According to the "Sleep Doctor" Michael J. Breus, PhD: "CBD has the ability to reduce anxiety, which can be helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. CBD may increase overall sleep amounts, and improve insomnia, according to research. CBD has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain. In smaller doses, CBD stimulates alertness and reduces daytime sleepiness, which is important for daytime performance and for the strength and consistency of the sleep-wake cycle."
This blend contains organic and wildcrafted ingredients, specifically formulated to reduce stress and anxiety, while simultaneously ushering in a state of deep relaxation. Each ingredient is powerful on their own, but together, this synergystic blend enhances the body's ability to rest, relax, and achieve a full nights sleep.
- Ashwagandha is an Ayurvedic adaptogenic herb that has been used for thousands of years. It has been found to control and limit the production of stress hormones such as cortisol. Somnifera in Latin literally means sleep inducer.
- Chamomile - Because of it's mild sedative properties, chamomile can be used as a relaxant, and is traditionally used to promote healthy sleeping and to help with mild insomnia.
- Kava Kava acts on GABA by increasing the binding of GABA to GABA-A receptors, resulting in sedative-like effects. Brain waves like alpha, theta and delta waves are increased, and beta waves (those responsible for wakefulness) are decreased. Kava also decreases the activity of noradrenaline, a neurotransmitter that promotes alertness, by inhibiting its reuptake.
- L-theanine, an amino acid found in tea leaves, elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness, and sleep, as well as appetite, energy, and other cognitive skills. It also reduces levels of chemicals in the brain that are linked to stress and anxiety. Lastly, L-theanine appears to encourage the release of alpha-waves, which enhances relaxation, focus, and creativity.
- Rhodiola, another adaptogenic root used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that is very effective in fighting stress due to its ability to reduce levels of cortisol. Among the chemical compounds of rhodiola, we find rosavin and salidroside, which help to maintain the necessary levels of serotonin and dopamine; two neurotransmitters linked to sleep quality.
- Valerian increases the levels of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) in the brain. Healthy levels of GABA promote and protect sound and restful sleep, and help ensure we spend the right amount of time in slow-wave sleep and REM sleep. Research shows that valerian can help individuals fall asleep more quickly, improve their quality of sleep, and increase amount of nightly sleep.
- Melatonin is produced in response to darkness by a pea-sized gland located just above the midbrain, called the pineal gland. This hormone helps with the timing of your circadian rhythms and with sleep. It also known to be a powerful antioxidant. When the sun sets and darkness falls, the pineal begins to produce melatonin. As a result, melatonin levels in the blood rise sharply and you begin to feel less alert and sleep becomes more inviting. Melatonin levels in the blood stay elevated for roughly 12 hours, before they fall back to low daytime levels around 9 am. Daytime levels of melatonin are barely detectable.
