More About Mental Fitness
Mental health trifecta
Maintenance of a healthy mood and getting a good night’s sleep can have a profound impact on your overall health and well-being. The benefits of sleep duration and quality are well-documented, as are the benefits of maintaining a healthy mood. Both help to support overall mental health, which is essential for a good quality of life.
Nutrients that support the health of the nervous system and brain are a great way to help maintain overall mental health, including a healthy mood and normal sleep patterns.
NOW® mental health products
At NOW we offer a great selection of supplements for the maintenance of mental health, including sleep supplements and mood supplements to support a normal mood and healthy sleep patterns.
- True Calm™ – True Calm™ is an effective combination supplement that incorporates the latest amino acid and neurotransmitter research into one easy-to-use formula. True Calm™ includes cerebral nutrients like GABA, an amino acid that is normally produced in the brain, where it functions as a calming neurotransmitter. It’s blended with vitamins, herbs and other amino acids to support relaxation and a balanced mood.
- DOPA Mucuna – Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that promotes enjoyment and interest in life.* With 15% L-DOPA (the immediate precursor of dopamine), NOW® DOPA Mucuna helps the body by giving it what it needs to make this important neurotransmitter. Mucuna pruriens, commonly known as velvet bean, has been used in the traditional Ayurvedic system in India for thousands of years.
- Mood Support – NOW® Mood Support is a nutritional supplement that has both nutrients and herbal extracts that aid in the support of a healthy nervous system and a positive, balanced mood state.
- DMAE – DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) is a natural amino alcohol found in minute quantities in the brain. It’s generally regarded as a precursor to choline, which is needed for the brain to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in nerve signal transmission and healthy brain function. Taken as a maintenance supplement, DMAE works well with other nutrients such as GABA and Tyrosine, or can be taken alone.
- Sleep – There are a fair amount of supplements for sleep on the market, but nothing like our Sleep formula. NOW® Sleep is a combination of ingredients that’s specially formulated to help you ease your mind and relax your body so you can drift naturally off into a restful sleep. Sleep uses Valerian and Hops, two herbs that have been traditionally used to promote a calm, relaxed state and support rejuvenating sleep. GABA is a neurotransmitter normally produced in the brain, where its function is to ease nervous tension. NOW® Sleep thus relaxes the nervous system to help you enjoy a tranquil night and wake up refreshed and energized in the morning.
