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.
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.

If there is anything society has come to realize over the last century, it is that women are just as powerful, smart, ambitious, and capable as men. And while society as a whole is still catching up as far as true equality, the facts are evident when you look at some of the most incredible and influential people today.
When it comes to fitness, however, men and women are not the same. The natural, physiological differences necessitate unique approaches to achieve optimal results. While the fundamental science behind attaining a shredded, lean physique is basically the same for both sexes, the exact steps and application require careful consideration.
One thing I've learned is that injuries can be great teachers. There are so many lessons to be learned from the injuries we experience. They force us to slow down and evaluate our bodies on a deeper level. Like many, I'm guilty of sometimes taking my healthy days for granted. When we pick up an injury, we're suddenly motivated to learn everything we can about that specific injury. We're also dedicated to the necessary rehab it will take to overcome the injury and strengthen our weak areas.
As with many injuries, I've learned there are no "quick fixes" for my stubborn Achilles. Over the years, I've also learned there are no "get fit quickly" schemes.
