Why is our De-stress & Sleep Bundle so good
We know how important sleep is and your De-stress & Sleep Bundle, incorporating Vegan Nights® and Ashwagandha-KSM-66®, is the perfect combination to help you overcome stress and anxiety, particularly in the evenings, and enjoy more complete sleep and wake up refreshed.
How to take them?
Take one or two Vegan Nights® capsules up to two hours before bedtime.
For some people, 30 minutes before bed works well, for others two hours works better. Adapt to what works best for you.
Take one capsule of Ashwagandha KSM-66® per day.
Take your Ashwagandha before you typically experience heightened anxiety. Or if you suffer poor sleep, take it between 1-2 hours before bedtime.
How they work?
Vegan Nights' acclaimed naturally sourced and plant-based ingredients are expertly formulated so they work in harmony to create the optimal conditions to put your mind and body at rest. Here are the stars of Vegan Nights:
L-Glycine: An amino-acid found in protein rich foods including meat, fish, dairy and legumes, numerous studies show L-Glycine has a calming effect on your brain, reducing the time it takes to fall asleep and enhancing sleep quality. It also has a regenerative effect, reducing feelings of tiredness during the day.
L-Theanine: Also an amino-acid and found most commonly in green and black tea, studies show L-Theanine helps your body relax and has been taken for years to help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
5-HTP: 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an amino-acid that your body naturally produces. 5-HTP produces serotonin, which is converted to melatonin, your sleep hormone which regulates your sleep cycle. Low levels of serotonin are associated with sleep disorders so 5-HTP helps combat this by stimulating serotonin and in turn melatonin.
Zinc & Magnesium: Zinc is naturally found in plant and animal foods and is a real mineral 'Superhero' alongside Magnesium. Zinc works with the Vegan Nights’ amino-acids by helping metabolise melatonin, and plays a critical role in your neurotransmitter function. Magnesium is an essential mineral for your psychological wellbeing and the normal function of your nervous system.
Chamomile: For years Chamomile has been used as a natural remedy to treat insomnia. Our plant-extract Chamomile contains 'apigenin', a compound that is believed to induce sleepiness when it binds to the GABA receptors in your brain.
Ashwagandha helps lower cortisol, a little known but very common inhibitor of melatonin, your sleep hormone. As a result, cortisol is one of the most common causes of poor sleep, so Ashwagandha is an effective supplement on its own and alongside Vegan Nights® to help overcome sleep issues so you can get to sleep more easily and enjoy deeper sleep.
From improving resistance to stress, helping overcome anxiety and insomnia, enhancing memory and cognitive function to supporting your strength, stamina and endurance, there are many benefits of Ashwagandha KSM-66®.
