Why a good night's sleep is so important
In addition to healthy nutrition and hard training, your lifestyle is of course also extremely important for good health and seeing results in the mirror. A very important part of that lifestyle is a good night's sleep. A lack of sufficient sleep not only leads to more fatigue and less concentration, it can also cause you to build up less muscle mass and lose less fat than when you sleep properly for 8 hours or more per night! A good night is your first step towards a better result. XXL Nutrition has a broad range of supplements for better sleep. For example, Melatonin, L-Tryptophan or, for example, 5-HTP.
When it comes to sleep, melatonin is the most well-known supplement of all. This substance is normally made by your body in the evening and then causes you to become tired. However, in the event of jet lag or if you spend a lot of time looking at screens in the evening, this process can be disrupted. In that case, a melatonin supplement is a solution. Melatonin helps with falling asleep faster and helps in alleviating the experience of jet lag.
5-HTP is a substance that is converted into serotonin in your brain. When taken in the evening, this serotonin is in turn converted to melatonin, the substance we have described above.
