MG Optima Relax
Looking for a supplement that helps you relax and can improve the quality of your sleep without making you feel drowsy during the daytime?
Then Mg Optima Relax with L-Theanine with Magnesium just might be the answer.
This superior form of Magnesium (bisglycinate chelate) works synergistically with L-theanine and can be helpful in times of stress, restless legs, muscle cramps, mild to moderate depression, and anxiety.
L-THEANINE CROSSES THE BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER
L-theanine is an amino acid found in green and black tea and commonly used as a natural stress reliever. In addition, it can help to improve concentration and focus without making you feel sleepy. As a psychoactive substance, L-Theanine can easily cross the blood-brain barrier, directly working its magic on the central nervous system.
L-theanine is especially beneficial for anxiety sufferers because it increases dopamine and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptors in the brain.
GABA PUTS THE BREAKS ON THE NERVOUS SYTEM
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major neuro transmitter widely distributed throughout the central nervous system (CNS). Because too much excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, insomnia, seizures, and movement disorders, it must be balanced with inhibition. GABA – the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain – provides this inhibition, acting like a “brake” during times of runaway stress.
EVIDENCE BASED SCIENTIFIC STUDIES
Mg OptimaTM Relax contains evidence based ingredients that may support the natural metabolic pathways for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) production and activity, indicated to promote relaxation during times of stress. Albion ® Magnesium bisglycinate is scientifically designed to provide a highly bioavailable form of magnesium.
Magnesium may act as a GABA receptor agonist and also has a binding site on the glutamate receptors helping to regulate the activity of this main excitatory neurotransmitter. Glycine functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the nervous system while glutamine is a precursor to GABA production.2 Theanine is an amino acid from Green Tea that may promote relaxation via binding to glutamate receptors. Pyridoxal (vitamin B6) is a cofactor for the enzyme Glutamate decarboxylase that synthesises GABA from glutamate.4 Zinc also has a binding site on the glutamate receptor
GABA is a chemical receptor that reduces the activity of neurons that it binds to. In other words, it helps slow down the feelings of fear and stress when neurons become over excited.
