It’s been formulated with an array of clinically proven ingredients to promote restful sleep and enhance the body’s recovery process.
Let’s quickly break down what’s inside this supplement:
myHMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate or HMB)
MyHMB is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine and promotes protein synthesis and reduces protein degradation. These mechanisms allow your body to blunt muscle damage, allowing you to recovery faster and be able to attack your next activity or training session.
CherryPURE (Tart Cherry Powder)
CherryPURE is produced from the phytonutrient rich skins of Montmorency tart cherries. Clinically research has shown to improve muscle recovery and markers of inflammation.
L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid that is known to support recovery in the body. Research has shown that supplementing with L-Glutamine may decrease muscle soreness, reduce fatigue, and improve recovery after intense exercise.
GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid)
GABA is a neurotransmitter, a chemical messenger in your brain that slows down your brain by blocking specific signals in your central nervous system. GABA has been shown to have a calming effect to help reduce stress, anxiety, and improve sleep.
5-HTP is the precursor to serotonin and a byproduct of tryptophan, which is often described as the neurotransmitter responsible for happiness. It is been shown to promote sleep and help regulate appetite.
Melatonin is a hormone that plays a vital role in your sleep. The production and release of melatonin in the brain is connected to time of day and it increases when it’s dark and decreases when it’s light. Supplementing with melatonin has been shown to promote sleep.
