  • Features and Benefits

    Vital Rest combines four effective, clinically-researched ingredients for restful, refreshing sleep and a calm, relaxed state of mind: Sensoril®/Withania somnifera extract, Passion Flower, Holy Basil and Suntheanine® L-theanine.*

    Vital Rest- A Comprehensive Chris Kilham Formula for Restful Sleep

    Designed by Chris Kilham†, the Medicine Hunter, Vital Rest is a total formula for restful sleep. It works in two ways to help you get the genuinely good night's rest you want and need. Vital Rest starts by helping you get ready to fall asleep, with ingredients that promote relaxation and calmness. One of the secrets of Vital Rest is its ability to help you unwind and release the worries and stresses of your busy day. Secondly, as Chris Kilham explains, Vital Rest helps improve the quality of your sleep by carrying you through the necessary sleep stages needed for healthy, adequate rest.*

    This unique sleep formula features three soothing, stress-fighting, sleep-promoting botanicals and one calming, relaxing amino acid.*

    Sensoril® the 5,000 Year-Old Herb for Modern Day Stress Relief*

    Sensoril® is a multi-patented, standardized extract of Withania somnifera, an herb known world-wide by its traditional name, Ashwagandha. As demonstrated in a randomized, double-blind placebo controlled study, Sensoril's stress-reducing effect helps you relax in preparation for a good night's sleep. Ashwagandha is also called "Indian Ginseng", because like Ginseng, it functions as an "adaptogen," an herb that helps the body adapt to stress. Subjects in the clinical trial reported a number of benefits, including improved energy, focus and concentration along with more calmness and relaxation.

    How does it work? Ashwagandha contains a group of compounds called "withanolides" that normalize stress hormones in the body, a fact that Chris emphasizes in his presentations when describing its sleep-enhancing benefits.

    Passion Flower-a Traditional Relaxing Herb*

    Passion Flower has a well-established usage as a relaxing herb that is recognized by authorities on herbal therapy such as the German Commission E. The British Herbal Compendium lists Passion Flower has effective for sleep, relaxation and stress-reduction. Passion Flower's soothing, calming ability has been documented in human studies. In one double-blind trial, Passion flower worked as well as a medication for relaxation and actually helped subjects perform better on the job. Another study was conducted on people preparing for surgery—certainly among the most stressful events we can experience in a lifetime. Compared to those given a placebo, subjects who took Passion Flower ninety minutes prior to surgery had significantly better scores on tests designed to measure feelings of ease and calmness.

    Suntheanine® -- the Relaxing Amino Acid Found in Green Tea

    L-Theanine, an amino acid found in Green tea also promotes calmness of mind, leading scientists to conclude that L-theanine is responsible for the relaxation people often experience from drinking Green tea.* Suntheanine®, while not extracted from Green tea itself, is produced by a special patented process that mimics the formation of L-theanine in Green tea, yielding 100 percent pure L-theanine. Suntheanine® L-Theanine (which contains no caffeine) has been tested in exclusive clinical research showing that it stimulates alpha wave activity in the brain.* When our brains are in the "alpha state" as it is called, we are calm, relaxed and at ease, yet more mentally alert at the same time. Completely safe and free of side-effects, affirmed by the experts as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe), Suntheanine® L-Theanine promotes concentration and daytime alertness. Taken in the evening, it helps reduce stress and prepare you for sleep by helping the mind relax and let go of the stress of a busy day.* An interesting study conducted on Suntheanine found that subjects taking it before bedtime woke up feeling "more refreshed". For this reason another unique benefit of the VitalRest formula is its ability to support a feeling of refreshed awakening upon waking in the morning.*

    Holy Basil—A Chris Kilham Herbal Favorite for Relaxation and Stress Relief

    A member of the mint family, Holy Basil is one of Chris Kilham's favorite herbs. As Chris points out, Holy Basil is appreciated around the world as an adaptogenic botanical that soothes the body, mind and spirit. As shown in several studies that looked at how it works, Holy Basil— like Ashwagandha—helps normalize levels of stress hormones. Improvements in mental clarity and mood have also been observed.*
