Noted naturopathic pediatrician, Jared Skowron has used his experience in clinical practice to fine-tune this unique formula. Designed to support methylation, neurotransmitter synthesis, and calm the brain, Metabolic® Maintenance Spectrum Awakening contains a blend of activated B vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to support optimal nervous system functioning, normal mood, and emotional well-being. Now with higher levels of GABA (750 mg/2 scoops), an inhibitory neurotransmitter researched for its role in normal neurodevelopment, and methylcobalamin (1,000 mcg/2 scoops), the active, methylated form of B-12. B-12 and L-methylfolate are essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and participate in key methylation reactions. 5-HTP is an immediate precursor to serotonin, a reaction catalyzed by B-6. Magnesium affects serotonin receptors and zinc influences brain homeostasis. L-Theanine, found in green tea, reduces neuronal overstimulation. Taurine has been added for its neuroprotective properties. This formula is easily mixed into food or drinks. Order your bottle today!

What is Spectrum Awakening?
Designed by noted naturopathic pediatrician, Jared Skowron, Spectrum Awakening is a unique nutritional formula that supports methylation, neurotransmitter synthesis, and calming of the brain. Spectrum Awakening contains a blend of activated B vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to support optimal nervous system functioning, normal mood, and emotional well-being. It contains a higher dose of calming neurotransmitter GABA (750 mg/2 scoops) and methylcobalamin (1000 mcg/2 scoops), the active, methylated form of B-12 compared to previous formulations. It also contains magnesium, zinc, L-theanine, and taurine. This updated formula no longer contains vitamin E, resulting in a soy-free product, appropriate for those with allergies.
How Does Spectrum Awakening Work?
- Vitamin B-12 and L-methylfolate are essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and participate in key methylation reactions. In fact, B vitamins (folate, B-6, and B-12) are all involved in methylation, which is necessary for the production of monoamine neurotransmitters, phospholipids, and nucleotides in the brain. Multiple studies have shown that folate and vitamin B-6 levels in the blood are significantly, positively correlated with test scores for several domains of cognitive and neurophysiological function. B-6 is also known to catalyze the reaction that produces serotonin from its precursor 5-HTP (another component included in this blend). Serotonin levels have been shown to increase in response to 5-HTP and vitamin B-6.
- Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. By binding the GABA receptor, GABA inhibits the “fight-or-flight’ mechanisms of the mammalian neuromuscular system in response to environmental stressors, thereby promoting calm and a reduced stress level. GABA also plays a role in the development of healthy, normal neurons and synapse formations in the immature, developing brain. Studies show that GABA release in the brain is enhanced with an increase in zinc availability.
- Magnesium is responsible for the biochemical action of many enzymes and reactions within the body, but unfortunately, magnesium deficiency is quite prevalent. Studies have shown a protective effect of Magnesium from ischemic damage to the brain and an inhibitory effect on the release of the stress hormone, norepinephrine. Magnesium is known to balance cellular Ca levels, regulating cell signaling pathways and neurotransmission.
- Taurine, a sulfur-containing, semi-essential amino acid, is required in a certain abundance for the normal development of the central nervous system (CNS), calcium modulation, membrane stabilization, reproduction, and immunity. L-Theanine, also an amino acid, has been shown in double-blind placebo studies to attenuate sympathetic nervous system responses to acute stressors (i.e., reduced heart rate and salivary production of immunoglobulin A).
