NeuroProtek® is a unique all natural
oral dietary supplement in a soft gel capsule. NeuroProtek® uses an
exclusive combination of flavonoids, based on the scientific research of Dr.
Theoharides M.D., PhD,. NeuroProtek® is formulated to maximize affects of
flavonoids while also overcoming any absorption obstacles. NeuroProtek®
contains the flavonoids: Luteolin, Quercetin, and Rutin. Unique to Algonot’s
formulations is olive kernel oil, a powerful anti-oxidant that is instrumental
in helping the body absorb and delivery the dry flavonoids found in each soft
NeuroProtek® is free of the following allergens: artificial colors or dyes, flavors or sweeteners, corn, eggs, fish, heavy metals, milk/casein, peanuts, preservatives, salt, shellfish, starch, sugar, tree nuts, wheat/gluten and yeast. Our ingredients are not obtained from beef or beef by-products.
Flavonoids are natural molecules found mostly in green plants and seeds. Unfortunately, our modern life diet contains progressively fewer flavonoids and those that are consumed are difficult to absorb because they do not dissolve in water. Under these conditions, the average person cannot consume enough to make a positive health difference. There are approximately 3,000 flavonoids. Of those, NeuroProtek® contains three:
Luteolin (> 95% Pure) is a nutrient from a class of naturally occurring molecules known as bioflavonoids. Luteolin was incorporated in this formula after published papers showed it is important in the body as a free radical scavenger.
Quercetin ( > 95% Pure)is a natural non-acidic
flavanoid. The quercetin used is NeuroProtek is obtained from the saphora
plant. Algonot decisively choose not to use the more common and less expensive
source of fava beans.
Rutin (> 95% Pure) is a glycoside of the flavonoid Quercetin. Like quercetin, rutin is extracted from the saphora plant and is a non-acidic natural flavonoid that adds additional anti-oxidant qualities. Rutin helps liberate quercetin in the intestine, making absorption easier. Rutin has been shown to be the strongest antioxidant in studies.
Olive Kernel Oil (Unprocessed, MicroFiltered) is a natural, potent low-acidic anti-oxidant. This unique oil (a lipid) plays an important role in NeuroProtek® as it is used to increase the absorbability of flavonoids. We use only virgin olive seed oil from the island of Crete, Greece.
Why the chosen flavonoids?
Flavonoids are naturally occurring compounds frequently found in green
plants and seeds. In powder form, whether taken as pills, tablets or hard
capsules, all flavonoids are difficult to absorb and are extensively
metabolized to inactive ingredients in the liver. In fact, less than 10% of
orally ingested flavonoids are absorbed. In addition, very few
flavonoids are beneficial; instead, many others such as morin show no activity,
while pycnogenol is weakly active (as compared to luteolin or quercetin) but
could cause liver toxicity.
As an additional consideration, the most common commercial source of the flavonoid quercetin is fava beans, which can be detrimental to blood cells in those of Mediterranean origin (15%), who lack the enzyme glucose-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD). Quercetin and its closely, structurally related flavonoids - rutin and luteolin, have potent anti-oxidant actions.
Can other preparations of the elect flavonoids be used?
There are about 3,000 flavonoids in nature and many impure flavonoids are sold under such names as
“bioflavonoids,” “citrus flavonoids,” “soy flavonoids,” or “pycnogenol.” Even those preparations claiming to
have only the select flavonoids, DO NOT specify either the source or the purity of the flavonoids. This problem is even worse given that many people could have reactions to the impurities, fillers or dyes.
The selection of specific beneficial flavonoids, as well as the source, purity and absorbability of those
flavonoids were taken into consideration in order to develop the most beneficial product with the least amount
of associated risk, NeuroProtek®.

Please confirm all dosage with your personal physician. Consumers should also be aware of the fact that other supplements containing e.g. curcumin, pycnogenol or grapefruit seed extract contain flavonoids that may interact with the flavonoids in NeuroProtek. In such cases, or when taking large doses of L-tryptophan, the dose of NeuroProtek should be decreased or other supplements discontinued.
