Love nature? Here's how you can harness her gifts to amplify yours…
If you're obsessed with outdoor adventures, there's a good chance your #1 purpose in life is to reach 'Flow', also called The Zone.. you know, that magical place where the time-space continuum is breached and suddenly you’re literally superhuman… leaping over boulders in a single bound, spidey-climbing up to the highest peaks, or riding the most gnarly waves with the grace of Silver Surfer?
If this describes you, you're also probably not the type to load up on heavy-hitting (often synthetic) ingredients just to hit the next performance marker. Rather, you thrive in the experience.
For a long time, the supplement space has focused solely on performance gains. But now there's a new player in town- one that lets botanicals take the lead for a gentler approach you can feel…
Introducing Flume… a new supplement brand for outdoor adventure lovers.
Flume has developed a unique line of botanically driven products designed to work in total harmony with your body to enhance the thrill of moving in nature. The system includes three separate products for pre-workout, post-workout, and sleep, and work together to support your body’s natural chemical ‘feel-good’ processes, paving the path to flow.
Drift: Sleep Botanicals
Flow state starts with feeling good in your body. Under-eye bags, cranky moods, and low energy from lack of sleep are enemies of flow. As athletes, the importance of sleep can’t be understated, yet for many of us, it’s the area we have the most difficulty with.
This is why Flume puts such a strong emphasis on enhancing flow state through better sleep.
A botanically-driven sleep supplement that hits all the right notes, Drift is a soothing blend of calming and adaptogenic plants (adaptogens are substances that are able to help the body resist all kinds of stress) with essential minerals from pristine ocean waters of Ireland. Formulated to help the body and mind drift off to sleep, while optimizing nightly restoration.
What’s in it?
Drift’s formula makes a perfect complement to their pre and post-workout drinks for enhancing flow state, BUT their sleep supplements can be taken as a stand-alone sleep aid to encourage restful sleep, better recovery and exceptional outdoor adventures. Here’s what’s included in the formula:
This calming adaptogen is one of the most revered plants in Ayurveda (India’s traditional system of medicine). Its Latin name, Withania somniferia, gives a nod to both its strength-enhancing and sleep-promoting properties. Flume’s organic Ashwagandha extract is made from both the roots and leaves of the plant for optimal potency and has been shown in a clinical study to reduce occasional stress and sleeplessness, soothe muscles and joints, and support daytime energy and concentration.*
A sleeping beauty at heart, California Poppy tucks itself in at nighttime, a natural plant behavior known as nyctinasty (nik-tin-as-tee) that enhances its survival. The official state flower of California is one of the oldest North American solutions for sleeplessness and stress. Traditionally, California Poppy was said to be particularly effective when sleep disturbances were due to musculoskeletal pain or injury. Scientists attribute its impressive influence on mind and body to a class of compounds called alkaloids.
The stuff post-adventure dreams are made of. The female flowers (or strobiles) of the Hops plant are not just valued by beer brewers - practitioners of traditional medicine have used the plant for mood, relaxation and sleep benefits for hundreds of years. Preclinical studies suggest that hops exerts its calming effects by fine-tuning the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain, namely GABA, serotonin and melatonin, which affects mood and sleep.
The ocean is a source of peace and serenity; it’s also a source of bioavailable magnesium. Magnesium is an essential mineral for the body involved in over 300 chemical reactions, including those that regulate muscle function, stress and mood. Preclinical studies suggest it may play a role in supporting healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep and relaxation. Our magnesium is derived from a pristine ocean water source that provides 72 additional trace minerals to nourish your body and mind at nighttime.
Take 2 capsules 30-60 minutes before bed.
