What is ChillOut?
ChillOut contains L-theanine, a unique amino acid found in green tea that helps animals (including humans) to stay relaxed and calm.
ChillOut is a high quality, cost-effective, proven calming supplement for dogs and cats. It is a convenient and easy to use powder that you add to your pet's food. It has been laboratory tested, providing you safety and peace of mind.
Why ChillOut calms your dogs and cats
ChillOut promotes relaxation in pets exhibiting anxiety and nervousness due to a variety of causes such as travelling, vetting, showing, kennelling, unfamiliar people and during thunderstorms.
L-theanine is able to cross the blood brain barrier and modulate aspects of brain function. It increases activity in the alpha frequency band thereby inducing relaxation but not drowsiness. It modules the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain, increasing concentrations of serotonin (a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of well-being), dopamine (a neurotransmitter which plays a role in reward-motivated behaviour) and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA, the main neurotransmitter associated with inhibition of excitability in the central nervous system).
Clinical trials using ChillOut
Clinical trials have been conducted in dogs and cats and have shown that L-theanine is effective in reducing fearful behaviour. Behavioural studies in animals suggest that L-theanine may be associated with improvement in learning and memory.
How often to use ChillOut
ChillOut can be used daily, or occasionally at times of increased stress. ChillOut should be given 12 and 2 hours prior to a know event and every 6 hours during the event.
