Sleep, Pain, Anxiety, Addiction recovery
Sleep is a sleep aid or deep relaxation formula that can be used as a general sedative and for pain. It is a Valerian formula (see Valerian monograph) 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. 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 dropper full also contains a full serving of Melatonin, the hormone that one secretes to insure one's 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, is a direct herbal painkiller, 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.
