Product Details

Nerve Chex™ has been formulated with a combination of vitamins, minerals, herbs and glandulars to support a healthy mood [1].  Some of the specific components are discussed below:

Acerola Cherry is a naturally dense form of Food vitamins C that contains bioflavonoids.  “Vitamin C may have anti-hypertensive activity…{its} antioxidant effects are well established” [2].

Nerve Chex™ contains multiple New Zealand Bovine Glandulars. New Zealand is a nation that has never had a case of BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) [3-4]. Brain tissue contains “specific brain cell activators” [5]. They have been advised for slowness of thought, loss of memory, uncontrolled mental activity, nightmares, mental retardation, and epilepsy [6-7].

        1. Bovine Hypothalamus provides hypothalamus tissue, it is responsible for neural and endocrine functions.  “In any situation where the endocrine system is particularly resistant to balancing, the hypothalamus should be considered” [7].
        2. Bovine Liver has been included in this formulation due to its detoxifying ability. The liver is the chemical factory of the body and makes hundreds of substances which help throughout the body [1].
        3. Bovine Orchic supplies orchic tissue.  “The orchic affects somatic development, fat distribution, and psychic development” [7]. The late Royal Lee recommended it for those with hyperirritability, nervous tension, lowered tolerance to stress, low mood, “loss of psychic tone,” insecurity, “mental aberrations,” and “[l]ack of feeling of well-being” [8]. He also wrote that supplementation with it improved oxygenation and he believed vitamin B-6 worked well with these glands [9].
        4. Bovine Spleen tissue, it is the body’s largest lymphatic organ.  Part of the blood-cleansing function of the spleen is the removal of old or weak cells [1]. Supplementation was helpful for those with hyperirritability [10].

Calcium supports healthy blood pressure as well as bone and muscle health [2]. Calcium supplementation was helpful for those with hyperirritability [11] and {it} can affect mood [12-13].

Kelp is a Food high in minerals, especially iodine [14].  “Kelp can rebalance thyroid metabolism, resulting in successful weight management and the reversal of many conditions which are caused by a thyroid imbalance, including stomach and respiratory disorders” [15].

“Magnesium… plays a vital modulatory role in brain biochemistry, influencing several neurotransmission pathways associated with the development of depression” [16]. Manganese… “appears to affect manganese homeostasis in the brain, probably followed by alteration of neural activity” [17] and can affect mood [18].

Niacinamide has been found to improve mood [19]. Combined with vitamin B-6, Royal Lee advised it to people with “psychic manifestation,” melancholia, sensitivity to sunlight, as well as nervousness [20].

Para-Aminobenzoic Acid is known as PABA, it was once considered to be a B vitamin [21]. “A deficiency of PABA may lead to depression, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, graying of the hair, irritability, nervousness and patchy areas of the white skin” [22].

Vitamin B-6 is an essential nutrient [2]. “{It} is involved in the regulation of mental function and mood… Epidemiological studies indicate that poor vitamin B6 status is common among older people.  Hyperhomocysteinaemia has been suggested as a cause or mechanism in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia…” [23].

Vitamin B-12 has many functions including memory and mood [2]. Royal Lee wrote that vitamin B-12 was helpful for those with “slowness of thought” and apathy [24]. The vitamin B-12 in Nerve Chex is methylated.

Clinically, people who have taken Nerve Chex™ have reported mood improvements.
