“The Missing Link to a Peaceful Night’s Sleep” ——- Beyond melatonin or valerian. This simple ”nutrient cocktail” can help you sleep like a baby … without grogginess the next day.
Imbalance #1: too much stress and anxiety It’s hard to escape stress these days. With our 24/7, non-stop always connected lifestyles; we’re constantly having to deal with issues at home or at work. You may find it hard to switch off your worries about health, money, job security, retirement, or your children and grandchildren.The trouble is, this constant stress causes your body to release cortisol. That’s the “fight or flight” hormone I mentioned before. But cortisol doesn’t just get you ready to slay a wild animal. It can also cause sleep problems. That’s because cortisol is your body’s “wake up” hormone. Your cortisol levels jump by 50 to 60 percent within minutes of waking up each morning. So the last thing you want is to have high cortisol at nighttime. Ideally, your cortisol levels should gradually decrease during the day, reaching the lowest point just before bedtime. But if you’re constantly stressed or over stimulated during the day… … Your cortisol levels get stuck in high gear! Constant high cortisol can make it difficult to fall asleep. It can prevent you from getting deep, restful sleep. And too much cortisol can wake you up in the middle of the night. In fact, studies show that people with sleep problems had the highest amount of cortisol in their bloodstream, especially in the evening. So if you want to improve your sleep, you need to reduce your cortisol. Regular exercise helps. So do stress-reducing activities like yoga or meditation. But there’s another way… Nature’s Stress Buster You don’t have to sedate yourself with drugs to lower your stress levels. Or dump hormones like melatonin into your system. What I prefer to do with my patients is to give them the nutrients the body needs to manufacture its own “natural sleep medicine.” That way, it supports your body’s own ability to regulate your excitatory and calming mechanism. And one of the best ways to do that is with niacin amide … also known as vitamin B3.
Imbalance #2 – Aching muscles and cramps that keep you awake Many people take calcium to help maintain strong bones. Some people take it at bedtime. That may sound like a good idea, since your body loses calcium at night, but it’s not. That’s because calcium can make you feel anxious, and it causes your muscles to contract. Calcium can also contribute to restless leg syndrome and leg cramps that can wake you up in the middle of the night and keep you up. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution for aching muscles and cramps: magnesium. Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer and sedative. In fact, magnesium often reverses restless leg syndrome and cramping in both your legs and feet. Of course, achy muscles and cramps aren’t the only thing that can keep you up at night…
Imbalance #3: What to do if your mind keeps racing Do you sometimes crawl into bed feeling drowsy and ready to sleep? But then lay awake, eyes staring at the ceiling, as your mind races over details from your day … or worries about tomorrow? There’s a natural solution for this problem, too. And it comes from a surprising source. In fact, it’s why a lot of people feel so relaxed after drinking a cup of green tea, despite the fact that green tea has caffeine. Green tea also contains the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine can blunt the stimulating effects of caffeine, and has an overall calming effect. A number of studies, including double-blind clinical trials, show that L-theanine calms you down and reduces the stress and anxiety caused by everyday life. Studies also show that L-theanine helps increase “alpha-wave” activity in your brain. Alpha waves correspond to the same state of calm relaxation that you feel with meditation and yoga. So taking L-theanine is like getting a mini-dose of meditation for calming down your mind and promoting deep, restful sleep! Aside from dealing with stress, anxiety, and a mind that just won’t quit, you also have to make sure your body isn’t lacking its natural “sleep aids”, including…
Imbalance #4: Not enough serotonin Serotonin is your body’s natural “feel good” neurotransmitter. It helps regulate your mood and appetite as well as your sleep. If you crave sweets and high glycemic carbohydrates like cookies, crackers and potato chips, then you might have a serotonin deficiency. You are also more likely to have a serotonin deficiency if you’re a woman. A serotonin deficiency can cause you to struggle with worry, anxiety, obsession, winter blues, and low self-esteem. People with a serotonin deficiency often have sleep problems. Here’s why… During the day, your body slowly converts serotonin into melatonin. Your body stores this melatonin inside your pineal gland. When daylight turns to night, it signals your pineal gland to release the melatonin. The melatonin then helps you fall asleep. But if your serotonin levels are too low during the daytime, your melatonin levels will be too low at night. But you don’t have to take melatonin to correct this… A simple, natural way to increase your serotonin and melatonin One of the best ways to reverse a serotonin deficiency is to take a natural amino acid called 5HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan). 5-HTP is the “precursor” to serotonin. That means it’s the final step in your body’s production process for serotonin. So by taking 5-HTP, you bypass the conversion of other molecules and directly produce more serotonin. Several double-blind studies show 5-HTP decreases the time needed to fall asleep and reduces the number of nighttime awakenings. 5-HTP also improves the quality of your sleep. 5-HTP increases REM sleep by about 25 percent and boosts your deep, restorative sleep. And 5-HTP does this without increasing total sleep time.
