I Dream of Dream Water



It was my lucky day when I ran across Dream Water at a spa conference.  Being a huge fan of all things natural I have always resisted taking sleeping pills when having trouble sleeping.  Dream Water fits the bill.   It is a natural healthy way to fall asleep without that groggy zombie feeling after waking it up.

This product is made up of 3 main ingredients that really makes this product work: GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) it can help you relax and reduce anxiety by blocking the transmission of impulses from one cell to another in the central nervous system, it controls the level of glutamate secreted in the brain, which is the chemical that generates brain activity. Melatonin it can help govern the body’s internal clock that regulates your natural cycle of sleeping and waking. Finally the last key ingredient is  5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) it can help promote sleep and relaxation and improve the quality of sleep by stimulating the production of melatonin.

Getting a good night’s sleep is vital to you overall health as explained by WebMD here.

Benefits of getting more sleep (simple and short):

  1. Better health- One study simulated the effects of the disturbed sleep patterns of shift workers on 10 young healthy adults. After a mere four days, three of them had blood glucose levels that qualified as pre-diabetic.
  2. Better sex life (sorry mom)- According to a poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, up to 26% of people say that their sex lives tend to suffer because they’re just too tired.
  3. Less pain-If you have chronic pain — or acute pain from a recent injury — getting enough sleep may actually make you hurt less. Did you know that sleep can actually sleep can actually supplement medication for pain?
  4. Lower risk of injury-Sleeping enough might actually keep you safer. Sleep deprivation has been linked with many notorious disasters, like the destruction of the space shuttle Challenger and the grounding of the Exxon Valdez. The Institute of Medicine estimates that one out of five auto accidents in the U.S. results from drowsy driving — that’s about 1 million crashes a year.
  5. Better mood- Getting enough sleep won’t guarantee chipperness, but you have probably noticed that when you’re exhausted, you’re more likely to be cranky. That’s not all. “Not getting enough sleep affects your emotional regulation,” says Mindell. “When you’re overtired, you’re more likely to snap at your boss, or burst into tears, or start laughing uncontrollably.” (Hello PMS)
  6. Better weight control- time to get out those old ‘what if’ clothes in the back of your closet-  The hormone leptin plays a key role in making you feel full. When you don’t get enough sleep, leptin levels drop. Result: people who are tired are just plain hungrier — and they seem to crave high-fat and high-calorie foods specifically.
  7. Clearer thinking- “Sleep loss affects how you think,” Mindell tells WebMD. “It impairs your cognition, your attention, and your decision-making.” Studies have found that people who are sleep-deprived are substantially worse at solving logic or math problems than when they’re well-rested. “They’re also more likely to make odd mistakes, like leaving their keys in the fridge by accident,” she tells WebMD.
  8. Better memory-  Feeling forgetful? Sleep loss could be to blame. Studies have shown that while we sleep, our brains process and consolidate our memories from the day. If you don’t get enough sleep, it seems like those memories might not get stored correctly and can be lost.
  9. Stronger Immunity- Could getting enough sleep prevent the common cold? One preliminary study put the idea to the test. Researchers tracked over 150 people and monitored their sleep habits for two weeks. Then they exposed them to a cold virus.People who got seven hours of sleep a night or less were almost three times as likely to get sick as the people who got at least eight hours of sleep a night. More research is needed to establish a real link; this study was small and other factors may have influenced the results. Still, you can’t go wrong getting eight hours of sleep when possible.
