Sleep Onset is the transition from wakefulness into sleep. Rest helps activate your bodies GABA receptor system, which lowers neuronal firing in the brain and central nervous system. This reduction in brain activity preps the body for a healthy sleep-wake cycle.
Sleep efficiency is the total amount of sleep compared to the time spent in bed. Rest uses melatonin to help you fall asleep quickly and a combination of natural plant extract to ensure you achieve deep sleep throughout the night.
During sleep, your body repairs cells that have been damaged by free radicals and toxic waste products that accumulate throughout the day. Rest uses essential minerals, vitamins, and neurotransmitter precursors that support this recovery phase.
Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral, and the second most prevalent electrolyte in the human body with over 300 biochemical processes. Magnesium Glycinate is the most bioavailable form and best suited for your bodies absorption. When it comes to sleep, it supports muscle relaxation, growth and recovery. It also helps curb the production of cortisol, a ‘stress hormone’ that disturbs peaceful sleep, allowing your body and mind to fall asleep faster and wake more refreshed.
L-Theanine is a natural occuring amino acid found in green tea. This amino acid stimulates production of alpha brain waves directly, creating a state of deep relaxation such as is often achieved via meditation. When combined with Magnesium and Melatonin it is a great sleep aid.

This traditional herb has been shown to reduce anxiety and promote deep sleep.
5-HTP is naturally produced in the body and a direct precursor to serotonin. Serotonin is one of the principal neurotransmitters that plays a key role in regulating mood and sleep-wake cycles.
This trace mineral is essential for over 300 enzymes in the human body and necessary to initiate and maintain quality sleep.
This essential vitamin is involved in the synthesis of serotonin, a hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle.
Melatonin is a hormone occurs naturally in your body and plays a vital role in your sleep-wake cycle. An MIT study suggested that only a small dose (300-500 micograms) is necessary for a restful effect. Taken in that quantity, it not only helps people fall asleep, but also makes it easier for them to return to sleep after waking up during the night. The study found that commercially available melatonin pills (3-5 milligrams) contain 10 times the effective amount in which the receptors become unresponsive.
