Sleep Factors™ Sleep is a key influence in maintaining emotional balance and generally promoting good health. Without sleep, true harmony within the body is not possible. Sleep, or lack thereof, may be an important, vastly under-appreciated determinant of health. Many nutrients are necessary even during sleep. Some vitamins are important for stimulating amino acids, like tryptophan, into serotonin, a sleep neurotransmitter. During sleep, the body’s autonomic systems are still controlling basic functions of glands, organs, muscles, metabolism, and respiration. To prepare for eight hours at night when we do not take in any new nourishment a store of nutrients must be available.
The following nutrients are essential for the overall health of the body and used during sleep: CALCIUM is great for relaxation and is more readily absorbed by the body at night when the body’s stores are also not being used. There is a well-established calcium-magnesium interaction that plays an important role in the body. MAGNESIUM is essential for calcium transport and utilization. Calcium and magnesium both play a role in nervous system function.
In addition: 5-HTP can enhance the production of serotonin in the body. Melatonin is known for its ability to help facilitate sleep.
OTHER INGREDIENTS: Hypromellose (Capsule), Microcrystalline Cellulose, and Leucine.

Waking up tired after sleeping all night? Tossing and turning at night?
Addressing your stress and your lack of nutrients would be a smart decision. If you decide to rely on supplementation, think in terms of complements. Don't rely on a single nutrient. By doing so you create an opportunity for an imbalance to occur.
