Neurozen How It Works
We all want to master the art of Zen. To attain a calm and steady mind and have the ability to flow through our days without the stress and worry we tend to encounter. However, true tranquility is hard to achieve, even after years of meditation and training. At NeuroRealm, we have created a blend of natural ingredients that can assist in tackling everyday stressors and obtaining a goal of complete mindfulness.
Our stress reducing, mental clarifying blend starts with L-theanine and Magnesium. Chemicals in your brain called neurotransmitters such as gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin and dopamine are elevated with L-Theanine. This non-protein amino acid does this by triggering a release of alpha-waves in the brain, which in turn enhances relaxation and regulates emotions. These alpha brain waves are not only enhancing your relaxation, but are associated with “wakeful relaxation”. Thus, you not only get the positive aspects of a peaceful mind, but you do not get the negative aspects of brain fog and fatigue. While L-Theanine is ingested daily, increases in the levels of the amino acid have also shown hippocampal synaptic plasticity which can increase performance in recognition. Magnesium and its benefits may be even more important for the human brain as it is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body. To stay healthy, the body needs appropriate levels of magnesium as it interacts with the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor. Magnesium works in conjunction with this all important protein receptor by blocking the calcium channel. If magnesium levels become too low, it can cause oxidative stress and cell death. Also known as abnormal glutamatergic excitotoxicity, this can be a cause of depression and anxiety.
The powerful adaptogen, Ashwagandha, known commonly as Indian Winter Cherry, contains powerful anti-stress agents sitoindoside and acyl steryl glucosides. These chemical compounds play a role in regulating developmental processes and help to calm the mind and body. Along with enhancing brain and nervous system function, Ashwagandha can also increase your sexual drive by stimulating blood flow circulation and production of nitric oxide. Passion Flower extract works directly with the GABA chemical in the brain. GABA production increases and helps lower brain cell activity leaving you feeling more relaxed. Lastly, we’ve included Rhodiola rosea extract, another adaptogen that decreases your physical and emotional stress by stimulating your serotonin and dopamine levels. Studies show that this extract is vital in the facilitation of neurotransmitters within the brain and that it prevents catecholamine release and cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) elevations which are caused by acute stress, thus reducing overall stress levels. With the help of NeuroZen, you can be present and attentive to all this life has to offer.
