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.
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!*
