Derived from a patented, purified, powdered extract of Apocynum venetum, Venetron® is a new dietary ingredient for sleep and mood support that has great potential to vastly improve health outcomes. Unlike other mood support herbs such as St. John's Wort, Venetron does not affect the CYP3A pathway and is also more potent and therefore requires a lower dose (just 50 mg per day).
Standardized to contain at least 4% hyperoside and isoquercitrin, Venetron has been shown in several placebo-controlled human clinical trials to:
- Promote a positive outlook*
- Alleviate occasional stress*
- Improve sleep quality*
These results confirm the findings of earlier animal research.
Mechanism of Action
Venetron is believed to exert its effects in the following ways:
- Reducing secretion of chromogranin A, a stress marker*
- Working in synergy with GABA, whose main function is to calm brain excitation*
- Increasing serotonin levels, thereby boosting mood*
Venetron is an extract of Apocynum venetum, an herb that has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is also consumed as food and tea. Studies on Apocynum venetum have confirmed its safety., Venetron’s action is based on well-known and safe flavonoid phytocompounds, and it has not demonstrated any significant adverse effects in clinical trials.
