How can L-Dopa and Vitamin E improve your quality of life?
The secret of AtremoPlus
The benefits of taking L-Dopa and vitamin E together are many. L-dopa is an amino acid, a precursor to dopamine, which helps increase dopamine levels in the brain to improve motor function, mood, concentration and attention. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from free radical damage and oxidative stress. Together, these two active ingredients can help improve overall well-being and vitality, especially cognitive and motor functions.

L-Dopa and Cognitive Function
1 in 8 adults over 60 years of age report increasing confusion or memory loss. L-dopa may help to improve mental clarity, concentration, alertness and reduce mental fatigue. It may also help improve memory and cognitive performance. With regular use, L-dopa can help improve mental and cognitive performance and overall well-being.
L-Dopa and Motor Functions
It is widely recognized that physical activity has many benefits for both the body and the mind. Unfortunately, 1 in 4 adults do not achieve the levels of physical activity recommended by experts. This is especially true for people with dopamine deficiency, as dopamine plays a key role in both motivation and motor functions such as dynamism, speed, fluidity of movement and balance. A lack of dopamine can lead to phenomena such as rigidity, tremors, slowness of movement, cramps, loss of fine motor skills, lack of facial expression, imbalances and falls, and sometimes even an involuntary blockage in movement called freezing.
People with severe dopamine deficiency may also experience speech problems, sometimes with a monotone voice and difficulty forming words and making themselves understood, regularly accompanied by excessive salivation.
L-Dopa can provide extra energy and help stimulate the motivation to perform essential physical activities to maintain and improve motor function.
L-Dopa and well-being
The dopamine molecule is often called the "happy molecule" because of its essential role in regulating our emotions and pleasure. Low levels of dopamine are associated with symptoms such as stress, anxiety, depression and circadian rhythm disturbances with sleep problems and decreased sleep recovery. L-Dopa helps to increase dopamine levels in the brain, which can help improve sleep quality, mood and mental well-being. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the links between higher dopamine levels and feelings of pleasure and reward, contributing to a better quality of life and greater personal satisfaction.
L-Dopa and Energy
Dopamine is an incredibly powerful hormone that can provide us with energy, strength, and motivation. It is released in greater amounts when we experience pleasure or success, and it helps us stay motivated and full of life. Dopamine also helps regulate our moods and emotions, giving us the drive and determination to keep going and accomplish our tasks. Dopamine deficiency can lead to low energy, sometimes chronic fatigue, apathy, low mood, or feeling unmotivated.
Fortunately, there are ways to increase dopamine levels in the brain. A healthy lifestyle and a good diet can help. If there is a temporary or significant structural deficiency, it may be appropriate to take L-dopa, a precursor to dopamine. Supplementing with L-dopa can help increase dopamine levels for those suffering from dopamine deficiency, thereby increasing energy levels and helping to boost motivation and mood.

The benefits of vitamin E and other active ingredients contained in the Vicia Faba plant:
Vitamin E, an essential vitamin not produced by the human body
Our body undergoes throughout its existence multiple attacks, including one very important which is considered one of the main reasons for aging and degeneration of the body: oxidative stress.
The older we get, the more complicated our ability to fight oxidative stress becomes for the body which deteriorates and is less and less able to maintain an oxidative balance. Free radicals take over and damage cells and tissue groups. Chronic inflammation is often linked to excessive oxidative stress which is associated with pain and degeneration processes.
Vitamin E, belongs to the group of antioxidant active ingredients that have the ability to deactivate free radicals and thus reduce oxidative stress. This claim has been approved by the EFSA (European Food Safety Administration) on the basis of scientific literature for food supplements. This protective function of Vitamin E helps to preserve the substance of our body and to slow down the destruction process related to oxidative stress.
In AtremoPlus® the concentration of vitamin E of a natural origin is 12mg/ 5g. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin E is set at 12 mg of alpha-tocopherol per day, in its natural form.
Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that is well assimilated in its natural form
AtremoPlus wants to offer a natural and high quality solution, which is why the choice of vitamin E of natural origin was an obvious one.
Naturally occurring alpha-tocopherol is well absorbed and can enter the cells where the body needs it. Scientific studies suggest that the body absorbs the natural form of vitamin E better than the synthetic form*.
The other active ingredients contained in the Vicia Faba plant:
The natural mix of vitamins, minerals, flavanoids, carotenoids, amino acids, polyphenols and phytosterols naturally contained in the Vicia Faba plant has its importance, even if the concentrations of each of these active ingredients does not allow to display them on the product label. Each of these elements is however beneficial to our body and many scientific studies testify to this. We also know that some of these active ingredients support each other for a better assimilation. For example, it is well known that magnesium is more metabolizable for the body if we administer it with Vitamin B6. The Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling and his "Institute Micronutrient Information Center on vitamins and minerals " testifies to the importance of these synergies of active ingredients.
The polyphenols contained in Vicia Faba, for example, slow down the transformation of L-Dopa and thus favour a better assimilation of L-Dopa through the brain barrier, an essential function for the organism to benefit from the active ingredient of L-Dopa.
