Montmorency Tart Cherry,
50:1 concentrated ratio (CherryPURE®), 500 mg

Montmorency tart cherry is the richest natural source of melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland that helps improve sleep time, quality and efficiency. Melatonin works by regulating circadian rhythm:

  • Darkness stimulates melatonin release, allowing its mildly sedating, sleep-inducing properties to take effect;
  • Light inhibits melatonin, which signals for the brain to wake up

Supplemental melatonin optimises this dark-light/sleep-wake cycle, helping to:

  1. Induce faster, easier sleep onset;
  2. Establish and maintain healthy, consistent sleep patterns;
  3. Support sleep onset when melatonin release has been synthetically disrupted by nighttime use of light-emitting electronic devices.

Most sleep supplements use synthetic melatonin. Performance Lab® Sleep’s natural tart cherry-sourced melatonin is superior – supplying a minimum effective dose for optimal sleep benefits without the morning grogginess and brain fog sometimes associated with synthetic sleep aids.

In addition to supplying melatonin, Montmorency tart cherry supplies anthocyanin antioxidants, which have inflammation-modulating activity that helps promote night-time muscle and joint comfort – further supporting sleep quality and optimal nightly regeneration.


About CherryPURE®

The Montmorency variety of tart cherry is the richest botanical source of melatonin. CherryPURE® is a pure, premium, 100% natural and additive-free Montmorency tart cherry powder concentrated to a 50:1 potency. Performance Lab® Sleep’s 500 mg of CherryPURE® supplies the equivalent nutrition found in a 25g serving of Montmorency tart cherries.

L-Tryptophan for Melatonin

L-Tryptophan for Melatonin:

L-Tryptophan works together with tart cherry to optimise sleep hormones: It effectively raises serotonin levels, which in turn stimulates the pineal gland’s production of melatonin.

Magnesium (from Magnesium Bisglycinate 300 mg, Magnesium Taurate 200 mg, BioGenesis™ 200 mg), 100 mg

The essential mineral magnesium is a cofactor in hundreds of life-sustaining bioactivities, including several that help with falling asleep and staying asleep. Magnesium works by:

  1. Calming excitable nervous system impulses that are transmitted across neuromuscular junctions;
  2. Supporting the soothing muscle relaxation that precedes sleep onset;
  3. Directly relaxing vascular smooth muscle cells, supporting the gradual drop of blood pressure that precedes sleep;
  4. Blocking neuromuscular transmission and reducing acetylcholine activity, helping with sleep-disruptive involuntary muscle twitches and periodic limb movements.

Ongoing sleep problems have been linked to magnesium deficiency. Performance Lab® Sleep’s advanced magnesium matrix restores this key mineral and all its benefits for deep, regenerative sleep.

About Performance Lab® Sleep Magnesium

Plain magnesium is only 30-40% bioavailable. Performance Lab® Sleep addresses this concern by supplying three advanced, high-absorption magnesium forms:

  • Magnesium Bisglycinate is a chelated form bound with glycine (another sleep-supportive amino acid), to protect the mineral from stomach acids, enabling greater absorption in the intestines.
  • Magnesium Taurate binds magnesium together with taurine, an amino acid that promotes the relaxing and calming brain chemical GABA for additional sleep onset support.
  • BioGenesis™ Magnesium is our proprietary magnesium grown on lab-cultured probiotics, producing a nature-identical mineral form with enhanced bioavailability.

Magnesium + L-Tryptophan for Serotonin:

Magnesium serves as a cofactor in the conversion of L-Tryptophan to serotonin, a key brain chemical for relaxation, melatonin release and sleep.


L-Tryptophan (TryptoPure®),
250 mg

Stress and mood imbalances are major sleep disruptors. Poor sleep quality then leads to daytime irritability – creating more stress that worsens sleep patterns further. The amino acid L-Tryptophan helps break this unhealthy stress-sleep cycle with versatile mood and sleep support, working by:

  1. Converting in the brain into 5-HTP, which then converts into serotonin: an important brain chemical for positive mood, relaxation, and sleep;
  2. Converting into melatonin in the GI tract while also optimising the pineal gland’s natural production of melatonin.

As it promotes synthesis of these complementary, sleep-supportive brain chemicals, L-Tryptophan promotes a bright mood in the daytime, calm sedation at bedtime and normal circadian rhythm to maintain healthier sleep patterns over time.

About Performance Lab® Sleep Magnesium

Is Performance Lab® Sleep work?

Performance Lab® Sleep is designed to optimise several sleep-related body systems and bioactivities. It relaxes the muscles, nervous system and mind to help you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

As it supports regenerative sleep phases and healthy sleep cycles over time, Performance Lab® Sleep optimises tissue repair, cell renewal and healthy function across all body systems.

Most importantly, Performance Lab® Sleep helps you wake up feeling energised and refreshed, without the grogginess associated with some synthetic sleep aids.

Is Performance Lab® Sleep safe?

Like all Performance Lab® supplements, Performance Lab® Sleep is designed to be safe for long-term daily use. Performance Lab® Sleep is an effective, non-habit-forming sleep aid, made with pure, potent ingredients that are dosed appropriately and in line with clinical research. Performance Lab® Sleep’s clean formula design – free of GMOs, gluten, soy, colourants, preservatives and other additives, further supports tolerability and safety.

How long does Performance Lab® Sleep take to work?

Performance Lab® Sleep may be taken before bedtime; it induces slumber quickly by supporting mind-body relaxation and comfort. Ongoing supplementation with Performance Lab® Sleep supports healthy, consistent circadian rhythms that support restful sleep patterns and contribute to overall health.

Why is Performance Lab® Sleep magnesium listed as 100mg only, when the sources listed appear to supply much more magnesium?

Performance Lab® Sleep uses three forms of magnesium, each of which are complexed with complementary nutrients including glycine, taurine and magnesium cofactors that help the body utilise the mineral more efficiently.

Although the magnesium sources in Performance Lab® Sleep are listed as 700mg, the total elemental magnesium content is 100mg, with complementary support nutrients comprising the remainder.

Why doesn’t Performance Lab® Sleep supply melatonin?

Performance Lab® Sleep does supply melatonin; it is just not listed as such on the label. Typical sleep support supplements often supply a dose of synthetic melatonin.

Performance Lab® Sleep is different: It supplies Montmorency Tart Cherry – one of the richest sources of natural melatonin – while also supporting the pineal gland’s natural production of melatonin.

This design efficiently raises melatonin via two pathways and fits our philosophy of using natural ingredients whenever possible.
