Physiological Effects of Facial Blushing, Uncontrolled Blushing, Autonomic Nerves, Hypothalamus Region, Brain, Sympathetic, Parasympathetic, Nervous System
The physiological effects of facial blushing stem from the autonomic nerves found in the hypothalamus region of the brain. These are known as the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, depending on their function. Hyperactivity of the sympathetic system occurs in many areas of the body at the same time. The effects include increased heart rate, blood pressure, and metabolic rate. Within the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems lie the functions that lead to increased blood flow to the face and neck region of the body.
Blushing: An Involuntary Emotional Response
It is important to understand that involuntary emotions control both the sympathetic and parasympathetic centers of the brain, thus directly affecting areas of the body. When blushing occurs it is most likely the result of your emotions taking over, instantaneously triggering the autonomic nervous system response. What was once thought of as “fight or flight” is now being re-focused to create the sensation of facial blushing.
Fight Blushing With the Body’s Own Building Blocks
Eredicane’s main ingredient, GABA, is one of the nine essential amino acids found in the brain. GABA inhibits neurons in the cells from firing, thus diminishing the excitatory messages reaching the frontal cortex of the brain.*
In essence, GABA lowers the excitatory level of the cell that is about to receive the incoming information, therefore helping to prevent the onset of the sensation that causes blushing.
For more information about how GABA and the other ingredients in Eredicane work together to help reduce uncontrolled blushing, see below.
Eredicane's Proprietary Blend
Popularly referred to as the body’s natural tranquilizer, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid produced in the brain. It acts as a neurotransmitter – a chemical that fosters communication etween nerve cells – and helps keep stress-related nerve impulses at bay.
Normally the brain pumps out all the GABA we need. GABA levels may become depleted, however, as a result of poor diet, exposure to environmental toxins or other factors. Too little of this important compound may result in anxiety, irritability, insomnia, or depression.
Magnesium is often called the anti-stress mineralbecuase of its calming effect.
Magnesium’s soothing properties are notably effective in enabling restful sleep or calming people with a hyperactive nervous system, which may be manifested in a short temper or agitation.
Healers have used Passion Flower as a natural remedy for anxiety and insomnia for centuries.
Recent research verifies that standardized Passion Flower extract reduces anxiety and promotes a positive outlook. Passion Flower may also reduce anxiety-related discomfort caused by opiate and sedative withdrawal.
Standardized Valerian extract, a safe and effective natural sedative, calms both mind and body. Clinical research demonstrates that Valerian effectively relieves anxiety-related insomnia, making it comparable to some prescription drugs that treat anxiety disorders.
Unlike many prescription drugs, however, Valerian is not addictive or habit-forming when taken in recommended doses.
Vitamin B6 is essential for good health because it performs a variety of functions in the body and takes part in many enzyme reactions important for the brain and nervous system.
Vitamin B-6 is necessary for the synthesis and breakdown of amino acids, aids in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, maintains the central nervous system, and helps form antibodies.
Glycine is the simplest of the twenty different amino acids used as building blocks to make the body’s proteins. It works in concert with glutamine, a substance that plays a major role in brain function.
Glycine has shown promise as an aid in the treatment of phobias as well as enhancing mental function.
Glutamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter and plays a pivotal role in balancing the brain’s nitrogen levels. It has been used therapeutically for mild depression and to reduce anxiety.
Glutamine is very important in the functioning of the metabolism and muscle maintenance.
Primula Officinalis is a flower essence that relieves anxiety and soothes the body and mind. It provides comfort and alleviates the feeling of vulnerability.
Taurine is a non-essential sulfur-containing amino acid that functions with glycine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as a neuroinhibitory transmitter. It may be needed for the proper development and maintenance of the central nervous system.
