Advanced sleep support for women with passionflower, magnesium, and biotin.
Not all sleep aids are created equal. In order to fall asleep, the body first conducts a series of checks and balances, like body temperature and hormone levels. It’s therefore no surprise then that women’s sleep requirements and sleep cycles differ quite substantially from men’s. The biological phases of a woman's life like menstruation, pregnancy and the natural hormonal shifts that accompany them also make women more susceptible to sleep disruption.
Femi night ™ brings together a complex set of herbs, amino acids, antioxidants and B-vitamins in the precise quantities recommended by the highly regarded Nutritional Medical Practitioner and gynaecologist Dr. Elena Leschen (MD) to work with these unique female characteristics to support women with attaining the three vital stages of sleep:
Passionflower: Femi night ™ contains passionflower (Passiflora incarnata), a strange and beautiful vine flower whose fruit, the maypop, comprises alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids and maltol. Sometimes also called passion vine; maracuja or apricot vine, passionflower has traditionally been used for thousands of years all over the world to:
In laboratory conditions, passionflower has been shown to boost levels of a brain chemical GABA, lowering the activity of some brain cells, resulting in a calmer state of mind. In one study passionflower performed as well as oxazepam, a popular prescription sleep aid and anxiolytic. Due to passionflower’s slow onset of action it also performed well for people who have problems staying asleep rather than just falling asleep. The report also showed that taking passionflower instead of oxazepam resulted in fewer short term side effects like the impairment of job performance.
L-tryptophan is a naturally occurring amino acid (the building blocks of protein) in nutrition. Essential amino acids cannot be created by the body and must therefore be ingested. L-tryptophan is a precursor to the neuro transmitter serotonin. The disruption of either serotonin or melatonin can lead to the symptoms of insomnia and depression. Because tryptophan increases serotonin, it also increases melatonin - both neuro-transmitters in the brain’s pineal gland intimately involved in the regulation of sleep cycles.
L-taurine is an amino acid that calms the nervous system by facilitating the production of the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). By raising GABA levels, taurine helps the body to manage anxiety and the sort of over-thinking associated with stress and insomnia.
Magnesium is a mineral that should be present in large amounts in the body and is vital in more than 300 chemical processes that keep the body functioning properly. Amongst them are its ability to help us fall and stay asleep by regulating the hormone melatonin. Consequently, not having enough can lead to troubled sleep and insomnia.
Magnesium also regulates neurotransmitters and specifically binds to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors, a neurotransmitter responsible for quieting nerve activity – the same mechanism exploited by some pharmaceutical sleeping pills.
