Good Morning Everyone! How did you sleep? I ask that question because I used to have trouble sleeping, but I am sleeping better than I have in a while, thanks to Vick’s ZzzQuil Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies, which contain a blend of lavender, chamomile, valerian root, and lemon balm. I have to admit that I go through phases of good and bad sleep patterns. I had been in a bad sleep pattern for a while. I always heard the older you get, the less you sleep, but quite frankly that isn’t going to work for me. I need and want my sleep! If I could, I would nap every day (just not in the cards for me right now).
I’m going to admit something; I used to feel like I needed to take a sleeping medication. I could not go to sleep without taking something. A girl has to sleep!!! Anyway, I don’t feel that way anymore after I recently discovered ZzzQuil Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies. These melatonin gummies are made with botanicals like lavender, chamomile, valerian root, and lemon balm to help you fall asleep naturally. *Plus, one to two gummies contain an optimal level of melatonin so you won’t feel groggy the next day,* and they are non-habit-forming. I like any form of a gummy and let me tell you, these taste amazing! Just remember- you only need one or two before bed, not the whole jar (because they taste that good)! These can be taken as often as needed, as long as you have at least six hours to sleep. I know friends that take them on long flights as well! I prefer to take something that contains a blend of botanicals like these.
What is melatonin you might ask (although it’s such a buzzword of late)? According to the National Sleep Foundation, “Melatonin is a natural hormone made by your body’s pineal (pih-knee-uhl) gland. This is a pea-sized gland located just above the middle of the brain. During the day the pineal is inactive. When the sun goes down, and darkness occurs, the pineal is “turned on” by the SCN and begins to actively produce melatonin, which is released into the blood. Usually, this occurs around 9 pm. As a result, melatonin levels in the blood rise sharply, and you begin to feel less alert. Sleep becomes more inviting. Melatonin levels in the blood stay elevated for about 12 hours-all through the night-before the light of a new day when they fall back to low daytime levels by about 9 am. Daytime levels of melatonin are barely detectable.”
The other new addition to my improved bedtime routine is the Vicks® PURE Zzzs™ Soothing Aromatherapy Balm! It contains relaxing lavender and chamomile scents and is made with a moisturizing formula of aloe leaf extract and coconut oil to leave your skin soft as well.
I’m not going to promise you will sleep as well as a baby because we are all different, but I know after using the gummies that I am personally sleeping better than I have in a while. Take some deep breaths, maybe download a meditation app like Insight Timer or Headspace, use a White Noise machine along with the Vicks PURE Zzzs Soothing Aromatherapy Balm to wind down for the evening then take ZzzQuil PURE Zzzs Melatonin Gummies. Nighty Night!
