  • NADH: (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), NADH is a coenzyme present in all cells. Involved in cellular energy production and is necessary for cells to function properly. Thus, for its antioxidant properties, it is thought to help reduce free radicals.Because of its importance as a neurotransmitter, enhances memory, logic and thought. NADH supplements have been used to treat neuronal degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. The usual dose is 5 mg daily before breakfast.

Copper is necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system in the formation of hemoglobin and collagen.The deficiency can contribute to many physical shortcomings, as the appearance of anemia, cardiovascular disease, problems of the nervous system, high cholesterol, immune problems, problems in the pigmentation of the skin or hair thinning. If the copper deficiency is verified with medical tests, supplements should have to be provided.
