How Does RediCalm Work?

RediCalm improves levels of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) and serotonin in your brain. All ingredients in RediCalm have similar effects, which makes it perfect for exerting a synergetic effect on the brain and protecting it from glucocorticoid, a stress hormone.

In concise, it lowers the glucocorticoid level in the brain and increases the GABA and serotonin levels, which helps you to stay calm. In fact, it helps you to break the anxiety cycle by improving the biological state of your brain. When a biological state of your brain improves, it reduces a bad mood and makes you feel good. In this way, negative thoughts cycle breaks and stops you from thinking the same.

RediCalm Benefits & Uses

RediCalm helps in the management of anxiety and mood disorders. Let’s discuss it in details based on scientific evidence.

Anxiety and Stress Relief

L-Theanine in RediCalm lowers stress and induces relaxation. It does not cause drowsiness, as the study confirms. Another study indicates it reduces stress and anxiety even in people facing stressful events. (1, 2)

Low serotonin is directly linked with anxiety and racing anxious thoughts. 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) in RediCalm converts into serotonin in the brain, which improves mood and releases stress and anxiety. It also helps in the management of depression. (3, 4, 5)

Ashwagandha Powder is also helpful in stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. It might help by blocking the stress pathways in the brain. (6, 7, 8, 9)

Lemon Balm Powder also reduces negative mood, nervousness and hyperexcitability. It improves the feeling of calmness and relaxation. (10, 11)

Passionflower Powder has calming and soothing effects on the mind. It also improves sleep quality and reduces sleep irregularities. (12)

Based on RediCalm composition and the above studies, we can conclude that it is an effective natural remedy for anxiety and stress disorders.

Increases Focus

The composition of RediCalm may also help to improve focus. However, a study found that L-theanine can help to attain better focus, but when it is combined with caffeine. Another study has found that the effects of this combination last around 30 minutes. (13, 14)

In RediCalm, L-theanine is not combined with caffeine. So, there is an advantage. It is combined with Ashwagandha, which has long-lasting results in maintaining focus and motivated. Ashwagandha has similar effects like caffeine, but its effects are long-lasting. It also provides more clarity to the mind. (15)

5-HTP also modulates attention, an animal study suggests. (16)

In a study, Lemon Balm in combination with valerian root is found helpful to improve attention and concentration. This combination improves tolerability and reduces restlessness and sleeplessness. (17)

In RediCalm, Lemon Balm is in combination with other herbs, which also improves attention and concentration.

Improves Sleep Quality

RediCalm has a good composition that also helps to improve sleep quality. L-theanine reduces resting heart rate and promotes relaxation. Another study confirms that it also helps to improve sleep in patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (18, 19)

Ashwagandha helps to prepare the body for sleep by reducing stress and anxiety. It results in the quality of sound sleep. (20)

5-HTP, lemon balm and passionflower also have sleep-promoting action. (21, 22, 23)

In RediCalm, all these ingredients provide sleep-promoting effects, which help to get better sleep.

Lowers Stress-Related Blood Pressure

Some people face an abnormal rise in blood pressure during stressful situations. L-theanine helps lowering stress and to reduce anxious thoughts by improving levels of serotonin in the brain. The reduced stress can help to lower blood pressure. In a study, it is found that L-theanine helps to control blood pressure during a stressful situation. (24, 25)

In the similar way, other ingredients can also help to prevent rise in blood pressure during stressful situation.

In our review and evidence analysis, we found it effective in the management of anxiety, stress, passive depression and stress-related sleeplessness.
