Americans are taking sleeping pills like never before, fueled by frenetic workdays that do not go gently into the night. Continually, people are turning to a new generation of sleep aids, of which many, unfortunately, come with undesirable side effects, including morning grogginess. It seems like everyone, at some point or another, experiences sleep difficulty, including initiating or maintaining sleep, waking up too early, or becoming the victim of non-restorative or poor-quality sleep. All of these circumstances can lead to fatigue, lack of energy and motivation, daytime sleepiness, impairment in cognitive function (attention, concentration, and memory), errors and accidents at work or while driving, unstable mood, irritability, and even physical symptoms, such as tension headaches. In fact, about 50% of Americans experience significant sleep problems at some time in their lives. What is really troublesome is that 10% of Americans have sleep difficulty every night. Put another way, about one in ten people in this country had a bad day today due to sleep difficulty last night. They woke up tired this morning and their day was unproductive (and they continue to experience this plague night after night). Sadly, the sleep lost on any given night is lost forever and there is no catching up. With that lost sleep comes impaired bodily functions, including compromises to the immune system, metabolic function, cognitive performance (specifically memory and learning), and more. The restorative value of sleep cannot be underscored enough.
The alarming number of individuals with sleep problems triggered Hi-Tech researchers into action to search the world over for effective nutraceutical sleep agents. First began in-depth research into the neurobiology of sleep and then came the research and development of compounds that specifically addressed the aspects of sleep where breakdowns occur. The final group of compounds considered for use by Hi-Tech in the development of a sleep-promoting product included both "old school" herbs (used in traditional medicines in several countries to promote healthy sleep) and also additional compounds that have surfaced from new advancements in amino acid science (specifically, amino acids used to trigger specific neurotransmitter enhancement). The final formulation was aptly named Sleep-Rx™, which is a Hi-Tech Neuro Enhancement supplement designed to promote and support deeper, more restful sleep. Sleep-Rx™ is an all-natural sleep aid that helps sustain sleep throughout the entire night, without the groggy or hung-over feeling that often accompanies other sleep aids. Sleep-Rx™ promotes and supports relief of occasional sleeplessness, helps with relaxation, promotes a reduction in stress, and helps to ease occasional nervous tension. Sleep-Rx™ is also an ancillary nutraceutical agent to assist bodybuilders and athletes in optimizing their recovery from training during crucial nighttime hours when the body is able to accelerate the progression of anabolic metabolism.
The Sleep-Rx™ formulation includes Valeriana officianalis extract (valerian) standardized for a minimum of 8% valernic acids ("valerian" means "to be strong or healthy" in Latin), which is approved in Europe for its ability to ease nervous tension and assist in restful sleep due to its sedative properties. Valerian exerts its primary mode of action through direct interaction with gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors and also by triggering the release of GABA. Piper methysticum extract (kava) is another sleep-promoting compound in Sleep-Rx™, which, like valerian, also acts on GABA receptors. Kava also blocks the uptake of norepinephrine. This allows kava to contribute to easing anxiety, nervousness, muscle tension, and sleeplessness. L-theanine (N-ethyl-L-glutamine), the source of which is green tea, is another Sleep-Rx™ nutraceutical agent that offers a plethora of beneficial metabolic pathways related to brain function. The higher dosage of L-theanine in Sleep-Rx™, along with its synergistic activity with the other Sleep-Rx™ compounds, allows L-theanine to contribute to the overall relaxation effect provided by Sleep-Rx™. Paeonia lactiflora extract (Chinese Peony), Ziziphus spinosa extract (sour date fruit), and wild lettuce (wild opium), which have all been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for their calming effects, are also incorporated within Sleep-Rx™. Additionally, Sleep-Rx™ contains N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine (melatonin), which is naturally made in the body from 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Melatonin is well-known for its sleep-promoting effects. Its method of action is attributable (at least in part) to regulating circadian rhythms in the brain, which promotes regular sleep cycles.
Don't let sleepless nights get your morning off to a rough start. Sleep-Rx™ will help you fall asleep faster, will work to help you sleep better by promoting sleep throughout the entire night, and you will wake up ready to take on another brand new day. Sleep-Rx™ is the right move against sleeplessness and restlessness!
