  • GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a naturally occurring amino acid in the brain and is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS). GABA blocks nerve impulses, slowing down neuron activity and preventing nerve cells from over-firing. Frequent over-firing, often caused by stress, can lead to brain cell death. Optimizing GABA levels can help prevent neuronal death from stress. Thus, GABA combats the negative effects from stress and anxiety felt by over 80% of Canadians.
  • ACTIV-B™ contains the entire spectrum of B vitamins to support adrenal and neurological functions. It features activated forms of vitamins B2, B6, and B12; benfotiamine, a fat soluble, more physiologically active form of thiamine and folate as Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability over calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF.
  • CALM SYNERGY™ is an innovative powdered drink mix without flavoring components. It contains a blend of ingredients that supports the body's natural synthesis of catecholamines, the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, hormonal balance, and healthy glucose metabolism. CALM SYNERGY™ aims to promote a calm, relaxed, well-balanced emotional and physiological state.
  • CURCU380™ is a patent pending, highly bioavailable curcuminoid formulation. This product contains a unique combination of three bioactive, health-promoting curcuminoids: curcumin, bisdemethoxy curcumin and demethoxy curcumin, along with turmeric oil. The three curcuminoids are the strongest, most protective and best researched constituents of the turmeric root.
  • Magnesium Glycinate is one of the best absorbed forms of magnesium. Each capsule provides 150mg of elemental magnesium. This product should not cause any of the unfavorable gastrointestinal symptoms associated with magnesium supplementation due to the very stable chelate. Magnesium is an essential mineral that serves as an enzyme cofactor for over three hundred biochemical reactions in the body, including those of glycolysis, the first step in harnessing energy from carbohydrates.
  • 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor to serotonin. In the body, the essential amino acid tryptophan (when acted upon by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase) converts to 5-HTP. The compound is subsequently decarboxylated to serotonin, thereby elevating extracellular serum serotonin levels. Serotonin regulates many normal brain activities, increases norepinephrine and dopamine, and is important in regulating mood and behavior. Adequate levels of serotonin are associated with normal calmness and relaxation.Several studies have demonstrated that 5-HTP supports a healthy frame of mind, good energy levels, ease of movement, and restful sleep.
