Tired But Wired

Why Can't I Relax?!

Pinballs on Cocaine

You know that being stressed isn’t your fault, but shouldn't you be able to calm yourself down? I mean, you know some Yoga moves. You have a meditation app. Breathing techniques aren’t that hard, so why can’t you just relax?

Well, because it’s not that simple.

Lots of things can stress us out. Our family. Our relationships. Our pets. Our jobs. Our to-do list. Neighbors. Bad drivers. That coworker who always mispronounces your name (it’s been five years!). And this isn’t even the big stuff, what about things like health scares? Legal worries? Pandemics or political division? It can create an overwhelming storm of stress that has us bouncing around from frazzled to fatigued like, well, a pinball on cocaine.

Biohazard Ahead!
All this stress can create a bit of a neurological, biochemical disaster. Grab your hazmat suit, and let’s take a closer look at the science.

As stress levels go up, our natural calming neurotransmitters (GABA, Serotonin) are drowned out by increasing levels of excitatory neurotransmitters called glutamate, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. When you add in elevated output of the hormone cortisol - that creates a brain that’s tired, but wired.

Calming Chemicals (and other neat tricks!)

The reality is, the things that stress you out aren’t all going to disappear, but there are things you can do that will help, and yes, breathing is one of those things (we know, we know, you’ve heard that before!). But, it is by no means the only thing that will help!

Our newest product, Chaos Calmer Cream, is a proprietary blend of GABA, Magnesium and L-theanine in a cream base that provides a unique combination of ingredients to calm the mind and body AND help the brain focus by reducing pressure of too many excitatory chemical messages.

How? Well, while magnesium and L-Theanine are minerals and amino acids (respectively) that will help to increase the production of GABA, GABA is the real superstar here. GABA slows down your brain by blocking specific signals in your central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord).

GABA is known for producing a calming effect. It’s thought to play a major role in controlling nerve cell hyperactivity associated with anxiety, stress and fear.

Combined, these three superstars will have you feeling less burnt out and more blissful in no time!Chaos Calmer for the win!
