Snooze is made for anyone who wants to improve his or her sleep. In particular, the following three aspects of sleep can be improved: the time it takes to sleep, sleep efficiency and the feeling of sleep in the morning.
When Nature Calls
GRADE YOUR SLEEP
In modern society there are several factors that can affect sleep negatively. Examples of this include stress, artificial light, irregular sleep times and restlessness. A lot of people need help falling asleep and getting a good night's sleep. Snooze is specifically designed to help these people.
Sleep is often overlooked when it comes to maintaining a well-functioning cognition. The effect of sleep on memory and other cognitive measurements cannot be emphasized enough. A good summary of the most important findings illustrating the importance of sleep is given in a review by Matthew Walker. The result of multiple cognitive measurements are negatively influenced by acute sleep deprivation. In addition to acute sleep deprivation, the same negative effects are also observed when sleep is not long enough. This phenomenon is also called chronic sleep restriction. The average person needs seven hours of sleep per night, when reduced to six hours of sleep per night, the negative effects become visible after one week. It cannot be emphasised enough that sleep is necessary to use the brain in the most effective way possible. Snooze contains six ingredients that will improve your sleep.
As well as cognition, sleep can also be classified into different objectively measurable categories. For example, sleep latency is the time you need to switch from waking to sleep and sleep efficiency is the percentage of time you actually sleep in bed. The first ingredient in the Snooze formula is melatonin. It has been shown that melatonin reduces sleep latency and improves sleep efficiency. Melatonin is produced every night by our brain and is an important regulating molecule that drives the sleep-wake cycle. The amount of melatonin our brain produces is influenced by the amount of light we perceive. All kinds of light, including artificial light, suppress that synthesis of melatonin. Melatonin is produced in the pancreas. First, tryptophan is converted into 5-HTP, which in turn is converted into serotonin. In the end, serotonin can be converted into melatonin. Tryptophan is the second ingredient in the Snooze formula. Addition of tryptophan results in an increased amount of tryptophan and 5-HTP in the brain. It is thought that tryptophan works by providing the brain with the necessary building blocks for the production of essential sleep regulating products such as serotonin and melatonin. The third ingredient in the Snooze formula is vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is needed to catalyse a large number of important neurological reactions, including serotonin biosynthesis. The production of serotonin, and melatonin in turn, depends on the presence of vitamin B6.
Theanine is the fourth ingredient in the Snooze formula and it has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. The anti-stress effects of theanine will ensure a relaxed feeling just before sleeping. This will help you to rest and sleep well. Magnesium and zinc are the last ingredients in the Snooze formula. Since the beginning of this century there has been a gradual decrease in the intake of magnesium via the diet. A large part of the western world receives less magnesium per day than the recommended daily amount (ADH). Magnesium, like vitamin B6, is an essential cofactor. Magnesium is used by the body in more than 300 enzymatic reactions, including reactions involved in neurotransmitter biosynthesis.
Magnesium is often used as a supplement to improve sleep. The exact mechanism is not known but magnesium is thought to affect the synthesis of melatonin by having an effect on the enzyme that converts serotonin into the direct precursor of melatonin. In a study with older participants, magnesium intake increased overall sleep time, sleep efficiency, serum melatonin concentration and decreased sleep latency and improved subjective measurements of insomnia. At a psychological level, magnesium intake provides a relaxed state of mind by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Zinc is an essential trace element which is important for different biochemical and physiological elements related to the growth and function of the brain and also cellular metabolism. An example of the influence of sinking on a psychological level is the strong correlation between sinking intake and depression in women. Like magnesium, zinc is thought to affect the activity of the enzyme that produces the direct precursor of melatonin.
