Without the nervous system nothing else happens.. no growth.. no Nitric oxide.. no increase in hormones.. no pump.. no workout.. no movement. Everything else is secondary to the firing of the nervous system. Without it you simply don’t grow, because you don’t move.

exercise, and support nervous system health and recovery.
My Pain Your Gain!
My brain was awakened to the utmost importance of the nervous system in August 2012. You see, I just completed and won the Light Heavy Class at the 2012 N.P.C MILE HIGH NATURAL BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIPS, and I was feeling great! But then, after a heavy leg day, I woke up with a shooting pain down my side; I did not know what it was. A couple days later I could not move my toes. Then when I was walking my foot would just drop to the ground. I tried exercising it, but no matter how hard I tried, I could not move my foot… It was paralyzed. This was a crushing blow to me.
This picture was taken the night before the show.
I went to the Doctor and he diagnosed me with 2 ruptured discs, L4-L5, L5-S1. The disc material had squished out and was sitting on the nerves that “operated” my right foot. You see, no matter how hard I worked out or wanted to get it to move, my foot just wouldn’t move. There were no nerve signals going to those muscles, my neuromuscular system was disconnected.. no signals no movement. The nerve started to “die off”, and even with all the material moved away from the disc, it could be a year before the nerve grew back. This sent me on a feverish pace to find supplements that could.
- Stimulate more nervous system activity
- Facilitate neuromuscular modulation during exercise
- Support re-growth of nervous tissue
The pain I went through with my injury was the impetus for NT Sciences™, (NT=Neurotransmitter). My pain your gain!

I am proud to say that as of today I am fully recovered, no surgery, but I have learned a great deal along the way.
