Botanicals Grounded in Scientific Research
Throughout history, people have turned to the bounty of medicinal plants to improve calmness and alleviate anxiety. Notably, botanicals such as chamomile, melissa, lavender, skullcap, valerian, kava kava, ashwagandha, passionflower, and gotu kola have been the subjects of comprehensive research, unveiling the intricate mechanisms through which they soothe anxiety and modulate the stress response. These mechanisms often involve enhancing our calming brain signal, GABA.
For several of these botanicals, including chamomile, melissa, lavender, valerian, kava kava, ashwagandha, passionflower, and gotu kola, controlled clinical trials have further substantiated their clinical safety and efficacy. These clinical trials consistently demonstrate that, when administered at specific dosages, these plants effectively alleviate tension, anxiety, and long-term stress when compared to placebos—and in some cases, even rival or surpass conventional pharmaceutical interventions and in addition often few if any side effects.
