Sometimes It Does Take A Brain Surgeon To Figure It Out.

After witnessing first-hand, the debilitating impact of anxiety and stress on his fellow students and faculty, Neuroscientist Dr. Michael Jiang took matters into his own hands and developed a scientific formula to provide temporary relief.

PHOENIX, AZ – 02-15-2018 (Press Release Jet) — Nerv, invented by Neuroscientist, Dr. Michael Jiang, has launched a breakthrough 2 oz. supplement to help millions of people around the world take control of their stress and anxiety, a mounting problem among young people often attributed to the negative impacts of social media. 

Michael, a prodigious scientist brought to America from Australia on scholarships, noticed many fellow students repeatedly experiencing debilitating episodes of anxiety and stress. A recent report by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health showed that nearly half of US college students seek help for anxiety or depression. 

“Anxiety and stress are problems which do not discriminate against age, gender or economic status” said Michael. “It can be fueled by social and financial pressure, political turmoil and fear. While social media has an undeniably positive impact, for many, especially young people, it has created a new form of social anxiety.”

His creation was Pherelax, a formulation which consists of naturally occurring and nutritional supplements, classified by the FDA, that are clinically proven to combat anxiety and stress. Pherelax, which is the active ingredient in Nerv, targets the amygdala, the part of the brain that controls anxiety, fear and stress, working as an “off switch” that signals brains to tame neurons that become overactive when fearful and worried, thus lowering anxiety, improving focus and providing peace of mind. 

After formulating Pherelax in 2016 and winning the Bernard Pitch the Summit Competition, Nerv generated thousands of online pre-orders on Indiegogo where it was fully funded in under a week and featured as a trending product. Focus groups reported 75% of participants feeling more social and comfortable around others after taking Nerv, with 90% recommending it to a friend and 100% saying they would take it again. 

“Nerv is the yin to the yang of modern life,” said Michael. “While generations of youth are growing up ingesting energy drinks to hyper stimulate their senses, massive overconsumption of stimulants is only worsening the problem. Nerv works in the opposite way to an energy drink, promoting calm and mindfulness. I guess you could call Nerv the ‘anti’ energy drink.” 

Nerv is available online in 6 and 12 packs at and and is finding its way onto retail shelves throughout North America where it retails over the counter for $4.99 for an individual shot.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
