Why it's Good
Contains magnesium in the best absorbed form
Magnesium in its citrate form is readily absorbed into the bloodstream to exert its calming and relaxing effect. It regulates the nervous system and may help you cope with stress, which can lead to less anxiety, fear, nervousness, restlessness and irritability.
Formulated with rhodiola
Rhodiola naturally supports the adrenal glands regulating the production of stress hormones. Along with the naturally occurring compound L-theanine, our formula also contains the naturally occurring compound L-theanine, which helps promote a sense of relaxation while maintaining mental alertness. This means it reduces the symptoms of stress without affecting performance.

Our Honest Opinion
Low magnesium status has been associated with anxiety. Existing evidence suggests that magnesium supplementation can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and stress, however larger studies have been called for to confirm this. Studies on animals and isolated neuronal cells have revealed that herbal adaptogens exhibit neuroprotective, anti-fatigue, anti-depressive and anti-anxiety activity. In addition, a number of clinical trials demonstrate that adaptogens, by supporting the adrenal glands, exert an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental work capacity against a background of stress and fatigue, particularly in tolerance to mental exhaustion and enhanced attention.
Chronic magnesium deficiency is known to cause a broad range of nervous symptoms
Chronic magnesium deficiency is known to cause a broad range of nervous symptoms, including anxiety, panic attacks, nervousness, insomnia, rapid pulse, palpitations, and abnormal heart rhythms. Studies indicate that the hormone adrenaline depletes magnesium in the body. Bodily functions affected by adrenaline include heart rate, blood pressure, blood vessel constriction and muscle contraction. All of these processes deplete magnesium, particularly when the body experiences prolonged stress. If the body lacks adequate magnesium to relax muscles and arteries, then heart muscle becomes susceptible to spasm, and blood pressure may increase.
L-theanine has a powerful relaxing effect on most people
L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea leaves. Studies have found L-theanine supplements may be more effective than some commonly prescribed relaxing agents. It promotes a relaxed state by blocking receptors in the brain involved with nerve excitation.
Rhodiola, also known as golden root, is an adaptogenic herb that can help your body adapt to physical, chemical and environmental stress.
Research shows that rhodiola helps balance cortisol levels, the body’s stress hormone. Rhodiola can be helpful for calming your body when your nervous system goes into fight-or-flight mode caused by dealing with everyday stressors. High cortisol levels over an extended period of time may contribute to accelerated signs of aging, higher levels of psychosocial stress, poorer cognitive performance, atrophy of memory-related structures of the brain, weight gain and exhaustion.
Lemon balm relieves anxiety, promotes sleep and soothes agitation
Studies of lemon balm have produced impressive results with regard to stress reduction.
A recent study of lemon balm has demonstrated that lemon balm extracts had the ability to bind to receptors that trigger relaxation and reduce anxiety in the brain. It also suggested that lemon balm extract helped volunteers to cope with psychological and emotional stress without any loss of cognitive function.
