  • What is the difference between NeuroVance & Neurovance Focus

    NeuroVance Focus contains added vitamins and minerals to optimise your brain function and cognition.

    The increased Zinc accumulates in the hippocampus and plays a key role in modulating spatial learning and memory. Apart from its role in memory and learning, zinc has also been shown to boost your immune response and strengthen your immune defence.

    The added Vitamin D3 helps in keeping memory thus boosting your ability to remember, vitamin D receptors are abundant throughout the central nervous system (CNS), especially in the hippocampus, a region of the brain that plays an essential role in the consolidation of information and the regulation of both short- and long-term memory. Additionally, vitamin D3 has great neuroprotective properties which aid in memory loss and poor cognition associated with aging and neuronal damage.

    Vitamin C is a vital antioxidant molecule in the brain, low vitamin C levels have been linked to an increased risk of memory and thinking disorders like dementia while high vitamin C levels have been shown to possess a memory protective effect.

  • My 9-year-old daughter is on methylphenidate (Ritalin/Concerta) for her attention deficit disorder (ADD) but is still battling to concentrate. Can she still take NeuroVance Focus and if so, how will she benefit from it?

    Yes, NeuroVance Focus can be taken in combination with methylphenidate by children over the age of 7. The mechanisms of action of the two are different (i.e. NeuroVance Focus versus methylphenidate), so the risk for possible drug interactions should be minimal when used in conjunction.

    No.  Although the recommended dosage for NeuroVance Focus for adults is 2 sachets once a day with meals, many individuals find that they respond better to higher dosages of up to 4 sachets a day. However, there is an increased risk of suffering zinc overdose side effects (which are usually observed at dosages of above 80mg a day taken over a long period of time, side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, metallic taste, kidney and stomach damage).

  • What is burnout?

    Burnout is an advanced state of physical and mental exhaustion commonly triggered by the long-term involvement in emotionally demanding situations. Burnout leads to a complex set of emotions which include resentment, a sense of futility, feeling trapped and seeing no future. Although stress plays a role in its development, burnout differs in the sense that it lowers levels of hope, optimism, and confidence. Burnout can take you past the point of caring what happens, not a good place to be for many reasons. Regular use of NeuroVance Focus may prevent burnout.

  • Seeing that NeuroVance Focus combats stress, will it make me drowsy?

    NeuroVance Focus in itself should not cause sleeplessness as it contains no stimulants. However, if taken in high dosages by individuals already prone to sleeplessness, NeuroVance Focus may aggravate the sleeplessness.  In these cases, we recommend that NeuroVance Focus should not be taken after 17:00 in the afternoon. NeuroVance Focus is unlikely to make you drowsy as it does not suppress the central nervous system (CNS).

  • I have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), can I still take NeuroVance Focus?

    Yes, you can. NeuroVance Focus is not contraindicated in irritable bowel syndrome.  Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS, or spastic colon) is a symptom-based diagnosis characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits. The exact cause is not yet established, but it is believed that chronic stress may aggravate irritable bowel syndrome.  NeuroVance Focus may therefore in some cases even improve the severity and/or frequency of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms through the alleviation of chronic stress. You can combine NeuroVance Focus with FlamLeve to combat the inflammation caused by irritable bowel syndrome.
