For those searching for deep restorative sleep, Peaceful Nights™ provides the support you'll need so you can fall into restful slumber completely and naturally.
Peaceful Nights™ contains these and other natural sleep supporting ingredients:
Valerian root: Is an ancient medicinal herb with a long history of use. Valerian returned to prominence and popularity during World War I, when it was used to help those with nervous stress in army hospitals. To this day, valerian root is popular in supporting sleep, calmness, and relaxation.
Leading researcher and physician, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum recommends valerian for its adaptogenic properties, meaning it adapts to what the body needs. He writes, "Valerian is a mild sleep [enhancer] that has the interesting effect of calming people when they are anxious while at the same time acting as a stimulant when people are fatigued." One study using Valerian found that 100mg three times per day was more effective than placebo.
GABA: Gamma-aminobutyric acid is the number one inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter in the brain. Its function is to decrease neuron activity and inhibit nerve cells from over firing. Too much activity can lead to restlessness, irritability, and poor sleep. GABA inhibits the number of nerve cells that fire in the brain to promote a sense of calm and stability.
Calcium: Not only is calcium a nutrient fundamental to building and maintaining strong bones and teeth, it also plays important roles in proper muscle and nerve function, and relaxation.
Skullcap: Used by Native Americans and European herbalists, skullcap is a mild sleep enhancer that helps induce feelings of calm and relief from nervousness.
Passion flower: Is a vine native to North America, used by Native Americans as a mild sedative. In 1985, Germany's Commission E approved passion flower to help patients with "nervous unrest." Passion flower is also used to help manage stress and improve.
Chamomile: This popular flower is often mixed in teas to relieve stress and mild tension while promoting relaxation.
