About 1/3 of the US population suffers with this condition; Reward Deficiency Syndrome. The human brain produces a number of "feel good" chemicals. When levels of these "feel good" chemicals are low or blocked from the brain's receptors, pain, discomfort and agitation are the result. RDS may be linked to a genetic defect. People who have these genetic variants posses the inability to produce or utilize "feel good" chemicals in the same way as people who do not have this genetic make-up. Often they are unable to produce a feeling of well-being and consequently often self-medicate with substances that help raise the levels of "feel good" chemicals in their system--if only temporarily. These substances often include: carbohydrates (sugar), junk food, alcohol, nicotine, narcotics or thrill-seeking behaviors such as gambling, sex and internet addictions. Unfortunately, this only provides temporary relief while bringing with it the possibility of more long-term consequences. Please watch the RDS video for solutions to this devastating problem.

Dr. Blum and Dr. Waite advocated a non-specific "healthy diet" and non-specific regular exercise to accompany a regimen of taking SynaptoseTM, the nutrigenomic neuroadaptogen they developed based on Dr. Blum's many years of research to increase the endogenous production of Dopamine and reduce negative Reward Deficiency Syndrome behaviors. The scientific evidence they have thus far accumulated, they say, demonstrates that SynaptoseTM changes the plasticity of the brain synapses while balancing the endogenous neurotransmitters, positively affecting the Brain Reward Cascade.
