Sleep

  1. Tryptophan can improve sleep and mood if you get it the RIGHT way

    The BIGGEST myth about your Thanksgiving turkey!

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

    I hope you enjoy a delicious feast surrounded by those you care about most, and savor the company as much as the meal.

    Some families laugh. Some argue. Some watch the game...

    But before the day is out, one person is almost guaranteed to yawn with great satisfaction and announce the turkey’s TRYPTOPHAN must be kicking in.

    Well, here’s a little trivia you can whip out in response – along with a far SIMPLER way to get some EASY SLEEP ANY time of year.

    There are plenty of reasons people can feel sleepy late in the day on Thanksgiving.

    Maybe it’s waking up early to cook, or eating lots of delicious food. Maybe it’s the wine, or sugar “crash” from that extra slice of pie.

    But what it’s NOT is the tryptophan!

    While turkey does contain a little tryptophan, it’s really not much… and certainly not even close to the levels you need to feel any effects.

    And that’s a shame.

    Boosting tryptophan is actually a terrific way to boost your mood, ease anxiety and feel nice and relaxed… and it’s also terrific for helping you to sleep.

    But only in the right levels.

    While a turkey dinner won’t do the trick, there are two great ways you can get its all-natural, sleep inducing effect:

    Go right to the source. You can find tryptophan supplements in stores, and 1,000 mg before bed can help knock you right out.

    Taken in smaller doses three times a day, it can also help fight depression.

    Tryptophan supplements work because they help form 5-HTP, which can in turn be transformed into the neurotransmitter serotonin.

    And that brings me to the second way of getting the benefits of tryptophan...

    Skip the middleman. Go right to the 5-HTP. It’s cheaper, easier to find and works faster.

    Just 100 mg three times a day can chase away the anxiety, stress and depression so many people feel, especially here during the holiday season.

    And if you can’t sleep, taking 100-200 mg before bed on an empty stomach will put you into such a deep slumber that Santa and all the reindeer could come through and you wouldn’t know it.

  2. Sleep for more than 8 hours can damage your brain

    Are you sleeping TOO well? (Warning: It could be dangerous)

    Maybe you think you’re one of the lucky ones.

    Sure, everyone else seems to be struggling to get to sleep. But not you! You might find it pretty comforting that you get a solid 8 hours a night.

    And if you get more, that’s even better, right?

    Wrong!

    When it comes to sleep, MORE isn’t always BETTER.

    In many ways, it’s WORSE.

    It’s often a desperate cry from your body that something isn’t quite right – something that needs attention, stat – and I’ll let you in on what it means and how to fix it in a moment.

    First, new research reveals yet again the unexpected danger of “too much” sleep.

    The sweet spot for sleep and brain health is exactly where it is for everything else. It varies a little, from person to person, but for the most part it’s right around 7-8 hours per night.

    If you don’t hit that zone, your cognitive performance starts to suffer, and it can suffer BIG.

    People who sleep too much see dips in function by just about every major measure, with the biggest plunges coming in verbal skills and reasoning.

    In some cases, the cognitive problems of poor sleep – whether it’s too much OR too little – can equal the damage of nearly a decade of aging!

    That’s not the only risk, of course.

    The right levels of sleep are essential to rejuvenating your immune system, helping cells to repair damage and sweeping toxins out of the brain.

    And, again, studies show problems in all three not only in folks who miss out on sleep, but also in people who sleep too much.

    Long sleepers even have a higher risk of death!

    That’s one risk you don’t want to fall asleep on.

    And if you’re sleeping too much yourself, consider this your wakeup call.

    There are three main causes of “hypersominia,” a.k.a. too much sleep.

    One is medication, so if you’re taking anything talk to a doc about your other options.

    The second is an undiagnosed illness or infection, so obviously make sure you’ve had a physical and some blood work done.

    The third is one of the most common undiagnosed hormone conditions in the nation today: adrenal fatigue.

    It’s when your adrenal glands burn out from years of stress, work and exposure to toxins.

    That leads to the kind of life-sapping fatigue that sends you to bed for 9, 10 or even 11 hours at time… and even then, you might still need a nap in the middle of the day!

    But you can fight back.

    An all-natural formula built around rhodiola and ashwagandha can give your adrenals what they need to reverse to toll of stress and toxins, restoring your energy and fighting off all of the risks exposed in the new study.
