As an Indian-American and the daughter of an ayurvedic herbalist, Shanti’s founder has been utilizing ancient blends of ayurvedic herbs and minerals all her life to aid in everything from stress management to pain relief and sleep, as well as immune support.

Today we are highlighting the ingredients found in Tranquil, our mood, and stress support supplement.
Tranquil is created from a blend of stress-busting ashwagandha, reparative Niacinamide, mood-improving GABA, focus boosting L-Tyrosine, and performance-enhancing magnesium citrate. These herbs and minerals combine to form a once-daily supplement to help you feel more energized, alert, and calm throughout the day.
Ashwagandha: extracted from the roots and leaves of a flowering plant native to India, ashwagandha has been used for millennia in India as a part of their ayurvedic practices. It has a variety of uses and its root is regarded as a tonic, aphrodisiac, narcotic, diuretic, anthelmintic, astringent, thermogenic and stimulant.
Niacinamide: a form of vitamin B3 found in foods and natural sources such as rice bran and yeast, Niacinamide was first isolated in the 20th century as an important dietary vitamin, essential for heart, brain and skin health.
GABA: an amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system to regulate mood. Our bodies naturally produce GABA as a response to over-activity and stress in the brain in order to bring our nervous systems back to a state of calm. GABA supplements are taken orally for relieving anxiety, improving mood, reducing PMS symptoms, promoting lean muscle growth, and relieving pain.
L-Tyrosine: another amino acid, L-Tyrosine is a popular dietary supplement used to improve alertness, focus and attention as it assists in brain cell function and communication, and has even been shown to improve memory and learning.
Magnesium Citrate: magnesium is an abundant element on earth and is found in every organ of the human body. First recognized in 1775, magnesium was initially prescribed by physicians for an upset stomach. Today we know that it has many more uses, including as a natural antacid and laxative, for pain relief, sleep problems, and even athletic performance. It is sometimes recommended by doctors to help treat people with a variety of more serious illnesses including high blood pressure, preeclampsia, and heart attack. One of our most powerful naturally occurring minerals!
