Insomnia Info

Insomnia can occur at any age, but it is particularly common in the elderly. Insomnia can be short term (up to three weeks) or long term (above 3–4 weeks), which can lead to memory problems, depression, irritability and an increased risk of heart disease and automobile related accidents.

Those who are having trouble sleeping sometimes turn to sleeping pills, which can help when used occasionally but may lead to dependence or addiction if used regularly for an extended period.

There are natural health remedies available that may help you sleep. 

Elevated melatonin levels coincide with the body's normal time for sleeping. L-tryptophan (as found in 5-HTP) is an amino acid that serves as a precursor for serotonin and melatonin and thus promotes better sleeping patterns.

Presence of melatonin is highly correlated with the body's sleep-wake cycle (as controlled by the circadian cycle.) Low melatonin levels have been linked to insomnia, particularly in the elderly. Several studies have found that melatonin supplementation is able to improve sleep. 

Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in cellular communication and regulation of circadian rhythms. As sleep restriction increases, intracellular magnesium concentrations decline. Magnesium supplementation combined with melatonin and zinc has been shown to improve sleep in the elderly 

Zinc may also play a role in facilitating sleep. One study observed that women with high levels of zinc in their bodies slept for longer periods of time than women with low levels (Song 2012). As mentioned above, when combined with melatonin and magnesium, zinc also supported quality of sleep in the elderly (Rondanelli 2011). Among children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, zinc (in combination with magnesium and omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids) helped relieve problems falling asleep (Huss 2010).

Valerian is a sedative herb that has been used for over 300 years as a treatment of insomnia. Valerian root helps reduce brain activity and allows users to fall asleep more easily. The typical dose of valerian is about 300 to 600 mg, taken between half an hour and two hours before going to bed. It may take up to two weeks of daily usage for the sedative effect to take place. Chamomile is used as a tea to promote sleep and relaxation. Passionflower is also  known for its sedative and anxiety-reducing effects. Lavender oils have been used for the treatment of insomnia. Some studies have found that lavender oil improves sleep quality and reduces feelings of drowsiness after awakening.

Product Reviews

  • Sorry, didn't work for me

    star- web-tec.info

    I bought these when my regular brand was unavailable and most of the reviews here were favourable - but they simply don't work for me at all.

  • Fantastic product

    star- web-tec.info

    I had great success with the Menopauzzz drops and got these for my 80 yr old Mum who has been on zopiclone for years and needed to get off them. Success for her after the second night of taking and still continually after a month. She’s thrilled and has a lot more energy the next day to go walking. Brilliant product.
