Guest on national TV show reveals simple solution for better sleep

better sleep

When was the last time you got a great night’s rest? If sleep has become elusive, changing hormones or even technology may be to blame. Registered dietitian and author Dr. Felicia Stoler appeared on the national Better TV to show viewers safe, natural solutions for common concerns. For better sleep, she suggested Suntheanine, a patented form of the amino acid L-theanine.

Does this sound like you? You’re busy up until you crawl into bed, allowing yourself very little time to unwind first. Perhaps you keep your smart phone or tablet in the bedroom. Maybe you routinely fall asleep to late-night TV. Most of us “don’t practice good sleep hygiene,” Stoler pointed out. She also explained that physical changes to our bodies, such as hormones, can impact our ability to get a good night’s rest.

Stoler said that she likes Suntheanine because it helps her to relax so that she can fall asleep easier. It does this without the risk of addiction or morning grogginess. Researchers from the National Institute of Mental Health in Japan found that taking Suntheanine before bed produces a significant improvement in sleep quality. It naturally stimulates activity in the brain known as alpha waves, which are associated with a relaxed but alert mental state. That helps to calm your mind, so that you may fall asleep faster and more easily.

Suntheanine also helps with focus and concentration. Another study assessed Suntheanine’s effects on the anxiety levels of healthy university students. Researchers found that highly anxious students who received 200 mg of Suntheanine improved their ability to pay attention and had better reaction times compared to those who received a placebo. The heart rates of those receiving Suntheanine also decreased.

Suntheanine’s effects are generally felt within 30 minutes and have been shown to last over 6 hours.
