How does it work?
Naltrexone is an opiate receptor antagonist, which means it blocks the opioid receptor. It is a drug that was approved by the FDA in 1984 for treatment of opioid and alcohol addition in doses of 50-200mg. Lower doses ranging from 0.5mg to 9mg daily have the unique ability to modulate the immune system, and shown tremendous promise in providing relief to those suffering from chronic pain, auto-immune diseases, mental health challenges, and inflammation.
