World Mental Health Day

Almost 1 billion people in the world are struggling with mental disorders. On the contrary, people tend to be underdiagnosed or underreport such conditions regardless of countless healthcare provisions. Hence, the true value remains unknown.

Mental health is the mediator of emotions, communication, resilience and cognitive functions such as thinking and learning. Just like any part of the human body, it can fall ill. Mental illnesses, also known as mental disorders are conditions that affect one’s emotions, thoughts and behaviour. These conditions can take place in just about anyone where they disrupt daily life in certain ways ranging from mild phobia to medical care requirements.

A few common examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorders, Schizophrenia, eating disorders, personality disorders, bipolar disorders and many more. People may exhibit different signs depending on the condition and circumstances. These signs include:

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably placed a huge impact around the world and one of them is the global recession. The governments have requested for lockdowns in hopes of protecting the citizens and keeping the virus under control. As a consequence, companies were put under economic crisis and were forced to terminate a large number of staff. Employees who suffer from unemployment experience stress and a loss of self-esteem which in many cases can lead to mental health concerns.


Today, large investments are needed in the healthcare system and this involves the care for mental health as well. Though traditional treatments like psychotherapy and medications have shown promising results in resolving underlying problems, supplements may be beneficial in long term management. Calmz™ is a clinically proven alternative remedy for individuals suffering from anxiety disorder, insomnia, dramatic mood changes, fatigue, headaches and forgetfulness.

AVtron™, the main active ingredient of Calmz™ functions synergistically with GABA to reduce the secretion of chromogranin A (stress maker) and increases the serotonin levels of the body, thereby boosting mood. It is derived from Apocynum venetum leaves, a shrub of the dogbane family growing in mid-to-northwestern regions of China which contains consistent levels of 4 bioactive flavonoids hyperoside, isoquercitrin, kaempferol and quercetin.

Calmz™ also contains tart cherry which helps in regulating the body’s bio clock as it contains melatonin; collagen tripeptide where glycine – the main amino acid in collagen is found to improve sleep quality, lessen daytime sleepiness and improve performance of memory recognition tasks; vitamin C aids in the maintenance of normal antioxidant levels in the brain which ensures the ability of blood vessels to relax and constrict for proper brain function and prevent memory impairment.
