CLINICAL TRIAL #2
A clinical study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital in conjunction with Harvard University showed that in addition to preventing neural tube defects, EnBrace HR is able to finally give women with depression an option to safely forego antidepressant medication while they're trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and postpartum.

“I have a chemical imbalance…” A statement I have heard countless times throughout my career. No one can blame the patient for saying it: when they see a psychiatrist, even after a first visit, the patient usually leaves with a prescribed chemical, designed to cross the blood-brain barrier.
