NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP?
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on January 5, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Lack of deep, restful sleep can have daytime consequences including irritability, decreased ability to concentrate, chronic fatigue, and reduced decision-making skills. The importance of quality sleep can’t be overemphasized!
There are many causes or triggers of insomnia. Some of these include depression, stress and anxiety, physical health issues such as arthritis and asthma, sleep apnea, medications, use of stimulants such as caffeine and nicotine, and nutritional deficiencies.
Along with establishing a balanced lifestyle to help reduce any underlying tension and stress, herbs such as Chamomile and Valerian can help the body to relax, encouraging it to fall asleep naturally.
Natural Sleeping Essentials from Natural Wellbeing is a gentle, all-natural product that contains both of these time-honored herbs. They’re combined with other key ingredients to help you fall asleep and stay asleep, including melatonin, tryptophan, and niacin.
If you have regular difficulty falling/staying asleep, it’s important to determine what the cause is (if you don’t already know). For occasional insomnia and restlessness during stress, or when recovering from jet lag or shiftwork, consider Natural Sleeping Essentials!
