Now more than ever, we’re in the market for high-quality rest. Let’s be honest, we could all get some better zzz’s.
If you’re considering what to give your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, a natural sleep aid that does the trick and tastes delicious could be the perfect gift. Look no further than the best tea for good sleep: Rest Assured™.
Rest as the Ultimate Gift of Love
According to the CDC, The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and Sleep Research Society, adults need a minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night. The sweet spot is between 7 and 9 hours, both to improve feelings of restfulness and long-term health outcomes.
In fact, research shows that regularly getting fewer than 7 hours per night increases your risk for things like:
- Unwanted weight gain and obesity
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease and stroke
- Impaired immune function
- Errors and accidents
- More pain
Unfortunately, we’re living in a time where getting enough regular rest isn’t easy. Some surveys show that only two-thirds of Americans are getting 7 hours a night. Why not make Valentine’s Day about helping your loved ones change that?
Rest Assured™ is designed with the tired adult in mind. Created with evidence-based ingredients to encourage restful sleep, it’s a simple wellness routine that can make all the difference for those struggling with how to stay asleep.
Sleep-Promoting Ingredients in Rest Assured™
Rest Assured™ is a caffeine-free tea infusion ready to delight taste buds and calm the mind for a good night’s rest. It’s formulated with active ingredients to encourage restorative, high-quality sleep.
Jujube Seed Extract
The jujube plant is a small shrub with thorny branches native to Asia. It produces small, oval-shaped, dark red fruits that wrinkle when ripened and contain a single hard seed in the middle.
Jujube has a long history of use, including to support restorative sleep and to alleviate stress. Its compounds have been studied for their hypnotic effects and ability to target serotonin production and influence circadian rhythm. Jujube has even been found to increase non-rapid eye movement sleep and restorative sleep duration.
Organic Passionflower & Lemon Balm
Passionflower is a climbing vine native to the tropical United States as well as Central and South America. Lemon balm is an herb in the mint family, and its leaves have a distinct lemon scent. Both have a number of uses but are primarily purposed for reducing stress and anxiety and improving sleep.
A 2011 randomized controlled trial found that consuming one cup of passionflower tea at night helped improve sleep duration and feelings of restfulness in the morning. And a 2020 trial found that even 60 mg of passionflower extract daily for two weeks could significantly increase sleep duration.
Other research has also found that lemon balm extract has a calming effect that can help improve mood, reduce stress, and help treat insomnia.
Organic Ashwagandha & Holy Basil
Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub native to Asia and Africa, commonly used to improve sleep. Holy basil, a relative of traditional basil, is a plant native to India with pale green leaves. Both are considered to be adaptogens, which are botanicals used to help your body better manage physical and mental stress. This can translate to improved sleep, too.
A 2020 study found that 120 mg of standardized ashwagandha extract given daily for six weeks significantly improved overall sleep quality among healthy adults who scored high on non-restorative sleep measures, a cardinal symptom of insomnia. A 2021 meta-analysis found plenty of evidence that ashwagandha can help improve sleep among adults.
As for holy basil, research has shown that this protective herb is beneficial for helping your body address physical, chemical, metabolic, and psychological stressors. Studies suggest that holy basil can be an effective part of managing stress as well as supporting immunity and brain health.
A Restful Combination
Enjoyed together in a nightly cup of Rest Assured™, these ingredients can help support deep, restorative sleep, as well as better management of stress that often impedes a good night’s rest.
