|Myelin Sheath Support Herbal Formula|
Herbal-Nutrient Nervous System Support
Planetary Formulas Myelin Sheath Support is a comprehensive botanical preparation,
designed to support the fat-like insulating sheath (myelin) that surrounds certain
nerve tissues. This formula was developed by herbalist Alan Tillotson, a clinician
with 20 years of clinical experience.
Myelin Sheath Support: Nervous System Support
Myelin Sheath Support is a broad-range herbal-nutrient formula that supports
your nervous system with traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese botanicals as well
as scientifically researched nutrients. Vitamin B-12 is key to the Myelin Sheath
Support formula. It plays two critical roles: 1) it is essential for normal
health of blood; and 2) it may function as a coenzyme in the synthesis of either
the protein or lipid part of myelin.
Comprehensive Botanical - Nutrient Formula
- Ayurvedic botanicals:
Ashwagandha has been widely used throughout India for 3,000-4,000 years. It
is one of the most highly regarded tonics in the 6,000-year old Ayurvedic
tradition. Bacopa has been reported by Ayurvedic scholar Charaka to promote
mental ability. Yogaraj guggul is one of the most valued botanical compounds
of Ayurveda. The boswellic acids in boswellia inhibit leukotriene synthesis.
Shilajit, a mineral resin that oozes from steep rocks in the Himalayas, is
used extensively in Ayurveda. Curcuma (turmeric) has been used both internally
and externally in Ayurveda. Curcuma is included in a dosage clinically shown
to inhibit a group of enzymes that influence metabolism of arachidonic acid.
Arachidonic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid found in most animal fats and
is a precursor of prostaglandins.
- Chinese herbs:
Included are the Chinese tonifiers panax ginseng and tienchi ginseng, as well
as licorice extract (which is also prominent in European herbalism). Myelin
Sheath Support delivers panax ginseng in amounts clinically shown to have
adaptogenic (anti-stress) effects.
Vitamin B-12, central for supporting the nervous system and specifically the
myelin sheath, is included in the form of methylcobalamin. While a few forms
of B-12 have been used clinically, it has been shown that methylcobalamin
is a highly assimilable form of B-12, leading to increased retention in tissues.
Myelin Sheath Support also includes zinc, copper, L-selenomethionine, boron,
calcium, potassium, magnesium, chromium and pantothenic acid.
