Clinical Studies for Neuro C3

Previously named EMPowerplus

Scientific research has been showing that a new micronutrient formula is offering new hope in the lives of those who suffer with Mental and Mood disorders. Since 1996, scientific researchers and doctors in clinical practice have been studying the effects of EMPowerplus (also known as Q96 and TrueHope) on mental disorders such as bipolar disorder. Results have been very encouraging and significant. Dr. Bonnie Kaplan, a respected behavioral research scientist and one of the principal researchers on several of the published studies says, “If substantiated in controlled trials, the normalization of the mentally ill via nutrient supplementation would be the most significant breakthrough in the field of mental illness since the beginning of time.
