Neurological health today is constantly being challenged by factors such as increased lifespan, environmental toxicity, and poor diet with resulting nutrient deficiencies. Thorne believes the foundation of neurological health is the health and efficacy of mitochondria – the cellular component that produces the body's energy. So it's crucial that the body's built-in antioxidant system effectively inhibits the free radicals that tend to be produced by the mitochondria. Thorne's Neurochondria formula is comprised of well-researched nutrients that support neurological health. Neurochondria provides antioxidant protection for sensitive neuronal tissue, it enhances neurotransmitter synthesis, optimizes mitochondrial energetics and cell membrane support, and promotes nerve cell function.
Neurochondria was one of the first comprehensive neurological support formulations of its kind in the supplement market. Antioxidant protection for sensitive neuronal tissue is provided by R-lipoic acid and glutathione.* Enhanced neurotransmitter synthesis is supported by acetyl-L-carnitine. Optimal mitochondrial energetics are supported by coenzyme Q10. Cell membranes are supported by phosphatidylserine, and enhanced nerve cell function is supported by benfotiamine, 5-MTHF, and methylcobalamin.
