Mystic Sleep's proprietary formulation contains 164 phytonutrients that exert 411 synergistic activities on your body. Many of these phytonutrients are widely recognized for their contribution to Restorative Sleep.

For example:

  • Alpha-Tocopherol - Eases restlessness during sleep (Ayres and Mihan, “Leg Cramps (Systremma) and “Restless Legs” Syndrome — Response to Vitamin E (Tocopherol)” Journal List > Calif Med > v.111 (2); 1969).

  • Ascaridole, Beta-Sitosterol, Carvone, Glycine - Exert sedative activities on the body (Okuyama, Umeyama, Saito, et al. “Ascaridole as a Pharmacologically Active Principle of Paico, a Medicinal Peruvian Plant”, Chem Pharm Bull (Tokyo), 41(7): 1309-11, 1993; Aguirre-Hernández, Rosas-Acevedo, Soto-Hernández, “Bioactivity-Guided Isolation of Beta-Sitosterol and Some Fatty Acids as Active Compounds in the Anxiolytic and Sedative Effects of Tilia Americana Var. Mexicana”, Planta Med, 73(11):1148-55, 2007; De Sousa, Farias Nóbrega, and De Almeida, “Influence of the Chirality of (R)-(−)- and (S)-(+)-Carvone in the Central Nervous System: A Comparative Study”, Chirality, 19: 264–268, doi: 10.1002/chir.20379, 2007; Almeida, de Sousa, Nóbrega, et al. “Anticonvulsant Effect of a Natural Compound α,β-Epoxy-Carvone and its Action on the Nerve Excitability”, Laboratório de Tecnologia Farmacêutica, Universidade Federal da Paraíba, Brazil, Departamento de Fisiologia, Universidade Federal de Sergipe, Brazil, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, Departamento de Psicobiologia, Brazil, 2008; Gonçalves, Oliveira, Benedito, “Antinociceptive Activity of (−)-Carvone: Evidence of Association with Decreased Peripheral Nerve Excitability”, Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Technology, Federal University of Paraíba, Department of Physiology, Federal University of Sergipe, 2008; Chase, Soja, and Morales, “Evidence that Glycine Mediates the Postsynaptic Potentials that Inhibit Lumbar Motoneurons During the Atonia of Active Sleep”, JNeurosci. (3):743-51, Department of Physiology, UCLA School of Medicine 90024, 1989).

  • Jatamansone - Slows degradation of memory and cognition due to sleep deprivation (Rahman, Muralidharan and Anand, “Inhibition of AChE and Antioxidant Activities are Probable Mechanism of Nardostacys Jatamansi DC in Sleep Deprived Alzheimer's Mice Model”, International Journal of PharmTech Research CODEN (USA): IJPRIF ISSN: 0974-4304 Vol.3, No.3, pp 1807-1816, 2011).

  • Limonene - Prolongs sleep duration (do Vale, Furtado, Santos, and Viana, “Central Effects of Citral, Myrcene and Limonene, Constituents of Esential Oil Chemotypes from Lippia alba (Mill.) n.e. Brown”, Phytomedicine; 9(8):709-14, 2002).

  • Magnesium - Relieves anxiety that might interfere with sleep (Sartori, Whittle, Hetzenauer and Singewald, “Magnesium Deficiency Induces Anxiety and HPA Axis Dysregulation: Modulation by Therapeutic Drug Treatment”, Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Institute of Pharmacy, and Centre for Molecular Biosciences Innsbruck, University of Innsbruck, Austria, 2011).

  • Quercetin - Helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle (Kambe, Kotani, Yoshimoto, “Effects of Quercetin on the Sleep-Wake Cycle in Rats: Involvement of Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid Receptor Type A in Regulation of Rapid Eye Movement Sleep”, Brain Res., 1330:83-8, 2010).

Lifestyle Recommendations

You can optimize your health and quality of sleep by:

1) Take Mystic Sleep - Years of stressful living caused damage to your body and mind. Mystic Sleep releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the molecular level to promote normal hormone levels, support brain function, alleviate mental duress, remove toxins, maintain immune system function, and reinstate healthy sleep cycle.

2) Set a Schedule - Go to bed at a set time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Disrupting this schedule may lead to insomnia. Avoid napping during the day. "Sleeping in" on weekends also makes it harder to wake up early on Monday morning because it re-sets your sleep cycles for a later awakening.

3) Exercise - Try to exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day. Daily exercise often helps people sleep, although a workout soon before bedtime may interfere with sleep. For maximum benefit, try to get your exercise about 5 to 6 hours before going to bed.

4) Avoid Caffeine, Nicotine, and Alcohol - Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, which acts as a stimulant and keeps you awake. Sources of caffeine include coffee (100-200 mg), soft drinks (50-75 mg), non-herbal teas (50-75 mg), chocolate, diet drugs, and some pain relievers. Smokers tend to sleep very lightly and often wake up in the early morning due to nicotine withdrawal. Alcohol robs people of deep sleep and REM sleep and keeps them in the lighter stages of sleep.

5) Avoid Using Sedatives - While you might fall asleep, the complete restorative sleep cycle will be not realized. You might awaken feeling unrefreshed, groggy, or hungover. Once you stop taking the sedatives, you might suffer withdrawal symptoms which will further interfere with attainment of natural sleep.

6) Drink Milk - Milk contains a substance called tryptophan. The body uses tryptophan to make serotonin, a chemical in the brain. Serotonin helps control sleep patterns, appetite, pain, and other functions. Milk does not contain enough tryptophan to change sleep patterns, but drinking a glass of milk before bed may help you relax.

7) Avoid Large Meals / Excessive Fluids - This might cause you to awaken due digestion problems or urination.

8) Relax before Bed - A warm bath, reading, or another relaxing routine (deep breathing, yoga, meditation) can make it easier to fall sleep. You can train yourself to associate certain restful activities with sleep and make them part of your bedtime ritual.

9) Don't Lie in Bed Awake - If you can't get to sleep, don't just lie in bed. Do something else, like reading, watching television, or listening to music, until you feel tired. The anxiety of being unable to fall asleep can actually contribute to insomnia. Don't expose yourself to content that is prone to increase anxiety - like the news.

10) Create a Sanctuary - Make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet. Use eye shades or earplugs if needed. Maintain a comfortable temperature in the bedroom. Extreme temperatures may disrupt sleep or prevent you from falling asleep.

11) Minimize Snoring - Sleep on your side to minimize snoring and breathing problems.

12) Sleep until Sunlight - If possible, wake up with the sun, or use very bright lights in the morning. Sunlight helps the body's internal biological clock reset itself each day. Sleep experts recommend exposure to an hour of morning sunlight for people having problems falling asleep.
