Whole Tart Cherry Extract Benefits
Consumption of tart cherries (powdered, capsules, or concentrate) may decrease markers for oxidative stress in 8/10 studies, inflammation in 11/16, exercise-induced muscle soreness in 8/9, blood pressure in 5/7, arthritis in 5/5, and improved sleep in 4/4 studies using meta analysis review.
Tart cherries contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytochemicals that may influence sleep by different cytokine release mechanisms associated with the sleep-wake cycle.
It is suggested in scientific literature that supplementation of 3000mg or more of the amino acid L-Glycine may help to lower core body temperature – an essential step for priming the body for deep sleep, promoting recovery, and much more. What’s best is it is also suggested that L-Glycine may also promote these steps even without altering sleep architecture.
Magnesium Glycinate Benefits
Magnesium is an overlooked essential mineral needed by the body, and is often a missing mineral in modern diets. Major benefits of optimal magnesium levels in the body include but are not limited to: reduced inflammation, increased deep sleep duration, muscle health, facilitates bone mineral density, and allows the brain to fire optimally.
Magnesium Glycinate in particular is a form of magnesium associated most with being most beneficial for bodily functions such as muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, reducing anxiety, and promoting melatonin production in the body.
Valerian Root Benefits
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has used Valerian Root for centuries. Valerian Root is widely recognized for its potential to help sleeping problems such as insomnia. A meta analysis showed subjective improvements for insomnia using this herb. In the body, Valerian Root binds to GABA Type-A receptors – which inhibits (decreases) the excitatory pathways associated with being awake and alert.
Tart Cherry Extract
Amino acid L-Theanine is found primarily in tea leaves and is helpful for promoting things like relaxation. To avoid caffeine in tea, one would turn to supplementation. L-Theanine has been shown to help offset the disturbances during sleep caused by caffeine consumption, and support alpha brain waves (associated most with relaxed, calm, and mindful mental states) – making this a perfect natural aid for preparing the body for sleep.
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a non-protein amino acid that is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in mammals. GABA was first discovered in 1950 and it was soon to be known that GABA is produced and is preferentially stored in the brain. Because of its widespread activity in the body and vast research done on this compound, GABA may provide aid in these benefits. Potential to improve heart rate variability (HRV), decrease stress-score levels in participants, potential to moderate blood pressure, and much more!
L-Tryptophan is an amino acid that is a precursor to the synthesis of melatonin. It gets converted to an intermediate product, commonly known as 5-HT, which then acts as a precursor to serotonin and melatonin synthesis. Melatonin then signals the brain to transition and prepare the body for sleep.
