If you find it difficult to sleep after a busy day or suffer from insomnia, just know that you’re not alone. Sleep deprivation is a problem that can be difficult to diagnose because it affects people differently. Sleep is imperative for good health, yet so many adults report sleeping less than the recommended seven hours per night.
Some stress is normal, and even healthy. It serves as an alert to possible danger, initiating the fight or flight response to address that danger. However, too much stress can negatively impact the immune system and cause physical symptoms such as weight gain, acne and high blood pressure, due to excess cortisol, commonly known as the fight-or-flight hormone.
We have packed 2 powerful supplements that can help you fight stress, improve calmness and promote better sleep, and they are:
1. ASHWAGANDHA GUMMIES (2 bottles)
Ashwagandha is effective for improving certain aspects of health, including reducing stress, improving sleep quality, and improving symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Preliminary research has found that Ashwagandha may help people fall asleep faster, spend more time asleep, and experience better sleep quality. After taking Ashwagandha for six weeks, participants in one actigraphy-based study described their sleep as being 72% better, on average.
Ashwagandha’s main active ingredients are withanolides, which are believed to carry a host of benefits including the ability to ease stress. Stress has been linked to poorer sleep quality and excessive daytime sleepiness. If taking Ashwagandha before bed helps you relax, this may be another way by which it promotes better sleep.
