Thanks to a wonderful friend's positive experience with her own ASD son, today we are starting two new supplements. The following information is from the Metagenics website.
Lumina™ - from Metagenics , is designed to support healthy mental function and relaxation—issues related to proper focus, attention, learning, and memory—through modulating the metabolism of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and norepinephrine.
Dopamine, GABA, and norepinephrine metabolism are implicated in brain functions such as focus, attention, motivation, learning, and memory.
Provides theanine and DHA, which preliminary research suggests may positively influence the metabolism of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, GABA, and norepinephrine.
Ceralin® Forte, also from Metagenics , is formulated to provide well-rounded support for brain and nerve protection, addressing multiple pathways involved in neurological health.
Supports healthy cognitive function, possible by enhancing cellular energy dynamics.
Provides potent antioxidant protection for the central nervous system.
Supports a healthy life cycle of neurons and other cells.
May protect the blood-brain barrier and nerve cells from oxidative stress.
Helps maintain overall neurological health by supporting healthy mitochondrial function, methylation, homocysteine metabolism, and circulatory function.
