Insomnix Sleep Formula
Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland that sets the circadian rhythm, (wake-sleep cycles). Melatonin diminishes with age, and a replacement has been shown to improve sleep by helping to re-establish the normal sleep pattern.
L-Theanine. An extract from tea. Historically, some people have found drinking tea to have a calming effect. Since tea has caffeine, this does not make sense at first glance, however, research has revealed that tea also contains L-Theanine which has been shown to have an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect. Theanine is structurally similar to the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, and, binds to glutamate receptors, though with much lower affinity in comparison. It acts as an antagonist of the receptor. It inhibits glutamine transporters and glutamate transporters, and thus blocks the reuptake of glutamine and glutamate. It has been shown to increase alpha wave activity in the brain. By relieving anxiety, L-Theanine promotes restful sleep by helping to alleviate the racing of thoughts that plague so many individuals who experience sleep difficulties.
Phenibut is a tranquilizing nootropic agent developed by the Russian space program as a safer alternative to benzodiazepines like Valium. Its chemical structure and pharmacological effects are similar to the prescription medication Baclofen but less potent.
Lithium Orotate. Lithium is an important trace mineral. It is used therapeutically to treat obsessive thoughts and to control mood swings. In the orotate form, it is effective at much lower doses, and people don’t seem to develop a tolerance to it as can happen with other sedating and/or tranquilizing agents. Lithium does not induce sleep directly. It works primarily by acting as an anti-anxiety agent. Upon ingestion, lithium becomes widely distributed in the central nervous system and interacts with a number of neurotransmitters and receptors, decreasing norepinephrine (noradrenaline) release and increasing serotonin synthesis.
