In Need Of Some Good Sleep?
Sleep is an essential part of health, yet about 1 in 3 Americans aren't getting enough restorative sleep. Poor sleep has been linked with negative effects on hormones, weight gain, brain function and physical performance. On the other hand, good quality sleep has been shown to help you maintain healthy weight, balance your hormones & prevent disease. If you could benefit from more restorative sleep (I think that's all of us), then keep reading for our favorite sleep support supplements and healthy sleep tips!
Why You Need Vitamin D

There are a few ways that Vitamin D and sleep are connected. First, there are binding sites for Vitamin D on nearly every cell in the body, including the ones that affect sleep. Secondly, Vitamin D plays a role in the production of melatonin, your sleep hormone. Beyond sleep, vitamin D levels are necessary for many other functions in the body, including a healthy immune system. With back to school around the corner and summer coming to an end, it might be a good idea to get Vitamin D back in your routine.
Prepare For Sleep During The Day
The elements of a good night's sleep start long before you go to bed. Try adopting some of these healthy sleeps habits during your day. Sticking to a schedule to wake and sleep at the same time daily, making your bed and cleaning your room in the morning so it's ready for you a night and writing down your worries to leave the stress out of your mind and your bedroom are different ways to support sleep before you even hit the hay!
Power Down the Electronics
Power down your electronic devices at least an hour before bed. The blue light from these devices stimulate your brain and can disrupt your ability to get into a deep sleep by lowering your production of melatonin. If you don’t want to take melatonin you can get it naturally by drinking tart cherry juice in the evening, which promotes your body’s production of melatonin. If you must use electronics before bedtime, consider purchasing blue light blocking glasses and switching your devices to the "night shift mode" to reduce blue light.
