Proxan 60 capsules
Proxan is a nutritional formula specifically designed to restore healthy, normal neurotransmitter balance within the central nervous system (CNS). Each ingredient has been carefully selected for its beneficial effects on moods and mood regulation. For example, 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) have unique properties that assist with the management of anxiety, irritability and mood dysregulation. While the B group vitamins, minerals and dl-Phenylalanine further enhance the capacity of this unique formula to promote healthy neurological function and support normal, healthy biosynthesis of neurotransmitters.
Each capsule contains:
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) 100 mg
S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) 100 mg
dl-Phenylalanine 100 mg
Pyridoxal 5-phosphate (activated vitamin B6) 5 mg
Cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) 400 µg
Folic acid 400 µg
Potassium phosphate – monobasic 50 mg
equivalent to elemental potassium 14.4 mg
Magnesium phosphate – tribasic 50 mg
equivalent to elemental magnesium 10.3 mg
Take 1 capsule daily on an empty stomach with juice or water, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
May improve mood regulation: Therapeutic administration of 5-HTP has been shown to be effective in managing alterations in mood, binge eating and insomnia, and a number of clinical trials with parenteral or oral SAMe have shown that it is superior to placebo and at least as effective as certain prescription medications in alleviating mood disorders. Finally, d-Phenylalanine inhibits the breakdown of endorphins, thereby assisting with mood elevation and pain tolerance.
Supports normal, healthy biosynthesis of neurotransmitters: In the CNS, serotonin levels have been implicated in the regulation of sleep, depression, anxiety, aggression and appetite. 5-HTP is an intermediate metabolite in the biosynthesis of serotonin and melatonin that bypasses the rate-limiting enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, and is thus an efficient way to support healthy serotonin production in the brain; and SAMe is a methyl donor involved in the synthesis of various neurotransmitters in the brain – including serotonin. Finally, l-Phenylalanine is the precursor of adrenalin, noradrenalin and dopamine, and may therefore help patients cope with stress more effectively.
May help maintain healthy neurological function: Homocysteine has been implicated in the aetiology of a number of neurological and neurodegenerative disorders, fortunately the B6, B12 and folate in Proxan can help to promote healthy homocysteine levels and therefore support healthy neurological function.
WARNING: Individuals who are using prescription antidepressants or Hypericum, or who suffer from bipolar disorder, should not use this product unless under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
