SLEEP COLLAGEN SHOT™
Sip, sip, sleep! OurVital Proteins® Sleep Collagen Shot™ ($45; shop now) is a delicate blend of blueberry and lavender flavors brimming with function from collagen peptides and sleep-inducing ingredients, like liquid melatonin, magnesium and GABA.**
As a refresher, melatonin helps regulate your sleep schedules. The natural hormone, found in the brain, encourages you to fall asleep — and stay asleep — longer by putting you in a state of peaceful wakefulness as part of your pre-bedtime routine.**
Magnesium is also said to promote a more restful night's sleep** by helping to maintain healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter associated with restorative sleep. Think of magnesium as GABA’s equally important partner. They work hand-in-hand. Without magnesium’s ability to increase GABA, the neurotransmitter wouldn’t be able to promote a calm, relaxed state for the body.**
Simply twist off, sip, and help support a healthy night's sleep.**
Vital Performance™ Sleep
When it comes to post-workout recovery, experts say that sleep – specifically, deep sleep – is vital because it's when your body restores itself. It does this by helping to balance your metabolism and blood sugar levels while also increasing blood flow to your muscles.
Essentially, your body becomes stronger while you sleep – not during your favorite bootcamp or yoga sculpt class. And that's exactly why we dreamt upVital Performance™, an extension of our Vital Proteins® brand that puts the spotlight on every step of your fitness journey. Vital Performance™ SLEEP ($35.99; shop now), the third phase in this 3-step system, helps you wake up feeling ready to take on your next training session.** (Fun fact: It's NSF Certified For Sport®!)
What makes this product so special is the addition ofcollagen and the omission ofmelatonin. Instead, SLEEP boasts rest- and relaxation-inducing functional ingredients such as GABA, L-theanine and magnesium. While many sleep aids on the market include melatonin, ours includes L-tryptophan, an amino acid that, when ingested, gets converted into melatonin naturally. The goal? To provide you with the extra boost needed to reach that coveted deep sleep stage. Additional functional ingredients like 5-HTP and B vitamins are designed to have you feeling restored so you’re ready to tackle your next-day performance.**
Plus, SLEEP is super easy to use. Add 1 scoop to 8 fl. oz. of hot water, 15-30 minutes before sleep. Stir thoroughly before enjoying.
If liquids at night aren't for you, that's okay! We've got Wellness Gummies for that. Vital Proteins®Sleep Gummies ($17.99; shop now) contain a unique blend of ingredients to help you slip into better sleep to wake up feeling rested and ready for the day.**
Our blueberry-flavored Sleep Gummies boast functional ingredients like melatonin, L-theanine and vitamin B6 to support healthy and restful sleep in a convenient bite.**
Enjoy 1-2 Sleep Gummies before bedtime to support healthy and restful sleep.**
