“Insomnia is my greatest inspiration.”
Insomnia (sometimes referred to as 'sleeplessness',) is a common form of sleep disorder, where the sufferer is not able to fall asleep (or stay asleep as long) as they would like. It affects one in four people globally and can significantly diminish quality of life. While the term is used to describe a disorder of disturbed sleep, insomnia is practically defined as answering 'yes' to either of two questions: "Do you experience difficulty sleeping?" or "Do you have difficulty falling or staying asleep?"
Insomnia can occur at any age, but it is particularly common in the elderly. Insomnia can be short term (up to three weeks) or long term (above 3–4 weeks), which can lead to memory problems, depression, irritability and an increased risk of heart disease and automobile related accidents.
Those who are having trouble sleeping sometimes turn to sleeping pills, which can help when used occasionally but may lead to dependence or addiction if used regularly for an extended period.
There are natural health remedies available that may help you sleep.
Elevated melatonin levels coincide with the body's normal time for sleeping. L-tryptophan (as found in 5-HTP) is an amino acid that serves as a precursor for serotonin and melatonin and thus promotes better sleeping patterns.
Presence of melatonin is highly correlated with the body's sleep-wake cycle (as controlled by the circadian cycle.) Low melatonin levels have been linked to insomnia, particularly in the elderly. Several studies have found that melatonin supplementation is able to improve sleep.
Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in cellular communication and regulation of circadian rhythms. As sleep restriction increases, intracellular magnesium concentrations decline. Magnesium supplementation combined with melatonin and zinc has been shown to improve sleep in the elderly
Zinc may also play a role in facilitating sleep. One study observed that women with high levels of zinc in their bodies slept for longer periods of time than women with low levels (Song 2012). As mentioned above, when combined with melatonin and magnesium, zinc also supported quality of sleep in the elderly (Rondanelli 2011). Among children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, zinc (in combination with magnesium and omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids) helped relieve problems falling asleep (Huss 2010).
Valerian is a sedative herb that has been used for over 300 years as a treatment of insomnia. Valerian root helps reduce brain activity and allows users to fall asleep more easily. The typical dose of valerian is about 300 to 600 mg, taken between half an hour and two hours before going to bed. It may take up to two weeks of daily usage for the sedative effect to take place. Chamomile is used as a tea to promote sleep and relaxation. Passionflower is also known for its sedative and anxiety-reducing effects. Lavender oils have been used for the treatment of insomnia. Some studies have found that lavender oil improves sleep quality and reduces feelings of drowsiness after awakening.
Has helped greatly
Have been using this product for almost a year and I noticed a big difference when I slipped back to a straight magnesium product as I found a spare bottle in a cupboard. I hit a really stressful patch with loads of pain due to frozen shoulder and sleep was not s good as it should have been I take a half dose(one cap) to help me off to sleep without it Im lost for hours reading a book. Far better than the GPs idea of sleeping pills once or twice a week to get a good nights rest. Other benefits have been the lack of cramps in my toes and feet during the night as well can well do with out those eye watering wake ups.
Highly recommend Martin & Pleasance Sleep Relief spray
I have a lot of difficulty getting to sleep and have found Martin & Pleasance Sleep Relief the best spray so far. Would definitely recommend! I have found it very difficult to come by at pharmacies, they have other products but I only use Sleep Relief now. I don't even bother scouring pharmacies or health shops anymore, Health Post has such easy online ordering, great price and prompt delivery!
Cant sleep without it
My fiance and I rely on this product, its simple, effective, travels well. works.
The only issue we have is that the spray nozzle 'vent' has recently been made all white - previously the 'vent' was black so you didn't have to look so hard for it. Much better.
