The first stage in NuCalm is to deliver naturally relaxing nutrients to your body, which can be done either with a chewable supplement or a skin cream. We understand that many people choose NuCalm specifically to avoid drugs and chemicals, so they might be concerned about the source of our ingredients. Here are some of the ingredients and where they come from to put your mind at ease.


L-theanine is an amino acid that promotes alpha wave production and reduces stress. It’s found naturally in green tea, and that’s where we get it from, organic green tea.

Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate

Casein tryptic hydrolysate can have a relaxing effect on your brain similar to benzodiazepines, which are commonly used in sedation dentistry. Our casein tryptic hydrolysate is derived from the milk of cows that have never been treated with hormones and have never been fed GMOs or animal-derived products.


Glycine is a small amino acid that has been proven to help with sleep as well as treating schizophrenia. We get our glycine from a vegetarian source that doesn’t have yeast, dairy, egg, salt, sugar, wheat, preservatives, coloring, or flavoring.


Taurine is a powerful anti-stress nutrient. Our taurine is created with the fermentation of non-animal products.

Gamma-aminobutyric Acid (GABA)

GABA is possibly the most important ingredient in our relaxation formula. It’s an amino acid that regulates sleep, and it can help you get relaxed. We derive our GABA from rice embryos, so it’s completely vegetarian.

A Natural Approach to Relaxation

If you are having difficulty getting all the dental care you need or desire because of anxiety, many dentists will only offer you the option of sedation dentistry, a chemical approach that can significantly impact your cognitive abilities, including your memory of what happened. This is okay for some people, but for others, it just seems unacceptable.

That’s why NuCalm dentists are proud to offer another option that allows you to experience high levels of relaxation without any kind of drug. If you wanted to, you could get all these components by eating the right foods, but we do you the favor of collecting and concentrating them so you experience the proper relaxation effect.
