Good Sleep Means Good Health

The rejuvenation of mind and body starts with a good night’s sleep.  If you’re having trouble reaching the desired 7-9 hours a night, you’re not alone,  it’s estimated that 3.3 million Canadians over the age of 15 have problems getting enough sleep which can harm their health.  A Canadian Community Health Survey found that 18 per cent of these people receive less than five hours of sleep a night.

Lack of sleep can be linked to a number of factors inclduing stress, altered sleep schedules, jet lag or too many distractions.  Not getting enough sleep at night can lead to a weaker immune system, depression, memory fog, inflammation, and a higher risk of disease including breast and colon cancer.

Melatonin, produced in the pneal gland in the cnetre of the brain, is a hormone that tells your brain when your body needs sleep, playing a vital role in overall health.  As you age, your body will produce less melatonin.  At the age of 60, your levels will be half as high as they were at 20.  Leaving the TV on at night, falling asleep to the radio or sleeping with a light on also reduces the amount of melatonin being produced.

Using Melatonin Extra as a supplement before bed can help you get the rest you need.  Here are several sleep benefits of melatonin:

  • Improved sleep quality
  • Increased total sleep time
  • Reduced time trying to fall asleep
  • Help in relieving daytime fatigue
  • Help in re-setting the body’s sleep-wake cycle

By supplementing with melatonin, you can reverse health factors associated with sleep deprivation and get the rejuvenation your body needs.  Unlike sleeping pills, melatonin does not interfere with REM sleep (the drream state), it won’t leave you feeling groggy in the morning and it helps to reset your body’s clock rather then just knocking you out.  It’s time to stop suffering from sleep deprivation and give your body the sleep it needs.
