Sleep Relief’s bi-phasic, time-release technology delivers NBI’s proprietary formula with clinically validated nutrients in two stages—a quick-release first stage and a slow-release second stage to help you gently fall asleep, stay asleep and wake refreshed and ready for your day.
Biphasic, Time-Release Tablets
Sleep Relief’s biphasic tablets release nutrients in two phases. Phase I is a quick-release stage, delivering its nutrients within about 30-45 minutes. This phase’s nutrients naturally promote relaxation and help you gently fall asleep.
Phase II is the sustained-release phase, delivering the rest of Sleep Relief’s nutrients over the next 4 hours. Nutrients in phase II naturally help you stay asleep.
The Right Amount and Combination of Nutrients
No two people are exactly alike, and what is creating sleep issues in someone may not be a problem for someone else. That’s why Sleep Relief gently and naturally targets the entire sleep cycle to help you fall asleep, stay asleep and wake refreshed.
Circadian modulator. Our circadian rhythms are our body’s day-night cycles. Melatonin is the circadian modulator that tells our body that it’s time for sleep and is involved in sleep onset. Many things can decrease melatonin, such using computers, including smartphones, ereaders and tablets at night; medications: and in many people melatonin declines as they get older as part of the aging process. A small amount of melatonin (just 1 mg per tablet) helps prepare your body for sleep.
Calming magnesium, amino acids and herbs. Sleep Relief contains magnesium, a gentler muscle relaxer. The amino acids L-Tryptophan, L-Theanine, glycine and GABA and herbs such as Hops (Humulus lupulus) and Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) all contribute to the calming effects of Sleep Relief by targeting different neurological and biochemical pathways.
- L-Tryptophan is converted to serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is a mood-elevating hormone and melatonin is a circadian modulator that helps regulate your body’s day and night cycle.
- L-Theanine promotes alpha wave brain activity, which is associated with alert relaxation.
- Glycine and GABA are nutrients that acts as naturally calming neurotransmitters that promote relaxation.
- Hops and Skullcap are ancient plants that have long histories of use in traditional healing systems. Native Americans relied on them for a wide variety of medicinal purposes, and extensive research has validated many of their traditional applications, including promoting healthy sleep.
Adaptogenic herbs like Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) and Jujube (Ziziphus jujuba). Adaptogens are a unique class of healing plants. They help balance, restore and protect the body. Ashwagandha and Jujube are ancient plants that have been used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years and can promote a healthy stress response.
Standardized extracts. Using standardized plant extracts ensures consistent quality and uniformity across batches. Herbal standardized extracts are what are most often used in clinical trials.
60 biphasic, time-release tablets per bottle. This is a 30-60 day supply, depending on whether you take 1 or 2 tablets at bedtime. For most people, 1 tablet is probably sufficient, but for those who need more, they can take 2 tablets.
