Getting enough sleep is absolutely paramount when it comes to making exercise and weight loss a success and as someone who struggles with getting the right amount of beauty sleep I decided to try out My Vitamins Complete Sleep.
Sleep is really important as it enables your body to rest and repair itself. Without getting the right amount of sleep you may find that your weight loss plateaus and you quite simply don’t have the energy to exercise. My Vitamins Complete Sleep will help provide the nutrients that you may not get from your diet to help you to get a good nights rest and be ready to face the day ahead of you! As daft as it sounds after only taking them for a couple of days I have really noticed a big difference and I am looking forward to seeing what other benefits it brings my way! Read on to find out more……
My Vitamins Complete Sleep is designed to provide the body with the following nutrients; B6, Zinc, Biotin & 5-HTP. All of these will help your body to wind down, rest and repair itself overnight so you are always starting the day with a clean slate to give your body the best chance it has to succeed at whatever you throw it’s way! Whether you are doing a heavy training schedule get in shape or whether you are simply trying to eat better and lose a few inches, the Complete Sleep supplements will help you along the way in providing those vitamins that your body isn’t producing or your not getting from your diet. So let’s take a deeper look into what each one provides:
B6 – This helps to break down chemicals in your body to utilise protein. If you exercise natural B6 levels will be depleted as a result because it is used for energy production. So by boosting this you are rebuilding the levels used.
Zinc – These helps with healthy bone development and helps your cells to grow, divide and function more efficiently. It also helps to promote a healthy immune system. Zinc is very hard to find in food sources.
Biotin – This helps to prevent symptoms such as insomnia for example because it regulates and controls energy production in cells and how food consumed is turned into energy.
5-HTP – This is a natural amino acid which increases the levels of serotonin and will help to improve your quality of sleep. It increases REM and reduces the time taken to fall asleep, you will find that you wake up less and have a generally much deeper sleep. People with low serotonin levels may notice symptoms such as migraines, tension, depression, insomnia and overeating.
So all of the nutrients combined will help to improve the quality of sleep and should therefore improve the quantity of sleep needed. You will get the sleep you need, and also build up and regulate the energy used to ensure that your bodies levels are more stable and sustainable. The benefit of this is that you will be more likely to feel less exhausted and be ready to smash that workout and because your energy levels are stable you won’t be craving those sugary pick me up and crash snacks.
You take 1 – 4 of these tablets before bedtime for up to 4 weeks at a time and then you can take a 2 week break and start again. So far I have been taking 2 tablets 30 minutes before bedtime and I have to say I am out like a light! And whilst I have woken up a couple of times it’s not to the extent I would normally stir in my sleep and where my quality of sleep has improved I am finding that I am actually waking up earlier than normal and have been ready to get up. There has been none of that grogginess that comes with being shocked by your alarm bursting in to life! I feel really good, and again I am finding that I am snacking less between meals but I don’t feel my energy levels slumping after lunchtime.
I am yet to see if it will affect my measurements. But here they are just in case and I will be revisiting these in a couple of weeks time to see if it is having an affect. But to be honest, my goal is more about not gaining fat rather than losing weight, and to build more lean muscle mass.
