Our survey revealed a significant improvement in sleep quality!
We’re delighted to welcome you back for the final installment of our 3-part series on Sleep.
Among the results of our survey (you can still take it by clicking here to take it)! among our customers, we found that 63% of participants reported an average 61% improvement in their quality of sleep.
On the strength of this magnificent discovery, we thought it important to share this positive information with you in Part 1, and also to explain the physiological functions of sleep and the types of sleep disorders in Part 2, where you will also find practical advice on how to promote good sleep. Part 1 by clicking here, and Part 2 by clicking here.
In this 3rd and final Part, we will address the question that is of particular interest to us, namely :
How do the active ingredients in AtremoPlus work to promote good quality sleep?
Even though the most important thing is that the results are there, with the survey showing that many of our customers are observing a very significant improvement in their quality of sleep, it is interesting to understand how the active ingredients in AtremoPlus can have a positive impact on our sleep, and what are they?
1 – L-dopa
Let’s start with the most important active ingredient in Atremoplus, L-Dopa, from the Vicia Faba plant.
Our Premium dietary supplement is even standardized at 21.5 mg of L-dopa per 1g of powder. This information is very important, as natural food supplements are rarely standardized. The standardization of Atremoplus allows precise dosing of daily L-dopa intake, which reassures and encourages more and more doctors.
L-dopa is known to have an impact on motor skills, cognition and mood . L-dopa (levodopa) is a natural amino acid which acts as a precursor to dopamine, an essential neurotransmitter in the brain. Although L-dopa is mainly associated with the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders, its role in sleep is linked to its influence on the regulation of dopamine, which in turn can affect certain aspects of sleep.
In this way, L-dopa can contribute to a better quality of sleep thanks to :
- Mood enhancement: Dopamine is often associated with pleasure and mood regulation. An increase in dopamine can promote a sense of well-being and calm, which can help reduce anxiety and stress, two factors that can disrupt sleep ;
- Reducing involuntary movements: L-dopa is commonly used to treat Parkinson’s disease, which is characterized by tremors and involuntary movements. By reducing these movements, it can contribute to a more peaceful night’s sleep.
2 – Flavonoids, carotenoids and polyphenols
Could the bioactive compounds in AtremoPlus have a positive impact on sleep? Although their specific role in sleep quality is not fully understood, certain mechanisms can be envisaged:
- Antioxidant effects: The compounds have antioxidant properties, meaning they can protect cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Oxidative stress can disrupt brain and nervous system function, with a negative impact on sleep.
- Anti-inflammatory effects: flavonoids, carotenoids and polyphenols also have anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation can be linked to sleep disorders, so a diet or supplementation rich in these compounds can help reduce inflammation and promote better quality sleep. Chronic inflammation is also a source of pain, and pain can prevent good quality sleep.
- Interaction with neurotransmitters: Some of these compounds may interact with brain neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, which play an important role in regulating sleep, mood and well-being.
- Effect on hormone regulation: Certain polyphenols, such as the catechins present in AtremoPlus, can influence the production of hormones such as melatonin, which is essential for regulating the sleep-wake cycle.
3 – Vitamins D, B6, B12, C, E, K,
Certain vitamins play an essential role in regulating sleep and can contribute to a better quality of sleep. Here are some of the most important sleep-related vitamins naturally present in Vicia Faba, the plant on which AtremoPlus is based:
- Vitamin D: Vitamin D is important for mood regulation and can influence circadian rhythm, the internal biological clock responsible for regulating the sleep-wake cycle. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with sleep problems and mood disorders.
- Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 plays a crucial role in the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. Melatonin is essential for inducing sleep and maintaining a healthy circadian rhythm.
- Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is involved in melatonin synthesis and nervous system regulation. A well-functioning nervous system can promote relaxation and sleep.
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce oxidative stress in the body. It can also improve the absorption of certain minerals, such as magnesium, which also plays a role in sleep quality.
- Vitamin E: Vitamin E is another antioxidant that can protect cells from oxidative stress and contribute to better overall health, which can indirectly improve sleep. In Atremoplus, we’ve added natural vitamin E to ensure the recommended daily amount in just 2 scoops (5g of powder).
- Vitamin K2: Some research has suggested that vitamin K can have a positive effect on sleep quality by improving sleep cycles.
4 – Minerals: magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium
They play an essential role in body function, including sleep regulation. Here are some important minerals contained in Vicia Faba and their mechanisms that may be related to sleep quality:
- Magnesium: Magnesium is often considered a “relaxing” mineral, as it plays a crucial role in regulating the nervous system and muscles. It promotes muscle relaxation and can help calm the nervous system, making it easier to fall asleep and improving sleep quality.
- Calcium: Calcium is also important for sleep regulation. It helps produce melatonin, the hormone that regulates the sleep-wake rhythm. Adequate calcium levels can therefore support better sleep quality.
- Zinc: Zinc is involved in the regulation of neurotransmitters, including serotonin, which plays a role in regulating mood and sleep. Zinc deficiency can disrupt these functions and potentially affect sleep.
- Iron: Iron is essential for the formation of hemoglobin in the blood, which carries oxygen to body tissues, including the brain. Iron deficiency can lead to fatigue and sleep problems.
- Potassium: Potassium is important for fluid balance in the body. Adequate potassium intake can help prevent nocturnal cramps, which can disrupt sleep.
As you can see, these minerals, vitamins and trace elements can act synergistically to promote better quality sleep.
A virtuous circle, thanks to better sleep quality
The mechanisms of action of the active ingredients contained in Atremoplus make it easier to understand the link with the improved quality of sleep observed by the vast majority of our customers.
Given that, as we saw in our previous newsletter, sleep has detoxifying and regenerative properties for the body, in fine, getting a better night’s sleep means entering a virtuous circle.
It’s true that we regularly receive testimonials from our customers who tell us that they feel more alive, more present, stronger and in better spirits. It goes without saying that a good night’s sleep is essential if we are to have the energy we need to get through the day and enjoy life.
We wish you a safe journey back to school, well rested and refreshed by a good night’s sleep.
