How Does Calming Plus Work?
Certain dietary compounds have a calming effect on the nervous system:
L-Tryptophan An essential amino acid and natural relaxant, tryptophan is a necessary precursor of serotonin, melatonin, 5-HTP and niacin.
Taurine: The amino acid taurine is important for lowering the release of cortisol, increasing the production of GABA (gama-aminobutyric acid), and regulating chemical signals between nerve cells in the brain.
B-Vitamins: Pyridoxine (B6),Niacinimide (Vitamin B3), Folic Acid and Cobalamin (Vitamin B12) are essential for production of neurotransmitters, hormones, proteins and for regulating normal brain activity essential for handling stress. Folic acid is thought to be particularly important for mood stabilization and reducing anxiety and panic.
Hops: Hops (Humulus lupus) has been shown to work as a central nervous system relaxant, both on the nervous system and as a muscle relaxant.
Chamomile Clinical research has shown that chamomile contains a mild sedative and can help decrease anxiety .
Ginger Shown to settle motion sickness and nausea, ginger may also help the nausea your pet experiences when “fight or flight” kicks in.
Most pets begin to relax within 30-60 minutes of eating the tablets, but some may require more time. It’s best if you can give Calming Bliss before any signals, such as car keys or pet carrier, are recognized. Thunderstorm and fireworks anxieties often require seasonal use. It may be possible to modify your pet’s behavior by using this supplement along with training techniques. If so, your pet will become less fearful when the problem situation occurs.
Considerations for animals taking other medications:
