Tryptophan is an amino acid found in protein foods.
Tryptophan is an amino acid found in protein foods. It is important for cognitive processes due to its role in serotonin production. Low levels of this amino acid can impair your cognition, including your memory of events and experiences. Tryptophan interacts with those brain chemicals important to sleep and the timing of your biological clock’s sleep-wake cycle.
Astragalus root belongs to a special class of herbs known as adaptogens, used for various health conditions, such as the common cold.
Astragalus root has unique effects that work to bring the body and mind into greater balance. Widely referred to as “the ancient herb of longevity and strength”, a number of studies have shown that certain compounds in Astragalus root have measurable telomerase-stimulating and enhancing effects, which have been linked to increased longevity, anti-ageing and DNA repair. Astragalus has also become notable over the years for its powerful immune-boosting properties – studies have shown that regular use of Astragalus root leads to an increase in disease-fighting immune antibodies.
Ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers.
Ashwagandha root, one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions and is most well-known for its restorative benefits. It has traditionally been prescribed to help people strengthen their immune system after an illness. It is used as a remedy to help reduce stress and anxiety, by lowering inflated cortisol levels and mimicking the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. Belonging to the same nightshade family as the tomato, ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It bears red fruit about the size of a raisin.
Rhodiola Rosea, is a herb from Siberia.
Rhodiola Rosea, also known as golden root, rose root, or arctic root, is a medicinal plant from Siberia. This herb is an adaptogen, a remedy that helps your body cope with stress. A recent study by British researchers found that taking Rhodiola reduced feelings of stress after just three days, with benefits continuing during the four-week study. This herb has been shown to stimulate serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine activity; the proper balance of these neurotransmitters is believed to be involved in healthy emotional and neurological functioning.
Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses.
Zinc contributes to normal DNA synthesis, normal acid-base metabolism, normal carbohydrate metabolism, normal cognitive function, normal fertility and reproduction, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal metabolism of fatty acids, normal metabolism of vitamin A, normal protein synthesis, the maintenance of normal bones, the maintenance of normal hair, nails and skin, the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood, the maintenance of normal vision, the normal function of the immune system, the protection of cells from oxidative stress and it has a role in the process of cell division.
Iodine is a trace element that is naturally present in some foods. It is needed for the production of thyroid hormone.
Iodine contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found most commonly in tea leaves.
L-theanine facilitates sleep by contributing to a number of changes in the brain: L-theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness, and sleep, as well as appetite, energy, and other cognitive skills. Increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promote relaxation and can help with sleep. L-theanine appears to trigger the release of Alpha waves which enhances relaxation, focus, and creativity. Alpha waves are also present during REM sleep. One of the appealing aspects of L- theanine is that it works to relax without sedating. Research indicates that L-theanine promotes relaxation without drowsiness. This can make it a good choice for people looking to enhance their wakeful relaxation, that is the state of mind you experience when meditating, being creative, or letting your mind wander in daydreaming.
Montmorency Cherries are extraordinarily rich in antioxidants.
Montmorency Cherries are extraordinarily rich in antioxidants, which fight free radicals in the body and can, therefore, help to prevent disease and slow the ageing process. In particular, they are one of the few natural food sources of the potent antioxidant melatonin, which helps to maintain the body’s circadian rhythms and improve sleep cycles. It also has a class of compounds, Superoxide Dismutases, which act as “super scavengers” of harmful free radicals, destroying them throughout the body. Montmorency cherries also contain potent anti-inflammatory agents- phytonutrients, including anthocyanins (natural pigments) and other phenolic and flavonoid compounds. Anthocyanins have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to maintain healthy joint function, mobility and flexibility, reduce inflammation and ease the pain of arthritis. They are also thought to lower urate levels in the body and are therefore often used as a remedy for gout.
Black Pepper is the fruit of the black pepper plant from the Piperaceae family.
Black pepper is a very good anti-inflammatory agent. Piperine is the alkaloid within black pepper that is responsible for its pungency. Piperine improves nutrient absorption, can help improve memory, the immune system, and mental skills.
Amla contains good amount of Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Carotene, and Vitamin B Complex.
Amla fruit may strengthen the digestive system by improving the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food. With anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, Amla may have a regenerative effect on the immune system. Research has shown Amla berry extract to be an effective antibacterial against illness-causing bacteria like staphylococcus and cholerae. It has even been demonstrated to combat Helicobacter pylori bacteria – one of the main causes of gastric ulcers. Amla is loaded with powerful antioxidants and is extremely rich in vitamin C. Amla has been shown to restore the antioxidant system in the liver and restore elevated liver enzymes to normal by increasing the production of the master antioxidants glutathione and superoxide dismutase. The importance of the liver cannot be overstated with regards to immune system health – an optimal function of the liver reduces the toxic burden, which in turn alleviates the burden of chronic toxicity and low-grade inflammation that keep the immune system distracted from its real job.
Magnesium is an essential mineral.
Magnesium plays a widespread, critical role in the body—it’s one of the 24 essential vitamins and minerals—low magnesium levels can throw many of the body’s functions off course, and raise risks for chronic health problems. Healthy magnesium levels can protect metabolic health, stabilise mood, keep stress in check, promote better sleep, and contribute to heart and bone health. Magnesium helps regulate and facilitate many essential functions. One of magnesium’s most important roles is as an enabler of healthy enzyme function. Magnesium is involved in more than 300 different enzyme-related reactions in the body’s cells. Research indicates supplemental magnesium can improve sleep quality, especially in people with poor sleep. Insomnia is a common symptom of magnesium deficiency. People with low magnesium often experience restless sleep, waking frequently during the night. Maintaining healthy magnesium levels often leads to deeper, more sound sleep. Magnesium plays a role in supporting deep, restorative sleep, by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep. Magnesium can also help insomnia that’s linked to the sleep disorder restless-leg syndrome.
Bacopa monnieri is a plant that has been associated with a host of health benefits, including enhanced brain function.
Bacopa Monnieri extract is an adaptogen and nootropic herb that has been used in traditional medicine for longevity and cognitive enhancement. Supplementation may reduce anxiety and improve memory formation. Bacopa monnieri interacts with the dopamine and serotonergic systems, but its main mechanism concerns promoting neuron communication. It does this by enhancing the rate at which the nervous system can communicate by increasing the growth of nerve endings, also called dendrites. Bacopa monnieri is also an antioxidant.
