Brain Chemistry

Neurological health—including brain function, mood, and sleep—is one of the most overlooked areas of general wellness care for healthy aging and emotional well-being. Oxidative stress related to aging and unhealthy lifestyles (e.g., smoking, stress, inactivity, heavy alcohol use, gluten, food allergies) can increase damaging free radical activity in the brain that, among other changes, contributes to a decline in energy output in brain cells. And levels of key hormones and neurotransmitters that contribute to mental and emotional health begin to decline in middle age. Unhealthy lifestyles also affect neurotransmitter balance and hormone metabolism.

• 1 in 4 U.S. adults have complaints related to neurological health.
• Nearly 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. may suffer from occasional sleeplessness.
• 2 in 5 American adults with occasional sleeplessness may have other neurological complaints.
• 1 out of 10 adults in the U.S. may experience poor mood.
Safer Approaches to Target Neurotransmitter Function

Neurotransmitters influence memory, attention, learning, mental focus, perception, sleep cycles, and a range of emotions—from feeling nervous or stressed to relaxed and content. Addressing neurological health through neurotransmitter modulation is the goal of many conventional products, which can have adverse effects.

Dr. Sherman collaborated with a Neuroscience lab to develop a personalized protocol that is tailored to each individual needs, nutritionally support healthy brain function and influence neurotransmitter dynamics associated with cognitive and emotional states.

Other Nutritional Support for Sleep, Mood & Healthy Cognitive Function

Dr. Sherman also recommends a variety of science-based nutraceuticals to complement lifestyle recommendations and safely address underlying factors and existing issues, and promote a lifetime of healthy mental function and well-being.
