It's Time to Rethink Sleep
Introducing Zylaria™ (Xylaria nigripes), a unique species of Xylaria containing abundant levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) to promote relaxation and normal sleep quality.*
SILENCING THE BUSY MIND: HOW ZYLARIA™ GOES TO WORK
When night approaches, the body and mind should naturally unwind and be aware that it’s time for rest; however, for many individuals, this doesn’t happen for a number of reasons. The body needs an essential amino acid called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in order for the brain to communicate specific signals throughout the body.
Zylaria™ replenishes the brain with this essential amino acid and phytonutrients to support normal healthy brain functions due to the fungi’s sedative-like qualities.
A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP: NATURE’S FUNGI FOR RELAXATION
A hearty dose of essential amino acids and nutrients means that individuals looking to wind down after a long and stressful day benefit from the abundant nutrients within the fungi. This fungi present among the termites underground provides the primary source of nutrients, which is also a boost of benefits for humans.
GABA acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain, promoting relaxation in the central nervous system. GABA-T breaks down GABA into SSA and glutamate. Glutamate plays a role in starting and keeping our sleep/wake cycles in balance. GAD (glutamic acid decarboxylase) is an enzyme that plays a critical role in regulating the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain, specifically GABA. By converting glutamate to GABA, GAD helps to keep the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain in check, which is important for maintaining normal brain function, including sleep/wake cycles.
Adenosine has long been known to induce sleep via adenosine receptors. Finally, genistein increases the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) mRNA and protein levels. Several studies show that depressive subjects have low levels of BDNF in the brain. Poor sleep quality is also related to alterations in BDNF concentration.
Valerian Root Extract
Valerian root contains a number of compounds that may promote sleep.
These include valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and a variety of antioxidants.
Valerian has received attention for its interaction with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in your brain and nervous system.
Researchers have shown that low GABA levels related to acute and chronic stress are linked to low-quality sleep
Valerenic acid has been found to inhibit the breakdown of GABA in the brain, resulting in feelings of calmness and tranquility.
Valerian root also contains the antioxidants hesperidin and linarin, which appear to have sedative and sleep-enhancing properties
Many of these compounds may inhibit excessive activity in the amygdala, a part of the brain that processes fear and strong emotional responses to stress
One study found that treating mice with valerian improved their response to physical and psychological stress by maintaining levels of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in mood regulation
