HELPING TEENS RELAX AND STAY CALM


Why We Created This – Understanding the Problem

Stress is part of life for everyone. From children to adolescents to adults, we all deal with some amount of stress every day of our lives. It’s normal.  

Many adolescents worry from time to time about things like passing an exam, family problems, being selected for sport team, their weight or appearance and a multitude of daily occurrences that don’t always pan out as planned. For example, teenagers might worry about starting secondary school, looking a particular way, fitting in with friends, sitting exams, performing in plays at school or going to school formals.

Stress is a normal emotional response to the challenges teens face on a daily basis and is normally a short-term experience based on a specific event or trigger. 

Stress can be positive or negative. When stress kicks in and helps you pull off that deadline you thought was a lost cause, it’s positive. When stress results in insomnia, poor concentration, and impaired ability to do the things you normally do, it’s negative. Stress is a response to a threat in any given situation.

Stress levels, left unchecked can lead to further issues. Emotional and physical disorders linked to stress, include depression, anxiety, heart attacks, strokes, gastrointestinal distress, obesity, and hypertension, to name a few. High levels of stress can wreak havoc on the mind and the body. While stress can manifest in many ways, it helps to know a few common symptoms:

  •   Frequent headaches
  •   Sleep disturbance
  •   Back and/or neck pain
  •   Feeling light-headed, faint, or dizzy
  •   Sweaty palms or feet
  •   Irritability
  •   Gastrointestinal problems
  •   Excessive worry
  •   Rapid heart rate
  •   Muscle tension
  •   Feeling overwhelmed
  •   Having difficulty quieting the mind
  •   Poor concentration
  •   Forgetfulness
  •   Low energy

The rationale for creating Bioteen’s Relaxify was to provide a nutritional supplement for Teens that promotes a calm and relaxed emotional and physiological state. 

As stress can often be confused with anxiety and given that many teens are suffering with what is known as generalized anxiety disorder, parents should seek medical advice to properly ascertain the nature of their child’s stress or anxiety before using Relaxify.

What Is Relaxify & Who Should Be Taking It

Relaxify is a cherry-flavoured drink, formulated to promote a calm and relaxed emotional and physiological state.  Its ingredients work synergistically to promote relaxation and reduce neuronal overstimulation by increasing relaxing alpha wave activity in the brain, along with the synthesis and regulation of relaxing neurotransmitters.

The Science (How Relaxify Works)

The ingredients in Relaxify have been chosen to contribute to Brain Function, Anti-Anxiety & Hyperactivity and Mood.

Suntheanine® is a high quality form of L-Theanine, an amino acid naturally found in tea. Several studies conducted in humans have shown that L-theanine intake significantly increases α-wave production in the brain. Alpha-wave activity in humans indicates wakeful relaxation as well as increased creativity, better performance under stress, and improved learning and concentration, as well as decreased anxiety.

Suntheanine® has sometimes been called “Zen in a Bottle’ for its unique ability to promote a sense of calmness.  Theanine increases levels of the calming neurotransmitter, GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) to induce the related, yet focused “Alpha” state normally attained through relaxation techniques such as meditation.  As the active substance in green tea, theanine has been used for centuries to increase focus, concentration, learning and memory while provide a sense of “alert” relaxation and shutting off “worry” impulses.

GABA is an amino acid manufactured in brain cells. Like L-theanine, GABA increases the production of alpha waves while decreasing beta waves (associated with hyperactivity and nervousness). Supplementation in humans during stressful situations has shown support for the maintenance of healthy levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

GABA acts as a significant mood modulator by regulating the neurotransmitters noradrenaline, dopamine and serotonin. GABA helps to shift a tense worried state to relaxation. Reduced levels of GABA in the brain and nervous system are linked to anxiety, tension and insomnia.

Often referred to as the relaxation mineral, Magnesium plays a role in nerve impulse transmission and is also an essential co-factor for numerous enzymatic reactions in the body. Supplementing with Magnesium has been shown to support a healthy mood.

Chronic physical or mental stress depletes your body of magnesium, and low magnesium levels intensify stress — creating a vicious cycle. Magnesium modulates activity of the body’s stress-response system, and studies suggest increasing magnesium intake may reduce anxiety, ease stress and minimize the response to fear.

The amino acid Taurine is a precursor to GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter. Taurine is an agonist of “inhibitory” systems in the brain which promote relaxation. Taurine also plays a neuroprotective role by preventing overstimulation of neurones which can lead to cell damage and death (a process known as excitotoxicity).

Myo-Inositol may help balance important chemicals in your brain, including those believed to affect your mood, such as serotonin and dopamine. Interestingly, researchers have found that some people with depression, anxiety and compulsive disorders have lower levels of inositol in their brain. Myo-inositol also assists with the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels which has a positive impact on brain function.

Levels of Myo-inositol are especially high in the brain. In fact, the brain can make large amounts of Myo-inositol from the products of glucose breakdown. Myo-inositol levels in brain cells are a measure of the “energy charge” of cells. Scientists believe that the more inositol brain cells have, the better they’re protected and the greater the overall energy in the brain.

Inositol is believed to improve depression and anxiety by stimulating the production of the “feel-good” hormones serotonin and dopamine. The hypothesis is largely supported by research in which Myo-inositol concentrations in blood is suggested a reliable marker for clinical depression.

Ingredient Transparency & Quality (Not All Ingredients Are Created Equally)

Bioteen showcases a relentless commitment to a superior quality product that is both ethical and safe for consumption in the extremely important phase of the lives of teens.

Ingredient quality is a core focus for us at Bioteen because better ingredients yield products that are highly effective and safe. That’s why Bioteen has set the bar high when it comes to the evaluation of our ingredients, from how different forms of ingredients work in the body to where they are sourced and how they have been manufactured. Bioteen has partnered with international suppliers who share our beliefs for quality, purity and scientific research.

  • Ingredient safety: All ingredients used in Bioteen are GRAS certified (Generally Recognised as Safe) as published by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • Scientifically Researched: we only use ingredients that have been tested in scientific studies to be safe and effective for their intended purpose. 
  • Allergen control: Bioteen products have been formulated with a careful consideration for consumers with specific allergies and sensitivities.
  • Branded ingredients: our key active ingredients are all branded, i.e. trademarked-protected, ingredients. Branded ingredients are manufactured to higher quality standards than generic products and offer higher levels of purity, transparency in their manufacturing as well as clinical research supporting their efficacy. Branded ingredients often provide scientific and educational support that makes it easy for a consumer to learn more about the science behind the specific ingredient used in the making of Bioteen products.

At Bioteen, we have a commitment to quality throughout our entire manufacturing process. Because we source all our raw materials ourselves, we have total control over what goes into Bioteen products. Our manufacturing is then undertaken by carefully selected contract manufacturers who are third-party certified.

Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) certification: CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the Food and Drug Administration “FDA”. is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. The cGMP acronym originated in the USA, where the US food and Drug Administration wanted to impress upon manufacturers the importance and need for “continuous” improvement to their approach to product quality.
