According to Neurology Today, “neurological diseases are the world’s largest cause of disability-adjusted life years, or years of healthy life lost due to death or disability¹.” The term “neurological disease” can have a multitude of different meanings from:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
- Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
- Cerebral Palsy
- Parkinson’s disease
However, the basic description of a neurological disorder is generally an illness involving the central nervous system (brain, spine and nerves). People suffering from these conditions may experience communication issues, memory lapses, or have trouble walking.
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH) theorized that environmental factors “are suspected of playing a large role in both the onset and severity²” of these conditions along with the added factors of age and DNA. At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we have discovered a connection between various patients who suffer from the above symptoms and a buildup of environmental toxins and inflammation. Therefore, many of our treatments for neurological conditions include eliminating all of the toxins, providing natural diet plans, and authorizing a certain peptide called Rg3.
What is Rg3 Peptide?
When the body is depleted in certain proteins, this has a drastic effect on how the body operates. A peptide contains proteins that release amino acids to augment specific bodily functions. Also known as Synapsin, Rg3 is a peptide administered through the nasal cavity. It is a powerful blend of three different natural ingredients with the purpose of supporting brain health. These ingredients include:
- Rg3: extracted from the root of ginseng, this ingredient contains properties that provide support to nerve cells and their functions.
- Nicotinamide-Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD): helps to boost cell energy metabolism in order to increase energy within the cells. Additionally, it also serves as an essential substrate for cellular processes such as ATP production, DNA repair, and immunological functions.
- Methylcobalamin: as a form of Vitamin B12, this ingredient stimulates serotonin production, protects chromosomes and nucleic acid in all living cells, enhances red blood cell formation, protects nerve and brain cells, boosts immune functions, and supports energy levels in patients.
The Benefits of Peptide Rg3
Rg3 has an assortment of assets to the neurological system and brain health. Frequent reported use of Synapsin has demonstrated major decreases in inflammation and microglial activation. The peptide is capable of regulating neprilysin gene expression (NEP), the enzyme catalyst that accumulates the Abeta-amyloid peptide, causing a buildup of amyloid plaque. This buildup eventually can lead to Alzheimer’s, migraines, multiple sclerosis, strokes, or back trauma. Additionally, Rg3 has proven positive results in regulating the formation of inflammatory cytokines to prevent inflammation from spreading throughout the nervous system. LifeWorks Wellness Center normally recommends this peptide to treat those with:
- Autoimmune disease
- Chronic fatigue
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Brain fog
Relieving Neurological Conditions at LifeWorks
The cause of neurological conditions has been widely studied since the 18th century even before these illnesses became more widespread. English physiologist Stephen Hales and Scottish physiologist, Robert Whytt studied nerve functions in animals before more knowledge about the causes of aphasia, epilepsy, and motor problems were discovered. As technology and machinery continued to establish much of the American economy, it was then that doctors began to notice a more frequent pattern of inflammation and cognitive changes among people. Today, these issues are still prevalent and are only increasing as time moves forward.
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we strive to help those suffering with neurological conditions by offering natural remedies to eliminate toxicity in the body and providing peptides that focus on boosting cognitive functions.
