PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Primary Ingredients Sentra PM is a proprietary formulation of of amino acids and other dietary factors to support induction, maintenance, and enhancement of the specific neurotransmitter activity involved in the physiology of SD. The formulation consists of Choline Bitartrate, Cocoa Extract, Glutamic Acid, Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL, Whey Protein Isolate (Milk), Dextrose, Ginkgo Biloba, Hawthorne Berry, and Griffonia Seed. These ingredients fall into the classification of Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) as defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act).
A GRAS substance is distinguished from a food additive on the basis of the common knowledge about the safety of the substance for its intended use. The standard for an ingredient to achieve GRAS status requires not only technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, but also general recognition of safety through widespread usage and agreement of that safety by experts in the field. Many ingredients have been determined by the FDA to be GRAS, and are listed as such by regulation, in Volume 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Sections 182, 184, and 186. Amino Acids Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and are GRAS listed as they have been safely ingested by humans for thousands of years.
The formulations of the amino acids in Sentra PM are equivalent to those found in the usual human diet. Patients with sleep disorders may require an increased amount of certain amino acids that cannot be obtained from normal diet alone. Tryptophan, for example, is an essential amino acid. The body cannot make tryptophan and must obtain tryptophan from the diet. Tryptophan is needed to produce serotonin. Serotonin is required to induce sleep. Patients with sleep disorders have altered serotonin metabolism. Some patients with sleep disorders have a resistance to the use of tryptophan that is similar to the mechanism found in insulin resistance that is genetically determined. Patients with sleep disorders cannot acquire sufficient tryptophan from the diet to establish normal sleep architecture without ingesting a prohibitively large amount of calories, particularly calories from protein. Other Ingredients Sentra PM contains the following “inactive” or other ingredients, as fillers, excipients, and colorings: Gelatin, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, lac-resin, carmine.
