Dr. Huberman recommends: Magnesium, particularly Magnesium Threonate or Bisglycinate as the best form of magnesium for crossing the brain-blood barrier, to promote relaxation and sleep.
Dr. Huberman recommended dose: 145mg Magnesium Threonate or 200mg Magnesium Bisglycinate.
Thirdzy's formula: Contains 250mg of Magnesium Bisglycinate per serving, aligning with Dr. Huberman’s advice.
Dr. Huberman recommends: Theanine for its calming and anti-anxiety effects.
Dr. Huberman recommended dose: 100-400mg. **Advises against use for people who have night terrors or sleepwalk.
Thirdzy's formula: Includes 200mg of L-Theanine, falling in the middle of Dr. Huberman's recommended dosage.
Dr. Huberman recommends: Taking glycine several nights per week. It has been shown in a number of studies to improve multiple markers of sleep quality.
Dr. Huberman recommended dose: 2g (2000mg).
Thirdzy's formula: Includes 10g of collagen peptides. Collagen is ⅓ glycine, so our 10g provides ~3g of glycine, offering a generous amount daily. Taking glycine in this form is a more ‘food based' approach to getting glycine compared to pure glycine supplementation. Collagen has additional benefits including joint health, anti-inflammatory properties, and supporting muscle recovery after exercise.
Dr. Huberman recommends: Using GABA several nights per week for its calming effects and potential for improved sleep quality.
Dr. Huberman recommended dose: 100mg.
Thirdzy's formula: Thirdzy goes a step further with a solid 300mg of GABA in its formula, aiming for a strong calming effect.
Dr. Huberman recommends: Apigenin, which is an extract from chamomile. However, he cautions against women using apigenin as it has been shown to have estrogen-suppressing effects.
Dr. Huberman recommended dose: 50mg.
Thirdzy's formula: Does not contain apigenin. We opted to leave out this ingredient in order to have a functional sleep supplement that was appropriate for both men and women to use nightly.
As you can see, our PM Recovery Collagen has heavy overlap with Dr.Huberman's recommendations - both in the specific ingredients included and their dosing.
We bundle all of these key supplements into a single serving, making it an easy and cost-effective choice for nightly support of your best sleep and recovery.
