There are certain times I must reinvent the wheel in my practice and there are other times that I don’t need to. With Sanesco I don’t really need to reinvent the wheel, it's already right there.
The art & science of functional nutrition™
Balance between inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters is vital to health and well-being. Inhibitory neurotransmitters such as serotonin, GABA and glycine control excitatory signals in the nervous system. That is why supporting inhibitory neurotransmitters often results in an overall calming and relaxing effect.
Prolent includes ingredients that support the action of inhibitory neurotransmitters.* 5-HTP and vitamin B6 support serotonin synthesis.* Theanine, as Suntheanine®, supports both the release of GABA and its function.*1,2 The combination of these ingredients along with glycine allows Prolent™ to offer comprehensive support for inhibitory neurotransmission.*
The NeuroSupport Blend™ (NSB) enhances absorption.* Improved absorption allows for smaller doses and fewer capsules.
Prolent helps prevent over-excitation when catecholamine support is being used.* Prolent may be used in Initial, Restoration and Maintenance phases along the path to patient wellness. It may be combined with Lentra™, SomniTR™, or Tranquilent™ for added inhibitory support.*
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
5-HTP: A naturally occurring amino acid and metabolite of L– tryptophan. 5-HTP is the direct precursor in the biosynthesis of serotonin.* Use of 5-HTP avoids the rate-limiting conversion of tryptophan to 5-HTP.
Glycine: Functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, primarily in the brainstem and spinal cord.*3
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5’-phosphate): Active form of B6. Cofactor in conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin.*
NeuroSupport Blend™ (NSB): Proprietary mixture composed of Bioperine® and plant-based enzymes clinically proven to maximize nutrient absorption.*

GABA is important for:
- Calm and relaxation4
- Regulating excitability4
Serotonin also plays important roles in:
- Mental and emotional health (including mood and anxiousness)5
- Stress response6
- Appetite and cravings7
- Pain perception8
- GI motility10
- Menstrual health12
- Calm and relaxation14
Muscle control and coordination Glycine is important in:
- Pain perception15,16

What They're Saying
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.
Of the 5,000 people that I looked at in my initial studies, there was not one person that had a normal serotonin. So, since Prolent is the targeted formula for serotonin, yes, I would say I use it a lot!*
