Supplement for Anxiety: Calm Me Ingredients

I think we all accept that supplements can help keep us well. We need them for our bodies to function properly. Lack of vitamins has been linked over hundreds of years to various illnesses.

In 2020 Vitamin D3 has been backed by science to help support our immune systems [16].

So it follows that nutrients also have an impact on your brain and your mental health.

Calm Me is a pioneering and unique superblend of nutrients to support your mental health especially if you are struggling with anxiety, stress, burnout or poor sleep.

It is designed to naturally ease your symptoms of anxiety without having to take an antidepressant.

I thought it would be helpful if I wrote a little bit about each ingredient in the superblends and how it can help you. I’ve kept it focussed on mental and brain health benefits but all the ingredients have a cascade of wonderful effects on both your mind and body.

CALM ME: Supplement for Anxiety

If you are feeling wired, tired and burned out Calm Me is a combination of ingredients that have been put together by a psychologist specifically to support your brain health to help you feel clam, balanced and recharged.

The Ingredients

Better mental health starts with the right ingredients which is why the first one in all our unique superblends is:

MoodNutritionPlus®

Our trademarked, psychologist designed ingredient that you will only find in 360ME. And nowhere else.

MoodNutritionPlus® is a combination of 4 nootropics:

L-Carnitine

Improves mental and physical energy, improves brain power, lowers inflammation, boosts circulation, increases mental focus and increases fat burning [28]

L-Tyrosine

Turns into dopamine which helps you feel joyful, energised and motivated [31]. Dopamine also influences serotonin, and together, they play a central role in regulating your mood [19].

L-Tryptophan

Helps produce serotonin, which has several health benefits including helping to promote better sleep, providing relief from anxiety and depression, providing increased emotional well-being. It alleviates the symptoms of low serotonin which include negativity, depression, seasonal affective disorder, worry, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, and irritability [17].

L-Glutamine

Is a vital nutrient for the brain helping you to feel calm and relaxed as it reduces anxiety, depression and improves sleep.

Glutamine has important roles in immunity, surgery and burn recovery and also helps your intestines to rebuild and repair improving gut health and digestion [27].

In Calm Me we have put together these powerful nootropics together with:

L-Theanine

Helps reduce anxiety, lifts mood, improves sleep and lower cortisol, which helps the body deal with stress [29] It promotes relaxation without drowsiness and helps ease stress and unwind.

It’s also been shown to greatly improve sleep.

DL- Phenylalanine

Helps produce dopamine, helps with stress, memory and reduces brain fog, balances hormones, lifts depression, overall enhances mood, reduces pain and promotes greater feelings of happiness and fulfilment [30].

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate)

Helps the brain function and the body make the hormones serotonin (which regulates mood) and norepinephrine (which helps your body cope with stress) [32].

Vitamin B6 also helps the body make melatonin, which is important in helping regulate your internal clock and your sleep.

All our B vitamins are methylated.

What is methylation?

Methylated vitamins are the active versions of vitamins which your body can readily make use of, while un-methylated vitamins must go through a conversion process before your body can actually use them.

The problem is that many people are unable to make that conversion in their bodies because they have a genetic mutation that prevents it.

All humans have a gene called the MTHFR gene which is responsible for converting some vitamins into their usable state by the body.

60% of the U.S. and 40% of Australian and British people population have a mutation to this gene.

For all individuals who have the gene abnormality, the absorption of B-complex vitamins is either largely inefficient or lacking altogether.

So those vitamins remain mostly unabsorbed, and can simply build up to the point of toxicity.

Taking methylated B vitamins means that you can absorb them in a body ready form.

Sometimes this is the key that unlocks the optimal functioning of our brains and bodies.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is more effective than vitamin D2 at raising blood levels of Vitamin D.

Some types of vitamin D are not vegan-friendly. Vitamin D2 is always suitable for vegans, but vitamin D3 can be derived from an animal source (such as sheep’s wool) or lichen (a vegan-friendly source). 

Our vegan friendly D3 activates genes that regulate the immune system and release neurotransmitters (like dopamine and serotonin) that affect brain function and mental health.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a mood disorder featuring depressive symptoms, may be due to decreasing levels of vitamin D3, which can be helped by taking supplements.

Vitamin D deficiency impairs and prolongs recovery from depression [6].

Magnesium Blend (Bisglycinate, Citrate, Taurate)

Did you know that there are many types of Magnesium?

Not all magnesium supplements are created equal. Some forms are better for energy, while others are better for mood.

This blend is designed especially to support your brain, your mood, to help you relax, to ease anxiety and to help you sleep better.

Magnesium Citrate is an essential mineral known to play a crucial role in mood and sleep regulation. Studies show this form of magnesium is easier to absorb, promotes mental and muscle relaxation.

Supplements containing magnesium citrate are known for their calming properties. Magnesium Citrate reduces stress, improves focus and helps you feel calm and collected.

Magnesium Bisglycinate has 80% bioavailability, meaning the body can more readily absorb the nutrient which raises your levels quickly. It has a calming effect on your brain due to the presence of glycine.

It can help relieve anxiety and promote better sleep.

It reduces premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms.

Magnesium Taurate helps decrease the risk of depression, improves overall cognitive function, memory, migraines and PMS [33].

It has been shown to help induce calmness during times of high stress or anxiety due to the presence of taurine.

Microbacteria Blend (Probiotics)

Psychobiotics are a group of probiotics that improve not only our gut and digestive function but also our brains and moods with antidepressant and anti-stress effects [18].

Did you know that 90% of our serotonin and 50% of our dopamine is made in our gut and not the brain? And that our gut influences our mood, cognition, and mental health.

Stress can lead to changes in both the numbers and types of bacteria. This can have a knock-on effect for mood via the gut-brain communication system known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.

Probiotics are not just supplements. Probiotic bacteria actually live in the gut microbiome and have science-backed benefits for mental health.

Species of Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus are found in the colon where they exert a positive influence on whole body health including alleviating anxiety, memory, and cognitive symptoms and improves our stress resilience.

In this unique blend of probiotics we have included special ones that have an important role in alleviating negative emotions, improving cognitive function, and also relieving psychological stress [18].

It’s pretty amazing how nutrients can help isn’t it?

We all tend to eat the same sorts of foods each week which means that over time we start to miss some crucial nutrients.

It means that we end up with deficiencies and gaps without even realising it.

This has a huge impact on how our bodies and brains work. We adjust and just think that it is our normal.

It’s just what we have to put up with.

But this isn’t the case. We can make a change.

That’s where a high quality supplement can help fix the deficiencies and fill the gaps.

Our health and our life feels transformed.

We have abundant energy and joy comes back into our lives.

Calm Me contains the perfect mix to naturally ease your anxiety, contribute to a calmer mood, to help you relax and sleep better.

"I began to feel the benefit of these supplements immediately upon taking them, and my sleep and general sense of wellbeing began to improve straightaway after a sustained period of high stress and spiralling anxiety. Ten days later, I feel back to my usual self - I'm so glad that I found M&E - thank you so much :)" - Caroline. B. 

Take care,
