Trouble Sleeping During Quarantine? This Belo Immunity Kit Supplement Can Help

And it’s available at the Belo Shop!

Trouble Sleeping During Quarantine This Belo Immunity Kit Supplement Can Help

A good amount of sleep comes with a slew of health benefits: increased cell turnover and regeneration, reduced inflammation, and improved cognitive function, among other things. Being under quarantine, however, can prove to be extremely stressful, especially if you’re worried about the safety of your children or how you’ll continue to do your job despite the circumstances. Studies have shown that increased anxiety or depressive episodes⁠—in this case, caused by COVID-19 worries⁠—can lead to disturbed or irregular sleep patterns

Fortunately, our team that developed the Formula VB Immunity Booster Kit factored sleep difficulty as a factor in reduced immunity. That’s why they added a melatonin supplement as part of the kit: this naturally-occurring hormone is responsible for regulating sleep-wake cycles. It’s produced by your pineal gland, a pea-sized gland that can be found in your brain. 

Here’s how it works. “When the sun goes down and darkness occurs, the pineal is ‘turned on’ …and begins to actively produce melatonin, which is released into the blood. Usually, this occurs around 9 pm. As a result, melatonin levels in the blood rise sharply and you begin to feel less alert. Sleep becomes more inviting,” explains the National Sleep Foundation.

So how can you assure yourself of a good night’s sleep during these difficult times? 

 “As we get older, we lose melatonin, so we don’t sleep well at night. That’s the only time our body can regenerate and rejuvenate, so we really have to sleep well. But guess what? Melatonin really helps with immunity, [and] it’s anti-inflammatory. It’s important to take this usually about 30 minute to 1 hour before we want to sleep,” recommends Dr. Vicki Belo. 

Melatonin is just one of the fantastic supplements you get when you purchase a Formula VB Immunity Booster Kit. Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, and Zinc Picolinate, you can use these along with melatonin to help your body build a defense system against respiratory infections, inflammation, and flu-like symptoms! Get it here at the Belo Shop.

(SAFETY PRECAUTION: Keep products out of the reach of children. It is recommended to consult your doctor before taking any supplements if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have other pre-existing conditions, or known allergic reactions.)
