One of the major problems in our busy lives today is getting enough quality sleep.
Sleep is vitally important for a range of processes to occur in our body from memory transfer to hormone releases to repair the body. Without enough good quality sleep the human body suffers and you always feel drowsy. This is especially prominent in shift workers or those who live within high stress environments.
We’ve designed the Good Night Sleep Pack to do the following:
- Cut down cortisol levels in the body
- Calm the mind and body
Cortisol & Sleep
Normally, cortisol (your body’s hormonal response to stress) is produced upon waking and may spike throughout the day depending on what you get up to, such as working out, seeing a shockingly large electricity bill or intense meetings at work. In a normal scenario, levels drop down towards the evening. Stress is normal, however, this natural cycle can be interrupted and remain high when constant and excessive stress is experienced. This is what is referred to as “Chronic Stress”.
Chronic Stress causes a build up of cortisol which takes longer for the body to clear and ultimately means it takes longer to settle the mind and body at night when it is time to sleep. This doesn’t mean you sleep longer either. When chronic stress is involved your body produces cortisol earlier in the day than it otherwise would, making it harder to catch up on lost sleep.
ATP Science Cort-RX is a powerful blend of natural adaptogenic herbal compounds designed to counter the elevated levels of cortisol that prevent restful and peaceful sleep from occurring, restoring balance to cortisol levels and allowing the body to self-regulate again.
Calming the Mind and Body
Magnesium acts as an “off switch” allowing the mind and body to initiate a “rest procedure” when it is time to sleep. With a deficiency of magnesium in the body there are around 200 chemical reactions that are effected so getting enough is important, let alone having enough to switch off at night.
Magnesium is an essential mineral, meaning you need to get it from your diet every day. Many people don’t get enough magnesium to support their daily requirements which is why we recommend ZMST by ATP Science. Living an active lifestyle you lose more zinc and magnesium than the average person which contributes to further depletion than the general population.
ZMST contains selenium which aids in the absorption of both zinc and magnesium. It’s also estimated that a billion people worldwide are deficient in selenium making this essential mineral all the more important.
Take 2 capsules of ZMST and 2 capsules of Cort-RX approximately 30min before you go to bed each night.
