Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic plant with multifaceted bioactivity, which is likely why it’s been an important part of traditional medicines for at least 6 millennia. Historically, ashwagandha was used as an immunity and vitality tonic, as it seems to combat the mental effects of environmental stress as well as the physiological ones.

This stalwart of Ayurvedic medicine effectively supports stress response by its moderating effect on the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, a system in your body that regulates stress response.¹ Ashwagandha also appears to help control mediators of stress, including heat shock proteins (Hsp70), cortisol, and stress-activated c-Jun N-terminal protein kinase (JNK-1) ²

Affron® is a pure extract of saffron, an ancient nootropic herb with powerful health benefits. Most of saffron’s bioactive properties come from key compounds: crocins and safranal. These compounds are known to support learning, memory, concentration, and stress response. 

Clinical research specifically on Affron® has demonstrated that it’s just as effective as eating a handful of this aromatic herb – but way less expensive. Regular use of this premium saffron extract promotes increased mood and managed stress without side effects, offering a natural alternative to standard treatments.³

L-theanine is an amino acid that can be found in tea leaves. When this nootropic was first isolated, it became apparent that it was the compound responsible for many of green tea’s health benefits. L-theanine acts on the serotonergic and dopaminergic systems, which are two of the main players in mood and alertness. At the same time, because it doesn’t act on the adrenals, these effects are not accompanied by spikes in heart rate or blood pressure.

Likely one of the reasons a cup of green tea helps you relax is that L-theanine does more than support stress response. This amino acid significantly increases activity in the alpha frequency band (alpha brainwaves), which are responsible for feelings of relaxation without drowsiness.⁴

Holy Basil

Also known as the tulsi adaptogen, holy basil is such an important tool in Ayurveda that it’s regarded as sacred. Over several thousand years, holy basil has been used as a treatment for fatigue, an immune system booster in times of illness, a mood-booster, and for an energy kick.

Driven by the phytochemicals in linalool, which is a terpene also found in the cannabis plant ⁵, holy basil has mood-boosting, stress reducing properties that act in concert with its adaptogenic abilities. Clinical studies have shown that holy basil has a positive effect on mood, sleep and stress levels by supporting cortisol levels and buffering your stress response.⁶

GABA is a nootropic, neurotransmitter and amino acid all at once. This unique and mysterious compound acts to promote a calm focus through regulating the traffic of our neurotransmitters. GABA is well-known in the medical field and is used in modern psychiatry to treat several mood, affect and psychotic disorders.

GABA is the body's main inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means it prevents overexcited neurotransmitters from communicating with the central nervous system, literally blocking stress. GABA works by reducing the ‘noise’ of overthinking and allowing the brain (and the mind) to relax.⁷

Also known as Siberian ginseng, eleuthero’s bioactive properties are similar to panax ginsengs. Eleuthero has shown an ability to optimize immune system function and fight the hormonal changes that chronic stress causes. Eleuthero is able to fight both the psychological and physiological effects of stress.

When a person faces a stressful environment, this nootropic ginseng cousin can improve their response by regulating the function of the HPA axis.⁸ ⁹
