A “synapse” is essential to neuronal function. It is the junction at which neurons communicate with each other. This communication is achieved using biochemical messengers known as neurotransmitters to precisely coordinate every mental and emotional process. Therefore, effective synthesis and activity of these critical molecules is essential for mental health.

Mental and emotional health depend on the availability of nutrient building blocks and cofactors, such as amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals for the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters. In addition to these essential factors, dietary components, such as antioxidants and phytochemicals, support neurotransmitter dynamics in a generalized manner by modulating enzymes and maintaining healthy reuptake systems.*

The PureSYNAPSE product line was developed in collaboration with James Greenblatt, MD, nationally renowned integrative psychiatrist, to incorporate these nutrient building blocks and cofactors to provide individualized, integrative support for mood, sleep quality, stress, memory and healthy eating behavior.*

Appetite and emotion: Integrative nutritional avenues toward a healthy relationship with food

Eating is the instinctive response to the sensation of hunger. However, in the U.S., hunger is not the primary motive of food consumption. Eating evokes positive emotions due to food-induced changes in brain chemistry. View Slideshow


 

Integrative mental health: New strategies toward emotional wellness

The mind is an exquisitely complex system of cognitive and emotional faculties that orchestrate thought, reasoning, behavior and emotion. The mind and brain speak a language in which neurons function cooperatively in elaborate ensembles. To precisely coordinate every mental and emotional process, neurons must communicate using biochemical messengers known as neurotransmitters. Therefore, effective synthesis and activity of these critical molecules is essential for mental health. View Slideshow


 

Anxiety and depression: It all starts with stress

The body’s stress response can be both helpful and harmful. It gives people the ability to avoid an impending threat, but, when the threat (or perceived threat) persists, stress can put someone at risk for obesity, heart disease, cancer, and a variety of other illnesses. View Slideshow

Appetite and emotion: Integrative nutritional avenues toward a healthy relationship with food

Why do we eat? Eating is the instinctive response to the sensation of hunger. However, in the U.S., hunger is not the primary motive of food consumption. Eating evokes positive emotions due to food-induced changes in brain chemistry. For over 2% of all adults in the U.S. the desire to maintain this emotional reward on an ongoing basis drives consumption of large amounts of food at a single sitting. View Webinar


 

Stress management: The importance of amino acids, phytochemicals and micronutrients

Stress cannot be avoided altogether, the body’s way of responding to stress presents opportunities toward total wellness. According to the National Health Interview Survey, 75% of the general population experiences some form of stress at least every two weeks. The American Psychological Association asserts that lifestyle and dietary approaches to relaxation may support not only emotional well-being, but cardiovascular, immune and metabolic health.

Keys to a restful night: Integrative strategies to optimize sleep onset and efficiency

At least 60 million Americans experience sleeplessness to a point that they seek support. This accounts for an estimated $16 billion in medical costs each year. View Webinar

 
 

Magnesium in integrative psychiatry: Dosage, bioavailability and evidence-based formulations

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. It’s the second most prevalent mineral inside of cells, next to potassium. The body’s highest levels of potassium are found in the brain and heart. Forty percent of our magnesium is in tissues (inside of cells). Because it is so sequestered, identifying deficiency is challenging. View Webinar

Pure SYNAPSE Animation

Mental health depends on the ability of neurons in the brain to exchange information. This communication is mediated by molecules called neurotransmitters which carry signals from one neuron to the next in a space called the synapse. Neurotransmitters are made from dietary amino acids in pathways requiring vitamin and mineral cofactors. Watch Video
