Put insomnia to bed, for good

Counting sheep, or any other fluffy mammal for that matter, just doesn’t cut it when it comes to helping you fall asleep. When yogic breathing or sounds of the ocean don’t work either: It’s time for some help with insomnia. There’s nothing quite as bad as lying in bed, tossing and turning all night, thinking about your to-do list at work, and why do giraffes have such long tongues anyway?

Getting enough shut-eye every night is vital for maintaining optimum health and it’s also important to realise that built-up stress has a tendency to accumulate over time – whether it’s relating to work or general daily life challenges – and this takes a toll on the mind and body. This in turn can put strain on the immune system and make you more susceptible to infection and illness. Now, that is far from ideal.

Most of us need about 8 hours of good-quality sleep every night; however, the exact number differs from person to person. If you often wake up tired and short-tempered and struggle to focus, you might not be getting enough sleep, or your quality of sleep might be inadequate. Inadequate sleep negatively affects your mental abilities and emotional state and, in the long term, puts you at risk of pretty serious medical conditions including obesity, coronary heart disease, and diabetes. Shockingly, it also shortens your life expectancy. OK, now I’m exhausted!

Insomnia can lead to unhealthy habits that can hurt your heart, including heightened stress levels, lack of motivation to be physically active, and unhealthy food choices. There’s more to staying heart-healthy than just eating right and exercising regularly, you also need to be getting enough shuteye.

Improve your sleep quality and limit feelings of anxiety

No one should suffer from sleep struggles, which is where VitaminMe Sleep + Anxiety comes in. Our vitamin formula combines Valerian root, Passionflower and Theanine that promotes healthy sleeping patterns, alleviates feelings of anxiety, and lessens feelings of sleeplessness and insomnia.

Valerian, also known as Valeriana officinalis, Valerian root has been used for centuries in herbal medicine to treat insomnia, nervousness and anxiety. It increases the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid GABA in the brain resulting in a physical and mental calming effect on the body.

Passionflower, is used to treat a multitude of concerns including insomnia, agitation and restlessness. Much like Valerian Root, Passionflower enhances levels of GABA in the brain resulting in a feeling of calmness.

Theanine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in tea, especially green tea, and is known to lessen stress and anxiety. It helps the body relax by gently reducing the resting heart rate, allowing you to fall asleep quicker.

These ingredients work together in harmony to make sleep struggles a thing of the past.

Thanks to VitaminMe Sleep + Anxiety, there’s no need to toss and turn all night or put your mind and your body through the adverse effects associated with lack of sleep and feelings of anxiety!
