Natural Approaches for the Management of Anxiety

We are living in the age of anxiety. Between the constant hustle and worries both big and small, there are stressors around every corner. At any given time, roughly one in fourteen (7.3%) people around the world have an anxiety disorder and about one in nine (11.6%) would experience an anxiety disorder in a given year [1] 

While anxiety disorders often co-occur with other mental disorders (such as depression or eating disorder), anxiety diagnoses are also relatively common in people with chronic diseases (such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases). [2] [3]

Anxiety and depressive disorders are also reported to be the most common health issues in Hong Kong [4]. Hong Kong has one of the longest working hours in the world (51.1 hours per week), with 39% of people working 4-8 hours overtime each week [5]. 1 in 4 Hong Kong workers suffer symptoms of depression and anxiety – 2.5 times the global average – and around 18% require psychological treatment [6].

    Designs for Health Liposomal Neurocalm™

    Liposomal NeuroCalm™ is a unique blend of GABA and L-theanine to support mental calm and a healthy response to stress.**

    The ingredients are formulated with liposomal technology. Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids—the primary building blocks of cell membranes. Owing to this structure, liposomes bond easily with cell membranes to facilitate intracellular delivery of their nutrient cargo.

    Thanks to this enhanced delivery and absorption, nutrients delivered in liposomal form offer superior absorption and bioavailability. Each 2 mL serving (4 pumps) of this formula provides 240 mg of GABA and 100 mg of L-theanine.

    Designs for Health Insomnitol™

    Insomnitol™ is a blend of botanicals, nutrients, and neurotransmitter precursors designed to support quality, restful sleep.

    By providing nutritional support for calm brain activity, Insomnitol™ helps promote the body's natural ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Key ingredients include botanicals that support nervous system function, PharmaGABATM (a proprietary form of GABA), L-theanine, melatonin, 5-HTP, and pyridoxal-5-phospate (activated form of vitamin B6).
