Theramine is a proprietary formulation of amino acids and other dietary factors to support induction, maintenance, and enhancement of the specific neurotransmitter
activity involved in the physiology of PD. The formulation consists of Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, Choline Bitartrate, Whey Protein Isolate (Milk), L-Arginine-HCL, L-HistidineHCL,
L-Glutamine, Theobromine, Griffonia Seed, Grape Seed, L-Serine, and Cinnamon. These ingredients fall into the classification of Generally Recognized as Safe
(GRAS) as defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). A GRAS substance is distinguished
from a food additive on the basis of the common knowledge about the safety of the substance for its intended use. The standard for an ingredient to achieve GRAS status
requires not only technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, but also general recognition of safety through widespread usage and agreement of that safety by experts
in the field. Many ingredients have been determined by the FDA to be GRAS, and are listed as such by regulation, in Volume 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)
Sections 182, 184, and 186.
