Alpha GABA PM product image
SKU: NEU-NS0057
Wave goodbye to restlessness with this researched blend of botanicals and 400mg of L-theanine shown to induce calming brain waves and naturally imrove sleep during times of stress.* Features evidence-based ingredients in a botanical alternative sleep blend, formulated to naturally downshift a racing mind to calming brain waves (1,2).* Alpha GABA PM uses proprietary whole lemon balm leaf extract, providing improved mechanism capability, as well as micro-encapsulated valerian root to improve the odors characteristic to this botanical. 

Key Ingredients:
L-Theanine: Amino acid that acts as a glutamate receptor antagonist (1).* L-theanine has been linked to the generation of alpha brain waves, indicating a state of relaxation (2).*

Melatonin: Hormone important for the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle (3).* Supplementation with melatonin has been shown to improve the onset of sleep (4).*

Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) root extract (Valerenic acids 0.8%) (Micro-encapsulated): Both in vitro and in vivo studies demonstrate valerian extracts modulate GABA-A receptors (5-8).* Micro-encapsulation reduces valerian root odors.

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) leaf extract: Botanical shown to inhibit the enzyme GABA transaminase in vitro, which may increase levels of GABA
in the brain (9).* Utilizes proprietary extract extensively researched to reduce stress (10,11).

5-HTP (from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract): 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) crosses the blood-brain barrier and is a precursor to serotonin and
melatonin. Serotonin is important for regulating mood and sleep-wake function (12).
