Explore the science behind GABA’s role in promoting relaxation and enhancing your sleep. Wake up refreshed with the power of GABA!

One of the many effective ingredients used in our sleep product, Relaxium Sleep, is GABA. So what is GABA? How can it help improve your sleep quality? Keep reading and we will explain! It is so important to understand the ingredients used in products meant to alter your sleep schedule. 

What is GABA?

Gamma-aminobutyric acid, otherwise referred to as GABA is a neurotransmitter. To give a brief background, a neurotransmitter is a chemical substance that acts as a messenger in the nervous system. This specific neurotransmitter helps to regulate brain activity as well as promote relaxation. Now this is key to why GABA is used in our sleep supplement. GABA actually has the capability to reduce active neurons in the brain, making the body feel more relaxed and ready for sleep. 

As millions of Americans struggle to get the necessary sleep for their overall well-being, our Clinical Neurologist Dr. Eric Ciliberti saw the need to develop Relaxium Sleep. Relaxium Sleep is a sleep supplement designed to help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and have you waking up feeling refreshed and alert. 

The need for a safe and effective sleep aid was crucial because we need sleep for:

  • Energy 
  • Brain functions
  • Management of stress
  • A functional immune system
  • A healthy cardiovascular system 
  • Muscle repair 
  • The balance of blood sugar
  • To maintain a healthy weight

We use 100 mg of GABA in our product because of its ability to relieve anxiety, get better sleep, and relax. Not to mention its ability to reduce levels of cortisol, helping with stress. 

The importance of knowing the ingredients 

There are thousands of sleep aids on the market. Many will market themselves as the best option for sleep. A lot of the time though, these products are short-term relief. This is where we come in because we provide products that promote sustainability. 

This is also why we are so open about the ingredients we use in our products. When habits such as sleep are going to be altered, it is important to know what is going into your system. This is why we wanted to highlight GABA! 

You should always look into the specifics of a supplement before use. Being prepared is most important. 

How can GABA help improve sleep quality?

From the research that has been conducted, it can be inferred that GABA is an effective ingredient when seeking better sleep. This is due to its ability to:

  • Reduce anxiety and stress
  • Initiate sleep
  • Increasing the duration of sleep
  • Influence sleep architecture

Reduce anxiety and stress

Have you ever experienced difficulty sleeping due to constant stress or anxiety? Well, you aren’t alone! Unfortunately, stress and anxiety are very common among people in the U.S. and even globally. The American Institute of Stress reports that “33 percent of people report feeling extreme stress, 77 percent of people experience stress that affects their physical health, 73 percent of people have stress that impacts their mental health, 48 percent of people have trouble sleeping because of stress.” 

These numbers are staggering. Not to mention the global statistics which don’t provide much more relief seeing that “80 percent of people feel stress at work,” and “Stress is the number one health concern of high school students.” 

Knowing this, the reason GABA is said to reduce anxiety and stress is because of its ability to promote calm and relaxing feelings, bettering sleep. 

Initiate sleep

One of the hardest things to do for some is finally starting to fall asleep. For those who suffer from sleep disorders especially, this task is extremely difficult if not impossible. Those who suffer from insomnia struggle with this as well because insomnia makes falling asleep and staying asleep very difficult. 

In order to start to fall asleep, the body and heart need to slow down so you are able to focus on sleeping; which the brain is responsible for. With GABA’s ability to relax the brain, the body can start to prepare for its initial stage of sleep/falling asleep. 

Increasing the duration of sleep

Another huge problem for many is staying asleep. External factors such as loud noise, street lights, or even pets can cause disturbances, affecting sleep. 

These disturbances can throw off an entire night’s sleep. Because GABA can help to reduce brain activity, disturbances are minimized, helping to achieve a better night’s sleep. 

Achieve a longer, more relaxing night’s sleep after taking a supplement like Relaxium Sleep. 

Sleep architecture

There are 4 different stages that the body enters while falling asleep. These include:

  • Stage 1: Light sleep, many with drift in and out of consciousness. Muscle activity will slow down and eye movements are minimal. 
  • Stage 2: A decrease in muscle activity, the body relaxes, and heart rate and body temperature decrease. Random bursts of brain activity. 
  • Stage 3: Slow-wave sleep; slow, synchronized brain waves. It is the deepest and most restorative stage of sleep. 
  • Stage 4: REM (Rapid eye movement) sleep. This stage is where dreams are most vivid and eye movement is most rapid. 

GABA can help to influence these sleep patterns and stages. It particularly helps during stages 3 and 4 of sleep where the body is in its most restorative and deep sleep.
