The importance of better sleep

Three pillars of fitness are train hard, eat right, and sleep. The sleep aspect of fitness training is often overlooked, but it is extremely important:

  • Sleep is vital to recovery and muscle repair
  • Human Growth Hormone is needed for muscle growth, and two-thirds of daily natural HGH secretion in the body occurs during slow-wave, deep sleep
  • Poor sleep also impairs focus, and maintaining focus is crucial to competitive success

For maximum recovery and growth, quality of sleep is as important to physical fitness as the duration. With poor sleep, you will find yourself hitting plateaus in your performance gains, spending more time feeling weakened and sore after exercise, and even experiencing lapses in concentration.

Recent studies suggest that tart cherry juice inhibits the enzyme that degrades tryptophan, the amino acid that has been found in humans to increase sleep duration, decrease time to fall asleep, and decrease awakenings during the night.1 Food for Sleep contains an equivalent amount of tart cherry juice that was studied in these clinical trials, and the whey protein in Food for Sleep was designed to enhance uptake of bioavailable tryptophan across the blood-brain barrier. Scientific evidence suggests that together, tryptophan and Montmorency tart cherry juice support the body’s natural sleep cycles.

Tryptophan can increase sleep duration, decrease time to fall asleep, and decrease awakenings during the night

The main ingredients work together to support the body’s natural sleep cycles
