A perfect diet and a consistent daily movement training routine are all for nothing if you have poor sleep. When you fall into deep REM sleep your body starts releasing powerful fat-burning growth factors that heal your body including rebuilding muscle, connective tissue, and skin cells.

  • Supplement with Magnesium 30 minutes before bed. Magnesium is a mineral that is one of the catalysts for the chemical reaction that stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the “rest, digest and relax” part of our autonomic nervous system.
