orthomolecular medicine

Orthomolecular Medicine was coined by the late two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling,

which he defined as “the right molecules in the right amounts”. It aims to make the necessary corrections before damage is done and to provide the body with the right tools to make repairs. This form of alternative medicine focuses on the body’s need for vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids in particular amounts to achieve results. Family Nutraceuticals has used Orthomolecular Medicine as the inspiration for our products to allow your own body to achieve its health potential with the ingredients that Mother Nature intended.

THE KEY TO A BRIGHTER MIND IS NOT FOUND IN A PRODUCT THAT SIMPLY GETS YOUR SYSTEM REVVED UP WITH THE USE OF STIMULANTS. It is found in a formulation that is specifically designed with multiple factors in mind. Production/regulation of key neurotransmitters, increased blood flow for optimal oxygenation/ nutrient delivery, and central nervous system protection/health.

The brain is constantly being attacked by various factors of our lifestyle including environmental pollution, internal toxicity, stress and a lack of proper diet and nutrients. Cognizin citicoline may help combat the ravages of these effects by stimulating the nervous system process to maintain optimum sustainability of the molecular environment of the brain enabling us to retain our ability to think cognitively and improve our memories.

  • Clinical trials have shown Cognizin is effective for combating the effects of certain neurodegenerative processes, thereby allowing for maintenance of optimal memory function.*
  • Scientific studies have indicated that Cognizin is an effective aid for maintaining normal cognitive function with aging.*
  • Additional studies point to the ability of Cognizin to act as an antioxidant in preserving normal healthy visual function.*
  • Cognizin protects neural tissue from the ravages of free radical damage.*

Definition of Citicoline

Citicoline is the generic name for synthetic CDP-choline (cytidine diphosphate choline), an organic molecule produced endogenously and found in all living cells. CDP-choline is a precursor for the synthesis of phospholipids that are essential constituents of cell membranes, including phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidyl-ethanolamine. Because cell membranes have a very high turnover rate, these phospholipids must be continuously synthesized to ensure adequate function of cells.

I’ve been on the market for a brain formula for quite some time. I’ve tried several, but none worked as well as Powerful Mind. Increased focus, concentration and general clarity are the things that I value most from this product. As a small business owner with lots on my mind, I appreciate that my doctor recommended this product to me to help me stay focused on the work at hand. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for an awesome brain formula.

Got a sample from a friend and this stuff is amazing.


Kasia M.

Hi, my name is Kasia. I’m a graduate student here at Stanford University. I started using PM a couple of months ago when I just looking for a solution to help me be more focused and help me get my school work quicker and more efficiently. I started to notice that I was just getting really reliant on coffee to get me through the day. I would drink 3-5 cups a day and I knew that wasn’t good and I didn’t want to continue doing that but at the same time I had this really large work load and I needed to get a lot of things done. I was really happy when I came across Powerful Mind and I figured I’d give it a try. Within a few weeks I definitely noticed an increase in energy. I didn’t need as much coffee as I used to. I eventually actually phased out coffee all together. I wasn’t getting burnt out quickly, I was able to focus more, I got my assignments done, I was able to multi task and be efficient with my time and not have the issues I was having before. It’s great because it works with your body, knowing I’m not putting any harsh chemicals in my body, natural ingredients that help you help your body make the most of what it already has. I definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking to get more energy, to be more focused, to get a lot more things done in a day and do not want to be reliant on things like caffeine or other pills that have artificial additives and things like that. I think it’s a great product and I highly recommend it.

I am a one woman band and I do everything from top to bottom, bottom to top and there’s a lot of things to memorize and do and remember and I’ll tell you, it’s over whelming. It wasn’t until I started trying Powerful Mind that I became clearer, which helped me focus, which helped me get things done, and move my business forward. It’s a great, great tool in my life. Thank you, Powerful Mind.

Powerful Mind works. One year ago, I started using this product to increase my energy and help my memory. I’ve definitely noticed a huge difference. Since I’ve started using it, I’ve noticed that I can focus a lot longer and my energy level is so high. Being a student, you definitely need those two things. I definitely recommend this product.
