Achieve a calmer, relaxed mental outlook as well as a more restful sleep.
Available in regular or cherry flavor.
Inner Calm is a special drink mix containing a blend of ingredients designed to help one achieve a calmer, relaxed mental outlook as well as a more restful sleep.
Use our Inner Calm when you feel your body reacting to stress to help it achieve its natural balance. Stress can trigger numerous responses in the body and chronic stress can carry physical and mental risks. Seven out of ten adults in the US reported experiencing stress almost daily and that it often caused stressed induced sleep problems in falling asleep or staying asleep. When you feel your stress level increase, it's a good time to take a deep breath and try Inner Calm.
Inositol is a naturally occurring substance produced in the human body that belongs to the Vitamin B Complex group. It helps promote brain health and wellness as well as a positive and relaxed outlook. One of Inositol primary functions is cell membrane structure and integrity, especially the cells of the bone marrow, eyes and intestines. In addition it is one of the most crucial nutrients for promoting female hormonal health due to its role in supporting optimal liver function.
Taurine is a sulphur containing amino acid, taurine is implicated in numerous biological and physiological functions including:
L-Theanine is an amino acid derivative commonly found in tea but its concentration is usually less than 2%. Our L-Theanine is manufactured in a proprietary process and is standardized to 98% L-Theanine. L-Theanine has been found in studies to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier and thus has psychoactive properties. One such property that has been clinically confirmed is its relaxing and calming benefits. Studies have also shown that it works antagonistically against the stimulating effects of caffeine on the nervous system.
Additional research on human volunteers has demonstrated that L-Theanine creates a sense of relaxation via two different mechanisms. First, it directly stimulates the production of alpha brain waves, creating a state of deep relaxation and mental alertness similar to that which is achieved through meditation. Secondly, it is involved in the formation of the inhibitory neurotransmitters, gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA influences the level of two other neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotin, also producing key relaxing effects.Benefits of L-Theanine include:
Gamma-aminobutyric acid, often referred to as GABA, is a primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. It works to calm neurons which have been excited by the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate. There is a body of anecdotal reports to support GABA as a useful tool for individuals seeking relief with symptoms resulting from ADHD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks and addiction.
Many of the known neurotransmitters function as both excitatory and inhibitory. GABA on the other hand, works as an inhibitory neurotransmitter to calm and balance the over-firing or excitation of neurons. It has been referred to as "nature's valium" because of its calming effect. When GABA levels get too low, an excitatory transmitter can fire too often in the brain without any inhibition.
Other correlations have been suggested when GABA levels are low. These include trouble sleeping, inability to focus or maintain attention, increased anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Increasing low GABA levels can effectively produce a sense of tranquility within the user. Anxiety levels may decrease depressive symptoms, may lessen insomnia, sleep disruption and may cease or lessen ADHD or ADD symp-toms. Symptoms may be lessened as increased GABA levels help with focus and the ability to concentrate.
While there is no standard recommendation for GABA supplementation, many people have reporting using between 250-750 mg once, twice or three times daily. For more restful sleep it is usually recommended to take 500 mg-750 once at night before bedtime.Di-Magnesium Malate (organic-water soluble)
Magnesium is a crucial macro mineral. The fact that it is involved in hundreds of physiological processes (key to about 350 of the body's enzyme systems) clearly validates its importance. It plays a role in a wide range of body functions such as energy productivity, heart rate, glucose metabolism, emotions and more. Unfortunately it has been found to be one of the most frequently encountered dietary deficiencies in the USA and throughout the world. This formula uses Di-Magnesium Malate, a patented form that consists of one molecule of malic acid attached to two molecules of magnesium. Malate does not react with gastric acid and as such does not cause gastric upset as other forms of magnesium do.
While magnesium offers many benefits, for this discussion, we will focus on emotions. Preclinical and clinical studies have implicated its relationship between magnesium homeostasis and the emotions of fear, anxiety and depression. The underlying mechanisms for these effects remain largely unknown. One premise involves magnesium being involved with the regulation of neurotransmitters.
One study conducted by Sarturi SB, et al (Neuropharmacology 2012, Jan: 62(1) 304-12) observed that magnesium deficiency (mouse model) caused an increase in the transcription of the corticotrophin releasing hormones in the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus and elevated ACTH plasma levels. This indicates an enhanced set point in the HPA axis. They saw that this deregulation of the HPA axis can contribute to hyper-emotionality, as a response to dietary induced hypomagnesemia.
Interest in beetroot has significantly increased in many parts of the world since 2010. Clinical studies indicate that beetroot has positive effects on nutrition, energy and endurance. Beet is a high-nitrate vegetable and because in the body nitrate turns to nitrite (which has been found to help open blood vessels and improve blood flow), it proves to be a powerful ingredient.Beetroot Improves Athletic Performance
