Somno-Pro | 90 Chewable Tablets:
L-Theanine, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and melatonin have all been shown to independently improve sleep quality and quantity, and/or lessen anxiety. L-Theanine is an amino acid found almost exclusively in tea, which influences the central nervous system through a number of mechanisms, primarily by influencing levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, norepinephrine and glutamate. These effects cause a significant increase in alpha brain wave activity, indicative of a state of wakeful relaxation, increased performance under stress, improved learning and concentration, as well as decreased anxiety.
5-HTP is the intermediary between L-tryptophan and serotonin, a key neurotransmitter associated with sleep, mood and anxiety. 5-HTP bypasses the rate-limiting enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, which normally limits the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin. Melatonin is also closely related, and is formed by conversion of serotonin in the pineal gland. Known to regulate many biological rhythms, including the circadian cycle, melatonin has shown clinical benefit for inducing sleep or adjusting sleep cycles. Randomized trials have found it to reduce sleep onset latency and improve perceived quality of sleep, without impairing daytime psychomotor performance.

L-Theanine is known to have a hypotensive effect in some individuals, and concomitant use of antihypertensive drugs may potentiate their activity. Consult a health care professional prior to use if you are taking carbidopa or drugs/supplements with serotonergic activity. These may include, but are not limited to L-tryptophan, S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), St. John’s wort, antidepressants, pain killers, over-the-counter cough and cold medication containing dextromethorphan, antinausea and antimigraine medication.
If symptoms worsen or persist for more than 3 weeks (chronic insomnia), consult a health care professional. Some people may experience diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Discontinue use if you show signs of weakness, oral ulcers, skin changes or abdominal pain accompanied by severe muscle pain. Do not use if you are taking blood pressure, immunosuppressive or sedative/hypnotic medication.
