This unique formula combines traditional herbal adaptogens Maca and Rhodiola with newly released-to-market ingredients Relora and theanine, to assist the body in regaining homeostasis by reducing stress and anxiety. This non-stimulating formula gently restores natural harmony to the nervous system.
Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, especially in the spinal cord, similar to GABA and glutamic acid.
Glycine also enhances the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain that are involved in memory and cognition.
Glycine may have antispastic, antipsychotic activity as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.
Glycine’s mechanism of action has to do with its presumed antagonism of norepinephrine (NE). Glycine antagonizes the release of NE, which is released when a person experiences anxiety or panic, thus mitigating stress.
Relora® is a patented blend of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense and helps alleviate symptoms associated with stress such as nervous tension, irritability, concentration difficulties and occasional sleeplessness.
It is not habit-forming. It is used in stress management and for stress-related appetite control and weight loss.
Maca has been dubbed “Peruvian Ginseng,” though it bears no relation to Ginseng.
Its beneficial effects include increasing stamina (sexual and athletic), improving sexual function and fertility, hormonal balancing, thyroid and immune system enhancement, along with improving memory and fighting depression.
Theanine (an extract from Green Tea) acts as a non-sedating relaxant to help increase the brain’s production of alpha-waves (those associated with “relaxed alertness”).
This makes theanine extremely effective for combating tension, stress and anxiety, without inducing drowsiness.
By increasing alpha waves, theanine is thought to control anxiety, increase mental focus, improve concentration and promote creativity.
Rhodiola has been used to promote longevity and increase the body’s resistance to physical and mental stresses.
Its uses include weight loss, fatigue, sexual wellbeing, general wellness, athletic performance and immune enhancement, cognitive function improvement and anti-depressant.
It provides non-stimulant “energizing” effects as it improves the body’s ability to take up and utilize oxygen.
