Early brain exercise to a developing brain has significantly shown to improve intelligence as a child grows into an adult. At puberty stage, the ‘Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex’ (DLPFC) that covers the front part of the frontal lobe develops. This part of the brain impacts a teenager’s motivation, mood, and general emotion. Kids should have enough ‘brain food’ to aid brain exercise. As they grow into adolescence, the need for ‘brain food’ does not stop. (Source: Brain of 11-14 years old)
Why give Laminine to teenagers
Nerve cells have neural impulses that communicate through tiny electrochemical currents. These are carried by neurotransmitter molecules produced by proteins. They are important for the brain to work properly. Disruptions in the levels of neurotransmitters can result in psychiatric disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Therefore, a kid’s brain should be well fed.
Egg protein for these neurotransmitters
Laminine contains a unique protein from fertilized chicken egg that can supplement their protein need. These amino acids form part of Laminine’s OPT9 formula that contains FibroBlast Growth Factor or FGF. FGF is known to signal dormant stem cells to activate and help the body with homeostasis, or the state of balance.
Children need this type of protein that is why a couple of eggs at breakfast each day is good for them. But Laminine is not your ordinary eggs for breakfast. Extracted from the ninth day of a fertilized egg, this protein extract may help children with the following:
1. Better sleep
Sleep deprivation can make kids stupid (Source: NatureShock). There is a correlation between school grades and the average amount of sleep. Missing an hour of sleep turns a sixth grader’s brain into that of a fourth grader.
Sleep loss debilitates the body’s ability to extract glucose from the bloodstream. Without this stream of basic energy, one part of the brain suffers more than the rest—the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for what’s called “Executive Function.”
Tired people or kids have difficulty with impulse control, and their abstract goals like studying take a back seat to more entertaining diversions. A tired brain perseverates — it gets stuck on a wrong answer and can’t come up with a more creative solution, repeatedly returning to the same answer it already knows is erroneous.

2. Happier teens
Happier kids are more likely to turn into successful, accomplished adults. It’s simple logic. Likewise, happy parents equal happy kids. Laminine helps because recent studies show that it can reduce cortisol levels
Laminine is also dubbed as the happy pill, because it triggers serotonin, causing a person to feel more relax and happy. Monoamine Neurotransmitters derived from Amino acids, dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline, and serotonin are released in the brain affecting a crucial role in the arousal of positive emotion.
3. Better at school
If children get enough sleep, are happy, and their developing brains well fed, with supportive parents, they can become top notchers.
Added to the many benefits of Laminine, is the positive effect on children’s overall physical development, such as height. Laminine is known to support bone health and hormones. Giving Laminine to an active teenager will help them utilize these proteins into energy.
