Neurological Disorders

Healthy, robust brain function requires a delicate balance of all 20 amino acids and Omega-3 fatty acids, such as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA and EPA are vital components to the lubrication of intercellular communication and general function in our brain. Lack of these amino and fatty acids in our diets, or micronutrient deficiencies, are often associated with mood disorders, anxiety, and even depression. As a sustainable plant based source, AFA delivers each one of the 20 amino acids, as well as DHA and EPA fatty acids–uniquely supporting optimal mood and cognitive function through nutrition.

Good Habits

Intentional Dieting (Fruits/Veggies vs Fast Food), Good Sleep (8hrs regularly), Positive Stress Management (Physical Movement vs Smoking/Drinking), Time In Nature, New Activities & Challenges* Sunshine (If Available), Limited Screen Time

Bad Habits

Unaware Dieting (Fast Food vs Fruits/Veggies), Lack Of Rest (>8hrs Regularly), Minimal Physical Movement, Excess Screen Time, Minimal Time Outdoors

AFA + Neurological Disorders

Antioxidant Enzymes and Vitamins form a shield protecting cellular reproduction, maintaining fluidity and flexibility AFA contains 20 Amino acids in the exact proportions humans need to optimize brain function, elevate mood, and support depression and anxiety.

There is increasing evidence that increased intake of the long-chain omega-3 PUFA, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), benefits a variety of psychiatric and neurological disorders, and in particular neurodegenerative conditions and decline associated with aging.

The EPA and DHA acids trigger the production of molecules called protectins and resolvins, which restore brain tissue and protect it from oxidative stress.

Proper brain function requires the synergy of many nutrients working together, such as amino acids and Omega-3 fatty acids. Lack of these amino and fatty acids in our diets, or micronutrient deficiencies, are often associated with mood disorders, anxiety, and even depression.

Optimal cognitive function, mental health and mental performance require your mind and body to be saturated with the correct, delicate balance of DHA, EPA, amino acids and other micronutrients that activate a healthy brain. Poor diets limit nutrient intake and constant stress inhibits the absorption and availability of many essential micronutrients, creating a variety of results, such as micronutrient deficiencies. Depression, anxiety, brain fog, cognitive decline, adult and child ADHD and other neurological diseases are associated micronutrient deficiencies. .

When well lubricated and well balanced with all 20 amino acids and fatty acids like DHA and EPA, our brains are more likely to function on a higher level–possibly leading to a sort of nutritionally based happiness. For example, the combination of the amino acid Phenylalanine converting to Tyrosine in the liver creates Phenylethylamine (PEA), known as the love molecule. The presence of PEA in your bloodstream releases dopamine and adrenaline, making us feel as though we are in love or just completed a long run or walk in nature. AFA contains this precious mood-supporting amino acid and also aids its natural production in your body.

Another powerful mood-boosting amino acid present in AFA, Tryptophan, is the necessary link to the creation of serotonin, a crucial feel good brain chemical. Studies have shown that mood swings, carbohydrate cravings, reductions in anxiety and phobias are also connected to the biosynthesis of serotonin.

Each of the individual 20 amino acids plays a role in healthy brain function. Our bodies cannot store these, therefore we require a daily balance of all 20 amino acids in small amounts. Consistently ingesting this balance of amino and fatty acids can do wonders for improved mood, focus and general cognition. This benefit is the most reported illicit response from AFA consumers. As studies on depression often cite low levels of micronutrients, supporting your cognitive health with potent and complete nutrition can be a natural approach to positively affecting your mental health. There is no nutritional rival on earth that has such a powerful combination of complete Omega-3’s and amino acids–AFA is pure brain food.
