Calm-PRT works to decrease stress by reducing elevated cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine levels. This product was designed with high-potency Rhodiola rosea and phosphatidyl serine to be used to relieve stress, anxiety and restlessness.
NeuroScience specifically formulated Calm-PRT with a combination of ingredients that are designed not only to relieve stress, but to restore communication within the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.
What is the HPA Axis?
The HPA, or hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, consists of a complex set of interactions between two parts of the brain (hypothalamus and pituitary gland) and the adrenal glands, which are located atop the kidneys. The HPA axis regulates many things within the body, such as digestion, temperature, mood, immune function, energy, and libido. The HPA axis also plays a major role in how the body reacts to stress. A poorly functioning HPA axis can contribute to anxiety, mood swings, or irritable bowel syndrome. Studies show that the HPA axis is activated in various different ways when people are exposed to stressful situations. Calm-PRT is designed to help regulate the HPA axis with natural ingredients.
Active Ingredients in NeuroScience’s Calm-PRT
Rhodiola rosea: An extract of the adaptogen, Rhodiola rosea, was used in Calm-PRT because of its biologically-active rosavins. It may help you manage mental fatigue. The standardized production ensures that each capsule contains 16% rosavins, which are included for their stress relief and fatigue fighting abilities.
SerinAid: Calm-PRT also contains SerinAid, which is a high-quality preparation of phosphatidylserine. As a major component of cell membranes, phosphatidylserine has been shown in studies to restore desensitized cortisol receptors inside the HPA axis. Phosphatidylserine is also being studied for its role in improving memory and cognition; it can be found in foods, but usually in very small quantities.
Glycine and taurine are both included for additional inhibitory neurotransmitter support.
Glycine: Glycine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning that it’s one the body can produce. It’s essential to maintaining a healthy central nervous system and digestive function. Recently it has been studied for its antioxidant capabilities. In the body, glycine is used along with other amino acids to help create muscle tissue and convert glucose to energy.
Taurine: Some research suggests that the amino acid taurine may improve athletic performance. It is used by the body to support neurological function, and it also helps regulate the level of mineral salts and water in the blood. Taurine is also believed to be a powerful antioxidant. It can be found in meat, fish, and breast milk.
