A Racing Mind & Sleep
Triggered by stressful situations and worries about the future or the health of loved ones, a racing mind can cause adrenaline to pump through our veins. The result is a pounding heart, shaky hands, and tense muscles, all of which can cause us lose sleep. Two key ingredients in Sleepy Gummies, GABA and L-Theanine, are known to “put the brakes on the brain” and halt the mental stress cycle.
GABA is a chemical messenger in the brain that reduces activity of our neurons, which become overstimulated when we experience fear or anxiety. In essence, GABA calms the mental storm that occurs during stressful times. Additionally, prolonged periods of stress can impair normal GABA activity, which may lead to depression and anxiety throughout the day. Studies have shown many benefits to GABA supplementation, including reducing anxiety, increasing Alpha brain waves during sleep and improving overall sleep quality.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea. It gained interested due to it’s ability to counteract the stimulating effects of caffeine. But the benefits of L-Theanine don’t stop there. Since it’s discovery in 1949 research has shown that calming neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, are supported by the nutrient. These neurotransmitters are responsible to regulation of our mood, emotions and sleep. L-Theanine also has been shown to promote relaxation and help support our stress response.
The combination of GABA and L-Theanine has been studied in humans, and it appears the mixture of the two multiply their benefits as compared to taking either nutrient individually. Findings of one study showed people fell asleep faster, extended the length of sleep and significantly increased REM sleep when taken together before bed.
