HIBERN8 is a powerful sleep formula that helps to easily fall and stay asleep. It promotes deep and restful sleep. By doing so it supports nighttime
recovery of mind and muscles. Waking up refreshed in the morning increases mood, productivity and is essential for achieving optimum physical
strength and appearance.
With the wide-spread use of energy drinks, fat burners and pre-workout supplements, stress at work and at home, deep quality sleep can be very
hard to come by. HIBERN8 is clinically dosed and starts working the very first time you take it. Just one serving of HIBERN8 is all that you will need
to achieve deep uninterrupted sleep. Try HIBERN8 tonight and wake up refreshed, recovered and ready for more!
The relationship between Magnesium and sleep has been studied fairly extensively, and there appears to be a two-way correlation, with Magnesium helping to correct sleep-related issues in some studies, and inadequate sleep reducing Magnesium levels as well.
A 2002 study, published in “Pharmacopsychiatry”, found that Magnesium was able to increase slow-wave (deep) sleep and reduce Cortisol levels, thus normalizing age-related changes in sleeping patterns in elderly subjects. These results were replicated in a 2002 study from “Public Health Nutrition” in older (59 give or take 8 year old) subjects with inadequate dietary Magnesium intake.
Overall, while Magnesium may not be particularly effective in individuals with high (more than adequate) dietary intake, it can certainly improve sleep quality in those whose diets are lacking. Hibern8 contains about 50% of the RDI for Magnesium, a sufficient dose for normalizing any deficiency-related sleep issues.
GABA is the primary inhibitory (downer) neurotransmitter in the brain, as opposed to Glutamate which is the primary excitatory (upper) neurotransmitter.
Hibern8 contains 1000mg of GABA, a higher dose than we normally expect to see in sleep-aid supplements.
Tryptophan is an amino acid that, in addition to helping build proteins, acts as a precursor to 5-HTP (a direct precursor to Serotonin). Tryptophans potential as a sleep-aid has been known for quite some time, with most of the studies being performed 20-30 years ago. The results of most studies indicate that Tryptophan can increase drowsiness and decrease sleep-latency (time it takes to fall asleep).
Hibern8 contains 500mg of Tryptophan per serving, a fairly sizeable dose that may very well help reduce sleep latency, adding the effects of Melatonin.
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, found in the brain. It is heavily involved in the sleep-wake cycle (by causing drowsiness when secreted). Due to its role in promoting sleep, supplemental melatonin has been used to correct and treat mild sleep disorders, as well as by people who experience mild sleeplessness. All evidence suggests that melatonin works very well when it comes to promoting sleep, but quality of sleep is more difficult to record. A 2004 study, published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, found that melatonin significantly increased REM sleep in subjects who suffer from lower than normal REM sleep durations. Several other studies have demonstrated the ability of Melatonin to increase REM sleep duration, as well as decrease sleep latency (time to fall asleep).
Overall, Melatonin may be very useful as a sleep aid, and may increase REM sleep, especially in those experiencing REM deprivation, to some extent. Effective doses range from .5-5mg with not much evidence to suggest efficacy is dose-dependent. That being said, Nutrex has opted for the high end of that range, and has included 5mg of Melatonin in the Hibern8 blend, helping to ensure that it will put you right you to sleep.
