BrainMD NeuroLink Reviews 2021 – Do Brain Supplement Work?

Apr 9, 2021

About The Brand BrainMD NeuroLink, which assists emotional and behavioral health, is one of a string of brain products marketed by BrainMD which was founded in 2009 by Daniel Amen, a psychiatrist, neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author. NeuroLink aims to help people when they’re feeling irritable, sad or emotionally overwhelmed. The supplement employs a blend of tailored nutrients that it delivers to neurotransmitters which act as important chemical messengers in the brain to make users feel calmer, more positive as well as clear-headed . Let’s dive in to see the newest BrainMD NeuroLink reviews in 2021. NeuroLink comes in capsule or powder forms and the end goal is to promote a positive mood, a tranquil mind and promote concentration and overall brain function. BrainMD likes to say it takes a “360-degree approach” to achieve optimal brain and physical wellness, says all the raw materials it uses are lab-tested for potency and results and that it uses no artificial fillers or ingredients. There’s no scientific proof that supplements for the brain enhance mood and brain performance but an estimated 25% of US adults over 50 take such products anyway and there are many glowing testimonials to their supposed efficacy. What is BrainMD NeuroLink? Brain MD NeuroLink is part of the company’s wide brain health supplement line. The product uses natural, ethically sourced ingredients that are either the same chemical compound made by the body or the most bioavailable form of the vitamin or mineral. The Brain MD NeuroLink formula is a combination of clinical-grade, toxin-free supplements as vitamins and minerals work better together. The company says anxiety and depression can often be traced to a neurotransmitter imbalance and that its nutrient blend supports key neurotransmitters like adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, GABA, glutamate, and serotonin. It says its products stem from cutting-edge research [1]and have been formulated by a team of neuroscience experts. BrainMD Neurolink Ingredients Reviews 2021: What is inside? If you want to think more clearly and stay more focused or are having mood issues, Brain MD NeuroLink may well be worth a try. NeuroLink – the product overwhelmingly positive reviews from customers both on Amazon and on the company’s website aims to create a “better brain chemistry” via a premium blend of nutrients that supports key neurotransmitters. The company’s products are made in US Food and Drug Administration- (FDA) registered facilities and the ingredients adhere to strict purity guidelines. The vegan product contains six main ingredients: 20mg B6, 500mg GABA, 400mg L-Taurine, 1000mg L-tyrosine, 400mg L-Glutamine and 100mgm and 100mg 5-HYDROXYTRYPTOPHAN. The company says it’s chosen these nutrients, which it describes as “everyday essentials lacking in most modern diets,”  to help the brain and body function at their best. Other ingredients such as vegetable cellulose used in their vegetarian capsules, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide. The supplement contains no artificial colors or preservatives. Vitamin B6 20mg The supplement contains 20mg of Vitamin B6 [2] (Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate or PLP which plays a key role in keeping the brain and nervous system functioning well and is considered vital to overall brain health. The amount of B6 in the supplement is well beyond daily needs but Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that dissolves in water so the body cannot store them. Leftover amounts of the vitamin that the body cannot use leave the body through the urine. Pyridoxal 5- phosphate PLP is the active coenzyme form that helps more than 100 enzymes perform various functions, including the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats; maintaining normal levels of homocysteine (since high levels can cause heart problems); and supports the immune function. Some research suggests that getting adequate B6 is important for aging brains and may play a role in slowing cognitive decline and age-related memory loss. L-Tyrosine 1000mg (no daily recommended dose)  Tyrosine [3] is an amino acid that is a protein building block and is used to improve alertness, attention and focus. It produces important brain chemicals that help nerve cells communicate and could improve mood. Stress depletes the brain’s norepinephrine stores, and when norepinephrine runs low, memory, focus, and general cognition can be affected. Tyrosine turns into dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls enjoyment and motivation. Research suggests that tyrosine may help a person dealing with stress. GABA 500mg (no daily recommended dose)  Gamma-Aminobutyric acid or GABA [4] is an amino acid considered to be the brain’s “calming” neurotransmitter. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases nervous system activity. When GABA links to a brain protein known as a GABA receptor, it has a calming effect that can reduce anxiety, stress, and fear. L-Glutamine  400mg (no daily recommended dose)  Known as the calming amino acid, L-Glutamine is considered important to reduce stress. It’s believed to be effective in reducing anxiety as well as alcohol and sugar cravings. Glutamate is also especially important for memory and acquired learning. Glutamate [5] is a brain stimulant, firing up brain synapses when the mind is applied to learning or producing  L-Taurine  400mg (no daily recommended dose)  L-Taurine [6] is an amino acid that is a building block of proteins. The body uses proteins to grow and repair tissues. This amino acid is considered important to reduce stress as well as being essential for brain and eye growth. Importantly, taurine may have a protective effect on the brain and taurine supplementation may work to promote healthy long-term memory storage, according to researchers. They suggest taurine could ward off certain age-related neurodegenerative conditions. 5-Hydroxytryptophan 100mg (no daily recommended dose)  5-HTP [7], which is a compound produced in the body, increases a chemical in the brain called serotonin. Serotonin, which can also be manufactured from the seeds of an African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, is used in medications to treat such conditions as depression, anxiety, insomnia and migraine  Other ingredients include citric acid, monk fruit, natural orange color, natural orange flavor, silicon dioxide, organic Stevia, sodium alginate. Does BrainMD NeuroLink really work? There’s no scientific proof given on the company’s website that the product works but many users report that it has been greatly beneficial for their mental and emotional health and cognitive function. The company calls the product “a broad-spectrum dietary supplement for balancing the brain.” NeuroLinks works on the premise that when your brain cells don’t communicate, it throws off the body’s emotional balance and disrupts cognitive function. NeuroLink is a blend of vitamins and amino acids intended to restore brain cell communication. Feel-good hormones like serotonin [8] that create a sense of emotional stability and wellbeing are fuelled by balanced brain chemistry. Company founder Dr. Amen, who’s a distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, has established eight Amen Clinics across the US that see over 7,000 patients monthly. He appears regularly on TV to talk about brain and mental health issues. As Amen says: “Brain health is central to all health, wellness and success.” The company says it incorporates the latest science and medical findings into every BrainMD product. How does BrainMD NeuroLink work? The theory behind NeuroLink is that a “balanced brain equals a brain that is happy, even-tempered and productive. If you like, the goal of NeuroLink is to get your brain’s symphony in tune as its reviews. Your brain health is greatly affected by your brain chemistry. Circuits driven by one transmitter type make synaptic connections with circuits driven by other transmitters, creating symphony-like patterns of electrical activity. You may have noticed that some people have a consistently positive mental outlook and find it easy to achieve goals while others struggle with moods, depression along with focus and productivity issues. The aim of NeuroLink is to even out those differences in brain chemistry in people who are having mood and other problems and brink the brain’s chemistry into a healthy balance. NeuroLink supplies an exclusive blend of nutrients that support such key transmitters as adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, GABA, glutamate, and serotonin. Simply put, the brain’s nerve cells make connections with each other called synapses. These chemical signals are carried by specific messenger substances called neurotransmitters. The better our transmitters operate in balance with each other, the closer we are to having optimal mental function. NeuroLink supports an array of transmitters that are key to helping us feel emotionally balanced and able to cope with feelings of anxiety, stress and worry. They also help us feel more focused and even-tempered. BrainMD NeuroLink reviews say its formula is made from a combination of ingredients because it believe “vitamins and minerals work better together.” NeuroLink says its key goals are to support a healthy balance of brain chemistry; promote a positive outlook along with relaxation; and support the brain and adrenals to cope with stress. But the benefits from the ingredients in BrainMD NeuroLink go way beyond brain chemistry to support other functions in the body. They contribute to healthy functioning of the thyroid gland, the adrenals, liver, digestive, skin and other organ systems. Health Benefits of BrainMD NeuroLink NeuroLink is a blend of vitamins and amino acids intended to restore brain cell communication and brain balance. Feel-good hormones like serotonin that create a sense of emotional stability and wellbeing are fuelled by having balanced brain chemistry. The product’s formula also seeks to tamp down cortisol, the stress hormone, that creates brain fog and reduces concentration and cognitive function. Potential Side Effects NeuroLink’s ingredients are widely used in various brain supplements, however, there are reviews on NeuroLink side effects should be noted. The composition of the supplement does contain ingredients that can cause health problems for some individuals. The company states clearly on its website that BrainMD NeuroLink should not be taken by anyone who is on antidepressant or monoamine oxidase inhibitor medications, or if they’re allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients. For instance, while there hasn’t been sufficient research to determine the side effects of GABA, one of the mood-boosting ingredients in the NeuroLink supplement, doctors say it’s important to use it with caution if taking blood pressure medications and to not use GABA if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, consuming too much B6, another mood-boosting ingredient in NeuroLink, from supplements can cause damage to nerves and extremities over time, though the 20mg of B6 in NeuroLink is well within safe levels. With L-tyrosine supplements, some people report side effects such as nausea, heartburn, joint pains and headaches. Bottom line: always consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
