Health Benefits at a Glance:
Many people experience feelings of stress. Research has shown that many unique compounds and certain probiotics can help reduce feelings of stress. Moreover, they can also promote relaxation, and support a positive mood. Positive Mood Kit brings a unique mix of probiotics and natural ingredients together in a ready-to-use kit. The ingredients in this kit offer a natural supplement system to curb stress and enhance your mood.
Why it Works:
Feeling stressed is, unfortunately, an all-too-common health woe of modern life. There is no doubt that a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and regular exercise can help reducing stress. However, research has found that certain natural ingredients can have a calming effect and encourage a positive mood. Positive Mood Kit contains a unique mix of natural ingredients that provide a one-of-a-kind support strategy for positive mood and relaxation.
FLORASSIST® Mood provides a special kind of probiotic bacteria that can positively influence the signaling between the gastrointestinal tract and the nervous system. Enhanced Stress Relief contains two well-researched compounds that can promote relaxation and support a positive mood by targeting special biochemical pathways in the brain. Finally, Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate provides a unique form of easily-absorbable magnesium that also supports a positive mood.
Taken together, the active ingredients in these three products offer a unique anti-stress system. Thereby they bring a wealth of mood and relaxation supporting ingredients together in one kit.
About FLORASSIST® Mood:
Probiotics are known to thrive in the gut and support digestive health. It is not widely known, however, that these beneficial bacteria also interact with different bodily systems. Research suggests that specific probiotics influence biochemical messaging between the gastrointestinal tract and the nervous system. This can result in positive effects on your mood.
Two daily capsules of FLORASSIST™ Mood provide three billion colony-forming units of these specific probiotic strains to naturally promote relaxation and improve mood.
About Enhanced Stress Relief:
It is hard to find a natural antidote to today’s overstressed world. The encouraging news is that lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) has been clinically proven to help to promote sleep and relaxation. As a perennial herb in the mint family native to the Mediterranean region, it induces calming effects while enhancing memory and attention. Cyracos lemon balm extract is prepared from the special lemon balm, chosen for its high concentrations of hydroxycinnamic and rosmarinic acids. Aside from relieving everyday stress and sleep problems, it helps smokers to deal with quitting-related mental stress. Individuals who follow calorie-restricted diet may also benefit from this extract that helps to level mood swings and to reduce the emotional hunger associated with dieting.
The Japanese have long known that L-theanine, an amino acid derived from green tea, is a natural relaxant that diminishes stress, without side effects. Nowadays, the effect it has on the brain is compared with meditation, massage, and aromatherapy. Some of the benefits include relaxation and a sense of wellbeing. Moreover, L-Theanine enhances the ability to concentrate, to learn and to remember, as proven by scientific research. Subsequently, the levels of hormone dopamine are brought back to normal that usually are hampered during stressful times.
About Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate:
Magnesium is essential for more than 300 different biochemical reactions in the body — from cardiovascular and bone health support to energy metabolism support, mood support and most especially magnesium can also contribute to your cognitive function. Unfortunately, it’s hard to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain - especially since magnesium levels in the body decrease with normal aging.
Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate supports healthy memory and cognition by optimizing magnesium levels in the brain. Because of its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system, Neuro-Mag® provides the ideal form of magnesium for enhanced memory and cognitive function.
The Science Behind the Product:
Each of the products in Positive Mood Kit is based on scientific research:
Human clinical trials on a dual-probiotic combination consisting of Lactobacillus helveticus strain R0052 and Bifidobacterium longum strain R0175 have demonstrated improvements in mood, promotion of relaxation and reduction in perceived stress.
Enhanced Stress Relief:
Studies have already proven the plentiful benefits that come with an optimal level of L-theanine. Where cell neurons are concerned, L-theanine has been shown in vitro to reverse neurotoxicity, a major cause of brain aging. Based on much research showing the multiple beneficial effects of lemon balm extract and L-theanine, Life Extension has combined these potent and safe nutrients into a formula, called Enhanced Stress Relief. Note that the amount of L-theanine in this product is double than most L-theanine standalone supplements. The reason for the potency increase lies behind reports of greater benefit when at least 200 mg of L-theanine is taken.
Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate:
Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions and 600 enzymatic reactions in the body. Furthermore, magnesium is also needed to support cardiovascular, bone health, energy metabolism, glucose metabolism, mood, sleep and vitamin D status.
Magnesium L-threonate is a powerful form of magnesium that is delivered into the brain where it can maintain the quantity of synaptic connections between brain cells. It can also support important brain signaling pathways. Increased brain magnesium levels can improve memory. It was shown in compelling animal models that Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate improved short-term memory by 18% and long-term memory by 100%.
The problem with many magnesium supplements is that they are not absorbed well enough into the nervous system. In order to solve this issue, a powerful form of magnesium known as L-threonate has been created. It was shown that this particular form of magnesium can target the aging brain and nervous system. In pre-clinical models, the magnesium L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® increased magnesium levels in spinal fluid by 15% compared to no increase observed with traditional magnesium.
