Adequate neurotransmitter production is essential to endocrine health and the regulation of mood, memory, sleep cycle and daily stress. High levels of stress, dietary deficiencies, genetics, medications and toxins play a role in the depletion of neurotransmitters. Cerenity’s formula includes elements that address daily stress by increasing the production of calming neurotransmitters, serotonin and gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA). Cerenity also contains key ingredients to help support relaxation and an effortless state of awareness.
L-theanine is an amino acid found abundantly in green tea that is shown to quickly improve stress perception and resilience. L-theanine is connected to its ability to increase serotonin and dopamine production in the brain. In addition, L-theanine significantly increases alpha brain wave activity, which is essential for increasing attention and promoting relaxation. Studies have shown that those who supplement with L-theanine have a significantly higher brain wave activity versus the placebo.
Orthomolecular states, “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.” PharmaGABA has been shown in published research to promote relaxation in the central nervous system rather than other products having synthetically-produced GABA.
Inositol & Taurine
Inositol is a B vitamin that is important element of cell membrane signaling. As a crucial part of cell membrane signaling, inositol is essential for the release of neurotransmitters from within the nerve cells. A deficiency of inositol can easily affect brain signaling, resulting in inadequate neurotransmitter release, creating irritability, worry and restlessness. Taurine is an amino acid found abundantly in the brain and has neuroprotective properties. This amino acid promotes inhibitory neurotransmission due to its ability to activate GABA receptors. It also supports inhibitory neurotransmission by triggering glycine receptors in the brain.
According to Orthomolecular, “5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid intermediate that is directly converted into the mood-regulating neurotransmitter serotonin. Maintaining a healthy serotonin level is important for regulating appetite and sleep cycle and for supporting a sense of calmness.” This supplement is produced naturally from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplifolia, and provides an efficient conversion into serotonin for optimal relaxation and rest.
Cerenity also includes essential nutrients that are required for the synthesis of serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters. These nutrients include 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), vitamin B6, vitamin C, zinc and magnesium. 5-MTHF is needed for proper mood regulation and works well together with B12 as a methyl group donor, which maintains neurotransmitter synthesis. Magnesium is a mineral that has shown to significantly calm the nervous system by binding to glutamate receptors, reducing excitatory neurotransmitter activity. The combination of these minerals in Cerenity promote optimal endocrine health, allowing for significant neuroprotection, fixing deficiencies in the body and combating stress.
