Approximately 70 million Americans suffer from undiagnosed sleep disorders. To cope with their insomnia, many people turn to sleep aids at night, though not all of them are safe. One study showed that prescription medications increase the risk of certain diseases and even death. Another stated that sleep medications increase the risk of cancer by 35 percent. People who take sleep aids are also four times more likely to die than those who do not.
If these numbers aren’t scary enough, there is also evidence to show that prescription aids don’t even give you effective sleep. The National Institutes of Health found that sleep medicines only reduced the time it takes to fall asleep by less than 13 minutes and increased overall sleep time by 11 minutes.
Why You Should Take A Natural Sleep Aid
Sleep loss is as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. It also increases your risk of many diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, glucose sensitivity, mood and anxiety disorders, suicide, and cardiovascular death. Even with diet and lifestyle changes, some people need additional help getting a good night’s sleep. But considering their awful side effects, prescription medications aren’t worth it.
Reported side effects of sleep medications are depression, disorientation and confusion, sleep walking, hallucinations, and memory loss. Some people even report being completely unaware of events that took place that same day because of their medications. Natural aids are available to do the job without unwanted side effects. Sleep Elixir contains nine high-quality ingredients to help you get a great night sleep naturally, without waking up drowsy.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that has a calming effect on the nervous system. B vitamins are not stored in the body and need to be constantly supplied in the diet. Supplementing with vitamin B is naturally effective for improving insomnia due to its ability to help you relax.
Many people are kept awake at night from stress. Studies show that vitamin B enhances the sleep cycle by reducing psychological stress and sleep disturbances.
Magnesium promotes sleep by helping the body and brain relax. Studies show that magnesium deficiencies are linked to severe insomnia. Magnesium also binds to GABA receptors to enhance absorption and regulates melatonin to quiet the nervous system. Sleep Elixir natural sleep aid contains all three ingredients.
Zinc has powerful medicinal properties that range from fighting cancer to the common cold. All tissues in the body have zinc in them. It is needed for cell division and plays a major role in managing several body systems. The health benefits of zinc include:
According to a 2011 study, supplementing with a nightly combination of zinc, magnesium, and melatonin improved the quality of sleep in patients of long-term facility programs. Sleep Elixir’s precise formula contains all three ingredients to help you get the best night’s sleep naturally.
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, meaning the body does not create it and we must get it from our diet. Amino acids are known as the “building blocks of protein.” They are found in foods such as turkey, nuts, seeds, pineapple, cheese and eggs.
Essential amino acids are needed to help the body produce non-essential amino acids that are made in the body. Together, they play a major role in neurotransmitter signaling, balancing blood sugar levels, and supporting brain health. Once ingested, l-tryptophane creates a byproduct in the body called 5-hyrdoxytryptophan or 5HTP.
L-tryptophan, 5HTP, and serotonin work together to balance mood and reduce depression. One study shows that l-tryptophan enhances sleep and mood by boosting serotonin levels.
Serotonin has a calming effect on the central nervous system. It promotes feelings of comfort and wellness. Supplementing with 5HTP produced by l-tryptophan has been shown to reduce depression as well as many prescription drugs. The same study found that supplementing with l-tryptophan improves sleep quality, decreases teeth grinding, and reduces episodes of sleep apnea.
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid or GABA is a neurotransmitter that quiets the nervous system and promotes restful sleep.
GABA helps you sleep by quieting nerve activity in the brain to help you relax. Studies show that people with insomnia have 30 percent lower levels of GABA in their brain than those without sleep problems. Another study showed that people who took GABA fell asleep faster and had better quality sleep. They also reported waking up feeling more energized in the morning.
GABA works with other sedative herbs in Sleep Elixir to promote deep sleep.
L-theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid found in tea. It is beneficial for everything from helping you sleep to keeping weight off.
L-theanine is also safe for children. A 2011 study found that boys with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder improved their quality of sleep when they took l-theanine. Oral supplementation of l-theanine also improved symptoms of the disease without any side effects.
Supplementing with l-theanine is especially beneficial if you’re a coffee drinker. Research shows that l-theanine calms the speedy effects of caffeine on the body without affecting its fat-burning abilities. Another study found that subjects who took 200 milligrams of l-theanine a day improved their quality of sleep. The study concluded that l-theanine helped subjects recover from exhaustion and wake up feeling refreshed. The subjects also reported feeling like they slept longer than they really did.
In addition to helping you sleep, l-theanine helps put you in a better mood. L-theanine can cross the blood-brain barrier where it positively affects the brain. Research shows that l-theanine reduces anxiety and depression and enhances memory and learning. One study found that l-theanine reduced the risk of stroke by 40 percent.
Valerian Root Extract
Valerian root extract is an herb that improves sleep as effectively as many prescription drugs without any morning after downiness. As a natural sleep aid, valerian root improves your quality of sleep and helps you fall asleep faster. One study found that 44 percent of people who took valerian root reported having perfect sleep while nearly 90 percent reported improved sleep.
Valerian root also works well with other herbs and is safe enough for children. One study found that 81 percent of children who took valerian root with other herbs slept better than the control group.
Valerian is an effective sleep aid because it enhances GABA levels in the brain. Studies show that taking valerian root causes brain nerve endings to release GABA. It also blocks brain nerve cells from reabsorbing it. It also inhibits enzymes that block GABA from entering the brain to ensure a good night’s sleep.
Along with promoting sleep, valerian root has the following benefits:
Chamomile Flower Extract
Chamomile flower extract has been used for centuries as a remedy for many health problems. The active ingredients in chamomile flower extract are flavonoids and terpenoids. They have been shown to aid in the following areas:
Chamomile has a mild sedative effect that calms the nervous system to treat anxiety, nightmares, insomnia, and various other sleep disturbances. A 2009 study indicated that chamomile extract can also be used to treat generalized anxiety disorder. Results of the study found that subjects who took chamomile for eight weeks had a greatly reduced their anxiety. It was also well tolerated by all subjects.
Melatonin is one of the most effective natural sleep aids on the market. Studies show it is effective at treating insomnia and even fighting cancer. Melatonin is a hormone that is needed to control the body’s natural sleep and wake cycle.
Melatonin is secreted by a pea-sized gland in the brain. When you turn out the lights at night to go to sleep, the brain releases melatonin. Melatonin is suppressed by light. When you wake up first thing in the morning and turn on the lights, production is stopped. Supplementing with melatonin is a good way to tell your body it’s time to go to sleep.
Research shows that melatonin decreases with age. Melatonin is highest in children as they often require more sleep. It is also crucial to control a woman’s menstrual cycle. Many women with menstrual problems often have insomnia and may benefit from melatonin.
A 2012 study showed that patients who took two milligrams of melatonin one to two hours before going to bed improve their sleep quality and length. They were also shown to be more alert in the morning and had better quality of life. Finally, the study concluded that melatonin had no withdrawal effects, side effects, or rebound insomnia.
Melatonin may help with jet lag after a long trip. Jet lag is a condition that occurs when a person travels by plane across multiple time zones and disrupts their body clock. Your body clock is what keeps you on a schedule and tells you when it’s time to fall asleep or wake up. One study shows that taking melatonin may help reset your body clock after traveling for extended periods of time.
The study found that melatonin was “remarkably effective” and perfectly safe for reducing or preventing jet lag. Researchers found that melatonin decreased jet lag across five or more time zones when taken between the hours of 10 pm and midnight. Subjects fell asleep faster and had better sleep after taking five milligrams of melatonin.
