Calm-PRTTM is a product designed to balance excessive excitatory neurotransmitter levels and to reduce the overstimulation by epinephrine and norepinephrine and is an effective adjunct when inhibitory neurotransmitter support on its own fails to produce the desired outcome. Calm-PRT is a patent-pending formula that reduces high excitatory neurotransmitter levels and prevents overstimulation.
Within the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis stressors excite the hypothalamus to produce corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH). In turn, CRH release causes the pituitary to produce adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). Consequently, ACTH causes the adrenal cortex to secrete the glucocorticoids cortisol and DHEA. ACTH can also stimulate the adrenal medulla to secrete epinephrine and norepinephrine. These neurotransmitters are important regulators of the body's ?fight-or-flight? response. Cortisol, a hormone also involved in the "fight or flight" stress response, is involved in terminating the HPA-signaled increase in epinephrine and norepinephrine production. As many stressed individuals have inadequate adrenal cortisol production, the body?s adaptive homeostat, the HPA axis, is not functioning optimally and epinephrine and norepinephrine secretion increases.
As a result of faulty HPA signaling, the excretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine can exceed normal levels and may remain elevated long after the stress situation has ended. The Calm-PRT formulation helps to restore proper HPA signaling for steady neurotransmitter levels throughout the day and can be used as adjunct therapy to any NeuroScience Inc. program where additional inhibitory support is required.
Calm-PRT can also be used to address the symptoms of overstimulation that can occur as side-effects of prescription or non-prescription therapies.
Calm-PRT contains the adaptogen Rhodiola rosea, which at low doses has been widely studied due to its ability to affect the activity of dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine during stress. The higher doses of Rhodiola Rosea found in Calm-PRT in contrast can reduce overstimulation. This effect is enhanced by the actions of phosphotidylserine.
Phosphotidylserine is the major phospholipid in the brain and is involved with many crucial aspects of cellular membrane function including: cell-to-cell recognition and communication, reception of molecular messages from outside the cell, and the cellular exchange of nutrients. Phosphotidylserine has also been used to reduce cortisol levels in patients with high cortisol
Glycine is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain-stem and spinal cord and is included to help control overstimulation. Taurine is included in Calm-PRT for it's ability to enhance GABA function.
