Redefine Relax me shot delivers 4 essential nutrients directly into your muscles for maximum absorption to calm the body and eliminate moodiness, irritability and other signs of stress, so you feel more relaxed.
Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain. GABA supplements can help boost the brain's GABA levels and treat anxiety, stress, depression, and sleep problems. In fact, some supplement manufacturers call GABA a "natural form of Valium"—presumably meaning that it reduces stress and improves relaxation and sleep.
Magnesium is an essential mineral important for strong bones, heart health and energy production. Without enough magnesium people develop muscle cramps, mental disorders, fatigue, irregular heartbeat and nausea. True magnesium deficiency is rare. But even if you’re not actually deficient in magnesium, you can still benefit from magnesium infusions.
How magnesium helps the body
Getting plenty of magnesium helps prevent many potential health problems including diabetes.
Other benefits include:
- Stronger bones and a lower risk of osteoporosis
- Proper absorption of calcium
- Improved insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism
- Reduced risk of arrhythmia, hypertension & atherosclerosis
- Headache relief and prevention
- Decrease neuropathic pain
- Relief from PMS symptoms
- Reduced anxiety levels
Taurine is an amino acid found in the body, many foods, and of course energy drinks. Taurine benefits include improved athletic performance & reduce anxiety.
People lacking certain nutrients and/or enzymes may not be able to make their own taurine and need a supplement to boost levels. Supplementing with taurine is also used to treat a range of health conditions including cardiovascular disease, migraines, insomnia, macular degeneration and many others.
Taurine gets its name from taurus (Latin) meaning bull, because a long time ago it was extracted from bulls (it’s also found in meat, fish, and dairy). Now taurine is typically made in labs and is fine for vegetarians/vegans.
Taurine is a safe organic molecule with many health benefits, and an ingredient in many of our IV treatments and Boost Shots.
Taurine health benefits
Taurine has been found in several different organs and tissues in the body, and it has a direct effect on many important functions including:
- Preventing damage to cells in the retinas and inner ear
- Strengthening and protecting heart muscle cells
- Maintaining healthy electrolyte balance at the cellular level
- Central nervous system support by acting as a neuromodulator and neuroprotectant1
- Slowing the release of adrenaline to reduce post-stress anxiety
- Enhancing mental performance
- Enhancing exercise performance & recovery
- Antioxidant properties
Taurine for athletes
There have been many studies on taurine’s effects on athletic performance. Some of the most exciting findings include:
- Taurine may increase the amount of fat burned during exercise
- Taurine reduces fatigue and makes muscles work harder
- Taurine prevents muscle cell damage by protecting against oxidative stress
Taurine also helps clear lactic acid when exercising, which helps muscles endure longer and feel less sore.
Taurine for anxiety
Because taurine helps with production and regulation of GABA, it plays an important part in calming anxiety and stabilizing mood.2 Low GABA levels have been associated with chronic anxiety, mood disorders, and epilepsy.
Taurine as an antioxidant
Taurine works differently than other antioxidants, making it a valuable addition to IV therapies that help you detoxify. Rather than scavenging and cleaning up free radicals (like Vitamin C), taurine helps prevent or limit oxidative stress in the first place. It also helps protect antioxidant enzymes.
L-theanine is an amino acid found most commonly in tea leaves and in small amounts in Bay Bolete mushrooms. It can be found in both green and black tea. ... Research indicates that L-theanine promotes relaxation without drowsiness. Many people take L-theanine to help ease stress and unwind. L-theanine may help people fall asleep more quickly and easily at bedtime, thanks to the relaxation boost it delivers. Research also shows L-theanine can improve the quality of sleep—not by acting as a sedative, but by lowering anxiety and promoting relaxation
