Do you lie in bed at night tossing and turning trying to fall asleep? Do you fall asleep only to awaken in the middle of the night and not go back to sleep? REM-8.0™ by Formutech Nutrition will help you sleep all night, waking up feeling refreshed and recovered.*
Sleep is essential to rest your body and restore energy levels. However, sleep is an active state that affects both your physical and mental well-being. A good night's sleep is often the best way to help you cope with stress, solve problems, or recover from illness. REM-8.0™‘s sleep formula prepares your body for maximum gains and full muscle recovery, combined with life-balancing, mood-enhancing, uncompromised REM sleep.*
Too Little Sleep May Cause:
REM-8.0™‘s sleep aid formula will help you stay asleep and feel well rested. REM-8.0™ will also help build stronger bones, bigger muscles, leaner bodies, more alert minds, better sex, and better sleep.*
4-amino-3-phenylbutyric acid (PheniBut) is a GABA derivative known for its ability to reduce symptoms of anxiousness and sleep difficulties.*
While not directly affecting your adrenal glands, GABA can be a valuable part of your adrenal fatigue recovery. This amino acid helps to reduce anxiety and what has been called ”swirly brain”– that feeling that you can’t focus on any one thing because there's so much going on in your head. GABA is great at bedtime too, when you just can’t “turn your brain off”.*
Quercetin helps to calm the body's inflammatory response to stress and is great for allergies.*
L-Phenylalanine is a simple, yet essential, amino acid that we need for nerve and brain function. Doctors in the US have used L-Phenylalanine as a treatment for depression and mood elevation and found it effective by it's ability to elevate neurotransmitters. It also appears to help with memory, alertness and concentration.*
L-Phenylalanine also assists in the production of thyroid and adrenal hormones. These are essential in allowing us to cope with stress. Having no adrenal hormones is like having no booster rockets when you need to get out of trouble or having no ability to bounce back when down. It’s the most common cause of that all too well-known syndrome of burnout.*
It has been shown that free form amino acids in the small intestine, especially L-Phenylalanine, can trigger the release of a hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK). This hormone causes an increased stomach emptying and an interaction with the feeding centers of the brain, telling them “enough already”! Since the brain and your stomach hold an ongoing conversation about what’s happening inside the digestive system, you stop eating!*
5-HTP is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. There is a massive amount of evidence that suggests that low serotonin levels are a common result of modern living. The lifestyle and dietary practices of many people living in this stress-filled era results in lowered levels of serotonin within the brain. As a result, many people are overweight, crave sugar and other carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pain.*
Vinpocetine is a plant extract nutritional supplement that has been extensively studied in Europe. These clinical studies have found it to increase memory enhancement, increased cognitive performance, improved cerebral circulation and higher mental acuity and awareness.*
Watch out with this product, as it can leave you feeling sleepy and weird the next day if you do not get more than 10 hours of sleep. 1 scoop and it affected me for 12-13 hours. Cut down to 3/4 of scoop and it is better. You do get deep sleep, but be warned, do not take the night before something requiring metal focus the next morning.

The product is around 2g of carbs, has added Vitamin B6 and Zinc/Magnesium. Basically a ZMA Product on Formutech's line that has added Pheinbut (Nootropic), Gamma Acid (to aid in sleep), Maca magnesium, L-Phenylanine (Another nootropic), and 6-hydroxytryptophan, which all aid in fat burning and for fatloss, basically a ZMA/Burner mixed into one product to aid in losing fat and also bumping up Zinc/Magnesium levels if they are in deficit from your overall diet (for the most that is not the case) this is a very simple and effective formula that is cost effective on the market so it will sell hence why i gave it 5 stars for a very simple and easy formula plus a decent price for what you are getting in their prop blends. No problems with this product at all. Recommend it.

Awesome supplement. My daughter is 14months old so I struggle with sleep at the best of times but into my second tub and this stuff is still working great. Deep, restful sleep and even when mini Al wakes me up, I get back to sleep better and quicker. Came off it for a week and no withdrawl symptoms. This is a must-have for anyone serious about recovery and struggling with sleep.
