Formula 303 Ingredients
Formula 303 is a special natural muscle relaxer. It is made with only three ingredients, and although that doesn’t sound like a lot, all three ingredients are effective and efficient. Formula 303 is made with valerian root, passiflora, and magnesium. All three work together to relieve muscle pain and spasms, and can help calm an anxious mind.
Benefits of Valerian Root in Formula 303
Valerian has been used for centuries, and in Latin valerian means to be healthy or strong. The valerian plant comes from Europe, Asia, South Africa, and since has been brought to North America. Valerian grows to be about four feet tall, and has oval shaped leaves. In the summer the plant blooms out from the top of its stems, and when found in nature valerian can be identified by its strong-natural odor.
Some of the first records of valerian root being used medicinally date back to ancient Greece. Hippocrates is believed to have used valerian root to help combat insomnia. The root has also been widely documented in Medieval, renaissance, and Anglo-Saxon medical records. During these times valerian root was used as a sedative, to promote sleep, to relieve nausea, and for treating gastrointestinal issues.
In contemporary times valerian root is used to help with muscle pains and spasms, anxiety, and insomnia. Valerian has found a wide use both historically and today, because it works well with the GABA receptors in the human brain. GABA stands for gamma-aminobutyric, and is an important inhibitory chemical. GABA helps to balance out the stimulation in the brain, and it is the natural way the brain tries to combat anxiety.
Benefits of Passiflora in Formula 303
Some might know passiflora as passion flower or even passiflora incarnata, but no matter what you call it the wonderful effects of this plant cannot be overlooked.
Passion flower was discovered in 1569 by Spanish explorers. The explorers were stunned by the beauty of the plant they had found. The flower itself has five white petals, and five sepals that can come in many different colors. The explorer’s first thoughts were that the flower resembled the crown of thorns worn by Christ, and they believed that it was validation for their explorations. The flower sits upon a long wood vine that can grow to over 30 feet. In appearance the passion flower is a tremendous plant.
When used medicinally passion flower is also a tremendous plant due to the benefits of passiflora.
The leaves, vines, and flowers of passion flower have historically been ground up to aid with a number of medical conditions. Historically passion flower was made into a tea. Today there are numerous ways to consume passiflora, including through the homeopathic remedy Formula 303.
Today passiflora is a great-all natural way to help with a number of ailments and conditions. Passiflora can be used to aid with the following conditions: excitability, anxiety disorders, gastrointestinal upset related to nervousness, and hysteria. Passion flower can also help with substance abuse by relieving symptoms of drug withdrawal.
Benefits of Magnesium in Formula 303
The final ingredient in Formula 303 is magnesium. Magnesium doesn’t have the rich history or the beautiful appearance of valerian or passion flower, but its affect on Formula 303 cannot be over looked.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals that you can consume on a daily basis. Magnesium enriches the effects of Formula 303 because it promotes proper nerve function. Without magnesium the nerve cells in the brain would be in constant stimulation. Magnesium helps bring balance to brain stimulation, and will leave the brain in a more relaxed state.
You could use valerian root, passion flower, and magnesium separately, but these three ingredients complement each other so well. The relief from muscle spasms and insomnia in valerian root, combined with the calming of anxiety from the passion flower, combined with the relaxing effect of magnesium makes for a great natural muscle relaxer and mind relaxer.
