> CALMS AND RELAXES
RELAX DAY is our top anti-anxiety supplement. It helps you relax and put you in a better mood. You can take it throughout the day for daytime calm without feeling groggy or fatigued.
If you feel anxious first thing in the morning, take a capsule when you wake up. You can then take more during the day to help you stay calm. It is a good idea to have both the liquid and capsules on hand. The liquid will work right away; the capsules take about ten minutes before they dissolve in the stomach but they are easier to take with you to work.
“I have been a customer for many years. I started using your products to get off a medicine called Ambien. Then I saw your nutrition products for sleep and after the first try several years ago- I have never stopped using them. I have tried other nutrition products with melatonin in them but I find that your products are the best on the market. I LOVE the Relax Day and Relax Night products! I don’t know what you put in them but I can tell it is high quality and they really work!!! Thank you.— K. D
TART CHERRY EXTRACT can help give relief from mild anxiety. It is a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. New research shows that there is a close relationship between chronic internal inflammation and depression. This type of inflammation is often undetected because it falls below the radar of pain and visible swelling.
PASSIONFLOWER EXTRACT is recognized by science as effective for general anxiety, worry and tension. One of the actions of Passionflower is to increase GABA in nerve cells in the brain (see below for more about GABA).
THEANINE is an amino acid found primarily in green tea. It is the reason many feel so relaxed and peaceful after drinking the beverage. It increases the calming neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin. Many studies show that supplementing the diet with theanine helps relieve anxiety, reduce stress and boost mood. One serving of RELAX DAY gives you up to four times as much theanine as you would get in a cup of green tea.
GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is a neurotransmitter—an amino acid that the body uses to regulate the central nervous system. It is calming when the system is over stimulated, which explains the relaxing effects from GABA supplements. Some psychiatric drugs are designed to increase GABA activity in the brain. But instead of using such synthetic chemicals with their numerous side effects, you can boost GABA by supplementing the diet with GABA and with ingredients that stimulate GABA production such as Passionflower extract and Theanine.
QUALITY: We have made RELAX DAY as strong as we can, and not compromised the quality of the ingredients. We use a tart cherry extract that has 3X the activity of cherry powder. This is an improvement on the orginal RELAX DAY has helped thousands of people since we first introduced it in 2012. Some of its ingredients are relatively expensive. There are some copy-cat products on the market, but only by getting RELAX DAY from Genext Nutrition or from our Amazon shop can you be assured to get the original product with the right quality.
ANTI-ANXIETY DRUGS: Benzodiazepines and other drugs that are used for anxiety are usually highly addictive. They have many serious side effects, such as seizures, depression, sexual dysfunction, suicidal and homicidal thoughts. An anti-anxiety drug manipulates brain chemistry and does nothing to nourish the brain or the nervous system. The body eventually adapts to the drug, which then loses its full effect. An this point, the doctor either increases the drug dosage, or prescribes a different drug. The result is an increasing spiral of drugs and chemical dependency. A person who wants to taper off such drugs should do so very gradually and under a doctor’s supervision. RELAX DAY may provide a useful addition to such tapering by super-nourishing the body during the process, as directed by your doctor.
