Nourish Your Brain, Nourish Your Life
A HOLISTIC NATURAL SOLUTION For Brain and Body Wellness
Supplementation in regards to mental health can have additional benefits and better clinical outcomes. Brain science has exploded in recent years yet much of what we understand about the mind and the brain has yet to be discovered.
Elevate provides overall support both mentally and physically by improving mood, joint health, energy, motivation and promoting a healthy inflammatory response. Additionally, optimizing a biochemical process called methylation which optimizes ALL of your bodies systems. Methylation occurs billions of times every second; it helps repair your DNA on a daily basis; it controls homocysteine (Homocysteine is a naturally occurring unhealthy compound amino produced as part of the body’s methylation process. The level of homocysteine in the plasma is increasingly being recognized as a risk factor for disease and seen as a predictor of potential health problems and can damage blood vessels); it helps recycle molecules needed for detoxification; and it helps maintain mood and keep inflammation in check. A breakdown in methylation also puts you at higher risk for conditions like osteoporosis, diabetes, cervical dysplasia and cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, depression, pediatric cognitive dysfunction ( mood and other behavioral disorders), dementia, and stroke and you may be at higher risk for cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders (ie, Alzheimer’s disease). Optimizing methylation is key to neuroprotection, cardiovascular health, overall health and healthy aging.
The complex metabolism of homocysteine within the body is highly dependent on vitamin derived cofactors, and deficiencies in vitamin B12, folic acid and vitamin B6 are associated with raised homocysteine levels. Other factors thought to raise levels are poor diet, poor lifestyle – especially smoking and high coffee and alcohol intake, some prescription drugs (such as proton pump inhibitors), diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and poor thyroid function. Oral contraceptives (which many women are on) can also deplete vitamin B6 and can affect this process. Elevate is essentially for everyone and anyone can reap it’s tremendous health benefits.
To keep methylation running smoothly you need optimal levels of certain vitamins. This is done by the careful selection and combination of the following ingredients:
SAMe (S-Adenonsyl L-Methionine Disulfate Ptoluensulfonate) is a powerful natural mood elevator and can be used to treat depression or used in those who have low mood. S-adenosylmethionine is made from the amino acid methionine and ATP. SAMe is a methyl donor involved in the making of dozens of important compounds in the body. This nutrient has been available by prescription in Europe for many years as an antidepressant and has been available over the counter in the US since about 1996. It is present in every living cell in the body and plays a decisive role in the functioning of the nervous system. However, levels tend to decline with age, environmental toxins, stress and many other lifestyle and personal factors. SAMe impacts the synthesis and activation of various brain chemicals, including neurotransmitters.
Elevate supplies a uniquely stable source of SAMe with a specilaized enteric coating AND other important synergist building blocks, including specific B vitamins (B6 as pyridoxal-5-phosphate, a special trademarked Folic Acid formulation – Quatrefolic, and 5-MTHF glucosamine salt, and B12 as methylcobalamin), all essential to the biochemical processes in the brain to naturally optimize the synthesis of neurotransmitters (eg. serotonin), and actively form phospholipids that are a component of the neuronal (brain cell) myelin sheaths; contributing to myelination to help support healthy neurons as well as playing a role in the formation of cell receptors and provide collective support for methylation and homocysteine metabolism ALL working together to enhance mood.
SAMe has been shown in studies to improve mood equal to some antidepressants without the side effects.
Vitamin D is actually a pre-hormone that effects thousands of genes and has a key role in making many disease preventing proteins and enzymes.It has anit-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects and enhances the immune system. It has been shown in numerous scientific studies to have a large impact on the regulation of mood. It is difficult to get a sufficient amount from our food and most people don’t get sufficient Vitamin D from their diets and lifestyles with minimal sun exposure.
Magnesium (as Magnesium Glycinate) is the choice for a chelated form of magnesium when dealing with brain health. This is the only form of magnesium that will cross the blood-brain barrier and the glycinate gives it an additive mood effect. It is a powerful detoxifier and stress reducer and is extremely important for your metabolism, enzyme function, energy production, and for balancing nitric oxide in the body. It is a key factor in the synthesis of many important biological reactions in the body.
Organic Turmeric Root Powder is the most potent and powerful anti-inflammatory herbal agent with numerous medicinal benefits. It has demonstrated to modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the body.
Fish Oil Powder rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. They can prevent your body against chronic disease and inflammation and can play a role in promoting a healthy immune system, cardiovascular health, joint health, enhance nutrient absorption, and metabolic function. It also has been found to improve attention, memory and mood. Studies suggest that Omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial in the treatment of mild to moderate depression and play a vitally important role in brain function. Appropriate fish oil can smooth out mood swings, lift mood, and improved cognition.
L-Theanine is derived from tea leaves native to Asia and may play a role in the synthesis of key neuro-transmitters. It helps to relieve stress and improve mood.
