From a whole-body standpoint, inhibitory neurotransmission by GABA has positive effects on neuromuscular relaxation. Accordingly, increased levels of GABA in the central nervous system (CNS) can result in relaxant effects as well as alleviating symptoms of nervousness and mood instability. In fact, the concept that GABA deficiencies or dysfunctions contribute to various mood issues and (CNS) issues (the GABAergic hypothesis) has become increasingly prominent in the scientific literature.*
5-HTP (Hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor in the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin. Several studies have shown that 5-HTP supports a healthy mind, ease of movement and restful sleep.*
Another important ingredient in our Calming Cream is L-theanine. L-theanine is an uncommon amino acid, primarily found in the green tea plant (Camellia sinensis), plus two other Camellia species. As L-theanine is concentrated in the leaves, it is present in preparations of green tea consumed as a beverage around the world. Therapeutically, L-theanine has been used as a natural relaxant, but it also has potential in easing nervousness and mood support.*
In addition, our physicians have included ingredients L-Tyrosine, Magnesium and lavender oil to combine a one of kind topical lotion.
Magnesium in general is essential for the survival of our cells but takes on further importance in the age of toxicity where our bodies are being bombarded on a daily basis with heavy metals. Glutathione requires magnesium for its synthesis. Without the cleaning of glutathione (magnesium) cells may begin to decay as filth and heavy metals accumulates.*
NOTE: Light brown color is expected and normal due to the natural L-Tyrosine. Color may be different per batch produced and may darken over time if left in a humid or hot area.
