Stress in America Is Gnawing Away at Our Overall Well-Being
Each year, the American Psychological Association (APA) surveys people across the United States about stress: its sources; its intensity; and how people are responding to stressors, both mentally and physically. Their 2020 survey is different. It reveals that Americans have been profoundly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and these compounding stressors are having real consequences on our minds and bodies.
It is the unusual combination of these factors and the persistent drumbeat of a crisis that shows no sign of abating that is leading APA to sound the alarm: We are facing a national mental health crisis that could yield serious health and social consequences for years to come. 2
L-theanine (also called theanine, or sometimes r-glutamylethylamide) is an amino acid that impacts nerve impulses in the brain and the release of neurotransmitters, including GABA. It is known as natural ananxiolytic because it can have a calming, sedative effect on the body and mind without making you feel drowsy — which is why it’s often used to reduce anxiety, hyperactivity and sleep-related problems.5
Gaba L-Theanine promotes relaxation and facilitates sleep by contributing to several changes in the brain. L-theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness, and sleep, as well as appetite, energy, and other cognitive skills. 6
Gaba L-Theanine helps:
Boosts levels of calming brain chemicals Lowers levels of “excitatory” brain chemicals Enhances alpha brain waves which are associated with a state of “wakeful relaxation”.7
Melatonin is nicknamed the “Miracle Molecule” for a reason.
Melatonin, a hormone produced by your body, has been shown to improve symptoms of anxiety. Supplementing with melatonin for anxiety can improve sleep quality, regulate circadian rhythm, and ease negative feelings associated with anxiousness. Your hormone levels play a key role in your emotional state. Because of this, a hormonal imbalance can lead to anxiety.8
Melatonin is important because it tells your body when it’s time to sleep and when it’s time to wake up. Your body produces higher levels of melatonin at night. Levels begin to rise once the sun sets and drop in the morning as the sun rises. The light you are exposed to each day, plus your own internal body clock, determine how much melatonin your body will produce.9
Melatonin is derived from the amino acid tryptophan and the neurotransmitter serotonin. Melatonin has many important functions in the body, including and may support with:
GABA acts to slow or block certain nerve signals in the brain, sometimes reducing feelings of anxiety. L-Theanine is known as natural anxiolytic because it can have a calming, sedative effect on the body and mind without making you feel drowsy, which is why it’s often used to reduce stress, anxiety, hyperactivity and sleep-related problems. Melatonin assists with proper sleep and overall well being. Without enough sleep and deep R.E.M. sleep the body cannot fight off the horrible effects of STRESS. Consistent, deep, healing sleep is critical for providing stress relief.
