We have to sleep. It’s non-negotiable to our health and safety. We’d argue that everyone has had one of those days or weeks where energy shots and refillable Starbucks cups were the only reason you made it through. The sleep struggle is so real, people are resorting to listening to YouTube videos that make you sleepy just to catch some shut eye.
Doctors are starting to tell us that not everyone needs a full eight hours of sleep or more at night. Some people thrive on less than eight. No matter how many hours you need at night it’s a pain when you can’t fall asleep. You want to sleep but your brain has other plans for you. There are options though. You can watch videos of soothing scratching noisesand listen to fake doctor visits or take some kind of sleep aid like melatonin or valerian.
Melatonin can help to re-set your sleep cycle if it’s out of wack. We prefer melatonin since our bodies naturally make it in the first place to help us fall asleep. In some particular cases, chewing on two Olly Restful Sleep Blackberry Zen Vitamin Gummies could do the trick. Melatonin works really well, especially if you travel a lot or have a work schedule that throws off your body’s internal clock, also known as your body’s circadian rhythm. Keep in mind is that though melatonin can help induce sleep it will not maintain sleep for you.
Swallowing pills is not for everyone and prescription Ambien has been known to cause people to do some epic level sleep walking and sexing…with strangers, so a chewable gummy is definitely a good option for mild-level sleep restoration. Olly is gummy but they contain no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no artificial fillers and no artificial sweeteners so it’s like eating a gummy bear in bed but without all the guilt. If you’re wondering how to take melatonin safely, it’s almost foul proof. Most melatonin supplements provide three to ten milligrams per dosage (Olly has three) and our bodies need about a half milligram to fall asleep. Even though you can’t overdose on melatonin, be sure to talk to your doctor if you’ve never tried melatonin before as it’s still an unregulated supplement and your sleep restoration could be re-set by simply making other changes. Sweet and sweeter dreams!
