Most natural sleep remedies are generally safe, having few to no side effect. As a result, consumers take them with confidence. Natural sleep aids are capable of relaxing tense muscles, soothe nerves, and decrease feelings of restlessness and anxiety, enabling one to fall asleep faster.
Dr Sharon Plank, with the University of Pittsburgh Medical School Center for Integrative Medicine, advised WebMd valerian and melatonin have good scientific evidence backing them up. Because there are few adverse effects from valerian, it is a safe sleep aid endeavor, says Plank. To help to relax, the doctor also advises 100 to 400 milligrams of magnesium. “I don’t know of studies of magnesium for sleep, but in my experience it helps,” she tells WebMD. Melatonin is a natural hormone that helps regulate the sleep cycle. With advancing age oftentimes, natural melatonin levels are reduced. Stress is an immense upset to the body’s natural clock. Melatonin is a primary factor in keeping natural sleep patterns though it is a complex process.
The natural sleep aid Ambitropin has received positive results from users. Ambitropin ingredients include the aforementioned valerian root and melatonin in conjunction with Hops, Lavender, B6, and Calcium. The developers claim a lengthy research process resulted in this safe and effective natural sleep aid. While they do not admit to negative side effects being reported, they recommend potential customers consult with a physician before use.
Personally, I prefer natural remedies to scientific medications whenever possible. Take for example chamomile tea. It has been a soothing, relaxing remedy for thousands of years. I found chamomile tea to be very effective. Lavender aromatherapy has helped me with migraines on more than one occasion. Having used light blocking lavender eye pillows, claims lavender decreases EEG and alertness proved true in my case. Relaxation and the removal of light were vital to relieving those migraines!
With many advertised natural sleeping pills available, I believe Ambitropin would be my first choice of a natural sleep aids. In addition to being comfortable with the ingredients, I also consider that melatonin and lavender are a winning combination.
