THE solution for a quality sleep!
By : Beyond Team
Whether you're looking to boost your immune system, optimize your body composition, enhance your physical performance or recovery, the benefits of sleep are one of the most overlooked factors responsible for improving your overall health. Proper sleep is key in physically active individuals. Since sleep doesn’t limit itself to a specific number of hours, you must also experience quality, deep and uninterrupted sleep while following a steady schedule. AminoZzz is the first all-in-one recovery formula combining amino acids and sleep, which is formulated to allow your mind to slow down at the end of a hectic day, while also providing your body with all the amino acids needed for an overall optimal recovery.
AminoZzz contains 5g of vegan essential amino acids, ideal for boosting overall recovery, protecting lean muscle mass and stimulating muscle growth. These amino acids are also combined with stress-reducing ingredients that prepare the body for a deep, uninterrupted night of sleep, like GABA, ZMA, L-Theanine and melatonin.
Here is a quick breakdown of each ingredient in order to fully grasp the key benefits of this great product.
Formula containing 5g of essential amino acids
You can think of amino acids as protein building blocks. An essential amino acid, or EAA, is an amino acid which cannot be synthesized by the body itself. They’re called essential because they can only be received through nutrition or supplementation. In total, there are 9 essential amino acids, while three of those key for recovery are called BCAA, short for branched chain amino acids. EAA L-Leucine is particularly important because of its ability to induce muscle protein synthesis and recovery. Here is a brief analysis of each amino acid contained in AminoZzz as well as their respective mechanisms of action in the body.
First of all, BCAA.
- L-Leucine: often called the “master” amino acid because it is the most efficient at activating mTOR, an anabolic muscle building pathway which induces muscle protein synthesis, growth and recovery. Leucine also helps regulate blood sugar levels, heal injuries and boost growth hormone release, which can help maintain, build and repair healthy tissue. Leucine also strengthens the skin and plays a key role in bone and muscle function and growth.
- L-Valine: one of three BCAA compounds able to promote muscle growth and tissue repair.
- L-Isoleucine: remaining BCAA used in hemoglobin synthesis, regulation of blood glucose and support towards optimal energy levels.
Next up are the essential amino acids;
- L-Lysine: plays a key role in growth, tissue repair and nutrient absorption. This compound is used to make up carnitine, a natural substance used for fats to be transported across cells in order to be burned as energy.
- L-Threonine: used to form or synthesize protein in the body. Essential in collagen, elastin and tooth enamel formation, as well as connective tissue production. Furthermore, L-Threonine helps maintain bone and liver health while keeping your immune system in check.
- L-Phenylalanine: plays a role in amino acid synthesis. Also a precursor to important hormones like dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine.
- L-Methionine: sulfur-containing amino acid helping skin strength and elasticity, also promotes healthy hair and nails. Methionine also helps the detoxifying process by efficiently excreting heavy metals.
- L-Tryptophan: involved in protein synthesis. It acts as a precursor to the neurotransmitter called serotonin and the hormone named melatonin. L-tryptophan is also used to help treat insomnia, sleep apnea, depression and anxiety.
Now that the recovery aspect has been addressed, sleep induction and stress reduction are next on our list.
First of all, AminoZzz contains 750 mg of GABA (also known as Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid). GABA is considered a non-protein amino acid that acts as a chemical messenger in the brain. It regulates brain and nerve cell activity by inhibiting the number of active neurons in the brain, which makes it a natural calming agent. GABA promotes relaxation and reduces nervous tension by inhibiting sensory overload of the brain.
Secondly, AminoZzz contains 200 mg of L-Theanine. Theanine is another natural non-protein amino acid found primarily in green tea. Theanine acts similarly to glutamic acid which promotes relaxation by reducing stress and anxiety levels. It is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and increases alpha waves, which are associated with a state of intellectual relaxation.
Please note that this product also contains 260 mg of ZMA. ZMA is often sold as a stand-alone natural mineral supplement consisting of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6. ZMA improves sleep quality, immune function and recovery. How come? Here's why!
First, the ZMA combo contains 150 mg of Magnesium. This ingredient is involved in many processes that affect muscle function, including oxygen uptake, energy production and electrolyte balance. Mineral deficiencies are common in today's population, but especially in people who exercise frequently, as sweating and physical stress deplete mineral stores. Magnesium supplementation also improves sleep and promotes physical and mental relaxation.
Next up is 100 mg of Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine. Vitamin B6 is one of the eight B vitamins your body needs to maintain optimal health. Vitamin B6 is an essential component of nearly 200 chemical reactions in the human body and is needed for several processes, such as neurotransmitter production, immune function and blood circulation.
The final ingredient in ZMA is 10 mg of Zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties involved in hundreds of functions. It plays many roles in antioxidant enzymes, brain function and the immune system. Zinc is commonly taken for its immune function, but zinc consumption is also an excellent sleep aid, as it helps promote uninterrupted sleep and has a calming and antidepressant effect. In addition to helping regulate sleep, zinc has been shown to improve the vividness of dreams.
Finally, after ZMA, an ideal dose of 5 mg of melatonin was added to AminoZzz. This goes without saying, as no sleep supplement would be complete without melatonin! Melatonin is a neurohormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain and is responsible for regulating sleep. Light suppresses the synthesis of melatonin, which is why you should always sleep in a dark environment. Melatonin is used as a supplement to regulate sleep disorders. It works by reducing the time needed to fall asleep, improving the quality of sleep and increasing its duration. In addition, short-term use of melatonin has not been shown to negatively affect natural melatonin production after you stop using it.
Who is this product designed for?
Now that we’ve told you all about science, you’re probably wondering “what the target audience is as far as AminoZzz is concerned?”. The short answer to this question is simple: this product is made for everyone! But those who will benefit the most are people who exercise regularly and know the benefits of recovery and how vital sleep is to optimize overall health. In addition, AminoZzz is great for people who regularly travel to different time zones or those who have irregular sleep schedules, such as people who work night shifts.
It really is the perfect formula for high performance athletes or anyone looking to boost recovery and maximize sleep. From the athlete to the average person looking to build muscle. From the high-stress business executive to the student who needs sleep to perform at their best.
AminoZzz is the perfect evening cocktail. With all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the brain is usually extremely active when it's time to go to bed. For many people, it can be very difficult to relax your mind when it's time to go to bed, which is precisely why AminoZzz is such a beloved product. The synergy of relaxing ingredients combined with essential amino acids gently eases the mind and prepares the body for deep sleep, while offering the peace of mind that you are getting all the essential nutrients needed for recovery.
Not only will you fall asleep faster, but you'll also wake up rested and ready to start the day with a sharp mind, without the dreaded heavy feeling associated with some sleeping pills.
