DR. WHITAKER Restful Nights Essentials

Scientists are now discovering that without a good sleep night after night, your body actually ages faster. That’s because sleeping is the only chance to fully restore, regenerate and repair the wear and tear that occurs each day. Unfortunately, at least half of us over age 50 experience occasional sleeplessness. This means difficulty falling asleep, waking frequently during the night, or waking too early in the morning.

Restful Night Essentials contains melatonin, which I started recommending over a decade ago. Melatonin is a hormone released by your pituitary gland at night that helps dictate your sleep patterns. Starting at 40, your levels of melatonin can naturally decline or the pattern of its release in your body can change. I’ve found that supplementing with 1mg a night is the optimal amount to regulate sleep patterns. This is the amount in Restful Night Essentials.

While melatonin helps sleep patterns through the night, L-theanine helps you fall asleep faster because it calms your mind.

Whether your thoughts are in overdrive from stress, anxiety, or even excitement, if your mind can’t relax, neither can your body (no matter how exhausted you feel). When you take the amino acid L-theanine, it is believed to promote a relaxing effect on the mind. And when you calm your mind, you’ll fi nd that sleep comes much quicker and far more easily.

The powerful combination of Valerian, Hops and Lemon Balm extracts help to improve sleep latency and quality. It also helps to ease stress and promotes a calming, mood-enhancing effect.
