Chill Out Herbal Supplement
What is this product used for?
Chill Out is a blend of herbs that makes use of the bodies natural mechanisms to create a sense of calm. Certain amino acids, minerals, enzymes, vitamins and terpenes are intrinsically used by the body to modify the brain, heart, circulatory and nervous system. Chill Out was designed to take advantage of those natural processes in order to influence the brain and body to “chill out.”
This blend is naturally high in Trypsin, which is a calming amino acid, as well as a “bring down” from elevated states. This can be used acutely, such as in the case of fireworks or thunder, or it can be used for chronic anxiety.
NOTE: Chronic anxiety may be a sign of diagnosed or undiagnosed heart conditions. Consider having your pet's heart checked (via Echocardiogram) if they have a chronic anxiety condition that does not have a clear underlying cause. Additionally, this product (as with any holistic product) is not a sedative. It will not bring your pet's energy level below their normal & no supplement should be used in lieu of proper exercise and mental stimulation. Rather, this supplement is designed to be used in addition to exercise, mental stimulation, proper diet and other supporting factors.
Non-GMO Arthrospira platensis
Spirulina is a nutritive edible microalgae. It is grown in controlled conditions for safety. It’s over 60% protein and contains a variety of amino acids, polysac- charides, B-vitamins and minerals. It’s high in the amino acid Trypsin which activates the protein activated receptors (PAR) in the brain that control brain inflammation & health.
Scutellaria lateriflora (leaf)
Skullcap is a nervine herb. It is GABAergic which gives it calming effects. It also contain several flavonoid compounds which bind to the serotonin 5-HT7. Some of its most well researched flavonoids are scutellarin, methoxyflavone, and catalpol.
Nepeta cataria (leaf)
Catnip contains nepetalactone which can promote:
- Good mood
- Reduced anxiety and nervousness
- Good sleep
- Digestive calm (reduces upset stomach)
Matricaria chamomilla (flower)
On a molecular level, Chamomile’s mechanism of action is similar to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. It inhibits PGE2 and reduces COX2 inflammatory enzymes. Chamomile is one of the most gentle calming herbs. It promotes relaxation, digestive health & quality sleep
Passionflower is cooling to the body which can assist with a sense of calm. It promotes natural relaxation and helps the mind cope with stress. Passionflower is one of very few plant products with a high level of Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs). MAOI enzymes prevent the breakdown of monoamine transmitters - this increases the bioavailability of the beneficial constituents of other herbs in this blend. Without Passionflower, the benefits of the blend would be limited.
Rosa canina and Rosa rubiginosa
Rose bushes produce tiny fruits in the summertime, they are called Rosehips. Rosehips are one of the most concentrated sources of Vitamin C in the natural world. The highest concentrations of Vitamin C in the body are in the brain and neuroendocrine tissues. Vitamin C helps to regulate some nutrients in the brain and joints (allowing collagen to absorb properly into tissues). Deficiency of Vitamin C, therefore, can result in dysregulation of the brain as well as increased breakdown (and potentially pain) in the tissues of the body.
Lavandula angustifolia (flowers)
Lavender is well known for its calming properties. Many don’t know that there are additional medicinal properties.
- Can treat parasitic infections
- Can treat burns
- Can treat insect bites
- Can decrease muscle spasms
- Can assist with neurological disorders - it can stabilize mood, function as a sedative, analgesic, and it has anti-convulsive and neuroprotective properties
Lavender contains high levels of a terpene called Linalool. Linalool has the ability to:
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce aggressive behavior
- Improve desire for social interaction
Lavender has also been studied for its beneficial effects on acute and chronic pain conditions.

This product is not intended to cure, treat or diagnose any disease
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOI’s) are enzymes that are not manufactured by the body. They influence norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. Therefore, they change the brain's chemistry. In pharmacology, they are used as antidepressants. Some of the healing chemical constituents in plants are not accessible to us without MAOI enzymes to break them down and allow access to them in the digestive tract.
This enzyme is naturally occurring in certain plants such as Passionflower, Kava Kava, and Chacruna (used in tandem with Ayahuasca). Because pharmaceuticals have a strong influence on the body’s chemistry, it should be assumed that it is unsafe to blend pharmaceutical MAOI’s with herbal MAOI’s.
We recommend that no pet owner blend Chill Out with any MAOI containing drug. Blending these types of pharmaceuticals with Chill Out has the potential to cause Serotonin Syndrome (an acute health crisis that causes agitation and symptoms opposite of what you’re trying to achieve by giving Chill Out.) Aside from negative effects on the brain, elevated levels of Serotonin in the body can cause intestinal and systemic inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, and more.
