Sleep Night



Neurotransmitters are natural chemical messengers in the nervous system
that send signals from one nerve cell across a synapse to another nerve cell or
target organ. Serotonin plays a role in sleep, mood, intestinal function, pain
control, and inflammation. Dopamine plays a role in cognitive function,
memory, learning, and pleasure. In our bodies, dopamine is released as a
result of rewarding experiences. Certain nutrients and amino acids may help
to balance levels of neurotransmitters by providing co-factors that assist in
the body’s ability to manufacture neurotransmitters.*
About the Ingredients
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as
a neurotransmitter in your brain. Neurotransmitters function as chemical
messengers. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it
blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous
system. When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA
receptor, it produces a calming eect. This can help with feelings of anxiety,
stress, and fear. It may also help to prevent seizures. As a result of these
properties, GABA has also become a popular supplement in recent years. This
is partly because it isn’t available from many food sources.
L-Taurine- is an essential amino acid is a GABA-receptor agonist, meaning it
produces a GABA-like eect in the body. GABA is a sedating, inhibitory
neurotransmitter. In animal studies, application of taurine with GABA, or
taurine with glycine produced stronger eects than taking either glycine or
GABA alone.(iv) Taurine is can be used to enhance sleep quality.(v)
Suntheanine® (L-Theanine) stimulates activity in the brain known as alpha waves,
which are associated with a relaxed but alert mental state. Human clinical
trials have shown Suntheanine® to promote an alert state of relaxation
without drowsiness, as indicated by an increase in Alpha brain waves, and a
decrease in Beta brain waves. Suntheanine® is protected by over 40 U.S. and
international patents for its various physiological ecacies and L-isomer
specic production processes.
L-Glycine- is a non-essential amino acid. It has been used to protect brain cells
after ischemic stroke. Glycine is also thought to promote a sense of well-being
and reduce anxiety. Research has shown that glycine can subjectively and
objectively improve sleep quality.(vi) In a study where people’s sleep was
restricted, glycine also reduced daytime sleepiness.(vii)
5-HTP- stands for 5- hydroxytryptophan, and is used by the body to make
serotonin. 5-HTP is not found in food sources, the body manufactures 5-HTP
from tryptophan, an amino acid found in dietary protein. Many conditions
have been shown by studies to be helped by 5-HTP supplementation,
including insomnia, depression, bromyalgia, obesity (by reducing appetite),
and headaches. 5-HTP should always be used under the supervision of a
healthcare practitioner. In addition, the lowest possible dose should be used
rst and the dose should be titrated up slowly. 5-HTP should not be taken
concurrently with pharmaceutical anti-depressants unless otherwise directed
by your healthcare practitioner.
Vitamin B-5 (D-Calcium pantothenate)- is a water-soluble B vitamin with numerous
biological roles. Vitamin B-5 is used by the body to manufacture, among other
things, coenzyme A which is an important compound for energy metabolism
and the production of fatty acids, cholesterol, and the neurotransmitter
acetylcholine. D-Calcium pantothenate is the preferred, metabolically active
form of B-5 used in higher quality nutritional supplements.

Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxal 5-phosphate)- is a water-soluble B vitamin
that performs many functions in the body. B-6 – dependent enzymes
assist in the biosynthesis of the important neurotransmitters GABA,
dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Pyridoxal
5-phosphate is the preferred, metabolically active form of B-6 used
in higher quality nutritional supplements.
Melatonin- is a hormone naturally produced by the body to regulate
circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle). Melatonin secretion may be
disrupted by aging, hormonal changes, and night-time exposure to
light, among other things. Melatonin supplements are well known
for their ability to combat insomnia. (viii)
