Calm down, sleep better and more deeply with Peak Rest.
The world’s sleepiest chocolate. Unhealthy, high-sugar treats will wake you up in the evening rather than help you wind-down. Peak Rest is a 99% sugar-free dark chocolate infused with natural, night-time supplements. Feel good with a healthy, great tasting treat and then sleep well, you've earned it.
Peak rest is best enjoyed about an hour before bed with a caffeine-free hot drink, during you're winding down routine for the evening.
Supplements in Peak Rest include:
Magnesium:A lack of magnesium can cause frequent awakenings, so it is no surprise that research shows that magnesium supplements in the evening can improve sleep quality.
Chamomile tea is probably the longest and most widely used natural remedy to decrease anxiety and help induce sleep. A US study has shown that participants receiving chamomile extract every day for a month fell asleep 15 minutes faster and woke up fewer times during the night than those receiving a placebo.
Zinc is a must-have addition because it is required to metabolise melatonin, the key hormone for healthy sleep. A 2011 study showed that the combination of zinc and magnesium had a far more positive effect on sleep quality, than taking melatonin.
L-Tryptophan improves your sleep in a very simple way. L-tryptophan can help you produce more of the sleepy hormone melatonin. One study took seven patients with insomnia, and after giving them 5 to 10 consecutive nights of L-tryptophan, they increased their total sleep and improved their sleep quality, when compared with a placebo controlled group.
