Paralysis is a very potent sleep formula that not only makes it easier to fall asleep in the first place but also improves the quality of sleep once you doze off. It contains 7 active ingredients that all work together to ensure you get the best night’s sleep possible. Here is a brief breakdown of each of the ingredients:
GABA – 3000mg
Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain. GABA blocks or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your central nervous system which in turn has a broad range of effects on the body and mind, including increased relaxation, reduced stress, a more calm, balanced mood, alleviation of pain, and a boost to sleep.
L-Glycine – 2150mg
Glycine is an amino acid that your body uses to create proteins, which it needs for the growth and maintenance of tissue and for making important substances, such as hormones and enzymes. In particular, glycine helps the body make serotonin, a hormone and neurotransmitter that has significant effect on sleep and mood.
Mucuna Pruriens – 500mg
Mucuna Pruriens is a bean that grows on a vine. It is a good source of L-Dopa which is a precursor to Dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter involved in producing and releasing Melatonin.
Phenibut – 400mg
Phenibut is similar to GABA and research has shown a small dose (250mg – 500mg) generates a relaxed yet clear focused mental state and it has been shown to be effective in treating both anxiety and insomnia. This obviously makes it the perfect ingredient to include in a sleep aid product.
L-Theanine – 200mg
L-Theanine is an amino acid in tea leaves and mushrooms. It promotes relaxation and facilitates sleep by contributing to a number of changes in the brain. Changes such as booting levels of GABA, lowers levels of stress and anxiety causing chemicals and enhances alpha brain waves.
5HTP – 200mg
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) produced from the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia. It works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing production of serotonin. Serotonin is used for several diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression and insomnia.
Melatonin – 5mg
Melatonin is a hormone that occurs naturally in your body. It helps control your sleep patterns. You can take a manmade version of melatonin for short-term sleep problems (Insomnia). It makes you fall asleep quicker and less likely to wake up during the night. It can also help with symptoms of jet lag.
