Sleep Supplements: How To Overcome Insomnia Naturally

Are you among the majority of people who suffer from insomnia or sleeplessness? If so, then instead of popping those sleeping pills, it is recommended that you choose sleep supplements as they are more natural and cause few side-effects.

Causes of Insomnia

Insomnia is not a big problem. It is caused mainly because your body is deficient in some essential nutrients like minerals, vitamins, amino acids and enzymes. Sleep supplements help replace these missing essentials and as a result, you sleep well and stay asleep throughout the night.

Calcium acts as a sedative and if your body is low on calcium, you may end up feeling restless which may lead to insomnia or sleeplessness. The next important component essential for a sound sleep is magnesium. If your body has low magnesium levels, then you may become nervous easily and the result is sleeplessness.

An amino acid known as tryptophan is responsible for producing a hormone called serotonin in your body that helps you fall asleep. Tryptophan also helps your brain produce melatonin, a hormone secreted by a pea sized organ called the pineal glands in our brain which is important to regulate your body's sleep pattern. When your body is low on this amino acid, your brain produces low melatonin which in turn affects your system.

The Remedy

Sleeping pills tend to have many side-effects like dry mouth, drowsiness the next day, forgetfulness, nausea, sweating, drug dependence, masking of underlying mental disorders and so on. Sleep supplements on the other hand are safer and have minimal or no side-effects when compared to the pills. Sleep supplements provide all those vital components to your body which help overcome insomnia. However, it is always recommended that you seek your doctor's opinion before starting on any of these regimens.

Types of Sleep Supplements

There are broadly two types. The first type helps in addressing the biochemical problem. In other words, it boosts the levels of melatonin and serotonin which in turn promotes sleep. The second category is those which help in bringing down your stress levels. When the stress levels are reduced, you automatically tend to get a sound sleep.

A Word of Caution

However, please note that these are not substitutes for your diet but just a way to boost the essential factors which promote sleep. Also please remember that every individual is different from the other and the body reactions to supplements differ. It is not necessary that if one person's body reacts well, your body will also react in the same way.

When to Avoid Taking These Supplements

There are some exceptions when you must avoid taking them. Here are the cases:

* Avoid them in case you are pregnant * If you are breast feeding your baby * If you are under the age of 35 * If you are suffering from any kind of kidney problem * If you are suffering from blood cancer, diabetes, heart problem or sleep apnea * If you are having any immune system related problems

Sleep supplements will help you feel refreshed and recharged. It will prepare you to conquer the many health and lifestyle challenges that we face in today's fast paced world. To know more, visit
