Ingredients

The pieces that make a whole.

 Vitamins & Minerals

Vitamin C

Vitamin C cannot be produced by your body. You have to get it from food or a supplement. The foods with the highest concentrations are:

• Acerola cherries
• Broccoli
• Red bell peppers
• Oranges
• Strawberries

Vitamin C's main function is to support your immune system through its ability to scavenge free radicals and maintain normal cellular function. However, it is also used in many reactions in your body. Your body requires vitamin C to make glutathione, create the neurotransmitter norephinephrin from dopamine, and even support brain health.*

Vitamin B3 (niacinamide)

Niacinamid is the activated form of B3. This allows your body to absorb more of this essential vitamin than typical synthetic versions. Every tissue in your body convert niacin to NAD and NADP. NAD helps unlock energy from the food you eat, helps maintain cellular integrity, and supports your memory. NADP, on the other hand, is primarily responsible for helping quench free radicals.*

B6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate)

Vitamin B6 cannot be produced by your body. You must get it from sources like pork, fish, eggs, and dark, leafy greens. Your body uses this essential vitamin to produce neurotrasmitters, norephinephrine and serotonin. Serotonin, as mentioned earlier, is required to produce melatonin, the sleep hormone.It's necessary to build other neurotransmitters to help maintain a positive mood: dopamine and GABA. Since vitamin B6 is far more present in the brain than blood -- to the tune of a 100:1 ratio.*

B9 (L-Methyl Folate)

While folic acid is typically recommended, it is a synthetic form of B9 that is not well-absorbed nor used by your body.L-Methyl Folate is the active, natural form of this important vitamin. Along with vitamin B12, B9 ignites your body's methylation cycle. It is involved in nearly every single one of your body's natural processes.*

B12 (Methyl-Cobalamin)

The methyl form of B12 works together with B9 on your methylation cycle.B12, by itself, can support your mood. Though science is currently unaware of how is able to maintain a positive mood, B12 does help synthesize serotonin.It's also integral in helping maintain a healthy brain.Perhaps its most famous benefit is how it energizes the body. However, it is not similar to caffeine. Rather, B12 helps metabolize your food to provide your cells with energy. There are no vegan or vegetarian food sources of vitamin B12. It is only present in animal-based foods such as beef, liver, dairy products, eggs, and fish.*

Magnesium Glycinate

This particular form of magnesium is bound with glycine to not only improve absorption, but to provide an additional boost of glycine. Though magnesium is present in many vegetables including dark, leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and legumes, approximately 50% of people in the United States are deficient. This is particularly problematic because magnesium is responsible for over 300 reactions in your body, including relaxing your mind and muscles to support sleep and a positive mood.*

Magnesium is yet another ingredient that's needed to make your body's master antioxidant, glutathione.In the presence of B6, magnesium has been known to reduce daily stress.*

 Amino Acids

L-Glycine

Glycine assists with two major roles in your body -- sleep and your body's ability to fight free radicals. Glycine has been known to not only help you fall asleep faster, it can also decrease daytime sleepiness and even support your memory. Glycine is one of three amino acids required to build glutathione, your body's master antioxidant. Glutathione helps fight free radicals, helping to maintain normal cellular function due to daily stressors and pollution.*

DLPA (DL-Phenylalanine)

DLPA is a combination of both forms of phenylalanine: D-Phenylalanine and L-Phenyalanine. DLPA is an essential amino acid, a protein building block you must get from your diet.*

Plentiful in nearly every source of protein, DLPA is especially beneficial in supporting a natural feeling of well-being.
DLPA accomplishes this by building key neurotransmitters including:

   • Serotonin*
   • Dopamine*
   • Epinephrine*

Plus, in the presence of large amounts of vitamin B6 and vitamin C, DLPA readily converts to L-Tyrosine.*

L-Tyrosine

Your brain requires key essential ingredients to produce Dopamine, a neurotransmitter involved with Pleasure, Motivation, Focus and Memory.L-Tyrosine is an amino acid which acts as a precursor to dopamine and can be found in many high-protein food products such as:

   • Turkey
   • Fish
   • Nuts & seeds
   • Lima beans
   • Avocados
   • Bananas

Cofactors such as Vitamin B9 (folate) and Vitamin C help facilitate the conversion of Tyrosine to Dopamine. Furthermore, it is estimated that about 50% of all dopamine is produced in Your gut.*

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)

5-HTP, or 5-Hydroxytryptophan is a precursor to Serotonin and Dopamine. Normally, when you consume animal sources of protein, you get the amino acid, tryptophan. Your body then converts tryptophan to 5-HTP. By taking 5-HTP directly, you're able to utilize more of this key nutrient to support easy sleep*

Since you bathe yourself in artificial light all day and well into the night, you don't produce melatonin the way you were meant to. And that means you might be having problems shutting off your mind and nodding off.*

When you get a little 5-HTP and serotonin, as a result, you can produce this sleep hormone. In other words, 5-HTP is a fresh breath of spring rain and 100 mg is enough to set your mind at ease and get some rest.*

Active Botanicals

Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum marianum)

It has been used by humans for over 2000 years and is still one of the most popular herbs used today. It contains a powerful group of bio-active constituents called Silymarin. Silymarin is currently thought to help with boosting phase II liver detoxification enzymes. Phase II detoxification is extremely important for removing toxic substances and cleansing your entire body. Silymarin may also make your liver cells cleaner and stronger by improving the function of their outer membrane. Interestingly, silymarin may also accelerate liver cell regeneration. Human studies have shown evidence of Milk thistle's capacity to reduce liver inflammation.*

Think of all of the toxins that you are exposed to each and every day. Your liver is likely working harder than it would want. Milk thistle is like sending a detox maid service to come in and help clean up so that your liver can keep you fresh and functioning optimally.*

Black Cumin Seeds (Nigella sativa)

Black cumin extract, or Nigella sativa, has been used for millenia for its powerful benefits. In fact, some archaelogical records indicate it's been cultivated since 3,000 BC. The secret to its popularity since ancient times and now is its powerful antioxidant, Thymoquinone. Thymoquinone can support your immune system as well as memory and focus.*

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

Lemon balm is an herb that comes from the mint family. It is not a derivitive of the citrus ruit.Lemon balm is a calming herb often linked to Mood, Concentration and Memory.*

Chaga Mushroom

Chaga mushrooms are large mushrooms with a hard exterior typically found on birch trees. Though they have been sighted on other trees, they get far more nutrients from birch. When brewed in tea or taken as a supplement, the antioxidants, minerals and vitamins are unlocked from the mushroom's tough cellular walls.In this manner, Chaga is able to support a normal inflammation response. Now, wild-harvested Chaga mushrooms have no guarantee of nutrients or efficacy. Lab-grown Chaga mushrooms have a consistent nutrient profile to support your immune system.*

Sunflower Seed Lecithin

Sunflower seed lecithin powder is 100% non-GMO. It helps Beyond Recovery mix easily into water or your favorite beverage.*
