ZIESTA is a non-prescription supplement often considered to be the best over the counter sleep aid currently available.  It was developed just for you if you’re struggling to sleep at night due to a restless mind or a broken sleep schedule. If you’re on shift work, have jet lag, have an inconsistent bedtime or just can’t get your mind to shut off at night from a high stress day, it can be very hard on your ability to get a restful sleep. This supplement can help to relax your body and ease your mind so that you will become more restful and get the sleep you need.

How Does ZIESTA Set Your Sleeping Clock?

Your body and mind run on what is called a circadian rhythm. This tells your body when it is time to go to sleep and when it is time to wake up. Traditionally, people would get sleepy when it became dark outside, sleep through the night, and wake with the dawn.  Light plays an important role in signaling that process – more about that later.

With our busy lifestyles, travel to places with other time zones, and shift work that changes when it is possible for us to sleep, this cycle is interrupted.  This can make it very difficult to rely on our natural body signals to get sleepy, fall asleep and wake at the right times. The ZIESTA formula helps you to overcome that struggle and reset your body’s sleeping and waking clock so that your circadian rhythms will work for you.

What’s Light Got to Do with It?

Remember how we evolved sleeping at night in the dark and waking in the morning with the dawn? This is because we have receptors in our eyes that detect light and darkness and these trigger effects in our brains that tell us whether to be awake or asleep.  An important part of that process is the release of melatonin.  The body’s clock, supported by light exposure, dictates when a hormone called melatonin should be released.  This is triggered by exposure to darkness and is further boosted by a regular sleep routine so that your body knows when it’s time to wind down and when it’s time to get up.

That said, as we keep the lights on later and sit in front of screens like TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones, we keep the light exposure going on our eyes. In essence, our eyes don’t realize it’s nighttime.  Many people who struggle with sleep have low melatonin levels, which has led to the theory that we’re just not using the lifestyle habits we need to ensure melatonin is released at the right time. With all our light exposure and inconsistent bedtime and waking times, we’re damaging our circadian rhythms and hurting our ability to fall asleep and stay sleeping.

What Does ZIESTA Do to Turn Out the Lights?

ZIESTA is best used with a healthy bedtime routine, of course.  Winding down at the same time every night, keeping lights low and screens off for at least an hour before bedtime, and avoiding heavy meals and stimulants too close to bedtime will all help. That said, when you just can’t get your mind to shut off, or you aren’t able to keep a consistent bedtime schedule, the clinically researched ingredients in this formula can help.  It contains:

  • Magnesium (from Magnesium Glycinate)
  • Valerian (Root) Powder
  • Passionflower (Aerial Parts) Extract
  • Hops (Flower) Powder
  • L-Theanine
  • Melatonin

These are all ingredients used to help your mind and body relax and, yes ZIESTA contains a touch of melatonin to top up your natural levels and encourage a healthier circadian rhythm.
