Insomnia, stress, and anxiety are almost too common in modern day life. With information coming at us from all directions it can be difficult to wind down and relax in the evening and catch up on restorative sleep. Taking a look at classic traditional medicines just might be the solution to modern problems.
Xylaria nigripes are a not so commonly discussed and hard to find species of mushroom that grow underground. They have been used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for centuries as a way to support wake and sleep cycles.
With these benefits in mind the ingredient manufacturer NuLiv Science utilizes patented fermentation technology to grow xylaria nigripes mycelia and produce a proprietary extract known as Zylaria™.
Zylaria contains many essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, glycoproteins, glutamic acid, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and decarboxylase that have been shown in clinical studies to support improved sleep quality and promote relaxation. Glutamic acid supports the uptake of GABA to specific brain cell receptors and exerts a calming effect on the central nervous system that can help with feelings of anxiety and stress. Glutamic acid in xylaria nigripes also promotes metabolism, protein synthesis and transmission of stimulative signals in the brain and is closely related to the concept of long term potentialization (LTP) potentially supporting brain health, learning, and memory.
Human and animal trials indicate that xylaria nigripes had sedative effects and induced peaceful sleep in tested subjects. When used over time it reduced the time needed to fall asleep and prolonged sleeping time. 90% of test participants felt their sleep quality improved, much improved, or became symptom free.
Instead of knocking you out like many other potential sleep aids the nutrients in Zylaria promote a more calming state leading to more relaxed sleep, elevated mood, and sense of well-being without grogginess and brain fog.
This uncommon mushroom extract just might be the missing puzzle piece to recovery and relaxation.
