Do you remember how you slept as a kid? Not “how” as in which position (on your back, your side, if you had the top bunk or not) – but the quality of sleep you got each and every night. Chances are you slept like a rock – (or a rock-picker, as my nephew says. Sorry, it’s a farm thing). It was a sound sleep, with no interruptions. If you did awake in the middle of the night, it was due to something like a tummy-ache, or a bad dream – not the hundreds of worries that run through your brain these days.
What if you could get that kind of child-like sleep back? Wouldn’t that be the cat’s pajamas?
Well, maybe you can.
There are a number of sleep aids out there – both over-the-counter and prescription - that promise to deliver just that kind of sleep. But are they safe? And what are the potential side effects – or long-term effects, such as addiction?
We’ve reviewed a number of sleep-aid products, and have found one that has all of the following three qualities:
• It’s safe
• It’s effective
• It’s all-natural – with no side effects
The all-natural ingredients in REMTyme, made by the well-known and much-respected manufacturer, Swiss Labs, Inc., works to help you snooze through all five stages of your sleep cycle and boosts the amount of health-restoring “deep sleep” you get each night.
Before we go any further, let’s take a look at the five stages of sleep, so you can understand just how important the sleep is that you’re missing out on.
The Five Stages of Sleep
Non-REM Sleep (Ideally 80% of your total sleep)
• Stage 1 – 5% of your sleep. You’re in a light sleep between awake and entering sleep.
• Stage 2 – 50% of your sleep. You become disengaged with the waking world and sleep begins. Your breathing and heart rate are regular.
• Stages 3 and 4 – 25% of your sleep. You are in a deep restorative and healing sleep. Your blood pressure drops. Your breathing slows. Your energy is recharged and your immune system creates and repairs cells.
REM Sleep (Ideally 20% of your total sleep)
• Stage 5. Your most active sleep. You dream and your eyes move rapidly. Your body is relaxed. Your muscles shut down. Your brain and body are energized. Your memories are stored.
So how does REMTyme work to help you get the most out of your five stages? Well, its combination of ingredients acts like a “recipe for sleep” when working together. I like to call those ingredients the Fabulous Four:
• The herb combo of chamomile, passionflower, lemon balm and hops
The first ingredient is an amino acid that Japanese scientists found when researching the benefits of green tea. You may have heard about green tea and its many health rewards, including its soothing, mind-boosting effects. But green tea also contains caffeine – 30mg of caffeine to be exact, the same amount as in a cup of cappuccino or can of cola. The Japanese researchers were at a loss – what could be in the green tea to offset the jittery effects of caffeine?
And that’s when they discovered the amino acid called L-Theanine, the “secret ingredient” that is hidden in the leaves of green tea and that causes you to relax. Subsequent studies proved that this natural nutrient helps you fall asleep faster and quiets your active, busy mind so you stay asleep and reap the effects of deep, restful slumber.
L-Theanine: How does it work?
Healthy Sleep Trigger #1
The amino acid L-Theanine triggers calming alpha brain waves that put your mind in a tranquil, relaxed state so it’s easier to clear your head and fall asleep quickly. One study showed that L-Theanine generated those alpha waves in as little as 30 minutes. Sounds better than tossing and turning for hours – doesn’t it?
Healthy Sleep Trigger #2
In addition to generating alpha waves, L-Theanine naturally adjusts your body’s production of neurotransmitters to just the right levels so you can slumber all night long without those fitful stops and starts. This is especially important as you age and your body produces fewer neurotransmitters as a result. These crucial neurotransmitters send signals between your body’s cells, and if your cells aren’t communicating properly, your brain remains in an active state and your sleep cycles are disrupted. That’s when L-Theanine steps in, allowing you to fall asleep when you want and stay asleep through the deepest, most restorative stages of sleep.
You’ve may have heard about the sleep benefits of melatonin, and might have even taken a sleep-aid containing this ingredient. However, most of the sleep-aids we reviewed contained either too little or too much of melatonin. Only REMTyme had the amount of melatonin that’s been shown in studies to be safe and effective.
The same way you lose neurotransmitters as you age, your levels of melatonin also decline. In fact, a recent Harvard Medical School report states that your melatonin levels “virtually disappear” as you grow older, throwing your normal sleep/wake cycle off-kilter. But REMTyme’s optimal level of melatonin essentially resets your internal sleep clock so you sleep – and sleep well – during normal sleep hours and awake recharged and refreshed.
If you are the type to be kept awake due to bodily aches and pains, this ingredient is of most importance to you. Magnesium promotes normal muscle and nerve function and acts as a mild, natural relaxant for your tense, aching muscles – literally erasing stress and strain from your body.
How does such a simple ingredient have such a powerful effect? Well, when you’re in pain, your nervous system transmits pain signals to your brain. But a healthy level of magnesium helps to reduce a pain transmitter in your nervous system known as “substance p.” This substance weakens the pain signal that’s sent to your brain, easing your pain and discomfort.
Unfortunately, you might not be getting enough magnesium in your diet, and needlessly suffering from aches and pain as a result. In fact, the American Journal of Health reports that Americans’ intake of magnesium has dropped in HALF over the past 100 years. But, by replenishing your body with the magnesium you get in REMTyme right before bedtime, your pain will be eased, your body relaxed and you’ll be on your way to deep, restorative sleep.
With the first three ingredients priming your mind and body for a great night’s sleep, the final and fourth element of the “Fabulous Four” gives you extra nutritional support to help you sleep even better. REMTyme contains four of the most well-researched, time-honored herbs to soothe your mind and body for even deeper, more restful sleep.
These herbs - chamomile, passionflower, lemon balm and hops, are all known to promote sound, quality sleep time, especially when taken together. REMTyme contains the perfect level of each of them to ensure you enjoy a deep, rejuvenating sleep.
Tested, Tried and True
You may be wondering how we know all of this information is true and accurate? Well, when Swiss Labs was looking to develop an effective, quality sleep-aid product, they enlisted the help of Dr. Glen A. Halvorson, M.D., a board-certified physician, published author, nationally-recognized speaker and ardent advocate of natural health alternatives.
Dr. Halvorson has spent years formulating a variety of all-natural nutritional and other supplements to help ease joint pain, strengthen immunity, enhance libido and potency, improve digestion, increase energy and alertness, protect against free radicals, promote heart health and more. And, of course, he has researched, tested and helped develop the powerful formula of REMTyme.
The nutrients you get in REMTyme are pharmaceutical-grade, so they’re the highest quality you can find anywhere. What’s more, there’s no skimping on potencies. With REMTyme you get the same amounts shown in studies to offer you the optimum sleep-enhancing benefits with maximum safety.
And . . . if all that doesn’t convince you, for added peace of mind each batch of REMTyme is laboratory-tested and comes with it’s own Certificate of Analysis. So you’re guaranteed the potency and purity of the nutrients you’re getting. Oh, and if you’re not fully satisfied, you’re guaranteed a full refund within the first 30 days.
Is REMTyme for you?
If you are struggling with lack of sleep, whether it’s due to mental, emotional, physical or nutritional issues – or all of these, then we recommend trying REMTyme. No other sleep formula that we reviewed offers you the unique and effective combination of:
• L-Theanine to banish stress from your mind and promote deep sleep;
• Melatonin to normalize your body’s natural sleep/wake cycle;
• Magnesium to relax your muscles and ease pain so you sleep soundly; and
• A soothing combination of herbs to relax your nerves for calm, restful sleep.
Not only that, but REMTyme is completely all-natural with no unwanted side-effects or long-term effects – other than a fantastic night’s sleep, that is! I’ll take that side effect any day!
