Is your body getting the sleep it needs?
When it comes to a good night's rest, sleep needs tend to vary on an individual basis. There are many factors, such as daily energy expenditure and coexisting health issues, that play a role in helping determine how much sleep the body needs.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, healthy adults typically require 7-9 hours of sleep each night for optimal function. What many don't realize, however, is that it's not just the total amount of sleep that's important but rather the amount of quality sleep we get each night. Unfortunately, obtaining enough quality rest can be a challenge, especially when more than 65 million Americans chronically suffer from some sort of sleep disorder .
Signs you may not be getting enough sleep
Quality sleep is paramount to overall health and wellness. With a lack of sleep, you may notice some of the following:
- You're irritable and moody
- Your ability to focus declines
- You find it difficult to get out of bed
- You crave junk food and may even gain weight
- Your immunity is compromised and you get sick more often
There are many natural ways to prepare your body for a good night's sleep, but incorporating CBD and melatonin into your nightly regimen may be exactly what your body has been needing for so long.
Both CBD and melatonin are well-known ingredients that help aid in providing restful sleep*, but why and how?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a phytocannabinoid found in industrial hemp plants. It has been studied for a range of health benefits and is capable of affecting nearly every internal system via the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). According to the Sleep Foundation, CBD is commonly used to improve the quality of sleep for individuals along with decreasing anxiety .
Melatonin is a hormone that the brain naturally produces in response to darkness to help regulate the body's sleep-wake cycles (circadian rhythm/internal clock). Levels of Melatonin rise throughout the evening, putting the body in a state of quiet wakefulness, and peak during nighttime hours to promote natural sleep. So you can think of melatonin as the signal to the brain that it is time to sleep!
While the average body produces an adequate amount of Melatonin for sleep on its own, the natural production of this hormone is known to decline with age. Research has also suggested that Melatonin deficit is partly responsible for certain sleep disorders. Thankfully, there are steps that can be taken to make the most of the body's Melatonin production and support restful sleep - Such as adding in a nighttime Melatonin supplement from a natural, high quality source.
