Can't Sleep? Try A Natural Insomnia Treatment. sleep 1

Sleep All Nite Naturals™ is specifically formulated to support those individuals that suffer from insomnia and sleeplessness. Insomnia and Sleeplessness effects millions of individuals, and can cripple your ability to lead a productive life. Our formula has helped many individuals maintain their sleep. Deficiencies in certain vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes may disrupt sleep. Calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, folic acid and melatonin deficiencies may impair sleep. Why is it that some people, even when thoroughly exhausted, cannot seem to find their way to a deep and recuperative sleep? Waking up feeling exausted and groggy definitely puts a damper on your entire day. Sleep All Nite Naturals is a safe, all natural, and non-habit forming insomnia remedy.*

Our Ingredients Proven to Get Results:

Sleep All Nite Naturals™ contains a unique blend of natural ingredients that have all been shown to support relaxation and sleep. The ability to relax at night is crucial for a good night's sleep; after all, even if you fall asleep but are unable to relax, you do not wake up rested. Instead you wake up tired and even more stressed than the day before. Melatonin and valerian are just two of the herbs used in Sleep All Nite Naturals. See below for a complete list of ingredients.

Of 12 Natural Ingredients, here are the TOP FIVE Most Important Ingredients known to support Improved Sleep:

1. Melatonin : Melatonin is a natural compound produced by the body to convey the message that it is night and the body should go to rest. As such melatonin has a sleep inducing effect on your brain. Taking a supplement, such as Sleep All Nite Naturals™ . Contains natural melatonin that supports your body and strengthens your biological clock and maintains your sleep cycles.

Melatonin is associated with getting a good night's sleep. Sunset triggers heightened melatonin secretion from the pineal gland; and these levels normally subside with sunrise, thereby regulating periods of sleep and wakefulness. When this biological clock, known as circadian rhythm, is disrupted, sleeping can be difficult, and supplemental melatonin may help improve sleeping patterns. Melatonin supplements may be of use for certain insomnias and circadian rhythm sleep disorders Specifically, melatonin supplements taken at the same time each night supports normal sleep.

2. L-Tryptophan : Tryptophan occurs naturally in the body and is an amino acid. Its main function is to manufacture serotonin, (a neurotransmitter) in the brain which helps promote better sleep. Serotonin is a precursor of melatonin, so necessary for healthy sleep patterns. Tryptophan is an amino acid that plays a key role in the repair of protein tissues and in creating new protein. In the brain, tryptophan is converted into serotonin, a natural sleep-inducing chemical. It also enhances the brain's ability to produce melatonin, the hormone that regulates your body's natural inner clock.*

3. Valerian Root Extract : Valerian is a natural herb derived from the root of the valerian plant. It has been used for centuries to support relaxation and sleep in a natural fashion. Many people experience sleeplessness when they are under stress, Valerian's relaxing effect helps those individuals to fall asleep more readily. Valerian is known for calming the nerves and maintain restful sleep. *

4. Magnesium : Magnesium deficiency is responsible for nervousness in some people. The lack of magnesium can cause leg cramps during the night. Magnesium also produces a calming effect on the brain and is essential for maintaining healthy sleep.

5. Inositol: Inositol enhances REM sleep and supports the inability to fall back asleep after middle of night awakening. Also, can exert a calming tranquilizing effect for anxiety.*

6. Chamomile: Chamomile has been used throughout the ages. Unlike some herbal sleep remedies, chamomile does not have to be used on a regular basis. It can be used on the spot. It has been found that chamomile can be especially helpful in supporting the relief of the symptoms of mild insomnia. Chrysin, a flavonoid component of Chamomile, is the chemical attributed to Chamomile's ability to relieve anxiety and maintain normal sleep.

7. Vitamin B-6: and B-6: This multi-purpose vitamin is involved in more than 100 different chemical and metabolic processes that our body performs every day - it is involved in the production of amino acids, hormones, and neurotransmitters.

Of particular interest is vitamin B6's function in sleep: low levels of this vitamin have been linked with chronic insomnia. In fact, vitamin B6 supplement is often used to treat sleeplessness. The additional health benefits of vitamin B6 are wide-ranging: it helps protect the skin, fight depression, and relieve PMS symptoms, and so on.

8. Niacin: Because it dilates blood vessels, Niacin brings more oxygen to the brain. Niacin's basic function is to assist in the cell's utilization of all major nutrients. Without question, niacin is one of the most important factors in keeping us moving toward optimal health. Niacin is a mild vasodilator, which means that it widens blood vessels and increases blood flow. Niacin is very important for many reasons, but especially for its striking effect upon the circulatory and nervous systems.. Niacin, or vitamin B3, is essential for many of our organs, including skin, nerves, and digestive organs.

9. Vitamin C- The body requires vitamin C to form and maintain bones, blood vessels, and skin. Like other vitamins, vitamin C is an organic compound. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, one that cannot be stored by the body except in insignificant amounts. It must be replenished daily. Vitamin C helps produce collagen, a protein needed to develop and maintain healthy teeth, bones, gums, cartilage, vertebrae discs, joint linings, skin and blood vessels. Vitamin C promotes the healing of cuts, abrasions and wounds. Importantly, Vitamin C appears to dilate (widen, enlarge) blood vessels and thereby aid healthier sleep patterns.

10, 11. & 12. Cellulose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Silicon Dioxide and Magnesium Stearate: These additional ingredients support more restful sleep.

What is REM Sleep all About

REM sleep is a stage of sleep characterized by a number of features including rapid, low-voltage brain waves detectable on the electroencephalographic (EEG) recording, irregular breathing and heart rate and involuntary muscle jerks. Dreams occur during REM sleep.

We typically have 3 to 5 periods of REM sleep per night. They occur at intervals of 1-2 hours and are quite variable in length. An episode of REM sleep may last 5 minutes or over an hour. About 20% of sleep is REM sleep. If you sleep 7-8 hours a night, perhaps an hour and half of that time, 90 minutes, is REM sleep. By contrast, NREM (non-REM) sleep is dreamless sleep. During NREM, the brain waves on the EEG are typically slow and of high voltage, the breathing and heart rate are slow and regular, the blood pressure is low, and the sleeper is relatively still. NREM sleep is divided into 4 stages of increasing depth of sleep leading to REM sleep. About 80% of sleep is NREM sleep. If you sleep 7-8 hours a night, all but maybe an hour and a half is spent in dreamless NREM sleep.

We Are All Sleeping Less ? Are All becoming Insomniacs?

A recent study found 38 percent of U.S. adults said they were sleeping less than they were just five years earlier. Americans now average less than seven hours of sleep per night, and close to 60 percent now report they have trouble sleeping at least a few nights every week.

One of the biggest sleep problems of all, however, is work - the work ethic gone bad. To accommodate the relentless pressure for productivity, we're sleeping less and spending less time in social and leisure pursuits; the resulting stress can steal away even more sleep.

The need for sleep, anchored in part to the most ancient of man's rhythms, is etched deeply in our brains. When we interrupt the natural rhythm of day and night for any reason -- we risk setting off a cascade of problems. What we do at night affects everything we do during the day -- our ability to learn, our skills, our memory, stamina, health and safety. Most of all, it affects our mood: Chronic sleep disruption appears to be the single biggest trigger for depression!

Everyone has a troubled night sometimes, or even a run of them, which happens to the average person about once a year. It's part of being human, subject to stress and worry. But it's what we do in response to it, experts say that determines whether we will wind up with chronic insomnia.

Experts generally apply the "30-30 rule". It's insomnia if it takes you 30 minutes or more to fall asleep or if you're awake for 30 or more minutes during the night -- at least three times a week. No matter how little you sleep, it isn't insomnia unless it drags you down during the day. Those who have trouble falling asleep or waking up may not technically have insomnia but instead be suffering from something know as "sleep-phase disorder." In this case, people have unwittingly trained themselves to conk out at the wrong time Sleep patterns also shift during life.

Insomnia typically starts innocently enough. Something gives you one bad night -- or a few bad nights. After one bad night, most people experience a great deal of frustration and anxiety about falling asleep and staying asleep. So you try to compensate. You nap in the afternoon or go to bed early. Or you sleep late the next morning, or you have a couple of drinks before bed. That only makes matters worse. You go to bed and, without the accumulated need for sleep, you stare at the ceiling half the night Now you're even more tired and worried about the consequences of not sleeping than you were the day before -- while you're at your greatest vulnerability to irrational thought. Is this, you worry, the beginning of decrepitude?

Pretty soon, this self-defeating cycle takes on a life of its own. Under the influence of anxiety, your brain learns very quickly, without your knowledge or consent, to associate the bedroom with wakefulness. You lie down to rest and your brain goes on high alert. "It has been shown that people who have difficulty falling asleep are supersensitive to bedroom-related stimuli," explains an expert.

Five Misconceptions about Sleep

People may have misconceptions about what causes us to sleep, what occurs during sleep, how our body responds to a lack of sleep, and what function(s) sleep fulfills.

Misconception 1: Sleep is time for the body in general and the brain specifically to shut down for rest.
Sleep is an active process involving specific cues for its regulation. Although there are some modest decreases in metabolic rate, there is no evidence that any major organ or regulatory system in the body shuts down during sleep. Some brain activity, including delta waves, increases dramatically. Also, the endocrine system increases secretion of certain hormones during sleep, such as growth hormone and prolactin. In REM sleep , many parts of the brain are as active as at any time when awake.

Misconception 2: Getting just one hour less sleep per night than needed will not have any effect on daytime functioning.
When daily sleep time is less than an individual needs, a "sleep debt" develops. Even relatively modest daily reductions in sleep time (for example, one hour) can accumulate across days to cause a sleep debt. If the debt becomes too great, it can lead to problem sleepiness. Although the individual may not realize his or her sleepiness, the sleep debt can have powerful effects on daytime performance, thinking, and mood.

Misconception 3: The body adjusts quickly to different sleep schedules.
The biological clock that times and controls a person's sleep/wake cycle will attempt to function according to a normal day/night schedule even when that person tries to change it. Those who work night shifts naturally feel sleepy when nighttime comes. A similar feeling that occurs during travel is known as jet lag. This conflict, set up by trying to be active during the brain's biological nighttime, leads to a decrease in cognitive and motor skills. The biological clock can be reset, but only by appropriately timed cues and even then, by one to two hours per day at best. Problems resulting from a mismatch of this type may be reduced by behaviors such as sleeping in a dark, quiet room, getting exposure to bright light at the right time, and altering eating and exercise patterns. Because humans function best when they sleep at night and act in the daytime, the task for a person who must be active at night is to retrain the biological clock (by light cues).

Misconception 4: People need less sleep as they grow older.
Older people don't need less sleep, but they often get less sleep. That's because the ability to sleep for long periods of time and to get into the deep, restful stages of sleep decreases with age. Many older people have more fragile sleep and are more easily disturbed by light, noise, and pain than when younger. They are also more likely to have medical conditions that contribute to sleep problems.

Misconception 5: A good night’s sleep can cure problems with excessive daytime sleepiness.
Excessive daytime sleepiness can be associated with a sleep disorder or other medical condition. Sleep disorders, including sleep apnea (that is, absence of breathing during sleep), insomnia, and narcolepsy, may require behavioral, pharmacological, or even surgical intervention to relieve the symptoms. Extra sleep may not eliminate daytime sleepiness that may be due to such disorders.

The Solution is Sleep All Nite Naturals - How it works

This scientifically advanced all-natural supplement contains the nutritional requirements that help the body maintain normal sleep patterns. By providing the body's natural sleep hormone melatonin, plus a collection of calming herbs, phytomedicinals and key nutrients, the body is encouraged to naturally eliminate restlessness, anxiety, as well as persistent sleeplessness and insomnia. Sleep All Nite Naturals complements the body's natural ability to support fast, safe and deep sleep - like the kind we experienced when we were children.

The ingredients contained within this formula also offer some of the factors which the body uses to make the neurotransmitter called "serotonin," which influences neurons that control such diverse activities as sleep, mood and appetite.

Sleep All Nite Naturals supplies the body the proper nutritional support, the vital and normal sleep pattern of dreaming can be preserved and indeed enhanced. Interestingly, "sleeping pills" using conventional drug therapy have proven to cause fewer and shorter periods of dreaming than found in normal sleep.*

Discover A Natural Solution That Works!

Many Americans are now making the choice of better sleep patterns through the use natural medicibetter sleep patterns through the use natural medicines. Many people have resorted to drinking coffee or taking stimulants throughout the day to make up for lack of sleep quality. What this does is just contribute to that cycle of sleep by upsetting the delicate balance of sleep and hours awake. .

If you are consistently deprived of a good night's sleep you may feel like you are in a mental fog all
day. Even worse, lack of quality sleep is a known cause and influence depression, anxiety and stress. Sleep All Nite Naturals delivers a high caliber of sleep quality, so you can begin each day refreshed, mentally focused, and more energetic. Sleep is the body's way of repairing and recuperating its. It renews your bodily
processes and functions on a nightly basis. By not having this important self-
repair system, you are greatly jeopardizing your physical and mental well being. Without it, you cannot
function normally, and are more prone to emotional and mental problems, all of which profoundly
impact our quality of life.

What causes Insomnia?

There are many potential causes of insomnia, including sleep apnea, snoring, bladder or prostate problems, stress or depression. People who are over 60 years old are more prone to insomnia, probably due to decreased levels of melatonin in the brain. Other causes of insomnia include 'restless legs' syndrome (RLS), magnesium or iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, shift time at work or excessive consumption of caffeine or other stimulants. Insomnia is also a side effect of some prescription anti-depressant medication. It is thought that more than 50% of all cases of insomnia are linked to psychological causes , including depression, anxiety and stress. Prescription sleeping medication can be addictive and can affect your ability to fall asleep naturally.

How To Get That Good Night’s Sleep

Of course It doesn't help to have someone TELL you to get a good nights sleep. It does no good to just lie down in bed and stay awake, either. Here are some techniques that will help you get to sleep more quickly and without drugs.

1. Read a book or magazine. This will slow down your mind while relaxing your body.
2. Get some fresh air . Open a window, walk the dog, step outside for a few minutes.
3. Try some quite, moderate exercise , such as isometrics, yoga, or stretches.
4. Get more L- tryptophan in your body . L- tryptophan is one of the essential amino acids that your body uses to make "sleep" neurotransmitters such as serotonin and melatonin. These neurotransmitters are messengers that help your brain shut down for the night. They also help you be fully awake during the day. Foods such as seafood, chicken, milk, cheese, yogurt, beans and cashews are foods that are high in L- tryptophan foods. But an easier approach is to get the suggested correct daily dosage of L - tryptophan that is provided in our Sleep All Nite Naturals™ .
5 . Use a sleep aid. Vitamin B-3 as Niacin will help induce sleep . Taking between 5 to 10 milligrams about 20 minutes before bedtime usually works best.

One of the best things about natural sleep aids is that they are healthy and safe. They not habit forming and when your brain and body are better nourished, more restful sleep will be the natural result. You are feeding your body the right elements, not drugging it.

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Sleep Medication?

1. We get way too much prescription medication in general. Enough prescriptions are written in the US to provide each person with 7 individual medications for a year!

2. Reported by the National Academy of Sciences, 8.5 MILLION Americans take prescription sleeping pills that can be addictive

3. Enough VALIUM has been sold in ONE year to provide 145 pills for every man, woman and child in the U.S.A. This figure is based on purchases from doctors' prescriptions. Valium is the most widely prescribed drug in America . It often causes weight gain, nausea, constipation, fetal dependency. Valium is popular because the manufacturer spent 200 MILLION DOLLARS in ten years to promote it.

Sleep is a natural process, and natural supplements can be the solution. It is time for us to start just saying no to excessively prescribed drugs.

Sleep is a Cyclical Process

During sleep, people experience repeated cycles of NREM and REM sleep, beginning with an NREM phase. This cycle lasts approximately 90 to 110 minutes and is repeated four to six times per night. As the night progresses, however, the amount of deep NREM sleep decreases and the amount of REM sleep increases. The figure below graphically depicts the pattern of sleep cycling we experience. The term ultradian rhythm (that is, rhythm occurring within a period of less than 24 hours) is used to describe this cycling through sleep stages.


A typical hypnogram from a young, healthy adult. Light-gray areas represent non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep.

The periods of NREM and REM sleep alternate during the night. The deepest stages of NREM sleep occur in the first part of the night and the episodes of REM sleep are longer as the night progresses.

Sleep deprivation in older adults can lead to an increased decline in health and even earlier death. REM is an active period of sleep characterized by interval brain activity and rapid bursts of eye movement. REM is the brain wave stage of dreaming sleep (known as the the theta stage) that is characterized by increased creativity, memory, healing and integrative emotional experience. There is no doubt that REM sleep contributes to the development of human imagination and consciousness.

Sleep Patterns Change during an Individual's Life.

In fact, age affects sleep more than any other natural factor. Newborns sleep an average of 16 to 18 hours per day. One of the most prominent age-related changes in sleep is a reduction in the time spent in the deepest stages of NREM (Stages 3 and 4) from childhood through adulthood. In fact, this change is prominent during adolescence, when about 40 percent of this activity is lost and replaced by Stage 2 NREM sleep. In addition to these changes, the percentage of time spent in REM sleep also changes during development.

Elderly individuals exhibit more variation in the duration and quality of sleep than do younger adults. Elderly people may also exhibit increased sleep fragmentation (arousals from sleep that occur as either short or more extended awakenings). The figure below depicts these developmental changes in sleep patterns.                     

Sleeping Reinforces Your Memory

During the course of a day we are inundated with experiences, some of which should be remembered while others need not be. Perhaps sleep aids in rearranging all of the experiences and thoughts from the day so that those that are important are stored and those that are not are discarded. People who get plenty of deep NREM sleep in the first half of the night and REM sleep in the second half improve their ability to perform spatial tasks. This suggests that the full night's sleep plays a role in learning -- not just one kind of sleep or the other.

About 30 to 40 percent of adults indicate some degree of sleep loss within any given year, and about 10 to 15 percent of people indicate that their sleep loss is chronic or severe. In addition, millions of Americans experience problems sleeping because of undiagnosed sleep disorders. Sleep and wakefulness are linked in part to the activity of the circadian clock. Sleep loss can cause problems with memory and attention, complex thought, motor responses to stimuli, and controlling emotions. Sleep loss may also alter thermoregulation and increase the risk for various physical and mental disorders.

Sleep loss affects personal safety on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has estimated that approximately 100,000 motor vehicle crashes each year result from a driver's drowsiness or fatigue while at the wheel. Driving at night or in the early to mid afternoon increases the risk of a crash because those are times that our biological clocks make us sleepy. Drowsy driving impairs a driver's reaction time, vigilance, and ability to make sound judgments.

4 Sleep Disorders You May Experience

Problem sleepiness is feeling sleepy at inappropriate times.

Problems with sleep can be due to lifestyle choices and can result in problem sleepiness -- that is, feeling sleepy at inappropriate times. Environmental noise, temperature changes, changes in sleeping surroundings, and other factors may affect our ability to get sufficient restful sleep. Short-term problem sleepiness may be corrected by getting additional sleep to overcome the sleep deficit. In other cases, problem sleepiness may indicate a sleep disorder requiring medical intervention.

These are 4 of the most common sleep disorders:

· Insomnia , the most prevalent sleep disorder, is characterized by an inability to fall asleep and/or by waking up during the night and having difficulty going back to sleep. Primary insomnia is more common in women than men and increases with age. Short-term or transient insomnia may be caused by emotional or physical discomfort, stress, environmental noise, extreme temperatures, or may be the side effect of medication. Secondary insomnia may result from a combination of physical or mental disorders, undiagnosed or uncontrolled sleep disorders (that is, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy, and circadian rhythm disorders), and effects of prescription medications. Sleep All Nite Naturals offer support for both primary and secondary causes of insomnia. Treatment may include behavioral aspects, such as following a specific nighttime routine, improving sleep environment, reducing caffeine and alcohol intake, or reducing afternoon napping. Some individuals try to overcome the problem of insomnia by drinking alcoholic beverages. Don't-alcohol inhibits REM sleep and the deeper, restorative stages of sleep, and therefore does not promote good, deep sleep.

· Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a potentially life-threatening disorder in which breathing is interrupted during sleep. An estimated 12 million Americans have OSA. This condition may be associated with bony and soft tissue that limits airway dimensions and is made worse in the presence of excess fatty tissue. Repetitive episodes of no effective breath, very shallow breaths, or adequate breaths but with high airway resistance can occur 20 to 30 times per hour or more. These episodes cause temporary drops in blood oxygen and increases in carbon dioxide levels, which lead to frequent partial arousals from sleep. Limitations in upper-airway dimensions are typically associated with chronic loud snoring. The frequent arousals result in ineffective sleep and account for the chronic sleep deprivation and the resultant excessive daytime sleepiness that is a major hallmark of this condition. Additional effects include morning headaches, high blood pressure, heart attacks, heart-rhythm disorders, stroke, and decreased life expectancy

· Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is a neurological movement disorder that is often associated with a sleep complaint. People with RLS have unpleasant leg sensations and an almost irresistible urge to move the legs. Symptoms are worse during inactivity and interfere with sleep. RLS sufferers also report experiencing creeping, crawling, pulling, or tingling sensations in the legs (or sometimes the arms) that are relieved by moving or rubbing them. Sitting still for long periods becomes difficult; symptoms are usually worse in the evening and less severe in the morning. Periodic leg movements, which often coexist with restless legs syndrome, are characterized by repetitive limb movements during sleep. Estimates suggest that RLS may affect between 10 and 15 percent of the population.

· Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder that usually becomes evident during adolescence or young adulthood and can affect both men and women. In the United States , it affects as many as 250,000 people, although fewer than half are diagnosed. The main characteristic of narcolepsy is excessive and overwhelming daytime sleepiness (even after adequate nighttime sleep). A person with narcolepsy is likely to become drowsy or to fall asleep at inappropriate times and places. Daytime sleep attacks may occur with or without warning and may be irresistible. In addition, nighttime sleep may also be fragmented.
