SynaQuell™ By Thorne - Brain Support For The Contact Sport Athlete
Old formula: SynaQuell™ is brain support for the contact sport athlete.*
Formulated to support brain health by enhancing cellular energy production and encouraging a healthy balance of inflammatory cytokines*
Good nutrition is essential for healthy brain function. The brain needs nutrients to provide energy to fuel the nerves, support neurotransmitter production, and protect against oxidative stress. That is why diet and supplementation are so important, both before and after participating in contact sports.
SynaQuell is formulated with the best-researched nutrients that support the brain, particularly for individuals involved in contact sports.*
Key ingredients in SynaQuell and their benefits:
Ketones, such as BHB, provide an alternate fuel source for both injured and uninjured brains.*
BCAAs are important precursors to the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.*
DHA, an essential fatty acid found in high concentrations in membranes of the brain’s nerve cells, supports a healthy balance of inflammatory cytokines in the brain.*
A closer look at the ingredients in SynaQuell
Ketones, such as BHB, supply 70 percent of the brain’s energy needs – and do so much more efficiently than glucose.*
Ketones provide an alternate fuel source for both the injured and uninjured brain.*
BHB is neuroprotective because it increases mitochondrial biogenesis, which in turn increases ATP (energy production) in brain/nerve cells.*
BHB enhances cerebral blood flow.*
BHB helps resist the damaging effects of oxidative stress.*
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs):
BCAAs include leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
They readily cross the blood-brain barrier.
BCAAs and their metabolites have been shown to decline after even mild impact to the brain.
In the brain, BCAAs serve as important precursors to the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.*
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA):
Tests of the Omega-3 Index (the percentage of EPA and DHA in red blood cells) in college football athletes indicates insufficient levels of these important omega-3 fatty acids in this population.
DHA, which is found in high concentrations in the membranes of the brain’s nerve cells, supports a healthy balance of inflammatory cytokines in the brain.*
DHA supports cognitive function and learning ability.*
DHA is neuroprotective and supports healthy levels of brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF).*
Additional supportive nutrients
Two brain-protective antioxidants – NAC and reduced glutathione.*
Botanical extracts that support a healthy balance of inflammatory cytokines and healthy aging sirtuins – curcumin phytosome (Meriva®) and resveratrol.*
A neuroprotective vitamin and a neuroprotective mineral – riboflavin 5’-phosphate (active B2) and magnesium.*
Mix 1 scoop with at least 8 ounces of water two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research revealed that curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.
