Frequently Asked Questions
ProdromeNeuro contains the plasmalogen building blocks for neurons that make up gray matter. Neurons are cells that process and transmit information in the body. These plasmalogens commonly become deficient with age.
ProdromeGlia contains the plasmalogen building blocks for glial cells that make up white matter. Glia are cells that surround, support, and protect neurons. These plasmalogens commonly decrease with inflammation.
Or as Dr. Goodenowe explains: ProdromeGlia tunes the signal, and ProdromeNeuro turns up the volume!
The ProdromeScan Blood Test will tell you if you are deficient in the ProdromeNeuro plasmalogens, the ProdromeGlia plasmalogens, or both. However, you do not need to take the blood test first! The body uses up plasmalogens as powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory molecules. Research shows that most individuals become deficient in plasmalogens with age.
Without taking the ProdromeScan Blood Test, you can try either product. Many people take ProdromeNeuro in the morning and ProdromeGlia in the evening each day
ProdromeNeuro is reported to have a slight stimulatory effect while ProdromeGlia has a calming, focus effect.
The other plasmalogen products offered on Amazon are purified from animal sources and have a very low concentration of plasmalogens: One product has 0.5mg of plasmalogen per 1 capsule (and 30mg of plasmalogen per bottle) and the other product on Amazon has 4mg of plasmalogen per one capsule (and 240mg per bottle). Compare that to our product which has 900mg per serving and 27,000mg per bottle! Our product has more plasmalogens in just one serving than the others have in the entire bottle.
Also, ProdromeNeuro and ProdromeGlia are plasmalogen precursors scientifically designed by Dr. Goodenowe for maximum absorption and bioavailability - they bypass gut degradation and rapidly replenish plasmalogen levels in the body.
You can take ProdromeNeuro and ProdromeGlia at any time of day. They can be taken with or without food. They can be taken with any other supplements.
