There is one and only one purpose for sleep.
To replenish the neurotransmitters that you used up throughout the course of the day.
What are neurotransmitters?
Neurotransmitters are liquid chemicals that allow electrical impulses to move across one brain cell to another brain cell, as well as to send signals throughout your entire body to every cell in your body. Your brain has 100 billion brain cells, called neurons. Amazingly, none of them are connected to each other. There are huge spaces, called synapses, between all your neurons.
Your brain functions through electricity flowing across your brain’s cells. Tens of millions of brain cells are involved in nearly every electrical impulse, happening every second at lightning speed.
So how does an electrical impulse “hop” from one brain cell to another? Actually, it cannot “hop”. It uses neurotransmitters as a conduit for the electrical impulse. When an electrical impulse comes to a brain cell that has no neurotransmitters connecting it to another brain cell, the electrical impulse stops.
The more neurotransmitters, the more brain function. The less neurotransmitters, the less brain function. If your brain had no neurotransmitters, you would be dead.
Without neurotransmitters you have no brain function. Believe it or not, your brain controls everything that goes on in your body. The 75 trillions cells that make up your physical body are constantly signaling your brain. And your brain is constantly signaling them.
So what does sleep have to do with this?
You have four dimensions of sleep. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta sleep. During the deep dimensions of sleep, your brain goes into a “replenish mode”. Your brain utilizes amino acids and a plethora of other substances to make neurotransmitters. This is to replace the neurotransmitters that have been used up throughout the course of your day. This is when the various neurotransmitters are manufactured and replenished in your brain.
You spend on average around two hours every night in each dimension of sleep. In the first two dimensions of sleep, no neurotransmitters are replenished. This is your brain basically going from consciousness to unconsciousness.
It is in the two deep dimensions of sleep in which neurotransmitters are made and replenished in the brain. A couple hours in each Gamma and Delta sleep are when your neurotransmitters are manufactured in your brain. This replaces those that have been used up the previous day.
Have you ever had “one of those nights”? The dogs are barking, the sirens wail, you are too hot or too cold, your spouse is snoring or pulling on the covers, the baby is crying, there’s a cat fight in the backyard, you are worried about something, have something important you can’t stop thinking about, or any number of sleep disturbing things that can happen.
What happens on a night like that, is you were in and out of Alpha and Beta sleep all night (moving from consciousness to shallow sleep). You never spent much time in the deep dimensions of sleep and therefore did not replenish any (or very few) neurotransmitters. So you get up in the morning and feel worse than when you went to bed at night. You “drag your wagon” all day. You are grumpy, forgetful, easily agitated, have droopy eyelids, struggle to think clearly…
Here is one of the most important facts that you need to know, so pay careful attention to the following information. We call this “The Holy Grail of Sleep Information”.
Even if you got a “perfect” eight hours of sleep, it does NOT mean that you are going to be able to replenish all the neurotransmitters that you used up throughout the course of your day. You need BUILDING materials to replenish the neurotransmitters!
Neurotransmitters do not come from thin air. They are manufactured from nutrients. Therefore, if your brain does not have the PROPER KINDS of NUTRIENTS and the PROPER AMOUNTS of those NUTRIENTS, you will not be able to make enough neurotransmitters to replenish what you used up that day.
And what does it mean when this happens?
You are tired. You are grumpy or depressed or angry or moody or mentally not all there. You do not think clearly. You make mistakes. You forget things easily. You are not productive. And those are just the things that go wrong mentally.
Physically you are more prone to manifest illness. After all, when your lungs and liver and left toe signal your brain, it simply CANNOT analyze the information as well. (Ever use a REAL SLOW computer? One that drives you crazy? OK, that is what the rest of your body is thinking about your brain when you are lacking in neurotransmitters!)
So every system in your body, every organ, EVERY CELL suffers! What about the exact opposite?
What if you are able to not only replenish the neurotransmitters that you use up every day, but are able to add copious amounts of neurotransmitters to your brain?
Aha! Are you ready for the answer?
You would increase your intelligence, be more happy, have more mental energy, be able to multi-task, handle stress better, improve your overall health DRAMATICALLY in addition to a plethora of other mind-boggling benefits!
The PURPOSE of sleep is to replenish neurotransmitters!
The PRODUCTION of neurotransmitters is TWO-FOLD: Getting deep dimension sleep and having the building materials (nutrients) available to make the neurotransmitters.
This needs to be repeated again!
The PRODUCTION of neurotransmitters involves TWO IMPORTANT FACTORS: Getting enough deep dimension sleep AND supplying the building materials (nutrients) your brain needs.
Here is the AMAZING, nearly miraculous thing that Royal Velvet does:
It supplies your brain with EVERY building material needed to replenish EVERY neurotransmitter AND gets directly into the brain, past the blood-brain barrier in sufficient amounts when you take it a night right before bedtime!
There is NO other food supplement that is more efficient at supplying the brain than Royal Velvet. PERIOD!
AND Royal Velvet also helps you get into the deep dimensions of sleep quicker. Many, if not most of our clients report sleeping an hour or two less per night yet feeling better, more alert, and more mentally energetic throughout the day.
It is worth repeating:
Most people taking Royal Velvet sleep between one and two hours less per night yet feel as though they have slept for days, feeling bright-eyed and revitalized upon awakening.
Imagine having two hours more every day to do the things you never have time to do. This would be like giving you an extra month and a half every year. While the rest of the world is trying to get everything done in 365 days, you would have well over 400 days!
And on top of that, your mind would be clear and functioning optimally. You would be very productive, accomplishing tasks in much less time than it would normally take you.
Ideal sleep. It is one of the incredible benefits you receive when taking Royal Velvet!
