A wise man named Lao Tzu once said, “If you are at peace you are living in the present.” The present represents a balance between the past and the future, with the understanding that an emphasis on one or the other may limit our sense of wellbeing. AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance is a gluten-free, vegan dietary supplement offering select ingredients that synergistically help to support a healthy nervous system and support mental focus in times of stress. Our state of mind is affected by hormones and the different amounts of neurotransmitters that excite, modulate, or inhibit chemical messages from one neuron to another. Together these hormones work to regulate or carry out a specific function of the central nervous system. Hormone fluctuations can impact the behavior and levels of the neurotransmitters located within the brain. Overall, maintaining a healthy balance of neurotransmitters in the brain enables our bodies to regulate mood and attention. Without a healthy balance of our neurotransmitters, we may find it more difficult to support our emotional wellbeing in stressful situations. AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance is formulated with 30 mg of saffron, extracted from the stigmas of the lavish crocus sativus flower, grouped with 200 mg of magnesium and 29 mg of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). These products, in conjunction with healthy lifestyle habits, can help support emotional wellness and mental clarity in times of stress.
AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance’s luxurious ingredient saffron, recognized for its unique golden coloring, has been utilized as a part of ancient health and nutrition practices for over 3,000 years. The scientifically studied saffron is packed full of biologically active compounds promoting various health benefits. These special compounds (crocin, crocetin, picrocrocin and safranal) are also responsible for saffron’s unique attributes and function. Crocetin and crocin specifically work to support cognition and memory as their antioxidant protective properties help support healthy cognitive function. This is true for younger adults as well as for those of more mature years. Saffron supplementation has been shown to support the healthy production and release of neurotransmitters (dopamine, the pleasure neurotransmitter and glutamate, the neurotransmitter associated with memory), and support emotional health and energy. Changes in hormones in our teen years, as well as later in life, can influence our mental emotional health, our memory, and our perception of our day-to-day stressors. Both short and long-term clinical studies completed on the supplementation of saffron, among adults, depict its ability to support calmness and help support feelings of assurance. One study conducted on teens, who supplemented with saffron, had congruent findings that saffron may help maintain healthy emotional wellness in stressful situations and support a feeling of ease. In females, changes in serotonin levels impact the natural balance of hormones. Studies show that 30 mg of saffron, in conjunction with its active compounds, may support healthy serotonin levels and help maintain a sense of balance.
Another inhibitory neurotransmitter that works to promote a sense of tranquility is gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance contains GABA, an amino acid that functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter essential to support healthy cognition and balance our behavior or excitability. GABA contains compounds that help to support various aspects of neurological functioning. The novel ingredient is associated with supporting a sense of calmness in times of stress. A healthy level of the neurotransmitter GABA is associated with quality sleep, emotional balance and a sense of calm. Frequent hormone fluctuations have a correlation with the activity of our brain’s neurotransmitters. For example, a woman’s progesterone levels can influence GABA neurotransmitter activity, in which higher levels of progesterone hormone are associated with greater GABA activity. Therefore, women may experience lower levels of GABA activity as progesterone levels decrease throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle. Adequate levels of the inhibitory neurotransmitters, GABA and Serotonin, may support a healthy stress response, healthy emotional wellbeing and sleep quality. One study on those who supplemented with 28 mg of GABA demonstrated it may support a healthy stress response, mental energy, and healthy neurological activity in areas of the brain associated with mental stimulation and memory. Magnesium can help to naturally support GABA levels within the brain and maintaining healthy levels of both is correlated with calm alertness and healthy sleep quality.
More people are finding that they are getting less magnesium through their diet. One contributing factor of depleted levels of magnesium is influenced by modern-day agriculture practices and soil deficiency. AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance contains magnesium bisglycinate, which is a form of magnesium that is easier for the body to absorb into the bloodstream and contains the amino acid glycine, offering relaxing properties that can help support healthy sleep duration. Scientific evidence also shows there is a correlation between increased daily stress and an inadequate amount of magnesium. Essentially, stressors can naturally deplete magnesium while low levels of magnesium can make it challenging to regulate stress. AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance was specifically formulated with magnesium, which is essential for the body’s cells to function properly and helps support the release of various hormones and excitatory neurotransmitters that supports the body’s healthy mental and emotional equilibrium.
The inner workings of one’s brain are unique to the individual and are responsible for releasing various neurotransmitters and hormones that impact and play an essential role in our overall well-being. Keeping a balanced mind while managing life’s daily stressors and unplanned events may allow for greater influence on perceptions of the world around us and support cognitive and emotional health. Harness your day with a daily serving of AXIS Nutrition™ Mental Emotional Balance to help support a healthy nervous system and promote mental focus in times of stress for a peace of mind; or as Shakespeare would say, “make not your thoughts your prisons.”
Formulated with the clinically studied ingredient saffron, paired with magnesium and GABA to support the noggin’s mental and emotional balance.

Saffron Extract: 30 mg
The unique spice, saffron comes from the pistil of the dried perennial plant recognized as the Crocus sativus. Most of the world’s saffron is grown and common in India, Greece, France, Spain and Italy. It has been used as a traditional spice, but also as a medicinal agent for at least 3,000 years. For health benefits, saffron has been traditionally used for its calming effects. The stigma, or the reddest part of the flowering plant, is what contains the highest quality of saffron because as it provides high levels of safranal. Saffron has been studied extensively and its health benefits have been found to be related to safranal and other saffron components called crocins. Evidence suggests that saffron’s active properties may supports normal levels of serotonin which helps support feelings of assurance and maintain a feeling of ease. Additionally, saffron also contains a variety of plant compounds that have antioxidant properties and work to protect cells against oxidative stress and damage by free radicals. Saffron’s antioxidant actions have been correlated to its work to help maintain normal learning and memory, and support neurological health.
Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) (from rice germ extract): 29 mg
GABA is an amino acid produced in the brain and in the body, it is considered one of the main neurotransmitters and highly important for relaxation. It has been studied for its role in supporting a healthy mood and maintaining emotional wellness, working in the body to support natural calm feelings. Adequate GABA levels are crucial to healthy strategies for relaxation, learning and memory Additionally, it works to exert sleep-promoting effects in the brain.
Magnesium (Bisglycinate): 200 mg
Magnesium is a mineral found in the body and provides numerous benefits essential for optimal health. In addition to being the fourth most abundant mineral found within the body, it plays a role in over 300 enzyme systems that help to regulate many of the body’s biochemical reactions. Magnesium bisglycinate is known to be more easily absorbed by the body because of its increased solubility. One study, measuring levels of magnesium over eight hours, revealed that magnesium bisglycinate was the most prevalent type of magnesium found in the body. Maintaining healthy levels of magnesium and other essential nutrients like a complex of B-vitamins can support mental focus and clarity in times of stress and is essential for healthy neurological function. Disturbances in sleep can also be a result when the body has inadequate levels of magnesium. One’s quality of sleep has also been shown to have a correlation with greater levels of magnesium present in the body. In comparison, lower levels of magnesium can make it more difficult for our muscles to relax after contraction and may lead to cramping which could disrupt sleep. Overall, magnesium can help support healthy sleep quality, supporting a sense of calm for more relaxed muscles and nerves.
