Thanks to Truly supplements for sponsoring today's discussion. As always, the opinions are my own.
I have a confession to make. I stopped dreaming when we were in the hospital which if you Google that, it's not a good thing. You need REM sleep. Unfortunately, our sleep was so interrupted by illness, beeping machines and nurses coming in that I don't think I really got any deep sleep. After we got out of the hospital, all I could think about was getting caught up. Sadly, I still don't feel like I have and it's two months later.
Last night, I had lots of dreams which is a great thing because it means I'm finally getting some much needed sleep. What am I doing differently? I've added a Melatonin supplement at night and it seems to be working. Unlike most supplements that you can take, Truly supplements aren't pills or capsules. They're trubites™ made with 100% organic, fair trade chocolate (that in itself was a selling point for me. Any time I can have a treat, I'm in). If you didn't know, chocolate is filled with antioxidants that may help lower blood pressure. It can also lower bad cholesterol and reduce insulin resistance. So, while I'm taking a supplement to help me sleep, I'm also helping my entire body.

Since I've started to dream again, I'm totally sold on the Melatonin. And, at my last physical, my bad cholesterol was a little high so maybe the chocolate will help that was well. Right now, I'm just thrilled to be getting REM sleep again. Maybe now I'll feel rested again.
