Sleep is an absolutely essential component of exercise recovery and muscle growth. Being able to sleep deeply and consistently through the night is tied to many critical bodily functions including stress control, body fat, muscle soreness, and hormone levels, to name a few.
This is why the body has the greatest potential for anabolism during sleep. Most other processes are shut down, and the important, muscle-building processes that are normally not prioritized come to the forefront. This is the inspiration for Anabolic Coma.
To have a deep, restful, and recuperative sleep while also activating anabolic factors for maximal muscle growth.
- Essential vitamins and minerals to promote proper sleep.*
- GABA and phenyl-GABA trigger sedative processes in the brain to hasten sleep latency and improve sleep quality.*
- Contains amino acids responsible for the formation of serotonin and growth hormone to improve REM sleep and recovery.*
- Ashwagandha decreases anxiety and promotes anabolic hormone status.*
- L-Theanine takes the edge off of any lingering caffeine from earlier in the day*
If you’ve ever wanted to be like the proverbial “sleeping giant,” Anabolic Coma is for you. Not only will you be able to fall asleep fast and stay asleep, you will be activating multiple growth factors all at the same time!
One serving of Anabolic Coma before bed will increase REM sleep and dream capacity. And by dream capacity, we mean you will need to start dreaming bigger, because your size and recovery goals will be achieved! Sleep BIG with Anabolic Coma.

Chromium is a trace mineral used by the body to digest food, enhance insulin receptor function, and increase frequency of dreams.
- Helps reduce blood glucose by increasing binding of insulin to its receptor on cell membranes.
- Chromium supplementation helps control body weight by enhancing satiety.
- A study in the Journal of Nutritional Medicine reports that study participants experienced increased dream frequency and intensity while supplementing chromium ( Schrauzer et al., 2009)
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin with many roles in health. Americans often have inadequate vitamin D intake.
- Inadequate vitamin D is associated with disturbed sleep patterns and symptoms of poor sleep.
- Vitamin D supplementation has been observed to reduced the time required to fall asleep as well as increase sleep duration (Huang et al., 2013).
- Large bodies, whether from obesity or muscle, tend to have sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea may be correlated with low levels of vitamin D.
A mineral and electrolyte, magnesium is involved in metabolism, protein synthesis, and ATP generation.
- Magnesium deficiencies increase blood pressure and insulin resistance.
- Supplementing with magnesium can promote muscle relaxation as well as increases in testosterone levels.
- Participants supplementing with magnesium have found enhanced sleep quality and reductions in overnight cortisol concentrations (Held et al., 2002).
Zinc is an important mineral that is needed for many enzymatic reactions to occur as well as muscle protein synthesis.
- Zinc supports testosterone production and may increase testosterone levels after exercise and while sleeping.
- Zinc deficiencies are related to low IGF-1 and GH.
- The role of zinc in the central nervous system involves regulation of sleep, and zinc supplementation studies show that it enhances amount and quality of sleep (Cherasse and Urade, 2017).
4-Aminobutanoic Acid (GABA)
GABA is an inhibitory, amino acid-based neurotransmitter. It is the most important neurotransmitter for relaxation.
- Stimulation of GABA receptors (such as with GABA) promotes relaxation and rest.
- Supplementation with GABA increases concentrations of growth hormone.
- Athletes sleep quality may be enhanced by GABA supplementation.
Tryptophan is an amino acid, and the L isoform is the most biologically active. For sleep purposes, tryptophan is a direct precursor of the sleep aid, 5-hydroxytryptophan, which can become serotonin.
- Identified as a natural sedative as early as 1970.
- Reductions in dietary tryptophan decrease duration of REM sleep.
- Supplementation with L-tryptophan reduced the number of time study participants awoke at night and increased the duration of REM sleep (Nicholson, and Stone, 1979).
Nelumbo Nucifera is a flower more often referred to as Indian Lotus with many bioactive polyphenols, such as catechin and cyanidin.
- Nelumbo is capable of regulating serotonin receptors, which may enhance sleep.
- Sedation effects of Nelumbo have been documented in rats to be equally effective as Diazepam.
- May reduce appetite and decrease food intake.
Theanine is an amino acid that is not one of the 20 common to the human diet. Theanine is unique in its effects to relax without increasing sleepiness.
- Commonly used to take the edge off of caffeine and other stimulants. May help with relaxing and falling asleep at night after caffeine consumption during the day.
- Promotes relaxation and restfulness while decreasing anxiety.
- Also enhances mental relaxation, to increase focus and improve learning.
Glycine is another amino acid with roles in sleep regulation that promote more recuperative sleep. Glycine is also involved in growth hormone formation and secretion.
- Glycine dose-dependently increases GH secretion and helps control pituitary function.
- Consumption of glycine before bed results in decreased feelings of fatigue while increasing clear-headedness and wakefulness.
- Reductions in glycine receptor stimulation or function decrease REM sleep and promote REM sleep behavior disorder.
Lysine is an essential amino acid required to the synthesis of growth hormone.
- In combination with arginine, lysine is able to increase growth hormone production.
Ornithine is another amino acid that is capable of stimulating growth hormone secretions.
- Promotes sleep duration and quality after alcohol consumption.
- Decreases cortisol levels, perceived stress, and anger levels.
- Capable of increasing acute growth hormone pulses.
Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid with several roles beneficial to improving exercise recovery and muscle growth.
- Supplementation with arginine has been observed to increase blood GH levels, which peak 1 hour after consumption (Collier et al., 2005)
- May have potentially enhanced function when combined with ornithine or lysine.
- Studies suggest arginine enhances blood flow and exercise performance.
Huperzia Serrata Extract
Huperzia Serrata provides Huperzine A, and acetylcholinesterase inhibitor that increases total acetylcholine.
- Helps to decrease acetylcholine degradation.
- May improve memory, cognition, and dreaming. There are anecdotal reports of lucid dreams after huperzine and choline supplementation.
- Examinations of acetylcholine in the forebrain show that acetylcholine release is increased during REM sleep compared to when awake (Vazquez and Baghdoyan, 2001).
Ashwagandha is one of the most popular herbs used worldwide for a number of reasons, including reduced stress and enhanced athleticism.
- Participants supplementing with ashwagandha for 8 weeks reported over a 50% decrease in anxiety as well as improvements in concentration, vitality, and quality of life.
- Males subjects using ashwagandha over 2 months experienced enhanced muscle mass and strength gains, potentially due to increased testosterone levels, which increased by almost 100 ng/dL.
- Enhances sleep quality, even if supplemented during the day.
Similar to huperzine, choline bitartrate increases choline and acetylcholine levels. Acetylcholine may then promote deeper sleep.
- Cholinergic stimulation in the brain stem tripled REM sleep duration in one study (Datta et al., 1991)
- Mothers with high choline intake reduce cortisol levels in their children.
- Low choline status is correlated with greater anxiety levels.
Inositol is a sort of pseudovitamin present in fruits and grains. It has functioned as a neuromodulatory agent capable of reducing anxiety and depression.
- Supplementation with inositol is efficacious for decreasing anxiety and panic disorders in otherwise healthy participants.
- Individuals with eating disorders due to stress report decreased anxiety and obsession when taking inositol.
- May help with weight control and improve heart health.
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid with a vital structural role in neurons as well as memory and cognition.
- Participants supplementing with phosphatidylserine have been observed to remain calmer during stress.
- Enhances cognition, as demonstrated by several supplementation investigations.
