How it works
Stress-Relax® Tranquil Sleep works in harmony with the body’s own natural sleep hormones to help reduce the time it takes to fall asleep, increase the quality and duration of sleep, relieve daytime fatigue, and reset the body’s sleep-wake cycle.
Melatonin is a brain hormone critical for regulating the “circadian rhythm” of the body’s internal clock, and triggering the onset of sleep. Low melatonin secretion at night can be a cause of insomnia. When melatonin levels are low, taking a melatonin supplement is very effective for promoting sleep.
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) improves sleep by increasing the amount of serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a brain hormone required for healthy sleep. An irregular sleep schedule can reduce serotonin production, triggering a vicious circle of poor sleep, stress, depression, and fatigue. Supplemental 5-HTP is metabolized into serotonin, thereby helping the body restore a pattern of restful sleep.
L-theanine crosses the blood-brain barrier and slows the firing of nerves, resulting in relaxation and a shift to restful alpha brain wave activity, without causing drowsiness. It can also lower the heart rate and reduce the stress response. Safe and effective Stress-Relax Tranquil Sleep helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep, with no next-day grogginess.
