Sleep Well has been formulated to help:
- Induce sleep
- Improve sleep quality
- Enhance physical and mental relaxation
- Relieve nervous tension
- Enhance brain health
- Support nutritional magnesium requirements
Magnesium is an essential mineral required in more than 300 different biochemical reactions throughout your body. Optimal levels are crucial for good health. It helps maintain your nervous system, muscle function, immune function, cardiovascular function, and blood sugar balance.
However, due to food processing practices, poor dietary choices and age-related factors, magnesium deficiency in adults is common. Magnesium deficiencies have been indicated in mental health disorders, cognitive impairment, and insomnia.
There are many different magnesium supplement forms available on the market with many poorly absorbed by your body. Organic compound forms of magnesium such as magnesium glycinates achieve superior absorption over cheaper inorganic compounds, such as magnesium oxide.
Sleep Well is formulated using the organic compound magnesium glycinate (also known as bisglycinate and diglycinate). Magnesium glycinate offers superior magnesium bioavailability and bowel tolerability, with the added benefits of glycine.
Glycine is both an amino acid and neurotransmitter. Glycine may help calm an over-excited nervous system by modulating nerve cell NMDA receptor sites, which help mediate nervous system responses. Studies have demonstrated glycine’s ability to assist people with sleep onset and to spend more time in the restorative REM sleep stage.
The high dose of superior organic form magnesium glycinate in Sleep Well promotes healthy sleep patterns and muscle relaxation, while also supporting your nutritional magnesium requirements and the health of your nervous and immune systems.
Ziziphus Jujuba (Ziziphus)
Ziziphus Jujuba is a traditional herbal medicine with anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) and sedative properties, that is widely used in the treatment of insomnia. Research into the herb’s mechanism of action demonstrates an ability to target the GABAergic system. GABA is your chief inhibitory neurotransmitter, which helps balance out the effects of your other excitatory neurotransmitters. Zizyphus is thought to activate GABAA receptors, increasing levels of glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) – the crucial enzyme required in the conversion of glutamate into GABA.
Eschscholzia Californica (California poppy)
The golden-orange California poppy is the official state flower of California. Medicinally, it is known for its anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving), sedative, and analgesic properties. The plant was commonly used by Native Americans and Hispanic societies for mood disorders, pain, and insomnia. Today, it is regarded as a nerve tonic. Through its many isoquinoline alkaloids, it is thought to interact with opioid receptors and your GABA and serotonin neurotransmitters.
Passiflora Incarnata (Passionflower)
Passionflower is a popular traditional herbal medicine with anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) and sedative properties. Research has determined that much of the herb’s anxiolytic and sedative effects are mediated via modulation of the GABA system, with an affinity to GABAA and GABAB receptors.
Vitamin B6 (bio-activated Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate)
Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (P5P) is the bio-activated form of vitamin B6. It is an essential cofactor in the conversion process of Glutamine to GABA via enzyme glutamate decarboxylase (GAD). P5P is also a cofactor in the conversion of 5-HTP to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which can then be converted to melatonin in your pineal gland. P5P is therefore biochemically crucial in promoting healthy sleep patterns.
