Thrivous designed Serenity for nightly use to promote calm and sleep, and to improve next-day focus. Our formula is guided by science, which enables us to identify nootropic ingredients with the greatest potential to promote mental performance beyond what can be achieved through traditional lifestyle choices alone.
Guided by Science
Serenity contains ingredients at concentrations and amounts based on high levels of evidence for notable effect from peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies on humans.
We make Serenity from minerals and amino acids in the human diet, and from bioidentical hormones. It does not contain substances derived from animals. All ingredients and capsules are vegan.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found in plant and fungal species. Supplementation may improve relaxation.
Magnesium Glycinate is an essential dietary mineral reacted with an amino acid. Supplementation may promote calm and improve sleep quality.
Melatonin is a bioidentical hormone, also naturally produced in most forms of life. Supplementation may promote sleep.
Thrivous publishes the Serenity formula openly and completely, and strives to improve the formula continuously. This contrasts sharply with the practices of many vendors, who hide their product formulas behind proprietary blends.
Serenity has an open-source formula that identifies all ingredients and their dosages. This is the only way to know what and how much you are using, which is essential to good decisions.
Because science is never finished, we continuously monitor and review new studies, consult with our advisor board of physicians and scientists, and update the Serenity formula accordingly.
|Magnesium (from Magnesium Glycinate)||200 mg|
Thrivous publishes a certificate of analysis and quality for Serenity, sharing all test results from our suppliers and manufacturers. This is exceptional among vendors, who often withhold test results or make them difficult to find.
Our suppliers subject each ingredient to stringent quality testing, including identity, potency, microbial, heavy metals, and other testing as appropriate prior to release for manufacturing.
Our manufacturers follow strict GMP regulation from the FDA in audited and certified facilities. They monitor production and test finished product to ensure quality prior to release for shipping.
