Blood Sugar Balance from RidgeCrest Herbals uses a traditional Chinese formula to maintain a balanced blood sugar level and support mood and focus, with only five ingredients: gypsum, anemarrhena root, licorice root, non-glutinous rice and eleuthero root. Gypsum is calcium sulfate, and helps to support healthy blood sugar levels. Anemarrhena was traditionally used to help maintain and regulate proper energy levels and pancreatic health. Licorice root supports the stomach and spleen, and also reduces harsh effects from some of the other ingredients. Rice has been traditionally thought to restore the natural acid balance of both the blood and the intestinal tract. While ginseng was used in the original formula, Blood Sugar Balance now uses eleuthero root instead because of availability and additional research backing. Blood Sugar Balance comes in vegan capsules.
RidgeCrest Herbals’ Anxiety Free supplement helps support calmness while reducing stress and irritability by combining several clinically proven ingredients. Sensoril is a patented ingredient that has been shown to increase resistance to stress and fatigue while promoting mental clarity and energy levels in multiple trials. L-theanine is an amino acid said to provide a sense of relaxation within 30-40 minutes by producing alpha brain waves and a neurotransmitter called GABA. GABA influences the levels of dopamine and serotonin, with human research showing it to induce relaxation while also reducing anxiety in subjects. This formula is rounded out with ingredients like B-vitamins, eleuthero, lemon balm and holy basil. Anxiety Free comes in vegan capsules.
RidgeCrest is also happy to announce new label designs for all its products, as can be seen in the before and after shots below.
