Sleep Capsules

100 vegetarian capsules

A non-addictive combination formula to promote better sleep, elevate mood and concentration, and calm anxiety. Contains 5-hydroxytryptophan, GABA, magnesium and inositol.

5-hydroxytryptophan is a naturally occurring amino acid and is the precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which promotes normal REM sleep. GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is another neurotransmitter that helps to induce relaxation and promote sleep.

Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant and a sleep enhancer, which is important for mineral balance, glucose regulation, immune regulation and amino acid activation. Inositol is a critical component of the cell membrane and myelin sheath. It works synergistically with GABA to reduce the stress response.

No fillers, no artificial flavours, lactose-free.
