The two most important words for those who suffer from occasional sleeplessness: Good Night.
Intermittent wakefulness, difficulty falling or remaining asleep, or waking too early are all signs the body is having difficulty managing stress. Restlessness and difficulty falling asleep are often the root cause of many daytime problems, including loss of energy, concentration, and productivity. Natural ZZZs addresses these issues with natural ingredients without the side effects often associated with other regimens.
Why These Natural Ingredients
Valerian Root: Long known for its effect on anxiety and nervousness related sleeplessness, Valerian Root acts to promote smooth muscle relaxation due to increased GABA concentrations in the nerve endings. In one study of people with sleep difficulties, a Valerian preparation was shown to be as effective as benzodiazepines with none of the drug�s negative side effects (daytime sleepiness, diminished concentration, impairment of physical performance).
Jujube Seed: Used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Jujube has been scientifically shown to be an effective sleep aid, as well as promoting increased total sleep time in animal studies.
Passionflower: The dried flowering and fruiting tops of Passionflower are used in traditional herbal preparations for nervousness and difficulty sleeping. The flavonoid properties of Passionflower activate GABA receptors providing anxiolytic and sleep promoting values. During the early twentieth century, Passionflower was popular as a sedative and calmative herb and was included in the United States National Formulary. Approved by the German Commission E, Passionflower is used extensively in Europe.
L-Theanine:Recognized as an important component of a successful relaxation formula, Theanine promotes rest while helping to reduce stress. Found in green and black teas, Theanine has been shown to have a calmative effect in the brain. More recent studies have shown Theanine has a counterbalancing effect of caffeine in the body.
