Liposomal NeuroCalm™ is a unique blend of GABA and L-theanine to support mental calm and a healthy response to burnout.
The ingredients are formulated with liposomal technology. Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids—the primary building blocks of cell membranes.
Nutrients delivered in liposomal form is absorbed by the body easily and immediately.
GABA is the main inhibitory or calming neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Being an inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA slows down the activity of nerve cells and prevents them from over-firing. GABA is a critical calming agent for the body, helping to combat burnout and occasional anxious feelings.
Theanine is an amino acid that crosses the blood brain barrier and is known to promote calm and a healthy response to stress. L-theanine is a natural pairing with GABA, as it also lessens over-excitation of neurons in the brain, reduces sympathetic nervous system activity, and promotes mental relaxation without inducing drowsiness. While neither GABA nor L-theanine induce daytime sleepiness, taking them in the evening may help promote restful sleep as a result of calming the mind.
How to have it?
As a dietary supplement, take 2 mL (approx. 4 pumps) and hold in mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing.
The very small size of the liposome particles allows for some absorption to take place right away.
Why we love it!
Liposomal NeuroCalmTM features GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and L-theanine, both of which are well-regarded for promoting mental and emotional calm without impairing focus and attention.
Effective, efficient absorption in the body
Longer circulation in the body for effective nutrient delivery

Do you have high functioning anxiety?
How to tell and what you can do?
Anxiety might not be what you think it looks like.
The high functioning person is often an overachiever. They have many positive traits - they are active, organised, proactive and detail oriented.
While some are frozen by anxiety, a high functioning person with anxiety is propelled into doing and achieving more, but are sometimes late to recognise the struggles and anxiety involved to achieve that level of success.
They often silence their inner turmoil thinking that its's something that many people just have to go through and that they just need to manage it better somehow.
The Three Os:
Over-doing, Over-thinking and Over-performing.
Most times, you work so much to the point that it's wearing you down. There's little or no time for the other pleasures in life - and when you do carve out time for yourself, your mind continues to race. It's difficult to be present and you can't wait to get to the next thing on the agenda.
You tend to overthink and read too much into situations. And because you have a difficult time letting people down, you accept huge workloads without complaining.
In a culture where we are propelled to do more, achieve more and to keep on pushing to meet keep up with the pressures at work and at home, this could come as a detrimental effect on not only the individual, but the society at large as mental health concerns is on the rise globally.
You may not seek help because:
You are worried that your work might suffer if you are not constantly driven
You might think that everyone struggles the way you do and that it's normal
You silence your internal struggles and sometimes feel like you can't ask for help
Steps you can take to manage your anxiety
Listen carefully to your inner monologue. Pay attention to your thought patterns. Anxiety involves a lot of negative perceptions. (what if I miss this deadline, what if I mess this presentation up, will they think I'm incompetent if I say no?"
Re-access your sleep hygiene.
Reconnect with your body - anxiety is as much a physical manifestation as it is mental.
Anxiety feeds off anxiety - learn how to intervene with yourself.
Schedule for a consultation with us if you feel that there is more to your anxiety. Burning out and anxiety is often linked to an imbalance in the HPA-Axis and testing can be done to get the root of your issues.
While TNC can help ease anxiety from a nutritional approach, do consider working with a therapist/ counsellor to help manage your anxiety from a psychological approach.
