OxySleep is a non-stimulant night time supplement that has been scientifically formulated using ingredients which have shown to not only increase the quality of sleep, but also promote post-training recovery, fat loss and muscle gain. It comes in 3 delicious flavours.
It is recommended that adults get 7-9 hours of sleep a night for successful weight management and regulation of bodily functions. However, living a busy life can make it difficult to meet these recommendations, especially for those who struggle getting to sleep.
Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases (hypertension), metabolic disorders (obesity and type 2 diabetes) and mental disorders (depression and anxiety) ¹. Findings also show that an insufficient amount of sleep may compromise the efficacy of fat loss by over 50% and result in greater muscle loss ². The evidence makes it very clear that an adequate amount of sleep should be a serious consideration when establishing an optimal recovery routine.
INCREASING SLEEP QUALITY AND TIME SPENT IN DEEP SLEEP
A number of ingredients used in OxySleep (Magnesium, Zinc, ZMA, 5-HTP, Passionflower, Lemon Balm, Valerian Root) have been added due to the potential effects on deep sleep regulation. Magnesium, a muscle relaxant and inducer of deep sleep, improves sleep efficiency, time and early morning awakening ³. In combination with Zinc, it has shown a remarkable improvement in sleep quality ⁴. Research also suggests that Passionflower can help treat anxiety, insomnia and some forms of pain due to potentially increasing the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a mood enhancing chemical ⁵
PROMOTING FAT LOSS
The Oxysleep formula not only induces sleep, but contains active ingredients (Green Tea Extract, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Raspberry Ketones, African Wild Mango, Theanine and Chromium) to promote fat burning. Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been found to reduce fat gain and inhibit fat conversion⁶, with studies also showing that Green Tea Extract increases fat oxidation at rest and during exercise ⁷.
OPTIMISING MUSCLE GAIN AND RECOVERY
The hypothalamus (section of the brain) triggers the growth hormone (GH) release during sleep, which plays an important role in enhancing muscle growth. Research suggests that Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic Acid (HICA) decreases muscle protein breakdown and supplementation has shown to increase muscle mass and be effective in reducing delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) ⁸.
