Our lavender oil boasts an impressive profile of active constituents useful for coping with mental stress, exhaustion, and sleep issues.
Lavender oil is steam-distilled from the flowers of the lavender plant. The unique mosaic of naturally occurring phytochemicals includes linalool and linalyl acetate, considered to be its main active constituents.
Linalool exerts a relaxing effect on smooth muscles by inhibiting release of the compound acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that acts within the neuromuscular junction. Simply put, acetylcholine triggers nerves to stimulate muscles; modulation of this compound promotes relaxation. Lavender oil has also been shown to support activity of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the amino acid that regulates and relaxes brain activity.
New Roots Herbal’s D-Stress softgels deliver relaxing effects for both body and mind.
