Sleep - it's something that we all love, but that most of us proooobably aren't getting enough of. And that's a HUGE detriment not just to our overall health, but to our performance and body composition. In today's show, we're talking sleep. More specifically, we're talking:
-How poor sleep may negatively impact fat loss,
-How poor sleep may potentially be catabolic (muscle-wasting),
-How poor sleep may promote body fat gain,
-Creating a nighttime routine that works for you and WHY you should have one,
-Supplements that help with sleep quality/falling asleep,
-The best environment for sleep,

Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.
My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at foursigmatic.com/emdunc.
