Where the Wild Things Go has three important ingredients: Lemon Balm, Gingko Leaf, and Valerian. These potent herbs calm the mind, focus the mind, and relax the body. This is why this formula was intended to target those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s believed that lemon balm makes the neurotransmitter gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) more readily accessible in the brain. (GABA helps regulate your body’s stress response.) Gingko Leaf Valerian includes the compounds valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and a variety of antioxidants which inhibit excessive activity in the amygdala, a part of the brain that processes fear and strong emotional responses to stress. Researchers believe that ginkgo improves cognitive function because it promotes good blood circulation in the brain and protects the brain and other parts from neuronal damage.
