Blend of Amino Acids and Nutrients
Support Relaxation and Sleep
Brain CALM, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is an effective blend of critical amino acids and nutrients that provide support for a calmer brain.
Brain Calm is an effective blend of critical amino acids and herbs that promote relaxation and sleep. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid that functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Most neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine and noradrenaline, promote a feeling of wakefulness and alertness, however GABA acts by blocking these –excitatory” neurotransmitters to promote relaxation in the brain. By promoting relaxation, GABA has been shown to help sleep irregularities such as the inability to fall asleep or waking during the night.
Additionally, Brain Calm contains Passion flower, which is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid, especially in times of restlessness or sleeplessness due to mental stress. Plant compounds of Passion flower exert effects in the brain by binding to GABA receptors, promoting a relaxation effect similar to GABA itself. By reducing feelings of anxiousness and stress, randomized control trials have found that Passion flower improves overall sleep quality.

This formula includes insoitol, GABA, glycine, and Passion flower.
Inositol is found in all animal tissues, with the highest concentration found in the brain and heart. It is a component of the outer lining of all cells in the body, and contributes to muscular and nerve function.
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter in the brain. GABA is synthesized in the brain from another amino acid, glutamate, and functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter – meaning that it blocks nerve impulses. In the body, GABA is concentrated in the hypothalamus region of the brain and is known to play a role in the overall functioning of the pituitary gland – which regulates growth hormone synthesis, sleep cycles, and body temperature.
Glycine, a non-essential amino acid, also plays an important role in the activity of certain neurotransmitters.
Passionflower is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid (in cases of restlessness or insomnia due to mental stress). Helps to temporarily promote relaxation.
