At some point in recent history, everyone started talking about sleep. In 2014, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) even declared sleep deprivation a public health epidemic. Two years later, Ariana Huffington launched Thrive Global, a platform aimed at combatting stress and burnout culture in order to change the way we sleep.
Clearly, lack of sleep had become a major problem for many adults. But getting enough sleep isn’t just about having more energy in the morning. Proper sleep boosts your work performance, concentration, health, and even your personal relationships.
So how do we get more sleep!? Regular exercise, meditation, and shutting down tech before bed can all help drastically improve your sleep habits, while natural remedies like magnesium and melatonin can help you fall asleep more easily and stay asleep longer. But recent studies also show that CBD can help dramatically by easing anxiety and pain, both of which can make it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep.
Baseline REM Ritual features 25mg CBD (precisely dosed for effectiveness without the grogginess) plus a powerful combination of natural these plant-based wonders to help you reset your circadian rhythm and get the most out of your sleep. We’re big believers in each of these ingredients, and with good reason;
This well-known sleep aid superpower is a natural hormone your body produces that works with your body’s internal clock, your circadian rhythm. It lets you know when it’s time to sleep, wake and eat. Melatonin levels start to rise in your body when it is dark outside, signaling to your body that it is time to sleep. It also binds to receptors in the body and can help you relax.
About 60% of the magnesium in your body is found in bone, while the rest is in muscles, soft tissues and fluids. You must have this critical mineral for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilize membranes, and to help muscles relax. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff -- whether it is a body part or an even a mood -- could be a sign of magnesium deficiency. The mineral is an antidote to stress, the most powerful relaxation mineral available, and it can help improve your sleep.
Jujube extract is the final ingredient in our sleep formula. Jujube is a small, shrub-like plant native to areas of Asia and Australia and the edible fruit is similar to a date. One of the strongest benefits of jujube is its ability to calm the mind, quiet neural activity, and help induce and sustain sleep. Both flavonoids and saponins—bioactive compounds found in jujube—have also been shown to increase sleep time. Other research indicates that one of the flavonoids in jujube can increase time spent in slow-wave sleep and REM sleep, the two most restorative stages of sleep.
