How does Spectrum Awakening Work?

Vitamin B-12 and L-methylfolate are essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and participate in key methylation reactions. In fact, B vitamins (folate, B-6, and B-12) are all involved in methylation, which is necessary for the production of monoamine neurotransmitters, phospholipids, and nucleotides in the brain [1]. Multiple studies have shown that folate and vitamin B-6 levels in the blood are significantly, positively correlated with test scores for several domains of cognitive and neurophysiological function [1]. B-6 is also known to catalyze the reaction that produces serotonin from its precursor 5-HTP (another component included in this blend) [2]. Serotonin levels have been shown to increase in response to 5-HTP and vitamin B-6 [3].

Developed by Jared M. Skowron, ND

Noted naturopathic pediatrician Jared Skowron has used his experience in clinical practice to fine-tune this unique formula. Designed to support methylation, neurotransmitter synthesis, and calm the brain, Spectrum Awakening contains a blend of activated B vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to support optimal nervous system functioning, normal mood, and emotional well-being. Now with higher levels of GABA (750 mg/2 scoops), an inhibitory neurotransmitter researched for its role in normal neurodevelopment, and methylcobalamin (1000 mcg/2 scoops), the active, methylated form of B-12. B-12 and L-methylfolate are essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and participate in key methylation reactions. 5-HTP is an immediate precursor to serotonin, a reaction catalyzed by B-6. Magnesium affects serotonin receptors and zinc influences brain homeostasis. L-Theanine, found in green tea, reduces neuronal overstimulation. Taurine has been added for its neuroprotective properties. This formula is easily mixed into food or drinks. 
 

  • Supports healthy nervous system functioning
  • Provides nutrients to support balanced neurotransmitter production
  • Promotes calm and focus

How does Spectrum Awakening Work?

Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system [4]. By binding the GABA receptor, GABA inhibits the “fight-or-flight’ mechanisms of the mammalian neuromuscular system in response to environmental stressors, thereby promoting calm and a reduced stress level [4]. GABA also plays a role in the development of healthy, normal neurons and synapse formations in the immature, developing brain [5]. Studies show that GABA release in the brain is enhanced with an increase in zinc availability [6].

Magnesium is responsible for the biochemical action of many enzymes and reactions within the body, but unfortunately, magnesium deficiency is quite prevalent. Studies have shown a protective effect of Magnesium from ischemic damage to the brain and an inhibitory effect on the release of the stress hormone, norepinephrine [7]. Magnesium is known to balance cellular Ca levels, regulating cell signaling pathways and neurotransmission [7].

Taurine, a sulfur-containing, semi-essential amino acid, is required in a certain abundance for the normal development of the central nervous system (CNS), calcium modulation, membrane stabilization, reproduction, and immunity [8]. L-Theanine, also an amino acid, has been shown in double-blind placebo studies to attenuate sympathetic nervous system responses to acute stressors (i.e. reduced heart rate and salivary production of immunoglobulin A) [9].
