Sleep & Anxiety Solutions

Sleep-related stress and anxiety is often underestimated. The first thing to look at when stress or anxiety have become a problem, is sleep. Sort out sleep issues and many anxiety issues will spontaneously resolve. If not, then other problems may need to be addressed, but without adequate, good quality sleep, these other efforts may be doomed to failure. Sleep first.

Sleep time is repair time. We need a decent amount of deep, restful sleep each night because our body does its maintenance work when we are asleep. Children’s growth and development is supported during sleep. Healthy brain function and physical health are promoted during sleep.

WARNING: if you are on any prescription medication, have an illness or a chronic disease, or are in a compromised state of health, consult your doctor before taking any of our supplements, or before implementing any of our recommended lifestyle or dietary changes.

SLEEP oral spray is an effective solution for reducing stress and anxiety by improving sleep.

A lack of sleep spikes the stress hormone cortisol. Too much cortisol creates feelings of stress and anxiety. Just enough cortisol is needed for focus and concentration. Increased cortisol tendencies are made worse by addItional stress.

Stress comes in many forms, and this will cause cortisol to increase. Stressors may include any of the following:

  • Poor sleep
  • Insufficient sleep
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Work stress
  • Financial stress
  • Environmental stress
  • Junk food
  • Toxins
  • Unbalanced hormones
  • Chronic pain
  • Disease

We offer you a soothing solution to ease you into a deep and restful sleep: our product SLEEP. A tried and trusted formula that quickly becomes a home-essential because it supports sleep, relaxation & cell membrane health.

This product works on the understanding that the body can resolve its own issues. Tiny amounts of natural substances, like plants and minerals, are used to stimulate the rebalancing process. Lavender is known for its nerve tonifying, relaxing and calming properties, making it ideal for use before sleep. Our proprietary micronisation process enhances the effect of the extracts.

A few sprays before bedtime promotes instant sleep. If you wake up at night with a busy mind, take a few more sprays. Using it during the day reduces cortisol by relaxing you, without putting you to sleep.

WHY DOES CORTISOL AFFECT SLEEP?

Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that plays a variety of roles in the body, including helping to regulate metabolism and the body’s stress response. Cortisol levels naturally fluctuate throughout the day, with levels typically being highest in the morning and lowest at night.

Cortisol can affect sleep in several ways. For example, high levels of cortisol can interfere with the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle, making it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep. Cortisol can also disrupt the production of other hormones that are involved in sleep, such as melatonin, which helps to regulate the sleep-wake cycle.

In addition, cortisol can increase the body’s alertness and arousal, making it more difficult to relax and fall asleep. Chronic stress, which can cause high levels of cortisol, has also been linked to sleep problems, including insomnia.

It’s important to note that while cortisol can affect sleep, other factors, such as poor sleep hygiene, can also contribute to sleep problems. It’s a good idea to speak with a healthcare professional if you are experiencing persistent sleep problems, as they can help you to identify the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatment.

PURE MAGNESIUM CHELATE is an optimised blend of Magnesium Citrate and Magnesium Orotate.

Magnesium is essential for the release of the mood-boosting neurotransmitter, serotonin, the mood-boosting. When we are stressed, the stress hormones – cortisol and epinephrine – use up the stored magnesium in the body. This is one more reason why supplementing with Magnesium supports the reduction of anxiety and depression.

Magnesium affects a number of neurotransmitter activities, inhibiting the release of some excitatory neuro- transmitters. It acts as a voltage-gated antagonist at the glutamate, N-methyl-D- aspartate (NMDA) receptor, and antagonizes calcium entry via voltage-gated channels of all types.

Magnesium is an essential co-factor in many enzyme processes, making it a wise choice to use during a detox. If you have muscle aches or cramps, this is a sure sign you are low in magnesium. As a calming sleep aid, Magnesium support restful sleep.

WHY IS MAGNESIUM IMPORTANT?

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a variety of roles in the body. It is involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions, including energy production, protein synthesis, and muscle and nerve function.

Some of the key functions of magnesium in the body include:

  1. Maintaining normal muscle and nerve function: Magnesium is necessary for the proper function of muscles and nerves. It helps to regulate muscle contractions and plays a role in the transmission of nerve impulses.
  2. Supporting bone health: Magnesium is involved in the formation and maintenance of strong bones. It helps to regulate calcium and vitamin D levels, which are important for bone health.
  3. Regulating blood sugar levels: Magnesium plays a role in the regulation of blood sugar levels by helping the body to use glucose for energy.
  4. Supporting the immune system: Magnesium is involved in the functioning of the immune system and may help to reduce inflammation.
  5. Reducing the risk of heart disease: Some research suggests that magnesium may help to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

It’s important to get enough magnesium in your diet, as a deficiency can lead to a variety of health problems. Good sources of magnesium include leafy green vegetables, nuts and seeds, whole grains, and dairy products.

DOES MAGNESIUM HELP IMPROVE SLEEP?

There is some evidence to suggest that magnesium may also have a positive effect on sleep.

For example, some research has found that magnesium supplements may help to improve sleep quality in people with insomnia. Magnesium may help to promote relaxation and calmness, which can make it easier to fall asleep. It may also help to reduce the frequency of awakenings during the night.

Magnesium may also be effective in relieving other sleep-related problems, such as restless leg syndrome, a condition characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs, which can disrupt sleep.

It’s important to note that while magnesium may be helpful for some people in improving sleep, it is not a replacement for good sleep hygiene and may not be effective for everyone. If you are experiencing persistent sleep problems, it is a good idea to speak with a healthcare professional, as they can help you to identify the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatment.

PURE VITAMIN B12 is a well-known vitamin to support the brain, nerves, methylation (cellular detoxification), and for energy.

B12 works directly on the brain and this helps to induce sleep. However, as with all B-vitamins, it is advisable to take your B12 sprays in the morning. This ensures that the energising effects of B12 do not interfere with your sleep.

Low B12 symptoms may include numbness, tingling, insomnia, gas, constipation, problems walking, memory loss, depression and behavioural changes – making B12 a great choice of vitamin for many people.

Gene Information: Known support for MTR, MTRR, COMT, CBS, MTHFR677, FUT2, OGG1, neurotransmitters, energy, and blood cells.

THE IMPORTANCE OF B12

Vitamin B12 is important for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and is involved in the production of red blood cells and DNA.

Some of the key benefits of vitamin B12 include:

  1. Supporting brain function: Vitamin B12 is involved in the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which helps to regulate mood and sleep. It may also help to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and improve memory and concentration.
  2. Maintaining energy levels: Vitamin B12 helps to convert food into energy and may help to reduce fatigue and increase energy levels.
  3. Supporting cardiovascular health: Vitamin B12 plays a role in the production of red blood cells and helps to regulate homocysteine levels, a type of amino acid that is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
  4. Promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails: Vitamin B12 may help to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails by supporting the production of collagen, a protein that helps to keep skin and hair strong.

It’s important to get enough vitamin B12 in your diet, as a deficiency can lead to a variety of health problems. Good sources of vitamin B12 include animal products, such as meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. Vegetarians and vegans may be at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency, as plant-based sources of vitamin B12 are limited. Supplementation may be necessary to ensure adequate intake in these populations.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE B COMPLEX VITAMINS

B complex vitamins are a group of eight water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in the body. These vitamins are essential for maintaining good health and are involved in a variety of functions, including energy production, brain function, and the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

The B complex vitamins include:

  1. Vitamin B1 (thiamin)
  2. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
  3. Vitamin B3 (niacin)
  4. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  5. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)
  6. Vitamin B7 (biotin)
  7. Vitamin B9 (folate)
  8. Vitamin B12 (cobalamin)

Each of the B complex vitamins has its own specific functions and benefits. For example, vitamin B1 helps to convert food into energy and is important for nerve function, while vitamin B9 is necessary for the production of red blood cells and the synthesis of DNA.

It’s important to get enough of the B complex vitamins in your diet, as deficiencies can lead to a variety of health problems. Good sources of the B complex vitamins include whole grains, nuts and seeds, beans, leafy green vegetables, and animal products such as meat, poultry, and dairy.
