Beet Root Latte

Dr. Melissa West

Feeling the pink? Try this Collagen Beet Root Latte, perfect for stress busting. L-theanine helps reduce stress by inducing a relaxing effect without drowsiness and reduces the perception of stress. L-theanine also increases alpha brainwaves which help calm an anxious brain, and can slightly improve attention spans. Magnesium Bisglycinate can impact stress response at a cellular level by helping to support sleep, blood pressure, calm the brain and help improve long and short-term memory. It also regulates your nervous system and influences the release of neurotransmitters to help cope with anxiety and stress.
