Sleep is a sleep aid or deep relaxation formula that can be helpful as a general sedative and pain reduction. It is a Valerian formula that combines the best herbal sedatives with Melatonin. Sleep impacts the central nervous system to slow it down. There are various reasons why one may have insomnia and the idea here is to approach various physiological pathways to get deeper results more quickly. Valerian and Hops are deep central nervous system sedatives that make one sleepy while Skullcap is more of a peripheral nerve ending pain relaxing agent. Each cap or dropperful also contains a full serving of Melatonin, the hormone that one secretes to insure ones circadian rhythm is active and one can tell night from day and therefore go to sleep normally. This hormone can become deficient under daily stress. Sleep may help insomnia, anxiety, headaches, and pain. It helps reduce emotional and mental trauma, muscle pain, emotional pain, addiction recovery, and assists in pain management. It can also assist jet lag, hyperactivity and for those who need a Valium like herbal effect.
Sleep is a central nervous system sedative that will slow down the mind and body, and is best at night since it slows cognitive activity. If under great pain or anxiety, use it any time of day. It is a general skeletal muscle and smooth muscle (relaxes tubes of the body such as colon, urinary tract, bile duct, and uterus) relaxer, so it can help many kinds of abdominal pain. It can be helpful for physical pain after surgeries or injuries, menstrual cramps, cramping pain from passing a stone (kidney or gall bladder), gas pain and for headaches. It can help take the edge off of emotional and mental pain.
Sleep can make one feel groggy, so it is best used in the evening or when one can relax. Using Kava Gold during the day can help manage pain and anxiety during the day without becoming groggy. Use Sleep at night to help induce a better sleep that will help recovery time and to help have better energy the next day through having a good night’s sleep. Overall, if the pain or discomfort is great, Sleep is the primary formula to use.
Sleep can help one to come off alcohol, drug, cigarette, or other addictions that make one irritable and where sedation is helpful in the acute recovery phase.
