Sleep is an extremely important part of fat loss, and healthy living in general. It is one of our 5 Pillars of Fat Loss (Click to learn more about those), but it is often forgotten and brushed to the side.But what happens when you don’t get enough sleep (7-9 hours)? Anything less than 6.5hrs a night can lead to increased appetite, increased hormone levels and reduced ability to lose body fat. It also causes decreased energy and alertness as well as a lack of focus and motivation. Not only are their physical effects, but these things also impact your mental state. All of these factors combined can have an extremely negative impact on your health and fat loss goals, not to mention overall quality of life.
Getting enough sleep can definitely be difficult. I know life can be extremely busy, especially with a family, kids, and activities going on. That is why the first thing we try to tackle is quality of sleep (click here to check out our blog and podcast about Deep Sleep and find out more about Quality vs Quantity of Sleep). If we cannot get enough, we want to maximize the quality of the sleep that we are getting and use it to help us function optimally. That is where our Gummies come in.
What are they made of?
Our gummies use a combination of 3 ingredients:
- Vitamin B6: Aids in the production of the hormones serotonin and melatonin, both of which are important for sound, restful sleep, and also to mood.
- Passiflora Extract:This is an herb used to treat anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria. It appears to boost the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in your brain. This compound lowers brain activity, which may help you relax and sleep better.
- Melatonin: A hormone that your brain produces by the pineal gland at night in response to darkness. It helps with the timing of your circadian rhythms (24-hour internal clock) and with sleep.
The Melatonin Myth
Melatonin is often thought of as being dangerous because it can create a dependency on it. Although that can be true, it is not the case in our supplement. We have found that this only occurs in people regularly taking 10mg or more every night. Our supplement contains only 2mg (1/5th the amount), meaning that there is just enough to be effective, but not cause anything negative.
What do our customers have to say?
“Many times at night I struggle to fall asleep because I feel very awake and my brain won’t shut off. When that happens, I take a Deep Sleep gummy, and I can feel my body relax and slowly get tired enough to fall asleep. They taste delicious too!!”Dorothy S
“I normally don’t have trouble falling asleep, but my sleep is not sound when under stress. Deep Sleep calms me and allows me to fall asleep quickly, and in the morning I feel more rested and not drowsy.”Mark W
How to get deeper sleep.
There are lots of ways to help you get better quality sleep. Things like a bedtime routine, proper eating throughout the day and before bed, blackout curtains, and noise machines are just a few examples of things that can help. But the easiest way is to try our Deep Sleep Gummies. They are extremely quick to use and taste great. But the biggest benefit is the simplicity of using them. Simply take a gummy 30 minutes before bed (this can be every night, while traveling, or just when you are having trouble sleeping).
