If you’re looking for a supplement that can relax you without making you feel drugged while increasing mental focus, then Picamilon is what you’re looking for. Picamilon’s effects can be felt quickly and last for up to six hours. Consistent use can show a noticeable improvement in concentration and an increase in energy and endurance.

How does it work?
Picamilon is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it splits into GABA and niacin. The GABA then stimulates GABA receptors producing a calming effect. GABA is the main inhibiting neurotransmitter that regulates neuronal excitability. The niacin causes vasodilation, or a widening of the blood vessels, which can lead to the relief of headaches and lower the blood pressure.

Unlike caffeine and other stimulants, which can help you focus but give you the jitters, Picamilon promotes relaxation.

NMI Reports 2008 Health & Wellness Industry Sales at More Than $112 Billion

May 21, 2009

Natural Marketing Institute (NMI) announced today that retail sales within the U.S. consumer packaged goods health and wellness industry reached more than $112 billion in 2008, representing growth of 9% over 2007.

In 2008, consumer spending on Vitamins, Minerals, Herbal & Dietary Supplements reached $23.3 billion, which is a 7% increase from 2007.

According to NMI President Maryellen Molyneaux, “NMI research clearly shows that the current economic downturn is changing consumer behavior on many levels, including spending related to health and wellness. So while sales in each category continue to grow, consumers are becoming more discerning and are looking for real value in their purchases and not just the perceived value. This shift in behavior will impact manufacturers and retailers not just short-term but also in the future.”
