Enhanced Stress Relief, 30 vegetarian capsules , Item# 00987

It's hard to find a natural antidote to today's overstressed world. The encouraging news is that lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), a plant native to the Mediterranean region, has been clinically provento reduce anxietyby 49%and sleeplessness by up to 39% in as little as 15 days. What's more, lemon balm produces these calming effects while also enhancing memory and attention!

Cyracos® lemon balm extract is prepared from special lemon balm chosen for its high concentrations of hydroxycinnamicand rosmarinic acids. These active lemon balm constituents appear to enhance mood by modulating specific nicotinic and muscarinic receptors in the cerebral cortex of the brain.

Aside from relieving everyday stress and sleep problems, the anxiety-relieving properties of this plant extract may also offer smokers relief from the mental stress of quitting, aid in leveling mood swings, support female balance, and promote a feeling of satiety.

Relaxation-promoting effects of theanine

The Japanese have long known that theanine, an amino acid derived from green tea, is a natural relaxant that diminishes stress--without drowsiness, impaired thought, or other side effects.

Theanine produces tranquilizing effects in the brain in ways that have been compared to meditation, massage, and aromatherapy.

Theanine induces relaxation without causing drowsiness. In fact, studies show that theanine enhances the brain's ability to concentrate, learn, and remember. Unlike caffeine, theanine increases GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), an inhibitory neurotransmitter that not only induces relaxation but also produces a sense of well-being. Theanine also increases levels of dopamine, a critical brain hormone that is depleted by various stress factors.

A host of health-enhancing benefits

Research shows that theanine has numerous health-enhancing effects, including protecting cognitive function. In studies of neurons in cell culture, theanine significantly reversed glutamate-induced toxicity, a major cause of degenerative brain decline.

Based on an enormous amount of published data showing the multiple beneficial effects of lemon balm extract and theanine, Life Extension has combined these potent but safe nutrients into a new formula called Natural Stress Relief.

The theanine used in the new Natural Stress Relief is Suntheanine®, the only pure form of L-theanine available worldwide and the only form protected by 40 internationally recognized patents and scientifically proven in clinical studies to be safe and efficacious. Independent laboratory analysis has verified that certain other products on the market claiming to contain "L-theanine" are only half L-theanine, the other half being a different form of theanine known as "D-theanine" which has not been scientifically evaluated in published studies.
