The main issue with synthetic ingredients is that you don’t always get what you pay for. In reality, synthetic ingredients are well known for their low absorption, poor bioavailability, and the fact that they drain the body’s reserves of other minerals and vitamins (e.g., cofactors) required for proper absorption of other nutrients.
At BrainReference we recognize that dietary supplements can be the source of many allergic responses either due to cross-contamination with high-allergen compounds during the manufacturing process or because they incorporate ingredients obtained from high-risk allergenic foods (milk, eggs, or fish).
Companies with less integrity will use dangerous fillers as a “grease or lube” to aid in easier and faster production. Artificial dyes and colors are used to make supplements more appealing to the eye. Coatings are added to make capsules easier to swallow. How do these fillers impact your body and health?
Independent testing labs are not associated with the producing company, ingredients supplier, the company whose name appears on the product, or with the consumer. This means independent testing labs have no vested interest in the result of the testing and are less likely to “dry lab” or manipulate test results for self-serving reasons.

The product relaxes the stressed nerves, has no mentioned side effects, and is supposed to be suitable for both children and adults.

The combination remedy is a herbal product. Avena sativa or oat has soothing properties for the brain and nervous system, helps detoxification processes, calms anxiety, enhances the digestion process and increases fertility levels. Side effects reported include: sleeplessness, restlessness, increased heart rate and headaches.
Kali phosphoricum is a popular homeopathic nerve tonic, which regulates the brains activity and restores its state of equilibrium.
