ave you ever noticed how calm and blissful newborn babies seem to be immediately after suckling?

Researchers have long speculated that a substance in milk might be responsible for that state of deep relaxation.

They were proven right, with the discovery of a unique and simple active ingredient called alpha-S1 tryptic casein that is:

Derived from milk using a process that replicates the natural digestive process that occurs in newborn babies;

Isolated without the use of chemical products.
The brain contains chemicals called neurotransmitters that relay signals between nerve cells (or neurons), to tell our body and brain what to do.

There are two types of neurotransmitters: excitatory neurotransmitters, that stimulate the brain, and inhibitory neurotransmitters, that help calm the brain and balance moods.

Alpha-S1 tryptic casein is believed to bind to the brain’s GABA receptors, which are inhibitory neurotransmitters.

This binding process increases the calming effect of these inhibitory neurotransmitters, helping to restore balance and decrease stress.

Alpha-S1 tryptic casein is the active ingredient in Zylkène® , a natural product with calming properties developed specifically for dogs and catscats.

The science behind alpha-S1 tryptic casein

 

The brain contains chemicals called neurotransmitters, that relay signals between nerve cells (or neurons), to tell our body and brain what to do.

There are two types of neurotransmitters: excitatory neurotransmitters, that stimulate the brain, and inhibitory neurotransmitters, that help calm the brain and balance moods.

Alpha-S1 tryptic casein is believed to bind to GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter) receptors in the brain.

This binding process "mimics" the effect of the neurotransmitter GABA, thereby helping to restore balance and decrease stress.
