How Can We Help?
EB-C3DR is an oral capsule classified as a medical food (a unique category regulated by the FDA). Medical foods address the metabolic deficiencies associated with diseases, including Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Medical foods are intended for use under medical supervision.
Metabolic deficiencies in the brain have been identified as an independent risk factor for memory loss, as they reduce the substances responsible for neuroprotection. The unique active ingredients in EB-C3DR provide necessary nutrients that support brain nourishment and protection.
What are the side effects with EB-C3DR? The active pharmaceutical ingredients in EB-C3DR are well tolerated, as well as allergen, gluten and dye free. The most common complaints include mild upset stomach. If you experience this, try taking the capsules with food, if the problem persists, consult your provider.
