Neuroscience has combined three powerful ingredients that are proven to work against the symptoms of irritability, stress, hyperactivity, insomnia and anxiousness. The result is Kavinace. A strong component to this product’s efficacy is Phenibut, or 4-amino-3-phenylbutyric acid, a GABA derivative. Studies have shown that Phenibut can reduce phenylethylamine activity. Phenylethylamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter, so inhibiting it can have calming effects. Those with aggressive tendencies can benefit from Kavinace’s calming abilities. Studies have also shown that Phenibut can suppress abnormal heart rhythms.
The Importance of GABA
Neuroscience’s Kavinace is designed to increase GABA activity in the brain. GABA (or gamma- aminobutyric acid) is an ‘inhibitory neurotransmitter,’ meaning that it inhibits excitatory transmitters in the brain. GABA can be found naturally, but those who are deficient may experience anxiety, insomnia or depression. Phenibut works by binding to GABA receptors and may elevate the brain’s levels of GABA
How Taurine Can Help
Each Kavinace supplement by Neuroscience contains taurine, an amino acid that works to regulate water and mineral levels in the blood. Many researchers also believe that taurine has antioxidant capabilities, meaning that it protects the brain from free-radical damage as well as damage from hypoxia and excess ammonia. Taurine is a natural substance that can be found in animal meat, fish and milk products. It is often added to energy drinks because it has been shown in some studies to improve athletic performance. Studies have also shown that taurine may be able to stimulate GABA activity by encouraging synthesis and protecting the brain from GABA breakdown. Neuroscience has included taurine and Phenibut in its Kavinace capsules because the two components work together to assist benzodiazepine binding to GABA receptors.
A single dose of just two capsules of Kavinace has been shown in studies to increase taurine levels in urine in just 30 minutes from ingestion. Even after 4 hours, taurine was still found in the urine of participants. Researchers tested the urine levels of taurine at various times after participants took the pills and found peak taurine levels after 120 minutes.
The Benefits of B6
In addition to taurine and Phenibut, Neuroscience added one more powerful component to its Kavinace to help increase GABA activity. Kavinace includes 5 milligrams of vitamin B6 (or pyrodixine), which is more than double the RDA of the vitamin. B6 is such a powerful vitamin that it has been used to treat or prevent over 100 health issues. Some of the issues it can treat are asthma, PMS and depression. It also assists in GABA synthesization.
Kavinace supports neurotransmitters in order to calm the mind and body. This is why it is often an effective treatment for anyone who suffers from high levels of stress or hyperactivity.
