ESKALOFT CONTAINS RHODIOLA ROSEA EXTRACT (ROOT): grows in the arctic regions of eastern Siberia. It has been
used to enhance work performance, decrease physical and mental fatigue, increase stamina, and improve depressed moods. Rhodiola is considered an adaptogenic herb because of its ability to increase the body۪s resistance to stress. Research shows that those who take Rhodiola experience the following; less fatigue under stress, improved exercise endurance, a decrease in inflammatory markers, such as C-Reactive protein (CRP), improved memory and
improved ability to learn. Other research suggests that Rhodiola also has cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, and myeloprotective effects, while also improving intracellular DNA repair mechanisms. There are no known adverse reactions or contraindications to taking Rhodiola. It is currently not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. ST. JOHN۪S WORT EXTRACT (FLOWER)(HYPERICUM PERFORATUM) (.3% HYPERICIN, 3% HYPERFORIN):
acts to enhance mood through its serotonin reuptake inhibition (SSRI), as well as, its norepinephrine reuptake inhibition. In this way, Hypericum enhances the mood regulatory effects of both serotonin and norepinephrine neurotransmittors.
N-ACETYL L-TYROSINE (NAT): is the bioactive form of L-Tyrosine. Tyrosine is a precursor for dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine production. Tyrosine is also integral in adrenal catecholamine production and thyroid hormone production. Many people with mood disturbances may have low catecholamine production.
DMAE (DIMETHYL AMINO ETHANOL): is a precursor to choline and may increase the production of
acetylcholine in the CNS. Increased acetylcholine production can improve cognitive functioning and enhance mood. Research has shown that those taking DMAE for 3 months produced significantly less theta and alpha1 brain waves. A decrease in the production of these waves has been associated with; enhanced vigilance, improved mood, increased physical activity, anda better sense of wellbeing overall.
5-HYDROXY L- TRYPTOPHAN (5HTP): is the immediate precursor to 5-hydroxy tryptamine (serotonin).
As such, 5HTP is a useful nutritional support product for serotonin production in those patients
with serotonin deficiency. Symptoms of serotonin deficiency may include: depression, anxiety,
irritability, fears, phobias, negative thoughts, sleep problems, cravings for simple sugars and
alcohol, binge eating, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
VITAMIN B12 (METHYLCOBALAMIN) & FOLINIC ACID (CALCIUM FOLINATE): are cofactors in the
production of S-adenosylmethioe (SAMe). SAMe is a well known methyl donor that is essential
for proper neurological function. Elevated homocysteine levels are often a sign of vitamin B12
and Folate deficiency. Studies are now showing that patients with major depression are more
likely to have elevated homocysteine, low folate, particularly red cell folate, and low vitamin
B12 in the blood. Supplementation with both folate and B12 have been shown to improve
treatment response. Deficiencies may lead to cognitive impairment and mood changes.PYRIDOXAL 5۪ PHOSPHATE (COENZYME VITAMIN B6): is involved in the metabolism of amino acids
and glycogen. It is a coenzyme in the synthesis of nucleic acids, hemoglobin, neurotransmitters
(serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and gama-aminobutyric acid), and many other
compounds. P 5۪-P is a coenzyme for over 100 enzymes, including the transaminases (some
liver specific) and decarboxylases. Along with folic acid and Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6 lowers
homocysteine. Clinical research has shown its effectiveness in treating depression and anxiety in women suffering from PMS.
L-THEANINE: is a non-protein amino acid found naturally in Camillia sinensis (Green tea).
L-Theanine has mood-modulating activity and modest antioxidant activity. Its effects on
mood modulation may be through direct effects on GABA receptors or through effects on
the metabolism and release of other neurotransmitters, such as dopamine. Another benefit
of L-Theanine is its ability to enhance alpha wave activity of the brain. Alpha waves have a
mood modulating benefit while maintaining alertness.
GABA (GAMMA AMINO BUTYRIC ACID): is an inhibitory amino acid that acts directly as a
neurotransmitter. GABA, like L-Theanine, has mood-modulating activity and anti-stress benefits.
LITHIUM: is present in the human diet in ultra-trace amounts and is found in some natural
mineral waters and colloidal minerals. Fish, processed meat, milk, milk products, eggs,
potatoes, and vegetables are rich sources of this mineral. It has been suggested that lithium,
at low dosage levels, has a generally beneficial effect on human behavior. High prescription doses are often prescribed for mood stabilizing effects.
A blend of nutrients and amino acids to nutritionally support an enhanced mood
Mood modulating benefits for those with low spirits or unstable altering moods
CONTRAINDICATIONS: none are known for dietary
levels of intake of lithium.
