Trepadone is a proprietary formulation of of amino acids and other dietary factors to support induction, maintenance, and enhancement of the specific neurotransmitter
activity involved in the physiology of JD. The formulation consists of Glucosamine Sulphate, Chondroitine Sulphate, L-Histidine HCL, Whey Protein Isolate, Omega 3 EFA
(from Fish Oil), Grape Seed Extract, Cocoa Extract, and Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) in specific proportions. These ingredients fall into the classification of Generally
Recognized as Safe (GRAS) as defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). A GRAS
substance is distinguished from a food additive on the basis of the common knowledge about the safety of the substance for its intended use. The standard for an ingredient
to achieve GRAS status requires not only technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, but also general recognition of safety through widespread usage and agreement
of that safety by experts in the field. Many ingredients have been determined by the FDA to be GRAS, and are listed as such by regulation, in Volume 21 Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR) Sections 182, 184, and 186. Whey Protein Isolate contains all 22 amino acids essential for human metabolism including tryptophan, arginine and
Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and are GRAS listed as they have been safely ingested by humans for thousands of years. The formulations of the amino
acids in Trepadone are equivalent to those found in the usual human diet. Patients with pain and inflammation of the joints may require an increased amount of certain
amino acids that cannot be obtained from normal diet alone. Tryptophan, for example, is an obligatory amino acid. The body cannot make tryptophan and must obtain
tryptophan from the diet. Tryptophan is needed to produce serotonin. Serotonin is required to reduce pain. Patients with pain and inflammation of the joints have altered
