The old saying of: “If you snooze, you loose” isn’t always right…
Our body does amazing things when you get proper quality sleep – raising testosterone, improve insulin sensitivity, lower blood pressure, and help you acting civilized and not wanting to jump off a bridge during the day! However, in the age of technology and constant stress, getting enough quality sleep isn’t easy. You don’t have to result to a glass of wine or Z quill or any kind of ambient, these 3 supplements when taken daily before bed time will help improve your sleep quality:
- ZMA – Has long been a supplement for serious athletes. They are zinc and magnesium aspartate combined. This supplement works on your sympathetic nervous system. It helps that part of the brain to calm down and peaceful. On top of that, many university studies have shown ZMA to have great effects on your hormonal health. Our “night time recovery” product at CFSC has ZMA as its main active ingredient!
- Taurine – I know…that’s that thing in all the energy drink right? Yes, but remember that all energy drinks contain a high amount of caffeine. When combining high caffein does with low taurine dose, the brain becomes more excited. However when taken alone, Taurine elevates GABA which is a chemical neurotransmitter that has soothing effects on the nervous system.
- Vitmain D3 – Our body works in a rhythm, meaning there are specific time of the day the body should feel energetic as well as hungry and tired. With today’s technology and lifestyle, we don’t have a rhythm. Vitamin D3 helps set our body back into that rhythm especially the circadian rhythm of your sleep!
These supplements are widely available and very affordable. While, they could never replace the quality of your foods, they could certainly fill in the holes of your nutrition and improve your life quality!
