D5’s balanced nutrient formula supports serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine production. Serotonin is associated with mood, appetite, sleep, memory, learning, and temperature regulation. Dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (the catecholamines) are associated with control of movement, balance, motivation, focus, addiction and the drive for reward.
D5 has all the same nutrients found in NeuroReplete, as well as the addition of Mucuna 40%, a natural source of L-dopa. D5 is recommended when a healthcare profession determines that a patient would benefit from the administration of Mucuna 40%. NeuroReplete is the more commonly selected product. Providers will often select NeuroReplete and add Mucuna 40%, if they desire Mucuna support. NeuroReplete and D5 should not be used together.
D5’s clinically researched formula addresses a critical area of neurotransmitter health that many formulas have overlooked — the need for balanced amino acid precursor administration. D5’s nutrients have been selected as the result of clinical research focusing on brain, gut and overall health that has continued over the past 20 years. D5’s balanced nutrient formula supports serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine production in proper ratio. Serotonin is associated with mood, appetite, sleep, memory, learning, and temperature regulation. Dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (the catecholamines) are associated with control of movement, balance, motivation, focus, addiction and the drive for reward.
CysReplete contains cysteine, which is an excellent source of sulfur. Sulfur is essential for the metabolism of 43 major chemical pathways and over 100 minor pathways. This includes glutathione, which is a crucial component of toxin maintenance.
CysReplete contains cysteine, along with selenium and folic acid. Cysteine supports immune health, normal toxin maintenance, normal glutathione levels, many metabolic pathways, as well as protein synthesis and structure. Selenium is important when using cysteine supplementation because it supports neuron health by interfering with the undesirable binding of methylmercury that can occur when supplementing with cysteine. This is a fact that many cysteine supplements have overlooked.
CysReplete is recommended when using NeuroReplete and D5 because both products utilize sulfur when supporting normal neurotransmitter levels. The body does not store excess sulfur. Therefore, without replenishing, sulfur depletion can occur. The impact of sulfur depletion may not be immediately evident. The loss of adequate sulfur may show subtle changes in immune health, toxin maintenance, metabolic function and protein health that slowly decreases overall health.
