DR Sleep Factors - L-theanin & Glycine
L-theanin is an amino acid found exclusively in tea leaves. It aids to promote relaxation, reduce intermittent awakening and counteract caffeine-induced sleep disturbances.
Glycine is an amino acid found in high protein foods such as meat, fish, dairy products and bone broth. In human, glycine is insufficiently synthesized and supplementation is critical to maintain optimal health. Glycine aids to improve sleep quality, reduce overactive liver functions at night which may interrupt sleep and also support liver, heart and kidney health to promote restful sleep.
