Stuck in overdrive?

On yesterday’s call we talked about the negative effects of an overactive anterior cingulate, which is extremely common in Brain Injury, PTSD, anxiety, ASD, OCD, ADHD etc. The anterior cingulate serves as the “gear shift” of the brain and when overactive, can cause repetitive behaviors, rumination, inability to change tasks or multitask, adrenal dysfunction, anxiety, anger, frustration, and an over all feeling of getting “stuck” on something where your brain just won’t shut up. 

You can help combat this with a wonderful supplement called 5-htp. BrainMD also has a supplement specially formulated that has 5-htp, GABA, L-tyrosine, L-glutamine, L-taurine, and vitamin B6, all calming agents to help your brain “chill out”

Depending on where your brain is at the moment, this may be a great option for you to try. If you aren’t sure about starting a new supplement, ask your Integrative Medicine Doctor for an amino acid analysis to make sure you would benefit without adverse effects.
