Lactium in is a bioactive decapeptide that is obtained by tryptic hydrolysis of milk protein – casein (Lactium is scientifically known as alpha Scasozepine). It works by binding to omega – 2 sub-unit of GABA-A receptors and hence reduces nervous transmission. It corrects HPA-axis dysfunction and thereby reduces release of Cortisol, a biomarker of stress. Lactium is clinically proven to reduce stress induced variation in blood pressure and heart rate as well as to reduce physical, emotional, social, digestive and cardiovascular symptoms of stress.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that reduces Glutamate over-activity and enhances release of GABA. It also stimulates brain alpha-waves and induces relaxation. L-Theanine is clinically proven to reduce stress and anxiety and improve cognitive function. The combination of Lactium and L-theanine increases coping ability to stressful situations and also promotes natural sleep, without causing drowsiness or sedation. It does not cause addiction or habituation. Both Lactium & L-theanine have been certified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by USFDA.
Lactium + L-theanine is recommended for managing symptoms of stress, anxiety and for improving sleep.
