There’s no way around it. No matter how hard you train or how well you eat, you won’t grow if you don’t recover. Recovery is one of the keys to muscle growth and one of the keys to recovery is deep, restful sleep. If you consistently fail to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll experience the destructive effects of catabolic hormones such as cortisol. What are these negative effects? Two examples are muscle loss and potential fat gain.

GABA – 750 mg
This is a non-protein amino acid that acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This means that it helps to reduce feelings of anxiety and promotes relaxation, which is critical to being able to fall asleep every night. Often used as a sleep aid, research indicates it also stimulates GH release.(1,2)
L-Tyrosine – 750 mg
Tyrosine is a very popular cognitive enhancer that increases levels of the neurotransmitters noradrenaline and dopamine. Increased levels of these neurotransmitters improve mood and focus while relieving feelings of anxiety as well as stress.(3)
