidneys only 20 % is available for cardiovascular support. Supplementing with Citrulline produces a sparing effect allowing for additional Arginine production intracellularly for cardiovascular function. Nitric Oxide (NO) the endothelial relaxing factor (EDRF) is a small molecule made from Arginine. It plays an essential role in the regulation of vascular homeostasis modulates cardiac contractility regulates vascular tone and helps in preventing vessel injury and Atherosclerosis. Oxidative stress (free radicals damage) creates injury to endothelial cells. Citrulline converts to Arginine in the vascular cells and thus increases Nitric Oxide production which can help to restore endothelial cell function. The role of Nitric Oxide and Arginine supplementation as well as the role of Citrulline in endothelial function has been well-documented in medical studies. Dr. S. Gross (Cornell U. Med. College) in his publication in the J. Biol. Chem. 1997 suggests the ratio of 3 Arginine to 1 Citrulline for Nitric Oxide production. Those with active Herpes who need cardiovascular support should reverse the Citrulline/Arginine ratio to 3 Citrulline to 1 Arginine since Arginine can stimulate the Herpes and similar viruses. This ratio can help increase Arginine intracellularly. Lysine supplementation may also be advisable in some cases.ORNITHINE TRANSCAR BAMOYLASE (OTC) DEFICIENCY This is a serious genetic Urea Cycle disorder effecting an estimated 1 in 20000 births. Ornithine ranscarbamoylase is the second enzyme in the Urea Cycle and is necessary to produce Citrulline. A deficiency of this enzyme Pauses a lack of Citrulline thus the Urea Cycle cannot function properly and the result is hyperammonemia. It has been linked to SIDS deaths in newborns and Reye's syndrome in children since it is often undiagnosed. Symptoms of the neonatal onset disorder may appear in fir

Pure Taurine 500 mg 100 Capsules

Pure Taurine 500 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS TAURINE? Taurine is a sulfur amino acid that was originally named so since it was first isolated in the bile of an ox (Taurus). Present in high concentrations in mammals it is a conditionally essential amino acid in humans (and in cats) with many functions although it does not enter into protein synthesis. It is necessary in proper neonatal infant and child development and deficiencies in developmental stages may be the cause of epilepsy poor eyesight and other problems. Taurine is found in animal proteins primarily in meat and milk (and especially high in human nursing mother's milk). Because it is so important for human development some baby formulas are enriched with Taurine. It is synthesized from Methionine and Cysteine and Vitamin B-6 is necessary for proper metabolism however infants have a limited capacity to synthesize Taurine. A Pyridoxal 5'Phosphate (active B-6) deficiency decreases the amount synthesized and can cause low levels of Taurine. Zinc is also essential and a zinc deficiency is associated with an increased excretion of Taurine. They also work synergistically as antioxidants to protect cell membranes from free radical/ toxic damage. A deficiency of both may impair eyesight and low levels have been noted in epileptics. Since Taurine is not available in vegetable proteins strict vegetarians-may be low in this important amino acid.TAURINE AND HEART MUSCLE There is a high concentration of Taurine in cardiac muscle tissue and it controls the ionic (calcium/magnesium) flux helps to prevent potassium loss and has a protective function against myocardial injury and heart failure. It is involved with osmoregulation and regulates myocardial contractions. It also has both antiarrhythmic activity and hypotensive properties. Studies show that Taurine administered orally improves patients with congestive heart failure. ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES Taurine protects against damage to cells from toxic compounds including carbon tetrachloride hydrazine and 14-naphthoqunone. Low levels of Taurine may lead to liver damage from exposure to these chemicals. Taurine works along with Zinc in its antioxidant activities helping to trap hydroxy radicals and acting as a radioprotective mechanism in protecting healthy cell membranes from free radical damage.NEUROLOGICAL FUNTIONS Taurine is important for brain development and insufficient amounts in the growth stage may cause neurological problems later on. It is involved in the maintenance of cerebella function acts as a modulator of neuronal excitability and neurotransmitter function and has anticonvulsant properties. EPILEPSYTaurine like GABA provides neuroinhibitory activity to the Central Nervous System. Zinc and Taurine deficiencies have been noted in epileptics as well as low levels of GABA. Increasing Taurine levels may help diminish seizures in Epileptics as well as other seizure disorders. TAURINE AND BILE FUNCTION Taurine is a key component of bile which is n

Pure L-Threonine 500 mg 100 Capsules

Pure L-Threonine 500 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS THREONINE? Threonine is an essential amino acid and must be obtained through food source or supplementation since the body cannot synthesize it. It was the last amino acid identified in 1935 when it was determined to be a necessary component of protein biosynthesis and must be provided in the diet daily. Because of the importance of Threonine it is included in Montiffs All-Basic Gluca-Balance and Super-Sports Amino Acid Formulas. Only a small amount of Threonine is found in grains therefore Vegetarians and those on low protein diets may be deficient in this amino acid which is important for the Kreb's cycle and proper protein balance and function. Deficiencies may also result in irritability. Threonine has lipotropic functions and helps prevent a fatty buildup in the liver. It may have a beneficial effect on fatty livers which result from low protein diets and Methionine and Aspartic Acid have an effect on Threonine's role in this action. Threonine which is a precursor for Glycine is also found in the heart skeletal muscle and central nervous system. By aiding in the production of antibodies it enhances the immune system and it may also be beneficial to those with ALS and MS. THREONINE AND ALS (Amoytrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gherig's Disease) WHAT IS ALS ?Amoytrophic Lateral Scleroses (ALS) is a neurological and fatal disease afecting muscle control and exhibited by progressive symptoms including muscle weakness atrophy cramps spasticity and difficulty in swallowing and speaking. It is also known as Lou Gherig's Disease because this famous N.Y. Yankee first baseman contracted and succumbed to this debilitating neuro-muscular disease in 1941. ALS affects over 4000 people in the US yearly and usually presents in people between the ages of 40 and 70. Death generally occurs 2-4 years after the onset although 10% live over 5 years and 5% live 10 years or longer. In 1993 a faulty gene was identified as the apparent cause in some cases. This was linked to free radical damage causing a degeneration of an enzyme superoxide dismutase. In other cases it may be due to a genetic propensity causing a metabolic defect in the central nervous system affecting the motor neurons. Excessive excitatory amino acids especially aspartate and glutamate have been noted while a decrease in Glycine in the central nervous system has also been measured. Increasing Glycine levels in the CNS has been theorized to be beneficial; however administering Glycine is ineffective since it does not cross into the central nervous system. Since Threonine is a precursor to Glycine and may cross into the CNS supplementation of Threonine may be effective in reducing some symptoms. Pyridoxal 5'Phostphate is necessary for the conversion of Threonine to Glycine. THREONINE AND ITS EFFECT ON ALS Dr. B. Patten at Baylor Univ. College of Med. 1988 administered between 2-4 grams of Threonine to 15 patients daily for 10 months. Improvement occurred

L-Tryptophan 500 mg 60 Capsules

L-Tryptophan 500 mg 60 Capsules. WHAT IS TRYPTOPHAN? Tryptophan an essential amino acid is the precursor to Serotonin which is a necessary neurotransmitter responsible for transmitting nerve impulses in the brain and inducing sleep and tranquility. Serotonin deficiencies which are related to Tryptophan deficiencies are welldocumented in cases of depression and insomnia. Tryptophan also converts to Niacin and Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxal 5Phophate) is necessary for Tryptophan metabolism and conversion to Serotonin. The dietary sources of Tryptophan are cottage cheese milk brown rice peanuts meat turkey and soy products. It is also available in supplemental form. Montiff supplies only the highest quality USP Tryptophan which is now available for professional use. Tryptophan is very important for biochemical balance of the brain and is very helpful for those with sleep deprivation anxiety and mood enhancement due to low Serotonin levels. It also helps to biochemically balance the brain in those whose Serotonin levels are low because of chemical addictions. It has also been effective in appetite control increasing pain tolerance and assisting those with jet lag.TRYPTOPHAN AND SLEEPSleep deprivation is a serious concern for many and low Serotonin levels are often the cause of this problem. Tryptophan converts to Serotonin helping to induce relaxation and naturally enhancing sleep. Two capsules 30 minutes prior to bedtime are recommended on an empty stomach with fruit juice or water. (No protein for 2- hours prior). Tryptophan can also be taken during the night. In extreme problems Tryptophan should be taken early evening and again at bedtime. Vitamin B-6 along with increasing dietary complex carbohydrates are important for proper metabolism and effectiveness. MOOD ENHANCEMENT It has been well documented that low Serotonin levels have been associated with depression. Tryptophan naturally converts to this neurotransmitter. If depression also involves Catecholamine biochemistry then taking Tryptophan in a regimen along with Tyrosine (Neuro-Balance) is recommended. They compete for uptake in the brain and because Tryptophan induces sleep it is recommended that Tryptophan be taken prior to dinner again prior to bedtime. Neuro-Balance should be taken prior to breakfast mid morning as well. PAIN TOLERANCE Increased Serotonin levels have an effect on increasing pain tolerance especially for chronic pain caused from arthritis and lower back problems. In one study Tryptophan was administered at the dose of 1-500mg. capsule every 2 hours (total 6 per day) resulting in a 50% reduction in pain intensity. A high carbohydrate diet is recommended to increase Tryptophan metabolism along with Vitamin B-6. D- Phenylalanine is also recommended in some cases to enhance results and supplementation with Montiff D-Phenyl-Relief is suggested.

All-Basic 677 mg 200 Capsules

All-Basic 677 mg 200 Capsules. WHAT ARE AMINO ACIDS?Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are vital to understanding the Kreb Cycle. They are individual crystalline molecules that make up protein similar to the way letters make up thealphabet. There are 20 basic amino acids that produce over 1600 substances in the body. They make up 3/4ths of the bodys solid material and are found in muscle tissue organs blood and skin. Amino acids also make hormones enzymes and vitamins and are essential for a healthy immune system and proper neurological functions. It is necessary to replace amino acids constantly to nourish the body and repair and regenerate tissue. Amino acids are generally ingested in the food we eat however because of processed foods inadequate diets and food restrictive programs proper balance is rarely achieved and supplementation is advisable. Especially during illness trauma surgery and stress more amino acids are required than can be obtained by food alone. In the chronically ill they can help reverse negative nitrogen balance and help prevent tissue wasting. ALL- BASIC is the recommended choice to help insure optimum balance and provide basic amino acid requirements.SOME BENEFITS OF ALL- BASIC FORMULA ARE: Highest quality L-Crystalline singular amino acids readily available for proper utilization and metabolism. ALPHA LIPOIC ACID a powerful antioxidant included for extra protection against free radicals and cell damage. TAURINE for heart support antioxidant properties and neurological health. ARGININE HCL for immune function and cardiovascular properties. It helps increase Nitric Oxide production which is important for endothelial cells. LYSINE which is low in vegetarian diets may inhibit viruses such as Herpes and EBV and is found in muscle and connective tissue. ALL-BASIC formula has proper Lysine to Arginine balance. L-TYROSINE AND N-ACETYL-L-TYROSINE which crosses the blood brain barrier quickly to elevate catecholamines (which are generally low in depression) and for proper neurological balance. BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS LEUCINE ISOLEUCINE AND VALINE in proper balance for healthy muscle tissue. GLUTAMINE for muscle tissue neurological and gastro-intestinal health supporting the immune system and promoting proper glucogenic function.

Aid in the repair of Mucosa. Helping to maintain muscle mass. Stimulating muscle protein. Helping to improve immune functions. Helping to maintain and protect liver function. i.e. synthesis of glutathione. Helping in the regeneration of the liver. Helping to permit a reduction in the length of hospital stays. Helping in the suppression of hypoglycemia in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM).Gluconeogenesis and Low Blood Sugar: Glutamine is a regulator of protein fatty acid and glycogen metabolism. Alanine and Glutamine are the primary glycogenic amino acids that regulate gluconeogenesis ( carbohydrate/sugar formation) in the liver. Intestinal Health:Two thirds of Glutamine is metabolized and utilized in the mucosal cells of the small intestine which is why it is so important in maintaining proper gastrointestinal function. It promotes intestinal healing and may have beneficial results in patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Immune System:Glutamine is necessary for the function of immunocompetent cells and enhances the immunity of the intestinal mucosa. It is the precursor to Glutathione a powerful antioxidant with detoxification properties which enhances the immune protective system of cells. Immune System:Glutamine is necessary for the function of immunocompetent cells and enhances the immunity of the intestinal mucosa. It is the precursor to Glutathione a powerful antioxidant with detoxification properties which enhances the immune protective system of cells.Glutamine and Neurological Health:Glutamine crosses the blood brain barrier and is the precursor to Glutamate and Glutamic acid which are excitatory neurotransmitters. It is also a precursor for GABA which acts as an inhibitory transmitter which induces a calming effect. Glutamic acid along with Glutamate provides glucose to provide energy for brain cells which requires 75% of the available glucose in the body for its energy source to maintain normal brain metabolism. Improvement of the Metabolic Systems (Stimulation of protein synthesis and improvement of nitrogen balance):Under conditions such as stress fasting surgery traumatic injury or sepsis increased degradation of proteins (mainly skeletal muscle proteins) tips the nitrogen balance in the negative direction. This negative nitrogen balance results in a rapid and marked decrease in muscle concentrations of glutamine: this is a characteristic of such stress conditions. ALaGLn has been reported to be effective in preventing a change in nitrogen metabolism under conditions of stress.Substitution for Alanine:Preventive effect against hypoglycemia in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM)Pharmacotherapy for IDDM (type 1 diabetes mellitus) includes intensive insulin therapy that sometimes causes hypoglycem

No digestion required for direct absorption. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (L-Leucine L-Isoleucine and L-Valine) are included in the proper balance. These amino acids increase protein synthesis and anabolic hormones while decreasing the amount of protein catabolism. They may also increase energy and aid in repair and recovery which is important to the athlete during regular physical training. Glutamine the most abundant amino acid found in muscle tissue increases anabolic activity as well as having beneficial antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties. It helps support muscle hypertrophy effects growth hormone and testosterone levels and is important for neurological and gastro-intestinal health. Arginine (HCL) is important for the athlete in producing GH secretion and stimulates insulin leading to anabolic and anticatabolic effects on skeletal muscle. It helps increase lean body mass and strength and has an important role in nitric oxide production which is important in cardio-vascular health and in preventing hypertension. Taurine is the second most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue after glutamine and it influences the anabolic process through the control of the ionic flux and effects on osmoregulation. It has many other important roles in the body including antioxidant properties balances and stabilizes minerals and has a protective effect on joints. Tyrosine is important for proper chemical balance of the brain and depletions have been associated with depression and memory deficiencies. It is essential for production of catecholamine neurotransmitters producing norepinephrine leading to adrenaline production. It is the precursor for the hormone thyroxine from the thyroid gland and growth hormone (GH) from the pituitary. Glycine is a glycogenic amino acid and is an important constituent of collagen increases GH and is necessary for neurological health.

Pure D-Phenyl Relief 500 mg 50 Capsules

Pure D-Phenyl Relief 500 mg 50 Capsules. WHAT IS D-PHENYLALANINE? D-Phenylalanine is the Dextrorotatory form of the amino acid Phenylalanine. The L-forms (Levorotatory) of amino acids are ones that are bioavailable and are for protein synthesis and regulatory functions. They are like mirror images of one another however D-Phenylalanine is not absorbed into the body but acts as an inhibiting agent to the enzymes that are responsible for the breakdown of endorphins which control pain perception. WHAT ARE ENDORPHINS? Endorphins (and enkephalins) are naturally occurring opiate-like peptides which control pain perception and produce an analgesic effect. Their effects are only of a short duration because of metabolic enzymes especially Carboxypeptidase A which inhibit increased endorphin production. D-Phenylalanine prohibits these enzymes allowing increased endorphin production and prolonged and intensified analgesicaffects.HOW DOES D-PHENYLALANINE EFFECT PAIN? Low levels of endorphins have been noted in those suffering from chronic pain and supplementation with D-Phenlyalanine helped to increase these levels. By prohibiting Carboxypeptidase A from preventing endorphin production the body can continue to increase its own natural pain tolerance mechanism. In studies with chronic pain patients the pain threshold has been enhanced and prolonged. This has been effected with various chronic pain conditions including back pain and Osteoarthritis. D-PHENYLALANINE AND ACUPUNCTURE Pre-administration of D-Phenylalanine enhances the effects of acupuncture on back and other pain. Up to 2 grams 1 hour prior to acupuncture treatment may result in more pain relief and for longer periods of time. DENTAL PAIN Two grams of D-Phenylalanine has been given 1 hour prior to dental extractions increasing the pain threshold and for a prolonged period of time. WHY NOT DLPA (A COMBINATION OF BOTH D-PHENYLALANINE AND LPHENYLALANINE)? D- PHENYLALANINE is the form of Phenylalanine that effects endorphin production. LPhenylalanine has other functions in the body. Concentrations of the pure D-Phenylalanine will assist in pain tolerance to those needing this function. By combining the two the concentration of the effective forrr) of D-Phenylalanine would be less and therefore more would be required to achieve results. The Third World Congress on Pain recommended Phenylalanine and numerous medical studies have confirmed this recommendation. Some suggest that LPhenylalanine will stimulate catecholamine production for those whose pain causes depression. Since L-Phenylalanine ust convert to L-Tyrosine in the body in order to raise neurotransmitter levels it would be best to take Montiff Pure L-Tyrosine or Montiff Neuro-Balance with Tyrosine for this purpose. (In some rare forms of depression some patients have responded to DPhenylalanine and this form might be beneficial to those who are not responding to other therapies.) In addition L-PHENYLALANINE is not recommended for those with elev

Pure L-Methionine 500 mg 30 Capsules

Pure L-Methionine 500 mg 30 Capsules. WHAT IS METHIONINE? L-Methionine an essential amino acid must be obtained in the diet or through supplementation. Some of the food sources of Methionine are meat eggs onions beans soybeans lentils and yogurt. Methionine is the precursor for Cysteine and both are sulfur amino acids which have antioxidant properties to help inactivate free radicals. Methionine also is the precursor for Taurine and since Cysteine is necessary for Glutathione production insufficient Methionine may cause a deficiency of Glutathione. Insufficient Glutathione can result in improper detoxification of the liver and tissue damage including swelling of the mitochondria of lung capillary endothelial cells and considerable damage in the jejunum and colon. Glutathione is also an important antioxidant protecting cells from toxic effects of reactive oxygen compounds and detoxifying free radical and peroxides. Methionine is also important for protein synthesis as well as the synthesis of Carnitine and Creatine and is involved in the production of nucleic acids polyamines choline and catecholamines. METHIONINE AND RELATIONSHIP TO ALCHOHOL- INDUCED FATTY LIVERS Methionine is necessary for the manufacture of Choline and it is the precursor for Cysteine which is essential in Glutathione production. These deficiencies are noted in those with alcohol-induced fatty livers. With excessive alcohol consumption hepatic liver metabolism is extremely impaired often resulting in cirrhosis. By increasing Methionine - Choline and Glutathione also increase which may prevent ethanol-induced fatty livers. Methionine supplementation may also be beneficial to those with other liver abnormalities including Gilberts syndrome. Those with high alcohol consumption may benefit from Methionine supplementation (1 to 2 daily). Montiff Gluca-Balance (with Methionine and other beneficial amino acids) is also be a good choice for Alcoholics (2 - b.id. or t.i.d). Montiff B-Complete or B-Long (1 t.i.d.) is essential for proper metabolism and to prevent harmful Homocysteine levels. Alpha Lipoic Acid (Montiff Alpha Lipoic Acid Plus 1-2 daily) is also recommended to increase Glutathione prevent lipid peroxidation detoxify the ethanol and help maintain or restore hepatic function. The addition of N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine may also be helpful in increasing Glutathione production. BURN AND TRAUMA PATIENTS AND METHIONINE SUPPLEMENTATION Methionine synthesis is altered considerably in trauma and burn injuries and requirements for sulfur amino acids are increased. These patients are also deficient in Carnitine and other amino acids necessary for tissue repair. Although some studies on burn patients have been conducted with IV supplementation of Methionine one study actually demonstrated that more Methionine converted to Cysteine via oral supplementation than by vein.

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 500 mg 90 Capsules

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 500 mg 90 Capsules. WHAT IS CYSTEINE? Cysteine is a conditionally indispensable sulfur amino acid. Although it is formed in the body from Methionine insufficient amounts are synthesized - even in healthy individuals. Severely traumatized patients and specially burn patients require increased amounts of Cysteine for metabolic -nutritional needs. Cysteine is a constituent of Glutathione and Coenzyme A a precursor for Taurine and converts to Cystine in the body which is made up of two Cysteine molecules. Since Cysteine is more reactive than Cystine it is generally more often recommended for biochemical support. Cysteine has antioxidant properties reacting with free radicals and peroxides and chelating with heavy metals. It helps detoxify the liver and protects the liver and brain and possibly the kidneys and bladder as well from the harmful toxic compounds in alcohol drugs cigarette smoke radiation and chemical therapy. (N-Acetyl- LCysteine given to those taking chemotherapy -in doses of 1-2 grams per day- helped prevent against nausea and vomiting). Cysteine part of the Cystine molecule is found in alpha-keratin the main protein in hair skin and nails and it is involved in cartilage and collagen production for healthy joints and youthful skin. Deficiencies have been noted in those with food and chemical sensitivities and when the body is under severe stress with increased catabolic rates. Low levels of Cysteine are often noted in these patients and they have insufficient amounts for Glutathione synthesis. Burn patients and those with sepsis and impaired immune system diseases have increased oxidative damage to cells and Glutathione is necessary to help prevent the free radical damage and help improve tissue repair and immune function. Cysteine supplementation has had some beneficial effects on children who have the rare congenital sun-sensitive disorder called Erythropoietic Porphyria. These individuals have exceptional photosensitivity and have been administered L-Cysteine in place of beta-carotene with positive results. Oral supplementation has been more effective than parental administration in raising Cysteine levels. Because this is a highly reactive compound L-Cysteine should be stored in a dark glass container to protect its integrity. Montiff supplies L-Cysteine in brown glass bottles. Vitamin B-6 is necessary for proper metabolism and Vitamins B-12 and Folic acid are important to prevent the abnormal metabolite Homocysteine from forming; therefore a B complex such as Montiff B-Complete or B-Long is recommended. Cysteine works best when taken with Vitamin E and Selenium. For those requiring broad-spectrum protection against free radical damage Montiff Super Antioxidant Formula is recommended which includes N-Acetyl-LCysteine Vitamin E Selenium Folic acid B-12 plus Taurine Glutathione and other important antioxidants.

N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine 500 mg 90 Capsules. WHAT IS N-ACETYL-L-CARNITINE? N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the ester form of L-Carnitine which is a naturally occurring amino acid metabolized from Lysine and Methione and synthesized in the human brain liver and kidney by the enzyme ALC-transferase. These molecules are part of the biochemical pathways of the cell system and are esterified in the Krebs Cycle. Carnitine is involved in lipid metabolism and helps prevent oxidation of the mitochondria and enhances acetylcholine production. N-Acetyl-LCarnitine supplementation has beneficial effects in the brain neurological function with positive results in myocardial and tissue ischemia. It also helps lower age related cholesterol levels. N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine is involved in preventing age-related effects on the brain protecting neurons from oxidative damage and has helped those with pain due to peripheral neuropathies. Because of the neuroprotective factors studies demonstrate encouraging results in patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia and Alzheimers slowing down the progression of these conditions. It has also been helpful to AIDS patients who have damage to neurons due to this virus. N-ACETYL-L-CARNITINE AND BRAIN NERUOLOGICAL FUNCTION N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine has neuroprotective properties and effects metabolites involved in energy and phospholipid metabolism and may be responsible for a reduction in brain glycolytic flow promoting utilization of alternative energy sources such as lipid substrates or ketone bodies. Supplementation has shown to have a positive effect on age-related changes in the dopaminergic system effecting the striatal dopamine receptors acetylcholine and brain amino acid levels. It may also help prevent progressive loss of myocardial sympathetic nervous function in diabetic patients. Some studies also suggest that N-Acetyl-LCarnitine may also have antidepressant effects.DIMENTIA AND ALZHEIMERSA correlation has been shown between age and N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine since there is a drastic reduction of Carnitine levels in older people. It has antioxidant actions that prevent free radical damage to the neurons thus helping to avert age-related memory problems. Several studies demonstrate that supplementation reduced the progression of senile dementia and Alzheimers especially with early-onset patients under 65 who have rapidly progressing symptoms. The pathology of Alzheimers involves abnormal brain process of energy resulting in brain cell death. N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine acts as a precursor to acetylcholine helping to enhance brain cell energy and restore membranal changes that are due to age factors. NEURODEGERNERATION DUE TO AIDS The AIDS virus tends to destroy neuronal activity in the brain as well as produce peripheral neuropathies with pain. N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine supplementation was effective in helping to prevent membranal deterioration as well as restore the membranal tissue. It also helped reduce painful peripheral neuropathies i

Neuro-Balance 620 mg 60 Capsules

Neuro-Balance 620 mg 60 Capsules. FUNCTIONSDEPRESSION Low levels of Norepinephrine (NE) are associated with depression and have correlated to low levels of Tyrosine in the plasma. Supplementation with Tyrosine has been proven effective in raising the plasma levels of Tyrosine and has been clinically effective in the treatment of depression associated with catecholaminedeficiencies. Many studies substantiate the effectiveness in use of Tyrosine with depressed individuals.STRESS Reduced catecholamine levels have been associated with behavioral changes related to stress. Tyrosine supplementation has resulted in decreased anxiety and improvement in mood. Tyrosine supplementation has also resulted in increased ability to concentrate. Other symptoms of stress such as headache and muscle discomfort have been reduced after supplementation with Tyrosine.COCAINE ADDICTION The chronic use of cocaine reduces Dopamine (DA) and Norepinephrine (NA) metabolites interfering with the catecholamine biochemistry in the brain and causing a chemical imbalance. The withdrawal symptoms including drug craving depression anxiety irritability etc. are associated with chemical imbalances caused by cocaine addiction. Tyrosine levels are measurably low on those addicted to cocaine and supplementation with Tyrosine improves catecholamine biochemistry and assists in decreased symptoms of withdrawal NARCOLEPSY Narcolepsy is a disorder causing a sudden urge to sleep. This disorder is associated with a Dopamine abnormality. The precursor to dopamine is Tyrosine and studies support the benefits of Tyrosine supplementation for this condition. Some research indicates B-6 may reduce positive results in this disorder therefore Montiff Pure Tyrosine may be considered as an alternative to NeuroBalance. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NEURO-BALANCE?
