For many individuals, the hectic pace of a Western lifestyle, lack of exercise and poor eating habits can lead to sub-optimal health. Often, these same individuals do not receive enough sleep at night. The vast majority of health care providers now recommend that individuals receive at least 7-8 hours of sleep. This lack of sleep has been shown in studies to be a major cause of elevation of stress (cortisol) and appetite (ghrelin) hormones, which is thought to lead to a further progression of poor sleep and eating habits. These poor habits may be part of the factors that determine weight gain, cardiovascular fitness, mental alertness, immune health and other important indicators of optimal health and wellbeing. Seditol® Plus is designed to support healthy sleep patterns and help normalize stress hormones, thus leading to better sleep and relaxation patterns.
