Frequently Asked Questions
How does L-theanine help induce relaxation? Answer »To induce your body’s natural relaxation response, L-theanine crosses the blood brain barrier and interacts with brain chemicals, including GABA, which trigger a relaxation response. It also helps stimulate alpha brain waves, which promote deep relaxation. Studies have shown that L-theanine’s relaxation properties occur without inducing drowsiness.
How do adaptogens like Rhodiola Rosea help with stress management? Answer »Adaptogens are herbs that support the body’s ability to return quickly to homeostasis. After a stressor activates the body’s natural stress response, the body usually returns to a pre-stressed state after the stressor has passed. When situations continue to place stress on the body, or when they body experiences frequent stressors, the body can stop returning to a relaxed state, remaining in a perpetual state of stress. Stress Formula includes Rhodiola Rosea, which supports the body’s ability to return to its pre-stressed state.
