L-Theanine: Amino acid that acts as a glutamate receptor antagonist (1).* L-theanine has been linked to the generation of alpha brain waves, indicating a state of relaxation (2).*
Melatonin: Hormone important for the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle (3).* Supplementation with melatonin has been shown to improve the onset of sleep (4).*
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) root extract (Valerenic acids 0.8%) (Micro-encapsulated): Both in vitro and in vivo studies demonstrate valerian extracts modulate GABA-A receptors (5-8).* Micro-encapsulation reduces valerian root odors.
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) leaf extract: Botanical shown to inhibit the enzyme GABA transaminase in vitro, which may increase levels of GABA
in the brain (9).* Utilizes proprietary extract extensively researched to reduce stress (10,11).
5-HTP (from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract): 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) crosses the blood-brain barrier and is a precursor to serotonin and
