Composure Liquid is designed to reduce nervousness, hyperactivity, anxiety, and environmentally induced stresses without affecting your pet's emotional balance and personality. It's an advanced formula that contains a combination of nutritional factors, not found in other calming formulas, which help to reduce behavioral problems associated with stressful situations. It can be used daily or just when extra help to relax is needed.
It combines a Colostrum Calming Complex with L-Theanine and Thiamine (Vitamin B1), which all address
stress management and calming. Isolated from colostrum proteins which have a calming effect on animals,
these bioactive proteins have been found to support cognitive functioning and support stress reduction.
The Colostrum Calming Complex works synergistically with the L-Theanine in this formula to promote relaxation and cognition.
B Vitamins help manage stress and help reduce irritability. Thiamine (Vitamin B1) specifically has been shown to affect the central nervous system to help calm and sooth anxious animals. Because Thiamine is not stored in the body, increased activity, stress, illness, or increase metabolism depletes its levels in the body. Deficiencies cause mental confusion, muscular weakness, muscle spasms, nervousness, and weight and appetite loss during periods of stress.
L-Theanine supports calming and relaxation, reduces irritability and low mood states. We use the Suntheanine® brand which has extensive research and documentation, over 45 studies that suggest it is helpful in the area of reducing stress and anxiety. L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid found in green tea that is a derivative of glutamic acid a neurotransmitter in the brain. It helps the body to produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA and Tryptophan and helps bring certain neurotransmitters into better balance. Studies done on L-Theanine showed that dogs reduced anxiety related behavior without adverse effects, and no reported drowsiness; dogs were alert, playful, and calmer then expected given their situations.
Calm Discovery™ Liquid for Cats and Dogs does not make use of any herbal ingredients (Kava Kava, Valerian, St. John's wort, etc.) or L-Tryptophan. Its ingredients do not cause side effects, addiction, drowsiness or impair motor skills.
It can be used daily or just when extra help to relax is needed.
