Brain Calm is an effective blend of critical amino acids and herbs that promote relaxation and sleep. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid that functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Most neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine and noradrenaline, promote a feeling of wakefulness and alertness, however GABA acts by blocking these –excitatory” neurotransmitters to promote relaxation in the brain. By promoting relaxation, GABA has been shown to help sleep irregularities such as the inability to fall asleep or waking during the night. Additionally, Brain Calm contains Passion flower, which is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid, especially in times of restlessness or sleeplessness due to mental stress
ProgestoMend™ is a combination of plant extracts, including chasteberry, specifically designed to help relieve premenstrual and menopausal symptoms. Chasteberry extract (Vitex agnus-castus) contains active constituents that play a role in hormone activity, including dopaminergic compounds that suppress the release of prolactin. This herb also acts on the pituitary gland to stimulate the release of luteinizing hormone, which results in increased progesterone levels. By balancing prolactin and progesterone levels, two important hormones involved in the menstrual cycle, chasteberry helps to restore menstrual regularity. Decreasing prolactin levels can also help to relieve premenstrual symptoms, which commonly include mood, headache, bloating, and breast fullness.
