Remrise is a subscription-based sleep supplement company that provides a proprietary mixture of supplements to be taken daily about an hour before going to sleep.

My Remrise Findings

It’s clear that Remrise put a lot of time and effort into developing an optimal blend of ingredients for sleep that you can use on a regular basis that will continue to be effective night after night.

Remrise worked for me the first night. I took mine about an hour before I wanted to fall asleep. I prefer the pills just because it is easier to take by my bedside but the powder is just as effective.

remrise review

They are slightly on the larger side so if you don’t like swallowing pills, this may not be the solution for you.

remrise pills

The powder has a pleasant smell and mixes easily with water, milk or whatever non-caffeinated drink you prefer before bed.

remrise powder

I found Remrise to be more effective than my typical sleep aid, Melatonin. Melatonin is great for helping you fall asleep but chances are you will wake up within a few hours if you aren’t that sleepy and may have trouble getting back to sleep. With Remrise, I was able to stay asleep all night. I still had to get up to use the bathroom at night but I was able to fall asleep soon after getting back to bed.

Keep in mind that it may take a few nights of continued use to notice the full effect. By night 3 I was sleeping great and continue to have more restful sleep a week after starting.

A monthly subscription is about $50 for the pill form which has 28 servings and the powder form is $90 per month with about 30 servings which is pretty expensive for supplements but in my opinion, it may be worth trying if other over-the-counter supplements just aren’t working.

In conclusion, Remrise is a sophisticated take on sleep supplements and I think they are worth considering for people that aren’t responding to other sleep supplements currently available.

<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="https://sleepsherpa.com/cbd-oil-benefits/" rel="bookmark">CBD Oil Benefits – The Complete Guide</a></h2>

Recently updated on January 30th, 2019 at 11:35 am

CBD Oil has come under the spotlight, especially in the US, in recent times and has been touted for its many health benefits. Its association with marijuana, however, is still perceived negatively by many who ergo keep this wonderful oil at bay. In this article, we will take a closer look at some of CBD oil benefits and the science behind it. Without any further ado, let’s get started.

known cbd oil benefitsCBD Oil Benefits for Diabetes and Obesity

A whopping 100 million adults in the US are now officially either diabetic or pre-diabetic, and the epidemic seems to be creeping into minors as well. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association has revealed that over 32% of American men and over 35% of American women are obese (more than just overweight).

While everyone has a row about whether a plant-based diet is a way to go or a ketogenic diet is truly what can help reverse type 2 diabetics, we should not overlook CBD oil benefits for both diabetes and obesity.

So, what do the studies say?

  • A 2011 American Journal of Epidemiology study found that rates of obesity in a sample group as large as 52,000 cannabis users were only 1/3rd the prevalent rates in the general population.
  • Another study found that the use of CBD resulted in a lowering of the diabetes incidence rate in mice.
  • Research supports that CBD aides in weight loss by acting as a catalyst in the conversion of white fat into brown fat.

Improved Cholesterol Profile and Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

A Staggering 1 in 4 deaths in the US is due to heart disease. Again, while lifestyle, diet and genetic predisposition are some of the main factors that determine your risk of a heart attack or heart disease. There are certainly other things along the way that can either add to the risk or take away from it. Thankfully, CBD oil benefits include a reduction in the risk of heart disease and also an improved cholesterol profile as studies have concluded.

  • A study from 2013 concluded that CBD oil users had a higher level of good cholesterol in their blood than their counterparts.
  • More studies also provide evidence to support that endocannabinoid signaling plays a crucial role in the pathology of atherogenesis.
  • Initial clinical studies on animals also proved that CBD oil in low orally ingested doses had a cardioprotective effect during the induction of a heart attack.

Lowered Risk of Cancer

CBD oil benefits are several, but there is a growing amount of evidence which is starting to suggest that it might have some tumor-fighting properties as well.

  • Animal trials conducted in 2012 suggests that animals that were medicated with CBD oil actually responded positively in terms of a reduction in the likelihood of developing colon cancer. These animals were deliberately given carcinogens for the sake of the test.
  • Numerous studies have already shown that THC doesn’t only prevent tumors but also helps in preventing them in the first place.
  • A 2015 data analysis done by scientists where the records of 84,000 male patients revealed that patients that had used cannabis, and not tobacco had a 45% lower bladder cancer rate than the other group.

Mental Health Benefits

CBD oil and cannabinoids, in general, are neuroprotective, which means that they play a vital role in regulating brain health. One of the ways in which CBD oil does this is by removal of damaged cell, and another is through improved efficiency of mitochondria. Furthermore, CBD Oil is also said to reduce glutamate toxicity which is responsible for over firing of brain cells by over – stimulation which causes pre – mature cell death.

  • A recent study suggests that CBD oil benefits include having an anti-inflammatory effect on the brain.
  • Another study, which was done in 2008, in lower dosages, CBD oil actually stimulated the birth and development of new brain cells, even in older brains.
  • CBD oil benefits the brain and protects against Alzheimer’s and other nerve-related degenerative diseases.

Protection Against Bone Disease

The bone that is aging is replaced by the new bone substrate, and the rate at which this happens annually is approximately 10% in humans. This process is natural and critical for strong, healthy bones and skeletal framework altogether. There are numerous CBD oil benefits when it comes to healthy bones in humans.

  • A study using CBD oil showed that CBD oil actually reduced the build-up for destructive bone compounds that work by destroying bone-building compounds.
  • CBD explicitly also stimulates the process of healing of broken bones at an accelerated rate, as per another study.
  • Another CBD oil benefit is protection against recurring fracture in a bone that has already been fractured once and is vulnerable to another. This study revealed that fractured and healed bones in the CBD focus group were 35% stronger, on average, that the non – CBD counterpart.

Fights Skin Ailments and Helps Keep Skin Healthy

In human physiology, the skin is the organ with the single highest concentration of CB2 receptors. CBD oil can literally be applied topically on the skin, and there are a multitude of CBD oil benefits for the skin when it is used this way.

  • It helps repair against free radical damage, reverse free radical damage and could also prevent free radical damage on the skin to a certain extent as per studies.
  • It can help in the proper regulation of oil from the sebaceous glands of the skin
  • CBD oil based topical creams and oils are already popular products for the treatment of skin conditions such as acne and even psoriasis.

Worry not, Cannabis when used topically cannot be psychoactive, and so you will not experience any “high.”

Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of CBD

Several studies have concluded that CBD oil has anti-inflammatory benefits. It does this by way of engaging with the Endocannabinoid system across all organs of the human body and assists in bring down inflammation. Inflammation is the cause of a wide range of diseases and the fact that CBD oil benefits include anti-inflammatory properties make it even more of a holistic medicine than initially thought.

Reducing Cortisol

Cortisol is the stress hormone, and in this day and age, it is usually elevated in the average American. The plant has been used from centuries ago to reduce anxiety and calm down people. However, it must be noted that some studies have shown that in certain patients, Cannabis can have a reverse effect and actually increase anxiety and even lead to panic attacks.

In general, CBD oil is shown to reduce stress-related activity in the Limbic and Paralimbic parts of the brain directly.

Other better – known CBD oil benefits, include the treatment of Insomnia and other sleep disorders and also to alleviate pain naturally, it is said to be one of the most effective treatments.

Sleep Relief NBI

I was given a bottle of the  Sleep Relief sleep supplement for review and I was really impressed by its efficacy not only to help me fall asleep but keep me asleep throughout the night. NBI is a family-owned company started by Dr. John Neustadt who has an international reputation as a researcher and integrative medical expert. He is frequently cited in medical literature and creates formulations based on reviews of thousands of scientific studies. You can read more about his accomplishments here but in short, NBI is not just another supplement company.

A vast number of people in the US and around the world suffer from sleep-related disorders. Blame it on lifestyle changes or poor sleep hygiene, but sleep disorders are on the rise. This isn’t good news because failing to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night can increase the risk of several major health problems.

No one likes to be sleep-starved, and this is evident from the endless means people are willing to try for better rest. Sleeping pills are the most common means that people resort to when they can’t sleep. There was a time when sleeping pills had to be prescribed by a doctor. But now, over-the-counter sleeping pills are easily available for everyone to buy whenever they want and keep popping them for better sleep. This isn’t always the right thing to do, because sleeping pills become addictive and increase the user’s dependence on them. But since they work almost instantly, they remain popular despite the various side effects.

Given that sleeping pills will never go out of business, pharmaceutical companies are coming up with healthier versions of sleep aids. Sleeping pills usually have a lot of synthetic chemicals, with long-term side effects. But the healthier versions of sleeping pills help people fall asleep gently without becoming addictive.

Sleep Relief by leading healthcare company NBI Health is one such sleep aid that claims to be non- addictive and made from herbal ingredients. These promises have already made this product a huge hit in the market.

Background of Sleeping Pills

From the ancient times, there have been various forms of sleeping aid available. Excessive alcohol consumption led to drowsiness and sleep while certain herbs were also used for better sleep at night. Sleeping pills as we know them today has been available from as early as the late 19th century. Until then different kinds of herbs were utilized by people to make sleep potions. From the late 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, chemistry progressed and led to the invention of formal drugs to induce sleep. In fact, morphine derived from opium was one of the leading sleep medications of the time, and so were cannabis. Even Queen Victoria used to be prescribed cannabis for pain relief and better sleep.

Right from the beginning, sleep medications have been widely abused. Even until the early 1970s sleep medication was only prescribed by a doctor. Only after the late 1980s, over-the-counter sleeping pills started to be available. A very popular sleep supplement today is a melatonin which boosts the melatonin production in the body and brings on better sleep. Old formulations are also been revised to be made more effective. Because of the craze surrounding natural products, herbal sleep supplements have gained worldwide popularity.

Sleep Relief Review and Ingredients

Sleep Relief BottleNBI claims that Sleep Relief is made with a proprietary “bi-phasic, time-release technology.” This means the nutrients are released in two stages. First comes the quick-release stage, where nutrients are delivered and start acting in 30 to 45 minutes, naturally promoting rest and helping the user gently fall asleep. Next comes the second stage, which is called the sustained-release phase. In this stage, the rest of the nutrients are delivered over the next four hours, helping the user stay asleep throughout the night.

This supplement claims to be nonaddictive and does not make the user dependent on the drug. The ingredients used in the product directly act on the entire sleep cycle to gently promote relaxation and sleep. The major ingredients in the product are:

Melatonin: This sleep hormone is used in various sleep supplements in minimal quantities. When people have low melatonin production, they find it hard to fall or stay asleep. Sleep Relief contains just 1 mg of melatonin, which when combined with the other ingredients boost melatonin production.

Magnesium: Sleep Relief also contains magnesium, which is a gentle muscle relaxer. It helps the body and mind relax and get into a state of rest.

Amino acids: This sleep aid also contains a number of sleep-promoting amino acids such as: L-Tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin, the mood-boosting hormone, and melatonin, the sleep hormone; L-Theanine, which boost Alpha wave brain activity helping the person fall asleep quickly; and Glycine and GABA, which are nutrients acting like calming neurotransmitters to promote rest and relaxation.

Herbs: Sleep Relief contains numerous healing and adaptogenic herbs. The herbs hops and skullcap have been around since ancient times and have been used for healing and relaxation purposes. The adaptogenic herbs Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) and Jujube (Ziziphus jujuba) are widely used in traditional Asian medicine for stress relief, relaxation and sleep. All of these herbs are added as standardized extracts to maintain consistency and uniformity.

My Sleep Relief Findings

The serving size listed on the bottle is two caps which is a 30 day supply per bottle. I took two caps to start but eventually went down to 1 cap which was still effective for me.

Here’s what the capsules look like. They are about as big as a penny.

sleep relief pills

Normally I will take 2-3 milligrams of melatonin to help me fall asleep. Although that will definitely help me fall asleep I notice that I will wake up about 2 hours later and then have trouble falling back asleep. That’s why I like Sleep Relief pills. They help keep me asleep for more uninterrupted sleep. I don’t take them often, but I am glad that I have them to keep me on a regular sleep schedule.

I have tried many over the count sleep supplements but so far Sleep Relief has without a doubt been the most effective for me.

Sleep Relief is priced at $32 for one bottle, which contains 60 tablets. The product is wheat- , corn- , dairy- , and soy-free, and have no added colors, preservatives or flavors. As of now, it is only available on the NBI website.

The Best Sleep Supplements for Getting a Better Night’s Rest

When it comes to the topic of natural sleep aids, it gets rather confusing, doesn’t it? What works, and what does not? Are they safe?  There are so many questions when you think of natural sleep supplements. Sleep is important as it is when your body repairs and heals itself and rejuvenates. When you do not get enough proper sleep, it affects your health, making you more prone to health issues. This is why you should find a good sleep supplement if you cannot sleep or do not get enough sleep. Luckily, there are quite a few excellent sleep supplements that can help you get the restful sleep you need.

Here is a look at some of the best sleep supplements that you can use to get better sleep and wake up every morning feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to take on the world:

Multivitamin: Do you know that nutrition plays a vital role in fighting insomnia and other sleep problems? Most people do not eat the right amounts of fruits and vegetables every day to give their body the nutrients it needs. Fact: shortage in nutrition can affect sleep and leave you feeling fatigued. You should take a good multivitamin daily to improve your ability to sleep and get the night’s rest your body needs.

Calcium and Magnesium: Your daily diet should have adequate amounts of calcium and magnesium as they are important nutrients that help you relax and ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. Magnesium may be particularly helpful in stress and fatigue reduction. Multivitamins do not contain much of these two nutrients so you may need to take a supplement if you lack these two essential nutrients in your diet.  You should also make sure that you get a minimum of 400 IU of Vitamin D3 daily. This vitamin plays a critical role in the absorption of calcium in your body.

Melatonin: This is a natural hormone that helps in regulating your sleep-wake cycle, also known as circadian cycles. According to studies, melatonin does not only help some people fall asleep, but it also enhances sleep quality. Experts say that it comes in two forms – immediate release and extended release. If you have difficulty falling asleep, the immediate release may be the better option to take before bedtime. For those who tend to wake up in the middle of the night, extended relief may be better. Melatonin supplements can also be an effective treatment for certain sleep disorders, including jet lag.

Kava: A member of the pepper family, the Kava plant has been shown to help in relieving anxiety. A review of six studies showed that patients who took Kava showed reduced anxiety compared with patients who took a placebo. According to another small study, Kava helps in improving sleep in people suffering from stress-related insomnia. However, it is important to consult a doctor before using Kava supplements to find out if it is safe for you as the FDA has issued a warning that there is a link between this supplement and the risk for severe liver damage.

Passion Flower: As you may already know, passion flower has a wide range of health benefits, including calming and anti-anxiety effects. Anxiety can have a major effect on sleep as you are unable to turn your brain off, in particular when you are trying to get some rest. Passion flower supplement is great as it can have a calming effect that helps in stopping that vicious cycle of thought. It has been found that passionflower is one of the most effective natural anti-anxiety sleep aids that do not result in lingering fatigue the next day.

St. John’s Wort: Do you have trouble sleeping due to depression? St. John’s Wort supplements may be the solution to your problem. According to recent studies, this herb contains chemicals like adhyperforin and hyperforin which act as small messengers in the brain that affect mood and work as effective and powerful antidepressants. If it is your depression that is keeping you from sleeping or getting a full night of restful sleep, it may be worthwhile to try out St. John’s Wort supplements to treat the depression. If it works, you may be able to get the rest and sleep that your body and mind need.

While many people use over-the-counter sleep aids to help them with their sleep problems, they do not realize that these OTC products may cause serious side effects in the long run and over time, lose their effectiveness. Natural sleep supplements like the ones mentioned above are safer and better options, plus they work very well in treating various sleep disorders, helping you sleep better and thereby improving your health.

 

 

Sprayable Sleep Review 1

Sprayable Sleep Review

The latest development in sleep aids has just hit the market, Sprayable Sleep. What is it? It’s a topical melatonin spray that works as effectively as the pill form.

Here are the claims from the company website.

WHY SPRAY:

  • Get to sleep on your schedule
  • Wake up looking more rested and relaxed
  • A low dose of topical melatonin
  • Just 3 simple ingredients – Melatonin, Water, Tyrosine ( a derivative of a natural amino acid)

WHAT ELSE:

  • Fully certified, tested, and manufactured in a US CGMP Facility
  • Developed by an industry leading PhD in Chemistry and housed in Stanford University’s StartX Startup Program
  • Launched with the most funded consumable product crowdfunding campaign of all time

I was given 3 bottles of sprayable sleep. I have used it about seven time since receiving the product and find it to be convenient and easier to pack and lighter than a bottle of pills when I travel.

Findings

As instructed, I sprayed twice on each side of my neck about an hour before bedtime. I did notice that this takes a little longer than the pill form to start working. Usually I start getting drowsy within an hour after taking a melatonin pill. With this product it was more like an hour and a half. Not sure if thats because it takes longer to permeate my skin but it consistently took an hour and a half every time I used it.

For a sense of scale here’s the size of the bottle in my hand

sprayable sleep

sprayable sleep

Like I said this product works it just takes a little longer to kick in as compared to the pill form of melatonin. So, it really comes down to preference. Usually with melatonin pillow you are supposed to let them dissolve in your mouth instead of swallowing whole. So if you don’t want any chalky after taste, this may be the ticket.

You can get sprayable sleep from their website.

Sleep-X Review 3

Sleep-X Review

Recently updated on June 8th, 2016 at 05:21 pm

Editor’s Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you make a purchase using these links. For full details visit the disclosures page.


I was recently given a bottle of Sleep-X to try from the company, 88 Herbs. Sleep-X is an herbal sleep aid that promotes tiredness and helps you to fall asleep fast and stay asleep. Here is a brief overview of the product:

Ingredients

  • For an incredibly deep and natural sleep
  • Fall asleep quickly, sleep soundly all night, wake up refreshed
  • Made with the most potent herbal extracts and purest amino acids
  • L Theanine, Melatonin, Magnesium Bisglycinate, Passionflower 20%, L Tryptophan, 5 HTP, Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) (See below for more info)
  • Pure vegetarian capsules, zero fillers, 3rd party lab tested for purity

The capsules are easy to swallow and don’t have any fowl taste.

Results

I really wanted to put this Sleep-X to the test. So, this past Saturday I had an energy drink late afternoon as I was tired from staying up late the previous night. I didn’t realize how much caffeine was in my energy drink called “Bang” until I researched it the following day.

Bang energy drink caffeine level

As you can see, this has loads of caffeine. For reference, 1 can of mountain dew has about 50 mg of caffeine.

I was really wired for the rest of the day and was worried that I wouldn’t fall asleep. Around 10:30 pm that evening I took 1 Sleep-X pill. I noticed that after about 20 minutes I started to feel more relaxed  and I was asleep about 1 hour after taking the pill.

What I like about Sleep-X over other sleep aids is that it leverages multiple herbs that are known to promote sleep. I normally just take melatonin which on its own works fast and effectively but If I have caffeine in the evening or wake up worried during the middle of the night, I find it hard to fall back asleep. I’m not sure if that’s because the melatonin wore off or something else.

Sleep-X only contains 1.5 mg of melatonin, I normally take 3 mg. But, I don’t think it requires any more than that because it is aided by the L-Tryptophan 5 HTP and Passionflower.

Sleepx ingredients

 

I think that the passionflower and l-tryptophan played a part in me staying asleep. Normally I would wake up a few times at night with even half this amount of caffeine.

In the morning I wasn’t groggy or tired. Just woke up normally ready to start my day.  Sleep-X sells on Amazon.com for $19.95 which is a bit more than plain melatonin but I appreciate how all the ingredients compliment each other. I try not to take any sleep supplements on a regular basis so this bottle should last me a long time and I think its a very modest investment in a good nights sleep.

melatonin works

I use melatonin when I know i need to fall asleep fast or when I’m anxious about something and know that it might impair my sleep. Melatonin works for me all the time, every time. However, there are circumstances where it becomes less effective. In this article from Yahoo, When Melatonin Works — And When It Doesn’t — To Help You Sleep Better there are specific reasons given for why taking a melatonin will not work.

I’ve never had an instance where I took melatonin and didn’t get sleepy within 30 minutes. Melatonin works fast so if it’s not working right away, within an hour, it probably won’t help.

I recommend Source Naturals Melatonin for it’s adequate dosage, efficacy and taste.
