NeuroTone® , provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a unique, comprehensive combination of nutrients which work in concert to maintain and enhance brain and nervous system functions, including those involved in mental alertness, clarity, and memory retention.*
The nutrients in NeuroTone work together in four different capacities to support and protect mental and nervous system function: neurotransmitter synthesis support, enhancement of microcirculation to the brain, nerve cell membrane stabilization and repair, and attenuation of the stress response. Neurotransmitter metabolism support: NeuroTone provides several important nutrients which contribute to the metabolism of key neurotransmitters as precursors, substrate, or stimulators of neurotransmitter production and subsequent release. Optimal neurotransmitter
generation and release is essential for proper communication between nervous system cells, and thus for healthy nervous system function.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine: This acetylated high energy ester of the amino acid L-carnitine contributes its acetyl groups to the production and release of acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter for memory and thought. The carnitine component plays a key role in the transport of fatty acids into the nerve mitochondria where they serve as fuel for cellular energy production.
L-Glutamine: Glutamine, a non-essential amino acid, easily crosses the blood-brain barrier where it can be converted into two important neurotransmitters, the excitatory L-glutamic acid and the major inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma amino butyric acid.
Choline & Lecithin (Phosphatidylcholine): Choline, related to the B vitamins, is the other critical precursor of acetylcholine. Choline is water soluble and is therefore quickly available to participate in
acetylcholine synthesis. Phosphatidylcholine, which can be a source of choline, is fat-soluble; as such, phosphatidylcholine has a longer-lasting, sustained effect on acetylcholine production.
DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol): DMAE, a precursor of choline in the brain, also supports acetylcholine synthesis through its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Research indicates that DMAE supplementation appears to enhance short-term memory and learning speed.
L-Pyroglutamic acid: This amino acid compound stimulates synthesis and release of acetylcholine by boosting the metabolism of specific nerve cells responsible for the release of this important
L-Tyrosine: L-tyrosine, a conditionally-essential amino acid is a direct precursor of norepinephrine and dopamine, two important catecholamines. Norepinephrine is involved in long-term memory and has an energizing, mood-elevating action. Dopamine is the principal neurotransmitter involved in central nervous system control of muscle movement.
NeuroTone tablets may be taken as a nutrition supplement for those wishing to increase their intake of these key neuronutrients.
Two tablets twice daily or as directed by a physician.*
