What’s in Animal Essentials Tranquility Blend?
Valerian root (Valeriana off)
Valerian root contains several compounds that may promote sleep and help reduce anxiety, including valerenic acid, isovaleric acid, and as a broad variety of antioxidants, including hesperidin and linarin, both of which have calmative properties. Studies have concluded that valerian interacts with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in your brain and nervous system, and that low levels of GABA may contribute to acute or chronic stress that may manifest in the form of anxiety or low-quality sleep.
Skullcap (Scutellaria laterifolia)
This species of Skullcap is very safe and does not carry any of the potential side effects presented by other species of the herb. Like valerian, skullcap has been shown to inhibit breakdown of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Serves especially well toward promoting relaxation in animals with jittery, twitchy nervous tendencies.
Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)
A beautiful flower with an almost unworldly appearance, passion flower works especially well at promoting tranquility in jealous animals, or those that experience separation anxiety when their human is away. Like valerian, passion flower helps calm a nervous stomach, a problem which often leads to nausea during times of acute anxiety.
Oat Flowering Tops (Avena sativa)
The nootropic components of this herb help support healthy brain and mental functions, and may protect against neurodegeneration. Oat helps maintain healthy nitric oxide and PDE4 levels in the body, which are critical in normal delivery of vital nutrients and oxygen to the brain. It is often used to maintain strong nervous system functions in aging animals. Sourced from certified organic farms in the USA.
