How Quality Sleep Contributes to Healthy Aging: Here’s How To Improve Yours

The Connection Between Sleep and Longevity

Deep sleep is a time of rest, repair, and regeneration. During this stage, our bodies help maintain bodily homeostasis, cellular integrity, and support a healthy immune system response. Disrupted sleep patterns can result in a less optimal immune response, potentially making our bodies more susceptible to everyday challenges.

Among these waste products are beta-amyloid proteins, which serve as an indicator for cognitive health in older adults. By efficiently removing these substances, sleep helps protect the brain from the effects of long-term exposure to metabolic waste.

Such activities can reduce normal, everyday stress and anxiety levels, physiological factors often linked to sleep disturbances. Instead, try a sleep aid that includes relaxing neurotransmitters and botanicals that promote healthy sleep cycles.*

ProHealth's Sleep Longevity™ is a meticulously formulated supplement that combines nutrient and botanical ingredients known for their sleep-promoting effects. It offers a holistic approach, targeting different aspects of sleep health – from promoting relaxation and soothing the digestive system, to supporting muscle and nerve health.*

This includes Ziziphus jujuba, a cornerstone in traditional Chinese medicine for promoting relaxation and sleep, Corydalis, used historically to reduce everyday stress, and Valerian and Passion Flower, both renowned for their sleep-enhancing properties.*

Recognizing the intricate link between digestive health and quality sleep, Sleep Longevity™ includes ingredients aimed at calming and supporting the digestive tract. Lemon Balm is used for its relaxing effects on the digestive system and the nervous system, Ginger and Peppermint aid digestion and promote proper elimination, while Hops have a direct relaxing effect on the central nervous system and can soothe digestion.*

Maintaining muscle and nerve health is pivotal for good sleep. Sleep Longevity™ contains ZMA™ (a combination of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B-6) and Magnesium Taurinate, two forms of highly bioavailable magnesium. Magnesium aids in balancing nerve transmission and muscle fiber contraction, and the added L-theanine supports a calm nervous system.*

Amino acids, the building blocks of life, play a crucial role in nerve cell health, and the production and balance of neurotransmitters and hormones. Sleep Longevity™ provides GABA, known for its calming effect on the nervous system, and Melatonin, known for supporting healthy sleep patterns and mood. 5-HTP, which the body uses to make serotonin, and L-Theanine, a calming amino acid that boosts levels of GABA, are also part of this sleep-enhancing supplement.*

Furthermore, innovative, scientifically-backed sleep aids like ProHealth's Sleep Longevity™ offer promising means of augmenting sleep quality, underlining the exciting potential of these interventions in the quest for healthy aging.*
