Max Sleep what is it and why should you care?
Max Sleep is a supplement that helps you (I’m sure you’ve guessed it…) Sleep! 

Who is it for?
Anyone with the following symptoms:

Does it take you longer than 10 minutes to fall asleep?
Do you wake up frequently at night for extended periods of time?
Do you wake up very early and can never fall back asleep?
Do you feel unrested and lethargic even after you get a full night’s sleep?
Do you have specific body composition and/or performance goals?
Do you train hard?

Max Sleep includes Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6 for it’s base. This combination is commonly known as ZMA. On top of that it also includes L-Dopa which is a precursor to dopamine. Dopamine is essential for sleep, memory, mood, mental functions, and calming the nervous system. GABA the other ingredient has a natural calming effect on the brain and also reduces stress. Too much stress is linked to poor sleep, a weaker immune system, and a higher risk of depression, among other things.


Vitamin B6 (as Pryidoxine HCl) 12.8mg, Magnesium (as Magnesium Glycinate) 150mg, Zinc (as Zinc Aspartate) 30mg, GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) 750mg, Velvet Bean (mucuna Pruriens) Seed Extract 300mg

Take one serving at bedtime to assist with sleep.

Zinc is an essential trace element required for the activity of over 300 enzymes and is involved in most major metabolic pathways. Zinc participates not only in catalytic processes, but also in the structure and stability of some regulatory proteins, as is essential for immune support and testosterone production. Training reduces levels through metabolic use and sweat loss.

Magnesium is the second most abundant electrolyte in the human body and is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions., including all enzymes synthesizing ATP. Deficiency is common in North America due to poor quality mineral levels in soil, dietary intake, and increased demand in athletes.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and norepinephrine. It is integral in improving sleep quality through the synthesis of melatonin through serotonin formation. It can also improve sleep quality through it’s anti-depressant effects of increased dopamine.

GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the human brain; it is responsible for increasing parasympathetic nervous system responses via “sympatholysis”, or inhibition of the sympathetic (Fight or Flight) nervous system. Supplemental GABA has also show to enhance GH (growth hormone) secretion, which is maximized during sleep.

Mucuna Pruriens, better known as Velvet Bean, contains l-dopa, a direct precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine plays an important role in the brain processes that lead to falling asleep and the REM stage of sleep associated with dreaming. Dopamine also increases the activity in the brain centers that regulate sexuality and the production of sex hormones. Athletes that train excessively consume stimulants and anyone under chronic stress will have dopamine depletion, leading to mood destabilization and fractured sleep.
