What's In REM Caps and What Do These Nutrients Do?

Valerian Root Extract - Valerian is perhaps the most widely used herb for the treatment of nervousness, stress, anxiety and insomnia. Valerian is also beneficial for improving circulation, treating high blood pressure, reducing mucus accumulation during colds, relieving muscle cramps, and helping to relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Melatonin - Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced and secreted by the pineal gland, a tiny organ in the brain. Melatonin is responsible for regulating the biological rhythms in humans and is an effective aid to alleviate insomnia.

It is also a very powerful antioxidant. One well-known nutritionist has stated that melatonin is "one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered - with a greater range of effectiveness than vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta-carotene..." Another respected nutritionist writes, "melatonin neutralizes one of the most damaging free radicals, and does so five times more effectively than the antioxidant enzyme glutathione..." Due to its antioxidant benefits melatonin has been shown to be a powerful immune system stimulator, with the potential for helping to prevent certain cancers.

5-HTP (5-Hydroxy tryptophan) - 5-HTP is isolated from the seed of a plant called Griffonia simplicifolia and is a natural precursor of the hormone serotonin that, along with melatonin and valerian, helps to prevent insomnia. Along with melatonin, 5-HTP also enhances the release of growth hormone during sleep. In addition, several other low-serotonin-level conditions are aided by the use of 5-HTP:

  • Depression
  • Carbohydrate craving
  • Tension and Migraine headaches
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
Magnesium (as Amino Acid Chelate) - Of the many roles magnesium plays in the body, one of the primary benefits for aiding sleep is that it helps the muscles to relax. Along with the valerian component in REM Caps, magnesium can provide real benefits for anyone suffering from night cramping.

Enzyme Enhancement System™ - (proprietary blend of protease, amylase, cellulase, lipase, phytase) The aging process can deplete/diminish the amounts of digestive enzymes the body produces. Adding enzymes to products works with the body, replenishing what it no longer can provide, and help a person absorb and assimilate the maximal amount possible


Extra Benefits:
One of REM Caps' components, Melatonin, in addition to being a powerful, yet safe sleep agent, is considered by many experts to be one of the most potent antioxidants ever discovered.


The capsules may have a slight odor due to the natural odors emitted from the Valerian Root Extract, which has the smell of a plant root just after it is pulled out of the ground. The product has in no way been compromised and is perfectly safe for consumption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non addictive and works! I have struggled with my sleep patterns my entire life. No matter how much or little I slept I was always tired half the next day. The only times I woke up non drowsey was after binge drinking. I decided to give the REM caps a shot. Every morning when I wake up, I can briefly remember that I was dreaming (never did before), and it only takes me 10-15 minutes to be fully alert vs 3-4 hours that it used to. I forgot to get on and reorder more in time and have gone a few days without them and im back to what I was before I started taking them with no withdrawals or dependency. I just dont feel like I have slept as good without them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm sold on it I was not sure about this for a while. I wasn't sure if it helped at all. At one point I felt I didn't need it and I stopped taking it for a couple of mounts. Then, recently, I started having problems falling asleep and sleeping well. It must be a combination of daily training and stress. Anyway, one evening last week I decided to try one pill as I had nothing to lose. I admit, to my surprise, that I slept through the night, 8 1/2 hours, with the most resting sleep I had in a long time. I now take one every evening and sleep great. After I take a pill it takes about 1.5 hour until I feel my my eyes heavy. Than I know that is the time to hit the bed.
