- Bioclinic Naturals Somno-Pro Chewable, Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the central nervous L-Theanine, 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), and melatonin have all been shown to independently improve sleep quality and quantity, and/or lessen anxiety.
- L-Theanine is an amino acid found almost exclusively in tea, which influences the central nervous system through a number of mechanisms, primarily by influencing levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, norepinephrine, and glutamate.
- These effects cause a significant increase in alpha brain wave activity, indicative of a state of wakeful relaxation, increased performance under stress, improved learning and concentration, as well as decreased anxiety.
- 5-HTP is the intermediary between L-tryptophan and serotonin, a key neurotransmitter associated with sleep, mood, and anxiety.
- 5-HTP bypasses the rate-limiting enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, which normally limits the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin.
- Melatonin is also closely related, and is formed by conversion of serotonin in the pineal gland.
- Known to regulate many biological rhythms, including the circadian cycle, melatonin has shown clinical benefit for inducing sleep or adjusting sleep cycles.
- Randomized trials have found it to reduce sleep onset latency and improve perceived quality of sleep, without impairing daytime psychomotor performance.
- Addresses every facet of insomnia, difficulty initiating sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, waking too early in the morning, and waking groggy.
- Safe, without the side effects of prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medications.
- Chewable tablets are convenient and fast-acting.
- Delicious tropical fruit flavored chewable.
