There's nothing like a good night’s sleep. It's restful, restorative, and refreshing – but it's not always easy to get the seven or eight hours your body requires. Getting adequate sleep has myriad health benefits, from reduced stress to clearer thinking to a better mood, making it one of the most important wellness rituals that's also a totally natural part of your body’s rhythms.
Sleep is also a major component of immune health. Studies have shown that people who don't get enough sleep may be more likely to catch a cold. When you’re sleeping, your body releases cytokines, which can help promote sleep and can increase when you're feeling stressed. If you aren't sleeping enough, production of cytokines can slow down, as can production of antibodies and white blood cells.
However, sometimes sleep feels far away, and nothing is more frustrating than when you can't drift off easily. Your sleep can also be impacted by anything from stress to your environment to distractions like kids, pets, and devices. Because we know how essential sleep is to overall wellness, we looked to our popular Nature's Way Sambucus® Gummies and added melatonin to occasionally help you sleep.*
Your nighttime essential: Sleep + Immune Gummies*
Sambucus Sleep + Immune Gummies are made with the same immune-supporting blend of vitamin C, zinc, and black elderberry extract to help you maintain your immune health every day, but they also contain 3mg of melatonin per serving to help with occasional sleeplessness.* We then added L-theanine and an herbal blend of lemon balm and passionflower extract.
How should you incorporate Sleep + Immune Gummies into your nighttime routine?* Take two gummies 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime and then focus on creating the ideal sleep environment. Put your devices down, turn off the TV, and opt to read or journal before bed to relax and unwind. Your bedroom should be cool and dark for optimal sleep. Consider using a sound machine or essential oil diffuser to set the mood and help you clear your mind. By creating a regular bedtime routine, it will signal to your body that it's time for sleep.
Sleep + Immune Gummies are formulated with wholesome ingredients, so you can feel good about making them a part of your wellness journey.* They're gluten-free and made with pectin, not gelatin. Gummies contain no yeast-derived ingredients, wheat, soy, dairy, eggs, peanuts, or artificial colors.
Getting enough sleep is a cornerstone of your well-being, especially when immune health is top of mind.* With some simple tweaks to your PM routine and a little help from Sleep + Immune Gummies from time to time, you'll be waking up on the right side of the bed and feeling your best each day.*
