Night Time ZMA contains a formula of the proven zinc, magnesium and Vitamin B6 combo with the addition of 5-htp and L-Theanine to help give a deep, refreshing & restful sleep.
Both ZMA and 5HTP have been found to increase slow wave deep sleep (SWS) without increasing the duration of total sleep time. Additionally, 5HTP has been found to increase Rapid Eye Movement (REM), the benefits which include cognitive function enhancements such as improved problem solving and memory function. Both REM and SWS are essential to a healthy nights sleep as this is when healing, tissue repair, anabolic hormone production and muscle growth are maximised.
L-Theanine is the secret ingredient in green tea that gives users a calm, relaxed feeling without drowsiness. Additionally, just 200mg of L-Theanine has been shown to increase sllep quality, recovery, from exhaustion and refreshed feelings by regulating alpha brain waves and controlling hyper beta waves.
Combining these ingredients together creates a potent, highly synergistic formula. L-Theanine helps calm the mind before bedtime, reducing feelings of stress and creating a sense of relaxation. The magnesium, zinc and vitamin b6 are all co-factors in the conversion of 5HTP to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter involved in sleep. Further, normal serotonin levels help elevate the mood upon waking and throughtout the day. To further potentiate these benefits, we have included 5mg of bioperine, a patented black pepper extract which increases the absorption and availabilityof nutrients
