The natural ingredients in Panicyl™ work by bringing into balance certain brain chemicals called neurotransmitters that are associated with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. The specific neurotransmitters involved are serotonin (ser-oh-TOE-nin) and norepinephrine (nor-ep-ih-NEF-rin). Research suggests that abnormalities in neurotransmitter activity can affect mood and behavior. Panicyl’s™ natural ingredients help balance these two chemicals to allow the body to resist anxiety, panic attacks, and stress.
Do Natural Ingredients Really Work?
Herbs can be as powerful as mainstream medicine. In fact about 25% of all prescription drugs are derived from trees, shrubs or herbs. For example, aspirin comes from willow trees and the birth control pill originated from the Mexican yam.
How Does Each Natural Ingredient Work?
-Ashwaganda- (also spelled Ashwagandha) has been used in India for thousands of years in ayurvedic (ancient) medicine as an anti-anxiety remedy. University and medical researchers have been studying Ashwaganda since at least the early 1960s.
Chemical analysis shows that Ashwaganda contains compounds thought to have anti-stress
properties. Ashwaganda works by suppressing dopamine receptors in the brain. It helps the body adapt to stress by both calming and rebuilding the nervous system. Further, it helps stimulate respiratory function and smooth muscle relaxations. Ashwaganda also has immune supportive properties and helps support the thyroid gland.
Ashwaganda comes from Sanskrit meaning horse smell due to its strong aroma.
-Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)- GABA was discovered in 1950, is the most important and widespread inhibitory nerotransmitter in the brain. Excitation in the brain must be balanced with inhibition. Too much excitation can lead to anxiety, restlessness, irritability, insomnia, and even seizures. GABA is able to induce relaxation and suppress anxiety.
GABA is a naturally occurring chemical found in the brain that is responsible for an upbeat mood, positive self-image, goodwill and sound sleep. A neurotransmitter, or chemical that allows brain cells or neurons to interact, GABA apparently regulates the “anti-anxiety” part of the brain. People who suffer anxiety attacks may have a chemical imbalance that includes GABA depletion.
-L-Theanine- L-Theanine is an amino acid commonly found in tea. Because it can enter the brain, L-Theanine has psychoactive properties. L-Theanine has been shown to reduce mental and physical stress and may produce feelings of relaxation – without drowsiness.
L-Theanine is thought to produce these effects by stimulating the brain’s productionProduction. Read more ... » of alpha waves, which make you feel relaxed but alert and not drowsy. L-theanine also helps you stay relaxed by stimulating your body to produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA, and tryptophan.
L-Theanine reduces stress and anxiety without the tranquilizing effects found in many other calming supplements.
The Japanese use an extract form of L-Theanine to relax; they consume foods or chewing gums that have L-theanine added, which are marketed to calm jitters, or take it as a dietary supplement. The supplement has recently begun to appear in American stores.
-Korean Ginseng (Panax)- Herbal remedies known as “ginseng” are based on the roots of several distinct species of plants. Panax ginseng is one of the most commonly used and highly researched species of ginseng. This species, which is native to China, Korea, and Russia, has been an important herbal remedy in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, where it has been used primarily as a treatment for weakness and fatigue.
Ginseng products are popularly referred to as “tonics,” a term that has been replaced by “adaptogens” in much of the alternative medicine literature. The term “adaptogen” connotes an agent that purportedly “increases resistance to physical, chemical, and biological stress and builds up general vitality, including the physical and mental capacity for work.”
The main active ingredient in Korean Ginseng are Ginsenosides. These steroid-like phytochemicals have properties that give ginseng the ability to counter the effects of stress.
-L-Tyrosine- L-Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid [protein building block]. L-Tyrosine helps form three important neurotransmitters: dopamine, ephrine, and serotonin. These neurotransmitters are responsible for functions like memory, mood, appetite, and muscular coordination. Clinical studies have shown that L-Tyrosine supplements help with depression, anxiety, and heighten the mood in just a matter of a few weeks. It also helps fight fatigue and irritability.
Research shows L-Tyrosine is most effect when combined with other mood-improving nutrients.
-L-Tryptophan- L-Tryptophan is a naturally occurring amino-acid. It is a precursor for the mood-regulating serotonin the brain neurotransmitter linked with pleasure and fulfilment.
Serotonin is a key brain chemical that helps establish feelings of calm and well-being. Extensive research has linked serotonin imbalance with depression and anxiety disordersAnxiety Disorders.

-Rhodiola Rosea- Rhodiola Rosea is very effective for improving mood and alleviating depression symptoms. Russian research shows that it improves both physical and mental performance, reduces fatigue, and even prevents high altitude sickness.
Rhodiola rosea’s effects are attributed to its ability to optimize serotonin and dopamine levels.
-Vinpocetine- Vinpocetine is a nutritional supplement derived from the periwinkle plant. It has only recently become available in the U.S. through food, drug and mass market retailers as a nutritional supplement. The supplement is already very much in use in Europe, where physicians believe it is far more effective than other supplements — such as ginkgo biloba — used for memory and brain function. Vinpocetine actually contains many of the same cerebral-enhancing effects as ginkgo biloba, but has been shown to be more effective in much shorter time.
Vinpocetine has been extensively studied in Europe. These clinical studies have found it to provide several advantages for the human brain, including memory enhancement, increased cognitive performance, improved cerebral circulation and higher mental acuity and awareness.
How Do The Supporting Ingredients Work?
-Vitamin B6- Vitamin B6 helps the body to manufacture brain chemicals
(neurotransmitters), such as Serotonin, essential for the body to cope
with anxiety and panic. Vitamin B6 may also help boost the immune
system during times of anxiety.
-Vitamin B12- Vitamin B12 helps the body to cope with anxiety and panic
because it works in concert with other B vitamins. B12 supports the
nervous system and assists the body in converting food into energy.
-Folic Acid- Folic acid is an important member of the B Vitamin family
and is required along with the others when the body is dealing with
anxiety and panic. Research suggests that folic acid may help relieve
depression, which is often associated with anxiety and panic.
