The sleep/wake cycle is the body’s way of controlling sleep hours vs. waking hours. This process, also known as the circadian rhythm, is controlled primarily by two hormones, melatonin, and cortisol. Melatonin is our sleep hormone, produced at night to induce sleep, and cortisol typically spikes in waking hours to start the day. If these hormones are imbalanced, it’s common to experience trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.
Serotonin deficiency has negative repercussions throughout the body. As a neurotransmitter, serotonin has a role in emotional stability, depression, sleep quality, and impulse control. The essential amino acid L-tryptophan is the precursor for serotonin synthesis but is not easily absorbed by the body when taken in supplemented form. The metabolized form of L-tryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptophan, or 5-HTP can readily cross the blood barrier and produce serotonin. The brain is not the only organ that utilizes L-tryptophan; other tissues grasp the supplemented amount before reaching the brain. Absorption is achievable by combining the B6 vitamer pyridoxal 5-phosphate with 5-HTP to help the body convert the supplement into serotonin. L-Tyrosine and L-Glutamine are amino acids critical in alleviating stress levels and enhancing sleep quality.
Melatonin, the sleep hormone, can be consumed in supplement form to help regulate the circadian rhythm. Other nutrients, like inositol, 5-HTP, and L-theanine, also help the body produce melatonin. 5-HTP can readily cross the blood-brain barrier and create serotonin when combined with vitamin B6. MaxLiving Sleep and Mood Formula contains sleep and mood supporting nutrients to encourage restful sleep and emotional stability.†
Support restful sleep and improve your mood with MaxLiving Sleep and Mood Formula.† Certain factors, like stress, aging, and blue light exposure, may deplete melatonin production, leading to difficulty falling and/or staying asleep and contribute to an emotional imbalance. Our Sleep and Mood formula contains 3mg of Melatonin, which is a hormone produced in the body whose primary function controls the sleep/wake cycle.† Our comprehensive formula supports serotonin's normal production and regulation, an important brain neurotransmitter associated with a balanced emotional state to combat depression, stress, and anxiety.† Serotonin has numerous functions besides regulating mood, including regulation of sleep, appetite, impulse control, and alleviating depression. Our Sleep and Mood Formula contains critical nutrients that correctly help your natural sleep cycle and mood regulatory systems function.† Maxliving Sleep and Mood formula is ideal for individuals looking to promote restful, uninterrupted sleep and support a balanced mood.†

|Our supplement utilizes serotonin precursors derived naturally from the seed of the Griffonia plant.||Supplements that provide L-tryptophan as a precursor are often synthetically derived.|
|As an intermediate substance between tryptophan and serotonin, 5-HTP can cross the blood-brain barrier more readily than tryptophan without competing for preference.||Tryptophan is utilized by many-body systems, which compete for its use when absorbed by the body.|
|A natural sleep supplement that is non-addictive and will not cause drowsiness.||Most sleep products are addictive and result in next-day exhaustion.|
|Encourages relaxation and balances important chemicals in the brain.|
|An amino acid that may be helpful in improving sleep quality.|
|Immediate precursor of serotonin. Effective in the treatment of depression and several other serotonin-related diseases.|
|The bioactive form of vitamin B6, included to help convert L-5-HTP into serotonin.|
|A sleep-regulating hormone produced by the body.|
|An amino acid that alleviates the effects of stress.|
|An amino acid that contributes to stress management and sleep quality.|
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland to promote sleep. Melatonin production can be affected by blue light exposure, night shifts, and aging, resulting in difficulty falling and/or staying asleep. Supplementing with melatonin is a great way to assist the body’s ability to induce sleep naturally. Other nutrients can also encourage the body to produce melatonin, helping to enhance sleep quality further. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, which can be created by the body when L-tryptophan is broken down into 5-hydroxytryptophan and then metabolized into serotonin. As a supplement, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP or L-5-HTP) is taken to support serotonin production. Pyroxidone-5-phosphate is the bioactive form of B6, which helps 5-HTP convert into serotonin which then converts into melatonin. Serotonin is essential for many neurological tasks, including mood stabilization, anxiety regulation, sleep quality, and impulse control.
Our Sleep + Mood Formula is a synergistic formula that encourages restful sleep with melatonin and maximizes serotonin production by containing other sleep and mood-supporting nutrients.
- One study found that supplementation with melatonin helped improve both the duration and quality of sleep.
- Since sleep is essential for all body functions, proper amounts of melatonin also help improve the immune system, digestion, and more.
- Inositol is a substance that can be found in a variety of sources, including fruits, nuts, and beans. Research shows that inositol helps to encourage feelings of relaxation, which is critical for restful sleep.
- One study observed how L-theanine affects sleep. It was found that supplementation with L-theanine immensely helped improve the quality of sleep.
- L-tyrosine has been documented to affect serotonin’s partner substance, dopamine. As a result, the focus was improved, and individuals were better able to switch between tasks.
- L-Glutamine helps the body to break down fat and glucose for energy. These effects partner well with serotonin’s satiety effects, making Sleep + Mood Formula a complementary partner in weight loss efforts.
- 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid produced by the body. 5-HTP generates serotonin, which is, in turn, converted to melatonin.
- Some patients with depression exhibit low levels of 5-HTP. As a supplementary protocol, supplementing with L-5-HTP may help affect serotonin levels to relieve symptoms of depression.
- Serotonin also helps to regulate satiety and impulse control, as an “emergency stop” to over-consuming food. Individuals who consumed a form of 5-HTP as a dietary supplement found that satiety was increased sooner, leading to more effective weight loss efforts.

What else can I do to improve my sleeping patterns?
Sleep quality is connected with the body’s stress levels, whether mental, emotional, or physiological. This is primarily why our Sleep + Mood Formula focuses on cognitive and neurological stability to benefit sleeping patterns. Minimizing stressful situations, exercise, creating a calming routine and atmosphere surrounding sleeping times, and pursuing a lifestyle of a well-rounded diet can improve sleeping patterns.
Will Sleep and Mood make me drowsy in the morning?
Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced in the body, and supplementation with Sleep and Mood should not cause drowsiness.
Are there chemicals or toxins in this supplement?
No. While many tryptophan supplements are chemically synthesized, Sleep and Mood formula utilizes the extract of the griffonia seed.
