Theanine is the major amino acid found in green tea. It has historically been used for its relaxing and anti-anxiety effects. It is believed that theanine might work for anxiety by increasing levels of GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) and serotonin. In the central nervous system, GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. It is synthesized in the brain by the decarboxylation of glutamate. GABA exerts anticonvulsant, sedative and anxiolytic effects at the cellular level.
Roseroot contains a phenylpropanoid glycoside called salidroside. This constituent is also sometimes referred to as rhodioloside or rhodosine. This constituent is thought to be responsible for roseroot's stimulant, anti-stress and adaptogenic actions (increasing resistance to the harmful effects of stressors). Animal studies are reported to show protection from stressors such as cold and radiation, increased work capacity, decreased fatigue and improved learning and memory. Roseroot extracts might also prevent stress-induced cardiac damage by preventing rises in cardiac catecholamines and cyclic-AMP. Roseroot extracts also demonstrate potential for improving learning and memory.
Ashwagandha is an Indian herb known as Winter Cherry. It tends to be classified as an Indian ginseng. Some researchers think ashwagandha has an anti-stressor effect. Preliminary evidence suggests ashwagandha might suppress stress-induced increases of dopamine receptors in the corpus striatum of the brain. It also appears to reduce stress-induced increases of plasma corticosterone, blood urea nitrogen and blood lactic acid.
Eleuthero, Siberian Ginseng
Siberian Ginseng was discovered in the former northernSoviet Union. It was found to enhance athletic performance and reduce stress. Eleuthero has been shown to enhance mental acuity and physical endurance without the letdown that comes with caffeinated products. Siberian Ginseng is an adaptogen which has a homeostatic or "balancing" effect on the body. Adaptogens help the body deal with stressful conditions because of its homeostatic properties. It is thought to help support adrenal gland function when the body is challenged by stress. In addition to its effect on stress, Eleuthero increases energy, helps to balance the immune system and increases cognitive function.
Passion flower is the perennial blossoming vine that is native to the southeastern United States, Brazil and Argentina. Its medicinal properties come from its above ground part. Passion flower has sedative, hypnotic, anxiolytic and antispasmodic effects. Some evidence suggests the passion flower constituent apigenin binds to central benzodiazepine receptors, possibly causing anxiolytic effects without impairing memory or motor skills. Some studies have pointed to the flavonoids in passion flower as the primary constituents responsible for its relaxing and anti-anxiety effects. It is thought that passion flower may enhance the effectiveness of other anxiety treatments.
Pharmacological activity of brahmi is attributed to the saponin bacoside and bacopasaponin constituents. Some evidence suggests purified bacosides A and B may facilitate learning ability and cognitive performance. Possible mechanisms for cognitive improvement include modulation of acetylcholine release, choline acetylase activity and muscarinic cholinergic receptor binding.
