Natural Stacks - SLEEPBIOTIC™ with Sunfiber

$48.95
SKU NS-SLEEPBIOTIC
Quantity

SleepBiotic™ features a natural blend of prebiotic fibers (SunFiber®) with glycine and chamomile to support both optimal digestion and deep sleep.†

Research suggests that the compounds in SleepBiotic™ can improve gut and overall health. The benefits may include optimal digestion, increased metabolism, and deeper sleep.†


How it Works:

Pro-biotics are the “good bacteria” that comprise our gut microbiome and are part of a healthy, fully-functioning digestive system.

Pre-biotics are a class of indigestible starchy plant fibers that promote gut and overall health by encouraging the growth of “friendly” gut flora (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli). Resistant starches “resist” digestion and pass through the digestive system largely intact until they reach the large intestine (the colon).

There, our gut bacteria ferment these prebiotics into short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate, and butyrate. These fatty acids help maintain proper pH in the gut, regulate blood sugar, increase satiety, and discourage the growth of “unfriendly” bacteria.

SunFiber® & Green Banana Flour

In 2004, Nutrition & Metabolism found that “replacement of 5.4% of total dietary carbohydrate with RS significantly increased post­prandial lipid oxidation and therefore could decrease fat accumulation in the long-­term.” [1]

The American Physiological Society found that “interactions between RS and the colonic microflora appear to be of benefit to the host in the short and long term. ” [3]

The results of a study from 2015 published in The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health showed that a single dose of resistant starch from green banana flour not only improved the glucose response after a meal in both lean and overweight individuals, but it improved glucose and insulin levels for 48 hours [4].

Ceylon Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been researched extensively over the years and is well known for its anti­inflammatory properties. In 2012, The Journal of Traditional Complementary Medicine published research that found that “after chemical profiling of cinnamon's components, their biological activities including antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, antitumor, anti-hypertension, antilipemic, antidiabetes, gastroprotective and immunomodulatory were reported by many investigators.” [11]

The European Journal of Clinical Investigation noted in 2006 that in people suffering from type 2 diabetes, “subjects with a higher initial plasma glucose level may benefit more from cinnamon intake… The cinnamon extract seems to have a moderate effect in reducing fasting plasma glucose concentrations in diabetic patients with poor glycemic control.” [12]

According to research published in The Proceedings of Nutrition Society’s 2008 publication, “Subjects with the metabolic syndrome who consume an aqueous extract of cinnamon have been shown to have improved fasting blood glucose, systolic blood pressure, percentage body fat and increased lean body mass.” [13
