How does Mystic Sleep Work?

Mystic Sleep's ingredients promote sleep in three major ways:

  • Promote Natural Relaxation
  • Reinforce Normal Sleep-Wake Cycle
  • Support Healthy Breathing

That sounds great, but what does it mean?

Mystic Sleep and Natural Relaxation

Sleep is just as important for long-term health as diet and exercise. If you feel drowsy during the day, even during boring activities, then you are not getting enough sleep. The amount of sleep you need depends on many factors including age.  Most adults need 7 to 8 hours a night for the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day.

People tend to sleep more lightly and for shorter time spans as they get older, although they generally need about the same amount of sleep as they needed in early adulthood. About half of all people over 65 have frequent sleeping problems, such as insomnia, and deep sleep stages in many elderly people often become very short or stop completely. 

Natural relaxants are needed to help promote sleep as you age.

Mystic Sleep and your Sleep-Wake Cycle

Your Sleep-Wake Cycle consists of roughly 8 hours of nocturnal sleep and 16 hours of daytime wakefulness.  It is controlled by a combination of sleep homeostasis drive and circadian rhythms.  From the time you awaken, the homeostatic drive for sleep accumulates until you fall asleep in the evening.  This is done through a sleep-inducing chemical called adenosine.  It accumulates while you are awake resulting in a growing need for sleep that becomes more and more difficult to resist. Conversely levels of adenosine decrease during sleep, thereby reducing the need for sleep.

Circadian rhythms refer to cyclical changes driven by your brain’s biological clock that occur over a 24-hour period.  Examples of these change involve body temperature, hormone levels, and sleepiness.

Homeostasis drive and circadian rhythms can be disrupted by hormonal imbalances from stimulants like coffee and irregular sleep schedule.

Mystic Sleep delivers extracts from 4 botanicals that are used in Ayurveda to maintain healthy hormonal balance and nervous system function: Ashwagandha, Dwarf Morning Glory, Jatamansi, and Shatavari.

Mystic Sleep and Healthy Breathing

During sleep, you usually pass through five phases of sleep: stages 1, 2, 3, 4, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. These stages progress in a cycle from stage 1 to REM sleep, then the cycle starts over again with stage 1. You spend almost 50 percent of your total sleep time in stage 2 sleep, about 20 percent in REM sleep, and the remaining 30 percent in the other stages.

Proper breathing is essential for the deeper phases of sleep.  Anytime breathing is interrupted by a partial or complete blockage of your airways, your sleep physiology is interrupted and you will be taken back to stage 1 or 2 sleep.  Not spending enough time in stage 4 and REM means your body will not sufficiently repair and regenerate and you will awaken in the morning feeling tired.

Mystic Sleep delivers extracts from 2 botanicals that are used in Ayurveda to support healthy breathing:  Cardamom and Long Pepper.
