Description

The consequences of sleep deprivation go far beyond fatigue and diminished performance. Decades of clinical research document that a good night’s rest supports nearly all systems of the body, including: skin health and youthful appearance,94-97 healthy collagen formation,98-101 insulin levels already within normal range,102-104 healthy body weight,105,106 glucose levels already within normal range,107,108 blood pressure already within normal range,109,110 healthy cell division,111-113 cardiovascular health,114-117 and a good mood.118-120

Scientists attribute sleep-related difficulties to the unprecedented levels of stress most of us endure in today’s fast-paced world. And to add insult to injury, sleep quality and duration decline as we grow older – at a time when we need the health benefits of a good night’s rest more than ever.

Enhanced Natural Sleep® with Melatonin helps promote optimal sleep and youthful appearance. It contains these three clinically validated, natural compounds shown to support healthy, restful sleep, promote healthy response to stress, and target sleep debt-related factors associated with skin aging:

  1. Bioactive Milk Peptides (Lactium®) are a cutting-edge nutrient complex consisting of patented bioactive peptides found naturally in milk. Used widely in Europe to promote sustained and restful sleep patterns, published studies reveal that these bioactive milk peptides also promote relaxation, help with stress, and support daytime cognition.121-123 A group of 63 women reporting a variety of sleep-related difficulties experienced as much as 65.6% improvement in their symptoms with just 150 mg per day of these bioactive milk peptides.124 In another study, the same 150 mg dose induced substantial improvements across 27 markers of sleep quality and stress response in 165 healthy adults.125 And in a third study, a group of healthy men and women taking 150 mg per day of these bioactive milk peptides for one month experienced a 50% improvement in sleep quality after two weeks and needed 30% less time to fall asleep after 4 weeks.125
  2. Melatonin (very low dose & optional). A compound produced in the brain to regulate the sleep-wake cycle, melatonin levels naturally decline with age and adversely affect sleep patterns in many people. In both immediate and time-release form, melatonin has been shown to support sustained and restful sleep. So much so that time-release melatonin has been licensed since June 2007 in Europe and other countries for promoting optimal sleep.126
  3. Sendara is a proprietary nutrient complex consisting of ashwagandha and Indian gooseberry extracts. Prized in traditional cultures for their ability to promote healthy skin function and appearance, these plant-based compounds have since gained substantial clinical validation. Indian gooseberry provides broad-spectrum antioxidant support and has been used to preserve youthful skin health and appearance in many skin care products.127-130 Ashwagandha also promotes a healthy response to stress, yielding 62% relaxation support compared to placebo with just 125 mg per day in one clinical study.131
