Stress Pro is a relaxant that helps with anxiety, stress, and can aid with sleep if taken at night.

L-tryptophan is an amino acid that helps your body make proteins and control some chemicals in the brain. The body changes L-Tryptophan into serotonin which helps control mood and sleep. It has also been shown to help control anxiety and stress levels by reducing the hormone cortisol.[1] [2] Additionally, clinical studies have shown that L-Tryptophan actually has a lasting effect on the brain in reducing stress and cortisol levels.[3]

GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells and the brain. It works by inhibiting the neural cells in the brain and central nervous system which in turn reduces stress, helping to create a calm mood, and helping maintain mental balance. Studies have also shown that GABA not only reduces anxiety, but also helps to induce relaxation.[4]

Magnesium maintaining healthy levels of magnesium helps the nervous system resist feeling stressed. Magnesium increases GABA levels in the body. Magnesium also helps to restrict the release of stress hormone and actually helps to filter them and prevent them from entering the brain. Magnesium also helps the brain’s ability to heal itself and make new neural connections (Brain plasticity/neuroplasticity) which can help teach your brain to become less anxious.[5] [6] [7]

B6 helps the body produce serotonin (mood regulator) and norepinephrine helping the body cope with stress.
