Thankfully it is now acknowledged (20/7/22) that anxiety and depression are NOT caused by “low serotonin” and the fraudulent peddling of Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) by Bigpharma for 20+ years has now been exposed!
So what does account for the sometimes mild, sometimes debilitating feelings of anxiety, low mood and lack of motivation that accompanies depression?
Well, reluctant though we are to replace the concept of there being a lack of a certain neurotransmitter underpinning these problems with another, it is clinically relevant to note however, that calm, happy people have high levels of Phenylethylamine (PEA) (as measured by its metabolite in the urine) in the central nervous system compared with people with low mood/depression who have low levels.
And trials have shown that supplementing the diet with PEA has a calming yet stimulating effect, lifting mood and motivation very quickly.
All you need is love
PEA is the neuro-amine we naturally produce when we feel calm, happy and joyful. It has been coined the “love molecule” since it flows freely when we fall in love and when we are in the state of “flow”, a heightened state of concentration where time seems to stand still. Long-distance runners also have high levels of PEA which partially explains the “anti-depressant” effect of exercise.
Conversely, people with low mood/depression have been found to have are low levels of the PEA metabolite in the urine, and trials show that supplementing the diet with PEA lifts mood and motivation very quickly.
With this in mind we have combined nature’s richest source of PEA (Klamath blue-green algae) with a special extract from the algae which concentrates the PEA even further to create CalmLIFT.
Supplementing with CalmLIFT will help alleviate anxiety, low mood and depression while improving motivation and regulating the sleep/wake cycle.
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.
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.
