What’s in LupaVita PM

LupaVita PM is the first sleep aid for Lupus. Our goal is to help with inflammation while allowing you to sleep the entire night. Plus not be drowsy!

In a study published in 2013 by the Journal of Rheumatology, researchers discovered that patients with lupus had far more problems with sleep than the rest of the population. And it really is a “which came first” scenario, since lupus causes a feeling of incredible, debilitating fatigue as well as these sleep disturbances.We aim to be a before bed vitamin that is aiming to help you sleep throughout the night and reduce inflammation.

Valerian Root

Valerian Root is a safe herb that has been seen to naturally aid with sleep, calm anxiety, lower blood pressure, and improve stress management. By improving GABA levels, valerian makes it easier for both the mind and body to relax. Since relaxation is the antithesis of stress, valerian root is an excellent natural way to help keep your stress down and your quality of life up.

Quercetin

Quercetin (QU) is a kind of natural flavonoids, with lipid-lowering, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Research shows that anti-inflammatory foods containing quercetin can help manage symptoms related to autoimmune disorders like Lupus. Quercetin plays a role in regulating the immune system’s response to outside stressors through cell signaling pathways called kinases and phosphatases, two types of enzyme and membrane proteins needed for proper cellular function.

Iron

Iron deficiency anemia is quite common among lupus patients and the general population, especially young teenage girls and women. Supplementing Iron helps reduce the risk of anemia, inflammation, and iron deficiency.

Magnesium

Magnesium is important for maintaining health in the heart, bones, muscles and nerves. Adding Magnesium to the LupaVita PM formula may reduce the risk of magnesium deficiency. Magnesium levels have also been seen as a marker for disease activity in SLE patients as well.

Ginger

Ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties seem to help relieve pain and improve function for all types of Lupus. The compounds in ginger can function as a COX-2 inhibitor, the same way as common medications for Lupus or Arthritis. Ginger also suppresses leukotrienes (inflammatory molecules) and switch off certain inflammatory genes, potentially making it more effective than conventional pain relievers.

GABA

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is one of the major neurotransmitters, chemicals that brain cells use to communicate with each other. It is the primary inhibitory brain chemical that calms the mind and puts the brakes on brain activity when needed. By inhibiting over-stimulation of the brain, GABA may help promote relaxation and ease nervous tension.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 helps in the production of neurotransmitters, the chemicals that allow brain and nerve cells to communicate with one another. Vitamin B6 is also used as a cofactor of GABA. People with autoimmune conditions, including Lupus, are more likely than others to have trouble getting enough vitamin B6. In a NIH published study of Vitamin B6, a “higher intake of vitamin B6 may prevent the occurence of active disease in SLE.

Boswellia

Boswellia acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory. This is due to its ability to reduce the body’s production of leukotrienes, which promote inflammation. Boswellia has been used to treat lupus, RA, Crohn’s disease, Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. It can also be helpful against gastrointestinal inflammation. People who are sensitive to it may experience stomach upset and diarrhea and acid reflux. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5761198/
