Dr. Hawkins is also focused on developing novel treatments for neurotransmitter deficiencies, often associated with various mental health disorders in servicemen and women, as well as in the civilian population. In 2013, in response to many of his patients’ frustration with psychiatric medication side effects, he started to research potential herbal, plant-based and nutritional methods to help his patients obtain optimal brain functioning.
Dr. Hawkins has developed a clinically tested new natural OTC brain optimization supplement, called Advyndra. Advyndra® (pronounced ad-vin-druh) is a proprietary synergistic blend that was specifically developed to address cognitive deficits and neurotransmitter imbalances related to micronutrient, B vitamins, and amino acid deficiencies, as well as to potentially serve as a complementary option augmenting conventional prescription oral medications for depression and anxiety disorders. Advyndra has also showed some improvement in cognitive and mood functioning in former NFL athletes suffering from TBI. His second proprietary supplement, Serinytex® (pronounced sah-rhen-atex) was formulated as an herbal-amino acid supplement to support proper sleep architecture and restful sleep.
