Zonk is a sleep aid combining natural ingredients and “Yin” amino acids aimed at improving sleep quality by boosting GABA. GABA, standing for Gamma-aminobutyric acid, is one of two main sedative neurotransmitters produced in the body along with Serotonin. Zonk promotes a peaceful and tranquil sleep experience that also improves mental functions, such as memory, cognition and concentration. The two main ingredients, Phenibut and Taurine, help reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress, yet improve mental health performance.
What this product will do for you is:
- Boost natural GABA neurotransmitter levels.
- Increase time spent in REM.
- Awake feeling refreshed and well-rested.
- Reduce symptoms of insomnia and allow you to relax.
- Aid recovery from both physical and mental activity.
Phenibut, otherwise known as phenyl-aminobutyric acid, is a nootropic used to reduce symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia and fatigue. It is made from butyric acid which is a short chain fatty acid/triglyceride found in milk, cheese and butter and has been shown to have many positive effects on improving gut health, whilst stimulating the neurotransmitter GABA.
It is well-documented to have the ability to contribute to feelings of well-being, relaxation and calm, as well even boosting muscular strength. Phenibut reduces signs of anxiety without diminishing cognitive function. Studies show that individuals have better memory function and improved cognitive processing after taking Phenibut due to the phenyl compound attached to the butyric acid which helps it cross the blood-brain barrier.
Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid that has numerous benefits. It is beneficial in treating congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, liver disease, high cholesterol and more. Taurine is also said to improve mental health and athletic performance as well as acts as an antioxidant .
Lotus Leaf extract is an Asiatic medicine, known as “Sacred Lotus” used to treat depression and diabetes in Eastern medicines. Studies have shown Lotus Leaf to have potent sedative properties, and some possible anti-obesogenic properties thus increasing your fat burning potential whilst at rest. More recently, this ingredient showed to help promote the absorption rate and bioavailability of Taurine.
Valerian Root extract is a commonly found natural herb that has sedative andante-anxiolytic properties. Valerian has been shown to enhance GABA thus boosting the sedative effects of the other ingredients.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is one of the bodies most common B vitamins and involved in over 101 chemical reactions. One of its many roles includes the manufacturing of amino acids and neurotransmitters within the body.
