Benefits of Sleep Aid Supplements
Our Sleep 2.0 formula has been scientifically formulated to promote better sleep. Prime ingredients include melatonin, Valerian root, passionflower extract, California poppy powder, chamomile, L-Theanine, and hops. When you’re having trouble getting that sound sleep your internal clock craves, add Sleep 2.0 to your evening. This non-habit-forming sleep-aid helps you get some rest, so you can wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
Chamomile contains the bioflavonoid apigenin, which is said to reduce anxiety and promote sleep. Meanwhile, L-Theanine is an amino acid derived from tea leaves. It promotes the elevation of calming neurotransmitters (such as GABA, serotonin, and dopamine) in the brain and increases alpha brain wave levels. Increased alpha wave levels have been shown to reduce anxiety and depression.
Valerian, passionflower, California poppy, and hops are anxiolytic herbs that promote healthy levels of GABA in the brain. Adequate GABA levels facilitate optimal periods of slow-wave sleep (SWS), which in turn promotes cerebral rejuvenation. A 2012 study documents that passionflower reduced anxiety levels in patients undergoing spinal surgery. Additionally, California poppy holds the same sedative properties as morphine without its potentially addictive attributes.
Taking Sleep Aid Supplements Safely
Ideally, sleep aids should be relied on for short-term use only. To date, no conclusive studies have documented the risks associated with persistent use of prescription and non-prescription medications. That said, natural sleep supplements and meaningful lifestyle changes can be an effective means of increasing one’s quality of sleep.
