5% Nutrition has done it again, launching a stacked supplement to help with the most serious athlete, bodybuilder, powerlifter, and gym goer get the most out of their workout. However, Knocked The F*ck Out takes a completely different approach as 5% Nutrition puts a high focus on high quality sleep leading to a high-quality recovery.
Within this product 5% Nutrition has loaded it with 12 key ingredients not only to put you to sleep but also make sure you are getting the best cycles of sleep to help improve one of the most overlooked aspects of recovery and that is sleep.
Imagine your body as a machine or a computer, everyday you need to completely shut down these systems to reset and update to work at full potential the next day or use. 5% has taken this same approach with your quality of sleep allowing the best reset sleep for you body to grow, recover, and attack the next day with your fullest energy and intent.
5% Nutrition Knocked The Fu*k Out Ingredients
To start 5% Nutrition has supplied you with 750mg of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). GABA known as an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it has a calming effect on the nervous system. The main function of GABA is to reduce the excitability of nerve cells, promote relaxation, and help reduce anxiety. This helps lead to promoting better restful sleep at night rather than just putting you to sleep. You can find dosing of GABA in a wide range of usage per day with some research saying you can take up to 3g a day, however only taking it in doses at no more than 750mg per dose, just as 5% gives you in this formula.
Up next 5% Nutrition gives us another ingredient to help support stress, mood, relaxation, and mental alertness. That is L-Tyrosine an amino acid that helps with the production of neurotransmitters in the brain, which will work great hand in hand with GABA also presented in this formula. In this ingredient profile, 5% has given us a safe but effective dosing of 750mg per serving as the usage of L-Tyrosine dosing’s is mostly dependent on one’s body weight. Recommendations have shown ranges of usage between 500mg to 1,500 mg able to use per day.
Tasting better than your usual nighttime sleep tea, 5% Nutrition enhances this formula with the natural flower Chamomile. Chamomile has been used for thousands of years and normally found in many over the counter herbal teas to help promote stress, relaxation, mood, and digestive support. Dosed at 650mg in this formula to help promote these benefits, there has been no standard dose for chamomile, however in studies you may find the usage of 900-1,200mg usage daily.
Inositol otherwise known as Vitamin-B8, plays a role in various bichemichal processes in the body, including the regulation of neurotransmitters. Inositol has thought to have a calming effect on the nervous system which will help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation to help get you to sleep. Dosed at 500mg, this ingredient is another dependent on how much you may take daily as some research has said it has been found you can safely take take 1-4g daily.
Adding in a more simple but natural ingredients, we find Lemon Balm (500mg), Hibiscus Flower (200mg), and Passionflower (200mg). With these ingredients all varied in dosing amounts 5% includes very generous amounts of each to help support supporting the body coping with stress, relaxation, clearing the mind, and even some digestion support coming from the Hibiscus Flower.
The next ingredient is one almost everyone has reaped the benefits of during the holiday season. The amino acid L-Tryptophan or as I like to call it the “Turkey Sleeps” amino acid. This amino not only found in this product but also found in high doses of turkey, L-Tryptophan helps with a serotonin release in the brain to help promote body relaxation to help you fall asleep. With being able to take up to 8-12g of this amino acid daily 5% delivers with giving you 500mg per scoop!
Adding in more amino acids to the formula the next to amino acids both at a smaller dose of 75mg a piece you will find L-Phenylalanine and L-Theanine. Phenylalanine has been found to be an important role in growth and development as well as the production of several neurotransmitters and hormones, as it works as a precursor to Tyrosine as you find above in the formula. Working well with the effects of Phenylalanine, L-Theanine has been thought to help combat stress and help with body relaxation without the drossiness effect. In turn for the gym stimulant junkies a lot of us are it will help dial down the effects of caffeine that we have taken throughout the day to help promote our body to rest.
Continuing on 5% has given us another powerhouse of an ingredient in 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan). Being a naturally occurring compound that is used by the body to produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep, and appetite. In relation to sleep as it may promote better sleep by increasing serotonin levels, which can help regulate sleep-wake cycles. It has been suggested to enhance the quality of sleep and reduce the time it takes to fall asleep. Even though 5% only gives us 30mg of the up to 300-500mg daily dose of 5-HTP, it can still be very beneficial and also paired with usage of additional amounts of 5-HTP throughout the day as some use this as a stress combatant.
Finally, the ingredient we all been waiting for a whopping 8mg dose of 10mg max daily dosing, is melatonin. Melatonin loved by some and hated by others, can’t be denied that it is a very useful ingredient when it comes to sleep support as yes, it is a hormone, but it plays a crucial role in help our sleep/wake cycle or circadian rhythm. For example, as several users tend to use this to help combat jet lag and get back on their original sleep schedule.

As an inconsistent user of sleep aids, I find myself really enjoy using this one. Not just because the is a hot chocolate flavor I can have as a late-night sweet craving right before bed. However, when I use this product, I find myself peacefully going to bed with no drowsiness or comatose feeling when I wake up the next day. With trying this product out consistently and getting better QUALITY of sleep, I am excited to the role it will play in my recovery and muscle building moving forward.
