What Ingredients Give You That Restful Sleep?

Do you ever think about how awesome it’d be if there was a list of yummy things we could eat to get a good night’s sleep — all relaxed, no interrupted patterns? Can you imagine how good it would feel to get a proper 8 hours and wake up completely refreshed and ready to take on the day?

Well, think no more because Welly’s Restful Sleep Gummies are the dream (pun intended)! And this isn’t just talk, it’s science.

Our Restful Sleep Gummy Pops are a mild sleep-inducer and improve non-restorative sleep, help regulate the circadian rhythm, improve sleep quality and cognitive function, and help in relieving stress too.

What’s more — they’re made of real, scientifically-backed ingredients like melatonin, chamomile, l-theanine, chicory root fiber, pectin, and locust bean gum. Well you might wonder, what exactly do these ingredients do that creates a calming effect on the body? 

Here are the ingredients which give you that restful sleep:

1. Melatonin: This naturally occurring hormone reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and regulates the body's sleep cycle for better ZZZs.

Melatonin is a hormone that your brain produces in response to darkness. It helps with the timing of your circadian rhythms (24-hour internal clock) and with sleep. Being exposed to light at night can block melatonin production. Research suggests that melatonin plays other important roles in the body beyond sleep.

2. L-Theanine: This amino acid found in green tea leaves promotes relaxation, helps reduce stress and improves sleep quality.

Theanine is an amino acid found in tea and some mushrooms. People use L-theanine to improve mental function. It is also used for anxiety, mental impairment, stress, and other conditions such as stress relief, better immunity, and blood pressure management.

3. Chamomile: Or should we say, calm-omile? These daisy-like flowers calm the mind, helping you relax and restore.

Chamomile tea has long been used, as a traditional folk remedy, for a wide range of health issues. Nowadays, it’s become a very common anxiety-fix. 

The benefits of chamomile tea, for which there is the most scientific evidence, include: reducing menstrual pain, treating diabetes and lowering blood sugar, slowing or preventing osteoporosis, reducing inflammation, helping with sleep and relaxation and treating cold symptoms.

4. Chicory Root Fiber: A fiber found in chicory plants (also used as a substitute for coffee powder)— this prebiotic helps regulate blood sugar levels and aids healthy digestion.

Not only do many people enjoy chicory root's earthy flavor, but it has also been connected with a variety of health-based benefits. It’s packed with prebiotics for healthy digestion and promotes gut health. It even supports weight loss and may improve blood-sugar control!

5. Pectin: Fruit fiber! This key nutrient promotes good digestive health and is found in apples, oranges, berries and other citrus fruits.

Pectin is used to make medicine — people use pectin for high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and to prevent colon cancer and prostate cancer. It is also used for diabetes and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Supplementing with pectin may offer several potential health benefits like improvement in blood sugar and blood fat levels, healthy weight, betterment in gastrointestinal issues, and a decrease in risk for colon cancer.

6. Locust Bean Gum: Locust bean gum is a natural, plant-based, vegan food thickener used in many commercial products. It is primarily made of fiber.

Gut check! This natural gum comes from the seeds of the carob tree. It's a soluble fiber that improves gut health by increasing good bacteria. It helps improve digestive conditions, reduces reflux in infants when added to formula and may improve blood fat and blood sugar levels.

So enough said, right? The ingredients in Welly’s Restful Sleep Gummy Pops don’t only give you the sleep of your dreams, but also help maintain your blood-sugar levels and promote healthy digestion while keeping a check on your gut health.
