Calm * Focus * Improves Mood

Notes on the Individual Ingredients


Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that can help the body maintain or return to a balanced state, and is the most widely used herb in Ayurvedic medicine. This formulation uses the KSM-66 type of Ashwagandha, a potent, full-spectrum, water-based extraction from just the roots of the plant, which has been shown to be effective in treating anxiety, depression, and sexual-functioning in human clinical studies.

L-Theanine is an amino acid derived from green tea which has a calming effect on us, and starts to work almost immediately after we take it, since it crosses the blood-brain barrier easily. L-Theanine functions by increasing the effectiveness of the brain's main inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA.

5-HTP (stands for Hydroxy-Tryptophan) is a natural extract from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, a type of climbing shrub. It can have an anti-depressant effect by raising the levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which can lift your mood and make you feel more optimistic.

L-Tryptophan is the amino acid found in turkey that can make people not only content but also quite sleepy if taken in high doses, but this formulation only provides half the amount as is found in their SleepX product.

This organic Rhodiola rosea sourced from Tibet has a very potent 3.5% Rosavin and 2.5% Salidroside content and can help with memory, focus, and energy.

Passion Flower is a natural muscle relaxant, sleep aid and anti-anxiety herb, which can help quiet a racing mind and loosen tight muscles. It also increases the effectiveness of GABA, as L-Theanine does, but in a slightly different and complementary way, so they work well together synergistically to help you reach pleasant and anxiety-free states of mind.


Vitamin B3 can help you relax, and this form of it (Niacinamide) can be up to ten times more effective than some types of Vitamin B3 since it be absorbed very well.

Vitamin B12 is needed for the brain to function properly; it is used to boost mood, energy, and concentration and to combat memory loss. This product uses the methylcobalamin form of it, which is much more effective and better for you than the cyanocobalamin form found in most vitamins, since it is already in the active form the body uses, and so will get absorbed and stay in the tissues better, it doesn't contain potentially toxic cyanide molecules the body has to eliminate, and it supports the production of more SAMe.

Magnesium also has a calming, anti-stress effect, and is featured in a number of products specifically for that purpose. It relaxes muscles, and also helps the GABA system. This formulation uses the form of it which is the most absorbable: non-buffered magnesium bisglycinate.
