Alpha-GPC (Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline 50%)
Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline or Alpha-GPC is a premium Choline source and increases the synthesis and release of an important neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine. Alpha-GPC readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and supports the regeneration of damaged nerve levels. Numerous studies have confirmed it is both neuroprotective and supports superior cognitive function & brain health. Alpha-GPC also increases GABA levels which promotes deeper, more restful sleep. Alpha-GPC has also been associated with higher GH (growth hormone) peaks when supplemented at 600mg. Due to Alpha-GPC ability to increase synthesis of acetylcholine, along with all the cognitive benefits this provides, heightened acetylcholine levels are linked to longer REM sleep states. Alpha-GPC will not only enhance mental focus, attention and memory as it's usually used for; but will improve your quality of sleep and sleep learning if taken as a supplement daily.
For those who like lucid dreams, this is something to look out for.
Zylaria™ (Xylaria nigripes)
Zylaria™ was developed by NuLiv Science whom are cutting edge developers of nutraceuticals. Zylaria Is a unique species of Xylaria, which naturally contains high levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is naturally occurring in the body and acts as a neurotransmitter that inhibits the conductivity between the nerve endings; the result of this is reduced stress, anxiety and insomnia. GABA is associated with reduced perception of stress, anxiety, insomnia, improved sleep quality, relaxation & calming and evening elevations of growth hormone(GH). Zylaria replenishes the brain of this important amino acid.
Zylaria has been demonstrated to regulate, support & promote relaxation, elevated mood and improved sleep quality & latency.
Mucuna Pruriens (Std. to 98% L-Dopa)
Mcuna Pruriens also known as velvet bean is a plant in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for a variety of purposes. Mcuna Pruriens contains higher levels of L-Dopa, which is what we are interested specifically. L-Dopa is the precursor to dopamine, dopamine is a important brain chemical that plays a major role in motivation, pleasure and emotions. L-Dopa has been shown to reduce stress which further attenuates it's sleep improving qualities. L-Dopa supplementation will improve general cognitive function, mood, libido, motivation and sleep quality.
Not to forget to mention L-Dopa's positive impact on Growth Hormone, Testosterone & Cortisol.
KSM-66® Full Spectrum Ashwagandha root extract (5% Withanolides)
KSM-66 Ashwagandha was developed by Ixoreal is usually associated with its positive impacts on hormone optimisation, enhanced performance, cognition, improved mood & well-being and last but not least it's anti-inflammatory, immune boosting and antioxidant effects. However KSM also has a profound effect on stress reduction and perception of stress, recent studies have illustrated that Ashwagandha can be an effective sleep and anxiety aid. Ashwagandha contains the compound triethylene glycol which may help promote sleep induction and improve sleep quality & quantity even potentially in individuals with anxiety and sleep disorders such as insomnia.
We use the patented form of Ashwagandha, KSM-66 to ensure quality.
5-Hydroxytryptohan also known as 5-HTP is a compound made naturally in the body. 5-HTP is produced from seeds of Griffonia Simplicfolia, a plant native to West Africa. 5-HTP is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, serotonin plays a important role in regulating mood & sleep-wake cycles. Healthy levels of serotonin are correlated with positive mood/well being and also promote restful sleep. Serotonin can also be converted into a hormone which plays a important role in regulating sleep-wake cycles: melotonin which optimal levels of this hormone help in having regular sleep-wake cycles, which are needed for rejuvenating and restful sleep. Further, 5-HTP has been shown in studies to promote relaxation and alleviate stress and anxiety, due to the elevation of serotonin levels.
5-HTP further enhances the effect of the other compounds in the formula, creating a synergistic effect.
L-Theanine is a amino acid found in camellia sinensis also known as the tea plant. L-Theanine is known for its calming properties, and assists with anxiety reduction. L-Theanine is used to combat stress and improves sleep quality by facilitating a reduction in anxiety and promoting relaxation via a number of changes in the brain. For example, L-Theanine elevates levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and other important neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, which are not only involved in regulating mood, energy, concentration, appetite; increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals can aid in improving sleep also.
L-Theanine works synergistically to create optimal environment for relaxation and improved sleep quality.
The patented absorption enhancer developed by the Sabinsa corporation. This greatly enhances bioavailability of all of the aforementioned. Bioperine has been shown in clinical studies to improve bioavailability drastically.
Sleep & GHrow can be stacked with any of the Brawn Elite range. Also, this is not just suitable for athletes, anyone with a tiring or vigorous lifestyle looking to optimise sleep & rejuvenation can benefit.
