These bioactive proteins have been found to support cognitive function and help manage normal stress. The Colostrum Calming Complex® Biopeptide Blend works synergistically with the L-Theanine in this formula to promote relaxation and cognition in cats. L-Theanine supports calming and relaxation and may reduce irritability and low mood states. L-Theanine has been extensively researched for its ability to manage normal stress, anxiety, and unwanted behavior. L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid found in green tea that is a derivative of the neurotransmitter glutamic acid. It helps the body produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA and tryptophan and it helps bring certain neurotransmitters into balance. Studies on L-Theanine showed reduced anxiety-related behavior in cats without adverse effect or drowsiness; cats were alert, playful, and calmer in stressful situations. Thiamine (Vitamin B1) may help to manage stress and reduce irritability. Thiamine has been shown to affect the central nervous system to help calm and soothe anxious animals. A lack of thiamine can cause mental confusion, muscular weakness, muscle spasms, nervousness, reduced appetite, or weight loss during periods of stress.
