What is Nunzia?

Welcome to a form of cognitive rejuvenation and stress relief that has no known side effects, no addictive properties, is less toxic than Aspirin, has no cross-reaction to Alcohol, and therefore, no negative side effects on the liver or other vital organs.

Many neurodivergent people and individuals with mental disorders become familiar with the unfortunate trial and error "shot-gun" approaches towards finding proper medications, as well as some common medications seeming more like "chemical straitjackets" than paths towards health and wellness.

Unlike psychiatric medications, scientists at California Biotech formulated Nunzia™ with a unique blend of herbal Ingredients (including adaptogenic herbs such as Rhodalia Rosea Root and Ashwagandha Root) that naturally and safely adapt their functions within the body based upon the specific needs of each individual.  The symptoms of cognitive issues and anxiety-based disorders manifest from complex neural pathways that often arise from imbalanced levels of glutamate (the brain’s most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter) within the Hippocampus (a sea-horse shaped area of the brain where memories connect to emotions). [1,2,3,4,5,6]  By promoting balance within the Hippocampus, it is our goal to provide alleviation from the many negative and sometimes debilitating symptoms of cognitive issues and anxiety-based disorders*.  

Several studies indicate that Nunzia may have helped individuals by improving their memory, fine motor skills, attention spans, and speech abilities. We aim to empower people by easing their restlessness, anxieties, compulsions, and low moods so they may instead nurture their creativity, focus, attention, behavioral flexibility, cognitive speed, and memory*.

Nunzia™ offers new beginnings to everyone.
One life at a time.

  • Fitness
  • Yoga

What is glutamate and why is keeping it balanced important?

Glutamate is the most abundant and major excitatory neurotransmitter in our brain and central nervous system, and can be found within the intersections of multiple metabolic pathways.  A basic way to understand the function of an excitatory neurotransmitter is to think of it as a light switch.   Basically, an excitatory neurotransmitter increases the likelihood that the neuron it acts upon will have an action potential (also referred to as a nerve impulse).  When an action potential occurs, the nerve fires, which is comparable to a light switch turning on when a circuit is completed.  Once neurons fire, a message can then be disseminated throughout the neural circuit.  More than half of the brain’s synapses release glutamate making it the main neurotransmitter that is utilized for neural circuit communication. [8]

Since glutamate is the primary molecule that promotes neuronal excitation, it is therefore the key mediator of cognition, emotions, memory, behavior, sensory information, and motor coordination. [7]  It is additionally significantly related to the activity of most other neurotransmitter systems such as serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which—when imbalanced—are cited to be linked with cognitive impairments as well as mood and anxiety disorders. [3,4,5,6]

As is the case with most everything in the body, it is vital that glutamatergic communications are in balanced concentrations as inadequate concentrations can result in faulty communications and excesses can be neurotoxic and lead to neuron and neural network damage. [7]  Glutamatergic communication is especially critical in brain regions such as the hippocampus and cortex for healthy cognitive function and emotional stability. [3,5,6,7] 

Nunzia™ was developed to aid in balancing the production of glutamate within the Hippocampus to protect neurons against damage and ultimately ease numerous cognitive or mental health issues that can arise from such imbalances*.









WHY FOCUS ON THE HIPPOCAMPUS?

Within the limbic system—our so-called “emotional brain” that regulates motivation, emotion, learning, and memory—rests the hippocampus, a distinctively curved sea-horse-shaped region of the brain.  It has crucial roles in cognitive functions and also mediates emotions within the limbic system. [5]  This makes sense when you take a close look at the hippocampus, as it can be further divided into three hippocampal compartments: the dorsal, intermediate, and—most importantly for our purposes—the ventral.  While the dorsal is mainly responsible for cognitive functions such as memory, the ventral is linked to stress, emotion, and outward expressions (affect). [2]  The intermediate has partly overlapping characteristics with these neighbors.  Since the hippocampus is the brain’s source of forming new memories that connect to emotions and senses, it is not surprising that it has been found to play a major role in maintaining cognitive health as well as regulating affective states, particularly the regulation of anxiety states.
