Living with chronic pain is daily battle. Some people are lucky to find a pain management protocol that works – for a time until they have to try something new. Others never manage to find a pain management plan that works. Opioids and NSAIDs may bring some relief, but there’s also the risk of addiction and other adverse side effects.
Theramine is different. It’s an alternative to prescription pain medications and NSAIDs, and it’s been clinically shown to bring pain relief.
What is Theramine?
Theramine is a medical food that’s amino acid based and manufactured by Physician Therapeutics.
It’s used in the dietary management of both inflammatory and pain disorders.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term “medical food,” you’re not alone. According to the FDA, a medical food is a “food which is to be consumed or administered enterally under the supervision of a physician and which is intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition for which distinctive nutritional requirements, based on recognized scientific principles, are established by medical evaluation.”
The regulation of medical foods is a mix of prescription and dietary supplements.
Why does this matter? Because it’s important to understand that Theramine isn’t just an ordinary supplement. It’s been doctor-recommended for over a decade.
It’s a drug-free product, and it works to tackle chronic pain at the root cause. It won’t just mask your symptoms like opioids and NSAIDs.
- It has had no reported side effects
- Is a safe alternative to opioids and NSAIDs
- Is 100% natural
- Is backed by multiple clinical trials
- Uses Targeted Cellular Technology
How Does It Work?
Theramine works by restoring balance to the nervous system. Using patented uptake absorption technology, Theramine works to restore amino acids and neurotransmitters the body uses for pain control.
When the nervous system is back in balance, it reduces pain.
Theramine was developed by pain management experts to resolve amino acid deficiencies in the body. Low levels of amino acids have been linked to certain chronic pain disorders.
Which amino acids are in Theramine, and does this product contain other ingredients?
Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)
GABA is both a neurotransmitter and an amino acid, and it works by blocking impulses between your nerve cells. When supplemented, GABA reduces the frequency and volume of pain signals.
The body converts choline bitartrate into acetylcholine, which offers a variety of brain benefits, such as:
- Slowing the progression of dementia
- Moderating pain signals
- Improving function of the nervous system
Acetylcholine helps facilitate the nervous system activities that quiet pain signals.
L-arginine is another amino acid that’s found naturally in fish, nuts, soy, red meat and whole grains. Studies have shown that supplementing this amino acid can improve nitric oxide production in the body.
Nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in managing inflammation and pain.
An amino acid that plays an important role in the nervous system. The body transforms L-glutamine into glutamic acid, glutamate and glutathione, a major antioxidant.
Along with the nervous system, L-glutamine supports the digestive system and immune system. In Theramine, L-glutamine is used as a neuron activator, to protect the stomach and lower inflammation.
Griffonia seed is a small, black seed derived from a plant that’s native to West and Central Africa. It contains the highest concentration of 5-HTP, the precursor to the synthesis of serotonin.
Serotonin is the feel-good neurotransmitter that regulates your sleep cycle, mood and appetite. How does it help with pain? It interacts with other compounds that are involved in pain sensation, such as endorphins and substance P.
One of the primary characteristics of fibromyalgia is disruption in serotonin metabolism. People with fibromyalgia often have significantly lower serotonin levels. Many people take Theramine for fibromyalgia.
L-serine is an amino acid that plays a role in the production of serotonin and d-serine as well as the production of healthy nerve cells. It’s a precursor to d-serine, which is crucial in the regulation of pain signals.
The L-arginine in Theramine helps boost nitric oxide levels, and cocoa activates the beneficial properties of nitric oxide. It works by helping boost pain relief and blood flow.
Cocoa also contains theobromine which is a short-term Adenosine inhibitor. Simply put, it helps keep your cells open for longer which gives neurotransmitters time to regulate pain signals.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract contains a high amount of polyphenols, flavonoids and antioxidants. All of these compounds have cellular protective properties as well as anti-inflammatory effects. In Theramine, grape seed extract helps keep the product working without losing its potency over time.
Cinnamon offers a variety of benefits. It helps stimulate appetite, reduce gas and spasms, and even has powerful antioxidant effects that protect against free radical damage.
It also helps move the other ingredients in Theramine to ensure the body absorbs and enjoys its benefits.
Hydrolyzed Whey Protein
This form of whey protein contains highly absorbable branched chain amino acids. Because nearly all of the lactose is removed from the protein, the body enjoys all of the benefits without any negative side effects associated with lactose.
Theramine Studies and Reviews
Theramine is backed by clinical research and studies which demonstrate its efficacy.
One randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study looked at whether medical foods could serve as an alternative therapeutic treatment for back pain. In 127 patients, the effects of Theramine on chronic back pain was comparable to low-dose ibuprofen.
At the end of the 28-day period, participants who took Theramine and Thermine with ibuprofen had significantly improved pain levels. The results of the study also showed higher levels of amino acid precursors associated with the neurotransmitters that regulate pain.
Theramine has been shown to be effective in the management of chronic pain. And because it doesn’t contain any drugs, there’s never a need to worry about addiction or adverse health effects.
