Sleep Support Adults
In the sleep bundle I selected options that work on different parts of the sleep cycle.
How Melatonin Works
Melatonin is a hormone made by the body from serotonin. Melatonin acts on receptors in your body to encourage sleep and is also a pivotal antioxidant. This product helps those who have a problem with falling asleep. It is not a substitute for poor sleeping habits.
How Magnesium Works
Magnesium is a key nutrient for brain and neurologic health. Majority of kids and adults are deficient in this mineral due to issues with global farming practices. First, magnesium regulates neurotransmitters, which send signals throughout the nervous system and brain. It also regulates the hormone melatonin, which guides sleep-wake cycles in your body. Second, this mineral binds to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors assisting in calming the central nervous system. Magnesium deficiency manifests in many as issues with staying asleep.
How GABA Works
Liposomal GABA contains a blend of GABA and L-theanine to support mental calm and a healthy response to stress. GABA is a neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain. Low levels of GABA may be linked to anxiety and sleep difficulties. L-theanine is an amino acid. The human body does not produce this compound, and it is not essential for humans. Green tea, black tea, and certain types of mushroom naturally contain L-theanine. L-theanine may affect the levels of certain chemicals in the brain. Several studies have suggested that L-theanine could help people relax before bedtime, get to sleep more easily, and sleep more deeply. The liposomal formulation enhances absorption.
