Science is finding that when our brain is relaxed and we go into the REM sleep cycle our brain actually is activated to clean itself out! Sleep is very important since sleep deprivation can affect inflammation, appetite and mood! Yes, when you are tired and stressed out you reach for sugar and caffeine to wake you up and then more sugar or carbohydrate to put you to sleep. The Nutegra Cellular Fix is a multi-vitamin and mineral with multi-strain probiotics and Omega 3 Fatty Acid to sooth your brain. Many of my clients take their Cellular Fix before bed and find they have a good night’s sleep.
If you are someone who needs more I have a pharmaceutical grade Melatonin that you can use for nights that you just toss and turn. Melatonin is a natural hormone nutrient that is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan. In the body, melatonin appears to regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune function, and protect cells from free radical damage. In the brain, melatonin is an important physiological antioxidant and helps to make the brain think it is “night” and promotes a good night’s sleep!
