be taken with other medications?
Information derived from studies and reviews by
physicians who actively use nutritional supplements in their practice
tell us that the incidence of problems with medications and supplements
is extremely low. In the case of the ingredients in beCALMd
the only precaution noted is the use of MAOI medications. It is NOT advisable
to take medications and supplements at exactly the same time. You should
allow 2-3 hours between use of medications and supplements for maximum
safety. In any case, always consult your Physician before taking
any dietary supplements.
Explain the precautions on the label
Phenylketonuria is a condition that develops in-utero
in which the baby is not able to metabolize phenylalanine properly. This
is checked for at birth and, if present, is treated with dietary restriction.
Pregnant women should not use any supplement containing L-phenylalanine
due to this concern. Nursing mothers should not use supplemental L-phenylalanine
for the same reason. Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOI) are a form of
antidepressant medications. The most common are Parnate, Nardil and Marplan.
Persons taking these medications should not use supplemental phenylalanine
due to the possibility of increased blood pressure.
6. Can I give beCALM'd
to my 3 or 4 year old child?
We recommend that parents be very cautious in using
supplements or psychoactive medications with children this young. The
majority of our feedback on success and safety of use comes from children
over the age of six. It must be the parents decision for use with
children under the age of six (6).
work the same as Ritalin or Adderall?
NO! These drugs are in the family of amphetamines
and their action is to make the persons dopamine work harder and
longer. By speeding up dopamine activity, usually in the right hemisphere
of the brain, there is a better balance between the two halves of the
brain and this results in less uncontrolled activity and an increase in
focus. The problem is these drugs have significant side effects and produce
works to increase the availability of dopamine and associated neurotransmitters
in a natural metabolic manner and consequently achieves the desired balance
and benefits without serious side effects.
8. Are there any side effects with beCALM'd?
long as you heed the warning about MAOIs the only reported side
effects have been an occasional headache on first using the supplement.
The solution is to reduce the dosage for a few days to become accustomed
to the product. If you find that your sleep is interfered with you should
take the last dose earlier in the day.
9. What are amino acids?
from your hair down to your toes is made of combinations of amino acids.
Your hormones, blood cells, muscles, organs and neurotransmitters in the
brain are made of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of
life. There are twenty amino acids that do all of this building and eight
of them are referred to as essential amino acids. This means
it is essential you take them in through nutrition (or supplements) because
your body cannot manufacture them from other chemicals. The amino acids
are phenylalanine, both d and l form, and glutamine. Phenylalanine is
the building block for noradrenalin and dopamine. Glutamine builds GABA,
the major calming chemical in the brain.
10. Is L-phenylalanine the same thing as NutraSweet
is an essential amino acid. That means it is essential you get it in your
diet daily because your body cannot manufacture it from other chemicals.
Phenylalanine produces Dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure,
love and attachment. Phenylalanine is used in artificial sweeteners because
it has a slightly sweet taste. The only time phenylalanine has been found
to be a problem is the use of the free form powder. This appears to put
too much into the blood stream too quickly and causes a spike in adrenalin
output. When phenylalanine is combined with other protein, or is in the
capsule form, the problem did not occur. We combine both forms of phenylalanine
for slower absorption and encapsulate it with other products for maximum
protection and effect.
11. What is 5HTP? Is it natural or synthetic?
stands for 5 Hydroxy Tryptophan and is the "immediate precursor"
building block for Serotonin, a very important neurotransmitter in the
brain. Serotonin helps to maintain emotional stability and aids in sleep.
5HTP is derived in the natural state by the grinding of seeds from the
Griffonia plant. It is not a synthetic chemical.
12. Does 5HTP cause "Serotonin syndrome"?
syndrome is most commonly caused by the combination of multiple
antidepressant medications. Currently most forms of anti- depressants
work on both Serotonin and Dopamine to some degree. Some forms are selective
for Serotonin. These medications work to make your neurotransmitters work
longer and harder. They do not help to produce more neurotransmitters.
When combined improperly they activate too much Serotonin and produce
a number of unpleasant symptoms such as agitation and confusion. 5HTP
simply helps with the production, not the activation, of Serotonin. We
are not aware of any documented studies that implicate 5HTP in this condition
in the absence of multiple antidepressant medications.
