The Science of Catching Zzz's: Meet our new sleep gummies

by Liza Semenova

Dreamland. The Land of Nod. Whatever you call it, catching quality Zzz’s is an important part of your health. With our new SmartyPants for Healthy Sleep* , we’re giving you a nutritious and delicious way to ease into sleep. After all, winding down is usually easier said than done.

Healthy Sleep* is a comprehensive formula made with a blend of nutrients and clinically tested ingredients that make the perfect companion to any bedtime routine.  

Let’s dive into the superstar ingredients of Healthy Sleep*!

Between binge-watching your latest Netflix obsession before bed and waking up before your alarm, it can be hard to wake up feeling like you’re ready to take on the day. When it comes to getting shut-eye, our new formula is designed to support your full sleep cycle, so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.* With a robust blend of vitamins, prebiotic and probiotics, SmartyPants for Healthy Sleep* also works to support your immune system with clinically tested M-Gard® prebiotic and vitamin D3.*

We’ve formulated Healthy‡ Sleep* with non-habit-forming melatonin, a key ingredient in helping you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.* Our circadian rhythms, or our 24-hour internal clocks, are all connected to a master clock, a cluster of about 20,000 nerve cells called the suprachiasmatic nucleus or SCN which is highly sensitive to light. When it’s dark, our master clock tells our brain Hey, it’s time to get sleepy, causing our brain to produce more melatonin to make us tired. On the other hand, when it’s light, our master clock sends signals that say It’s time to be alert and awake! According to Michael A. Grandner, Ph.D., MTR who specializes in sleep and circadian research, taking melatonin can help this move along the process of moving us into sleep.

Unwind with L-Theanine  (AlphaWave®), which promotes calmness, relaxation and stress support during those later hours.* L-theanine is an amino acid, commonly found in green and black tea. The best time to take our goodnight gummies is 30-60 min before bedtime, just in time to put down the phone and cozy up with your pillow.

What is Melatonin? 

  • Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced by your pineal gland, which is located above the middle of your brain. It reacts to light, helping your body regulate its sleep-wake cycles.

What is vitamin D3?

  • Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s not found in many foods naturally.Your body produces vitamin D when it’s exposed to sunlight. We include vitamin D in its premium form vitamin D3 because it’s what your body prefers and can easily use.
