L-Theanine supports calming and relaxation and the reduction of irritability and low mood states. L-Theanine reduces stress, anxiety and unwanted behavior. It's a naturally-occurring amino acid found in green tea that is a derivative of the neurotransmitter glutamic acid. It also helps the body to produce other calming amino acids such as dopamine, GABA and tryptophan and helps bring certain neurotransmitters into better balance. Studies on L-Theanine showed no adverse effects or drowsiness, and animals remain alert, playful and calmer than expected given their situation.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) helps manage stress and reduces irritability. Thiamine has shown to calm the central nervous system and soothe anxious animals. A deficiency of thiamine can cause mental confusion, muscular weakness, muscle spasms, nervousness, reduced appetite, or weight loss during periods of stress.
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that plays an important role in the production of nervous system messengers, especially those related to relaxation, restfulness and sleep. It is required in the production of serotonin, a calming agent in the brain that improves sleep efficiency.
