CalmSupport only uses active versions of vitamins which do not need to be metabolized by your body, allowing for easier digestion, faster absorption to provide the maximum benefit. We also use the finest organic herbal powder rather than extracts in order to give you the full benefit that each specific herb provides. We pride ourselves by offering the highest quality ingredients in our amazing supplement.
Organic Passion Flower Herb Powder – The properties in passionflower make it useful as a soothing sleep-aid and in supporting relaxation in times of stress. Scientists believe that passionflower works by increasing levels of a chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA reduces the activity of some brain cells, inducing a greater state of relaxation.
Organic Valerian Root Powder – Valerian has been used for thousands of years around the world to treat several disorders including restlessness, nervousness and insomnia. It fights anxiety, nervousness, lowers heart rate which relieves hypertension.
Organic Oat Seed Powder – Oats strengthen and rebuild the nervous system and are one of the finest herbs to use after you have gone through long periods of stress and physical work.
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) – GABA is a chemical that is made in the brain. It is taken by mouth for relieving anxiety, improving mood, reducing symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also used for promoting lean muscle growth, burning fat, stabilizing blood pressure, and relieving pain.
L-Theanine as L-TeaActive (TM) – L-Theanine as L-TeaActive(TM) has been shown to have a direct influence on brain activity, such as reducing stress. It has the ability to relax the mind without causing drowsiness.
Organic Phyllanthus (Bhumyamalaki) Herb Powder – Bhumyamalaki is an herb with strong detoxifying properties for the liver.
Organic Velvet Bean Seed Powder – Also known as Mucuna Pruriens. Contains L-Dopa, which is a precursor to the neurotransmitter Dopamine. This property makes this herb fantastic for people suffering through withdrawal and whose dopamine levels are very low.
Organic Ginger Root Powder – Ginger has shown to be an effective remedy for the nausea associated with motion sickness. It is also an anti-inflammatory and is a powerful natural painkiller. Research has shown that ginger may provide headache relief due to its ability to stop prostaglandins from causing pain and inflammation in blood vessels.
Organic Motherwort Herb Powder – Calming herb helpful for combating irritability and emotional volatility. Motherwort can relieve heart palpitations and reduce hypertension caused by anxiety.
Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder – Ashwagandha has been shown to ease agitation and feelings of worry as well as to decrease the symptoms of opiate withdrawal. Its ability to stabilize moods and boost adrenal recovery is highly valued by many herbalists.
L-Tryptophan – L-Tryptophan is used for insomnia, sleep apnea, depression, anxiety, facial pain, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD). After absorbing L-Tryptophan, our bodies convert it to 5-HTP (5-hyrdoxytryptophan) and then to Seratonin. Seratonin transmits signals between nerve cells and alters mood.
Zinc (as Zinc Citrate) – Zinc is a metal. It is called an “essential trace element” because very small amounts of zinc are necessary for human health. Zinc is used for treatment and prevention of zinc deficiency and its consequences, including stunted growth and acute diarrhea, and slow wound healing. It is used for boosting the immune system, production of antibodies, T-cells and other blood cell activity.
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) – Vitamin C is nature's "drug fighter." It helps people withdraw from drugs - ranging from prescribed mood changers to addictive substances such as heroin. It does this by enhancing metabolism of the drug and muting both toxicity and side effects. It can also reverse side effects from drugs that are necessary to some individuals' existence.
Thiamin (as Thiamine HCL) – Thiamin aids the central nervous system. Your body uses it to process fats, carbs and proteins. An addict’s body is unable to properly absorb Thiamine leading to a deficiency. This deficiency can lead to Beriberi, a disease that causes lesions of nerves, general debility, and painful rigidity. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart and muscles.
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) – Pyridoxine, also known as vitamin B6, is necessary for the transformation and utilization of amino acids for many functions in the body, including energy production and neurotransmitter synthesis.* Vitamin B6 is also involved in the production of hemoglobin, intrinsic factor, and is a vital component in the formation of the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells. But in order for pyridoxine to be used by the body it must first be converted to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (P5P), a process that takes place in the liver. Individuals with compromised liver function have difficulty making this conversion and consequently may be at risk of a vitamin B6 deficiency. Supplementing with CalmSupport's Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate ensures you receive the most bioactive form of vitamin B6.
Folic Acid – Folic acid deficiency has been found among people with depression and has been linked to poor response to antidepressant treatment. Some study suggests that folic acid supplementation might decrease systolic blood pressure and improve flow-mediated dilation. Folic acid deficiency will occur if the body does not get the adequate amount of folic acid from dietary intake. Folic acid has been shown to be effective in the treatment of megaloblastic and macrocytic anemias due to folate deficiency.
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) – Vitamin B12 is used for treating and preventing vitamin B12 deficiency, a condition in which vitamin B12 levels in the blood are too low. It is also used to treat pernicious anemia, a serious type of anemia that is due to vitamin B12 deficiency and is found mostly in older people. For this purpose, people use either a supplement that is taken by mouth or a gel that is applied inside the nose. Vitamin B12 is also used for memory loss; Alzheimer’s disease; boosting mood, energy, concentration and the immune system; and slowing aging.
CalmSupport does not use Magnesium Stearate as a flow agent. (A flow agent is a substance that is used during the manufacturing process to help prevent the ingredients and capsules from sticking together.) There has been some controversy about the use of Magnesium Stearate in supplements and vitamins. A study published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences found that drugs lubricated with Magnesium Stearate exhibited a decrease in dissolution rate compared to those lubricated with Sodium Stearyl Fumarate (A water-based compound). The results suggest that Magnesium Stearate could possibly decrease the nutrient absorption rate of a dietary supplement. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3735097. We have decided not to use Magnesium Stearate in CalmSupport. Instead we use Organic Rice Hull Powder as a flow agent. We highly suggest that you do research before using any product that has Magnesium Stearate as an ingredient.
