If you’re having trouble sleeping, you are certainly not alone. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one-third of all American adults are not getting enough sleep. The Sleep Research Society recommends that adults get at least seven hours of sound sleep each night. How do you measure up?
Why is sleep such a big deal? Lack of sleep is associated with increased risk of obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Not getting enough quality sleep is also associated with increased inflammation and reduced immunity, which is a dangerous combination that can profoundly and negatively impact health on many levels. So you see, sleep really is a big deal.
When we sleep, our bodies are actively repairing, balancing, and rejuvenating cells and tissues. For example, the liver, which is the main organ of detoxification, is most active when we are sleeping. So if we are not getting enough sleep, the body does not have time to internally do the work it needs to do to keep us healthy.
Not surprisingly, the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates the proper function of a wide range of body processes, is also intimately involved with sound sleep. When dealing with sleep issues, supporting the ECS is a key strategy.
One way to effectively support sleep and the ECS on a very deep level is to take herbal extracts in the right combination. These herbs are considered “phytocannabinoids” and they positively impact the ECS without the use of cannabis. The key ingredients to support sound sleep in Endo Sleep are passion flower extract, PharmaGaba, magnolia bark, and organic hemp seed oil. On their own, these herbs are effective but when they are combined, they become a powerful blend that supports sleep, as well as the ECS.
Passion flower in particular is an excellent herb that has been used for centuries to support sleep. Modern science has also confirmed its effects. By combining passion flower with PharmaGaba (a special amino acid), organic hemp seed oil (an essential fatty acid), and other herbs like magnolia, we have created a more powerful synergistic product to provide clinically significant improvement in sleep.
As with all Emerald Health products, Endo Sleep contains the PhytoCann Complex. This propriety combination of six key herbal extracts provides additional synergistic support to the ECS on multiple levels, including sound sleep. The combination of these herbs—clove oil, Echinacea, Sichuan pepper, peony, ginger, and magnolia—create an effective foundation to support the active hero ingredients in all Emerald Health products.
If you are like millions of other Americans and you struggle to get the amount of sleep you need or the quality of sleep you deserve, try Endo Sleep. Sound sleep is just one of the benefits you will receive when you support the ECS on a profound and deep level. To help put an end to your sleep struggles ask for Endo Sleep.
