Sleep is the foundation of health. Sleep will not only influence your energy levels, mood, and attitude the following day but actually affects almost every tissue in your body. While we might not immediately feel anything beyond tiredness after inadequate sleep, everything from our hormones, immune system, appetite, breathing, blood pressure, and cardiovascular health are all impacted.
The odd night of poor sleep is insignificant in the long run, however if you’re dealing with chronic sleep issues, you could be seriously harming your health if left to continue.
Alongside giving your body the nutrients it needs to fall into a sleep-ready state, there are a few easy ways to enhance your sleep. They might not all be suited to your lifestyle, but try as many as you can until your sleep improves.
Limiting screen time and bright light before bed.
Avoid caffeine in the afternoon.
Blackout your bedroom.
Don’t exercise too late at night.
Manage stress as best you can.
Try to get to sleep earlier.
What it is, which forms and why is it used?
L-Glycine is an amino acid with a number of important functions in the body, including influencing sleep in a number of ways. When taken before bedtime, it promotes good quality sleep so that you wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, energised and ready to be active.
As a neurotransmitter, glycine both stimulates and inhibits cells in the brain and central nervous system, affecting cognition, mood, and sleep as well as helping the body make serotonin, a hormone that has significant effects on sleep.
Ashwagandha Root Powder is a plant extract that is most recognised for its ability to modulate stress and anxiety. Various human trials have also demonstrated its capacity to reduce insomnia and improve sleep quality. Ashwagandha has calmative effects on the central nervous system. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, and may help to reduce inflammation in the brain.
Jujube Fruit Powder also known as Ziziphus, has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine for anxiety and sedation. The phytochemicals in jujube trigger changes to neurotransmitters which make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves. It helps improve sleep quality by acting as a calmative on the central nervous system to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety L-theanine influences several neurotransmitters and promotes relaxing brain activity.
Hops Flower Powder comes from the female flowers from the hop plant that have a long history of use in herbal medicine. Hops has been found to be beneficial for sleep due to the calmative effects as well as being able to lower your body temperature, which brings about drowsiness and begins the body’s sleep process.
Lemon Balm Herb Extract is a herb from the mint family. It helps sleep by reducing stress and anxiety, promoting a sedative effect and feeling of calmness.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that has beneficial effects on sleep due to its calming and relaxing effects on the nervous system and muscular system. We’ve included two forms, magnesium glycinate and magnesium L-threonate, the best forms for promoting quality sleep.
L-Tryptophan is an amino acid which the body uses to make serotonin and melatonin, the chemical which then can be made into melatonin production, the hormone responsible for making you tired and drowsy.
Apigenin is a bioflavonoid compound that is found in a wide variety of plants and herbs. It is the active ingredient in chamomile tea responsible for its sleep improving benefits. At therapeutic doses, it offers anxiety reducing, relaxing and sedative effects.
Zinc is an essential mineral our body cannot make. The consumption of zinc has been shown to increase the amount and quality of sleep in humans. It is required for optimal melatonin production, the hormone responsible for making you tired and drowsy.
Our sweetener and flavour are all from natural sources. We use the best available natural stevia leaf extract to sweeten the powder. The flavour is a natural peach mango and the powder is coloured with a dash of annatto seed powder.
