What exactly is REM Sleep?
There are 4 Stages of sleep. During SWS 1-3 there is little to no increase in metabolic difference. Then there is the almighty REM Sleep also referred to as The Metabolic Activator. Studies have shown during REM Sleep our body can use just as much energy (glucose & calories) if not more while in REM Sleep than awake.
The REM-P.M.™ line up Valeriana Officinalis Root Extract (Valerian Extract)
Valerian is a popular alternative to prescription medications for sleep problems because it is considered to be both safe and gentle. (1) Some studies show that it helps people fall asleep faster and feel that they have better quality sleep. (2)
Scientists believe Valerian increases the amount of a chemical called gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. (3) GABA helps regulate nerve cells and has a calming effect on anxiety. (4)
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body’s circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour that plays a critical role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up. When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin; when it is light, the production of melatonin drops. Being exposed to bright lights in the evening or too little light during the day can disrupt the body’ s normal melatonin cycles. For example, jet lag, shift work, and poor vision can disrupt melatonin cycles.
Studies suggest that melatonin supplements may help people with disrupted circadian rhythms (such as people with jet lag or those who work the night shift) and those with low melatonin levels to sleep better. A review of clinical studies suggests that melatonin supplements may help prevent jet lag.(5)
Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA)
GABA, or Gamma Amino Butyric Acid, is the most abundant inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. While GABA is an amino acid, it is classified as a neurotransmitter and helps induce relaxation and sleep. (6)
Gamma Amino Butyric Acid also stimulates the anterior pituitary, leading to higher levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). (7) Human Growth Hormone contributes significantly to muscle growth and also prevents the creation of fat cells. (8)
L-Tryptophan Ethyl Ester
The body uses tryptophan to help make serotonin. Serotonin is thought to produce healthy sleep and a stable mood. (9)
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means your body cannot produce it — you must get it from your supplementation or diet.
L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell. Studies do show that oral carnitine reduces fat mass, increases muscle mass, and reduces fatigue, which may contribute to weight loss. (10)
Green Tea (98% polyphenols, 50% EGCG)
EGCG is derived from Green Tea. While EGCG is stimulant free it has been shown to decrease appetite & promote fat loss.
Scientists at the University of Chicago’s Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research have found that a major chemical component of green tea (EGCG) caused test subjects to lose up to 21 percent of their body weight.
Test Subjects injected with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) derived from green tea leaves lost their appetites and consumed up to 60 percent less food after seven days of daily injections.
YES THAT’S RIGHT – LOST UP TO 21% OF THEIR BODY WEIGHT & CONSUMED 60% LESS FOOD AFTER 7 DAYS!
The study published in the March 2000 issue of Endocrinology, reports that Test Subjects injected with EGCG for just a few days experienced significant changes in the blood levels of several hormones, including leptin. “This result was significant because previous research has shown that leptin is involved in controlling the appetite,” says Liao, “but the result was very unexpected.”
When Liao injected normal test subjects with EGCG, their leptin levels in the bloodstream went down. This should have caused the test subjects to eat more. Instead, they ate less (11).
Phosphatidyl-serine (PS) is a naturally occurring phospholipid nutrient that is most concentrated in organs with high metabolic activity, such as the brain, lungs, heart, liver, and skeletal muscle.
PS has been shown to improve a variety of brain functions that tend to decline with age (12). In recent studies, PS has been shown to enhance mood in a cohort of young people during mental stress(13).
PS has been demonstrated to speed up recovery, prevent muscle soreness, improve well-being, and might possess ergogenic properties in athletes involved in cycling, weight training and endurance running (14).
PS has been reported to be an effective supplement for combating exercise-induced stress and preventing the physiological deterioration that accompanies too much exercise.
Ginkgo Biloba shows promise for enhancing memory in adults. Laboratory studies have shown that ginkgo improves blood circulation by dilating blood vessels.
5-hydroxy-tryptophan (5-HTP) is a compound created in the body which is used to regulate serotonin levels in brain and central nervous system.
Medical journals and reviews it is only proven that 5- HTP helps improve moods and may aid in weight loss, improve sleep patterns.
L-alpha glycerylphosphoryl-choline (GPC), a by product of phosphatidylcholine, and helps to boost acetylcholine. The GPC form of choline has been shown in studies to help protect against cognitive decline normally seen in aging.
How to take REM-P.M.™
You can take REM-P.M.™ with or with out food. We suggest taking ONLY 1 concentrated capsule for the first few days to assess your tolerance then go up from there. We’ve found taking your dose of REM-P.M.™ within 20-30 minutes of your desired sleep time works best.
If you are trying to sleep better – try cutting out all stimulants (caffeine drinks, tea, pre-workouts.. etc) within 6 hours of going to bed. If there is still a little stimulants in your system – REM-P.M. will help relax you into a deep sleep.
Does this stuff work? Is it better than ZMA?
Tune in I’ll tell you!
They have a verrrrrrrry strong yohimbe like smell! Must be the
Valeriana Officinalis Root Extract (Valerian Extract).
Took one last night: slept from 1:30am till 6am straight then woke up, but my alarm was set for 6:20 so I didn’t make it all, but I had a big day, so I was anxious!
We will see tonight how it works:
It says take 30 min before bed, it took me an hour and I started yawning bad!
But it took me a while after that to fall asleep.
Today I started my Super HD, I took one pill, tomorrow I will bump up to 2-3 pills, so that will be the real test for REM PM!!
Still sleeping not too bad, better than usual, but not great, probably should use 2 pills a day, (but I won’t) not getting groggy anymore… When first taken I felt it hit hard about 30-40 min after taking it, I would get groggy and start yawning. That awesome effect to tell me hey dummy close your eyes! Has since stopped… I miss it 😭
When this is done, I will try Animal PM and see which is the best PM supplement!! They both have a similar formula. However, Rem is 1 pill, vs Animals multi pill.
Now, here is why I don’t like Animal, they have, Animal Pak, flex, pm, omega, test and others… Most are multi-pill formulas!
If you take cuts for fat-burn, omega for healthy fats, flex for joints and pm that’s about 20pils or so a day, your liver is going to have a heart attack and it doesn’t even have a heart!!
Rem lost its effectiveness… Now I feel it does nothing for me! However, I found a better way to test it! ….enter the Jawbone UP!
I am waiting to hear from Jawbone about reviewing the Up! A sports band similar to the Nike Fuel, but it actually does something beside having pretty lights and being a $150 inaccurate pedometer!
Check out the Jawbone Up! Here on this site!
