Food is a source of energy, but have you ever used it as a form of relaxation? Our lavender and vanilla-infused Calm Bars have eight grams of protein and nine grams of fiber along with plenty of nonaddictive sleep-inducing ingredients, making them the perfect guilt-free bedtime snack. With it being fully vegan and keto, munch on one before you get ready for bed to help you get a sounder sleep via many wholesome ingredients, notably glycine, GABA, L-theanine, lavender oil, and vitamin D2.
Glycine is an amino acid, which is a building block of protein that has many positive side effects. Body Nutrition says that glycine benefits include improving sleep quality, strengthening joints and bones, and treatment of mental health disorders. Body Nutrition cites a study on nineteen women with trouble sleeping who were divided into two groups, one of which took three grams of glycine within an hour of going to bed. The other group used a placebo. The ones who took glycine said they felt “very lively,” “extremely peppy,” “very refreshed” and “clear-headed after getting up in the morning.” Body Nutrition also reports that consuming glycine in addition to medication reduces schizophrenia symptoms. People with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) received similar results when they took both glycine and their medications. The glycine amino acid is only one of the sleep-enhancing ingredients in our Calm Bars.
Our bar contains gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Before you freak out about the long name, hear us out. GABA is a neurotransmitter that reduces anxiety and is naturally in your body It can be taken orally; in other words, it’s safe. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) conducted a study of eight people crossing a bridge. All eight subjects were afraid of heights and had their immunoglobulin A (IgA)––a disease-fighting antibody––measured. The four people who orally ingested GABA had higher IgA levels than those who took a placebo medicine. In addition to having an impact on relaxation, the NCBI also acknowledges that GABA increases immunity while decreasing the symptoms of stress-related ailments. Don’t think that the stress-fighting ingredients end here; our Calm Bar has other relaxing elements.
Calm Bars are rich in protein and its building blocks. Another amino acid we add to our bars is L-theanine, which is another natural ingredient that lowers stress and anxiety. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC at Chapel Hill) discusses effects of L-theanine and caffeine on test performance and says that students who took 200mg of L-theanine had lower heart rates than those who used a placebo before their exams. According to Amino Acid Studies, their stress levels noticeably decreased is because L-theanine helps your body produce GABA. Not only do calm bars have health benefits, they also have flavor.
We’ve all heard that lavender helps with sleep, and it smells amazing, but did you know it adds a unique flavor to some recipes? Our Calm Bars combine the herby taste of lavender with the sweet taste of vanilla. This flavor combo is tasty, and like the previous bar ingredients, it helps you chill out. Organic Facts says that lavender benefits include reducing migraine symptoms, prevention of urinary disorders, improved digestion, and potentially stopping cancer. Our bars have amino acids and taste good, but they also contain vitamins.
Our Calm Bars contain vitamin d2 (also called ergocalciferol). Vitamin D2 aids in the absorption of calcium, a mineral needed for bone strength. The University of Michigan (U of M) states that one of the vitamin’s many uses include treating rickets, a condition that weakens the bones and comes from a lack of vitamin D. Vitamin D2 is also useful for increasing blood phosphate and treating hypoparathyroidism, which U of M defines as “decreased functioning of the parathyroid glands.” By no means are we saying that our product will cure any illnesses, mental or physical. However, a Calm Bar is a step in the right direction toward a healthier lifestyle.
Our bar tastes just as great as it works and with a box of twelve starting at $36.00, the nutrition and sleep benefits will have the bars paying for themselves. Calm bars are vegan, keto, and contain no soy, because we believe everyone should get to enjoy a high protein snack just before bed. When you buy Calm Bars, you don’t only support yourself with equipment for a better lifestyle, you also support the Vibe Infusion Charity Fund, a fund dedicated to helping children, animals, veterans, disease treatment and prevention, and the planet via a portion of proceeds from each purchase. So do good for yourself, and do better for others.
