Thankfully it is now being acknowledged (20/7/22) that anxiety and depression are NOT caused by “low serotonin”, the falsehood that Bigpharma have been peddling for 20+ years so that they could anaesthetise people’s minds with their Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) from which they have made billions!
So what does account for the sometimes mild, sometimes highly, debilitating feeling of anxiousness and depression?
This question has been asked by philosophers through the ages and it’s clear there is not one single explanation.
Reluctant though we are to replace the model of one “low neurotransmitter” with another, it is evident that happy, calm folks have high levels of Phenylethylamine (PEA) (as measured by its metabolite in the urine) in their brains.
PEA is the neuro-amine we naturally produce when we feel calm, happy and joyful. PEA has been coined the “love molecule” since the molecule flows in abundance when we fall in love and when we are in the state of “flow”. And, long-distance runners have high levels which partially explains the “anti-depressant” effect of endurance exercise.
Conversely low mood and depression are characterised by low levels of PEA metabolite in the urine, and in trials, supplementation with PEA has been shown to lift mood and improve motivation very quickly.
Clearly, feeling happy with an inner calm and a zest for life is a state that everyone should aspire to especially since high levels of PEA accompany this state and PEA is importantly known as a neurodegenerative molecule, meaning the nervous system will stay youthful and flexible.
With this in mind we have combined the superfood Klamath blue-green algae, nature’s richest source of PEA with a special extract from the algae which concentrates the PEA even further to create CalmLIFT to help if you are struggling to find the motivation to change your life, get to the root cause of your low mood or even if you just want to feel calmer, more focussed or to sleep better.
Take 2 capsules on rising and one before lunch and evening meal.
Organic extracts from Klamath blue-green algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae), the food which has the highest concentration of phenylethylamine (PEA), the neuro-amine we produce naturally in the brain when we feel calm, happy and joyful.
PEA is known for its proven neuro-regenerating properties and ability to improve mental acuity, concentration, mood and to lift mild to moderate depression. People suffering with depression have low levels of PEA as measured by the main PEA metabolite in their urine and supplementing with 10-60mg of PEA has been shown to lift 60% of clinically diagnosed depressions.
PEA is the neuro-amine we naturally produce when we feel calm, happy and joyful. PEA has been coined the “love molecule” by scientists since the molecule flows in abundance when we fall in love and when we are in the state of “flow”. Long-distance runners have naturally high levels partially explaining the anti-depressant effect of endurance exercise.
Organic Klamath algae is a primordial algae with a remarkable nutritional profile uniquely beneficial for the human body. It contains a myriad of molecules that act as precursors for the manufacture of neurotransmitters along with 14 vitamins (including the full range of B vitamins necessaryl for the health of the nervous system). Powerful anti-oxidant molecules exclusive to blue-green algae, which enable the PEA molecule to survive the gastro-intestinal tract and access the central nervous system. These molecules also protect brain cells from toxins generated from the environment, stress and poor dietary habits – important factors in the development of neurodegenerative diseases generally. A broad spectrum of carotenoids in the cis and trans forms, important for their general anti-oxidant effect on the nervous system and body generally. 14 vitamins including the full range of B vitamins and a wide range of organic minerals necessary for the health of the brain and nervous system.
Organic Grape extract has a high level of resveratrol which has been shown to be an excellent regulator of the sleep-wake rhythms as well as improving non-REM sleep, which is believed to be the most important aspect of sleeping properly.
