Valerian : Research has shown that valerian extract may cause GABA to be released from brain nerve endings. In addition, Valerian’s valerenic acid inhibits an enzyme that destroys GABA thus improving GABA levels and promoting a great night’s rest. This magical root can also assist our bodies in calming anxiety, lowering blood pressure, improving stress management and easing menstrual cramps.
Magnesium : We could easily write a whole book on Magnesium and its very powerful healing properties. We encourage everyone to conduct their own research. Magnesium is a wonder mineral and assists our bodies to cope with everyday life, thus making it a vitally important mineral for optimum mind and body function. Some of the benefits are; better sleep, relaxes the nervous system, bigger stronger muscles, better flexibility, bone integrity and strength, re-mineralises our teeth, alkalises the body (anti-cancer), reduces effects of diabetes, hydrates and encourages enzyme production.
Wow, who wouldn’t want as much of this mineral as possible. This is why we used it for sleep and recovery. GABA GABA or gamma-amino butyric acid is an amino acid. It is the main inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter in the brain which is also a natural anti-epileptic agent, and is a vital compound for optimum brain function. GABA also allows us to feel calm, peaceful, relaxed throughout the day and sleepy at bedtime, releasing our bodies’ natural happy endorphins.
