Natural Stress Relief
30 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number: 00987

It’s hard to find a natural antidote to today’s overstressed world. The encouraging news is that lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), a perennial herb in the mint family native to the Mediterranean region, has been clinically proven to help promote sleep and relaxation. What’s more, lemon balm produces these calming effects while also enhancing memory and attention!11-20

Cyracos® lemon balm extract is prepared from special lemon balm chosen for its high concentrations of hydroxycinnamic and rosmarinic acids. These active lemon balm constituents appear to enhance mood by modulating specific nicotinic and muscarinic receptors in the cerebral cortex of the brain.21-23

Aside from relieving everyday stress and sleep problems, this botanical extract may also offer smokers relief from the mental stress of quitting, aid in leveling mood swings, and help reduce the emotional hunger associated with dieting (or following a calorie restriction regimen for anti-aging purposes).

Relaxation-Promoting Effects of L-Theanine

The Japanese have long known that L-theanine, an amino acid derived from green tea, is a natural relaxant that diminishes stress,24-28 without drowsiness, impaired thought, or other side effects.

L-theanine produces calming effects in the brain in ways that have been compared to meditation, massage, and aromatherapy. L-theanine induces relaxation without causing drowsiness. In fact, studies show that L-theanine enhances the brain’s ability to concentrate, learn, and remember.29-36 L-theanine increases GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), an inhibitory neurotransmitter that not only induces relaxation but also produces a sense of well-being.37 L-theanine may normalize levels of dopamine, a critical brain hormone that is depleted by various stress factors.30,37,38

A Host of Health-Enhancing Benefits

Research shows that L-theanine has numerous health-enhancing effects, including promoting healthy cognitive function. In studies of neurons in cell culture, L-theanine reversed glutamate- or other neurotoxicant-induced neurotoxicity, a major cause of normal brain aging.24-38

Based on an enormous amount of published data showing the multiple beneficial effects of lemon balm extract and L-theanine, Life Extension has combined these potent but safe nutrients into a formula called Natural Stress Relief.

Note that the amount of L-theanine in this product is double that of most L-theanine standalone supplements. The reason for this potency increase is reports of greater benefit when at least 200 mg of L-theanine is taken.

Beware of Imitations: The L-theanine used in Natural Stress Relief is Suntheanine®, the only pure form of L-theanine protected by 40 U.S. and international patents and scientifically proven in clinical studies to be safe and efficacious. Independent laboratory analysis has verified that certain other products on the market claiming to contain “L-theanine” are only half L-theanine, the other half being a different form of theanine known as “D-theanine” which has not been scientifically evaluated in published studies.

    I purchased a similar formula offered by Suzanne Somers which was very expensive. It, however, really seemed to work for overall relaxation & wellbeing. I did research on the formula and it led me to Life Extension. It is still expensive but much less than the celebrity markup. I also know that Somers does lots of research on what she offers so felt comfortable with this formulation.
    I originally took this to help me sleep. I have huge sleep issues. I found melatonin & valerian didn't work well for me. The Melatonin gave me dream problems. This formula doesn't seem to have the issues associated with most sleep meds. It appears to just relax you enough to get a good night's sleep. It takes time to work so I also take glycine with it right before I go to sleep and the 2 work well together. The glycine works quickly and this formula works slower & gentler. I also feel more alert during the day. It seems to help - overall - with my stress issues right now. I have recommended it to my clients who have substance issues. It helps with their sleep & stress levels. People have been using lemon balm for hundreds of years - probably much longer - and I can see why. I haven't given up completely on modern medicine but I don't depend on it to help with my smaller daily issues that can lead to huge issues. Getting restorative sleep is fundamental to overall wellbeing & I believe this product helps with this.
    My 30 year old daughter also take this now and it has helped her stress levels. She has a very stressful job & this helps when she gets stressed.

    Didn't notice a difference at all

    I got this product as it was advertised to help with the symptoms of stress. I have noticed no change at all so will not be getting it again.

      Comments about Life Extension Natural Stress Relief, 30 vegetarian capsules:

      As someone who sometimes gets overwhelmed with the stress of life, I can tell you that this works. I would say that part of it is mental and maybe it is, who knows but I was a skeptic before taking this. It worked so well that I felt that I was obliged to write a review.

      Not everything is for everybody but this definitely worked for me.

              I take one tablet an hour before going to bed and I sleep incredibly well. This supplement helps me to have an extremely restful night's sleep, which in turn has helped spasms in my upper and lower back. I've taken many supplements for my muscle pains, and this has helped more than anything I've ever taken combined. I absolutely will be taking this from now on, can't imagine not having it available.

                      I have used Natural Stress Relief for several years on a daily basis to relieve upset, nervous feelings and it helps to calm me down. The lemon balm ingredient has been proven to be a plus to put with L Theanine as I have read that it induces calmness. I use this product at times once or twice a day. I have also skipped days with no side effects. I have stuck with the L theanine supplements as well as GABA and used both.

                        Being in a very stress job like most people I was looking for something natural that I could take at night to help with my sleeping. This product has helped me sleep more sound. I would tell people to at least try it and see if it works for them.
