6 Calming Elixir Powders For A Restful Night's Sleep
This month at GMB, we’re all about sleep! We’ve covered foods that can help you fall asleep and what you can do to create a healthy nighttime routine. Here, we take you through some of our favourite sleep elixirs. They are blends of ayurvedic herbs and sleep botanicals to encourage a sense of calm and enhance your pre-bedtime routine. They all work to help you to unwind and get a better night’s rest naturally and they are a great option for winter when you can curl up with a warm mug before bed! Below are some of our top picks:
1. Four Sigmatic Mushroom Elixir with Reishi
When consumed in continuous, small doses, reishi has been shown to support the body’s sleep cycles as well as support stress. It has amazing calming effects which makes it the perfect ingredient to reach for before bed and it happens to be the star of the Four Sigmatic Mushroom Elixir Mix!
