Relax is an innovative formula in the form of a cherry flavored powdered drink mix. It contains a blend of ingredients that supports the body's natural synthesis of catecholamines, the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, hormonal balance, and healthy glucose metabolism. Relax aims to promote a calm, relaxed, well-balanced emotional and physiological state. Because Relax is a drink, this product works within minutes. Some of the active ingredients in Relax are:
GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) – an amino acid manufactured in brain cells from glutamate. This primary neurotransmitter, abundant in the cerebral cortex, increases the production of alpha waves - which are related to a relaxed, yet mentally focused state - while decreasing beta waves, associated with hyperactivity, nervousness, and fleeting thoughts. Sufficient GABA results in the smooth, calming, regular rhythmic flow of electrical impulses in the brain needed for emotional well-being. The absence of sufficient GABA may be responsible for headaches, palpitations, poorly regulated blood pressure, and poor sex drive, and may even contribute to seizures.
L-Taurine – a conditionally-essential amino acid that stabilizes cell membranes in the heart and brain, both electrically active tissues. In addition to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory functions, taurine is important in neurotransmission, neuroregulation, and cardiac function, including heart rhythm and blood pressure.
L-Theanine – a free-form amino acid that gives green tea its characteristic taste. Theanine’s ability to relax the mind without inducing drowsiness has been documented.
Magnesium – sometimes referred to as the relaxation mineral, assists in the transmission of nerve impulses and is essential to more than 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. Magnesium supplementation has been shown to improve mood.
Dosage: Dissolve one scoop of Relax powder into 6 ounces of cool, pure water. Drink one to four times daily.
Contraindications: Use cautiously if driving, operating machinery, etc. Use under supervision of a licensed healthcare practitioner. Keep out of reach of children.
