Sleep - it’s something we all know we need but often find so difficult to do! It’s well documented that good health and good sleep go hand in hand. There’s nothing like waking up feeling refreshed after a peaceful night’s sleep. Plus, it can lower our risk of a host of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and depression. But if you suffer from a chronic health problem such as thyroid imbalance, chronic fatigue syndrome, stress or anxiety, you’ll know all too well the knock on effect on the quality of your rest - these conditions often lead to sleep problems. Throw a global pandemic into the mix, and a majority of us report feeling tired all the time. It’s more crucial than ever to find ways to sleep better and get the rest you need to function well, whether you suffer from a chronic health condition or not.
There is an increasing amount of evidence linking nutrition to sleep quality. And luckily, there’s lots we can do to help us nod off at night by introducing the right foods and supplements into our diets. Sublyme Thyro contains three powerful ingredients for sleep, and in this article we’ll take a look at how they can help you get the rest you crave, whilst supporting your health.
Ashwagandha is a common herbal medicine used in traditional Ayurveda health practices to treat a variety of conditions including stress, anxiety, cognitive impairment and diabetes. Research shows ashwagandha may help people fall asleep faster, spend more time asleep, and experience better sleep quality. After taking ashwagandha for six weeks, participants in one study described their sleep as being 72% better, on average.
Selenium plays a major role in important processes in your body, including your metabolism and thyroid function. A selenium deficiency is associated with a variety of thyroid issues, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Symptoms of these chronic conditions include sleep problems like insomnia and sleep apnea, so it is a good idea to boost your selenium levels, both to benefit your thyroid and improve your sleep quality. What's more, selenium may help boost your immune system, slow age-related mental decline, and even reduce your risk of heart disease.
Kelp is a type of seaweed already a staple in many Asian cuisines. Seaweed, such as kelp, is one of the best natural food sources of iodine, an essential component in thyroid hormone production. As we’ve already seen, thyroid health is linked with sleep quality, and in addition to supporting your thyroid function, including kelp in your diet can also help you get a good night’s sleep. There’s a reason why kelp is a time-honoured favourite in spa treatments. Its high magnesium content means it’s able to rehydrate the skin with natural oils, alleviate muscular pain and eliminate toxins, and promote a good night’s sleep. If that’s not persuasive enough, the University of Oxford assessed that higher blood levels of Omega-3 DHA (the fatty acid found in seaweeds and seafood) were linked to better sleep.
Sublyme Thyro contains all the sleep promoting ingredients we’ve discussed: a professional blend of Kelp from Ascophyllum nodosum, Ashwagandha from Withania somnifera, and essential mineral Selenium. This uniquely blended food supplement supports cognitive function, metabolic health and energy. It’s designed to support the nutritional needs of those suffering from chronic illnesses, such as Lyme disease and chronic fatigue. But it’s also a useful daily food supplement for those looking to support their general health and wellbeing, and thyroid health.
