Are you not getting the restful, full night of sleep that you need? Millions of Americans have difficulty sleeping, and one major cause is a decrease in melatonin production, which commonly occurs as people age.
Melatonin is a hormone that is secreted by the pineal gland in the brain, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. It works by maintaining the body’s circadian rhythm. For instance, when it’s light outside, less melatonin is released, and when it’s dark, more is, telling your body when it’s time to go to bed. This is why engaging in stimulating activities, such as watching television, before sleep can lead to insomnia, because the brain is essentially tricked into thinking it’s still daytime.
Individuals who still have trouble falling asleep should try to limit such activities. In fact, opting to read before bed can make a huge difference. If insomnia is still a problem, sufferers can try an all-natural supplement made by Dr. Newton’s Naturals called Dr. Pinkus’ Sublingual Sleep. The sleep tablets contain magnesium, vitamin B-1 and antioxidants to make you feel less stressed and relaxed. Get the rest you need to stay refreshed and ready to go each day.
