Calm and Clear provides a blend of herbs, vitamins, and amino acids to help you ride the waves of your rocking life without losing sleep or feeling anxious while being productive and feeling grounded.
Essential survival tool to promote a calm balanced state during times of stress!
This unique formulation is designed to support healthy catecholamine (excitatory neurotransmitter) levels with adaptogenic herbs and nutrients that help balance mood, promoting calmness and relaxation. Calm and Clear reduces your body’s stress response by supporting adrenal gland health, reducing excess cortisol output to limit undesired blood sugar spikes and body fat storage. This formula also contains a potent dose of the amino acid l-theanine supportive of creative thought process, concentration, focus, and healthy stress response.
Vitamin C and the B vitamin family: Help support steady energy levels. When the body is under stress, it can get “revved up” and burn through nutrients quickly, so it is important to maintain sufficient levels of these valuable vitamins. Vitamin B12 helps support proper levels of catecholamines. Note: this formula is free of folate intentionally to allow flexible dosing without overdriving methylation pathways.
Vitamins C and B5 (pantothenic acid) are important for healthy adrenal gland function — the adrenals being the primary glands responsible for producing the stress response.
Phosphatidylserine (PS): promotes healthy hormone levels by helping to normalize cortisol levels when the body is under stress, working to reduce cortisol peaks which can interrupt regulatory function and circadian rhythm such as waking in the middle of the night. The PS in this product is soy-free and is derived from sunflower lecithin.
Ashwagandha: An adaptogenic herb with a long history in Ayurvedic medicine for aiding healthy stress response. “Adaptogenic” herbs are given this name because they help the body adapt to stress, assisting in optimizing levels of hormones and neurotransmitters.
Magnesium: One of the body’s most important minerals; aids in muscle relaxation and therefore may help with occasional simple nervous tension and may offer a calming effect for both body and mind.
Valerian, lemon balm and passion flower: Herbs that promote relaxation, in part by supporting the production of GABA, a calming neurotransmitter that helps balance the stress catecholamines.

Why Naturally Nourished
- Clinical Results
- Synergistic Formulas
- Third Party Tested
Calm and Clear is my desert island supplement. I don’t think I could run a nutrition clinic, mother a 3 year old, and manage constant stress demands without it. It is a true chill pill, Calm and Clear aids in feeling grounded and cognitively sharp while functioning in total boss mode. When I am stressed and wired the use of this formula aids in regulating my fight-or-flight sympathetic mode, telling my body it is safe to shift into rest and digest parasympathetic mode. This regulatory vs. reactive survival state is essential for optimized thyroid, hormone, reproductive, digestive, and metabolic health. I take 6-9 per day and notice this level keeps me resilient, balanced, and focused.
This unique formula contains a blend of vitamins, minerals and adaptogenic herbs designed to support a healthy response to stress. The most well-known stress chemicals in the body are cortisol and the catecholamines – specifically, epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine. Calm and Clear is formulated to help balance the levels of these chemicals and to support overall health.
The mind-body connection is a powerful system; proper levels of stress chemicals help to support healthy blood sugar and insulin levels, body weight, the immune system and a positive mental outlook. When in excess these catecholamines and stress responding chemicals can make an individual feel buzzing or excitatory, constantly “on” as well as anxious and on edge. Calm and Clear may support not only stress management and a mellow mood but is a way to regulate the body at times of demand.
Can I take Calm and Clear with my medication?
Always consult your medical team when looking to add supplements to your medication list. With this said, the ingredients in this formula have no known drug-nutrient interaction and likely can be used in coordination with antidepressant and antianxiety medications.
This is often used in my clinic and as a recommended primary tool in The Anti-Anxiety Diet protocol to support optimal health in combination with, in place of, or to support successful wean of prescription medication.**
How quickly should it take to feel the effects?
Effects of most of these active ingredients can be felt within 30-45 minutes of use and often may last 8-10 hours.
With this said, consistent daily use may aid in further regulating mood and stress levels, preventing the body’s overreaction to stressors and reducing the anxious or irritable response at times of increased demand. It is best to establish a foundational level of 3-4 capsules per day and then increase as needed based on demand.
I see this formula has B12 and Ashwagandha, will it keep me up at night?
No, the synergy of ingredients including valerian, passion flower, and lemon balm serve as nervines to calm the nervous system and support deep restful sleep. Ashwagandha has been shown to support healthy quality sleep and balanced circadian rhythms. While B-12 can indeed support energy, it also supports neurological function and studies show B-12 deficiency can drive insomnia. However, everyone is biochemically unique and you may find best support with daytime use.
If this formula is for calming is it going to make me tired?
Just as noted in the question above, this is a balanced formula and although it contains nervine herbs and a calming blend of amino acids including l-theanine and taurine which reduce anxiety, the formula is not sedative or depleting in energy. When you aren’t constantly stressed and wired, your energy is tonified, grounded, and strong. This is a welcomed balance that allows the fortitude to take on the day in a relaxed but aware state supporting optimal cognitive function, creativity, and balanced mood.
These studies demonstrate the role of stress on blood sugar management and weight gain with the impact of Ashwagandha to reduce body fat, food cravings, and cortisol excess.
