Cyracos® Lemon Balm Extract
Cyracos is an indispensable ally in finding serenity and well-being in everyday life. It increases the availability of GABA in the brain, and thanks to a specific composition, Cyracos is the only plant extract of lemon balm that acts simultaneously on your stress and its associated symptoms. Clinical trials resulted in outstanding results including a 72% reduction on stress-related symptoms.
Used in Ayurveda as a rejuvenative and nervine tonic, Ashwagandha has anti-stress and adrenal support properties and reduces anxiety. It enables the body to mount an appropriate stress response with less cortisol, allowing adrenals to return to normal more quickly. It alleviates mental fatigue by inhibiting an enzyme that causes poor blood circulation in the brain leading to that sense of being “drop-dead” fatigue.
Rhodiola helps cope with daily stress and promotes mental performance. It helps the body adapt to stress by moderating the levels and activity of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine in the brain.
Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that exerts a profoundly relaxing yet non-drowsy effect. It promotes relaxation and healthy mood balance by increasing alpha brain waves - an electrical brain activity commonly present when one is in a relaxed state.
Working in tandem with Theanine to help regulate mood, 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid involved in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.
Choline and Inositol
Often referred to as brain food, Choline and Inositol help ensure proper brain and stress response function.
Bioperine® Black Pepper
A black pepper extract that helps the absorption of other nutrients found in Veeva, for optimum effect.
Allspice, Cloves, Cinnamon
The Journal of Medicinal Foods showed that the phenol content of spices offered better protection to brain tissue against advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) than any herb or antioxidant. University of Georgia researchers proved that clove, cinnamon and allspice are exceptionally strong at reducing inflammation in tissues. This is critical to preventing brain cell damage from stress, anxiety or mood swings.
