GABA is a neurotransmitter that calms the brain. Low GABA levels or decreased GABA function can lead to several psychiatric or neurological disorders, including insomnia, depression and epilepsy. Standard GABA does not cross the blood brain barrier, which is why Get Sleeping uses PharmaGABA®, which readily crosses the blood brain barrier and is detectable within 5 to 30 minutes after consumption. PharmaGABA has also been shown to be effective in reducing the stress that is associated with quitting smoking.
GASTRODIN exhibits multifactorial properties which include balancing neurotransmitters, improving blood flow and increasing insulin sensitivity. Gastrodin is beneficial to people who suffer from migraine headaches. Studies show that gastrodin can increase GABA levels by 34%, and dramatically reduces anxiety.
TRYPTOPHAN is converted in the body to serotonin, which helps calm and relax the brain. The two main biomolecules in the normal production of sleep, are serotonin and melatonin. Both of these biomolecules are made from tryptophan.
People in human studies who supplemented with tryptophan demonstrated impressive results with those with mild insomnia, and in those with above average time to fall asleep. Tryptophan reduces biochemical markers of stress, especially cortisol, which can have many deleterious effects on the human body.
L-THEANINE is an amino acid found in green tea. L-theanine is very effective in relieving stress and anxiety, and has a calming effect on the brain without a sedative effect. L-theanine has a calming effect on the brain by stimulating the production of GABA.
In a double-blind head to head study which compared the effectiveness of L-theanine with xanax. The 16 participants were given either 1 mg of Xanax, a higher than normal dosage, or 200 mg. Of L-theanine, or placebo, the results were remarkable. Only those on L-theanine experienced immediate tranquility.
LEMON BALM has as long been known to relieve anxiety, promote sleep and soothe agitation. Lemon balm extracts bind to receptor sites on cells that trigger relaxation and reduce anxiety. Lemon balm boosts levels of GABA by inhibiting the enzyme that degrades GABA, the calming neurotransmitter.
VALERIAN ROOT can help to improve sleep quality even with people who have restless leg syndrome. It acts as a sedative making it easier to fall asleep and go into deeper sleep cycles. Valerian enhances the quality of sleep allowing you to feel more refreshed and rested in the morning. Valerian is regarded by many as the most effective natural insomnia therapy that you can find.
HOPS is an aromatic herb used in the brewing of beer to improve its taste and to preserve it. Hops contains a number of health benefits, which include reducing anxiety and promoting sleep. Positive monographs have been published by the German Commission E and the Scientific Committee of European experts of the European Scientific co-operative of Phototherapy.
The German Commission E has authorized the use of hops for mood disorders, anxiety, as well as sleep disorders. It has been demonstrated that hops extract has important effects on circadian rhythms that regulate sleep. It also effects serotonin and melatonin.
MELATONIN is a multifaceted hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain which helps set the brain’s biological clock and restore balance to the biological cycles of the body. Melatonin easily diffuses into all cells and readily crosses the blood brain barrier.
Melatonin promotes healthy sleep patterns in people regardless of the cause of insomnia. Reviewing 15 studies of sleep in healthy adults, scientists noted that melatonin significantly reduced sleep latency (the amount of time it takes to fall asleep), while boosting sleep efficiency (the percentage of time spent sleeping in bed) AND increasing total sleep duration.
