- Somniphan is non habit forming, is free from side effects and can be used regularly to help encourage relaxation, support a healthy response to stress and anxiety and most importantly help one restore and maintain healthy sleep patterns*. Somniphan is suggested for: individuals who experience sleeplessness, individuals who experience frequent night wakings due to external, emotional factors, or for men who experience frequent night wakings due to prostate overactivity and frequent nighttime urination. Somniphan may also be helpful for individuals who experience mood swings or negative outlook and as a consequence have trouble sleeping*.
What is L-Tryptophan?L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that aids in protein synthesis and is a precursor to many compounds, including the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin, acting as a neurotransmitter in the Central Nervous System(CNS), affects hunger, mood, aggression and sleep. The body can also metabolize serotonin into melatonin. Low levels of serotonin, whether caused by improper uptake or metabolism, may negatively affect sleep. Supplementing with L-Tryptophan may help support healthy serotonin levels and consequently support healthy sleep*.
What is GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) ?GABA is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the body, which means that it regulates neuronal excitability. In so doing, GABA promotes relaxation and may dampen anxiety. It also has an analgesic effect. Sleeplessness has a variety of causes, stress, anxiety and pain being main contributors. As a supplement, GABA may help support restful sleep and support healthy mood*.
What is Melatonin?Melatonin is naturally secreted by the pineal gland. Melatonin supports the regulation of the body's day/night metabolic rates. Its secretion is synchronized with our biological clock which dictates the daily changes upon the body's metabolic activity. This is known as our circadian rhythms. One of Melatonin's most popular uses as a supplement is to help to restore proper sleep patterns. Melatonin also exhibits excellent antioxidant activity, it supports heart health and a healthy immune system*. Often when sleeplessness is caused by aberrations in one's sleeping schedule, for instance, jet lag, frequent nighttime urination (in men, due to enlarged prostate), or night-shift working hours, the body and mind may be so exhausted that an individual may have trouble falling and staying asleep. Melatonin can be helpful in aiding the body to resume a proper 7-8 hour sleep cycle. (Melatonin is sourced from bovine pineal gland)*.
