How does NeuroAid work on traumatic brain injury
healthydoc :

Hello and thank you for your question. NeuroAid is a natural supplement and is thought to prolong the longevity of the neurons that have been damaged during a stroke. As per the manufacturers NeuroAid reportedly reduces the chemical substances released by damaged neurons that cause damage to surrounding neurons. By preventing this damage, the supplement reportedly helps salvage neural tissue and prevents it from getting destroyed. These statements have not been verified by any randomized clinical trials and have not been evaluated by the FDA.


Does NeuroAid work like Citicoline (Zynapse)?

healthydoc :

Zynapse is more an intermediate. It acts to help build neuronal structure. NeuroAid is something different all together. It reportedly prevents damage after a brain injury. When a neuron is damaged it releases many lysozomal enzymes and cytokines. NeuroAid blocks this process from damaging neighboring neurons. Zynapse works by working as an intermediate and allows neurons to build.

healthydoc :

Zynapse helps build membranes while NeuroAid stops the membranes of neurons from becoming damaged from cytokines and free radicals that are released after neuronal injury.
