Trouble falling asleep? ReadySleep by CHI4Health uses a unique blend of botanicals and flavonoids to promote relaxation and calm to ensure you fall asleep when you need to. For those experiencing sleeplessness ReadySleep can help combat restlessness, stress, trauma, sleep schedule disruption or other stressors that trigger unrest while trying to fall asleep.
Busy and stressful lifestyles can cause sleep patterns to become disrupted, leading to over-stimulation and restlessness. ReadySleep uses a GABA stimulating botanical blend of Valerian and Passion Fruit that works to support GABA production, the primary relaxation neurotransmitter necessary for inducing sleep. L-theanine and Hops Strobile extract are added for their relaxant properties and Jujube extract for its sedation attributes.
Valerian root is widely studied and known for its relaxant and antispasmodic properties. Valerenic acid, an active component of valerian root, supports healthy GABA levels. GABA enables the mind and body to relax and fall asleep. Research supports the effectiveness of valerian root in supporting healthy sleep patterns.
Passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) has a long history of use amongst traditional herbalists for its many health benefits. It contains a diverse set of phytonutrients, flavonoids and alkaloids that interact with GABA receptors to induce calmness and relaxation.
L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea and some mushrooms. It is considered a relaxant.The Food and Drug Administration has approved several health claims for L-theanine including: stress reduction, relaxation without drowsiness, decreased nervousness from fatigue, and reduced nervous irritability. L-theanine has demonstrated significant increased alpha brain wave activity which relates to a perceived state of relaxation.
Hops Strobile Extract
The hops plant, Humulus lupulus, is a climbing vine that has been used for hundreds of years for its relaxing properties. The active ingredients in hops include a volatile oil, valerianic acid, tannins and flavonoids. European studies have examined the effects of hops in combination with other sleep-supporting botanicals. One such study indicated that the hops-valerian preparation was found to improve sleep quality by decreasing sleep latency (or the amount of time it takes to fall asleep after the lights have been turned off) and wake time throughout the night.
This herb is considered a sedative and widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is thought to reduce stress, conserve energy and promote sleep.
