National Sleep Awareness Week With Benenox

Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone had a great Easter Weekend. I’m feeling refreshed after a staycation and plenty of SLEEP. I mean is there a better feeling of NOT setting your alarm for the next day?!

I’ve spoken a lot about sleep on here and quite rightly so too as it is so important! It was Sleep Awareness Week 11 – 17th March and to help support the awareness I was sent a parcel of sleep goodies on behalf of Benenox Overnight Recharge! Benenox is a supplement which supports a more restful nightโ€™s sleep and better energy levels the next day.

The luxurious gold box of goodies I received was amazing and very exciting. Inside was a lavender candle, a space mask, mug and some night-time tea, alongside some Benenox!

The goodies could not have come at a better time as that week I was feeling very run down, lethargic and tired. I couldn’t wait to try each product to see whether it would positively impact on my sleeping pattern.

I don’t sleep terribly, but I do wake up a lot. Getting a Fitbit really opened my eyes to how much a light and restless sleeper I am. I was keen to try Benexox especially since after doing my research into the supplement. I learnt that it’s a combination of honey, Sustamine and Vitamin B6, which, when taken before bed, supplements your bodyโ€™s stored energy levels to support good quality sleep, leaving you feeling fully recharged and ready to take on the day ahead.

The blend of ingredients in Benenox Overnight Recharge helps to:

  • Reduce tiredness and fatigue
  • Support your mental function
  • Maintain normal energy production

Honey is well known for its health benefits and its mix of natural sugars is believed to help boost glycogen stores in the liver to use during the night.

Sustamine is a combination of two amino acids, L-Alanine and L-Glutamine, which help the liver to store glycogen by slowing absorption of honey in the stomach.

Vitamin B6 has been shown to reduce tiredness and fatigue while supporting psychological function, helping you feel more energised so you can perform at your best.

I didn’t know which product to try first so I tried them all on the first night. I was desperate for a good nights sleep after feeling so low… being a woman is hard y’know.

I put the lavender candle on as I was preparing to get into bed. I wanted to ensure the essence was spread around my room for when it was finally time to hit the hay.

I’ve read many times that taking a warm bath before bed really helps the body unwind so I always try and take a bath later in the evening, so that’s what I did and then I used the space mask. The space mask was gorgeous on my skin, the lavender was so strong! In case you’re wondering why everything has lavender in this pack well basically researcher over the years has found that lavender increased slow-wave sleep, the very deep slumber in which the heartbeat slows and muscles relax.

After my soothing hot bath and mask, I made my self a cup of sleep tea! The tea is a refreshing infusion of chamomile, lavender and other natural herbs enhanced with natural orange flavouring. It tastes amazing!

And then, it was time try the Benenox! You are instructed to take 15ml of Benenox before bedtime, neat or diluted with hot water. I took it straight from the bottle and didn’t mind the taste at all. I lay down and entered my dreams!

I did wake up, as usual, the first night for the toilet but I didn’t expect it to work miraculously after one swig! I did, however, have a good eight hours sleep and according to my Fitbit was less restless. I woke up feeling a lot better!

I’ve been using Benenox for the last three weeks now and have definitely seen a difference in my sleep. The quality of my sleep has massively improved and the length of my sleep has increased. I genuinely really impressed.

I’ve tried magnesium in the past and given up on it after a while because of inconsistent results whereas Benenox has consistently helped improved my sleep. It’s been easy to measure and have visibility on my improvements via my Fitbit too.

I’m a 100% going to continue using Benenox and would definitely recommend it to anyone struggling to get their sleeping routine in order!

    I’m such a restless sleeper and it doesn’t help having a cosleeping toddler but I can only imagine how many times I wake up in the night, is probably scary. This seems like a great product to use.
