Supplement of the Month: Botanicalm PM & Cerenity
This month we are introducing two supplements by Orthomolecular Products that we carry at TWIHW.
Botanicalm PM*is formulated to induce the relaxation needed to support better sleep for those experiencing temporary sleeplessness. The formula includes valerian root, a well-known herb used to help with sleep-related issues and to produce a state of relaxation. Passionflower and jujube have been used historically to produce a state of relaxation and have been used in those with overstimulation and scattered thoughts. L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, supports resilience to stress by increasing alpha brain wave activity. Hops strobile extract works in synergy with these ingredients to naturally reduce stress and induce sleep.
Cerenity* is designed to address daily stress by increasing production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that regulate mood, memory, sleep cycle and daily stress. High levels of stress, dietary deficiencies, genetic factors, medications and toxins all play a role in neurotransmitter depletion and imbalance. The nutrients in Cerenity support healthy neurotransmitter levels for balancing the stress response. L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, has been shown to quickly improve stress perception and resilience. PharmaGABA™, a patented and naturally sourced form of GABA, has been shown to promote relaxation in the central nervous system. 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid intermediate that is directly converted into the mood-regulating neurotransmitter serotonin. Taurine is an amino acid that activates GABA receptors. Inositol is crucial for the release of neurotransmitters from within nerve cells. The essential micronutrients included in Cerenity aid in the synthesis of serotonin and GABA. The support of these neurotransmitters helps promote a relaxed mental state, positive outlook and restful sleep cycle.
