We’ve all been there- after lots of strain, we desperately want to de-stress and relax a bit, but nothing seems to help. In times like those, many reach for synthetic drugs that can be found in any pharmacy. Yet, each day more and more people turn to natural herbs and ingredients that could potentially have a greater and more positive impact on our body.
Natural… don’t you just love that word? At Grassroots Harvest, we love anything natural! That’s why if you search through our website, you’ll find that we offer the Legal Lean Sleep Aid syrup. If you are thinking about incorporating Legal Lean into your lifestyle, we’re here to resolve any dilemmas you might have about it.
What is Legal Lean Syrup?
Legal Lean is lean & clean, as the name may already suggest. It is a combination of natural ingredients that people have used for centuries for their holistic benefits. So, although Legal Lean may be somewhat recent on the market, the ingredients it contains are definitely not. Among the ingredients listed in their proprietary blend are chamomile extract, Valerian root, St. John’s Wort, skullcap, and kava kava.
Rather than leaving it at that, let’s take a look at each one of these plants and their advantages! It’s truly fascinating to think that such small, delicate plants would hold so many powerful benefits for our health!
The helpful properties of chamomile come from its flowers, which contain volatile oils (otherwise known as essential oils, which are very helpful for relieving discomfort), flavonoids, and the most important compound, apigenin. Apigenin ‘clings’ to the GABA receptors in our brain that appear to be helpful with stress and anxiety when the GABA chemical binds to them. When the apigenin binds to GABA receptors, it induces calm and relaxing sensations.
Similar to chamomile, valerian root also interacts with GABA receptors. It decelerates the breakdown of the GABA chemical, which in turn may be very helpful in promoting healthier and calmer sleep.
St. John’s Wort
The St. John’s Wort plant has been called ‘magical’ for quite some time now, and for good reason! It increases the levels of serotonin in the body, so it may work as a natural antidepressant. That is the reason why many doctors suggest avoiding St. John’s Wort when using actual antidepressants. Other than that, it may be helpful with stress and anxiety, mood swings, and sleep disorders.
Like its other plant friends, the skullcap is also very popular for what it offers. It holds a wide range of beneficial components that may help with sleep disorders, inflammation, anxiety, and other types of discomfort. However, there hasn’t been much scientific evidence behind the positive effects it has, which is why we cannot make any recommendations.
It’s not just the name that’s interesting in this plant! Kava kava is unique due to the main substance it contains, which is kavapyrone. This component may help promote feelings of happiness and tranquility, which is why our friends at Legal Lean use it in their syrup to help you feel calm and improve your mood.
Besides containing the above-mentioned ingredients, Legal Lean also contains essential vitamins in its blend, so it is the ultimate supplement for a healthy body. The four crucial vitamins it has are vitamin B3, B5, B6, and B12. You already know what follows – an in-depth explanation for each one of these!
B vitamins are crucial for maintaining the health and the energy levels of our cells. They are most commonly found in cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables, and other foods. They can also be taken as supplements, in combination with a healthy, balanced diet.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) helps convert food into energy, keeps us feeling satisfied and energized, and promotes digestion.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) helps keep our skin, eyes, and hair shiny and full of life!
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) fights infection and deficiencies of it may cause anemia, confusion, and depression.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) ensures that the brain and nervous system work correctly and healthily.
Whenever you have the option to choose a supplement made with natural ingredients, especially as many as Legal Lean has, we think it’s the way to go. At Grassroots Harvest we believe in the power of nature to potentially help many people.
