What I noticed right away about the formulas was that they had the NSB™ (NeuroSupport Blend) in them. So many of our patients with adrenal issues also have gut issues, and they’re malabsorbing. Getting them on a product that's going to actually be bioavailable was super important.
The art & science of functional nutrition™
Ingredients in Contegra™ support balance within the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal-thyroid (HPA-T) axis.* Contegra also includes ingredients that support inhibitory activity as well as ingredients for excitatory activity to maintain inhibitory and excitatory balance.* Healthy methylation is supported by multiple biologically active ingredients.*
The NeuroSupport Blend™ (NSB) enhances absorption.* Improved absorption allows for smaller doses and fewer capsules.
Contegra is often suggested after inhibitory support (Prolent™, Lentra™, Tranquilent™) has begun and offers a gentle transition to excitatory support. The dose of ingredients supporting excitatory neurotransmitters is higher in Procite-D™ than in Contegra. Contegra may be used in the Initial, Restoration or Maintenance phases on the path to patient wellness.
L-theanine as Suntheanine® (standardized to >99%) Shown to promote relaxation by multiple mechanisms including antagonizing glutamate receptors, increasing the release of GABA, and decreasing norepinephrine levels in the brain.*1,2
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine Precursor to L-DOPA, the direct precursor to the catecholamines dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.* Acetylated for enhanced bioavailability.
