Pure Encapsulations DopaPlus 180c.
DopaPlus was developed by Pure Encapsulations in conjunction with Dr. James Greenblatt as part of The Integrative Mental Health Series, a line of products based on scientific findings as well as decades of clinical experience. DopaPlus provides neurotransmitter precursors to help balance dopamine function in the brain for emotional wellness and to enhance daily mental function and sharpness. Also critical to each formulation in this series is the inclusion of a vitamin B6, zinc and Metafolin.
L-5-MTHF cofactor complex. These nutrients are often depleted in individuals due to medications, inadequate diets, and toxic environmental exposures, compromising the ability to properly synthesize neurotransmitters.
When replete, these cofactors enhance neurotransmitter function and play a complementary role in supporting emotional wellness.*
