Vitamin B6: One of the essential 11 vitamins necessary for optimum health & performance. Helps to facilitate cognitive functions through the creation & maintenance of neurotransmitters in the brain. Magnesium: One of the 24 essential dietary minerals & vitamins crucial for the healthy functioning of the human body. People with low magnesium often experience restless sleep, waking frequently during the night. Maintaining healthy magnesium levels often leads to deeper, more sound sleep. Zinc: An essential micronutrient & mineral considered one of the 24 micronutrients necessary for survival. Acts upon the central nervous system to help regulate sleep/wake cycles. L-Theanine: A non-essential, non-dietary, amino acid commonly found in tea. Helps to boost relaxation and promote sleep by boosting levels of GABA in the brain, lowering levels of excitatory neurons (stimulation), and enhances the presence of alpha brain waves. 5-HTP: Compound made naturally in the body, it helps the body create more serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating mood and sleep-wake cycles. Healthy levels of serotonin contribute to a positive mood and outlook and also promote restful sleep. GABA: is an amino acid produced naturally in the brain. GABA functions as a neurotransmitter, facilitating communication among brain cells. GABA’s big role in the body is to reduce the activity of neurons in the brain and central nervous system, which in turn has wide reaching effects including increased relaxation, reduced stress, a more calm, balanced mood, alleviation of pain, and increased sleep. Melatonin: Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally by the pineal gland in the brain. It works to promote sleep by helping to regulate the body’s bio clock and sleep-wake cycles. Research indicates that melatonin may shorten the time it takes to fall asleep, improve the quality of sleep, increase overall sleep amounts and reduce daytime sleepiness and fatigue. Kava: A herb native to the Southern Pacific islands that has been used for centuries in traditional medicines. It is often used as a hypnotic (sleep promoter), psychotropic, and anxiolytic (anxiety reducer). How Much Red Buddha Should I Take?
