Life Extension Enhanced Natural Sleep with Dual-Action Melatonin is a
natural sleep aid. The consequences of sleep deprivation go far beyond
the miseries of fatigue and diminished performance. Decades of clinical
research document that a good night's rest supports nearly all systems
of the body, including:
- Skin health and youthful appearance
- Healthy collagen formation
- Insulin levels already within normal range
- Healthy body weight
- Glucose levels already within normal range
- Blood pressure already within normal range
- Healthy cell division
- Cardiovascular health
- Good mood
Scientists attribute sleep-related difficulties to the unprecedented
levels of stress most of us endure in today's fast-paced world.
To add insult to injury, sleep quality and duration decline as we
grow older-at a time when we need the health benefits of a good night's
rest more than ever.
To combat the profound impact of chronic sleep debt on health and
youthful appearance, Life Extension now offers Enhanced Natural Sleep
with Dual-Action Melatonin. This new formula brings together three
clinically validated, natural compounds that have been shown to support
healthy, restful sleep, promote healthy response to stress, while
targeting sleep debt-related factors associated with skin aging. The
three ingredients are:
1. Bioactive Milk Peptides (Lactium) is a cutting-edge nutrient
complex consisting of patented bioactive peptides found naturally in
milk. Used widely in Europe to promote sustained and restful sleep
patterns, published studies reveal that these bioactive milk peptides
also promote relaxation, help with stress and support daytime cognition.
A group of 60 women reporting a variety of sleep-related difficulties
experienced as much as 65.6% improvement in their symptoms with 150
milligrams per day of these bioactive milk peptides. In another study,
the same 150 milligram dose induced substantial improvements across 27
markers of sleep quality and stress response in 165 healthy adults. And
in a third study, a group of healthy men and women taking 150 milligrams
per day of these bioactive milk peptides for one month experienced a
50% improvement in sleep quality after two weeks and needed 30% less
time to fall asleep after 4 weeks.
2. Melatonin (very low dose). Melatonin levels naturally decline with
age and adversely affect sleep patterns in many people. Both immediate
and timed-release melatonin has been shown to support restful sleep. So
much so that time-release melatonin has been licensed since June 2007 in
Europe and other countries for the short-term treatment of sleep
3. Sendara. A proprietary nutrient complex consisting of ashwagandha
and Indian gooseberry extracts. Prized in traditional cultures for their
ability to promote healthy skin function and appearance, these
plant-based compounds have since gained substantial clinical validation.
Indian gooseberry provides broad-spectrum antioxidant support and has
been used to preserve youthful skin health and appearance in many skin
care products. Ashwagandha promotes a healthy response to stress,
yielding 62% reductions in anxiety compared to placebo with just 125
milligrams per day in one clinical study.
Enhanced Natural Sleep with Dual-Action Melatonin should be taken 30-60 minutes before bedtime to help with sleep.
