- How It Works -
As with any organ, substances in the diet such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids (omega 3) can affect brain chemistry and function.1 Until recently, it had not been fully accepted that nutrition had any influence on brain health. Today, some foods and supplements are being recognized for their natural benefit for depressed and anxious moods and emotions. There is now enough documented evidence to assert that certain amino acids affect the synthesis and release of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals). However, their effects on brain function are not fully understood by the mainstream medical community. This lack of understanding often leads to prescription drugs as a first line of defense for a mood imbalance, when simply supplementing the diet with a natural remedy may prove sufficient.
Studies have shown that the diet does indeed influence brain function. Brains cells require specific nutrients to produce neurotransmitters (chemical messengers in the brain). Neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, help regulate our moods and emotions. When the brain is under emotional stress, it can become depleted of these key neurotransmitters.2,3,4 Therefore, it is reasonable to suggest, supplementing the diet with the Protazen® system of supplements can promote the natural production of neurotransmitters. Additionally, because these precursors are considered food product, they are relatively safe natural remedies.5

- Ingredients -
The "Base" is our primary formula and the foundation of the Protazen® philosophy. This blend is formulated to address most areas of mental wellness and balance. It contains 11 ingredients, including the key amino acids L-Tyrosine and DL-Phenylalanine that support the production of key neurotransmitters – chemical messengers in the brain that help regulate mood and emotion.
Below is more detail about the ingredients in the Protazen® Base Formula, and how they can support your mental health:
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine) plays an important role in the brain's glucose metabolism – how the brain generates fuel (energy). Deficiency of B-1 can lead to loss of appetite, weakness, nervous irritability, insomnia, aches & pains, and low moods. Thiamine deficiency can also lead to the stress and death of neurons, loss of memory, plaque formation — all markers of Alzheimer’s disease. Supporting Research...>
L-Tyrosine is an essential amino acid that, once in the brain, is a precursor of key neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and epinephrine. This essential amino acid is found in many protein rich foods (i.e. turkey, chicken, duck, pork, eggs, dairy products) and is a necessary part of a healthy diet. Even if you consume these foods, it is still possible that your consumption levels are not adequate to support proper brain function. L-Tyrosine has been found to support thyroid hormone levels, increase mood, concentration, productivity, coping ability, sex drive, metabolism, and can promote endurance under stress. Women who take oral contraceptives often have lower levels of Tyrosine; which may be a link between mood swings and oral contraceptives. Supporting Research…>
Herb-of-Grace (Bacopa Monnieri) is considered a rejuvenating herb for nerve and brain cells. Some studies have shown that this herb increases protein synthesis in the brain, increasing intelligence, longevity, and short-term memory. It also has calming effects. Several studies have substantiated Bacopa's nootropic benefit in humans. There is evidence for potential mitigation of dementia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, and epilepsy. Supporting Research…>
Lemon Balm Leaf Powder can relax the nervous system promoting normal sleep. It can also help support the female reproductive system by easing tension and cramping during menses.
Passion Flower (Passiflorra incarnata) It has been used by the native people of North, Central, and South America for centuries, and is still prescribed by physicians in Europe as a natural calming agent and relaxant. Supporting Research…>
DL-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is recognized for being the precursor for many proteins; namely tyrosine, which in turn is a precursor for epinephrine and norepinephrine. Phenylalanine is a part of numerous substances in the brain that affect mood, pain, memory, and appetite. Studies suggest (but do not prove) DL-Phenylalanine may have anti-depressive properties and may be effective in reducing depressive moods, and countering fatigue.
Gastrodia (Gastrodia elata) is an expensive herbal extract that is native to the Far East. Gastrodia is first mentioned in the Shennong Bencao Jing, which was compiled around A.D. 100. It is said to have sedative and analgesic properties.
DMAE is a naturally occurring mild cerebral stimulating nutrient found in brain foods such as anchovies and sardines. It has been found to NOT effect heart rate, blood pressure and doesn’t induce “jitteriness.” Researches have found DMAE to increase alertness, improve concentration, promote assertiveness, increase motivation, support mood, and increase daytime energy.

SAM-e (S-adenosyl-L-methionine disulfate p-toluenesulfonate) is a compound that is produced naturally in the body from the essential amino acid methionine. SAM-e plays a role in various biochemical reactions, including the formation of key neurotransmitters. Although SAM-e has only been on the market in the US since 1999, it has been studied for decades internationally and is sold as a prescription drug in Spain, Italy, Russia and Germany.
Bioperine® is an herbal extract from the pepper plant that, when consumed along with vitamin and mineral nutrients, increases the bio-availability (the absorption and utilization) of the nutrients.
Huperzine A (Huperzia serrata) is an alkaloid found in the herb Huperzia serrata a.k.a Toothed Clubmoss. It has been found to regulate the breakdown of acetylcholine, an important substance needed by the nervous system to transmit information from cell to cell. In China, HupA is being studied to see if it improves cognitive abilities in Alzheimer’s patients. It may also be helpful in supporting memory and the learning ability of healthy individuals. However, it is important to remember that clinical trials are still in the early stages. Supporting Research…>
I've been grieving the loss of a loved one and been getting very short, grumpy and impatient. I took these protozen base formula pills ( I took two at once at first, but find one at breakfast and one at lunch works too )and immediately noticed myself calm down. A couple times when I felt particularly stressed and aggrevated I took one at that time and again noticed myself calm down in minutes
Protazen has done a great job helping me deal with my anxiety. It hasn't helped my depression as much as i was hoping but it makes me feel way better than i used to. I would highly recommend this to a friend.
I like this product! The first couple of days I felt a bit foggy because my brain was adjusting, but I continued to take it as prescribed 2x a day after breakfast and again after lunch and I feel as if my depression is much more manageable! I am able to work out more regularly and feel more centered!
I think with any medication, its effectiveness and side effects are variable depending on your brain/body chemistry. For me, taking 1 Protazen gives me a lot of energy (like drinking 3 cups of coffee). It lifts up my mood a little. My biggest complaint is that I have a hard time sleeping on days that I take it (just 1 capsule). I tried taking it as instructed (2 per day) for the first few weeks, but I was almost jittery and definitely not able to get to sleep. Again, could totally just be my chemistry--but I only take one early in the day, and on days I know I can stay up a bit later than usual. It does give me a boost--so somethings about it are working well.
I am a brand new customer. I am on day 3 and already have noticed a difference.( even though it claims a full week to notice the effects) I feel GREAT in general! Total mood, mindset, and overall feeling is great. So glad I decided to try the Protazen Base!
