The Sleep Bite - Chocolate for sleep
Chocolate. You usually don't need an excuse, but what if a little chocolate before bedtime could be just what you need for even better sleep? The Sleep Bite is a bite sized chocolate with a little extra good sleep ingredients.
The Sleep Bite is 14g chocolate (so you don't have to stop yourself eating a slab) with extra ingredients to improve your sleep. 3 common obstacles to sleep are falling asleep, staying asleep, and having a bad sleep cycle. We've tackled all 3 with the Sleep Bite.
What's in it?
- Dark Chocolate (71%)
- Glycine (1000mg)
- L-theanine (250mg)
- L-tryptophan (220mg)
Does it work?
- L-theanine calms the mind and alleviates anxiety so you can fall asleep easier without re-running the days events, or even tomorrows. Usually "turning your brain off" is a key to falling asleep without tossing and turning.
- L-tryptophan converts to melatonin, the sleepy time hormone to help regulate your body clock and sleep deeper. Melatonin is produced when you are supposed to be sleeping, but if your body clock gets a bit messed up, you don't produce it a the right time. The body can use L-tryptophan to make melatonin.
- Glycine helps deeper sleep by lowering the core body temperature. A lower body temperature keeps you sleeping deeper for longer, which allows the body to properly rest.
- Theobromine, which occurs naturally in cocoa promotes healthy sleep length.
