Did you know that irregular sleep patterns are being called the new silent killer, being as detrimental to health as stress and poor diet? Studies show that those who chronically get less sleep than the “golden” 7-8 hours are at a higher risk for a number of diseases, are prone to weight gain, and are less able to deal with the effects of stress. People suffering from insomnia spend less time in deeper levels of sleep, wake up more often, and experience a reduction in REM sleep. In addition to stress, insomnia can be caused by a variety of other factors, including anxiety, poor diet, or a disruption of the body's internal clock - such as jet lag, all-night study sessions, or changing work hours.

Ortho•Sleep is an award winning premium sleep and relaxation formula. The most important neurotransmitters known to regulate the sleep-wake cycle have been combined with the most powerful herbs traditionally used to promote sleep, yielding a natural sleep remedy like no other.  Ortho•Sleep contains a carefully formulated blend of nutrients and compounds that have been shown to be effective in combating insomnia, restoring a proper circadian rhythm and promoting healthy, restful sleep. These include relaxing neurotransmitters like GABA and melatonin, as well as 5-HTP, a serotonin precursor to reduce feelings of worry especially when trying to fall asleep. The formula further includes the amino acid L-theanine as well as valerian root, passionflower extract, and lemon balm, all of which possess relaxing properties and work to increase the activity of GABA in the brain. 

Ortho•Sleep is perfect for those who have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or feeling rested upon awaking. Ortho•Sleep may help in cases of jet-lag, shift work or insomnia. If you have used the individual ingredients found in the formula with no success, Ortho•Sleep may offer a more powerful natural solution.

Discussion

Ortho•Sleep™ was formulated to be the most comprehensively powerful natural sleep-aid available to improve overall sleep. Ortho•Sleep™ is clinically proven to help increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule such as shift-work and jet lag, and helps relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Ortho•Sleep™ is also clinically proven to help reduce the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency aspect of sleep quality) in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome, and helps to re-set the body’s sleep-wake cycle (an aspect of the circadian rhythm).

Sleep - Essential but Neglected Many people have trouble sleeping or have disrupted sleep patterns. People suffering from insomnia spend less time in deeper levels of sleep, wake up more often, and experience a reduction in REM sleep. In addition to stress, insomnia can be caused by a variety of other factors, including anxiety, poor diet, or a disruption of the body's internal clock - such as jet lag, all-night study sessions, or changing work hours.

Sleep problems are not uncommon for many people; they can have a dramatic negative impact on one
Neurotransmitter #1: GABA In a small, unpublished study, GABA supplementation reduced sleep latency (transition time from wakefulness to stage I of Non-REM sleep) by 20%, and increased the time spent in late-stage deep sleep by another 20%. Neurotransmitter #2: Melatonin Supplemental melatonin's effects on sleep are extensive and well documented. One study with delayed sleep-phase insomniacs reduced sleep latency times by an average of 115 minutes. Supplemental melatonin is particularly well-researched with respect to dealing with disruptions in the body's internal clock, such as jet lag and shift work, with no fewer than 10 clinical studies demonstrating its ability to resynchronize the body's altered circadian rhythms governing sleep. Neurotransmitter #3: Serotonin Supplemental 5-HTP has been successfully studied for the treatment of a number of conditions, including mood balance, chronic fatigue, and migraines. Studies examining its positive effects on sleep go back to the early 1970's, and a recent study revealed that 5-HTP supplementation was able to reduce the number of sleep-terror episodes in children by nearly 84%. Valerian There are several placebo-controlled human studies attesting to Valerian's effectiveness against insomnia, particularly via the reduction of sleep latency and the improvement in sleep quality. These studies were also fairly large and spanned a wide range of age groups from both genders, with one study conducted among 128 test subjects where the greatest benefit was for self-described "poor sleepers". Passionflower In one non-randomized clinical trial, 20 patients with psychosomatic disorders were administered with either a passionflower/valerian root combination or the neuroleptic drug Propaphenin

Rules I Live by in the Kitchen: A Naturopath Explains  -2015-10-14

Eating healthy can be complicated. What percentage of my caloric intake should be polyunsaturated fats? Is it linoleic acid that's good for me or alpha-linolenic acid? Which oil is best to cook with? It's easy to see why many people can become obsessive with their eating habits and lose their love of food.
