Tranquility™ features a blend of classic tonic and relaxant herbal nervines. Tonic nervines are herbs that nourish the nervous system to promote healthy function. Relaxant nervines are herbs that exert a calming effect on excited nerves. These botanicals are useful for promoting mental and physical relaxation. In addition, Tranquility™ promotes healthy levels of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and possesses adaptogenic qualities to support healthy cognitive function and mental performance during stress.*
The amino acid Glycine, as a precursor to GABA, inhibits excitatory neurotransmitters (most notably, noradrenaline). Important for relaxation, Glycine also plays a key role in maintaining healthy functioning of the central nervous system.*
Passion Flower and Skullcap
In herbal traditions worldwide, these herbs are valued as effective remedies for stress, worry and occasional sleeplessness and were combined for this purpose. Passion Flower was a primary herb used by Eclectic Physicians to induce relaxation and improve sleep for those experiencing mental worry and overwork. Skullcap also offers a soothing influence on the nervous system, conducive to relaxation and a natural, restful sleep.*

Cyracos® Lemon Balm
Lemon Balm has been used since antiquity as a calming nervine. The German Commission E formally recommends Lemon Balm to support healthy sleep in nervous states.*
