So What Makes Ultimate Sleep Stand Out from the Rest?
Ultimate Sleep is one of the most advanced sleep-supporting formulas available today. It combines serotonin-enhancing ingredients along with anti-anxiety/calming nutrients, low-dose melatonin for deep-sleep support, nutrients that help block tryptophan degradation with an ingredient that has been documented to help lessen night-time urination (which negatively effects sleep cycles). Simply put, it is the most advanced sleep-supporting formula available in the industry to date!
What to Expect From This Product
â€¢ Help support a healthy sleep cycle conducive to optimal human growth hormone (HGH) release â€¢ Help repair, renew and reactivate muscle cells to optimize metabolic function â€¢ Help to effectively burn calories during the sleep phase â€¢ Help reduce excess stress hormones â€“ primarily cortisol â€“ that interfere with a deep restorative sleep
Protect Against Tryptophan Breakdown for the Ultimate Sleep
In order to achieve optimal sleep, the body requires a sufficient supply of the essential amino acid â€“ tryptophan. Tryptophan is the precursor to the balancing happy brain chemical â€“ serotonin. Serotonin is needed to manufacture melatonin â€“ the premiere sleep supporting hormone. So without adequate tryptophan levels, we suffer from sleep disturbances followed by moodiness, depression, anxiety and excessive cravings (and sometimes binge eating).
The problem is that it is very difficult to maintain adequate tryptophan levels â€“ especially as we get older â€“ as tryptophan is one of the least common amino acids in foods. Aside from this, tryptophan is easily degraded by specialized enzymes in the body that are increased due to: â€¢ Excess stress â€¢ Aging
The end result is less tryptophan, which often leads to serotonin-deficiency states that can often manifest in: â€¢ Inadequate sleep â€¢ Moodiness and increased anxiety â€¢ Weight gain and enhanced desire to eat sweet and starchy foods â€¢ Loss of a zest for life
EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:
5-HTP (from Griffonia simplicifolia), 25 mg â€“ is manufactured by the body from tryptophan and is the direct building block for making serotonin. The 5-HTP in Ultimate Sleep is naturally extracted from seeds of the griffonia â€“ a West African medicinal plant. Due to its serotonin enhancing effects, 5-HTP has been used to help induce better sleep, control depression, reduce anxiety and stress, reduce cravings and aid in weight reduction.
Pumpkin-seed extract, 250 mg â€“ Ultimate Sleep uses a patented water-soluble fraction of pumpkin seed extract proven to help reduce night time urination. Pumpkin seeds have been documented to help treat urinary problems since 1578. The problem with all other pumpkin seed extracts is they are fat soluble (not water soluble) and thereby not very well absorbed.
L-Lysine, 125 mg â€“ Lysine competes with the same enzyme that is responsible for degrading tryptophan. By competing for this enzyme, more tryptophan is available for more serotonin and melatonin production.
Niacinamide, 25 mg â€“ the non flushing B3 vitamin â€“ is incorporated into the Ultimate Sleep formula because tryptophan can be degraded in the body to produce B3 if there is not sufficient niacinamide present.
Melatonin, 1 mg â€“ is a hormone released by the pineal gland in the center of our brain in order to help regulate our 24 hour cycles and maintain effective sleep and recuperation. Ultimate Sleep contains a small dosage of pure pharmaceutical grade melatonin, as high dosages are not recommended for everyone.
Jujube (Zizyphus jujuba) fruit extract (4:1), 50 mg â€“ The seeds of this fruit are widely known in traditional Chinese medicine and have been used for centuries to help treat insomnia and anxiety. The herb has been shown to calm, relax, reduce stress, conserve energy, and promote sleep.
L-Theanine, 50 mg â€“ is an amino acid derived from green tea. It has been documented in numerous studies to exhibit a natural relaxing sensation and to help reduce excess stress without drowsiness, impaired thought or other side effects.
