What is Anandanol and what does it do?
To explain what Anandanol does, we will first need to look at how the Endocannabinoid System works and how it can affect anxiety, sleep, and sensory overload.
Electrical impulses reach the end of the pre-synaptic nerve and release neurotransmitters that travel across the synapse and bind to post-synaptic receptors.
Activation of these receptors causes the release of Endocannabinoids which travel back across the synapse to the pre-synaptic nerve.
Once across the synaptic cleft, the Endocannabinoids bind with CB1 receptors to regulate the release of further neurotransmitters whether inhibitory (GABA) or excitatory (glutamate).
If the balance between inhibition and excitation is disturbed in favor of the excitatory pathways, the intensity of excitatory transmission may lead to adverse behavioral and neurological consequences.
Lack of focus, self-control, aggression, disrupted sleep, and sensory overload can all be traced to this imbalance.
Anandanol helps support a natural response to this imbalance and to these issues through a carefully blended herbal/vitamin/mineral composition that includes:
- Magnesium Glycinate to quickly restore calm and to prevent inhibited nerve cell communication, which can lead to cell excitability.
- CoQ10 to support cellular energy production, immune system support, and for its antioxidant properties.
- B6 in the active P5P form. This offers the full benefit of the active form of B6 immediately upon absorption without the need for conversion. B6 supports over 60 processes in the body as well as the production of important chemicals in the brain.
Our Passiflora Blend includes three types of passiflora (Incarnata (extract), Edulis (fruit juice powder), and Coerulea (extract)).
The Passiflora blend included in Anandanol has an endocannabinoid antagonist-agonist effect that excites and inhibits the endocannabinoid system to override the imbalance. This restores the balance between inhibitory GABAergic pathways and excitatory glutamatergic pathways.
The materials contained in Anandanol, blended according to strict specifications, work together to support natural calm and focus, sleep patterns, sensory response, and relief from anxiety for people of all ages on and off the Spectrum.
In fact, many people report great results with sleep, while others report relief from mood swings and symptoms related to PMS and menopause.
