For the month of May, I have three products on sale. Each one works with mood, anxiety, and depression.
Theanine by Thorne 25% Off
L-theanine is a unique amino acid that is found almost exclusively in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) and which has been used safely in Japan for decades. L-theanine has been shown to positively modify brain waves and the key neurotransmitters involved in mood, focus, and memory.* L-theanine enhances the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, and also appears to play a role in the formation of GABA – a neurotransmitter that acts like a “brake” during times of runaway stress.* L-theanine also enhances brain alpha-wave activity, a marker of relaxation.* This effect has been observed to be most pronounced in individuals subjectively feeling the highest levels of stress.*
A Japanese study of university students found that 200 mg of L-theanine led to increased brain alpha-waves and a subjective sense of relaxation.* In the same study, L-theanine administration also caused a dose-dependent relaxed, yet alert, state of mind without sedation, beginning approximately 40 minutes after ingestion.*
L-theanine can enhance the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, and it appears to play a role in the formation of GABA – a neurotransmitter that acts like a “brake” during times of runaway stress.* L-theanine helps establish balance in the neurotransmitter system, resulting in improvements in the mental/emotional and physical disturbances resulting from being overly stressed.*
Deproloft-HF by Thorne 20% off
Here is what Thorne has to say:
Deproloft-HF is safe and effective for mood enhancement and stress management.* It combines several well-known neurotransmitter-supportive nutrients, including L-tyrosine, 5-HTP, and GABA with two adrenal-supportive botanicals – Rhodiola and Eleutherococcus (a well-known adaptogen that provides general adrenal support.* Deproloft-HF includes the active forms of folate (5MTHF) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) to support healthy neurological function and mood.*
GABA is provided as the patented, all natural-source PharmaGABA®. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that helps alleviate stress and supports a calm, relaxed state of mind.*
The “HF” in Deproloft-HF means “Hypericum free” because it contains no Hypericum (St. John’s wort), which makes it suitable for individuals taking a medication metabolized by the CYP3A4 enzyme.* It is also non-habit forming.
