Pro GAD Enhancer, created by a leading neuro-immune specialist Kendal Stewart, MD, was created to assist patients who have difficulty producing adequate amounts of GABA, an important brain neurotransmitter. GABA plays the principal role of reducing excitability throughout the nervous system, as well as, regulation of muscle relaxation.
Many patients possess a genetic mutation of GAD (Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase), the primary enzyme that creates GABA. A weakness in the GAD enzyme creates an increased amount of Glutamate, the primary excitatory neurotransmitter of the nervous system, and a relative deficiency of GABA. This imbalance creates an overstimulated nervous system.
The 5 key ingredients are designed to assist with:
- Nervousness or Anxiousness*
- Difficulty Falling or Staying Asleep*
- Mood & Muscle Relaxation*
- Improved Sense of Well Being*
Other nutritional cofactors are essential to the success of Pro GAD Enhancer.
L-Glycine is an essential amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.*
Kava Kava (Piper methysticum) is a natural herb that helps to reduce nervousness and stress symptoms and has been shown to promote restful sleep, can curb cravings, improve digestive health, and reduce stress on the nervous system. Kava Kava contains kavalactones, that can decrease stress and have been shown to potentially reduce headaches as well as promote relaxation.*
Another important ingredient in our Pro GAD Enhancer is L-Theanine. L-theanine is an uncommon amino acid, primarily found in the green tea plant (Camellia sinensis), plus two other Camellia species. As L-theanine is concentrated in the leaves, it is present in preparations of green tea consumed as a beverage around the world. Therapeutically, L-theanine has been used as a natural relaxant, but it also has potential in easing nervousness and mood support.*
Magnesium in general is essential for the survival of our cells but takes on further importance in the age of toxicity where our bodies are being bombarded on a daily basis with heavy metals. Glutathione requires magnesium for its synthesis. Without the cleaning of glutathione (magnesium) cells may begin to decay as filth and heavy metals accumulate.*
