Sleep Essentials Plus is a harmoniously balanced multivitamin complex for supporting restful sleep and the relaxation of nerves and muscles, plus melatonin to shorten the time needed to fall asleep. The 19 select bioactives, including plant extracts, essential oils, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, complement each other as precursors and cofactors of melatonin and neurotransmitter synthesis for healthy nerve and muscle function and protection from oxidative damage.
This unique formula offers more than the average multi-nutrient complex. Our first priority is to ensure every single ingredient is naturally sourced. Where this is not possible, we use an ultra-pure pharmaceutical grade alternative or a natural fermentation process to obtain a bioidentical compound. Other multi-nutrient complexes often contain cheap, ready-made mixtures of synthetic substances and questionable additives such as artificial preservatives, sweeteners and fillers.
The bioactive phytomelatonin, meaning melatonin of plant origin, is derived from a gentle extraction of St. John's wort using only water and food grade ethanol and is therefore absolutely free of toxic extraction residues.
The carefully selected plant extracts and powdered essential oils of Baikal skullcap, ashwagandha, hops, lemon balm, passionflower, lavender blossom and hemp seed are derived using only water and/or food grade ethanol or a gentle CO2 extraction process. The plants' valuable phytochemicals are therefore extracted without the use of chemical solvents such as N-hexane or acetone. The KSM-66® Royal ashwagandha extract, with the highest content of withanolides available, is derived exclusively from the plant's roots and retains their full withanolide spectrum. Our hemp seed extract contains 20% natural C'B'D and the full phytochemical spectrum, allowing for the synergistic entourage effect. The bioactive L-theanine is extracted from green tea (Camellia sinensis) via an ultra-pure extraction process which prevents any residues. The lemon balm extract is obtained exclusively from the nutrient-rich leaves via a patented extraction process and standardised to at least 15% hydroxycinnamic acid and 7-12% rosmarinic acid. All plants are sourced from pesticide-free cultivation.
The amino acids glycine, taurine and GABA are all highly bioavailable and in ultra-pure pharmaceutical grade or naturally sourced and non-GMO. No additives are incorporated into any of the ingredients in this product.
Vitamins B6 and B9 are included in Sleep Essentials Plus in their bioactive forms: pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) and L-methylfolate (Magnafolate®Pro), respectively. Vitamin B12 in the form of highly bioavailable methylcobalamin, our own vegan vitamin D3, magnesium oxide for steady absorption through the small intestine, as well as sodium selenite, inorganic and bioavailable, round off the balanced formula.
For the capsule shells we use custom-made HPMC capsules that, unlike most other HPMC and pullulan capsules on the market, are 100% free from controversial additives such as carrageenans and PEG. We then package this product in environmentally friendly amber glass.
