Sleep Well has been formulated to help:
- Improve sleep quality
- Promote muscle relaxation
- Relieve nervous tension and mild anxiety
- 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 GABA-A 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.
CPO™ Lavender Oil
Lavender oil has a long history of traditional use and has more recently been the subject of extensive clinical research. Evidence suggests that lavender oil has an anxiolytic effect (anxiety-relieving), and may improve quality and duration of sleep, as well as general mental and physical wellbeing. When studied comparatively against several commonly prescribed drugs including benzodiazepines and SSRIs; lavender oil delivered comparable or superior results. It is believed that lavender potentiates the expression of GABA-A and inhibits glutamate binding in the brain, resulting in a more relaxed state.
The CPO™ Lavender Oil used in Sleep Well has been produced using the patented delivery technology AquaCelle® for better absorption and results.
