How Harmony+ May Help Sleep Disorders

Share This Post

Insomnia and other sleep disorders are often brought on as a result of stress and anxiety. Chronic or excessive stress can create a dysregulated circadian rhythm which is your internal sleep-wake cycle. The imbalance can cause wakefulness at night and severe daytime fatigue or sleepiness. Breaking the cycle of stress and sleeplessness may become progressively difficult because the inability to sleep may also turn into a source of stress. 

An essential hormone for circadian synchronization is melatonin. Several biological and physiological processes in the body are regulated by this hormone and stress can interfere with the body’s melatonin production. It’s best to let our bodies produce melatonin naturally versus supplementing with a synthetic form. 

Ways to regulate melatonin and maintain a balanced sleep-wake cycle: 

-Get 15 minutes of morning sunlight 

-Reduce or restrict screens and blue light in the evening

-Dim household lights one hr before bed (darkness stimulates the pineal gland to secrete melatonin)

-Eat eggs, fish, and nuts 

-Avoid caffeine in the evening 

-No direct EMF or Wi-Fi exposure 

Tart Cherry Juice contains high amounts of melatonin. Research has found that taking a tart cherry juice concentrate increases the amount of exogenous melatonin in the body, which benefits healthy men and women by increasing the quantity and quality of their sleep as well as helping to treat sleep disorders.

Harmony+ may support the production of melatonin by including vitamin B9. The amino acid tryptophan must be available for the production of melatonin to occur. A co-factor in the conversion of L-5-hydroxytryptophan to serotonin, which is necessary for the production of melatonin, is vitamin B6, 10 mg of B6 is included in Harmony+. (2)

Recent research has shown that supplementing with high amounts of vitamin B6 considerably lessens symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. Researchers at the University of Reading found that after monitoring the effects of a high vitamin B6 dose on young adults for more than a month, the participants reported feeling less anxious. The study was published in the prestigious journal, Human Psychopharmacology: Clinical and Experimental. (1)

Harmony+ also includes magnesium which is widely considered to be one of the most important minerals for sleep. Magnesium has a large impact on the nervous system. It helps maintain muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm, and supports neurotransmitters that help with a calming effect in the body. Supplementing with magnesium and vitamin B6 can lessen the severity of restless leg syndrome patients’ symptoms and enhance their quality of sleep.

“Amazing, my sleep has really improved. It’s easy to get back to sleep if I wake in the night as well. I see huge improvements on my sleep tracker as well and am feeling so much better!”

Healthy stress management skills may also support the circadian rhythm and sleep quality. Incorporating Harmony+ into your routine may increase the likelihood of restorative sleep when it becomes a challenge.
