used daily or as needed to support relaxation.
It contains a combination of factors not found in other calming
formulas such as Colostrum Calming Complex, L-Theanine and
Thiamine (Vitamin B1), which all address stress and relaxation.
About the formula:
• Colostrum Calming Complex is taken from colostrum
proteins, a range of bioactive proteins that have been found
to support cognitive function and stress reduction.
The colostrum calming complex is isolated from the
proteins and works synergistically with the L-Theanine
in the formula to promote relaxation and cognition.
• L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid
found in green tea and a derivative of glutamic acid, a
neurotransmitters in the brain. Glutamic acid helps the
body produce a variety of calming amino acids such as
Dopamine, GABA and Tryptophan, and helps bring certain
neurotransmitter into better balance. L-Theanine supports
calming and relaxation, and reduces irritability and low
mood states caused by unbalanced chemicals in the

done on L-Theanine showed that dogs were calm and
relaxed without adverse effects or drowsiness; dogs

• B vitamins help manage stress and help maintain normal
disposition. Vitamin B1 or Thiamine, has been shown
to affect the central nervous system beneficially by helping
calm and relax anxious animals. Because thiamine is
not stored in the body, increased activity, stress, illness,
or increased metabolism deplete its levels in the body.
Deficiencies cause mental confusion, muscular weakness,
muscle spasms, nervousness, and weight and appetite
loss during periods of stress.
• Lecithin is calming to the nervous system. It is a
phospholipid that is rich in B vitamins, Choline and Inositol
which help to support brain function and manage stress.
