Stuff has got to be easily one of my favorite sleep aid supplements ever, I've bounced through a bunch of different products but i wake up feeling a lot more alert and mentally focused. Also it helps me fall asleep easier and the best part is an entire bottle lasts 75 DAYS!! In my opinion it is a border-line perfect product, it's the first I've seen and felt a noticeable change in my sleep even get some wild dreams sometimes too some are a little inappropriate haha
Sleep is the most essential aspect of our well being and health.
Almost all cell regeneration and growth happens when we sleep. In other words, we rest and repair, when we sleep. When we don't get enough sleep, your body does not fully recover. When we don't fully recovery, it takes a toll on our health; your body and mind are not in its optimal state.
A lack of regular healthy sleep slows down everything from brain function, to muscle growth; its effects can be felt after just one night of poor sleep. When we don't get a good nights sleep, we feel mentally and physically sluggish, run down, and out of it.
Not only is it important to get sleep but it’s equally important to get GOOD SLEEP - uninterrupted healthy deep sleep! Often, we may sleep 8-12 hours and still wake up feeling like we got no rest at all. This is because we did not fall into a deep enough restful sleep and stay there long enough.
Need 2 sleep is a 3 punch combo of ingredients designed to:
· Promote relaxation
· Promote deep restful sleep
· Wake up fully rested
· Promotes more natural energy during the day
· Faster recovery from more intense workouts
There are 2 basic stages in the sleep process: REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep and NREM (non-REM) sleep. NREM sleep is divided further into four sleep stages, numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4. Normal sleep begins with stage 1 and progresses into 2, 3 and 4, getting deeper with each stage. The deepest sleep is achieved at stages 3 and 4. (This is also the stage during which HGH and melatonin is released by the pineal gland). The fifth stage, which is actually lighter, is REM sleep, during which dreaming occurs.
The different sleep stages are also referred to as S-sleep (synchronized EEG pattern sleep) and D-sleep (desynchronized EEG pattern sleep). D-sleep is the same as REM, or dream sleep. S-sleep is another name for NREM, (also known as orthodox or quiet sleep).
The five stages of sleep:
Stage 1: As we fall asleep, we enter the transition state called stage 1 and begin our first "sleep cycle". This very light sleep stage usually lasts 2-5 minutes. If sleep remains undisturbed it will progress to stage 2 sleep. Stage 1 contributes 2-5 % of normal sleep, (but increases hugely in cases of insomnia and disorders that produce frequent arousal such as apnea).
Stage 2: This is a much deeper sleep than stage 1. The brain waves go into theta mode, and lead into stages 3 and 4 in around 10-20 minutes. Stage 2 sleep occupies approximately 50-65% of our sleep time, lasting 15-30 minutes in each cycle. During the latter part of the night we spend more and more time alternating between stages 2 & REM sleep.
Stage 3: - A deeper sleep than stage 2. The muscles are relaxed, heart rate slows down, blood pressure falls, and breathing is steady. Brain activity slows down dramatically from the theta pattern of stage 2 to a much slower rhythm of 1 to 2 cycles per second called 'delta', and the height, or amplitude, of the waves increases.
Stage 4: - The deepest sleep of all, during which a sleeping person is 'dead to the world'. Blood pressure and heart rate fluctuate and the sleeper's brain heats up. Delta sleep is characterized by very high voltage slow brain waves. It is similar to being in a coma, but unlike a coma, it's reversible. As we transverse these first four stages of sleep, our respiration and heart rate slow and the body is almost immobile.
Stage 5: - REM (rapid eye movement). All of a sudden, after 20-30 minutes of slow wave sleep, we transfer back into stage 2, and almost immediately change gears into very active brain wave pattern known as REM sleep. Simultaneous with this transfer into REM, our respiration and heart rate increases substantially and we lose our ability to use our postural or skeletal muscle. The first REM period lasts only about ten minutes. After that, the sleeper goes back into a deep stage 4 sleep. Again, the sleeper returns into a REM stage after a short period, and cycles through REM and stage 4 continue until the sleeper awakens. Along with this, our brain becomes so activated that we start to hallucinate and dream. Our eyes move as they do in our waking state, and relative to what we are dreaming. In effect, we are at this stage, a highly activated brain in a paralyzed body. This paradoxical state will last 10-20 minutes and then we "fall" back down into stage 2 again.
What’s in Need 2 Sleep?
The first ingredient in Need 2 Sleep is Valerian root. The major constituents of Valerian root include: sesquterpenoids, valepotriates, bornyl acetate, and valerenic acid. Multiple compounds in valerian root have pharmacologic activity. Valerenic acid has been shown to inhibit enzyme-induced breakdown and the inhibition of reuptake of the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (gaba) in the brain. Basically, this means that the brain chemical GABA can last longer and lead to sedation. Valerenic acid, an active constituent of valerian root extract, stimulates chloride currents through GABA ( A) receptors. Valerenic acid is a subunit specific allosteric modulator of GABA (A) receptors that most likely interacts with the loreclezole binding pocket.
Clinical research shows that valerian root improves overall sleep quality,…
…shortening the length of time it takes to fall asleep and helping people get more sound sleep. Valerian root seems to make more an impact on those getting poor sleep. Nowadays, more people than not are getting poor sleep. In one double blind study on sleep disorders, 44 percent of the test group reported perfect sleep and 89 percent noted significant improvement after taking valerian root, in comparison with placebo.
