The only solution for a lack of sleep? More sleep.

Don't worry we can help with that.

Sleep is essential for cognitive function, emotional well-being, and overall health. It's the time when our body repairs, detoxifies, and rejuvenates.

There is no substitute for sleep but we can help you improve your sleep quality.

Health hacking for better sleep. Lifestyle habits, diet and exercise all help to improve sleep.

There are also a number of key minerals and amino acids that can improve sleep quality in a non-addictive and restorative way if you are really struggling.

Restoration of ATP (energy) levels

During wakefulness, broken down ATP, the energy molecule, accumulates as adenosine. Adenosine makes us sleepy. During sleep, there is reduced demand for ATP allowing this process to be reversed.

Clearance of waste products (glymphatics)

The glymphatic system, a brain waste-clearance pathway, is more active during sleep, facilitating the efficient removal of harmful waste. This highlights sleep's essential role in maintaining brain health and its potential implications for neurodegenerative diseases.

Protein synthesis

Sleep promotes the synthesis of proteins, including those involved in cellular energy production and the repair of cellular machinery. This helps maintain the efficiency of energy-producing pathways.

Hormonal regulation

Sleep influences the secretion of various hormones that play a role in metabolism and energy balance. For instance, growth hormone, released predominantly during deep sleep, plays a role in cell growth, repair, and metabolism.

  • Lifestyle

    Prioritising sleep hygiene practices such as maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, creating a dark and cool sleeping environment, and reducing screen time before bed can significantly improve sleep quality.

  • Diet

    Consuming foods rich in tryptophan, magnesium, and calcium can promote the production of sleep-inducing neurotransmitters. Avoiding large meals, caffeine, and alcohol close to bedtime can also aid in better sleep.

  • Exercise

    Regular exercise can significantly improve the quality and duration of sleep. However, the timing of exercise plays a crucial role in its impact on sleep.

  1. Magnesium can support deep, restorative sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep. A magnesium deficiency can lead to insomnia or restless sleep.
    It's best taken 1-2 hours before bed.
  2. Glycine is an amino acid with several roles in the body, including the production of proteins, DNA, and collagen production. It also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain.
    Glycine can improve sleep quality by lowering body temperature and promoting relaxation. Studies have shown that glycine supplementation can help individuals fall asleep more quickly and experience deeper, more restorative sleep.
  3. Magnesium bisglycinate, also known as magnesium glycinate, is a chelated form of magnesium bound to two molecules of the amino acid glycine. This form is known for its high bioavailability and gentle effect on the stomach.
  4. Benefits for Sleep and Brain Health: The combination of magnesium and glycine offers dual benefits. While magnesium supports sleep through its role in neurotransmitter function, glycine further promotes relaxation. Additionally, magnesium glycinate is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier, making it particularly effective for brain health and potentially enhancing its sleep-promoting effects.
  5. L-Theanine can improve sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing stress. It does this by increasing levels of certain neurotransmitters (like GABA) that promote relaxation.
