CalmEssence by Pure Essence Labs
Pure Essence Labs CalmEssense - 30 Vegetarian Capsules
Pure Essence Labs CalmEssense provides 150 mg per day of pure L-Theanine (Suntheanine), an amino acid from green tea that studies have shown promotes a sense of calm, even under extreme pressure. Pure Essence Labs CalmEssense also provides Honokiol, a phytochemical from Magnolia bark that helps us remain calm. These factors may help reduce the frequency of the stress response being triggered in your body. They may also reduce the intensity of stress responses when they do occur. Any reduction in the amount and/or intensity of stress response is a step toward better health.
Pure Essence Labs CalmEssense also provides Ashwagandha, Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), Schizandra, Rhodiola and Cordyceps, which, combined, provide the most profound adrenal support you'll find in any supplement. These botanicals rebuild adrenal energy, counteract the physiological effects of stress and renew adrenal integrity.
Stress is a major factor in modern life. Getting several kids to separate places all at the same time, financial concerns, domestic duties, disagreements, pressures at work, health problems, and other threats to our well being are nearly constant issues. While the body is equipped to deal with these issues on an occasional basis, we were not designed for constant stress.
When we feel threatened or are under pressure, the adrenal glands secrete hormones that help us run more quickly or fight more fiercely, thus increasing our chance for survival. However, as we enter survival mode, normal metabolic processes like immunity, digestion, bone building and reproduction are put on hold. Thus, the more pressure we are under, the less energy our bodies give to daily life needs.
Pure Essence Labs CalmEssense Features:
- 100% Natural Suntheanine (L-Theanine) - An amino acid naturally found in green tea. Promotes relaxation and calmness. Promotes alpha brainwaves (those that are most prevalent in states of meditation, prayer and other states of calm).
- Ashwagandha (4% withanolides) - A traditional Ayurvedic herb also known as "Indian Ginseng" and used as an adaptogen, which helps the body adapt to stressful situations. Anything that helps the body adapt to stress benefits the adrenals.

- Magnolia bark (2% honokiol) - Magnolia bark is rich in honokiol, which is thought to help control the production of cortisol-lowering effects of the plant. The honokiol is also believed to promote a sense of calm.
- Eleuthero root (0.8% eleutherosides) - Also known as Siberian ginseng. Supports all five major organ systems. Of extreme benefit to adrenals. Increases body's ability to use oxygen efficiently. Powerful adaptogen. Improves both physical and mental performance when under extreme stress. One of the world's most powerful health building supplements.

Environmental Impact and Packaging
Pure Essence Labs' commitment to nature drives everything they do: from how they source their ingredients to how they formulate; from how they package their products to which organizations they support. They are constantly working to reduce their environmental impact. Pure Essence Labs believes that no act is too small and that every little bit helps. All of their printed marketing materials are made from recycled paper and they use soy based inks whenever possible. Their boxes are printed using 100% certified renewable wind energy and carry the FSC logo for being made from well-managed forests and other controlled sources.
The nutritional supplement industry is not very well regulated. Most companies claim that their products are the purest, safest, most potent products on the shelves. In truth however, it is regularly revealed by watchdog consumer groups that this is not the case. Often nutritional supplements are of questionable quality and many actually contain contaminants like lead and other heavy metals, bacteria, solvent residues and other possibly dangerous contaminants. Many products don't meet the label claims for potency, amount of active ingredient or even the identity of the ingredient contained in the product. It is not that unusual for there to be ingredients not claimed on the label and in some cases there can be very little or even none of the listed main ingredients! Remarkable as it seems, it is definitely a "buyers beware" market.
Most supplement manufacturers like to believe that their raw materials suppliers are providing them with safe, uncut ingredients that are free from impurities and high in potency. Ingredient suppliers provide a Certificate of Analysis with raw materials from all over the world. These certificates list laboratory analysis test results for the material's identity, potency, heavy metal content, mold and bacteria. Most supplement manufactures like to believe that this is accurate information.
When Pure Essence Labs started to independently test the raw materials we were receiving, it became apparent that the Certificate of Analysis was often inaccurate and occasionally completely misleading. In embracing GMP standards they decided to build their own quality assurance laboratory. They decided if they couldn't trust their suppliers, they would find out for themselves if the raw materials they were using were the purest, safest, best quality ingredients available for their products.
It has been an educational process, but they know now that they have to test everything that goes into their products. If the tests don't validate what the supplier has stated on the Certificate of Analysis, they find a new supplier that has a better quality raw material. No compromises, no excuses. That is the Pure Essence promise!
Cellular Concept of Health
In every moment of every day, your body is busy conducting more than one million different types of cellular reactions. Health is simply a reflection of how efficiently these reactions occur.Cells, however, may lose their way for many reasons. They may lack the energy they need to do their work. They may lack the nutrients they need as raw materials. And, of course, they may be damaged by free radicals, bad fats, or excess sugar.
Although Pure Essence is but ten years old, their owners have been designing supplements for over 25 years each. They created the world's first "food-based" supplements, the world's first "green food" complexes, the world's first line of digestive enzymes, the world's first therapeutic enzyme products, and so on. So, even if you've never used a Pure Essence product, you've used something they created for another company, or something their creations inspired.
Now, they've created the world's first truly holistic supplements. Supplements that not only support health, but actually build it. What does this mean? That you'll feel better, stronger, more energetic and more alive with our products than with any other supplements on Earth.GMP is sometimes referred to as "cGMP". The "c" stands for "current," reminding manufacturers that they must employ technologies and systems which are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations. Systems and equipment used to prevent contamination, mix-ups, and errors, which may have been "top-of-the-line" 20 years ago, may be less than adequate by today's standards.
At Pure Essence Labs, they believe that the GMP regulations are parallel with they continued commitment of ensuring safety compliance and peak performance each time you select our products. They are hopeful GMP requirements ensure consistency between all herbal supplement manufacturers and holds them to as high of standards as Pure Essence Labs.
Pure Essence Labs' goal is to always produce and distribute the safest, highest quality nutritional supplements on the shelves. Good manufacturing training, practices, audits and inspections support that goal.
Pure Essence Labs' Founder
Jery Cochern has been involved in the natural health movement for over 30 years. In 1978, he joined a team of nutritionists to introduce spirulina, one of Nature's most wondrous whole foods, to this country. In 1979, he became national sales manager for AquaCulture Nutrition products, conducting educational seminars which made "green foods" a household word in the health food industry.
In 1980, Mr. Cochern left AquaCulture to found Rainbow Light Trading Company. In 1984, he founded Rainbow Light Nutritional Systems, Inc., which, under his leadership, became one of the health food industry's largest and most successful companies. As president of Rainbow Light, Mr. Cochern designed and developed the world's first food based vitamin and mineral formulations.
In 1990, he sold Rainbow Light to focus on research for natural cancer therapies. However, while studying Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda he discovered Superior Herbalism, the world's oldest tradition of dietary supplementation. While famous in Asia, this discipline was virtually unknown in the United States. After studying this discipline for several years, he founded Pure Essence Labs, knowing that Superior Herbalism would enhance his original concept of food based supplements. Today, Pure Essence is among the health food industry's fastest growing companies. Mr. Cochern is perhaps the only industry member to have founded two companies that remain in everyone's "top ten" list for quality supplements.
Mr. Cochern has appeared on countless radio programs. He has addressed large audiences of retailers, natural health practitioners and physicians at trade shows and educational events, as well as small to medium sized audiences of consumers at store sponsored events throughout the nation. Mr. Cochern is a Certified Nutritionist, a Certified Nutritional Consultant, and one of America's few Superior Herbalists. Hundreds of America's most popular and beneficial dietary supplements were developed by him, or are virtual duplicates of products he has made. He is widely renowned as one of the natural health movement's most holistic thinkers, most original product developers and most engaging speakers.
About Pure Essence Labs
The Whole Food Revolution
Pure Essence Laboratories, Inc., is the result of over 50 years experience in designing the world's finest dietary supplements. In 1980, Jery Cochern established a small company to distribute the SuperFood known as Spirulina. A few years later, he started a larger firm to offer not only pure Spirulina, but complex formulations that were based in Spirulina, Barley Grass and other SuperFoods. These products were the industry's first Food-Based supplements. Food-Based has stood the test of time because whole food nutrition makes a difference you can actually feel.
Whole food nutrition outperforms isolated nutrients for two reasons. First, whole foods contain nutrients in the exact forms and balance as they exist in nature. This gives cells the raw materials and catalysts they need to function. Second, whole foods are the only way to obtain the phyto-nutrients that protect cells from the damage caused by free radical oxidation, glycation, etc.
Pure Essence Lab's Approach
Pure Essence exists for only one reason. That is to use Nature as the model by which to build and maintain good health. Using Nature means understanding Nature. And, understanding Nature includes respecting time honored holistic medical systems.
There is no doubt modern science has wrought many wonders. It is important to take advantage of these advances. But, it is also important to keep them in perspective, and to use them with the wisdom of the age old traditions that are as true today as they have ever been.
At Pure Essence, they do just that. They join the best of the old with the best of the new, making it all available to you as the most holistic, and most effective dietary supplements and nutraceuticals ever offered. They hope you'll accept their invitation to become part of the Pure Essence family. And they promise that if you do, you'll be glad you did.
