We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep. Getting around eight hours a night dramatically improves our overall mental and physical wellbeing, but with one in three of us suffering from poor sleep, it’s clear that not everyone is getting the rest they need.

How can Kollo liquid collagen help with sleep?
It’s all down to the glycine, which is one of the key amino acids in collagen. It is critical in maintaining the cardiovascular, cognitive, and metabolic health of the body, and works as a protein builder.
Glycine decreases our core body temperature by increasing blood flow to the body’s extremities. This may inhibit muscle activity during REM sleep, resulting in a more restorative rest. Studies have also shown that when our body is abundant in glycine, our overall quality of sleep is significantly better and we can drop with more ease into the deep, slow wave sleep that we all need.
Glycine also increases our serotonin levels. Serotonin is critical for sleep in a number of ways: notably, it is required to make the sleep hormone melatonin, but it also helps to maintain healthy circadian rhythms, thereby contributing to better sleep.
If you experience insomnia, glycine is particularly good news, as it has been shown to significantly improve fatigue and daytime sleepiness. It also helps to alleviate the symptoms of sleep deprivation, such as anxiety and energy levels, which will in turn lead to a better night’s rest.
