-- Avena Originals
believes quality sleep is critical to leading a healthy lifestyle, which is why the company advocates a recent article
featured in The Huffington Post. As a company that aims to enhance overall health and sleep quality through nutritional products, Avena Originals items are designed to deepen sleep quality, sustain the natural rhythms of the body and relieve tension that prevents individuals from having quality sleep.
The staff behind the natural product line asserts that many health issues go unnoticed because people are uninformed of just how much quality sleep they should get each night and because signs of sleep deprivation are neglected. "If you're experiencing drowsiness during the day, irritability, stress, anxiety or depression, you may be suffering from sleep deprivation," said an Avena representative. "If you're tired after sleeping or you have problems with memory, concentration or a lack of appetite, these are also signs of sleep deprivation."
According to the article, researchers from Penn State, the University of Crete, the University of Athens and the New York School of Medicine found that after a workweek of little sleep, "sleeping in on the weekends doesn't seem to improve performance of your brain."
Dr. Alexandros Vgontzas, M.D., director of the Sleep Research and Treatment Center at Penn State, weighs in on the study and its implications. "The usual practice of extending sleep during the weekend is not adequate in reversing the cumulative effects on cognitive function resulting from mild sleep deprivation," he said. The article adds, "researchers found that levels of inflammatory and stress hormones went up during the sleep-deprivation period, but then they went back to normal with the extra-sleep days. Similar results were seen for sleepiness. However, the brain functioning did not get better with the extra sleep over the last three nights."
The Avena Originals team discusses how sleep affects physical and mental health. "How much sleep you get each night, or the quality of your sleep, is pertinent to your physical and mental health," said a representative.
"Many mood and anxiety disorders that worsen are attributed to a lack of sufficient sleep. Students have shown that one of the first signs of depression is difficulty in sleep. Changing your sleeping habits completely can dramatically improve the quality of your life." Avena offers products to assist in the nutritional side of sleep in an effort to improve sleep patterns. These products include Toco, Superfood, Herb cocktail, Enhanced Enzymes, Proteolytic Probiotics and Zinc. Sleep experts and the team at Avena Originals recommend getting a set number of hours every night of sleep - optimal to your body's needs - and waking up at the same time every day.
