STRESS FACTOR NATURAL MOOD & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FORMULA
STRESS FACTOR is an excellent choice for nutritional support for an increased parasympathetic neurological response.
PYRIDOXAL 5’-PHOSPHATE (Vitamin B6) is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and glycogen and is a coenzyme in the synthesis of nucleic acids and hemoglobin. B6 is a necessary cofactor for DOPAdecarboxylase whose activity is responsible for the production of dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine from tyrosine. It also acts as a cofactor for 5HTP decarboxylase which is involved in the synthesis of serotonin from tryptophan. B6 is also closely related to B12 and folate metabolism and therefore supports healthy methylation reactions and a reduction in homocysteine levels. Reduced homocysteine levels are associated with improved cardiovascular and neurological health.
L-THEANINE is a non-protein amino acid found naturally in Camellia sinensis (green tea). L-theanine has mood-modulating activity and modest antioxidant activity. Its effects on mood modulation may be through direct effects on GABA receptors or through affects on the metabolism and release of other neurotransmitters, such as dopamine. Another benefit of L-theanine is its ability to enhance alpha wave activity of the brain. Alpha waves have a mood-modulating benefit while maintaining alertness.
GABA (Gamma amino butyric acid) is an inhibitory amino acid that acts directly as a neurotransmitter. GABA, like L-theanine, has mood-modulating activity and anti-stress benefits.
INOSITOL is also a lipotropic agent. As such, it may help protect against increases in total cholesterol and fatty acids in the liver.Inositol favorably supports nervous system health. It seems to balance moodsand emotions and posses adaptogenic properties.
LITHIUM is present in the human diet in ultratrace amounts and is found in some natural mineral waters and colloidal minerals. Fish, processed meat, milk, milk products, eggs, potatoes, and vegetables are rich sources of this mineral. It has been suggested that lithium, at low dosage levels, has a generally beneficial effect on human behavior. High prescription doses are often prescribed for its mood-stabilizing effects.
