Why Melatonin Doesn’t Help You Sleep + What To Take Instead
Magnesium bisglycinate, the lead mineral ingredient in the formula, is a combination of magnesium and the amino acid glycine. Studies have identified glycine improve sleep quality and neurological function2while magnesium, an essential macromineral, supports our circadian rhythm and is clinically shown to calm the mind and body, promoting relaxation and sleep.*
In addition to magnesium bisglycinate, Sleep Support+ also includes zizypus seed extract, a fruit long used in traditional Chinese medicine, as well as PharmaGABA®, a natural form of the amino acid neurotransmitter. Both ingredients have been found to help people fall asleep faster — and sleep longer — so this special blend is a no-brainer.*

The unique combination of Magnesium Bisglycinate, Zizyphus and PharmaGABA® promotes relaxation and calmness and helps maximize the quality of my sleep,” she says.
