Neuroscience TravaCor is known for stimulating the production of serotonin (a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep and behavior), and its calming effect. It is manufactured using highly potent raw ingredients processed under high quality standards to ensure clinical efficiency.
This product is recommended for people with anxiety, restlessness, depression and sleep problem as it can improve mood and sleep quality, and reduce anxiousness. Primarily, it provides a calming effect through supporting the inhibitory neurotransmitter system.
With its unique formulation of amino acids, vitamins and mineral co-factors, TravaCor supports serotonin and GABA, a natural relaxation agent, to enhance the regulation of excitatory systems. And, as it supports serotonin and potentiates GABA, TravaCor blocks glutamate, the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. This mechanism results in relaxation and a general feeling of calmness.
Neuroscience TravaCor ingredients include L-theanine, 5-HTP, taurine and nutrients (vitamin C, B6 and B12, folate, magnesium, zinc and selenium).
Studies prove that L-theanine relaxes the nervous system and reduces hyper-stimulation as it acts as a glutamine receptor antagonist. This is supported by the research done by NeuroScience Inc. which shows that L-theanine lowers norepinephrine, epinephrine, PEA activity and urinary excretion. Aside from its relaxant effect, L-theanine serves as an antioxidant and it helps prevent cognitive dysfunction.
5-Hydroxytryptophan serves as the direct building block for serotonin and increases serotonin levels. Short-term studies reveal that 5-HTP is as effective as standard anti-depressant drugs. It has beneficial effects on mood, sleep, appetite and anxiety. 5-HTP can also aid in weight loss and prevent migraine headaches.
The amino acid taurine provides a feeling of calmness by binding to GABA receptors thereby promoting GABA synthesis and enhancing its effect. Together with theanine and 5 HTP, taurine helps decrease high neurotransmitter excretion in a short period of time. It also plays a role in the reduction of glutamate levels.
Vitamin B6 is a vital co-factor for serotonin and GABA production.
Vitamin B12 is a co-factor for serotonin production and it supports neurological functions.
Vitamins C, B6, B12, and folate, magnesium, zinc, and selenium serve as co-factors, encourage serotonin synthesis and control glutamate receptors.
Possible side effects of TravaCor are mild, short-term nausea or stomach upset, and fatigue in some individuals.
Each bottle contains 120 capsules and the recommended dose is 1-3 capsules once or twice a day (or as directed). This should be taken on an empty stomach 30 minutes before and 2-3 hours after meals. It is also important to consult a health practitioner before taking this medicine especially pregnant and nursing mothers. Keep the bottle out of reach of children and away from direct sunlight.
