Neora’s Sleep Chews Give you Something to Chew On
Sleep+ Wellness Chew Advantage
Neora Sleep+ Wellness Chews are not just for sleep, they are a sleep and a wellness chew. They help reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and then help you to stay asleep, so that you wake up feeling fresh and rested. Neora’s night chews support your body to stay calm so you can relax and fall asleep more easily, and they help counteract the negative effects of stress. By supporting normal cortisol levels, the chews help your body to maintain its circadian rhythms. Your body will work at its best when you take Neora Sleep+ Wellness Chews in combination with our Neora Energy+ Wellness Chews, which provide you with steady energy during the day. With Sleep+ Chews at night and Energy+ Chews by day, your body’s circadian rhythms will be optimized. You will have more energy, better sleep, and presence of mind all day long with the Neora Wellness Chews Combo.*
Circadian Rhythm Governs Your Sleep-Wake Cycle
It’s not just how much you sleep, but when and how you sleep that is important. Regulating your sleep cycle, your circadian rhythm, is important because it is your sleep-wake cycle that ensures your body processes are optimized over a 24-hour period. From the Latin circa diem, meaning around a day, the circadian rhythm is found everywhere in nature. It is what helps flowers close at night and open during the day and keeps nocturnal animals safe at night. It is what keeps a balance inside living creatures and, on a macro-level, in the ecosystems themselves.
Circadian Signals Tell Us When to Sleep
In humans, exposure to sunlight triggers signals to generate the body to become more alert and active, while darkness triggers sleep-inducing hormones. Imagine that with all our electricity, lights and screens mimicking sunlight, our bodies get triggered to stay awake, and our natural sleep cycles get scrambled. Our Circadian rhythms are disrupted, and the body no longer knows what signals to send or when to send them. This greatly disrupts our sleep.
Circadiplex Complex™ is an Arsenal of Adaptogens
Enter Circadiplex™. Neora’s Sleep+ Wellness Chews contain Circadiplex Complex™, a carefully crafted, exclusive blend developed in our laboratory composed of adaptogens that help you to balance your circadian rhythm and increase your body’s ability to resist and recover from stress. Adaptogens are herbal remedies that have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic Medicine for centuries and have had a recent revival in health circles. Adaptogens are different from medicine in that they actually help the body to help or heal itself, a property which very much complements holistic healing and medicine. Each adaptogen has a different function, but all help your body to better perform against stress, anxiety, and inflammation. Let’s take a closer look at each adaptogen in Ciracadiplex™ to better understand how Neora’s Sleep+ Chews get you to the Land of Nod naturally. *
Ashwaganda for Stress
Neora’s Sleep+ Wellness Chews are formulated from an exclusive blend of powerful adaptogens to help you balance your circadian rhythm and increase your body’s ability to recover and resist stress. The foremost adaptogen is one you have probably heard of – Ashwaganda Extract – and is good for long-term stressi. One of the more well-known and well-researched adaptogens, Ashwaganda is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine and “reduces the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, a system in your body that regulates stress response.”ii The Ashwaganda that Neora uses is more potent than the standard Ashwaganda extracts because it includes both the roots and the leaves to harness the full power of the plant and maximize your body’s ability to cope with stress. *
Reishi Mushrooms Regulate Stress Levels
Next, Neora uses Reishi Mushrooms, which have been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Reishi mushrooms have enjoyed a resurgence of late and are being added to everything from coffee to cocoa. These mighty mushrooms are purported to boost your immunity and have been added to the coronavirus fighting arsenal. The Reishi mushroom in particular is known as the “queen of mushrooms” because it helps regulate stress and promote sleep by supporting normal hormone and cortisol levels; as such, it is the perfect example of an adaptogen. We all know that we fall sick more easily when we are run down and sleep less, so it is no surprise that Reishi mushrooms, by helping the body sleep better, help fight off germs better as well.
Gotu Kola For Longevity
The third and final adaptogen in Neora’s Circadiplex™ Complex is Gotu Kola, a botanical used in TCM, Indian, and Ayurvedic medicine, and fondly known as the “longevity herb.” Gotu Kola is particularly effective at fighting fatigue and anxiety. Besides fighting stress, Gotu Kola may also be beneficial in fighting insomnia and may even act as an anti-depressant and boost cognitive function.iii
Besides adaptogens, Neora’s Sleep+ Wellness Chews also contain L-Tryptophan, an essential amino acid that converts into serotonin, the “feel-good” chemical in your brain governing your mood and also your sleep. Turkey and cheese are rich in L-Tryptophan, which is why you feel so sleepy after eating them. Not only is L-Tryptophan responsible for food coma, but it is also what makes you so happy after you’ve enjoyed that smooth, silky chocolate square melt in your mouth. Chocolate can have up to 18mg of tryptophan in one ounce. Turkey has about 26mg per ounce, but whereas turkey tends to make you sleepy, chocolate calms you down. Either way, serotonin is responsible for both of these reactions, and L-Tryptophan is the precursor to serotonin.
Take Chamomile to Max your Relax
Believe it or not, Neora Sleep+ Wellness Chews contain Chamomile. We all know Chamomile as the tea we take with us to bed to calm us down from the day and help us get to sleep. Chamomile contains a chemical compound called apigenin, which induces sleepiness when it binds to the GABA receptors in the brain. When apigenin binds to our GABA receptors, it acts as a sedative and has a relaxing effect.
Melatonin Makes you Sleepy
Circadiplex™ is also composed of Melatonin, a household word in the US even as it is banned in Europe and commonly used for jetlag or sleeplessness. Melatonin can even be found in children’s formulations with lower doses. But did you know that melatonin is actually a hormone? It induces sleep, but we also know that it has many other functions, though we still don’t know all of them. Exposure to light can block melatonin, so many of us take it because we stay up late at night watching TV or staring at our phone screens, stimulating our awake hormones. Neora’s night chews contain melatonin to reinforce our natural circadian rhythms; taken at night, they bring on sleepiness that we so dearly need. *
