The Importance of Sleep

Lack of sleep can lead to a number of health problems, including: depression, increased pain, decreased immune function, fatigue and impaired memory. Chronic insomnia is even linked to heart disease and diabetes. The causes of lack of sleep are wide and varied, and include emotional hardships, nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle. Physical pain, hypoglycemia and digestive issues can also play a role. These factors are just the tip of the iceberg. Read on to see how the Herbalists at Urban Moonshine can help you achieve a full and healthy night’s rest.

The herbs formulated in Urban Moonshine’s Hit the Hay work with both the mind and the body, setting the stage for a restful night’s sleep. Hit the Hay formula was built around Passionflower, allowing the mind to “gently relax without knocking you out”. California Poppy helps to calm the mind while Kava Root supports a relaxed nervous system. They topped it off with Hops to support feeling restful, quickly.

Hit the Hay is a bedside companion that benefits greatly with a healthy nighttime routine. This can include drinking tea, taking a bath, and avoiding screen time before bed. Herbalists at Urban Moonshine also encourage eating good food, taking adaptogenic herbs, avoiding excess caffeine, moving your body, drinking plenty of water and taking deep breaths throughout the day.
