Sleep

According to SleepHealth.org, 25% of Americans say they don’t get enough sleep or rest half the time.

When you don’t sleep enough or don’t sleep well, chances are you’re not learning or remembering well, your mood suffers, and your coordination and reaction times diminish. You can’t be your best, and, what’s worse, you put yourself at risk of accidents at home, at work, and while driving. Drowsy driving may play a role in 20% of car accidents that produce serious injuries.

Poor sleep interferes with good health, of course, but health problems can also make it harder to fall asleep and sleep soundly. Stress, digestive discomfort, and joint and muscle pain can all contribute to sleep problems, so make sure to address those underlying issues as a part of your quest for better sleep.

Our favorite supplements for better sleep include natural approaches for muscle relaxation, reducing anxiety, and balancing your circadian rhythms.

Calm Eze:
 
It’s hard to sleep when you’re anxious and it feels like your brain won’t relax. When levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter, increase in the brain, excitability decreases and relaxation ensues. According to research, GABA supplementation can significantly increase alpha waves in the brain and decrease beta waves, thereby reducing anxiety. Calm Eze contains two nutrients that can increase GABA levels, GABA itself and l-theanine. Both are natural ways to reduce anxiety, which can lead to better sleep.
GoodNight:
 
Insomnia interferes with your moods, productivity, and enjoyment of life. This formula calls upon a mix of B vitamins, herbs, and amino acids to help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. Melatonin signals your body’s cells that it’s time to fall asleep. Tryptophan, an essential amino acid that helps your body make serotonin, works on GABA-sensitive nerve cells to make you sleepy. The herbal ingredients–hops, lemon balm, and valerian root—promote relaxation by influencing GABA in various ways.
Stress Essentials Serenity:
 
Stress ages you. It can also take a toll on internal systems, leading to impacts on cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, blood sugar, and hormone processes. To help protect against these threats, Stress Essentials Serenity includes a blend of herbal extracts found in traditional Chinese medicine that have proven antioxidant effects. These plant-based compounds can help reduce the aging effects of stress, protect brain health, and improve sleep patterns.

Melatonin 20:

Many people turn to melatonin to help them get to sleep, especially night owls whose schedule calls for them to get up early. This formula provides a potent dose of the highest-purity melatonin available without any other ingredients. With a better night’s sleep, you can wake up rejuvenated and energized, ready to make the most out of your day.

Muscle Eze Advanced:
 
When your muscles are tight, it’s hard to relax and fall asleep. Muscles require calcium and magnesium for optimal function. In addition, this formula contains high-potency extracts of herbs that can help muscles relax and help prevent delayed-onset soreness after increased activity. And if you have fibromyalgia pain, you may find it easier to fall asleep after taking this formula, since it contains magnesium and malic acid, a combination that research suggests may reduce fibromyalgia pain.
