AtreMorine is a natural product of the vegetal line obtained from the vegetal species Vicia Faba L., a natural source of L-dopa, a precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine.

Benefits and Indications

Cell Protection

AtreMorine contributes to cell protection against oxidative stress.


Motor Function

AtreMorine contributes to improving motor function.

Oxidative Stress

AtreMorine contributes to protecting DNA, proteins and lipids against oxidative stress.

Recommended for:

  • forestalling and treating dopamine deficiency-associated pathologies.
  • protecting cells against oxidative stress, involved in the development of many diseases.

- Natural Complex of Vegetal Origin -

AtreMorine is a compound of vegetal origin obtained from the species Vicia Faba L. by non-denaturing biotechnological processes which preserve the natural properties of the active ingredients.

- Natural source of L-dopa -

The species Vicia Faba L. is a natural source of L-dopa, a precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine.
AtreMorine combines the benefits of vitamin E, providing the recommended daily intake.
