Try This Uplifting All Natural Herbal Product
Supports the mind and body during times of "burn out" or extreme stress. It also provides nutrients commonly deficient with depression.
INDICATIONS MAY INCLUDE:
Stress, anxiety, depression and moodiness.
VITAMIN B-6 (PYRI-5-PHOS): A common deficiency which can affect brain function and can contribute to depression and moody behavior. This is because it is a major co-factor in the production of serotonin, a mood elevator in the brain.
FOLIC ACID: Also known as Vitamin B9 or Folate, it plays an important role in facilitating many body processes. Among them are cell maintenance and repair, synthesis of DNA, amino acid metabolism and formation of red and white blood cells. A study appearing in the JOURNAL OF NEUROLOGY, NEUROSURGERY AND PSYCHIATRY titled "Homocysteine, folate, methylation, and monoamine metabolism in depression" tells us that "Although folate deficiency is often the result of depression due to poor diet, there is evidence from controlled studies that whether the deficiency is secondary or primary, folate replacement will enhance recovery of the mental state, probably by a mechanism linking methylation in the nervous system to mood".
ST. JOHNS WORT** Standardized Extract 150 mg. (Hypericum perforatum): The historical use of medical St. John's wort is well documented. The first recorded use of Hypericum for medicinal purposes dates back to ancient Greece, and it has been used ever since. Hypericum was also used by Native Americans. Commencing 2400 years ago St. John's Wort was used as a nerve tonic, a painkiller for arthritis, menstrual cramping, gastrointestinal problems (such as diarrhea, nausea) as well as ulcers. St John's Wort is today most widely known as an herbal treatment for depression. In some countries, such as Germany, Hypericum is prescribed for mild depression far more commonly than synthetic antidepressant medication. In most countries, standardized extracts are available over the counter – usually in tablet or capsule form, and also in teabags and tinctures.The effect mechanism is believed to be the inhibition of monoamine oxidase (MAO).
GOTU KOLA 145 mg. (Hydrocotyle asiatica): Studies show that Gotu Kola relieves stress and anxiety. It is known as a powerful brain tonic and is known for its ability to enhance mental ability. It supports and improves comprehension, memory and recollection. Primary evidence suggests that Gotu Kola may be used to revitalize the brain and nervous system, increase attention span and concentration. It is not related to the Kola Nut and does not contain caffeine.
SIBERIAN GINSENG ROOT (Eleutherococcus senticosis): Provides an adaptogenic effect. Ginseng has long been used to strengthen vitality and act as a tonic.It helps the body to regenerate the glands and has been found effective in aiding the body to handle stress. It is an adaptogen helping normalize body, functions and regenerate itself.
L-TYROSINE: A common deficiency which can adversely affect brain function. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid. It is not essential for human nutrition, since the human body can produce L-tyrosine on its own. However, supplementation can be beneficial for these following conditions: Depression, ADHD, Stress, PMS, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Research shows that St. John's Wort interacts with some drugs. The herb affects the way the body processes or breaks down many drugs; in some cases, it may speed or slow a drug's breakdown. Drugs that can be affected include:
• Indinavir and possibly other drugs used to control HIV infection
• Irinotecan and possibly other drugs used to treat cancer
• Cyclosporine, which prevents the body from rejecting transplanted organs
• Digoxin, which strengthens heart muscle contractions
• Warfarin and related anticoagulants
• Birth control pills
