Momentous, a premium sports nutrition company, announces the release of a new product that helps people fall and stay asleep more easily, reduce waking frequency and duration, and improve sleep quality. The network of Momentous elite athletes and coaches was the inspiration behind developing this new formula, as the focus of their recovery goals is consistently centered around achieving high-quality sleep. The company wanted to develop a tool that allowed their team to accomplish this, while also combatting sleep challenges like nighttime games, late workouts, travel, and anxiety, all of which can disrupt circadian rhythms.
“The goal of our products is to help athletes perform their best and recover fully,” said Momentous CEO Matt Wan. “To do so, we continually seek the input of our ambassadors and the most common way for them to recover faster is by focusing on sleep. So we identified research-backed ingredients proven to promote restful sleep, developed a formula, and then rigorously tested this new product. The end result is a supplement that allows athletes to consistently get the best possible sleep they need to perform.”
Momentous Sleep features the ingredient Magtein®, the only form of magnesium proven to cross the blood-brain barrier. This essential mineral promotes cognitive health and contributes to more than 300 other vital bodily processes. The unique formula also contains melatonin, a hormone secreted by the pineal gland that is proven to help overcome schedule-related sleep disruption. The third main ingredient is wild jujube seed extract, which studies show prompt the release of the rest-inducing neurochemicals GABA and serotonin, and help quiet the hippocampus and other brain regions.
As with every offering in Momentous’ line of products, Momentous Sleep received the gold-standard NSF Certified for Sport certification, giving athletes peace of mind that it’s free of banned substances, heavy metals, and other contaminants.
“While I was testing Momentous Sleep, I took it for seven nights straight,” said Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl tight end Kyle Rudolph. “I’ve typically been a good sleeper, especially during training camp when I am exhausted by the time my head hits the pillow. But I noticed that my recovery felt especially dialed in while taking Momentous Sleep.”
