In my last post (sorry it’s been awhile!) I opened up about my battle with anxiety off and on over the years. One of the side effects of living with an anxiety disorder is periods of severe insomnia. As we know, sleep is super important to function like a normal adult. It’s especially important for athletes who want to perform at their best.
I’ve tried various things to help me get a good nights rest. Everything from shutting off electronics 30 minutes prior to bed to playing peaceful music, but during this period of intense training, I need more to insure I get that quality sleep which is why I was excited to give ORB Wellness Sleep Complex a try.
ORB Wellness is different from other sleep aid supplements in that it delivers essential nutrients, minerals, and compounds via a dual delivery system and an exclusive time-release technology.
It provides Melatonin, Valerian and essential oils to help you fall asleep and stay asleep and then vitamin B-12 via time-release technology to provide energy support when you wake up. No more groggy feeling you get from other sleep supplements.
I’ve been taking ORB Wellness nightly about 30 minutes before going to bed for the past couple weeks and have definitely noticed a difference in not only how quickly I fall asleep, but how much more RELAXED I feel when closing my eyes after hitting the pillow. I had no idea just how tense I was in bed until I wasn’t anymore.
I’ve been tracking my sleep for the last month or so via my Garmin watch. I average about 7-8 hours a night (although this last week was 6 due to being up with a sick toddler). My average time “awake” has gone down. Meaning the amount of time it takes to fall asleep has improved and less waking up in the middle of the night.
Before starting ORB Wellness Sleep Complex:
After starting it:
It’s still too early to judge the long term benefits and it’s not recommended to take this supplement continuously for more than 8 weeks at a time. I will continue to take ORB Wellness for a few more weeks through my training for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships and keep you all posted on any developments/improvements with my sleep patterns and if it’s affected my training/racing.
If you are interested in trying it for yourself, ORB’s Sleep Complex is available online for 39.99 or at your local Costco for 28.99. If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
