Melatone

a higher amount of melatonin for intermediate needs

  • enhances sleep*
  • melatonin levels decrease as we age
  • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability

Product Information

Melatonin, the primary hormone of the pineal gland, acts as a powerful "chronobiotic," helping to maintain normal circadian rhythms.* In individuals having difficulty sleeping or with altered circadian rhythms, such as occur in jet lag and night shift work, supplementation with melatonin can help provide the resynchronization of those cycles, at amounts ranging from 0.3-8.0 mg.* Synthesis of melatonin from the amino acid tryptophan can be decreased by the aging process. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant.* Adequate melatonin levels have been reported to be a positive factor cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and bone health.*

Melatonin administration exerts a sedative-like effect in amounts of 0.3-5.0 mg.* When taken before onset of one's own melatonin secretion, even low amounts of melatonin can promote sleep.* Melatonin is thought to potentiate the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) via direct interaction with GABA receptors, thus resulting in relaxation.* Research indicates melatonin exerts sleep-promoting action by decreasing the time to fall asleep, improving the ability to stay asleep, and enhancing the depth of sleep.* Thorne's Melaton-3 supplies 3 mg of melatonin in each capsule. This potency is ideal for those individuals who may require a moderate amount of melatonin.*

  • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability

Product Information

Anyone who has pulled an all-night study session, or stayed up until the wee hours working on a project with a next-morning deadline, or driven long distances, knows the longer you go without sleep, the worse your ability to perform becomes, both mentally and physically. As with the need for food and water, humans need sleep. We spend one-third of our lives in a state of relative unconsciousness, but no one has figured out exactly why we need to sleep. Some sleep experts believe that while we sleep the brain is busy compiling what we learned during the day, creating new synapses. Other experts believe the brain spends its down-time recharging and relating to what we have learned during the day, making the new synapses created during waking hours more efficient. Either way, when it is difficult to get to sleep or stay asleep it can wreak havoc on our bodies and minds. So-called sleep debt is unhealthy; in fact, it is a risk factor for the good health of numerous systems in our bodies.

Supplementation with botanicals like valerian, rhodiola, passion flower, and others; relaxants like GABA and the sleep-inducing melatonin; and the use of neurotransmitter precursors to melatonin like L-tryptophan and 5-HTP, can be helpful in retraining the nervous system to produce restful and restorative sleep.*

Alone and in combination with hops (Humulus lupulus), valerian (Valeriana officinalis) promotes the ability to initiate sleep and enhance sleep quality.* Valerian stimulates GABA (a brain chemical that causes relaxation) release, which acts in combination with valerian's regulatory effect on the nervous system to cause relaxation.*

Hops and chamomile (Matricaria recutita) are indicated for promoting restful, restorative sleep and are also helpful for stress-related gastrointestinal upset.* Chamomile has been shown to reduce levels of ACTH, a hormone formed in the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete its hormones.* Chamomile also appears to increase the effects of GABA.* A similar calming effect is also attributed to passion flower (Passiflora incarnata), which is indicated for general nervous agitation, including inability to sleep due to an overactive mind.*

The restorative sleep attributes of Sedaplus are further strengthened by the central nervous system adaptogen Rhodiola rosea, which decreases physiological responses to stress and slows down the overactive mind for a restful sleep.*

Valerian extract (root) (Valeriana officinalis) 200 mg.
Chamomile extract (flower) (Matricaria recutita) 50 mg.

PharmaGABA

natural-source gamma-aminobutyric acid

Product Information

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major neurotransmitter widely distributed throughout the central nervous system. Because too much excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, sleeplessness, and spasmodic movements, this excitation needs to be balanced with inhibition. GABA the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain can provide this inhibition, acting like a "brake" during times of runaway stress.* In addition, studies also indicate GABA can promote relaxation and enhance sleep.*

It is thought that either low GABA levels or decreased GABA function in the brain may have an adverse impact on neurological health.*

The natural GABA in Thorne's PharmaGABA-250 is produced via a fermentation process that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii, the bacteria used to ferment vegetables in the preparation of the traditional Korean cabbage dish known as kimchi. Clinical studies show this natural form of GABA can increase the production of alpha-waves in the brain, creating a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus.* In contrast, the stress-related beta-waves in the brain are decreased.* In addition to changes in brain waves, natural PharmaGABA has been shown to produce relaxation, as evidenced by reduced pupil diameter, heart rate, and two natural markers of stress salivary cortisol and chromogranin A.* In a head-to-head, double-blind trial of natural PharmaGABA versus synthetic GABA, synthetic GABA did not demonstrate these positive effects.*

One Capsule Contains:
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)* 250 mg.

Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, MagnesiumCitrateLaurate.

*This product uses Pharma Foods International's Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (PharmaGABA®). PharmaGABA is a registered trademark of Pharma Foods International.
