New science continues to demonstrate the importance of a restful, good night’s sleep to maintaining normal weight and metabolism. During the last decade, research efforts have continued to shed light on the established association between sleep quality and obesity.1 It appears that sleep deprivation alters various aspects of the hormonal control of metabolism. For example, lack of sleep also increases the levels of the “hunger hormone” ghrelin, and there is also evidence that energy expenditure—calorie burning—is decreased by lack of sleep.2 Very exciting new research has also identified a link between duration of sleep and intake of free sugars, suggesting that quality sleep itself is a key strategy to combating obesity.3 While research is ongoing in this area the indications are clear—a good night’s sleep is an important part of any holistic approach to weight loss and management.
To help relax the body, master herbalists have long believed that one must first “calm the mind,” and that certain herbs work to balance and quiet the mind — essential before true relaxation or a good night’s sleep can be experienced. NeoLife’s Herbal Rest & Relax contains a unique blend of herbs formulated to support a relaxed body and quiet mind, which is essential for optimal rest and a good night’s sleep.
Why Choose Herbs For Relaxation?
Herbs have a long history of safe use, without the side effects associated with chemical drugs. Herbs are non-habit-forming and have been shown to restore the body’s balance and help the body perform at its vital best. Herbs have been shown to help relieve nervous tension, reduce stress and mild anxiety, relieve the inability to fully relax, and assist with occasional sleeplessness.
