TrueZs™ – L-Theanine and Ashwagandha Sleep Supplement
For many of us, a good night’s sleep is sometimes hard to get. Even those who can get the desired seven to eight hours of sleep at night, often don’t wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day.
Sleep science advances tell us it is not just the quantity of sleep that is important – you also have to consider the quality of sleep you’re getting.
Many factors can aid or hinder a good night’s sleep. These include environmental factors such as temperature, lighting, background noise and comfort level.
But equally, if not more, important, are personal factors like stress, anxiety, diet, alcohol consumption, smoking habits, and other influences.
These factors affect how we feel before and during sleep. To assess your sleep quality, you can ask yourself questions such as…
How relaxed am I just before bedtime?
When I wake up at night can I fall quickly back to sleep?
How deep or shallow is my sleep?
When I wake up, am I sufficiently refreshed?
TrueZs™ is designed to help you get to sleep, stay asleep and wakeup non-drowsy.
TrueZs™ features two scientifically studied ingredients that complement each other – the award winning Suntheanine® L-theanine, and a special ashwagandha extract named Shoden®.
With TrueZs™, you can get the sleep support you want, without the morning grogginess and daytime drowsiness sometimes caused by other sleep aids such as melatonin.
Suntheanine® L-theanine – Helps the brain “Relax”
In today’s world, a significant portion of us experience some form of stress in our daily lives.
Since ancient times, drinking green tea has been used to promote relaxation. Modern science attributes the relaxation effect of green tea to the presence of the amino acid L-theanine.
Suntheanine® L-theanine is an award-winning, patented, and scientifically studied ingredient from Taiyo International in Japan. Almost of all of the original published scientific studies, clinical trials, and safety/toxicity studies conducted on L-theanine specifically used the Suntheanine® brand.
Suntheanine® can help you relax and get a better night’s sleep. It can cross the blood-brain barrier and help to increase dopamine and GABA levels in the brain.
This can increase alpha brain waves, which are associated with a relaxed mental state, and decreases beta-waves and theta-waves. Alpha waves are also present during REM sleep, which can promote learning and creates dreams.
These changes in the mental state can help reduce sleep latency (time it takes to go from awake to asleep) and sleep disturbance, and promote better quality of sleep –without daytime drowsiness.
Suntheanine® acts quickly, and its effects on relaxation can be felt within 30-45 minutes.
Shoden® Ashwagandha Helps Support Sleep Quality Throughout the Night
Ashwagandha is a revered herb in the Indian Ayurvedic system of Medicine. Ashwagandha can help support the body’s ability to recover from stress while creating an overall feeling of balance and normalization.
Shoden® Ashwagandha is a high potency extract purified from the leaves and roots of the plant. It contains high levels of glycowithanolides, which are believed to be the key compounds in ashwagandha. Shoden® is grown and processed by Arjuna Natural in India.
Shoden® Ashwagandha has been specifically tested for sleep benefits and helping to reduce non-restorative sleep, which is sleep that has not been refreshing or restorative.
A recent randomized, double blind placebo controlled clinical study on 150 healthy adults aged between 18 and 65 years old, noted the following benefits of taking 120mg of Shoden® daily for six weeks:
- Shoden® may help improve sleep latency (time to fall asleep) and overall non-restorative sleep
- Shoden® may help improve quantity of sleep (total sleep time) and sleep efficiency (time spent sleeping relative to time spent in bed)
- Shoden® may help decrease wake time after sleep onset (WASO), which is the average number of awakenings and average awakening time
- Shoden® may help improve quality of sleep (total sleep time less WASO)
- Shoden® may help improve physical, psychological and environmental quality of life parameters
And like Suntheanine®, Shoden® itself does not cause drowsiness.
Shoden® should be taken on an ongoing basis, as significant results are typically not achieved in the first two weeks.

If I have any coffee I have trouble sleeping, and this is a terrific addition to my sleep routine.
Did not work for me.
Sadly, this product did not work at all to help me sleep, so I went back to taking Gava and Melatonin.
Special #1 - TrueZs
I had to take this for a couple weeks before it really started working. But, once it did I find that I rest longer. With other aids, I would sleep well at first, but wake up and be restless in the early morning hours. With this I sleep nicely until time to rise, and then I wake refreshed, no grogginess. This is a very nice product. It is the best sleep aid I have found.
I’ve suffered from poor sleep for several years. I have read several articles regarding some of the best supplements to take to help with restful sleep, and found that supplements with Ashwagandha are good to take. I began taking a supplement that only contained Ashwaganda. When I saw that Nature City offered a supplement that included Ashwagandha PLUS L-Theanine, I had to try it. I’m so glad I did. It works so much better than the last one I was taking, and I can attest to restful sleep every night. Great product!
