Decreases cortisol levels and provides ingredients important for calm, sleep, and management of blood sugar
Lagerstroemia speciosa (Banaba) leaf extract (2% corosolic acid): Corosolic acid selectively inhibits 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 1 (11β-HSD1), an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of cortisone into cortisol (1,2).* In a randomized study, corosolic acid was shown to significantly lower blood glucose levels by 20-30% after two weeks (3).*
Phosphatidylserine: Component of cell membranes important for receptor-mediated interactions (4).* Phosphatidylserine is thought to interact with cell membranes in order to dampen hypothalamic signaling and regulate the stress response (5).*
Glycine: Major inhibitory neurotransmitter that crosses the blood-brain barrier (6).* Binds receptors that regulate temperature during sleep (7).*
Taurine: Neuroprotective amino acid that provides antioxidant protection and demonstrates GABA-A agonist activity (8-10).* GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain important for calm and sleep (11-13).
