Niacin (as nicotinamide) – (also known as vitamin B3) is one of the water-soluble B vitamins. It is naturally present in many foods, added to some food products and available as a dietary supplement. It contributes to normal psychological function, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, the maintenance of normal skin and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Pantothenic Acid – (also known as vitamin B5) is an essential nutrient that is naturally present in some foods, The main function of this water-soluble B vitamin is in the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA) and acyl carrier protein. A wide variety of plant and animal foods contain pantothenic acid. It contributes to normal energy- yielding metabolism, normal mental performance, normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters, and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamin B6 – is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in many foods, added to others and available as a dietary supplement. Vitamin B6 in coenzyme forms performs a wide variety of functions in the body and is extremely versatile, with involvement in more than 100 enzyme reactions, mostly concerned with protein metabolism. Vitamin B6 contributes to the normal function of the immune system, the regulation of hormonal activity, normal cysteine synthesis, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal homocysteine metabolism, normal protein and glycogen metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Biotin – is a water-soluble vitamin and also plays key roles in histone modifications, gene regulation (by modifying the activity of transcription factors) and cell signaling. Most biotin in foods is bound to protein, although some dietary biotin is in the free form. Biotin contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal psychological function, normal hair and skin and the maintenance of normal mucous membranes.
Magensium – an abundant mineral in the body. Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. Magnesium is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione. Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm. Magnesium contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, electrolyte balance, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal muscle function, normal protein synthesis, normal psychological function, the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, and it has a role in the process of cell division.
Ashwagandha – one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions, and is most well-known for its restorative benefits. In Sanskrit, ashwagandha means “the smell of a horse,” indicating that the herb imparts the vigour and strength of a stallion, and has traditionally been prescribed to help people strengthen their immune system after an illness. Ashwagandha is frequently referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties, even though botanically, ginseng and Ashwagandha are unrelated. Traditionally, it has been prescribed as a nerve tonic and adaptogen – an agent which helps the body adapt to various emotional and physical stressors. It is a highly effective remedy to help reduce stress and anxiety, by lowering cortisol levels and mimicking the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. It has classically been used in India for nearly 5,000 years for conditions such as failure to thrive in children, weakness and debility in old age, rheumatism, constipation, insomnia, nervous conditions, stress, goiter, joint inflammation, parasites, hormone balance and more.
Passion Flower – studies suggest it might help to relieve insomnia and anxiety. It appears to boost the level of gamma- aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. This compound lowers brain activity, which may help you to relax and sleep better.
German Chamomile Flower – used to calm frayed nerves, to treat stomach problems, to relieve muscle spasms and to treat skin conditions and mild infections. Traditionally, chamomile preparations such as tea and essential oil aromatherapy, have been used to treat insomnia and to induce sedation (calming effects). Chamomile is widely regarded as a mild tranquillizer and sleep-inducer.
Lemon Balm Leaves – has traditionally been used to improve mood and cognitive function, but it can also help to ease insomnia and other sleep disorders, as well as help to help relieve restlessness. It has many fundamental biological roles, and is essential for cardiovascular function and the development of skeletal muscle, the retina and the central nervous system. It is considered a conditional amino acid, because it can be manufactured by the body (as opposed to an essential amino acid, which can be provided only by diet or supplements).
Taurine – is one of many naturally-occurring compounds in the body that, like melatonin, increase in response to prolonged periods of being awake. Biochemically, taurine activates GABA(A) receptors in a brain region known to regulate sleep, and it is involved in the creation of the “sleep hormone” melatonin in the pineal gland. It can also help to resolve depression, which is often a factor that leads to insomnia and other sleep disorders.
L-Theanine – is an amino acid that is found in tea leaves. It can help to promote relaxation and facilitate sleep by contributing to a number of changes in the brain: Boosts levels of GABA and other calming brain chemicals L-theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness and sleep, as well as appetite, energy and other cognitive skills. Increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promotes relaxation and can help with sleep. Lowers levels of “excitatory” brain chemicals At the same time it is increasing chemicals that promote feelings of calm, L-theanine also reduces levels of chemicals in the brain that are linked to stress and anxiety. Enhances alpha brain waves Alpha brain waves are associated with a state of “wakeful relaxation.” That’s the state of mind you experience when meditating, being creative or letting your mind wander whilst daydreaming. L-theanine can help during sleep in a number of ways. L-theanine may help people fall asleep more quickly and easily at bedtime, thanks to the relaxation boost it delivers. Research also shows it can improve the quality of sleep – not by acting as a sedative, but by lowering anxiety and promoting relaxation. L-theanine is what’s known as an anxiolytic – it works to reduce anxiety. Some anxiolytics, such as valerian and hops, have sedative effects. L-theanine, on the other hand, promotes relaxation and stress reduction without sedating. L-theanine can help foster a state of calm, attentive wakefulness.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) – is an amino acid that the body naturally produces. It uses it to produce serotonin – a chemical messenger that sends signals between nerve cells. Low serotonin levels are associated with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight gain and other health problems. Therefore, increasing your body’s production of serotonin may have various benefits, such as: Helping with depression The effects of 5-HTP on symptoms of depression have been well studied. 5-HTP produces serotonin, which can be converted into the hormone melatonin. Melatonin plays an important role in regulating sleep. Its levels begin to rise in the evening to promote sleep and fall in the morning to help wake you up.
Lavender: – has traditionally been used as sleep enhancer. Lavender also lowers the heart rate and reduces anxiety. It works as an anxiolytic (an anxiety reliever) and as a sedative, to increase relaxation and calm, and help bring about sleep. It also interacts with the neurotransmitter GABA to help quiet the brain and nervous system activity, reducing agitation, anger, aggression and restlessness.
