Lowering Glutamate | Mitochondrial Supports

Mitochondrial Supports CoQ10, L-Carnitine, ALA– “Increasing energy production, using coenzyme Q-10,, L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid, and other metabolic precursors and substrates can significantly reduce glutamate excitotoxic damage”  http://www.encognitive.com/…/A%20POSSIBLE%20CENTRAL… Why Is This Important? Glutamate is also the most abundant neurotransmitter, responsible for regulating over 50% of the nervous system. It is classified as an excitatory neurotransmitter, which means it excites or stimulates nerve cells located throughout the nervous system. Glutamate also has the ability to regulate other neurotransmitters, dopamine, serotonin and GABA are great examples. When glutamate is in excess it is extremely toxic [...]

Lowering Glutamate | Selenium

Selenium- One brazil nut per day should give you the daily recommended amount of selenium needed. “These results suggest that glutamate targets the mitochondria and selenium supplementation within physiological concentration is capable of preventing the detrimental effects of glutamate on the mitochondria” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3378533/42 Why Is This Important?

Lowering Glutamate | Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ)

Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ)- Widely found in bacteria and foods such as spinach, celery, parsley, kiwi papaya and beans. It is known to stimulate the production and efficiency of mitochondria, protects against free radicals and reduces nitric oxide production. Defiencies in PQQ are associated with immune deficiency, dry skin, infertility and low overall fitness. “our results indicated that PQQ could protect primary cultured hippocampal neurons against glutamate-induced cell damage by scavenging ROS, reducing Ca2+ influx, and caspase-3 activity, and suggested that PQQ-activated PI3K/Akt signaling might be responsible for its neuroprotective action through modulation of glutamate-induced imbalance between Bcl-2 [...]
