Chill Pill + is formulated to increase relaxation by up regulating the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. This effect will help you reduce anxiousness, tension and fear.
It was discovered and introduced into clinical practice in Russia in the 1960s. It acts as a GABA-mimetic, primarily at GABA (B) receptors and also stimulates dopamine receptors. Phenibut is similar to GABA, but has a phenol group attached. This phenol group allows for the crossing of the blood brain barrier. Phenibut is widely used in Russia to relieve tension, anxiety, and fear, as well as to improve sleep.
Hops – Most often used medicinally for their calming effects. Traditional medicine has used hops as a sedative for centuries, while only recently has one of the possible components been identified as having calming effects.

Like Valerian, Passion Flower helps support the production of GABA, that promotes relaxation in the central nervous system.
