Our concussion treatment is a Synapsin® Methylcobalamin Nasal Spray. Synapsin is an innovative blend of ginsenoside Rg3 and nicotinamide riboside. It is designed to be used in formulations for the support of neurological health and cognitive support. Studies have shown improvements in neuroinflammation due to a reduction (down regulation) of microglial cells, a lowering of the oxidative stress, increased neuroprotective activity and an increase in neural budding.
ABOUT NICOTINAMIDE RIBOSIDE
Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is a form of vitamin B3 found in cow’s milk. Laboratory studies report administration of nicotinamide riboside supports healthy levels of NAD+ in yeast and cultured human and mammalian cells. NR is reported to be incorporated into the cellular NAD+ pool via the action of nicotinamide riboside kinase (Nrk) pathway or via nicotinamide (Nam) salvage after conversion to Nam by phosphorolysis. Laboratory studies have also reported the supportive and neuroprotective role for NAD+. In laboratory , nicotinamide riboside supports neuronal NAD+ synthesis without inhibiting sirtuins, which are important regulators of metabolism and longevity. In layman’s terms, nicotinamide riboside reduces the oxidative stress within the brain. Stress causes suppression of adult neurogenesis. This causes an environment that allows for neural budding to be stimulated.
