We’ve all been lying in bed at 3am watching the clock, mind racing. It’s only made worse by thoughts of getting up at 6am. Only 3 hours of sleep again!? Whatever your cause of sleeplessness, I want to outline some ways that you can promote deep, restful sleep so that you are refreshed and attentive in your waking hours.
L-Theanine is a wonderful drug that is derived from Green Tea. If you’ve ever had Green Tea, you can probably relate to the relaxing effects that it has on you despite containing caffeine. That is thanks to the amino acid commonly known as L-Theanine. Research shows that it not only helps you fall asleep faster, but that it can promote deep sleep which is what leaves you feeling well-rested in the morning.
GABA can make you feel more relaxed and feel more at ease. If you have insomnia due to worrying or stress, GABA can negate those so you can get a restful night of sleep. It does this by activating receptors in the brain which are essential in controlling anxiety. If stress is preventing you from getting good sleep, try GABA. The last thing you want is for stress to beget stress by not being well-rested to tackle your daily duties.
Bacopa has been know to produce restful sleep in addition to it’s already impressive list of benefits. Used in India for many centuries, Bacopa helps with memory and even provides much needed anti-oxidant relief for your brain. If you want to do a little brain enhancement while getting good sleep, Bacopa is highly suggested.
