Herbal Sleep Supplements: Natural Ways To Get The Sleep Required For Good Health

When we are kids, we fight having to go to bed. By the time we are adults, we relish the moment it is time to snuggle in under the sheets and drift off to dream land. But, sometimes that sleep you love so much just doesn't come. There are a number of reasons a person can't get to sleep-stress, over-stimulation right before bed, illness and medications are just some of the causes of a sleepless night.

Herbal sleep supplements can be helpful in getting you the zzzzs you desperately need. Chamomile, valerian root, lavender and even catnip are believed to help naturally calm the mind and relax the body and prepare it for slumber.

Some are orally ingested, but others, like lavender, are effective as aromatherapy. Whether it is a tea, a herbal supplement capsule or scented oils and candles that help you relax, the most important thing is that you sleep.

Not getting enough shut-eye can lead to some serious health problems and if you don't like the addictive possibility or the side effects of synthetic sleep aids, try herbal alternatives. Here are some of the major risks to your health if you aren't getting enough sleep each night:

* Heart Disease

Lack of sleep is stressful on the body and when it is stressed, it releases the hormone cortisol. Cortisol can not only increase body fat around the waistline which dangerous to heart health, but it also causes inflammation in the body.

Also, it has been noticed that calcium build-up increases in the arteries in people with insufficient sleep. All of this can lead to not only heart disease but diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol and blood pressure.

* Mental Clarity

A well rested body thinks more clearly. While your body rests, your brain makes sense of the day and all the information it stored away. It processes, organizes and correlates existing information with new information.

Picture filing cabinets holding all of your memories-if you didn't get enough rest, your inbox would be overflowing and papers would be everywhere. When you get a good respite, everything gets filed away in an orderly fashion so you can recall it when you are awake.

* Cell repair

When you shut your eyes, your body goes into repair mode. It gets to work on reverse damage to the cells brought on by the environment, pollution and stress of the day. The production of the protein melatonin increases during the non-REM phase of sleep. Not getting to this phase means that cell repair is not accelerated.

* Mental Health

The body produces serotonin during the night. This neurotransmitter is essential for good mental health. People deficient in serotonin are more likely to become depressed. Fatigue and day-time tiredness also affect mood.

Because herbal supplements can be obtained without a prescription, it is important that you ask your doctor or pharmacist before you try them. Though these products are all-natural, they may still adversely interact with prescription medications you are also taking. Take a deep breath, relax and, if counting sheep doesn't work, try herbal sleep supplements.

Are you sleep-deprived and running out of options? Herbal sleep supplements can help you get the restful, rejuvenating sleep you need to maintain your health and well-being. For high-quality, doctor formulated supplements that support optimal health, go to
