Sleep is a natural part of human life, on average we spend a third of our lives sleeping. An essential process for our bodies and brains to function properly, sleep deprivation can have serious consequences. It is during sleep that the brain processes the information it has received during the day and stores memories of the day (memory consolidation). During sleep, the production of growth hormone and serotonin is greatly increased.
Sleep is a great aid to stress management, thanks to serotonin. So any supplement that support sleep can help with stress management. In today's world we are exposed to a huge amount of stressors. This can lead to persistent tension and constant nervousness. It can even cause illness. The adrenal glands produce large amounts of cortisol and adrenaline (so-called "stress hormones") as a result of "stressing".
Poor quality sleep, when we wake up a lot, triggers the production of cortisol, which is also not conductive to stress management, which is why it is important to get the right quality of sleep so that we can sleep through the night.
Our sleep support supplements:
- Melatonin: the so-called "sleep hormone". It is responsible for the feeling of sleepiness, for triggering sleep. Melatonin also improves the quality of sleep, so it can improve many sleep disorders.
- Tryptophan: an essential amino acid that is a precursor of serotonin, it calms you down in preparation for sleep.
- Magnesium: an essential mineral. It has many functions, including stimulating adrenal function which helps maintain cortisol levels.
We also offer a non-melatonin sleep aid formulation containing various herbs that may be suitable for those who experience side effects from melatonin.
