SolCalm™ Mind is designed to promote activity of GABA and serotonin, which may help support healthy mood, cravings, and feelings of calm, satiety, and satisfaction.*
SolCalm™ Mind contains PharmaGABA™, a form of GABA naturally manufactured via a fermentation process, which is considered more effective than chemically produced synthetic forms. Support for the production of calming neurotransmitters is also provided by L-theanine and taurine.
L-theanine is an amino acid found abundantly in green tea. L-theanine has been shown to quickly improve stress perception and resilience. The stress-buffering mechanisms of L-theanine have been connected to its ability to increase serotonin and dopamine production in the brain. L-theanine has also been shown to significantly increase alpha brain wave activity, which is critical for increasing attention as well as promoting a sense of relaxation.
Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. GABA provides a calming effect and is a primary component of the body’s stress fighting mechanisms. GABA is also available as dietary supplement. Most commercially available forms of GABA utilize synthetically-produced GABA, manufactured from pyrrolidinone, a compound not allowed for use in Japan. SolCalm™ Performance includes a patented, naturally-sourced, non-synthetic form of GABA called PharmaGABA®. It is produced naturally by the friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus hilgardii. In contrast to synthetic GABA sources, PharmaGABA® has been shown in published research studies to promote relaxation effects in the central nervous system (CNS).
5-HTP can be used as a precursor to serotonin, which can support endogenous serotonin and melatonin production. Serotonin is a very important calming neurotransmitter known as “the feel-good hormone.” In the Central Nervous System (CNS), serotonin has been implicated in the regulation of sleep, depression, anxiety, aggression, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. When using 5-HTP for enhancing serotonin and melatonin production to promote calmness, healthy mood and sleep, reduction in pain perception and lessening of IBS symptoms, the addition of the synergistic nutrient pyridoxal-5-phospate, an activated form of vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) is suggested to catalyze the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin (5-HT) and for proper methylation required for neurotransmitter production.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a nutrient essential for optimal brain function. Because PS is crucial for the overall health of brain cells, research on PS has shown that it benefits a wide range of brain activities. Phosphatidylserine and inositol are included in SolCalm CompleteTM for supporting proper neuron membrane structure for maximummembrane fluidity, receptor function, and response to neurotransmitters, hormones, and cell-signaling compounds. SolCalm CompleteTM also includes the fully chelated magnesium glycinate involved in proper nerve transmission, muscular contraction/relaxation and general relaxation responses.
