Description: Stress resilience and maintaining a positive mental outlook are two factors that are as important to our health as eating a healthy diet. Stress Response is formulated to support a positive mental outlook and a relaxed, focused state. Stress Response includes amino acid precursors and bioactive nutrients that support healthy levels of neurotransmitters such as GABA, serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid intermediate that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and converts into serotonin, as well as melatonin, which helps to improve mood and sleep cycle regulation.
PharmaGABA is a natural form of GABA which easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and has been shown to increase the production of alpha brain waves, resulting in enhanced relaxation.
Theanine (Suntheanine ®)
L-theanine is a unique amino acid found exclusively in tea leaves. L-theanine has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, supporting GABA function and promoting alpha brain wave activity.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. Dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine help regulate mood, memory and concentration.
Mucuna pruriens, commonly known as Velvet bean, contains standardized doses of l-dopa. L-dopa is the direct precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine which helps maintain a positive mental outlook, motivation and interest in life, and is also important for supporting cognitive function.
As a major constituent of cell membranes, inositol plays a major role in the phosphoinositol signaling system which helps activate the release of neurotransmitters from within the nerve cell.
Key Nutrient Cofactors
Stress Response provides key cofactors to enhance neurotransmitter synthesis including vitamin C, zinc, B12 (methylcobalamin), B6 (Pyridoxal-5' Phosphate), B3 (niacinamide), magnesium, and 5-MTHF (l-5-methyltetrahydrofolate).
Suggested Use: 4 capsules one to two times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
