Juggling life as a mom, wife, professional, friend, and daughter can make life hectic. The tug of the roles can make it difficult to shut your brain off when you need to. With something on your mind at all times, getting to sleep and staying asleep is a task of its own. If you are like many of the women who work on the Checkable Medical team, you average around 5-6 hours of sleep a night, leaving you feeling exhausted every day, all day.
According to the CDC, most adults need at least 7 hours of sleep each night.1 However, more than 1 in 3 American adults say they don’t get the recommended amount of sleep.2 A couple of nights with little sleep is OK, but not getting enough sleep consistently can lead to serious health problems. Adults who sleep less than 7 hours each night are more likely to say they have had health problems, including heart attack, asthma, and depression.3 Which comes as no surprise as there is an increased risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke with prolonged lack of sleep. Sleep not only feels good and helps you stay active throughout the day, but it also provides time for your body to work on important tasks at hand. While you sleep, toxic compounds are removed, and tissues are repaired so that our bodies can function as healthily as possible. Brain pathways are formed and maintained to recall past experiences, create new memories, stay focused, and quickly respond to our ever-changing environment during the day.
Quality sleep is essential to well-being, which is why our team sought out a sleep-enhancing supplement that combines ingredients to help support both the body and mind’s ability to relax so that you can wake up ready to face whatever the world throws your way and be the best version of yourself.
As you may have experienced, over-the-counter sleep aids have gotten a bad rap. Many do not work at all, and others leave you feeling drowsy in the morning, making it difficult to be motivated to wake up early and tackle the day. We were well aware of those issues, so in our search, we were happy to find that melatonin gummies left us energized and ready to jump out of bed in the morning. The natural, tasty, and effective melatonin gummies have done wonders for our sleep (and we know they will work for you, too).
“I take 2-3 gummies about 30 minutes before I want to fall asleep so they can slowly make me feel tired and gently put me to sleep. Most evenings, I'm able to stay asleep, and if I have to use the restroom or wake up to let the dogs out, I don't feel out of it or dizzy. I wake up and I am surprised I actually slept! I'm so happy with these that they are now part of my nightly routine.”
