Does taking Brain Power Sours aid in diminishing OCD?
Q: I ordered brain power sours a few months ago but have not given them to my son yet. I want to know if there is any evidence of it aiding in diminishing OCD.
A: I have not had anyone report to me that taking Brain Power Sours has diminished OCD, however, tyrosine & GCP (found in this product) can be helpful for mental focus.
Here is an abstract to an interesting new 2011 study on nutrients that may also be helpful with OCD:
This reports: “Emerging clinical evidence also appears to tentatively support certain nutrients and plant-based interventions with known active constituents which modulate these pathways: N-acetlycysteine, myo-inositol, glycine, and milk thistle (Silybum marianum). The serotonin precursor tryptophan is unlikely to be of use in treating OCD while 5-HTP may possibly be a more effective precursor strategy.”
