Insomnia Info

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.

Product Reviews

  • Great product

    star

    I have fibromyalgia and have tried a lot of magnesium products to help with pain and muscle tension. This is definitely the best I've tried, it has minimal sensation (no itching, stinging or tingling, which often occurs when you put magnesium products on the skin and have a deficiency) and works fast. My main pain areas are my neck/shoulders and my skin often gets irritated from other products due to sensitive skin, but I can use this no problem. Although it doesn't help much with my sleep (I have insomnia - but the cream is calming) I've found because of its low fragrance, it's perfect for bedtime.

  • Good product

    star

    While away overseas I used a low dose sublingual melatonin which worked a treat to stop early morning waking (1-2am). I t was easy to obtain over the counter but here in NZ melatonin has to be prescribed which doesn't include the low sublingual dose, so I thought I would try this product.
    Used with Clinicians 5-HTP 2 caps and a Magnesium capsule it seems to be the best combination for me.
    Most nights get 6-7 hours sleep straight.
    Will continue using this product.
