This is what makes you pass out right after that big thanksgiving turkey dinner. It’s an essential amino acid and more importantly a precursor to serotonin which your body then converts into melatonin. The 500mg of L-tryptophan per serving is enough to allow your body to produce as much melatonin as it needs to stay asleep all night long.
“One gram of L-tryptophan significantly reduced sleep latency: the lower doses produced a trend in the same direction. Stage IV sleep was significantly increased by 1/4 g of L-tryptophan.”
“Dietary tryptophan and its metabolites seem to have the potential to contribute to the therapy of autism, cardiovascular disease, cognitive function, chronic kidney disease, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, sleep, social function, and microbial infections.”
Glycine is the main compound in bone broth which provides so many benefits. From repairing gut junctions, helping with glutathione production and finally reducing core body temperature to maximize sleep quality. Glycine is a critical amino acid missing from so many of our diets. Our glycine is not from animals and therefore the slumber powder is vegan. Glycine is well studied and established for its benefits from maximizing sleep quality to increasing feelings of wakefulness during the day, it’s never a bad time for some bone broth or glycine.
The Sleep-Promoting and Hypothermic Effects of Glycine are Mediated by NMDA Receptors in the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus
“The use of glycine as a therapeutic option for improving sleep quality is a novel and safe approach”
The Effects of Glycine on Subjective Daytime Performance in Partially Sleep-Restricted Healthy Volunteers
“In subjects given glycine, the VAS data showed a significant reduction in fatigue and a tendency toward reduced sleepiness.”
“The decline in the core body temperature might be a mechanism underlying glycine’s effect on sleep, as the onset of sleep is known to involve a decrease in the core body temperature.”
“Glycine is very effective in improving the health and supports the growth and well-being of humans and animals. There are overwhelming reports supporting the role of supplementary glycine in prevention of many diseases and disorders including cancer. Dietary supplementation of proper dose of glycine is effectual in treating metabolic disorders in patients with cardiovascular diseases, several inflammatory diseases, obesity, cancers, and diabetes. Glycine also has the property to enhance the quality of sleep and neurological functions.”
Phosphotidylserine is a component of sunflower lecithin. It is critical for neurological function and also helps with the endocrine system. We include it for its ability to blunt cortisol. Our bodies spike our cortisol in the morning in order to wake us up. Sometimes we are chronically stressed and therefore have elevated cortisol levels all the time, this can cause us to sleep lightly or wake up periodically throughout the night. Phosphotidylserine can help with elevated cortisol related sleep issues.
“It supports human cognitive functions, including the formation of short-term memory, the consolidation of long-term memory, the ability to create new memories, the ability to retrieve memories, the ability to learn and recall information, the ability to focus attention and concentrate, the ability to reason and solve problems, language skills, and the ability to communicate.”
“PS supplementation promotes a desired hormonal status for athletes by blunting increases in cortisol levels.”
Magnesium is critical for over 400 physiological functions. It also relaxes muscles, helps reduce stress and can help with muscle recovery as well. Magnesium glycinate is the best absorbed version of magnesium.
The effect of magnesium supplementation on primary insomnia in elderly: A double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial
“Supplementation of magnesium appears to improve subjective measures of insomnia such as ISI score, sleep efficiency, sleep time and sleep onset latency, early morning awakening, and likewise, insomnia objective measures such as concentration of serum renin, melatonin, and serum cortisol, in elderly people.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3703169/
Magnesium Intake and Sleep Disorder Symptoms: Findings from the Jiangsu Nutrition Study of Chinese Adults at Five-Year Follow-Up
“Magnesium, a cofactor involved in more than 300 enzyme systems, regulates diverse biochemical reactions in the body . Recently, magnesium has also been found to regulate cellular timekeeping in both animal and plant cells , thus it is beneficial to maintain the normal circadian rhythms and ensure a quality sleep in humans.”
Tart Cherry Powder
“…has modest beneficial effects on sleep in older adults with insomnia with effect sizes equal to or exceeding those observed in studies of valerian and in some, but not all, studies of melatonin, the two most studied natural products for insomnia.”
“Cherry juice increased sleep time and sleep efficiency. Cherry juice procyanidin B-2 inhibited IDO, increased tryptophan availability, reduced inflammation and may be partially responsible for improvement in insomnia.”
“Total melatonin content was significantly elevated (P < 0.05) in the cherry juice group, whilst no differences were shown between baseline and placebo trials. There were significant increases in time in bed, total sleep time and sleep efficiency total.”
“Total sleep time and sleep efficiency were significantly increased (13.4% and 5.41%, respectively). Kiwifruit consumption may improve sleep onset, duration, and efficiency in adults with self-reported sleep disturbances.”
