Product Overview

Key Ingredients:

L-Theanine: Amino acid that acts as a glutamate receptor antagonist (1). L-theanine has been linked to the generation of alpha brain waves, indicating a state of relaxation (2).

Melatonin: Hormone important for the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle (3). Supplementation with melatonin has been shown to improve the onset of sleep (4).

Valerian (Valeriana Oficinalis) root extract (Valerenic acids 0.8%) (Micro-encapsulated): Both in vitro and in vivo studies demonstrate valerian extracts modulate GABA-A receptors (5-8). Micro-encapsulation reduces valerian root odors.

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) leaf extract: Botanical shown to inhibit the enzyme GABA transaminase in vitro, which may increase levels of GABA in the brain (9).* Utilizes proprietary extract extensively researched to reduce stress (10,11).

5-HTP (from Griffonia Simplicifolia seed extract): 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) crosses the blood-brain barrier and is a precursor to serotonin and melatonin(12). Serotonin is important for regulating mood and sleep-wake function (13).
