What is Sleep Aid and How Can it Benefit you?
We all know how important it is to have adequate sleep to feel energized, invigorated, and refreshed. This is why Emrald Labs has created its newest product that will allow you to wake up every day feeling fresh and restored.
Sleep Aid contains essential ingredients that were carefully formulated and selected to provide you the physical and mental recovery you need for a productive day. These ingredients include:
Gamma-aminobutyric acid, also known as GABA, is a naturally-occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in the brain. In general, neurotransmitters function to pass or block chemical messages. GABA is the second type - an inhibitory neurotransmitter that hinders some signals and decreases nervous activity function.
On the surface, when GABA binds to the appropriate receptors, we feel calm. As a result, we become mellow, relaxed, and less anxious. GABA can even help counter feelings of fear and stress. Some research also shows that the amino acid can help prevent seizures, likely thanks to its effects on the nervous system.
Valerian Root Extract
Valerian root has been around for a long time and dates back as early as Ancient Rome. The herb is a common ingredient in numerous supplements on the market. Most notably, the root is said to help treat insomnia, stress, headaches, and nervousness. According to research, valerian root extract brings about these benefits by increasing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels in the brain.
Magnesium citrate is a salt component of citric acid. In a typical magnesium citrate formula, the ratio between magnesium salt and citric acid is 1:1. This compound is often used as an osmotic laxative, which means that it pulls water into the intestines. This helps soften and bulk up stool, making it easier to pass. Magnesium citrate also relaxes the bowels.
Ashwagandha is an ancient herb that grows in parts of Africa, the Middle East, and India. The herb is classified as an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body cope with stress. According to research, Ashwagandha offers numerous benefits for the body and brain. It can most notably work as a nootropic (boosting our cognitive function, memory, creativity, and motivation) and can help soothe symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Besides that, the herb appears to normalize blood sugar levels, help control inflammation, and provide a small boost in testosterone levels for men.
Bacopa, also known as Brahmi, is a plant that’s been used in traditional Indian medicine for a long time. According to some research, Bacopa boosts cognitive function by reducing anxiety. The plant extract also appears to improve memory and have antioxidant properties in the body. What’s most exciting about this extract is that it appears to deliver these benefits to young and healthy individuals, as well as the elderly.
L-theanine is a non-essential amino acid with various functions in the body. It is the primary active ingredient is green tea and has been shown to reduce anxiety and induce relaxation without drowsiness. Because of its effects, it appears to work particularly well with caffeine.
With a structure similar to glutamine (another amino acid), theanine appears to reach the brain following oral ingestion and influence its functions. Researchers speculate that theanine can also lead to better sleep quality, but it remains to be seen whether it helps with insomnia. Tea is the only source of meaningful theanine, so the next best option is to supplement it.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5HTP), also known as Oxitriptan, is an amino acid that is naturally produced by the body. This ingredient aids in the elevation of serotonin levels. Since serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the nervous system, it regulates one’s mood, behavior, appetite, sleep, and memory. By increasing the production of the chemical serotonin, 5-HTP can help with depression, anxiety, insomnia, and other conditions.
Research has also suggested that the intake of 5-HTP can aid in weight loss as it gives you the feeling of being full. Weight loss is found to be the cause of the synthesis of hunger-inducing hormones. Therefore, 5-HTP finds ways to counteract these hormones and suppress your appetite. Additionally, Oxitriptan inhibits calorie intake, which can help you with blood sugar regulation.
Sleep Aid delivers a range of incredible benefits for individuals who often perform strenuous activities like athletes, gym-goers, and those who are actively engaging their cognitive functions. This great tasting answer to higher quality sleep may be what's missing from your healthy lifestyle.
For better recovery, take one serving of Sleep Aid in 300 to 500ml water roughly 30 minutes before bed.
