This formula supports the body in coping with stress through its effects on neurotransmitters and hormones such as catecholamines, cortisol, dopamine, serotonin and glutamate. In a number of animal studies, the administration of this combination of herbs and calcium prevented stress-induced adrenal changes and decreased cortisol production in a dose-dependent manner. In another scientific trial, this formula effectively decreased neurological changes associated with chronic stress in mice and supported healthy nervous system function.
Support healthy mood regulation: In a recent study, the effects of this formula on stress-related mood changes were studied; it was found that treatment with this combination of herbs and calcium reduced stress-induced melancholic states in a dose-dependent manner, and that decreases in dopamine and serotonin in the prefrontal cortex associated with low moods were also prevented.
Improves sleep patterns: Administration of this formula has been shown to improve sleep patterns in excitable mice and might be useful in sleep disorders due to neural excitation.
