As part of the company launching into the marketplace, Nutriden Inc. is launching its new Sleep aid formula.
The main ingredients associated with a quality sleep aid are: melatonin, L-Theanine, and 5 Hydroxtriptophan (5-HTP) and Nutriden’s new sleep aid contains all three.
“Melatonin is a natural hormone made by your body's pineal (pih-knee-uhl) gland. This is a pea-sized gland located just above the middle of the brain. During the day the pineal is inactive. When the sun goes down and darkness occurs, the pineal is "turned on" by the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) and begins to actively produce melatonin, which is released into the blood. Usually, this occurs around 9 pm. As a result, melatonin levels in the blood rise sharply and you begin to feel less alert. Sleep becomes more inviting. Melatonin levels in the blood stay elevated for about 12 hours - all through the night - before the light of a new day when they fall back to low daytime levels by about 9 am. Daytime levels of melatonin are barely detectable,” says the National Sleep Foundation.
Many people suffer from insomnia due to jet lag, unusual work schedules, and a plethora of medical conditions. People who have trouble sleeping generally have lower levels of melatonin. The main benefit of meltonin is to adjust the body’s internal clock so that it relaxes the mind and body and encourages sleep.
L-theanine is a relaxing amino acid found in green tea. L-theanine is used to treat people with anxiety and it helps them feel calm. Additionally, L-theanine and its ability to calm helps significantly improve sleep quality.
Although, well-known for its mood enhancing uses, 5-HTP is being used to treat insomnia and jet lag. 5-HTP is a natural compound that the brain converts into Serotonin and Melatonin – two neurotransmitters that regulate sleep patterns.
5-HTP used for sleep regulates the levels of Serotonin and Melatonin in the brain. Increasing levels of these neurotransmitters has been associated with improved ability to fall asleep as well as more restful, deeper sleep throughout the night.
