As we age our body's supplies of collagen decrease, which leads to our sleep cycles shortening. Most of the bodies essential repair work is done at night while we are sleeping. If the repair phase does not have sufficient material, in the form of collagen, to do the required repair the body has to work harder to repair the body which leads to disrupted sleep.
Sleep is divided into several phases. The first phase, known as the alpha phase, is when our body searches for available collagen and nutrients which it uses to repair and regenerate the body. In phase two and three the body rests and recovers from the days activities. The sleep cycle repeats itself throughout the night. The longer the body spends in the alpha phase, the less rest and recovery the body is able to do.
By supplementing with Genacol® the body has sufficient supplies and is able to work more efficiently in the alpha phase leading to longer periods within phase two and three which means you sleep better and wake up feeling more refreshed in the morning.
