Tranquilene has been scientifically formulated to reduce stress levels using the latest advances in the
fields of psychology, nutrition, herbal medicine and neuroscience. Tranquilene is the only all-natural supplement
that offers a complete set of building–block nutrients for Serotonin and GABA – the two most important brain
chemicals for keeping you calm, relaxed and focused.
Our laboratory follows strict quality–assurance procedures when manufacturing Tranquilene. Our product contains only standardized plant extracts and pharmaceutical–grade amino acids and nutrients to ensure maximum purity and potency.
Tryptophan is the number 1 supplement purchased for stress issues. It is an essential amino acid that the body converts into 5-HTP (5-hydroxy-tryptophan), and then to Serotonin. Serotonin is involved in mood, appetite, sleep and impulse control. Once the Serotonin neurotransmitter is made, the brain is able to convert it into melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone, at night.
For centuries, herbal medicine practitioners have used Passion Flower as a natural remedy for nervousness, frequent worry and sleeplessness. Modern studies shows that Passion Flower extract significantly lowers nervous, panicky emotions and promotes a more tranquil frame of mind. Studies also indicate that Passion Flower can reduce stress-related discomfort caused by withdrawal from opiates and other drugs.
L–theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, produces a pronounced feeling of tranquility in as little as 15 minutes. L–theanine increases the activity of GABA, a neurotransmitter (natural messenger in the brain) that promotes relaxation and helps keep your nerves calm. L–theanine also stimulates the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter responsible for confidence and a sense of well–being.
Ashwagandha has been used in the Indian tradition of Ayurveda in health tonics and calming serums. In addition to the raw root, Tranquilene includes a powerful Ashwagandha extract called KSM-66®, which reduced patients' perceived stress levels by 44% in double-blind clinical studies.
Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri)
Often used by Ayurvedic healers to accompany Ashwagandha, Brahmi (a.k.a. Bacopa Monnieri) is a mild sedative that supports the body during periods of emotional stress. Traditionally, Brahmi is prescribed to promote healthy cognitive functions, including focus, concentration, mental endurance and memory. Modern studies have found that Brahmi's calming and panic prevention properties were as potent as those of Lorazepam, with none of the side effects.
Gama Aminobutyric-acid (GABA) is an amino acid and the main inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter in the brain. GABA is a natural calming agent that prevents excessive muscle tension and helps our bodies make endorphins, chemicals that make us feel happy. Deficiencies of GABA in the brain have been linked to insomnia and feeling stressed, tense and depressed.
Getting enough of the many forms of Vitamin B is essential to maintaining proper brain function. Vitamin B is involved in the metabolism, as well as the production of Serotonin. Low levels of Vitamin B have been linked to increased stress levels, nervousness, fatigue, irritability, and emotional instability. Tranquilene contains vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6 and B12.
Vitamin D is widely popularly for its importance in preventing heart conditions, balancing blood pressure, and maintaining strong, healthy bones. Research now shows us that Vitamin D3 is also involved in the process of converting Tryptophan – a key ingredient in Tranquilene – into Serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood. Vitamin D3 helps this process to occur in your brain, where it should, instead of in your gut, where the Serotonin might not be properly utilized.
Calcium is one of the key minerals influencing muscle contraction and calcium deficiency is thought to play a major role in panic. Deficiencies in calcium can make the muscle tension effects of stress more pronounced.
Magnesium deficiency is one of the leading causes of elevated and persistent stress and nervousness – and the western diet tends to be lacking in this critical element. Research now shows that as magnesium levels drop, stress levels increase.
Niacinamide, the safest form of vitamin B3, works with the body to convert Tryptophan into 5-HTP, which can then be converted into Serotonin. Without B3, Tryptophan–5HTP conversion cannot take place. Common symptoms of B3 deficiency include irritability, poor concentration, nervousness, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and low mood. We chose niacinamide over niacin to prevent the side effect of red flushing that often occurs when taking raw niacin.
