- Supports a State of Calmness and Relaxation
- Increases Serotonin and GABA production in the Brain
- Addresses Neurotransmitter Signaling Systems
- Supports Occasional Sleeplessness
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that regulate mood, memory, sleep cycle and daily stress. Adequate neurotransmitter production depends on an adequate supply of amino acids, vitamins and minerals in the diet.
Placid is a comprehensive formula designed to address daily stress by increasing the production of the calming neurotransmitters serotonin and gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA). Placid also includes key ingredients that quickly increase the production of alpha brain waves resulting in a relaxed and effortless state of alertness.
3 capsules taken 1-3 times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
L-theanine is an amino acid found abundantly in green tea. L-theanine has been shown to quickly improve stress perception and resilience.
Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. GABA provides a calming effect and is a primary component of the body’s stress-fighting mechanisms. Placid includes a patented, naturally-sourced, non-synthetic form of GABA called PharmaGABATM. It is produced naturally by the friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus hilgardii. In contrast to synthetic GABA sources, PharmaGABATM has been shown in published research studies to promote a state of relaxation.
Inositol is a B vitamin that is an important component of cell membrane signaling. As part of the cellular signaling system of the central nervous system, inositol is crucial for the release of neurotransmitters from within the nerve cells.
Taurine is an amino acid that is found abundantly in the brain and has neuroprotective properties.
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid intermediate that is directly converted into the mood-regulating neurotransmitter serotonin.
Taurine is an amino acid that is found abundantly in the brain and has neuroprotective properties. Placid includes essential nutrients that are required for the synthesis of serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters. This includes 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), vitamin B6 (P-5-P), vitamin C, zinc and magnesium.
