- Provides enhanced support for emotional balance and mood stability
- Includes the serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitter precursors 5-HTP and DL-phenylalanine to promote the production of both serotonin and dopamine
- Contains the synergistic cofactors vitamin B6, Metafolin® L-5MTHF and zinc to support nutrient metabolism and maintain good health; L-5MTHF is the form of folate that easily crosses the blood-brain barrier
- Maintains antioxidant defence with curcumin and quercetin
NeuroPure was developed by Pure Encapsulations® in conjunction with Dr. James Greenblatt as part of PureSYNAPSE™, a line of products based on scientific findings as well as decades of clinical experience. NeuroPure provides neurotransmitter precursors to support healthy mood balance by promoting serotonin and dopamine production and function. Emerging research has also revealed the role that 5-HTP plays in helping to reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches when taken as a prophylactic. Quercetin and curcumin provide antioxidant defence to further support optimal health. 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 metabolize nutrients. Along with zinc, vitamin B6 is a cofactor in amino acid metabolism, including the metabolism of 5-HTP into serotonin and DL-phenylalanine into dopamine.
