Being a parent is full on fun with a huge dose of FATIGUE thrown in for good measure and with that in mind, I have recently been celebrating little victories with Benenox. As a mum, I have to celebrate ALL victories, however big or little they are, because lets face it, it’s one of the only ways to stay sane during parenthood. The little victories in the Rutherford household vary, anything from ensuring the boys have brushed their teeth in the morning, remembering to pick up the milk before getting home, to getting homework done in time or making it through a weekend without a tantrum! With this in mind, I got asked to try out natural sleep supplement Benenox. Benenox Overnight Recharge is a combination of honey, Sustamine® and Vitamin B6, which, when taken before bed, supplements your body’s stored energy levels to support good quality sleep, leaving you feeling fully recharged and ready to take on the day ahead. Sounds like magic right?
Harry’s now 9 years old and in these last 9 years, two children later, I can safely say sleep never really is the same as it was before having children. If it isn’t broken sleep filled with night feeds, toilet trips, night terrors or lost dummies, then it’s sleepless nights worrying about the life-balance technique and I’m sure the teenage years aren’t going to be any better. Ive never taken a supplement before but if this was going to do anything to help me feel ZING in the morning then I was more than willing to try it. The key natural ingredients are;
Honey- well known for its health benefits and its mix of natural sugars is believed to help boost glycogen stores in the liver to use during the night.
Sustamine®- a combination of two amino acids, L-Alanine and L-Glutamine, which help the liver to store glycogen by slowing absorption of honey in the stomach.
Vitamin B6- shown to reduce tiredness and fatigue while supporting psychological function, helping you feel more energised so you can perform at your best.
Ive been taking 15ml of Benenox before bedtime for a week now and can honestly say I have noticed an improved ‘me’ in the mornings. Ive not morphed into an adrenaline-fuelled superhero, but I definitely do feel recharged and less tired, which is exactly what I had hoped for. If I’ve not had the best night’s sleep then I can safely say I am pretty useless the following day and if I’m a grump then almost certainly the children follow in suite.
