Sept. 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA—Los Angeles based pharmaceutical company Alexso, Inc. announced today the release of a new drug designed to relieve insomnia, anxiety and depression, Somnicin™

Somnicin™ was designed by pharmacists and health care professionals to help promote effective sleep through a combination of ingredients that are all naturally-occurring within the body: Melatonin, 5-HTP, L-tryptophan, Vitamin B6, and Magnesium. Individually and as a compound, all are known for their properties to combat insomnia and anxiety. Somnicin™ is non-habit forming unlike many conventional medications such as Ambien, Lunesta, flurazepam, or temazepam, Somnicin™.

Dr. Hootan Melamed, Pharm D, principal and founder of Alexso, Inc. emphasized the importance of getting a good night’s sleep for improved overall health, “A good night’s sleep is proven effective for promoting healing, pain relief and good mental health. Many will benefit through the use of Somnicin and over a short time will notice the improvements to their lives. At Alexso, we are dedicated to helping people by creating natural compounds to alleviate many of the side effects that the stresses that are caused by everyday life.”

Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone that is produced in the pineal gland and is found in both plants and animals. Fluctuating levels of melatonin correspond to the body’s circadian rhythms which control the body’s awake/sleep cycles. Adding melatonin supplements to the daily regimen helps correct, stabilize and normalize circadian rhythms that have been disrupted.  These disruptions are often caused by jet lag, irregular work schedules, and other activities such as having a newborn in the household.  In addition, melatonin also reduces the time it takes to fall asleep.

¬¬5-HTP (5-hydroxytrptophan) is a naturally-occurring amino acid precursor that helps increase levels of serotonin in the brain. In addition to helping to relieve insomnia, 5-HTP is beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of primary fibromyalgia syndrome, depression and anxiety.

L-tryptophan is one of the 20 standard amino acids that occur in the human body. Playing a key role in the synthesis of many neurotransmitters, L-tryptophan is a key component in many bodily functions. While studies have shown it to be useful as a sleep aid, it does not cross the blood brain barrier as well as 5-HTP.

Magnesium acts as a vasodilator which helps relax the smooth muscles and increases blood flow.

Vitamin B-6, a key ingredient in Somnicin™, plays an important role in the metabolism of its other ingredients. Vitamin B-6 is essential to red blood cell formation which increases blood oxygen levels resulting in more restful sleep. Additionally, B-6 is essential in activating the body’s production of serotonin and also helps alleviate bothersome nocturnal leg cramps.

There are few adverse reactions that occur with Somnicin™, including nausea, headache, abdominal cramps, fatigue, or dizziness. Somnicin™ also contains multiple ingredients that may interact with other medications, particularly MAO-inhibitors and SSRI’s among others. Patients who are taking these drugs should consult their physicians before taking Somnicin.

Dr. Melamed, commenting on the founding principles and goals of Alexso, Inc., “Alexso’s goal is to provide physicians with products that they can dispense with confidence and without the worry of potentially harmful side effects,” continuing, Melamed added, “We are proud to be forward-thinking in an arena that is traditionally to be slow to change. With the assistance of the numerous physicians we work with, we will continue to develop new innovative products that run parallel to the ever-changing environment of pharmaceuticals”.

Dr. Melamed holds dual licensure in both California and Nevada. In addition to seeking to improve lives through pain management, Melamed is also the founder of Skyy Holdings, Ltd., and New Age Pharmaceuticals, Inc. All three companies are headquartered in Beverly Hills, California.
