In general, it is mostly true. But, it is flawed for a number of reasons; the first being the definition of â€œhealthy balanced diet.â€ We cannot delve into this particular aspect in any great depth here. But, suffice it to say that the questionable quality of foods in our markets is a serious concern, especially those produced by standard agribusiness factory farms and food processing technologies.
On a more relevant point, as mentioned in another answer, there are 3 main reasons people are unhealthy:
Poor lifestyle choices: This includes taking in not enough of the good stuff that keeps us healthy (i.e. nutritional deficiencies, etc.); and getting too much of the bad stuff that makes us unhealthy (i.e. toxic chemical & environmental pollutants, EMFs, etc.).
(Dis)Stress: Excessive stressful burdens contribute to â€œtoo much of the badâ€ in #1 immediately above.
Genetic predispositions: Genetic predispositions are a major contributor to Reward Deficiency Syndrome behaviors (more on this later). We can't change our genes, but we can change ('make a corrective adjustment' ala 'Optimize') our Gene Expression.
Over 30% of the US population carries a genetic predisposition that increases the susceptibility to greater consequences from stress and risk of excessive obsessive, compulsive, impulsive, and addictive behaviors. This particular genetic predisposition is the dopamine D2 receptor gene, Taq I A1 variant (called an 'allele' or polymorphism); generally it is referred to simply as the 'DRD2 A1 gene'. This is the â€œreward geneâ€ (also called â€œthe addiction geneâ€) that was discovered by Kenneth Blum, Ph.D. and Ernest Noble, Ph.D. and reported in JAMA in 1990. By the way, the rate of obesity is just over 30% of Americans (not a coincidence that it is the same as the rate of obesity). People who carry this gene have 30% to 40% less dopamine D2 receptors. This causes dopamine resistance and an increased need for a pleasure satisfying 'dopamine fix', because dopamine is your happy, feel good, anti-stress, and will-power neurotransmitter (among others). People that carry this gene routinely have â€œReward Deficiency Syndromeâ€ because it takes much more dopamine stimulating thoughts, behaviors, and substances (like sugar, drugs, food, etc.) to produce enough dopamine just to feel good (or normal).
In these cases, even eating the so-called healthy diet most often doesn't provide enough nutritional support to answer the need for more dopamine satisfaction. BRAIN REWARD is apatented KB220Z Nutraceutical Neuroadaptogen (US Patents 6,132,724, 6,955,873, and EU Patent EPO979092) and provides the only known evidence-based natural and effective dopamine agonist, supported by 27 studies (to date) that nutritionally supports optimal dopamine sensitivity and function*. BRAIN REWARD balances the neurochemistry in the brain reward cascade, culminating with dopamine*.
BRAIN REWARD contains some special forms and specific amounts of amino acids that are very important in the manufacturing of neurotransmitters in the brain reward cascade (BRC). If the supplements you are taking, or the food you are eating contain proteins or amino acids, then you will increase the possibility that these proteins or amino acids would compete for absorption and function and interfere with or prevent the absorption and/or work in opposition of each other once inside the cells. It is called 'competitive inhibition'. In effect, you could significantly diminish the benefits of either by taking them together, which would be a waste of money.
Various types of nutrients that go through the digestive process have different absorption sites and rates. Some nutrients are absorbed pretty fast and some take much longer. Moreover, digestive health and absorption rates vary between people. However, the number one reason for emergency room visits in the US is digestive problemsâ€¦it is an epidemic. So, the Molecular Self Assembly (MSA) liposome encapsulated nano technology is designed to bypass the need for digestive disintegration and dissolution of nutrient components and gain rapid access to the blood stream and targeted tissues. All of the cells in the GI tract are phospholipid loving. The liposome capsule is a phospholipid that is effortlessly absorbed with its ingredient payload. The reports from the field indicate extremely rapid biological activity.
Moreover, a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2007, reported on a comparison of identical formulations of CoQ10 & Vitamin E, one in a conventional sofgel capsule and the other a liposomal preparation (LP). The CoQ10 from the LP increased bioavailability by 5-fold over the non-LP CoQ10, and bioavailability of the LP of vitamin E was enhanced 10-fold over the standard non-LP form [Wajda R, Zirkel J, and Schaffer T. Increase of Bioavailability of Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E. J Med Food; 10 (4): 731â€“734 (2007)].
No! One of the roles of phenylalanine is as a building block for Dopamine. Dopamine is an anti-stress and reward neurotransmitter. This is why deficits in dopamine tend to lead to "excessive reward seeking behaviors" like for over indulging in food, alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, etc Sufficient dopamine causes a feeling of satisfaction, contentment, and even happiness, not stimulation per se. There are over 40 years of research by world renowned neuro-psychopharmacologists, like Dr. Kenneth Blum,the father of psychiatric genetics, supporting the crucial roles of all the ingredients in BRAIN REWARD.
