BSc Hydroxyburn Sleep Rx is a wholistic blend of herbal medicines and nutrients, designed to assist with poor sleeping habits, exercise recovery and stress.

Zizyphus is able to gently calm and soothe, assisting with relaxation and quality sleep.
The proprietary extract of Melissa officinalis (Bluenesse) leaf is a potent herb for the management of stress and sleep disorders. A study published in 2011 indicated that it was effective at reducing incidences of anxiety1. Administration of the herbal medicine also led to a 42% reduction of insomnia.
Kava root is a Fijian herb that has a potent GABA-like effect in the brain. GABA is the most powerful natural brain-chemical, and has the ability to slow neuronal firing, which assists with relaxation. Kava root has been studied for decades now through modern scientific methods, with some research indicating that it can be helpful for the management of anxiety2. Kava may assist with stress and anxiety-related sleeplessness.
Exercise can place great demands on the body, affecting us physically, mentally, and sometimes even emotionally. When the exercise or competition is strenuous, we produce larger amounts of stress hormones, like cortisol. Though the exercise we engage in may be supportive of our health-and enjoyable-extra cortisol hanging around for too long once we finish is not necessarily a good thing. Though cortisol assists with adaptation to stress, it is a catabolic hormone. Research show that aerobic exercise at or over 60% VO2 increases cortisol levels significantly3.
This is where BSc Hydroxyburn Sleep Rx steps into the biological equation. After a heavy training session the herbal extracts in this product may assist with calming the nervous system and relaxing the mind, reducing HPA axis activation and cortisol secretions. This means you can bounce back faster after exercise and recovery will be supported, ensuring that your next session is met with more spring in your step.
