How I am keeping in balance this holiday season! Mood Support and Restful Sleep! #PureInfluencer #PureAmbassador

*Supplement suggestions are products that are currently working for me, please check with your doctor before starting on any supplements if you are taking medication. Your doctor or pharmacist will be able to let you know if they play nicely together! This is NOT medical advice!*

I have been 'taking my vitamins' daily since childhood. I have tried an incredibly vast amount of brands and supplement types. As we age our needs change in so many ways and that includes supplements.

I am not going to lie, I am a lifelong insomniac for a wide variety of reasons. Stress, not being able to shut off my mind and now because of chronic pain issues. It's no fun. The stress from chronic pain often affects my mood and I decided to revisit an old friend.

When I was in College, and working three part time jobs to put myself through school,  stress and lack of sleep often left me grumpy and without a lot of 'get up and go'. I tried a supplement that was recommended for Mood Support called SAMe. It was literally life changing. But also very expensive and after a few months I had to drop it from my rotation.

2022 has been a long year filled with more stress than I have time to list in one post, which made me wonder if it was time to pick up taking SAMe daily again, and I am so glad I did!

Regulating Your Days:

I am regulating my days and nights with two hero products from Pure Encapsulations! For Mood Support and finding my 'get up and go' again, I am taking SAMe (or S-Adenosylmethionine), it's list of benefits include:

- Supports cognitive and liver function (if you are a chronic pain warrior like me you know many of your meds are not the greatest for your liver)

- Helps maintain joint comfort (this another huge benefit for me, I experience a great deal of joint pain with RA - Rheumatoid Arthritis)

- Encourages healthy cell growth and positive mood (this one I can say with certainty is very much true for me!)

- Supports glutatione production, a powerful antioxidant produced in the body to protect cells

The 'Without it' Test: I like to test a supplement long enough to know if it is making a difference and for me the proof is in the pudding when I feel a huge difference without it. This supplement passes both tests for me!

Regulating your Nights:

If you are tired of tossing and turning, then Pure Encapsulations Melatonin-SR will become your hero product from their line. I have tried a wide variety of Melatonin products (many whose mg amount was much higher) and most have fallen short for me and turned out to be very expensive duds. While I have had luck with some CBD based sleep products I knew that for travel I wanted something without it. I also wanted something more cost effective, and I found it with Melatonin-SR, its benefits include:

- MicroActive Melatonin for sustained 6-hour support (I can assure you this is true, it's always been way after 6 hours that I wake up after taking this!)

- Facilitates the onset of sleep as well as sleep efficiency (I do fall asleep faster and get a better quality of rest with these and NO hangover feeling/grogginess the next day like with sleeping pills.)

- Helps augment the natural functioning of the pineal gland which secretes melatonin, which plays a role in the body's internal clock


I fully intend on trying as many Pure Encapsulations products as I can. I can see why PURE are the most recommended brand by healthcare professionals. Pure Encapsulations are free from unnecessary additives and many common allergens. 

What you won't find in Pure Encapsulations: Wheat, Soy, Dairy, Eggs, Gluten, Coatings and Shellacs, Tree nuts or peanuts, Artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, GMOs, unnecessary binders, fillers or preservatives, trans fat & hydrogenated oils.

SAMe and Melatonin-SR will be in constant stock in my Supplement Supply Drawer! And I can't wait to try out other amazing supplements from Pure Encapsulations.
