Analysis of Ingredients
Seredyn contains the following active ingredients (click the name of the ingredients to read a more detailed description of them):
|L-Theanine||L-thenanine is an amino acid found in green tea and in some mushrooms. A Japanese study has suggested that the oral intake of l-theanine provides anti-stress benefits by inhibiting cortical neuron excitation. L-theanine allows for enhanced awareness and mental clarity without drowsiness or agitation.|
|Passionflower||Passiflora incarnata is a species of passionflower with anxiolytic and sedative properties. It is hypothesized to work via modulation of the GABA system.|
|Valerian||Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is a perennial herb with anxiolytic and sedative properties. Like certain other medicinal herbs, it is hypothesized to act via the GABA receptor system.|
|Niacinamide||Niacinamide is a chemical variant of Vitamin B3, also known as niacin. The difference between the two is that niacinamide does not have the toxicity of niacin. It has been theorized to have a similar mechanism of action as benzodiazepines without the related side effects.|
|Magnesium Taurinate||There isn’t a lot of research on the Internet pertaining to magnesium taurinate. There is even a general lack of scientific literature on the subject. However, the European Food Safety Authority released a document which states that magnesium taurinate is not a safety concern and is a valid source of magnesium supplementation.|

Given the lack of high-quality scientific studies pertaining directly to Seredyn, it is not possible to say whether or not the supplement is effective. However, we will examine customer reviews of Seredyn in this article in order to provide you with a rough approximation of its efficacy.
The manufacturer of Seredyn claims that the side effects related to the product are mild and transitory. Here are the side effects the manufacturer lists:

In this section, we will examine the customer reviews on Amazon to acquire a non-scientific sense of the efficacy and quality of the product.
A pervasive problem on Amazon is the widespread use of paid reviews. Given the low quality of the high rating reviews on Seredyn, it is difficult to ascertain the true quality of the product. Taken in aggregate, the customer review data indicates that Seredyn may have an anxiolytic benefit.
