For many Canadians, sleep does not come easy. An estimated 1 in 2 adults have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep.
The factors affecting sleep quality and amount are many, from high stress levels, poor diet, lack of physical activity and poor mental health. Stress itself can arise from a multitude of causes, from a demanding job and long commute to family obligations and health issues. And since many people are simply too busy during the day to properly process their hectic lives, it’s only when the world around them quiets down at night that these stresses are free to make themselves known. And when those thoughts, worries and anxieties start swirling around the mind, a restful night’s sleep might seem a million miles away. It’s no wonder Canadians are having a hard time getting enough rest!
Compounding the issue is our ever-worsening dependence upon our smartphones and tablets, catching up on emails or binge-watching the latest Netflix series while lying in bed. Consequently, we’re often stimulated by screens right up until the moment we close our eyes. These devices can be physiologically and psychologically stimulating and negatively affect our ability to get to sleep.
Sisu Sweet Dreams helps to restore and maintain healthy sleep patterns to bring back restful nights for body and mind. If you feel like your mind is racing every time you try and fall asleep, this formula can help calm overactive thoughts and reduce anxiety. It contains natural, sleep-promoting L-Theanine, chamomile and lemon balm to promote mental relaxation and help “quiet the brain.” It works by balancing neurotransmitter levels in the brain, and can improve long-term sleep quality, without the side effects common to many prescription sleeping pills.
Sisu Sweet Dreams also contains lavender extract, traditionally used to reduce restlessness, insomnia, nervousness and depression. This fact-acting, non-habit-forming formula enhances the quality of sleep without causing drowsiness or other side effects — so you wake up refreshed, not sluggish.
And, if you’ve overdone it on the coffee during the day, Sisu Sweet Dreams can help reduce caffeine jitters. It starts working rapidly and lasts for hours, so you can get the rest needed to take on whatever tomorrow might bring. Sisu Sweet Dreams is non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free and can be taken together with melatonin.
In addition to taking Sisu Sweet Dreams, try swapping your evening Netflix show for a chapter of the latest bestseller. This limits the exposure you have to the blue light emitted from cellphones and TV screens which delays your body’s internal clock, suppresses the release of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin, and makes it more difficult to fall asleep. Bonus: you’ll be all caught up in time for book club!
