From Counting Sheep to Sipping Cocoa: 6 Ways RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa Helps You Fall Asleep

I actually couldn’t keep my eyes open after I finished this cup of cocoa and had to go right to bed.” - Donna H.

A delicious evening luxury with blissful benefits? It’s just a sip away.

1. Relax Before Bed With Reishi

1. Relax before bed with Reishi

Stressed from the day? Sit back and relax, sip, and let Reishi work its magic, calming your nervous system down and setting you up for a peaceful night's sleep.

Reishi has a long-documented history of stress-busting. For thousands of years, it’s been revered in Eastern traditions for its calming abilities, which it owes to Triterpenes. They help calm your “fight or flight” response, slowing your heart rate and relaxing your muscles. 

Restful sleep starts with what you have before bed. And nothing gets you into the snoozing zone better than a steaming mug of delicious RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa!

2. Switch Off Your Busy Brain With L-Theanine

There are nights when we ALL wish we had the magic “off switch” for our busy brains (without involving medications or meditations, that is.) 

Now we’ve got one! A steamy, dreamy cup of RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa

RYZE Hot Cocoa contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that’s all about calming you down and beating any pre-sleep jitters left over from the day. 

L-Theanine does this by triggering the release of neurotransmitters in your brain, such as GABA (or gamma-aminobutyric acid) which is involved in mood regulation and can have a calming effect, ensuring you get the desired sleep you deserve.

3. Slide Into Sweet Dreams With This Amino Acid

Glycine is another express ticket to better sleep that you’ll find in RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa. Though it may be microscopic, it packs a sleepy punch!

The Glycine in RYZE lowers your body temperature, which is a natural signal to your brain that it's time to wind down. This cooling effect makes it easier for you to drift off into sleep. 

Glycine has also been shown to elevate serotonin, a neurotransmitter which plays a key role in your ability to get quality sleep.

4. Sipping Cocoa Replaces Counting Sheep

Think cacao and sleep don't mix because of caffeine? Understandable, but it’s a common misconception! The cacao in RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa actually aids in falling asleep.

That’s because cacao is full of phenethylamine. This organic compound boosts your mood and gets those feel-good endorphins flowing, making slipping off into dreamland effortless.. 

Cacao also contains magnesium and serotonin, the former of which helps your muscles relax, and the latter of which is vital to keeping the body’s sleep-wake schedule in a healthy balance.

5. Chicory Root Reduces Stomach Stress Before Bedtime

It’s impossible to fall asleep when an overactive stomach has you running to the bathroom. RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa helps regulate your digestion with Chicory root so that you’re never kept awake with the grumbles again or get woken up needing to sprint to the toilet. 

Chicory root contains Inulin, a prebiotic that lives in the bowels and feeds the beneficial bacteria. Inulin keeps your gut in check, which balances your digestive biome.

So, sipping RYZE Hot cocoa before bed means a more regular “go” come morning, which means a less angry stomach by the time you’re winding down for some shut-eye.

6. Melatonin Melts Away The Stress Of The Day

6. Melatonin melts away the stress of the day

You might have heard a lot about melatonin and its role in sleep thanks to supplements, or maybe you’ve even tried some. But here’s the thing - most supplements on the market today add an alarmingly high amount of it. Too high a dose of melatonin can actually cause nightmares among a whole host of other side effects, contributing to poorer sleep.

Melatonin is a hormone your body makes to regulate your sleep-wake cycle. As the light dims in the evening, your body produces more melatonin, signaling that it's time to slow down and prepare for sleep.

RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa is carefully formulated with science in mind to contain the perfect amount of melatonin conducive to winding down from a stressful day and transitioning into bedtime mode.

Thousands of happy people agree: 

RYZE Mushroom Hot Cocoa is key to the 

perfect evening routine.

Silky smooth texture and amazing flavor.

“I didn’t know what to expect, I mean I have tried three different Ryze products and I love it. But this one, it is REALLY GREAT! Silky smooth texture and amazing flavor. Most importantly, after about 20-30 mins after I had the drink, I was soooo sleepy! I was thinking why all the sudden I felt sleepy (I usually go to bed around 11:30 but I already felt tired at 10:30!) then I remembered it was the hot chocolate. Really impressive! Will definitely reorder and recommend it to friends.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Kate B.


I fall asleep without trouble…

“The cocoa was just what I needed! I’ve had a lot of trouble with my sleep over the last 10 years and have taken all kinds of sleep aids but this mushroom cocoa does the trick for me. I fall asleep without trouble and when I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I can easily fall back to sleep, plus, it’s delicious! I make mine with the mushroom vanilla creamer and a dash of my favorite Soam vanilla oat creamer.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Anna W.

…all I can say is wow!

“I've been using it this week and all I can say is wow! I'm able to sleep better and longer than I have ever before. I wake up non groggy and full of energy (without the jitters). This product has really helped me, I've been a light sleeper for years and it's been so hard to get deep REM sleep. This product is way better than taking pills to help, it's a game changer!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Peter T.

I’ll never use anything else to help with my sleep.

“Not only does this cocoa taste yummy, it's amazing at relaxing you at bedtime. I was a long time user of melatonin pills to help with my sleep but didn’t like the unusual dreams it caused and I still wasn’t sleeping all night long. Now I have a cup of Ryze cocoa just before I go to sleep and within a minute of finishing my drink I’m relaxed and droopy eyed, the next thing I know it’s morning and I feel so rested and refreshed with no side affects whatsoever…just a great nights sleep. I’ll never use anything else to help with my sleep.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Dominic J.

…evening warming indulgence with blissful benefits. 

“I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was more than pleasantly surprised! The taste is delicious and not overly sweet at all. That being said, you could certainly add more sweetness if you wanted. I made mine as the package recommended and frothed it with coconut milk - delish! Now for the best part….I was literally feeling relaxed and sleepy within 20-30 minutes of drinking it and slept great all night. This is a must try for anyone looking for a delightful little evening warming indulgence with blissful benefits.🥰😴”
