The Three Key Ingredients For Deep Relaxation

There’s nothing better than a little rest and relaxation at the end of a long day but cultivating that blissful feeling of total relaxation can be a challenge. To help we’ve compiled a list of tried-and-true ingredients that have been used to promote natural relaxation all over the world. 

Ingredients For Relaxation

Tart Cherry- This potent little powerhouse provides relaxation support in two different ways! Tart Cherry extract has been shown to promote the production of melatonin (the naturally occurring sleep hormone in our bodies) thus enhancing both sleep time and sleep efficiency. Tart cherry is also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a favorite among active adults looking for natural inflammation pain relief.  

Chamomile- Did you know that the world consumes more than one million cups of chamomile tea every day? With reported benefits for insomnia and anxiety, it’s not surprising that this little flower would find its way into relaxation routines. Chamomile can be consumed in the form of tea, oil, or extracts and is a popular ingredient in cosmetics as well as sleep supplements. 

Magnesium-  This important little mineral plays a key role in over 300 internal reactions within the human body. Magnesium is crucial to muscle function and supporting the immune system. However, magnesium deficiency can be a huge barrier to proper relaxation. Since magnesium is essential for muscle function, active bodies require this mineral in greater amounts than the general public. Adding magnesium to your relaxation routine gives your body the nutrients it needs to support muscle relaxation and hopefully avoid cramping, twitching, and other muscle discomforts.  

What do these three relaxing ingredients have in common? They can ALL be found in Nuun Rest. We developed Nuun Rest with these ingredients specifically to support the body’s natural relaxation response. Tart cherry extract promotes melatonin production for deeper, longer sleep. Chamomile soothes the senses in the Chamomile Lemon flavor of Nuun Rest, and Magnesium aids in the easing of tension in tired muscles. Together, this triple-punch has become a fast favorite with Nuun fans.
