Somewhere around half of Americans complain of sleep problems and nearly 10% of Americans use sleeping pills.
The problem is most sleeping pills are designed to be used for a week or two but they’re often being used much longer.
Once you’ve started taking sleeping pills, it’s hard to stop. After long term use, you build up a tolerance to the medication.
Yet, at the same time, you become dependent on the medication. So, you end up not able to fall asleep without them but, even with them, your sleep isn’t that great.
So, let’s talk about some healthy alternatives. First up is L-Theanine (50-250 mg), which is naturally found in tea leaves.
This amino acid works by elevating chemicals in the brain that promote relaxation and reduce other chemicals that are linked to stress and anxiety.
So, taking L-Theanine (50-250mg) as a supplement may not only help you fall asleep quicker but also improve the quality of your sleep.
Another option is GABA, which has one main job in your system, slowing down the nerve cells.
GABA comes as a natural supplement and not only promotes sleep, but can also relieve anxiety, reduce depression symptoms, relieve symptoms of PMS and decrease inflammation.
Lastly, let’s talk about Melatonin (5-20 mg), which is a natural hormone released by your body when the sun goes down to help you relax.
In general, a healthy system produces appropriate amounts of this hormone on its own. But, if your suffering with jet lag or adjusting to work schedule changes, a Melatonin supplement may be the right solution for you.
