If you’ve been severely LACKING in the sleep department, I bet you’ve ALREADY tried all the “sleep tricks” the mainstream has sold you.
But from meds… to mattresses… and even special pillows and blankets…
You’re STILL not getting the rest you need.
Fortunately, there’s a way to enhance BOTH the quantity AND quality of sleep you get.
It’s a natural way to encourage a healthy sleep cycle… and promote a sense of calmness.
Imagine being able to FULLY unwind… and FINALLY get the restorative Zzzz’s you’ve been PRAYING for…
It’s possible, thanks to the ‘naptime secret’ found in turkey meat AND an ancient African folk cure.
Fall asleep… and stay asleep… with this exotic ‘sleep seed’
Griffonia (Griffonia simplicifolia) grows wild in the tropical Ivory Coast of West Africa… rainforests of Congo… and grassy savannahs of Central Africa.
Technically, it’s a legume… like peas and beans… but it grows to a MASSIVE 10 feet tall!
African folk medicine has relied on the plant for its NUMEROUS health benefits… for AGES.
But the key to unlocking a PERFECT night’s sleep is in its green, dime-sized seeds (which turn black when dried).
Because those little pods are just LOADED with the sleep-promoting amino acid, tryptophan!
That’s right – the same compound that makes you fall asleep after a big turkey dinner on Thanksgiving is ABUNDANT in the seeds of an African shrub!
Now, when you eat tryptophan, your body converts it into ANOTHER amino acid, 5-hydroxytryptophan, or 5-HTP.
You may have heard of 5-HTP before…
It’s one of the most POWERFUL, drug-free sleep aids out there!
And nearly EVERY 5-HTP supplement you’ll find on store shelves is manufactured from tryptophan from griffonia seed.
You get sleepy when you consume it because 5-HTP is an immediate precursor of the “happy brain chemical,” serotonin.
The more serotonin you have, the more your body can produce the “sleep hormone,” melatonin.
Melatonin helps regulate your sleep-wake cycle — to make sure you doze off when the lights go out and wake up when the sun comes up.
In a 2010 study, a formula that contained 5-HTP shortened the time it took patients to fall asleep (a.k.a. sleep latency) — from an average of 32.3 minutes to 19.1 minutes.
It also helped them sleep LONGER… and BETTER.
These findings were confirmed by a 2018 animal study, which showed that 5-HTP helped significantly improve total sleep time… “deep sleep” (which occurs during NREM phases)… and sleep quality.
As an added bonus, 5-HTP also eases anxiety…
And it’s certainly easier to fall asleep when your mind isn’t racing.
Don’t worry – 5-HTP won’t knock you out or leave you feeling like a zombie the next day.
Your body absorbs and eliminates it pretty quickly – so it generally doesn’t last very long in your body.
Just enough to get one restful night under your belt… night after night.
So, you’ll wake up more easily in the morning… and feel less groggy.
You can find griffonia seed extract in powder form or as an ingredient in an oral “sleep spray.”
But why not leapfrog over tryptophan and go straight for a 5-HTP supplement?
It doesn’t mix well with antidepressants that also increase the amount of serotonin in your brain – like SSRIs or MAO inhibitors – but otherwise, it’s incredibly safe.
According to research, you can take up to 400 mg nightly for up to one year without a problem.
However, a more standard recommended dosage is 200 mg before bedtime.
