Amongst the busy lifestyle of today’s modern world, getting adequate and quality sleep is something we see many of our clinic clients struggle with. Considering sleep is the most important process for mental and physical restoration, this was both a serious and troubling insight.
With this in mind, BePure Deep Sleep was created to nurture deeper, more restorative sleep.
Why is a good night’s sleep so important?
Cognitive mental processing and cellular repair take place during sleep time. Inadequate sleep is linked to an increased risk of autoimmunity, obesity, metabolic diseases, cancer, immune dysfunction, and mental health concerns.
Falling (and staying!) asleep at the right time sets the hormonal rhythm and keeps us regulated and balanced—allowing our thyroid, hunger and blood sugar hormones to work optimally. Tiredness from lack of sleep results in overeating to make up for the energy deficiency. If you’ve ever found yourself reaching for additional snacks after a poor night's sleep, that’s why!
Stress—both real or perceived—can make falling asleep more difficult, and high levels of cortisol or adrenaline can leave us with a racing mind. The herbs in BePure Deep Sleep work synergistically to promote a sense of calm and deep relaxation, supporting us in drifting off each night. Zinc and Vitamin B6 aids in reducing anxiety.
Ginger supports the gastrointestinal system, reducing reflux and nausea which can get in the way of rest. Blood sugar dysregulation can disrupt the health of our liver and also our intuitive wake-sleep cycle.
Low melatonin can be caused by a variety of issues including low serotonin, high cortisol levels and excess inflammation, and blue light from screens can prevent melatonin production which is why we included tart cherry, a natural source of melatonin, to support you in falling asleep.
And of course, tart cherry which naturally supports the production of melatonin, our sleep-promoting hormone.
