What's it made of

Ashwagandha to support a healthy stress response, calm mind, and emotional wellbeing.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that helps you to better adapt and respond to stress, providing balance and vitality to your mind and body. Studies show that it helps to lower stress and anxiety, lowers cortisol levels, and improves sleep quality. Ashwagandha also can help to increase testosterone and DHEA-S levels, improve feelings of fatigue, and support athletic performance.

We use a superior form of ashwagandha that provides the largest amount of withanolide glycosides available!  Shoden® ashwagandha is the only one on the market that provides 35% Withanolide Glycosides, giving you the highest bioavailablity of a full spectrum ashwagandha. This greatly exceeds the withanolide content that other companies provide, including those with KSM 66 and Sensoril extracts. Shoden® is the world's most potent ashwagandha extract, and we ensured that you got the best. Shoden is a fabulous adaptogen to use whether you have high or low cortisol levels, as it helps the body adapt to the stress response, aiding in nourishing the adrenal glands based on individual needs.

Magnolia Bark Extract to improve your mood, improve sleep, & soothe anxious feelings

Magnolia bark, also known as Magnolia officinalis, comes from the Houpo magnolia tree, which has been used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine for sleep and relaxtion. According to research, magnolia barks helps reduce feelings of anxiety, boosts mood, improves sleep quality, and lowers cortisol levels. Magnolia has also been widely studied for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant capabilities. We choose a standardized extract made with 2% honokiol to ensure for quality and efficacy.

Eleuthero Root Extract for a natural energy boost & stress protection

Eleuthero is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine. Also known as Siberian ginseng, Studies show that eleuthero can help boost energy and endurance, support stress management, reduce fatigue, and provide immune support by increasing T-helper and NK activity. According to research, it also protects your central nervous system from the effects of stress and can improve mood, while also assisting in blood sugar management.

L-Theanine for stress management and relaxation

L-theanine is an amino acid found naturally in green tea that helps put you into an alert state of relaxation (without drowsiness) by increasing α-brain waves. Studies show that it helps reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, improves sleep quality, aids in mental performance, and diminishes symptoms associated with PMS. We use Sun-theanine ®, a patented form, to ensure purity and reliability. L-theanine doesn't act as a sleep aid itself, but promotes a restful, focused, and peaceful mind, which in turn can promote more restful, quality sleep.

Holy Basil for hormonal balancing, mood lift & stress reduction

Holy Basil is an ancient ayurvedic herb, also known as Tulsi.  No- this is not your typical pantry basil. Holy basil is a "jack of all trades" adaptogen! Research shows that it helps counteract your body’s stress response by stabilizing blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood lipid levels. This can help to not only support stress management, but improve insulin sensitivity and your mood.

Additional benefits to holy basil include liver support, cognitive enhancement, and anti-bacterial properties. Research shows that It also supports inflammation and the immune system.
