Let’s face it, we could all do with a little more sleep. In fact, 2 out of 5 Aussie adults struggle with sleep on a regular basis. That means 40% of Australians are not sleeping for the recommended 7-9 hours!
While the occasional night of poor sleep isn’t the end of the world, over time a lack of sleep can impact our ability to cope with daily tasks and increase the risk of more serious conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and mood disorders.
If you’ve tried everything from magic lotions to blue light glasses, weighted eye masks to white noise machines, and still have no luck. Maybe its time to hit the herbal brew. Making a sleepy tea part of your night-time routine can provide a calming effect that gets your mind and body ready for bed.
We are big fans of the Roogenic Tea range here at Gr8 Health. They are created using native plants that have been traditionally used to restore balance within the body and improve overall wellbeing.
The Roogenic’s Sleep tea was the definite standout for me from this range. For someone who has struggled with falling asleep in the past, this product has worked magic for me. I was also delighted with the fruity and berry flavour.
The Native Sleep tea ticks all the boxes when it comes to sleep. It is made with a blend of Australian bush plants that have been traditionally used to ease an overactive mind, relax the body, promote a deep sleep, or improve overall wellbeing.
Benefits of the Roogenics Sleep Tea
Jilungin has traditionally been used by the Nyul Nyul Community as a sleep remedy. The native plant has a sedative like effect, supporting relaxation, clearing the mind, and preparing the body for sleep. Elder Bruno, the Indigenous grower that sources Jilungin for Roogenic says “the plant put you to sleep... a long deep sleep”.
Coming from the mint family, research has shown this aromatic herb can help reduce stress, anxiety and improve sleeplessness. Additional research has also demonstrated potential benefits for mood, cognitive performance, and restlessness.
Made from the colourful petals of the hibiscus flower, this tea is rich in free-radical fighting antioxidants and minerals which can boost your immune system and reduce your risk of chronic health conditions. It can also support healthy sleep patterns. Research has found that regular consumption of Hibiscus tea provides anxiolytic and sedative effects. This be thanks to its melatonin and L-theanine content.
