Hemochromatosis Help's Calm & Relax is a topical cream containing a synergistic combination of the health promoting nutrients GABA and L-Theanine. Individually, both ingredients have a wide array of beneficial effects. Together, GABA & L-Theanine work together to help you combat stress and maintain a calm resiliency in today's fast-paced world.
GABA (Gamma-Amino Butyric Acid) is an amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain and nervous system. Its chief role is to inhibit the transmission of signals in the nerves, thereby calming nervous system activity.
As an inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA's effects include:
As a nutritional supplement, GABA has been utilized to calm anxiousness and to elevate mood. Insomnia has shown to be responsive to GABA, whether the problem includes the inability to fall asleep or with difficulty waking in the middle of the night. In effect, GABA is kind of like the "anti-coffee"... in that it helps you relax and unwind from the day!
L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea, and is part of what makes Green Tea so special... the other beneficial nutrient in Green Tea, EGCG, is a major component of Hemochromatosis Help's Antioxidant Supreme.
L-Theanine has relaxing effects and can also improve cognitive function. Other studies have shown that L-Theanine can have a positive effect upon lowering high blood pressure, further demonstrating its relaxing influence upon our bodies.
Similar to GABA, L-Theanine can be fantastic for calming an over-excited nervous system. Research has demonstrated that stress-relieving effects are noticed within 30 minutes and can last up to 8-10 hours.
Day or night, who wouldn't want that?
Additionally, L-Theanine has shined in research studies looking at cognitive functionality. Improvements are seen across the board in alertness and cognitive function, all while people experience a pleasant state of calmness and contentedness.
Similar to Hemochromatosis Help's Turmeric Cream, absorption of GABA is significantly better by the skin than in our gut. GABA is poorly absorbed in the digestive system. That means that a capsule, tablet, powder, or liquid preparation of GABA goes largely unused by your body! The enhanced absorption of GABA through the skin means much less quantity is needed to achieve your sought after benefits.
With benefits such as stress reduction, better sleep, cognitive improvement, and improving your overall sense of well being, you can easily see why we recommend to "Keep Calm & Relax On!"
