Brain Balance is a unique formula designed to ensure the proper levels and balance of the neurotransmitters in the brain- resulting in reduced anxiety, elevated mood, and improved focus and concentration.
The brain is a chemical factory that makes chemical messengers called neurotransmitters that regulate mood 24 hours a day. Neurotransmitters relay messages from one neuron to another, and each one has a different effect on our mood and behavior.
Our neurotransmitters are either excitatory, causing a neuron to send a signal, or inhibitory, preventing a signal from being sent. The excitatory system sends signals to speed things up, get things going. The inhibitory system helps to slow things down or stops signals from continuing.
If the levels of excitatory neurotransmitters get too high, you can feel out of control, overexcited, racy, or anxious. If inhibitory neurotransmitter levels are too high, important signals may be stopped. This can lead to symptoms of depression, fatigue, or compulsive behaviors.
Taken as a whole, neurotransmitter imbalances can cause an endless list of health challenges, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings, insomnia, ADD/ADHD, problems with memory and focus, irritable bowel syndrome, hormone dysfunction, fibromyalgia, obsessions, compulsions, adrenal dysfunction, chronic pain, migraine headaches, and even early death.
Once symptoms emerge, correcting imbalances is not as simple as eating the right foods. It requires specialized supplementation at higher levels than can be obtained from your diet.
Most antidepressant medications and herbs, like St. Johns Wort, move neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine out of the pre-synaptic neuron and into the synapse. It's important to understand that they do not add any molecules of serotonin to the brain's supply. Scientific studies have shown that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's) must have adequate supplies of serotonin in order for them to be effective. The same is true for herbs like St.John's Wort. If you're deficient to begin with you may not have a good response with those types of treatment.
But Brain Balance gives your brain the raw materials it needs to actually make more serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and GABA.
Brain Balance uses researched clinically proven ingredients that increase and balance neurotransmitters in the brain.
The Brain Balance formula contains therapeutic dosages of the precursors that make serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine in the brain. Other products may contain similar ingredients but at concentrations far too low to be effective. Brain Balance contains 75mg of 5-HTP per capsule, much more than the other leading brands. You would need to take many more capsules of other brands, at a much higher cost, to receive the benefits you get from the Brain Balance formula.
Nutritional support for depression includes two critical components: 1) Supplementation with specific amino acids that are precursors to neurotransmitters, and 2) Supportive treatment with vitamins, minerals, and dietary modifications.
Brain Balance's unique formula has ingredients that not only increase levels of the commonly deficient neurotransmitters, but also supports GABA, which helps calm the system by reducing excessive neurotransmitter activity.
The Brain Balance formula supplies the amino acids and vitamin cofactors critical to the production of neurotransmitters in the brain, specifically those involved in mood regulation and balancing of the inhibitory and excitatory system.
Studies have shown that the ingredients in Brain Balance are safe and effective. Our patient feedback indicates that most experience symptom reduction within weeks. When taken as directed side effects are extremely rare. The GMP certified manufacturing facility utilizes the highest quality USP pharmaceutical grade raw materials.
Because Brain Balance doesn't contain hyperforin or hypericum (St. John's Wort) there is NO interaction with birth control pills or other prescription medications that are documented to interact with the herb.
Brain Balance may boost the effectiveness of certain antidepressant medication- such as SSRI's- by increasing neurotransmitter supplies, but this should be done only under the guidance of a health practitioner. Brain Balance should not be taken if you are taking an MAO inhibitor like Marplan, Parnate, or Nardil. If you are pregnant or nursing consult your health practitioner before taking this or any medications or supplements.
Side effects are generally mild, and may include nausea, vomiting, or GI upset, and typically subside with continued product use. Side effects may also reduce when doses are lowered or taken with food.
Brain Balance was developed by Valerie Balandra ARNP, a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner and holistic health practitioner. Valerie has been practicing in the field of psychiatric nursing for over twenty years. Her areas of expertise are psychopharmacology, and natural treatments for depression and adrenal fatigue, based on a proven process of neurotransmitter testing and targeted amino acid therapy to identify and treat neurotransmitter imbalances. She has written numerous articles and appeared on national radio health programs, speaking on natural cures for depression and anxiety.
