NeuroZone™ Nutrition is a highly sought after method of delivering high potency nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in therapeutic (clinically effective) doses directly into the blood stream.
The ability to provide 100 percent absorption of critical nutrients can often provide superior health benefits for illness, and performance and cognitive enhancement for athletes and executives respectively. Anecdotal and clinical experience has also shown the ability of this type of nutrient delivery to accelerate the benefits and progress of Neurofeedback.
How Does it Work?
High potency nutrients – including antioxidants such as high dose vitamin C, glutathione, and heavy metal (lead, mercury) detoxifying agents such as EDTA – have the ability to dramatically enhance the microcirculation or blood flow to the smallest of blood vessels. This improves the production and balance of neurotransmitters in the brain, and overall health and function of critical organs such as the kidneys.
NeuroZone™ Nutrition for Athletes
By reducing free-radical stress and improving cellular energy production, NeuroZone™ Nutrition in athletes can result in improved endurance and strength, and reduced recovery times after high-intensity training or sports activities. Executives use customized nutritional formulations to help reduce stress, increase focus and memory, and overall workplace performance, giving them a leg up on the competition.
NeuroZone™ Nutrition for Children
Children with ADHD, autism spectrum disorders and the like can greatly benefit from these antioxidants such as glutathione. Published literature shows that this can dramatically enhance energy production, boost the immune system, increase excretion of toxins, and in our clinical experience, improves mood instability, and school performance – especially when combined with Neurofeedback.
Other nutrient formulations and antioxidants, which include Co Q 10, vitamin C, unique forms of B-12, and glutathione have shown the ability to accelerate the recovery and healing from stroke, traumatic brain injury and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s.
The Brain/Gut Connection
The brain and gut are connected and consistently share information with each other. For example, when you are in a frightening situation, all digestion ceases to continue. That is the brain signaling the digestive system to halt and stand by while we are in danger. This saves energy and directs crucial energy to help the brain make quick and decisive choices. Constant signaling from the brain to other organs like the pancreas, liver, spleen, stomach etc. This system is called the Enteric Nervous System.
This connection goes far deeper and into chemicals in the body called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters control our mood, energy, and metabolism. The gut (intestines, small and large) produce over 30 neurotransmitters and contain over 50% of the serotonin found in the body. Serotonin is a calming neurotransmitter. This makes it very easy to see that if your body does not have gut balance, the production and distribution of key neurotransmitters does not take place.
These deficiencies are closely linked to Autism, ADD/ ADHD, as well as developmental and behavioral problems. These can result in increased inflammation and prevent cells from developing the proper connections. It can also lead to further neurotransmitter interference.
The lack of Zinc and Selenium are contributors to achieving optimal levels to help protect from mercury damage as well as the elimination of mercury. The lack of Methionine can also impair the brain and worsen damage caused by heavy metal exposure. 51% of children on the Autism spectrum have a Methionine deficiency. Low Cysteine levels lead to low Glutathione, a crucial antioxidant for maintaining a healthy brain.
Essential Fatty Acids
Deficiencies of two important omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA from cold water fish are common in children with behavioral disturbances. Sadly most fish are contaminated with mercury so using the wild caught salmon, krill, and sardines are best. These fatty acids are shown to help protect the brain especially after a trauma. Having higher levels of the EPA-DHA fats significantly improves behavior, inattention, hyperactivity, oppositional defiance and conduct disorder.
