Sleep Well™ has been formulated to help:
- Improve sleep quality
- Promote muscle relaxation
- Relieve nervous tension and mild anxiety
- Support nutritional magnesium requirements
Piper Methysticum (Noble Kava)
Kava has been used traditionally in both Western and Pacific Islander Medicine as a restorative sleep aid and as a natural relaxant for the nervous system. Kava is an ideal choice for sleep that is disturbed due to musculoskeletal pain, high stress or anxious states. In the central nervous system, research suggests that Kava appears to exert its actions by interacting with GABA-ergic, glutamatergic and other transmission pathways and appears to have an inhibitory effect on monoamine oxidase B.
Ziziphus Jujuba (Ziziphus)
Ziziphus Jujuba is a traditional herbal medicine with anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) and sedative properties that is widely used in treating 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 to convert 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 neurotransmitters such as GABA.
Magnesium AAC & Glycinate
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 amino acid chelates (AAC) and glycinates achieve superior absorption over cheaper inorganic compounds, such as magnesium oxide.
Sleep Well™ is formulated using a blend of magnesium amino acid chelate and 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 a 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 magnesium in Sleep Well™ helps promotes healthy sleep patterns and muscle relaxation while also supporting your nutritional magnesium requirements and the health of your nervous and immune systems.
