Where Has All My Sleep Gone?

Sakura Natural Health

 

ZZZZZZ!!!! Sleep is very healthy for us! Are you getting enough sleep at night? Or are you having trouble falling and staying asleep?

We all know that getting enough sleep is good for us and when we don’t get enough sleep, it can affect us and our routines during the day. There are many natural herbs and supplements that can help us. One of these herbs is Passiflora Incarnata, also known as Passionflower.

An interesting fact about Passionflower is that it was first discovered in Peru in the 17th century.  It has long been used for several different ailments and issues, one of those being insomnia caused by nervousness, anxiety, overwork, and stress. There are several properties of this herb that allow it to be quite beneficial to those nights where we are wide-awake.

When we have insomnia, our brain’s activity is hyperactive. Passionflower is used to reduce our brain’s activity by elevating our brain’s levels of GABA. By lowering our brain’s activity, it is most often helpful with sleep irregularities like insomnia. Passionflower is also used to decrease anxiety and stress, which have also been shown to be common triggers in insomnia.

A study performed by Villet S, Vascher V, Colas A, Danno K, Masson JL, Marijnen P, and Bordet MF did an open-label observational study of passionflower for sleep and anxiety (2016). They were able to show that those people who suffer from anxiety and sleep disorders showed significant improvement after taking passionflower.

There are many benefits to using passion flower and it’s key actions are very helpful. The key actions of passionflower are anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmadic, sedative, and tranquilizing. As a cohesive unit, these key actions are what help improve anxiety, stress, and most importantly sleep.

In order to determine whether one of these is the cause of your insomnia, there is a test that is recommended. A panel done by Neuroscience can help us determine your levels of stress, anxiety, and several other issues. This test can help us in determining if passionflower is the right treatment, along with a few other products.

On top of the use of passionflower, there are several products that can help you fall asleep and stay asleep. The first product is Kavinace PM by Neuroscience, which is a strong sleep product. It helps maintain serotonin, GABA, and melatonin levels to promote healthy sleep and help manage anxiousness and stress. The second product is Sleep Formula by Gaia, which aids in falling asleep quickly.
