Physiology of Extra Strength Zzz Sleep™

Melatoninis a hormone made by the pineal gland, a small gland in the brain. Melatonin helps control your sleep and wake cycles. Very small amounts of it are found in foods such as meats, grains, fruits, and vegetables. Supplementation may be necessary when insomnia is experience.

L-Theanine: is a non-essential amino acid. Non-essential amino acids are those amino acids that are produced by the body naturally and very important in regulating different biochemical reactions in the body including increasing serotonin.  When serotonin decreases in the brain, it can result in an increase in stress and anxiety, which can lead to insomnia.  L-theanine helps increase serotonin naturally in the brain, and can help calm the mind.

L-Tryptophanis considered an essential amino acid because our bodies can't make it. It is important for the development and functioning of many organs in the body. After absorbing L-tryptophan from food, our bodies convert it to 5-HTP (5-hyrdoxytryptophan), and then to serotonin.  The short-term increase 5-HTP can cause sleepiness.  People that have a big thanksgiving turkey dinner often have a short burst of L-tryptophan and can feel sleepy.

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid): is a neurotransmitter that dampens nerve activity. Healthy people with insomnia often have reduced levels of GABA in the brain. Sleeping pills such as zolpidem (Ambien) work by improving the ability of GABA to bind to receptors in the brain; the drugs don't contain GABA itself.  Natural GABA powder comes from foods such as oolong tea, grilled shrimp, brown rice, cherry tomatoes, and hummus etc.  Increasing the amount of GABA in ones diet, especially at night time, helps induce a drowsy feeling.
