Optimal Sleep Complex Mode of Action

Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate is a mineral which has sedative properties. The bisglycinate form of the mineral has the highest bioavailable absorption (1). Its structure of a chelated amino acid means that there are 2 glycine molecules (bisglycinate) attached to the magnesium molecule. The bisglycinate form is stable and avoids a breakdown in the gastrointestinal tract before it is completely absorbed. It is also tolerated better and has less gastrointestinal side effects. The bisglycinate chelate aids in mineral absorption because it is a small sized molecule and can be absorbed directly by intestinal cells. Pure Nootropics chooses to use TRAACS® by Albion Minerals which is a certification that the mineral content is guaranteed to be an authentic chelated mineral amino acid for superior bioavailability (2).

Magnesium helps promote longer sleep times and falling asleep faster through its ability to promote relaxation and calm the nervous system (2).

Zinc Bisglycinate Chelate is a trace element which has a higher bioavailability than zinc gluconate and other forms of zinc supplements. Its structure of a chelated amino acid means that there are 2 glycine molecules (bisglycinate) attached to the zinc molecule. The bisglycinate form is stable and avoids a breakdown in the gastrointestinal tract before it is completely absorbed. It is also tolerated better and has less gastrointestinal side effects. The bisglycinate chelate aids in mineral absorption because it is a small sized molecule and can be absorbed directly by intestinal cells. Pure Nootropics chooses to use TRAACS® by Albion Minerals which is a certification that the mineral content is guaranteed to be an authentic chelated mineral amino acid for superior bioavailability (2).

Zinc promotes and regulates sleep quality, but the entirety of the mechanisms behind its actions with regards to sleep is still being researched (3).

Lemon Balm and Valerian Root Combination is a combination of the herbal extracts of Lemon Balm and Valerian root.

They are often used together because they exhibit synergy that may improve sleep quality. Lemon Balm acts as a GABA transaminase inhibitor; GABA is broken down into Glutamate by GABA transaminase, so the inhibition of this enzyme frees up more GABA in the brain. Valerian stimulates GABA by stimulating glutamate decarboxylase; glutamate is converted into GABA with this enzyme. The combination of Lemon Balm and Valerian is then able to stimulate the production of GABA within the brain by stimulating conversion of GABA and preventing the breakdown of GABA (4). Activation of GABA within the brain promotes sleep (5).

L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid which is converted in the body into serotonin, which helps support healthy sleep patterns (6). This mechanism may decrease the time it takes to fall asleep (7).

L-Theanine is an amino acid which naturally occurs in tea leaves and some forms of mushrooms
(8).

L-Theanine promotes sleep quality due to its ability to provide relaxation by increasing alpha-brain waves and regulating excitatory neurotransmitters that may inhibit restful sleep. Alpha-brain waves (8-13 Hz) are the brain waves associated with relaxation and alertness and are produced within 30-40 minutes after ingestion. The alpha-brain waves (or “a-waves”) occur in the occipital and parietal regions of the brain and prepare the body for a relaxed state prior to sleep (9,10).

Melatonin is a hormone made in the human body within the pineal gland, retina, bone marrow cells, and gastrointestinal tract.

Melatonin regulates circadian rhythms and may decrease sleep latency (or the time it takes to fall asleep). Some research indicates that it reduces body temperature and that is mainly responsible for its ability to induce sleep. Melatonin decreases with age, especially between 41 and 60 years of age (11).

Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate, Melatonin and Zinc Combination combine the benefits of all 3 of these supplements and has been studied in this combination in humans. This beneficial combination demonstrates the ability to promote healthy sleep patterns in adults (18, 19).
