Sleep is one of the most vital aspects in the maintenance of good health. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends sleeping between 7 and 8 hours each night to keep an optimal state of physical and emotional health, although the quantity can vary with the needs of the individual. The important thing is to have rested enough, the debt or lack of sleep can never be recovered and builds over time. The lack of hours of sleep has obvious consequences throughout the day. Some of them are the tendency to fall asleep at any time, sudden changes of mood, sadness, irritability, pessimism, and increase in stress and anxiety. Sleeping less than six hours can have more serious side effects for our body.
Sleep cleans up our short term memory and leaves space in our brain for the retention of new information. It’s been demonstrated that a night without sleep reduces close to 40% of our capacity to retain knowledge. Furthermore, the person loses their capacity for concentration, becoming slower and less precise.
These nutricosmetic formulas have been designed to balance the mechanisms that favor restorative, adequate sleep.
An essential amino acid present in this nutricosmetic treatment is tryptophan, which combined with Zinc, Vitamin B1, B6 and B9, act as precursors to serotonin, melatonin, and vitamin B3. From there its enormous importance is in the maintenance of proper levels of melatonin, which is crucial to many other functions in the body. The balance between wakefulness and sleep is regulated by melatonin which helps us maintain a level of balanced and efficient activity throughout the day and a relaxed, tranquil state at night.
Therefore, indirectly, the levels of these micronutrients can affect us in many ways:
- Help our body make its own proteins.
- Influence our state of well-being reducing stress levels.
- Stimulate the production of melatonin, encouraging sleep and rest. Melatonin is, furthermore, one of the most powerful antioxidants our body can count on.
- Reduces the excess of nerves and stress that cause us to snack between meals and eat compulsively.
- Stimulate production of Vitamin B3.
- Produce a sedative and tranquilizing effect
Tryptophan is one of the amino acids that our body cannot make internally and, for that reason, it is vital to obtain it through the diet as a nutricosmetic supplement. For us to be able to properly absorb the tryptophan, it is essential we have proper levels of vitamin B6 and magnesium. Both are present in these nutricosmetic formulas to create the synergy necessary between them and to achieve this restorative state which we need. Magnesium is the determining factor in this nutricosmetic treatment as this mineral now encourages the freeing (liberation) of hormones involved with sleep and relaxation: melatonin and serotonin in coordination with tryptophan.
Other key micronutrients of the 3 nutricosmetic formulas, collagen and hyaluronic acid offer a powerful antioxidant effect that slows down the process of premature ageing, brought on by distinct (diverse) oxidative processes which have been caused by diverse factors in the body like the action of free radicals.
