NightRest combines the powerful properties of melatonin and GABA with key amino acids and soothing herbs. This uniquely comprehensive combination utilizes cutting-edge technology and traditional herbalism to create a potent and relaxing nighttime formula.* People try all kinds of things, from warm drinks to soothing music, to help them get a restful night's sleep. Few, however, are aware of the need to support the multiple body systems related to sleep and relaxation. NightRest addresses this need by providing herbs and nutrients important for neuro-inhibitory transmitters, hormonal function and the musculoskeletal system.
The brain communicates through the use of neurotransmitters, which can create different states of mind, such as relaxation. GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter, which can prevent the brain from being over loaded by stimuli. Thus GABA is associated with mental states of calm and serenity, and promotes muscle relaxation. The amino acid taurine acts to control the excitability of neurons in the brain.
Melatonin is a neurohormone produced by the pineal gland. Melatonin plays a crucial role in maintaining our circadian rhythms, the body's own inner time-keeping mechanism. This promotes rest and relaxation, and maintains healthy sleep-wake cycles. Melatonin is also a potent antioxidant.
Muscular relaxation can have an immediate soothing effect, on the mind as well as the body. Magnesium promotes healthy nerve function and plays a key role in the relaxation of muscles. Taurine helps support the uptake of calcium, which is also involved in neuromuscular function.
