Sentra PM™ for the Management of Sleep Disorders
Associated with Depression
Sentra PM™ is a Medical Food formulated by practicing physicians to meet the nutritional requirements for inducing sleep, promoting restorative sleep, and reducing snoring in patients who have sleep problems associated with depression.
Sentra PM™ provides the amino acids that are precursors to the neurotransmitters that have been depleted in humans, neurotransmitters that induce sleep, promote restorative sleep, and reduce snoring.
Nutritional Deficiency Associated with Sleep Disorders
Patients with sleep disorders experience a nutritional deficiency of tryptophan, choline and GABA. Patients with these sleep disorders have reduced blood levels of serotonin and 5-hydroxytryptophan. Reduced calorie diets that are frequently reduced protein diets, result in a further fall in blood tryptophan, and exacerbate sleep disorders. There is an alteration of tryptophan metabolism in patients with sleep disorders. Choline deficiency is associated with sleep disorders particularly those associated with sleep apnea syndromes.

Side Effects: The side effect profile of Sentra PM™ is comparable to the rate of food intolerance in the community. The ingredients of Sentra PM™ are derived from nutrient based compounds found in the normal food chain. Food intolerance is an adverse reaction to food that does not involve the body's immune system. When first starting any amino acid therapy, some people complain of mild headaches, stomach upset, or mouth dryness. These symptoms are mild and temporary and can be managed by drinking plenty of fluids and carefully titrating the dose. Rarely, some individuals feel jittery or over-stimulated. These side effects are relieved by lowering the dose. Sentra PM™ should not be taken by patients who are receiving MAO inhibitors.
