Stress amps up your cortisol levels to give you the umph to spring into action. But when your foot is stuck on the accelerator over days and weeks, you can’t help but get twitchy, frazzled, agitated, restless, snappish.
You’ve got to slow your roll in moments of high stress, not just to feel better, but to meet the demands. We’re not preaching “don’t worry, be happy”; your stressors are real and they need your attention. We’re here to help you calm your hyperactive mind and body so you have more capacity to do what needs doing.
Herbal Calm is an adaptogenic formula with just four ingredients that work together to balance your nervous system and promote vitality in times of stress. Ashwagandha, one of the most revered herbs in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, is the foundation.1
Most adaptogens are stimulating; ashwagandha is unusual in that it has a calming effect. It’s unclear exactly how ashwagandha works its magic, but clinical studies suggest that it helps maintain balanced cortisol levels and reduces stress levels while also strengthening immune function.2-4
We pair ashwagandha with another Ayurvedic superstar adaptogen: holy basil (a.k.a. tulsi). The uses for this “elixir of life” are so far reaching that most Indian families keep a plant in their home. Studies suggest that holy basil helps relieve mild to moderate stress responses.5,6 It also appears to promote clarity of thought, while supporting the maintenance of a normal metabolic state and liver function in healthy individuals.7,8
Herbal Calm also includes two relaxing European herbs traditionally used for nervous tension. Linden flower has long been used to take the edge off stress.9 And while cats go nuts on catnip, this herb has a calming effect on people.10 We added both to Herbal Calm for the way they relax the nervous system, making it easier to fall asleep when it’s time for bed. Its calming rather than sedating effect means there’s no grogginess; you can take Herbal Calm early in the day when stress is high and stay alert.
We created Herbal Calm to help ourselves and our friends navigate periods of high stress feeling more grounded and steady. This adaptogenic formula with just four herbal ingredients is focused on giving you what you need to keep calm and carry on, with nothing extra. We’re proud that it’s 100% vegan and non-GMO.
