Why Theramine?Theramine is an effective and safe way to manage pain syndromes. Theramine is not an NSAID or an opiate. There have been no reported GI bleeds or cardiac events associated with Theramine. Theramine is a non-addictive, and safe therapeutic option for patients with pain syndromes.How Does Theramine Help?Theramine promotes the production of serotonin, GABA, serine and acetylcholine. These important neurotransmitters are responsible for decreasing pain and inflammation. Theramine addresses the increased amino acid requirements of pain syndroms safely and effectively. There have been two double blind clinical trials supporting the efficacy of Theramine for chronic pain.
Recommended DosingIt is recommended that two (2) capsules of Theramine be taken twice daily. Your doctor will determine the most appropriate dose for your condition.Patient must be under the ongoing supervision of a physician when taking Theramine. Primary Ingredients Theramine consists of a proprietary formulation of Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, Choline Bitartrate, Whey Protein Hydrolysate (Milk Sourced Isolate), L-Arginine, L-Histidine, L-Glutamine, Theobromine, Griffonia Seed, Grape Seed, L-Serine, and Cinnamon in specific proportions.
These ingredients fall into the classification of Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) as defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). A GRAS substance is distinguished from a food additive on the basis of the common knowledge about the safety of the substance for its intended use. The standard for an ingredient to achieve GRAS status requires not only technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, but also general recognition of safety through widespread usage and agreement of that safety by experts in the field. Many ingredients have been determined by the FDA to be GRAS, and are listed as such by regulation, in Volume 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Sections 182, 184, and 186. Amino Acids Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and are GRAS listed as they have been safely ingested by humans for thousands of years. The formulations of the amino acids in Theramine are equivalent to those found in the usual human diet. Patients with pain disorders may require an increased amount of certain amino acids that cannot be obtained from normal diet alone. Tryptophan, for example, is an obligatory amino acid. The body cannot make tryptophan and must obtain tryptophan from the diet. Tryptophan is needed to produce serotonin. Serotonin is required to reduce pain. Patients with pain disorders and inflammatory conditions have altered serotonin metabolism. Flavonoids Flavonoids are a group of phytochemical compounds found in all vascular plants including fruits and vegetables. They are a part of a larger class of compounds known as polyphenols. Many of the therapeutic or health benefits of colored fruits and vegetables, cocoa, red wine, and green tea are directly related to their flavonoid content. The specially formulated flavonoids found in Theramine cannot be obtained from conventional foods in the necessary proportions to elicit a therapeutic response.
