Sleep like a baby again!
FALL ASLEEP AS SOON AS YOUR HEAD HITS THE PILLOW AND WAKE UP FEELING REFRESHED AND RECOVERED WITH SLEEP/ RECOVER SUPPLEMENTS!
Sleep affects your entire body, your body recovers from exercise during sleep, repairs those muscle fibers you broke down in your workout and grows new muscle. Your body has a large output of growth hormone when you sleep and that make you anabolic!! At the same time our brain replenishes crucial neurotransmitters, these are; adrenaline, dopamine, noradrenaline, acetylcholine and there are many, many more! These (besides muscle fiber) are depleted while we train. They help us with focus, overall energy levels, attention, motivation and of course muscle contractions! Sleep is the only thing that allows your body to produce and recover these chemicals in your brain! This tells us sleep and recovery go hand in hand and if you enhance your sleep and recovery with sleep and recover supplements you will also enhance your workouts and results!!!
