Hello, I am Dr. Alex Kanevsky, a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and a doctor behind the brand.
I have a teenaged daughter, who is an overachiever and an athlete. During her junior year at high school, she was going through a lot of stress both emotional and physical. With minimum sleep due to enormous workload at school and SAT preparation, frequent sport competitions, and daily sport practices, she developed anxiety and depression.
Initial reaction was to consult with a therapist, or even seek psychiatric help. We had to act fast. We paused when the first anti-depressant medication was prescribed. Having created Anxiety Formula for pretty much anyone, I have never thought of my own daughter until the day, I was holding her Prozac prescription in my hands.
I have formulated 5-HTP and L-Theanine supplement with harmless and natural ingredients with no side effects. My 16-year-old-then started to take it together with 10mg of Lithium Orotate daily, and the results exceeded our expectations. She started to function much better. We didn’t see an overnight improvement, but the relief came relatively fast. She seemed to focus more on her work and less on potential failures, she seemed to sleep better and was not so jumpy or edgy.
Now I hear a lot that anti-depressants make you emotionally numb, won’t let you cry, make you way more mellow, than you would want to be. I am glad my daughter didn’t have to experience it. I began to recommend my 5-HTP Formula to parents like myself. Once teenagers started taking my product, in many cases they quit prescription medication.
Teenagers are extremely vulnerable and impressionable individuals. High expectations society imposes on them as well as peer pressure leads many to seek mental health help. While a medication is a quick fix, it may not be for everyone, or some prefer not to take it long-term.
If you want to take my daughter’s path, research the ingredients our 5-htp formula includes:
- 5-HTP is an amino acid naturally occurring in your body. It is a precursor to serotonin. Synthetic 5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of an African Plant Griffonia Simplicifolia and may increase serotonin levels in your brain, which eventually will improve your mood.
- L-Theanine is another naturally occurring amino acid, its synthetic version is derived from both black and green teas. It promotes focus, relaxation and improves sleep quality.
- Vitamins B6 and B12 are the first ones to be depleted during stressful times and must be replenished.
- Magnesium is a critical mineral and is responsible for over 300 biochemical functions in the body from energy production to sleep. In fact, magnesium deficiency is closely associate with metabolic syndrome, a condition involving use and function of insulin.
By combining these ingredients, I intended to approach anxiety and depression from multiple angles to help ease the symptoms, improve your emotional wellness, and replenish essential B6 and B12. Please visit our store to read more and buy.
