LEVIUM, a natural anxiety relief supplement made by Los Angeles-based Glauser Life Sciences, Inc., has won the award for Best Non-Prescription Stress and Anxiety Relief Supplement from Optimal Performance Living, a digital publication. LEVIUM’s unique formulation promises quick relief from stress and anxiety with no side effects, using natural, clinically proven ingredients that are non-addictive and safe to use with common prescription medications.
New York, NY, October 20, 2023 – Optimal Performance Living has announced that LEVIUM has been honored with its award for the Best Non-Prescription Stress and Anxiety Relief Supplement. A safe and effective nutraceutical, LEVIUM offers an alternative to prescription medications, using natural ingredients that balance neurotransmitters to reduce anxiety and the effects of stress.
Anxiety disorder is a challenging mental health disease that frequently calls for medical and psychological support. Occasional feelings of anxiety are a normal part of life, but individuals who experience frequent episodes of life-interfering anxiety are said to suffer from disorders because of intense, excessive, continuous worry and even terror about commonplace events or activities. Anxiety disorders in the U.S. now affect almost 40 million people above the age of 18, presenting a significant demand for effective treatment.
Industry analysts say the global anxiety treatment market is expected to reach $16.26 billion by 2029, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5%. The market is driven by the rising incidence of anxiety illnesses and increasing government initiatives to promote mental health awareness. The global pandemic of COVID-19, stressful work environments, and sedentary lifestyles have also contributed to an increased number of anxiety disorder patients, further driving demand for remedies such as LEVIUM.
LEVIUM’s effectiveness stems from its capacity to protect and promote the neurotransmitter neuropeptide Y (NPY), a powerful anxiolytic. Known as “the resilience neurotransmitter,” it counterbalances cortisol, the body’s stress hormone. LEVIUM also helps increase blood flow to the brain and supports healthy neural activity. It is non-addictive and specifically designed to have no contraindications with common anti-anxiety medications and antidepressants, including SSRIs. Glauser Life Sciences, Inc., the maker of LEVIUM, was founded in 2015 by CEO Christopher Adams. LEVIUM is currently distributed directly to consumers online, via Amazon.com, and on a wholesale basis.
LEVIUM’s founder felt severe anxiety in his youth, but it wasn’t until his seven-year-old daughter began experiencing acute symptoms of the same disorder that he began to look for answers outside the realm of conventional anti-anxiety protocols.
“After about three ER visits, we started a series of SSRI treatments which resulted in behavior that was terrifying to me – including suicidal ideation, and as a parent, you know, having your daughter running into walls saying she just wants to end it – it got real bad.”
It was then that Adams began serious research into the causes of anxiety disorders. One day, he happened across a Defense Department study of NPY, which described instances of administration to soldiers where the neurotransmitter functioned as a “fearless pill that would make them ‘superhuman’ and not afraid.” This led Adams to further research the potential of NPY as an anti-anxiety agent. Reaching out to clinicians from esteemed institutions across the country, he found support for his theory that NPY supplements might provide significant relief from anxiety. This led to the formulation of LEVIUM.
LEVIUM’s proprietary blend includes apigenin, an extract of chamomile, and luteolin, a Chrysanthemum derivative commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine. Unlike other anti-anxiety therapies, these ingredients preserve the effects of NPY by inhibiting DPP-4 (dipeptidyl peptidase-4), a natural enzyme that degrades NPY.
“I don’t think there’s another product on the market with a DPP-4 inhibitor,” says Adams. LEVIUM also contains GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid), a neurotransmitter known to counterbalance the action of glutamate, an excitatory neurotransmitter. In addition, ashwagandha enhances the body’s resilience to stress. Additional ingredients in LEVIUM provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, along with essential vitamins and minerals.
LEVIUM is offered in two different forms: LEVIUM Capsules, which build resilience with increasing effectiveness over time, and Premium Liquids, which provide rapid relief.
