Sleep – One of my favourite pass times, because it’s a time machine towards breakfast, an exciting new day, the chance to fully relax and recover. Well, we all know that sleep is an important factor in all of our lives but if you find it hard to drift off to sleep or wake up during the night, it can become a time that you dread.
You might remember my post, about “Things that keep me awake at night” and relate to the fact that a bad night’s sleep, does not equal a happy or productive person. So, when Swedish-based company, WellBeMed, got in contact to suggest that they may have the answer to a more relaxed bedtime routine. My interest peaked the most when I realised a better routine could be found in the form of their recently launched WellBeSleep® Bar.
Based on research from Lund University, WellBeMed have developed the WellBeSleep® products which is a range of tasty products to savour before bedtime. The products are innovative in format, beautifully packaged, delicious and made for individuals who sometimes experience difficulties falling asleep.
“We wanted to create healthy, well-documented products that can help against lifestyle-related health problems. Both WellBeSleep® products were developed with the aim of becoming a recurring part of people’s evening bedtime routines. And using one of nature’s own resources, lemon balm, we were able to create delicious products that help people wind down before bedtime,” says Victoria Lagnevik, Managing Director at WellBeMed.
The WellBeSleep® shots (which are fruity and absolutely delicious) and the WellBeSleep® dark chocolate/oat bar all contain the ingredient of lemon balm. Which is a herb that has been used over the centuries for its calming effect so helps to contribute to better rest. To be honest, I won’t pretend that anything sweet, fruity and/or involving chocolate isn’t going to be a massive winner in my book. But if it helps sleep too? Even better!
“Our WellBeSleep® shots mix lemon balm with hops to create the best possible conditions for falling asleep with ease and in addition, our WellBeSleep® Bar consists of oats and oat fiber that also affect your health in a positive way. We recommend that you drink or eat the WellBeSleep® products thirty minutes before you go to sleep. This allows the lemon balm to help relax the mind and body

If you want to track down these products and give them a try, please note that both products will be available from Ocado from 24th May 2021.
