Patient 1 Treatment:
5-MTHF 1 mg once a day and a glass of water with one packet of a powdered drink mix that contains a propriety blend of vitamins, minerals, caffeine, other ingredients, and pterostilbene, a highly bioavailable form of resveratrol (an antioxidant) each morning. This was used as an alternative to prescription central nervous system stimulants such as Adderall, Vyvanse, Ritalin, etc.
Patient 1 Outcome:
After one month, the patient reported that he was feeling better than he’d ever felt before. “I have more confidence and I’m more productive at work.” He also shared that his focus was so much better that he was able to find a huge mistake made by someone else at work. His mood was greatly improved as was his relationship with his girlfriend. He stated he was sharper and more focused.

Initially, the patient was given a glass of water with half a packet of ATP Ignite™, a powdered drink mix that contains a propriety blend of vitamins, minerals, caffeine, other ingredients, and pterostilbene, a highly bioavailable form of resveratrol (an antioxidant) each morning. After one week, this dose was increased to a full packet in morning. After two weeks, the dose was increased to one and a half packets.
