Discontinued Until Further Notice

For instructions for Brain Recovery Replacement CLICK HERE

We’re sorry to say that Brain Recovery AM/PM, which has been my flagship product for years, has been discontinued due to recent excessive price increases for the ingredients and manufacturing process. This in combination with rising fees and costs associated with online sales, makes it no longer feasible to continue with it.

Rather than raising prices to the point where the formula is out of reach of those most in need, I decided to replace it with a combination of several  different formulas – amino acids to make neurotransmitters, multivitamin/mineral for co-factors, detoxifying ingredients, blood sugar balancers, and craving controllers. In fact that is what I had initially: custom packets with various formulas that made up the Brain Recovery AM/PM Formula. Then the manufacturer discontinued them due to costs (!) and I moved over to the custom 2 bottles. So really,. we’re back to the old and still excellent formula.

You can go to this professional supplement site, sign up, then search the catalog for “Brain Recovery AM/PM replacement.”  Here it  is spelled out as well. Click here.

Brain Recovery AM & PM™

This is the core formula for Dr. Cass’ Brain Recovery Program™ (see description below) based on years of research with hundreds of patients with imbalanced brain chemistry. This formula is particularly useful in recovery from:

  • Brain Depressants (alcohol, marijuana, benzodiazepines, or opiates) by taking the edge off, relieving irritability and discomfort.
  • Brain Stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, cocaine, and methamphetamine, by helping you stay positive and alert without them.
  • Antidepressants and Other Psychiatric Medications, preventing withdrawal symptoms or “discontinuation syndrome” (to be done under medical supervision) by balancing brain chemistry.
  • Low Moods, stress, anxiety, lack of motivation, stress, anxiety, lack of motivation, impaired attention and concentration by providing essential amino acids.
  • Difficulty with Focus and Concentration, by providing essential amino acids and other nutrients.


The Brain Recovery Program™ helps to smooth out the discomfort associated with withdrawal while restoring energy and brain function. Even if you’ve never used substances but suffer from mood or focus problems that interfere with your happiness and well-being, you can now reclaim your brain!

In Addition, if you…

  • Require caffeine or sugar to help you wake up and/or get through the day
  • Turn to alcohol or other substances to help you relax and unwind
  • Hide how much you eat, drink, or smoke
  • Are concerned about your current dependence on antidepressant or other mood-altering medications.

Then you need to know…

You are not a weak or “bad” person. Your brain chemistry is out of balance. The good news is you can take control to “re-tune” your body and brain to feel better than ever. Learn how the correct combination of healthy diet and specific nutritional supplements can correct these problems and reclaim your happiness and well being. 

Supplement-Taking Simplified:

Recovery or brain restoration  is difficult enough without having to keep track of numerous pills in multiple bottles. To address this issue Dr. Cass designed the Brain Recovery AM & PM Program, combining the equivalent of at least 6 different formulas into 2 convenient bottles containing the specific highest ingredients in the exact, balanced amounts needed to help you through your day. Brain Recovery AM & PM nutritional program helps restore mood and brain function. It stops cravings for addictive substances by balancing your brain chemistry, naturally.

Taken together the A.M. and P.M. Program provides:

  • A Complete Complement of Vitamins & Minerals: A potent combination of essential nutritional basics and co-factors for optimum nutrition of brain and body.
  • Powerful antioxidants and liver support nutrients: Essential for detoxification, including alpha lipoic acid, NAC, and silymarin.
  • Blood Sugar balancing nutrients: Chromium and glutamine for smoothing out energy and mood swings.
  • Recommended addition: Omega-3 Fatty Acids These are essential components for brain nutrition, enhancing mood, learning, focus and attention. Omega-3’s also help regulate inflammation and are heart healthy. You can purchase our Double Strength Super EPA, containing 360 mg of EPA and 24 mg of DHA. Take 2 daily with a meal, either 1 twice a day or two at once.

Brain Recovery A.M. ”Wakes You Up”

Brain Recovery A.M. contains the mood and energy enhancers glutamine and tyrosine to help keep you happy, alert, and energized.

Brain Recovery P.M. ”Relax and Unwind”

Brain Recovery P.M. provides the nutrients glutamine, theanine, and 5-HTP (5 hydroxytryptophan) to enhance mood, help you wind down from the day’s activities, and promote relaxation and restful sleep. In addition, it contains N-acetyl-Cysteine and Alpha Lipoic Acid, precursors to the master antioxidant, glutathione. This helps your body to clean up residues of any remaining medications and other substances.

Brain Recovery AM&PM – Comes in 2 convenient bottles of capsules, for morning wake-up and evening chill.

This all-in-one format enables you to determine the exact number that are best for YOU, anywhere from 5-7 of each daily.

  • It is essential that you take both the AM and PM capsules, even if you take the PM at lunch or bedtime,  instead of dinner as recommended.
  • The AM formula has the more activating ingredients including the multi-vitamins and tyrosine,  and the PM Formula, the more calming ingredients as well as the major minerals.
  • Add in an Omega 3 capsule of your choice. We recommend molecularly distilled (to avoid contaminants) and double strength  Dr. Cass’ Super EPA.

Combining Brain Recovery AM PM with Dr. Cass’ other brain and energy formulas for maximum benefit: 

We are all biochemically unique. While this program is effective for most people, you many need to add some of these specialized formulas for maximum effect: If you find that you then need more energy or focus, such as for reading, writing, studying or driving, add the following:

Focus: It’s a natural “stimulant” or “caffeine substitute.” Click here

Energy Balance: A mild energizer, it also contains adaptogens to support the adrenal glands. Click here

Take 1 – 3 Capsules of either or both Focus and Energy Balance in the morning and for that mid-afternoon energy slump.

If you still tend to be anxious, irritable and easily stressed, take:

CALM: 2 capsules, 2-3 times daily (up to 6 daily). CALM is a great end-of-the-workday supplement and pre-bedtime relaxer. Click here

5-HTP: If you experience low moods, anxiety and have trouble sleeping and staying asleep you are likely low in serotonin. 5-HTP will provide the raw material needed to make serotonin in your brain. Take 5-HTP 100 mg, 1-3 capsules 1/2 hour before bedtime. If you are taking an SSRI antidepressant, check with your physician, since there is a rare risk of serotonin syndrome. Click here

Brain Cell Support Plus: If your memory and cognitive abilities are not what they used to be (what you’d like them to be) take 2 capsules with breakfast and 2 with lunch or dinner. It provides the materials needed to enhance memory and cognition. Click here

Lifestyle, Diet, and Supplements:

  • Begin with a healthy diet
  • Eliminate smoking, sugar and caffeine
  • Exercise daily
  • Restorative sleep: get 7-9 hours of quality sleep
  • Add supplements (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs) to correct underlying chemical imbalances
  • Address psychological and spiritual aspects
  • Do one or more of a wide range of available lifestyle techniques, including meditation, visualization, biofeedback, music, massage, yoga, movement and dance

Dr Cass’s AM & PM Brain Recovery and Brain Cell Support gave me my brain back! We first heard about neuronutrition from our friend who had a very successful rehab and recovery center, and used it to treat drug withdrawal.  I purchased Dr. Cass’ Brain Recovery AM&PM and Brain Cell Support to help my  husband’s PTSD, which has similar symptoms to addiction withdrawal. Then I decided to see if these supplements  would help me with my own brain fog, memory slowness, and poor sleep: I had gone through a number of very stressful years:  caring for my mother during her last year, having stressful work challenges, while my husband’s health was down-sliding. I reasoned that my brain had perhaps suffered similar abuse to addicts, and it could use some help with the fog and memory loss I was experiencing. It worked! My sleep is much better and the fog and memory vastly improved. Once, when I had not reordered in time and had gone for a week without my supplements, I found I was back in the fog again. My chosen life continues to stress and stretch me as I’m now on the front battle lines of environmental work to protect our immediate locale and the planet. I look forward to less stress someday, but until then, have chosen to support my very necessary brain with these supplements. I am so greatful to have found this help! Thank you to Dr Cass for thinking outside the medical model box and creating these supportive, effective supplements. Getting my brain, my life back is priceless!

Heidi Dhivya Berthoud, LMT, CYT, RDH,

Love it. Best I have experienced ever. Noticed cognition improvement in two days. In three weeks noticed increased sex drive. At age 72 both are huge to me.

Michael Grant White, Optimal Breathing Association

After months of sobriety from various stimulants, I was still sleeping poorly and felt exhausted. However, within a week of taking Dr. Cass’ Brain Recovery AM&PM formula, I was amazed to find that I was able to fall asleep easily and deeply. I woke up rested, and my energy and focus lasted all day. I noticed that I was dreaming, too, which I hadn’t for a long time. I felt as if my brain was restoring itself!”  

Charles R., age 45,

My doctor wanted to prescribe antidepressants but I was afraid of the side effects, and of being dependent on medication, so I tried Dr. Cass’ Brain Recovery Nutritional Program and in a month, I was back to the old me, and haven’t looked back since.”

Maria, age 33,

Your “magic medicine” Brain Recovery AM/PM Formula helped me through a wild summer last year! It was all related to my addiction to prescribed pain medication, oxycontin, for chronic arm pain. To make matters worse, as a side effect of the drug, I had horrendous sleep apnea (I stopped breathing 60 times every hour at night), to the point where I was falling asleep mid-conversation, or behind the wheel at a red light. I couldn’t watch a movie or a play without falling asleep, and my marriage was in serious jeopardy because half the time, my wife was chatting with a zombie. Then I stopped the oxycontin. Almost overnight I found I could stay awake all day no problem, and I’d sleep through the night wonderfully. It was like being reborn. And I haven’t had a problem since! 
 Also, for whatever reason, I used to get the hiccups three or four times per day. I haven’t had them since July of last year. So how did I get off the oxycontin? I went into forced codeine (oxycontin) withdrawal when I left my pain medication at home when I went out of town. After five days in New York with no sleep, wild sweats and horrors too brutal to even tell, it took a while to get my system working, even once I got home. Then I called you [a friend of the family], and you recommended Brain Recovery AM/PM Formula daily, along with CALM Natural Mind pills as needed. From the start, when I took the Brain Recovery packetsalong with the CALM pills, my head got clearer, my appetite normal, and I’d just feel human again. Eventually, by the time I started my new job in late August, I think I was about 90% recovered. I’d had no idea that the pills my doctor kept prescribing me were wreaking such havoc on my body. At home we called around and I was told I should get on methadone to help with withdrawal symptoms. Happily, I listened to you instead and was able to get through that difficult time without developing a new addiction or further damaging my insides.
 I hate to think of where I’d be now if not for you and your amazing supplements! I’m happy to say that I haven’t taken anything stronger than an Advil for pain since then.
 When my arms hurt, I’ve found other ways to deal with the pain. You’ve been a huge help with this, and I can’t thank you enough. I’ll forever be in your debt for helping to make last summer more manageable with the Brain Recovery and CALM! Thanks again.

Marty Schwartz,
