We designed Sleepy to be a night time solution for banishing occasional sleepless nights for good. Sleepy is an all natural, vegan gummy free of herbal sedatives like valerian that may cause morning drowsiness.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a vital system within our bodies, just like our Nervous or Endocrine Systems. The ECS has many functions, but one of it's main jobs is to regulate our Circadian Rhythm that governs our sleep/wake cycle every day. CBD from full spectrum hemp extract nourishes our ECS so it can do it's job, allowing us to fall asleep when we're supposed to and experience quality rest.
Sleepy Gummies contain a low dose of Melatonin to gently nudge us to sleep. A main concern with Melatonin is the morning "hangover" making someone feel groggy or sluggish. However, these side effects are usually experienced because too much Melatonin is taken (above 4-5mg, depending on someone's sensitivity). High dose Melatonin stays in our systems all night and into the morning, which is when Melatonin should be at it's lowest - hence the grogginess. Low dose Melatonin taken 30-60 minutes before bed is still effective to help us fall asleep, but clears out of our systems throughout the night, so we wake up feeling refreshed.
Also included in Sleepy is are the amino acids GABA and 5-HTP that work synergistically to support sleep-enhancing neurotransmitter production, which helps put the brakes on the brain and quiet a racing mind that can keep you up all night. L-Theanine is included to calm down from the effects of caffeine and support alpha brain waves during REM sleep, which is associated with better sleep quality. Female-specific Evening Primrose Oil which protects against hormonal swings that can interrupt sleep cycles.
