2024 is all about perfecting our bedtime habits and sleep routines. 

In this blog, we'll dive into our top sleep picks...

Organic Chamomile Flower (Loose Leaf)

Chamomile is a daisy-like plant that can be found throughout Europe, Africa & Asia, it has been used in herbal remedies for centuries. 

When dried, chamomile flowers are often used to make an antioxidant-rich herbal tea, which is commonly drunk towards the night due to its presumed "sedative properties."(1)

Chamomile naturally contains apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to certain receptors in your brain that may promote sleepiness (2). 

In a study taken with postnatal women, it was found that the women who drank chamomile tea for two weeks reported better sleep quality, in comparison to a group that did not drink chamomile tea. They also had fewer symptoms of depression, which is often linked with sleeping problems (3).

Magnesium Bisglycinate 

Magnesium is an essential mineral that helps your body perform various tasks, such as normal muscle function, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and more. 

Magnesium Bisglycinate in particular has become a popular pre-bed supplement due to its believed sleep and relaxation properties. 

Researchers believe that magnesium may promote better sleep in various ways such as reducing the stress hormone cortisol, increasing one of the sleep-promoting hormones called melatonin, and helping to regulate neurotransmitters for the central nervous system (CNS) (4).

Apigenin 

Apigenin is present in many fruits, vegetables, and herbs as the most widely distributed flavonoid in the plant kingdom. Naturally, Apigenin can be found in foods such as chamomile, oranges, celery, spearmint, and dried parsley.

Apigenin is a very popular pre-bed supplement. It has gained popularity over recent years due to neuroscientists such as Dr. Andrew Huberman speaking on its sleep-inducing benefits (5). 

If it's good enough for Dr. Andrew Huberman, it's good enough for us!

L-Theanine

L-Theanine is a non-essential amino acid that is found naturally in green tea.

L-theanine can be found in certain mushrooms and green tea but is otherwise rare in diet.

Research suggests that L-theanine may affect sleep by influencing several neurotransmitters and promoting relaxing brain activity.

L-theanine crosses the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to rapidly affect neurotransmitters within the central nervous system. (6)
