NUTRICALM for DOGS: A FORMULA DESIGNED to CALM and SOOTHE
Supplied in 50 capsule bottles
Nutricalm features pharmaceutical grade l-tryptophan, an essential amino acid which is converted to serotonin in the brain. It also contains another amino acid, l-theanine, which is found in green tea. Theanine is the reason why green tea, with its caffeine, doesn't make you edgy. Theanine is what puts the "zen" into green tea, and other than its calming properties, theanine has also been shown to have a beneficial affect against neoplastic cells in the laboratory.
The Ayurvedic herb, Ashwaganda, and the western herbs, Catnip and Valerian, will help to soothe and relax your dog, naturally. Additionally, Nutricalm for Dogs contains calcium and magnesium, which are known to relax the body, based on their known effect on nerves and muscles.
Ashwaganda is an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body adapt to stress, and is one of the major herbs in the Ayurvedic tradition.

"I have found in my veterinary practice, that using some essential oil of peppermint, a few drops on the palm of your hand, and then applied to bottoms of the front leg's paws with produce and aromatherapy effect that is calming. This works even better when used in combination with Nutricalm for Dogs." --Dr. Robert Silver DVM, MS
