Rest & Recover - A natural superfood mix to help you sleep
Catching zzz’s, getting some shuteye, hitting the hay, having a kip or going out like a light – no matter what you call it, sleep is a vital part of our day-to-day life and unfortunately, most of us aren’t getting nearly enough of it.
Factors such as stress, excess caffeine consumption, light, and using electronics before bed can all impact the quality and quantity of sleep we get each night and in turn, have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing.
For those who struggle to fall asleep, you will be glad to know you can stop counting sheep and start consuming natural superfoods before bed to help you get that vital rest.
Our new product, Rest & Recover, is a blend of natural superfoods that are designed to help your body fall asleep and stay asleep, with additional healing benefits from the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and stress-relieving properties of some of nature’s most powerful nutrients.
Our Natural Superfood Ingredients
Much like our Bright & Green superfood formula, we’ve designed the Rest & Recover blend to be natural, organic and packed full of vitamins and minerals to improve your health while you sleep.
What's Actually Inside? Just Natural Superfoods
Here’s an A-Z recap of the natural superfoods you’ll find in each Rest & Recover powder blend.
Turmeric is a powerful golden spice, used traditionally in Indian curries, which packs a punch on the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant front.
The main active ingredient is curcumin, which has been linked to improved brain function and lowered risk of heart disease, as well as having a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant impact on the body.

ORGANIC COCONUT MILK
Coconut milk contains a healthier type of fat, known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCT’s have been linked with weight loss, as they stimulate energy through a process called thermogenesis, or heat production.
Research conducted into MCT’s indicates that this thermogenic effect may help to reduce body weight and waist size.
Another benefit of coconuts is a lipid they contain called lauric acid, which may support the immune system with potential antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
LEMON BALM EXTRACT
Lemon balm is a lemon-scented herb that has been used in traditional medicine to improve mood, relieve stress and boost cognitive function
This extract may help to reduce symptoms of anxiety and ease sleep disorders such as insomnia and restlessness, helping you to ease your mind as you wander into the land of nod.
Not only is cinnamon a delicious, fragrant spice, it is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits to help your body heal, fight infections and viruses, reduce allergy symptoms and protect your heart health!
