Passionflower has a longstanding history as a medicinal plant used to reduce nervousness. It appears to boost the level of GABA in the brain. This compound lowers brain activity, which may help you relax. A team from the Global Neuroscience Initiative Foundation evaluated 24 studies into supplements commonly used to reduce stress found “strong evidence exists for the use of herbal supplements containing extracts of passionflower. ... “
These and other therapeutic ingredients combined with 25mg of premium CBD in our Mood & Calm chewable tablets can help you face life’s daily stressors head-on. Zebra CBD Mood & Calm could be an important breakthrough to help you overcome glossophobia once and for all.
