Stress Tame is a complex of herbs and amino acids.
GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. It works by adjusting neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. Low levels of GABA in the brain causes feelings of anxiety, insecurity, unexplained panic and depression. Even though it is used an ingredient in dietary supplements and is claimed to have calming effects, there is no scientific proof to support these claims.
Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnate) is one of the key herbal ingredients in the product. It is a plant whose leaves and roots have been first used by the Native Americans to treat insomnia and hysteria. Passion Flower is known for its analgesic and anti-depressant properties. Some of its most common side effects are drowsiness, dizziness and coordination problems, although rare.
Stress Tame has been receiving good reviews from consumers, despite the fact that the manufacturer cannot prove the formula’s effectiveness with conclusive test results or clinical proof.
The recommended dose is 2 capsules taken 30 minutes before bedtime or dissolved into a cup of boiling hot water as tea.
