Product Spotlight: Optimum Sleep Assist

Proper sleep is vital to your overall health. Sleep allows the body to rest and repair itself, priming our systems for the day ahead. In fact, many health professionals claim that sleep is just as important as exercise and diet in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. However, it is troubling that many Americans report sleep problems and sleep deprivation. A recent study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)  found that 1 in 3 adults in the United States fail to get the recommended amount of sleep on a regular basis.

According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, adults aged 18-60 years should sleep at least seven hours each night to help support good health. Not achieving this level of proper sleep on a regular basis has been associated with an increased risk of developing chronic conditions like obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

However, obtaining that amount of sleep every night can be easier said than done, no matter how hard you try. Enter BodyHealth Optimum Sleep Assist, a powerful, anti-catabolic sleep aid and support formula. This product is designed to promote deep and restorative sleep for individuals who have trouble falling to sleep on a regular basis, or just every one in a while.

During sleep, the body releases anabolic hormones to regenerate and repair muscle tissue and help your hard work in the gym pay off. With overtraining, inadequate nutrition or insufficient sleep, the human body can enter a catabolic state and target your hard-earned muscle. This is a natural process where the body catabolizes, or breaks down, muscle tissue to access the amino acids in the muscle protein. As an anti-catabolic aid, Optimum Sleep Assist optimizes muscle recovery and anabolic hormone production throughout the night.

INGREDIENTS IN BODYHEALTH OPTIMUM SLEEP ASSIST

Velvet Antler: This is one of nature’s richest sources of IGF-I (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1). This hormone is a master anabolic activator hormone responsible for growth and healthy metabolism.

Bovine Colostrum: This is a powerful and natural supplement in supporting growth and immune building. Growth factors and IGF-I can be diminished without proper sleep, and so this ingredient helps replenish your body. Studies show bovine colostrum can improve athletic performance by 5% or more.

Mucuna: This is a unique bean-like substance that happens to be one of the richest natural sources of L-dopa, a precursor to dopamine. Dopamine helps regulate many of your bodily functions, including sleep, motivation, mood, stress, motor skills and more. Studies have linked Mucuna pruriens to a range of benefits.

Melatonin: This is an important hormone for the body, regulating sleep cycles and inducing deep rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep patterns. Melatonin also works as a powerful antioxidant and increases the metabolic rate during sleep for healthy weight support.

B-6: Vitamin B-6 is a major coenzyme that supports many bodily functions and reactions. This vitamin increases your body’s production of serotonin, which induces sleep, heightens mood and improves mental cognition.

Optimum Sleep Assist is a non-habit forming, all-natural formula that can help you achieve a better night of sleep. Another option to address sleepless nights is Healthy Sleep Ultra, an all-natural sleep aid to regulate the sleep/wake cycle and promote restorative sleep.

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego.

He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine.

In 1992, Dr Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein.

The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness.

Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 44 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.

The fundamental premise of a probiotic supplement is that the live, beneficial bacteria make it to your large intestine to colonize and become integrated into the gut microbiota. The trouble is that this critical ecosystem resides primarily in your large intestine – the last stop on the digestive tract.
