Getting your zzz’s is an important part of every day – or every night – health and wellness. For some, sleep comes easily and we are in dreamland in no time. But many people do not get the 7-9 hours of sleep recommended for most adults. Whether you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night, Graviola Leaf Powder, also known as Soursop, is a phenomenal sleep aid.
Although some people can fall asleep at any time, any where, for most of us, sleep requires relaxation and usually a somewhat quiet, somewhat dark, comfortable spot. For quietness, darkness and a snuggly sleep zone, you’re on your own. But for relaxation, Graviola Leaf Powder is here to help.
Relaxation means different things to different people. Generally we feel relaxed when our mind is able to slow from the rush of daily thoughts and our body is calm. This is when we are most receptive to sleep. Graviola Leaf Powder has a mild sedative affect that can prepare the body for rest without causing loss of lucidity or grogginess as in many chemical sleep aids.
Graviola can also stimulate the brain’s reception of serotonin, a chemical released by the body that acts as a neurotransmitter. Serotonin levels can be a mood indicator and lack of it is linked to depression. When serotonin is high, it can elevate your mood and act as an antidepressant and anti-anxiety solution. By naturally making the body more amenable to serotonin, Graviola triggers this calming effect. As they say, Soursop to cure sour moods!
Sleep and high blood pressure are interrelated. Graviola Leaf Powder or Graviola tea can be hypotensive, which means a natural way to reduce high blood pressure. When blood pressure is elevated, the body is working harder and is more alert, two disadvantages when you’re trying to get some sleep. Graviola assists your cardiovascular system in settling to allow for a long restorative period. On the flip side, when you do not get enough sleep, you may activate stress-reactions including cortisol and adrenaline. Prolonged exposure at night can create chronic high blood pressure, not to mention more difficulty getting to sleep. It’s a vicious cycle.
Additionally, Graviola leaves can be antispasmodic. This means that they can medicinally calm your digestive system by relaxing the muscles in your gut. While you may not realize your digestive track is working overtime, it may be part of what is keeping you up at night, especially if you have eaten a big or particularly spicy meal before bedtime. Graviola is also a natural pain-reliever that can reduce swelling. It can be helpful in reducing soreness or pain that becomes more noticeable as you are still and try to wind down your day.
Next time you’re having trouble getting to sleep, try a regimen of Graviola Leaf Powder. We find it to be pretty dreamy…and dream-inducing too.
