NeuroRecovery is based on research focused on rebuilding nerves and the central nervous system. This formulation is optimized to help support nerve tissue renewal and remyelination following damage. Sources of damage to nerve cells are ubiquitous in modern society. Cumulative research findings indict endogenous free radical production in the absence of adequate antioxidant defenses; drugs of lifestyle, especially alcohol (which can devastate the brain), cigarette smoke, and cocaine; many pharmaceuticals; and heavy metals, organochlorines and other classes of pollutant chemicals. Emotional stress also exacts a toll on the nerve tissues, largely ischemia. most recently homocysteine, a product of metabolism with great potential for toxicity, has been linked to atherosclerosis with impaired blood delivery to the brain, as well as to nerve network loss in the brain cortex.
