If you are a person who can wake in the early hours of the morning and not get back to sleep again, then Clinicians Sleep Science with ETAS may be just the thing to help you to sleep the night through.

What are ETAS and how can they help those waking around 3.30-4.30am?

ETAS or Enzyme treated asparagus shoot extract is a new clinically proven ingredient to New Zealand that triggers Heat Shock Protein (HSP) production, to balance stress hormone levels.

Heat Shock Protein. What is this?

                   Heat Shock Protein

VF Bioscience tell us

“Stress is a major issue in our modern society, contributing to various psychological disorders such as insomnia, depression and fatigue”.

“Stress induced release of the steroid hormone cortisol also leads to physical dysfunctions; immunosuppression, reduction of bone formation and collagen synthesis, damage to neuronal cells”.

“Heat Shock Proteins contribute to protect our organism against the deleterious effects of stress”.

“HSPs are actually called “stress proteins”, since their expression is induced by physical, chemical and biological stresses such as heat, infections, inflammation, oxidative or UV damage hypoxia.
HSPs are also induced following psychological stress”.

“HSPs exert major cyto-protective functions by assisting in the proper folding of newly synthesised proteins and preventing the loss of conformation of stress-exposed proteins”.

“HSPs also play a crucial role in the negative feed-back system which controls cortisol level.  Activation of the glucocorticoid receptor, which down-regulates cortisol production, requires both HSP70 and HSP90”.

ETAS exerts Anti-stress effect

“ETAS effect on heat shock protein expression and stress-related markers was first evaluated in a mice sleep-deprivation model.  Sleep deprivation resulted in elevations of blood corticosterone and lipid peroxide concentrations, both of which were significantly reduced by concomitant treatment with ETAS”.

“This improvement of stress-related markers was associated with a significant induction of Heat Shock Protein 70 in several organs”.

“In humans, intake of ETAS (100mg daily) also resulted in increased peripheral leucocytes”.

“In a double blind placebo controlled study on healthy male volunteers, ETAS treatment (150mg/day) resulted in a significant lowering of serum and saliva cortisol”.

They go on to say

“Sleep disorders are commonly associated with stress and have a serious impact on daytime functioning and quality of life”.

“A human clinical study has shown the ETAS intake could effectively improve the quality of sleep in people with low sleep efficiency or excess sleep time”.

“It is thought that ETAS can adjust the succession of rapid-eye-movement (REM) and non-REM sleep, leading to better sleep quality and more adequate sleeping time”.
