The Sleep Aid market somehow became a bodybuilding & fitness real supplement category over the last 12 months, with every major brand introducing a product. You can check out our top 10 list for sleep & recovery supplements which keeps on getting updated as new products are released. And now, a new sleeping aid is coming in play, and it comes from Marc Lobliner’s MTS Nutrition. The new Machine Sleep Aid has announced not too long ago, but enough information about it was revealed for us to give our opinion.
12 ingredients. That’s what MTS Nutrition put in the Machine Sleep Aid. It has a combination of some pretty common ingredients with pretty unique ones. What’s best about this label is all the ingredient are fully transparent and fully dosed. This label is big, so bear with us.
To start of, we have the vitamin and minerals category that are here mostly for recovery and repairing processes. We’ve got 2mg of vitamin B6, 30mg Calcium and 32mg Magnesium. To be honest, that part is not that interesting, but we thought is was worth mentioning. The rest is where the good stuff is.
3g GABA – Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), the rising star of the sleeping aid supplements. It acts as a depressor for the nervous system, allowing you to fall asleep way faster than you normally would. 3g is a hefty dose and we off to a very strong start!
200mg Valerian Extract – This herb extract is the natural form of a sleeping pill. It aids with sleeping disorders and improves sleep quality. It also help with reducing anxiety.
200mg Ashwagandha Extract (KSM-66) – The KSM-66 is another herb extract. This herb helps with reducing stress levels and fatigue.
130mg 5-HTP – 5-Hydroxytryptophan. Don’t even try…known more commonly as 5-HTP is an african plant that is known to help with sleep disorders such as insomnia, depression and anxiety. The dose here is on the low side but with the combination of everything else it should be ok.
50mg Chamomile Extract – That is one of the more unique ingredients in the Machine Sleep Aid. Chamomile is a well researched ingredient in effects on sleep. It was found to promote sedation, induce sleep and diminish anxiety.
50mg Lemon Balm Extract – Lemon Balm is known to be used since as far as the Middle Ages. It was used to reduce stress and anxiety and promote sleep. Another unique ingredient.
50mg Hops – Hops are commonly used in the making of beer, but they also have a long history of use as a medicine. The effects on sleeping were discovered when workers worked with hops tended to fall asleep on the job more than usual. Now that’s a background story for you….:)
150mg L-Theanine – L-Theanine is a well-proven ingredient. It is mostly used as a mood elevator, putting the body in a very relaxed, calm state. In some studies it was found to even increase the quality of sleep.
Melatonin 3mg – We saved the best (and the ‘standard’) for last. Melatonin, the must have ingredient in any sleeping formula that looks to compete in the market, Yeah, we know, we should have started with this is a well proven popular ingredient that helps maintain sleep cycles.
That was quite the label we’ve been through right here. To wrap it up, we can truly say that this looks like a very complete sleeping formula. From the diversity of ingredients to the doses, looks like MTS Nutrition did a very good job. Worth mentioning that this reads as a 100% sleep aid & stress relieve ‘pure play’, compared to some of the competition which brings in a mix of recovery and better sleep (again, check out our top 10 list)
30 servings for $39.99 is the launch price. Definity on the high side compared to other sleep aid products, but you guys already know that MTS is a premium brand. And that’s why you should always compare prices on the fitness deal news price comparison engine!
We’ve got something to look for in the Machine Sleep Aid. Although we’ve seen a complete recovery & sleep formulas, Machine Sleep Aid should take things off your mind and get you to sleep. Which well, I guess that’s why it’s called Sleep Aid.
