If you’re someone who has trouble falling asleep at night (or staying asleep for that matter), LUNA Natural Sleep Aid was created for you. Whether you live in a big city, travel a lot, or have an abnormal sleep cycle (I’m thinking of parents with young kids), sleep is a big one. But this isn’t your regular sleeping aid. LUNA’s hand-picked ingredients are carefully chosen and blended to give you exactly what the brain and body need to get into that deep sleep.
Lets begin with valerian, an herbal compound recommended by health experts due to its powers of reducing the amount of time to nod off. This is essential. How many times a week do we lie in bed at night with racing thoughts about yesterday’s decisions, today’s actions and tomorrow’s tasks? Let Valerian’s natural sedative properties work synergistically with the brains chemistry and begin the sleep cycle.
GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid):
Valerian’s best friend GABA can also be found in LUNA Natural Sleep Aid. A natural amino acid derivative found in green tea, GABA activates the major calming neurotransmitters in the brain promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety. GABA influences our mood because it reduces high levels of the hormones adrenalin, noradrenalin and dopamine, and it affects the neurotransmitter serotonin. All this specific brain activity and having enough GABA in our brain is linked to being relaxed and happy.
An age-old medicinal herb known in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, chamomile has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for numerous medical complaints. To name a few; asthma, colic, fevers, nervous complaints, skin diseases and relaxation. On-going research has identified chamomiles specific anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, muscle relaxant and sedative properties, validating its long-held reputation.
The herb’s properties are gentle remedies that play such a powerful role in the body, it’s no wonder lemon balm is taking over the botanical world. Several studies have used Lemon balm/Valerian combinations to treat stress, anxiety and insomnia. These studies have shown improved sleep patters and reduced stress/anxiety.
Have you ever seen a picture of a passion flower? One of natures most beautiful works of art, you can’t help but feel joy and at ease looking at such a miracle. Passion flower helps you mellow out by boosting the brain’s levels of GABA thus lowering brain activity. When passion flower is used in conduction with other middy sedative herbs like Lemon Balm and Chamomile, the alkaloids and flavonoids of Passion Flower are stronger and relaxants properties become more available for the body use.
It has been tested and true that changing your lifestyle and sleep habits is the best way to combat insomnia and irregular sleeping patterns. Taking the first step can be the hardest and reaching for a natural aid versus prescription will benefit in the long run.
