MELATONIN is a hormone that exists naturally in the body. As we age, our bodies tend to produce less of it. It is also a powerful antioxidant, and promotes better cognitive function. Some customers have asked us if it is a good idea to take melatonin—it is, after all, a hormone. In fact, melatonin is a natural compound—it exists universally in plants. You get melatonin every day in the fruits and vegetables you eat, albeit in smaller amounts. In plants, melatonin is part of their immune system as an antioxidant, promotes photosynthesis by preserving chlorophyll and stimulates root development.
TART CHERRY EXTRACT can help give relief from mild anxiety. It is a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. New research shows that there is a close relationship between chronic internal inflammation and depression. This type of inflammation is often undetected because it falls below the radar of pain and visible swelling.
PASSIONFLOWER EXTRACT is recognized by science as effective for general anxiety, worry and tension. One of the actions of Passionflower is to increase GABA in nerve cells in the brain (see below for more about GABA).
THEANINE is an amino acid found primarily in green tea. It is the reason many feel so relaxed and peaceful after drinking the beverage. It increases the calming neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin. Many studies show that supplementing the diet with l-theanine helps relieve anxiety, reduce stress and boost mood. One serving of RELAX DAY gives you up to four times as much l-theanine as you would get in a cup of green tea.
GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is a neurotransmitter—an amino acid that the body uses to regulate the central nervous system. It is calming when the system is over stimulated, which explains the relaxing effects from GABA supplements. Some psychiatric drugs are designed to increase GABA activity in the brain. But instead of using such synthetic chemicals with their numerous side effects, you can boost GABA by supplementing the diet with GABA and with ingredients that stimulate GABA production such as Passionflower extract and Theanine.
