Sentra AM™

Sentra AM™ for the Medical Management of Cognitive Disorders

Sentra AM™ is a Medical Food designed to increase and maintain the production of acetylcholine by peripheral neurons and brain cells. Sentra AM™ contains choline and acetylcarnitine as precursors to acetylcholine production. Choline is an essential amino acid and choline deficiency leads to a number of disease states. The FDA allows a health claim for choline in the prevention of certain forms of liver disease. It is well recognized that defects of acetylcholine function are part of a number of disease states including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, chronic fatigue, memory disorders, neurotoxicity related to pesticides and other environmental toxins. Sentra AM™ is designed to support the production of acetylcholine.

Nutritional Deficiency Associated with Cognitive Disorders

Choline deficiency is associated with liver disease and cognitive disorders. The Institute of Medicine recommends at least 500 mg of choline per day for adults. Although choline deficiency is associated with cognitive and memory abnormalities in humans, the amounts of choline required to maintain cognitive function in humans must be individualized. The physician or other healthcare professional must assess the role of choline deficiency in cognitive disorders in individual patients.
