Bedtime blues are a drag, but holistic methods can sometimes ease the troubles. That’s why we created a pack composed of the best insomnia-busting products we have to offer.

So, what makes our Sleep Pack so effective? We’re glad you asked! Learn more about what these products do (and how you should use them) in this week’s blog.

The Sleep Pack: Broken Down

Our best-selling pack includes:

Each product is made up of plants and herbs that can help take you on a one-stop trip to slumber-town. Here’s how they do it.

Apothe-Cherry: Melatonin-Booster

What Does It Do?

Apothe-Cherry is a legacy-product for a reason. The concentrate contains just one ingredient: organic tart cherries. Just 1 oz. of of the dark red liquid condenses the nutritional potency of approximately 30 sour cherries. Can you say, efficient?

What’s more, this superfood naturally boosts melatonin production, a hormone your body produces to help you sleep. And this is because it naturally contains the hormone. As it turns out, consumption of this dark red fruit can help us sleep better.

In one randomized, double-blind study published in The European Journal of Nutrition, this fruit’s extract was found to boost melatonin levels, sleep time and quality of sleep. (1) That’s why the cherry is even being studied as a possible treatment for insomnia.

So, consumption of the cherry could help you get some precious shut-eye. But how exactly does that work? Well, melatonin helps regulate your sleep-wake cycle, also known as circadian rhythm.

Tart cherries also contain antioxidants that can help soothe inflammation and support uric acid metabolism. But you know, that’s just an added bonus.

How Should You Use It?

We suggest adding 1 oz. (around 2 tbsp) to 8-10 oz. of water. We also like to splash a little in our Powershakes or Bio Fruit.

Bio Relax: Plant-Based Relaxation

What Does It Do?

Bio Relax capsules contain a handful of herbs and plants:

  • passiflora
  • tart cherry
  • cranberry
  • hyaluronic acid
  • kava root

Cranberry and hyalurnoic acid help promote healthier-looking skin by relaxing the face; passiflora, tart cherry and kava root support calming the rest of the body.

Passiflora, also known as passionflower, has been used in Native American medicine for centuries. The plant naturally supports gamma-aminobtyric acid (GABA) in the brain. Basically, the acid is related to relaxation and stress.

Interestingly enough, one study published in Phytotherapy Research explored the plant’s relationship with sleep (2). Participants drank either one cup of passionflower tea or placebo a day and kept a diary of how they rested. Six participants from the passiflora group reported better sleep.

Of course, more study is warranted, but we still think that’s pretty cool. Kava root supplies similar benefits.

Holistic health practitioners use this root to natural treat anxiety and promote relaxed vibes. A study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders studied this root’s ability to help quell sleep problems (3). Researchers found that sleep issues associated with anxiety disorders could be treated with the root’s extract. That’s a win in our book.

Ionic Elements: Mineral Support

What Does It Do?

Ionic Elements is a specially-formulated combination of fulvic acid and ocean trace minerals that can help athletes and non-athletes alike. This acid comes from small, water-soluble minerals that are found in soil-grown vegetables.

Our concentration also contains other ocean and plant-derived minerals to help the immune system. Because our bodies sometimes lack these minerals, it is thought that the acid can not only help boost energy, but also allow us to recuperate and recover (). That comes in handy when you’re trying to drift off to sleep.

How Do You Use This?

We recommend adding 2 pumps to your water (or any drink) for daily maintenance. You can do this up to three times per day. You can also drop a little in your morning breakfast bowls.

CHILL Spray: Good Vibes

What Does It Do?

Suntheanine™ and GABA work together to promote chill vibes in this spray. What is Suntheanine™? It’s produced from fermentation of a rare amino acid called L-theanine. L-theanine is derived from green tea leaves and helps promote relaxation without drowsiness.

We spoke a little about GABA earlier, but we’ll explain a little more about. This acid helps reduce nerve-excitability in the nervous system, and also helps the body convert serotonin into N-acetlserotonin. This scary-looking chemical is actually a good thing, so don’t worry. It is ultimately converted into melatonin, our sleepy best friend.

How Do You Use This?

You spray it under you tongue (up to six times in one sitting), hold for 20 seconds and then swallow. Use it when you’re feeling a little on edge or need help relaxing.
