While approximately 15% of veteran and military populations have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (also known as PTSD), the prevalence of PTSD more than doubles to 37% among those with injuries. traumatic brain.

Gray Team, an American non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the personal health and well-being of active duty soldiers and military veterans, uses a combination of holistic healing technologies while restoring a passion for life and purpose, to completely redefine what it means to be a U.S. Army veteran. Gray Team has a special program, called Operation Phoenix, which helps military veterans learn how to effectively train their mind and body, optimize their nutrition, slow their “fight or flight” response, and allow for psychological recovery from the effects of the war.
In support of Operation Phoenix, Gray Team is working with Seraphina Therapeutics, which is co-founded by a military family and a team of doctors and scientists. Seraphina provides fat15, their award-winning pure C15:0 supplement, to help support the health and well-being of Operation Phoenix participants. C15:0, also called pentadecanoic acid, is an odd-chain saturated fatty acid that recently emerged as the first essential fatty acid to be discovered since omega-3 and omega-6.
