Sleep & Weight Loss

You must get an adequate amount of sleep in order to lose weight. Sleep is prime fat burning time. If you don't get enough you throw leptin out of balance, are tired the next day, and want to eat more to try to get your energy going. This invariably leads to overeating and weight gain.

Individuals with sleep deficiency or insomnia may also have concurrent wear and tear that is inducing extra inflammation and aggravating the basic problems of white adipose tissue inflammation. In turn this makes weight management very difficult. Such people must relax more during the day and get their life demands under better control (using stress management skills) so that their body can cool off, calm down, and normal energy production can engage itself.

Our top sleep supplements are Sleep Helper®RelaxaMag, and Melatonin, which are taken before bedtime. Sleep Helper® and RelaxaMag may also be taken during the day, as needed, to offset mild anxiety or stress tension, and help you feel calmer yet stay focused (they do not make you tired when taken during
the day).

Also see our Sleep health topic section for other helpful sleep supplements.
