Proven Active Ingredients
L-Carnitine Fumarate: L-Carnitine is an essential, non-toxic, natural nutrient that helps burn fat for fuel. This form of carnitine known as a highly stable form of carnitine, it donates l-carnitine to shuttle fatty acid and assist in transporting it across mitochondrial membranes into the mitochondria for energy production.
Sicilian Red Orange Fruit Extract (Citrus Sinensis) (Morosil™): Designed to support a healthy body composition, is a solid extract containing all the active substances of Moro Orange Juice: anthocyanins (cyaniding-3-O-glucoside), hydroxycinnamic acids (caffeic, cumaric, ferulic, sinapic acid), flavone glycosides (narirutin, hesperidin) and ascorbic acid. These active compounds have been shown to possess an important activity against fat accumulation and obesity.
Ashwagandha Root Standardized Extract (Withania Somnifera) (5% withanolides) (KSM-66®): Ashwagandha, also known as Withania Somnifera or Indian Ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen that promotes balance in the body. KSM-66® Ashwagandha is the highest-quality ashwagandha extract on the world market today and has been clinically proven to reduce stress, improve memory and cognition, improve sexual performance, enhance sports performance and control weight management.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: Known as The Universal Antioxidant, enhances mitochondrial function with a strong antioxidant effect, supporting the functions of L-Carnitine and promoting muscle cell nutrient intake and protein turnover. Alpha Lipoic Acid also helps shift glucose into muscles and away from fat cells, increasing energy and reducing stored fat.
Grain of Paradise Seed Extract (Aframum Melegueta) (Paradoxine®): A spice belonging to the ginger family that stimulates brown adipose tissue, boosting metabolism and increasing thermogenesis while decreasing visceral fat in the lower abdomen.
Dihydrocapsiate (from Sweet Peppers) (CapsiAtra®): A compound found in CH-19 Sweet Peppers that activates the sympathetic nervous system via receptors in the GI Tract to Increase Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) and Increase Fat Oxidation (Lipolysis).
As a dietary supplement, begin by taking one serving (3 capsules) in the morning on an empty stomach 20-30 minutes before your first meal or protein shake. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily. Do not exceed recommended dose.

Steel Dreams Overview
What It Is
An all-natural, non-habit forming, sleep and recovery aid.*
What It Does
Steel Dreams™ is scientifically formulated to help reduce stress, calm a hyperactive nervous system, and improve sleep quality and duration.*
Proven Active Ingredients
Ashwagandha Root Standardized Extract (Withania Somnifera) (5% withanolides) (KSM-66®): Ashwagandha, also known as Withania Somnifera or Indian Ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen that promotes balance in the body. KSM-66® Ashwagandha is the highest-quality ashwagandha extract on the world market today and has been clinically proven to reduce stress, improve memory and cognition, improve sexual performance, enhance sports performance and control weight management.*
L-Theanine: Found prevalently in tea leaves, L-Theanine is a powerful amino acid that supports brain and heart health, but it’s most commonly used to improve mood and reduce stress. L-Theanine also enhances alpha brain wave activity, which supports mental relaxation, concentration, and deep REM sleep.*
Research has shown that L-Theanine increases the levels, as well as the effectiveness, of GABA, the body’s primary “downer” neurotransmitter.*
Valerian Root Powder (Valeriana Officinalis): The most commonly used herb to induce sleep in both the United States and Europe. Numerous studies and meta-analyses have noted the slumber-inducing botanical to be an effective option for those looking to improve sleep and insomnia without experiencing any adverse side effects.*
One of the primary components within Valerian is a compound called valerenic acid, which has been noted to increases brain levels of GABA, slowing down nerve activity in the brain and generating a calming effect.*
Chamomile Powder (Matricaria Chamomilla) (Flower): One of the oldest medicinal herbs in human history, Chamomile is one of the most popular nighttime teas individuals brew when looking to relax, unwind, and get ready for a restorative night’s sleep.*
The flowers of chamomile are rich if terpenoids and flavonoids, and its believed these phytochemicals are the driving force behind the use of chamomile in the treatment of numerous ailments including everything from muscle spasms to insomnia and even rheumatic pain.*
One of the more prominent flavonoids within chamomile is apigenin, which has been noted to exert mild sedative effects due to its affinity for the benzodiazepine receptors in the brain. As a result of this binding, chamomile exerts a mild depressive effect, soothing a hyperactive CNS, allowing you to unwind in the evening and set the stage for a “productive” night’s rest.*
Lemon Balm Extract (Melissa Officinalis) (Leaf): A lemon-scented herb renowned for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties. Lemon balm is rich in many triterpenes, phenolics, and other volatile compounds shown to increases GABA levels in the brain through its inhibition of GABA transaminase — the enzyme that degrades GABA.*
Research using lemon balm alone or in combination with valerian (also present in Steel Dreams™) notes improved sleep quality in patients who have insomnia. Researchers attributed this enhanced quality of sleep to increased levels of GABA, which promote calmness and relaxation.*
Rutaecarpine: Extracted from the Chinese herb Evodia rutaecarpa, rutaecarpine is an alkaloid noted for its vasorelaxant effect as well as its ability to increase the body’s metabolism of caffeine. Rutaecarpine enhances the speed with which your body processes and excretes caffeine, which is important if you’re one of those people who consume caffeine late in the day and has trouble getting to sleep at night.*
5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) (Griffonia Simplicifolia) (Seed): A metabolite of L-Tryptophan (an essential amino acid, as well as the direct precursor to serotonin — a neurotransmitter/hormone that plays a critical role in mood as well as sleep. However, unlike serotonin which cannot cross the blood-brain barrier, 5-HTP readily crosses it and readily converts to serotonin.*
In addition to its mood-boosting effects, 5-HTP, in combination with GABA-promoting agents (like the ones found in Steel Dreams™) has been noted to reduce sleep latency (the time required to fall asleep) along with improvements in sleep duration and quality.*
Passion Flower Extract (Passiflora Incarnata) (Whole Plant): A botanical for improving sleep and relieving stress. Found throughout North America, Native Americans have long used the flower for its anxiolytic and sedative effects.*
Passionflower is loaded with bioactive compounds including various flavonoids, indole alkaloids, and maltol. Chief among these compounds is chrysin, a flavonoid documented to bind to benzodiazepine receptors and act as an agonist for GABA activity. The result of these actions is that passionflower has an inhibitory effect on the brain, promoting relaxation and alleviating stress. Research using passionflower tea noted it improved subjective measures of sleep quality in adults.*
Venetron® (Rafuma Extract) (Apocynum Venetum L.) (Leaf): Derived from Apocynum venetum L., a shrub of the dogbane family found extensively across China, Venetron® is a powerful standardized extract of the plant containing high levels of bioactive flavonoids, including hyperoside, isoquercitrin, malonyl hyperoside, and quercitrin.
Apocynum venetum has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine as an anxiolytic. One of the flavonoids present in Venetron®, kaempferol, has been shown to be an important anxiety-reducing compound.* Human trials using this new age stress/anxiety relief agent note its safety and efficacy for improving symptoms associated with insomnia, anxiety, and depression.*
Melatonin: A hormone naturally produced by the pineal gland that plays a critical role in our circadian rhythm which regulates our sleep-wake cycles.*
Secretion of melatonin is low during daylight, slowly increasing after sunset, with peak levels generally occurring between the hours of 11 PM and 3 AM. However, melatonin production is stunted by exposure to light, mainly blue light — the same kind of light emitted from your tablet, smartphone, laptop, and tv. The longer you expose yourself to blue light, the more you reduce melatonin secretion, and the more difficulty you have sleeping.
Supplementing with melatonin is a safe, all-natural, and non-habit forming method for enhancing melatonin production in the body, thereby ushering you off to a deep, restorative night’s rest.*
Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate and Calcium Citrate): A mineral that is necessary for life. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium enables our blood to clot, our muscles to contract, and our heart to beat.*
Calcium works together with magnesium (also present in Steel Dreams™) to relax muscles and calm nerves, helping you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.*
Magnesium (as Magnesium Aspartate): A cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.*
One of the main symptoms of insomnia happens to be magnesium deficiency, which is incredibly common in physically active individuals. Research notes that supplementing with magnesium improves insomnia.*
As a dietary supplement, start by assessing your tolerance with two (2) capsules of Steel Dreams™ 30 minutes prior to sleep. After individual tolerance is determined, take one serving (3 capsules) 30 minutes prior to sleep. Steel Dreams™ can be combined with Steel Core® for individuals looking for nighttime weight loss support.*
