- Product Details
This formula is a unique combination of certified organic herbs, B complex vitamins and a patented amino acid which promote a healthy response to stress. This product is made with herbs that are organically cultivated in the USA to provide the highest quality herbs available.
Acute stress is a physiological response, also known as the "fight or flight" response, that allows us cope with extreme situations. Once necessary for survival the adrenaline, and other chemicals produced by the body during stressful situations, can become an evolutionary disadvantage in our modern, stressful environment. Frequent physical reactions to stress ultimately take a toll on the body, and will eventually serve as a catalyst to the deterioration of our health.
Adaptogens (Ashwagandha, Licorice and Holy Basil) help restore balance to this response by:
Increasing ability of the body to cope more EFFECTIVELY with stress.
Altering the release of stress hormones in the body, therefore modifying the body's reaction to stress.
Regulating the use of the stress hormone, cortisol, allowing the body to maintain a healthy response to stress.
The adaptogens used in this formula all share these properties, but each has unique properties that are especially useful in times of stress.
Ashwagandha is a traditional Ayurvedic (Indian) herb used for calming the mind and promoting regular sleep patterns.
A study published by the University of Texas showed that Ashwagandha root stimulates GABA-like activity. GABA (Gamma Amino-butyric acid) works by inhibiting the over-activity of nerve cells. This helps to induce sleep, uplift mood, and reduce anxiety. Ashwagandha use supports immune function and maintains healthy blood sugar levels (already within a normal range) which are body systems which may be compromised during stress.
Licorice supports a healthy stress response because it slows the conversion of cortisol to cortisone, which increases and prolongs the action of this steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. This helps the adrenal glands to function effectively, especially important when the body is experiencing chronic stress. Licorice also supports the immune function which is compromised during an acute stress response.
Holy Basil has been extensively used for its medicinal values by a number of cultures. In India, Holy Basil is referred to as Tulsi (meaning "incomparable one"). In addition to its stress reducing properties, higher doses of Holy Basil also maintains healthy blood sugar levels (that are already within a normal range) - a function which may be compromised during stressful episodes.
Native to both, North America and Europe, Skullcap was used historically as documented in the British Herbal Pharmacopeia (BHP) and in the Eclectic manuals. This herb has a solid reputation in Europe, where it is commonly used as a relaxing nervine (a nervine is an herb that has an effect on the central nervous system). Note: Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) should not be confused with Baikal skullcap (Scutellaria barbata), which has quite different biological activity.
Suntheanine®; L-Theanine is the amino acid that imparts a sweet taste in Green Tea. It is the compound that creates a calming effect and negates the caffeine effect that is rarely experienced when green tea is consumed. Suntheanine is a registered trademark of Taiyo International Inc. It is the only L-Theanine available that has proven clinical use and safety.

Cut's Munchie Cravings and Helps Regulate Mood
Stress Guard review posted by Super Supplement Customer on 5/1/12
I was looking for something to help me sleep, but didn't find much of a difference taking this - I did notice a big difference in food cravings and it allowed me to have more control in the evenings when i typically stalk things in the pantry.
