Many different factors can interfere with a good night's sleep, such as inflammation and body pain, swelling and pressure, headaches, a feeling of over-stimulation and mental exhaustion, and the inability to enter a state of deep sleep. One or more of the following processes might be at play: immune system issues, mineral imbalances, cortisol output (stress and adrenal glands), thyroid and hormones, serotonin, GABA and melatonin levels, ammonia, acetaldehyde or lactic acid build-up, or even one's ratio of Lysine to Arginine.* In order to narrow down on the best product to support a good night's sleep, it is important to understand the cause of sleeplessness.
One common cause of sleeplessness today is the immune system. The endocannabinoid system involves an important part of the body's immune functions, which are related to spasms, swelling, and pain-sensation.* CBD GOLD contains naturally occuring cannabinoids. These cannabinoids act on the endocannabinoid system, making it a powerful product for promoting minor pain relief, and supporting a good night's sleep.*
On the other hand, Slumber-EZ is Lidtke's most complete formula for sleep. It addresses seven different factors that cause sleeplessness, including low GABA, low Magnesium, low serotonin and melatonin, and the Lysine to Arginine ratio.* By providing L-Tryptophan, Slumber-EZ promotes the production of 5-HTP, serotonin, and ultimately melatonin.* It also contains thiamine and niacin which are involved in the production of GABA.* The magnesium in Slumber-EZ comes in two forms: Magnesium Glycinate chelate and Magnesium Taurinate chelate, providing additional Glycine and Taurine. Both of these amino acids have also been shown to enhance sleep.*
Various factors can interfere with the production of 5-HTP from L-Tryptophan, which is why some of our customers find plain 5-HTP will enhance their sleep even beyond what L-Tryptophan does for them.*
One of the primarily ingredients in MemorEase is phosphatidylserine, derived from sunflower, a natural ingredient that helps block harmful effects of cortisol.* For any sleeplessness that is caused by cortisol output, MemorEase, even though it is a wonderful product for memory, is also a wonderful product for sleep!*
