Amino Acid Science
Product Safety and Efficacy
Medical Foods are a special category of therapeutic agents regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Medical Food ingredients are derived from the GRAS list (Generally Recognized As Safe) and used in the dietary management of diseases that are associated with distinctive nutritional requirements, based on recognized scientific principles, and established by medical evaluation. Patients are required to be under the ongoingsupervision of a physician when taking Medical Foods.
Physician Therapeutics' medical foods are formulated using the patented process, Targeted Cellular Technology. This technology facilitates the rapid cellular uptake and utilization of amino acids and nutrients, improving the metabolic efficiency of neurotransmitter synthesis, thereby reducing the quantity of amino acids needed to optimize neurotransmitter function. The use of Targeted Cellular Technology also ensures that the appropriate amounts of neurotransmitter precursors are delivered to specific neurons with the appropriate timing. As such, Targeted Cellular Technology synchronizes the availability of the precursor supply with the fluctuating demand for neurotransmitters.
