With over 15 years of clinical success, multiple clinical trials supporting efficacy, and a long track record of safety, Theramine is the heart smart choice for the long term dietary management of chronic pain.

Targeted Nutrition for Chronic Pain

Theramine has been the subject of two double-blind, multicenter clinical trials. In both trials, Theramine was proven to be effective as both a standalone, and adjunct therapy  for the long term dietary management of pain.  In clinical studies, subjects taking Theramine demonstrated a significant reduction  in  levels of the inflammatory markers CRP and IL-6 . *

Chronic Pain is a disease of the nervous system, altering nutrient, amino acid and neurotransmitter metabolism. Over the past decade, scientific research has focused on the underlying physiologic changes created by chronic pain.  Research has revealed that addressing specific amino acid and nutrient deficiencies using the dietary intervention Theramine can reduce the inflammatory markers C- Reactive Protein, and Interleukin-6 while improving the production of the neurotransmitters responsible for dampening the frequency, and volume of pain signals moving throughout the central nervous system.
