Ingredient Summaries

The ProVanax™ formula works so well and is popular because of the specific ingredients used in the correct combinations, dosages and extracts; resulting in maximum results & benefits. Click the ingredients below and a detailed description will appear under it.

Lemon balm is an herb in the mint family that enhances GABA neurotransmitter activity in the brain.

The compounds in lemon balm, including rosmarinic acid, have been found to help inhibit the enzyme that normally degrades GABA.14 This keeps GABA levels higher, to support a healthy stress response, anxiety relief, mood enhancement and improved sleep patterns.13*

NOTE: Make sure to always use the EXTRACT form of Lemon Balm, which contains the active compounds that produce the positive benefits in clinical studies.

DO not use or purchase any product that contains the "root powder", which is found in most products. It's very cheap because it's "dead" and ineffective.

The highest standardized extract is what's used in ProVanax, which is 10:1 [7% rosmarinic acid, 14% hydroxycinnamic acid]

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid precursor of serotonin with potential mood enhancing, anxiety relieving, sleep, and weight management (appetite suppression) benefits.*

When 5-HTP was combined with GABA (which is the combination found in ProVanax), it helps promote a sense of "deeper relaxation and decreased anxiousness" in 67% of users.18*

Another side-benefit of using 5-HTP is a reduction in cravings and appetite, which can lead to health weight management.15*

INTRO: Too high a dose will cause you to feel tired and "life-less". ProVanax contains the correct dose to attain the positive mood benefits, WITHOUT the negative "tired" feelings.

St. John's Wort is a medicinal herb that has been used for centuries to treat feelings of "sadness, hopelessness and gloominess"41-44*

INTRO: Make sure to always use the EXTRACT form of St John's Wort, which contains the active compounds that produce the positive benefits in scientific studies.

DO not use or purchase any product that contains the "root powder", which is found in most products. It's very cheap because it's "dead" and ineffective.

The highest standardized extract is what's used in ProVanax, which is [0.3% Hypericin & 2% Hyperforins]

At the correct dose and extract (found in ProVanax), Passion Flower will help give temporary anxiety relief and feelings of calmness and comfort.*

However, when taken at high dosages, it can give a "tranquilizing / sedative" effect, which you do NOT want.

INTRO: Make sure to always use the EXTRACT form of Passion Flower, which contains the active compounds that produce the positive benefits in scientific studies. DO not use or purchase any product that contains the "root powder", which is found in most products. It's very cheap because it's "dead" and ineffective.

The highest standardized extract is what's used in ProVanax, which is 10:1 [6% Flavonoids as Vitexin and Isovitexin]. This way, you use less and get more positive benefits.

Valerian is a perennial plant native to North America and Europe. The root is the portion of the plant used for medicinal effects.*

Historically, Valerian's primary use was to help promote relaxation and give relief of sleeplessness, anxiousness, mental stress and conditions associated with occasional pain (both physical & emotional pain).21-24*

Enhanced benefits are felt when Valerian is combined with Lemon Balm extract25 (which are both found in ProVanax).

INTRO: Make sure to always use the EXTRACT form of Valerian, which contains the active compounds that produce the positive benefits in clinical studies.

DO not use or purchase any product that contains the "root powder", which is found in most products. It's very cheap because it's "dead" and ineffective.

The highest standardized extract is what's used in ProVanax, which is 5:1 [1.2% extract/valerenic acid]

Inositol is an unofficial member of the B vitamin group that functions as a primary component of cell membranes.

Although inositol has not been shown to be essential in the human diet, supplementation has shown to exert some very beneficial effects in cases of sadness, hopelessness, worry & feelings of panic.*

L-theanine is an amino acid mostly found in tea leaves, used to help support positive mood, lower stress, and brain and heart health.26*

  1. Helps promote healthy serotonin & dopamine levels, which can help support youthful memory and learning.*
  2. Helps support healthy levels and effectiveness of GABA, the body's main inhibitory neurotransmitter.*
  3. Helps stimulate alpha brain wave activity, which can help support mental relaxation, concentration, and deep REM sleep.27-30*

Lithium is classified as an essential micro-nutrient, which means that all humans require it in small doses for good health.31 *

It's naturally present in various minerals, water, soil, fruits, vegetables, and other plants that are grown in lithium-rich soil. Sadly, it's now lacking in our nutrition due to how foods are grown these days.

Which is unfortunate because low doses of lithium seem to help make people more peaceful and friendly.*

What's important to note is that the supplement form of Lithium "Orotate" is very different than the prescription form of Lithium "carbonate". The Orotate version in small amounts has been shown to be safe and beneficial for mental and emotional health.*

GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, which means that it functions as the mind's "brakes".

It helps slow down and stops the firing of brain cells and promotes the mind to a state of relaxation and calmness.32*

Scientists believe that GABA might be the mind's natural calming signal.* It's thought to help people get good sleep, relax, and wind down.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that exist naturally in foods like yogurt and kimchi. They’re also available in pill or powder form.

Probiotics help support digestive health, and they’re often used to treat diarrhea or bloating. However, there are numerous health benefits with using Probiotics, in addition to gut health.

Recent research has shown a direct and indirect benefit in enhancing your brain AND emotional health as well.*

Numerous studies have revealed the huge potential of probiotics for promoting positive mood... And decrease feelings of anxiousness & sadness .33-35

NOTE: Not all probiotics work the same and they all have different benefits.

However, the three most powerful and studied Probiotic strains that help support healthy positive mood are:*

  1. Bifidobacterium Bifidum - helps combat occasional symptoms of anxiety, worry and stress.36,38*
  2. Lactobacillus Plantarum - helps promote healthy serotonin & dopamine levels, which can help support youthful memory and learning.38*
  3. Bifidobacterium Longum - helps reduce temporary feelings of sadness, worry & stomach/digestive discomfort.36,37*

Each ProVanax™ veggie capsule contains over 100+ BILLION of these 3 specific "mood promoting" probiotics (healthy bacteria).*

Vitamins B6, B9, B12 and the mineral - Magnesium, are all essential in the production of healthy brain neurotransmitters/chemicals.*

This becomes even more important during times of additional stress and as we age, especially if you're over the age of 35.

NOTE: B vitamins must be taken in the correct, absorbable forms:

  • B6, it's pyridoxine HCl.
  • B9 (Folate), it's L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate.
  • B12 it's methylcobalamin.
