Occasional sleeplessness is a very common concern. I used to recommend Melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate your “body clock”; Valerian, an herb with mild sedative effects; or L-Theanine, an amino acid with profound relaxing properties. Each of these worked for some people, but not everyone. Then I tried them in combination, and bingo! For the majority of people, this combo engenders a good night’s sleep.
Tom, a VP at the company that publishes Health & Healing, shared his story. He was eating right, exercising, and taking vitamins, but when it came time for bed, despite the fact he was physically and mentally drained, he still sometimes had trouble falling or staying asleep. Since he started taking this supplement combination, however, he sleeps like a baby.
Look for this combination. Suggested doses are 1mg Melatonin, 500 mg Valerian extract, and 200 mg L-Theanine 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime.
To Your Health –
I can’t guarantee that this combination will do it for everyone, but I can tell you that we’ve had excellent success over the years with these tried-and-true therapies.
