How Does CalmNeeds® Work?
Nerve cells, or neurons, do not touch each other, but are separated by a gap called the synapse. Chemicals called neurotransmitters travel from one neuron to the next to bridge this gap. Some neurotransmitters are excitatory, which result in increased neuronal function, while other neurons are inhibitory, which result in decreased neuronal function. While the function of the nervous system, including the brain, is extremely complicated, one important aspect is the balance between excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. When this balance is off, and a hyper-excitable state is present, providing substances that support inhibitory neurotransmission can often help re-establish the balance. CalmNeeds® contains five active ingredients designed to do just that. These ingredients are often taken together, and likely have a synergistic calming effect.
Who should consider taking CalmNeeds®?
Anyone in a hyper-excitable state can consider taking CalmNeeds®. This includes people with poor attention, hyperactivity, anxiety, insomnia, and/or migraine. Furthermore, anyone under stressful conditions might consider taking CalmNeeds®.

All of the ingredients are natural, and adverse (side) effects, when they do occur, are mild and reversible upon stopping/lowering the dose. Since CalmNeeds® can make some people sleepy, you shouldn’t drive or operate machinery after taking this product until you know how it affects you. The full dose of CalmNeeds® (2 capsules at one time) may cause side effects in some sensitive people, which is one reason for the recommendation to start at one capsule and increase as needed and tolerated. Potential side effects include heartburn, nausea, gas, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle weakness, and vivid dreams or nightmares. CalmNeeds® might lower blood pressure, and thus is a potential concern in those with low blood pressure/hypotension. Because of the highly unlikely, but theoretical risk, of serotonin syndrome, consult with your physician before taking CalmNeeds® if you are taking an antidepressant of the SSRI, SNRI, or (especially) MAOI classes.
