Portal Supercharged Non-habit Forming Sleep Aid
Portal has come out with a new, natural sleep-aid called Portal Dream: an effective non-habit forming approach to sleep aids. The Portal Dream formulation utilizes a combination of natural compounds that are both safe, effective, and don't cause a habit forming reliance. I addition, it comes in a delicious chamomile flavor.
What is unique about Portal Dream?
Unlike most over the counter sleep aids, portal dream is non-habit forming. This is one of the key differentiators between Portal Dream and other products. Habit forming ingredients like melatonin and phenibut affect the body's natural sleep hormone balance, causing a reliance and product dependence. This leads to unintended side effects and ultimately more sleep problems down the road. Portal dream solves this by utilizing magnesium, glycine, l-theanine, and apigenin (from chamomile): all proven to be safe long term. These products together have a unique synergistic effect to promote faster time to fall asleep, as well as staying asleep throughout the night.
What does magnesium do?
Magnesium is an excellent sleep aid, shown in many studies to promote relaxation by promoting the body's natural levels of renin, melatonin, and decreasing serum cortisol levels. By utilizing the body's own mechanisms to illicit sleep signals, magnesium is a popular and safe ingredient for sleep aid. It has been statistically shown to decrease sleep onset latency and early morning awakening.
What does glycine do?
Glycine is an effective sleep promoter by way of facilitating proper thermoregulation during sleep. Lowering body temperature in a gradual and consistent manner is important for sleep onset and restful sleep. This is why it is recommended to decrease the room temperature at night, as the body must be allowed to cool to enter a restful state. Glycine has been shown to play a role in this function via vasodilation of peripheral vasculature, allowing the body to shed heat and cool its core temperature.
What does L-theanine do?
L-theanine, combined with magnesium, has been shown in multiple sleep studies to promote GABAergic activity, increase sleep related slow-brain waves, and improve sleep latency. It has a synergistic effect with magnesium to cross the blood brain barrier and induce these affects in less than 30 minutes after ingestion.
What does apigenin (chamomile) do?
Apigenin is an extract from the chamomile flower. It is a highly studied compound that has been shown in many in vivo studies, using both animal and human models, to promote many of the primary sleep related factors in the body. It exists as a natural bioactive flavone-type compound, a biologically active compound found naturally in plants that can promote and effect many different signalling pathways in the body. It is able to interact with many different targets promoting sleep, and acting as a potent antioxidant.
