The nervous system is composed of three major divisions: the brain and spinal cord, together called the central nervous system (CNS), and the peripheral nervous system of which peripheral nerves constitute a major part. The nervous system is the ultimate coordinator of all bodily functions and its proper function is of cardinal importance for healthy daily living.

The nerve cells, called neurons are the main players in charge of performing nervous system functions. Neurons are interconnected by their axons, long fiber extensions responsible for transmitting information in the form of electrical signals. Neurons receive signals from organs of the body and sense the environment. After processing that information they coordinate the proper response of the various body organs.

Neurons, both in the CNS and the peripheral nervous system, are vulnerable to alterations in health-related conditions. Neurons may succumb and die as a result of lethal genetic changes or harsh environmental insults resulting in permanent functional alterations or complete loss of functions. In other words, functional recovery ultimately depends on nerve cell resilience and capability to sustain and recover.

Clearly, maintaining nerve cell resilience is mandatory for healthy nervous system function. One way this may be achieved is by providing fortifying nutrients directed at activating the cell's own molecular mechanisms that underlie the self-healing power and survival capabilities of neurons.

In ground-breaking laboratory experiments, Dr. Gad Gilad and Varda Gilad the founders of our company, discovered in 1994 that the unique molecule agmatine is endowed with neuroprotective properties for nerve cell survival.

Their discovery led to clinical trials, which demonstrated that dietary G-Agmatine® (Gilad&Gilad's trademarked brand of agmatine) is a safe and most effective nutraceutical ingredient leading to resilient nerve functions and a better health-related quality of life (graphic illustration), for which normal peripheral nerve functions are fundamental (Keynan et al., Pain Medicine 11:356-368 2010).

For further health-related information, please refer to the LINKS section

Peripheral nerves - the motor, sensory and autonomic nerves, connect the brain and spinal cord (i.e., the cental nervous system) to muscles, skin and internal organs. Normal peripheral nerve activity is critical for proper sensations such as pain, touch, cold, heat etc., sense of balance and motor (muscle) performance.

The structure of peripheral nerves may be compared to a cable containing numerous axons. Signals propagate from the body organs to the spinal cord and brain and then back along these axons.

Protecting Healthy Nerve Functions - Clearly, protecting normal activity of axons (termed axonoprotection), and their parent neurons (i.e., neuroprotection) is fundamental for healthy bodily functions. Further information may be found at: http://www.ninds.nih.gov.

For example, pain sensations are often the consequence of direct damage to either the central or the peripheral nervous system, but are more common when the peripheral nervous system is involved.

Various health-related factors can jeopardize peripheral nerve function. Some are more localized or focal, affecting only few nerves, but other factors are more pervasive, influencing nerves throughout the body.

An example of focal factors' importance, is proper spine-nerve structure/function relationships, which are critical for healthy sciatic nerve functions. Challenges to proper functions of this nerve, which innervates the leg and foot, are highly prevalent, affecting 2% to 3% of the population. An interesting anecdote is the description by the novelist and Nobel laureate Hermann Hesse of coping with his own sciatic nerve functions in his novel Kurgast (1925). Another common example is the importance of proper structure of the carpal tunnel in the wrist for healthy functions of the median nerve of the forearm and hand. Yet another example is proper function of the facial nerve (the 7th cranial nerve), which controls the tongue's sensory functions and the muscles in charge of facial expressions. Further information may be found at: http://www.acatoday.org.

An image of information flow in the nervous system (Rene Descartes 17th century) 
Health-related predicaments carrying widespread threats to healthy nerve functions throughout the body include: • Metabolic functions such as: glucose or amino acid metabolism. • Nutritional requirements such as: low vitamin B12 intake or vitamin B6 surplus. • Infections. • Toxic drugs. • Heredity. • Environmental toxins. Further information may be found at: http://www.aan.com/ and http://www.painfoundation.org.

Overweight is a pertinent example of a widespread predicament that precipitates not only focal changes, such as spine-nerve structure/function relationships, but also general metabolic functions, such as control of glucose metabolism, thus posing a direct threat to proper nerve functions throughout the body.

Maintaining healthy metabolism -Healthy metabolism is critical for proper nerve functions. 
Maintaining healthy metabolism is a dynamic process regulated according to varying energy demands of organs throughout the body in response to changes in the external and internal environments. This fundamental process, termed homeostasis, was discovered in the mid 1800s by Claud Bernard, the father of modern physiology. For example, imbalance of glucose (sugar) homeostasis can lead to dire changes in healthy nerve functions.

Such changes in health-related circumstances have characteristic effects on nerve functions including changes in pain, temperature and touch sensations and in nerve-dependent muscle strengthFurther information may be found at: http://www.painfoundation.org and http://www.painmed.org/patientcenter/main.aspx.

Unfortunately, more than 20 million people in the United States alone cope everyday with circumstances that pose great challenges to normal peripheral nerve functions. The Gilad's findings, therefore, have wide implications for a multitude of people worldwide whose need for an  effective neuroprotective dietary supplement to support their nerve resilience remained unmet until now.

Note: Animals are also susceptible to various harsh circumstances that challenge healthy nerve functions. These are common in companion animals such as dogs, cats and horses. 
exclusive For-Nerve-HealthTM nutraceutical supplements contain G-Agmatine® and present first-of-kind products now available to fulfill these unmet needs.

Discovery - Agmatine is a metabolite of the amino acid arginine, discovered in 1910 by the Nobel laureate Albrecht Kossel. It is naturally produced by decarboxylation of arginine and therefore, sometimes termed decarboxylated arginine. Agmatine is widespread in nature and is found in microbial organisms, plants and animals.

Presence in Foodstuff - Agmatine is present in foodstuff derived from plants, fish, and meat. It is found in relatively high levels in the gut and production by gut-dwelling bacteria (microbiota) is considered an important agmatine source. Agmatine sulfate, the commonly used salt form of agmatine, is absorbed by the gut and distributed in the body including the nervous system. Like with arginine, which is a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid, depending on their health status, individuals who have poor nutrition or poor metabolic conditions may be advised to increase their intake of agmatine.

Protective Effects - Laboratory experiments showed that treatment with agmatine exerts beneficial effects on various bodily functions. Seminal studies in the early 1920s demonstrated the mild reduction of blood glucose by agmatine. Further scientific research however, was renewed only years later. Of specific interest, is the substantial body of evidence beginning in the 1990s, demonstrating the beneficial effects of agmatine on the nervous system. These include the breakthrough discovery of neuroprotection by the Gilads and discoveries by others of proper control of pain sensations and of behavioral response to stress.

Mild reductions in blood glucose and in blood pressure and heart rate, are additional beneficial effects that may be contributory to agmatine's salutary effects on the nervous system. Additionally, agmatine may exert cardio-protective and kidney protective effects.

Importantly, results of our clinical trials, published in Pain Medicine (Kaynan et al., 2010) demonstrated that dietary G-Agmatine® (Gilad&Gilad's proprietary brand of agmatine) is safe (lacking adverse side effects) and most effective for proper sciatic nerve functions and for healthy spine-nerve structure/function interactions, thus affording a better health-related quality of life. --Remarkably, the 2010 publication of the clinical trials coincided with the centennial of agmatine discovery by Albrecht Kossel in 1910, and established G-Agmatine® as a safe and most effective nutraceutical.

Recent studies further confirm agmatine lack of toxicity (Gilad and Gilad, 2013) and long-term safety (Gilad and Gilad, 2014). And moreover, no adverse events have been reported in post-marketing surveillance of thousands of people who are taking the recommended high dose of agmatine (2.67 gram/day) in the form of AgmaSet® capsules continuously for extended periods of time (years).

Molecular Mechanisms of Action - The beneficial effects of agmatine occur by its interaction with and modulation of multiple molecular targets, which are of specific importance for proper nervous system functions (Piletz et al., 2013). These include: (A) modulation of several neurotransmitters - molecules that transmit nerve signals [notably: nicotine, glutamate (NMDA), and adrenaline]; (B) blockade of membrane channels that transport key salts into cells (notably: potassium and calcium); (C) regulation of nitric oxide (NO) production, a ubiquitous regulatory molecule; (D) modulation of polyamines metabolism, known neuroprotective molecules; (E) inhibition of processes that destroy extracellular proteins.

--Agmatine acts as a molecular shotgun targeting multiple molecular mechanisms involved in promoting healthy nervous system functions and is considered the ultimate neuro-modulator.

Present Reserach Efforts - Gilad&Gilad is presently engaged in conducting more clinical trials to substantiate the effectiveness of G-Agmatine® in other indications associated with maintenance of healthier nerve functions.
