Are you getting a restful night's sleep?
If not, you're not alone. About two-thirds of all Americans complain of occasional sleeplessness.
Nearly 40% of those polled said they wake up off and on throughout the night, while more than a quarter of respondents said they wake up too early and can’t get back to sleep – or had a tough time falling asleep in the first place.
If that wasn’t bad enough, almost half of respondents said they don’t feel refreshed when they wake up in the morning. Many even feel more tired and have a difficult time staying awake during the day.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? Perhaps you occasionally have trouble falling or staying asleep – or don’t feel your best when you wake up? That's not the way it’s supposed to be.
You want to be able to fall asleep quickly, get a peaceful night’s rest and wake up feeling recharged, renewed and reenergized.
Why the Quality of Sleep Affects Your Health
A restful sleep is not only something you want. It's something your body desperately requires.
You need a minimum of seven to eight hours of sleep each night to help:
- Recharge your body and mind.
- Supports the brain’s normal detoxification process.
- Support your immune system.
- Deal with daily stressors.
- Promote muscle and cellular repair.
- Restore mental, emotional and physical energy.
- Renew the focus and alertness you need to get through your day.
Without a doubt, good sleep is essential for your health and well-being, including your brain function.
Many people are surprised to learn that their brain has its own unique waste removal system called the glymphatic system.
Your brain must have enough restful sleep at night, so it can carry out its normal purging of wastes. While you’re asleep, your brain cells actually shrink by about 60% so your brain can more easily flush away toxins and harmful proteins that accumulate during the day.
Not prioritizing your sleep may prevent your brain from performing this essential daily task, which can adversely affect your cognitive health.
You know you did not get enough good-quality sleep at night when:
- You have difficulty getting out of bed in the morning.
- Your performance suffers on the job or with normal activities.
- It takes extra focus to make even the easiest decisions.
- You find yourself feeling clumsy.
- You experience increased moodiness, or irritation.
- You struggle to stay awake while working or driving.
These are just a few of the effects you may experience as a result of insufficient sleep. In fact, an important study showed that getting less sleep for just a single night reduced participants’ ability to function the following day by over 30%.
Enjoy Deep Sleep With Sleep Support*
Available in your choice of a fast-acting spray or convenient tablets, Sleep Support with Melatonin offers a proprietary blend of carefully-selected neuro-nutrients and botanical extracts to help promote deep and restful sleep*.
Our unique formula contains nine other ingredients, including a Neuro and Calming Blend, that work synergistically with melatonin to improve your quality of sleep.
Dr. Mercola’s Neuro Blend includes:
- L-Theanine – An amino acid found in tea that acts as a neurotransmitter promoting relaxation.*
- 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytrptophan) – A serotonin-precursor that helps raise serotonin levels in your brain, supporting restful sleep and mood.*
- GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) – A naturally occurring amino acid found in studies to increase relaxing brain alpha waves and reduce “busy-mind” beta waves.*
- L-Tryptophan – An essential amino acid that’s needed for the production of serotonin in your brain, and it’s a precursor to melatonin and niacin. Shown in clinical studies to help support normal sleep patterns.*
Sleep Support also contains a Calming Blend of three botanical extracts:
- Tart Cherry Fruit Concentrate – Natural cherry juice with anthocyanins, polyphenols and flavonoids that may help increase the duration and quality of your sleep.*
- Chamomile Flower Powder – Contains an antioxidant called apigenin which binds to receptors in your brain to help you relax and initiate sleep.*
- Jujube Seed Extract – A fruit used in traditional Chinese practice that works well with 5-HTP.*
While there’s no shortage of melatonin supplements on the market today, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that matches up. Sleep Support brings together the best ingredients available for promoting sleep.
A precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, 5-HTP, for example, is just one of the 10 exceptional ingredients in our formula. Serotonin is vitally important to your brain, as it helps relay signals between cells and regulates mood and behavior.*
5-HTP and serotonin may:
- Help produce a calming effect.*
- Help you fall asleep faster.*
- Increase the time you spend in REM sleep, which in turn helps you feel well rested and vibrant during the day.*
Your body makes 5-HTP from tryptophan, an essential amino acid found in food. However, researchers have found that eating tryptophan-rich foods has little impact on your 5-HTP levels.
Many more exceptional ingredients in Sleep Support, such as Niacin and Vitamin B6, were carefully selected to help you sleep more soundly.*
Melatonin – Nature’s Key Player to Help You Get the Sleep You Deserve*
Melatonin is a hormone produced by a pea-sized gland in the middle of your brain called the pineal gland.
For most people, the pineal gland is inactive during the day. It’s only at night – in darkness – that your pineal gland switches on and begins producing melatonin that gets released into your blood.
In countless studies, it has been shown to:
- Increase your feeling of sleepiness.*
- Help you fall asleep quicker.*
- Lengthen total sleep duration.*
- Enhance overall sleep quality.*
- Restore your morning alertness.*
- Reduce normal daytime fatigue.*
Typically, during a normal night’s sleep, your melatonin levels stay elevated for about 12 hours (usually between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m.). As the sun rises and your day begins, your pineal gland turns “off,” and the melatonin levels in your blood decrease until they’re hardly measurable at all.
The amount of melatonin you create and release every night varies depending on your age. Children usually have much higher levels of melatonin than adults.
As you grow older, your levels tend to decrease. Researchers believe this may explain why many older adults occasionally experience disrupted sleep patterns.
With less melatonin in your blood, the stimulus to fall asleep, stay asleep and wake feeling rested can potentially be compromised.
Indeed, that’s just one of the reasons why Sleep Support with Melatonin is a superior sleep supplement for people with occasional disrupted sleep patterns, including those with travel-related jet lag and night-shift workers.*
Two Common Mistakes Many People Make When Taking Melatonin
As helpful as research shows melatonin may be, it isn’t a “cure-all” for all sleep concerns, and it is a potent hormone.
That said, here are two common mistakes that many make when taking melatonin:
Taking too much
Perhaps you’ve seen sleep melatonin products that contain 3 mg or even 5 mg of melatonin per serving and wondered if “more is better.” Too high a dose can potentially disrupt your sleeping pattern and cause you to wake up in the middle of the night or make it more difficult to wake up alert and refreshed in the morning.
That’s why we’ve formulated Sleep Support with what’s optimal for most people to promote sound sleep – 1.5 mg of melatonin per six-spray or one-tablet dose.*
Taking it too late
If you take oral melatonin tablets right before hopping into bed, you may think it’s not working and be tempted to take more. Some melatonin tablets can take as long as 90 minutes to start working in your body.
Our Sleep Support with Melatonin fast-acting spray or convenient tablets work quickly because they are a unique blend of 10 ingredients and not just one. If you’re taking Sleep Support tablets, we recommend taking one an hour before bedtime.
