Sleep Supplements: What Causes Sleep Disorders

What Causes Sleep Disorders?

Studies show that most sleep problems can be blamed on an overactive brain. When your levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) lowers in your brain, your brain activity naturally increases. Which can cause difficulty in falling, and staying asleep.

Just what is GABA?

“Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain. Neurotransmitters function as chemical messengers. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system.”

​A bad diet, stress, or even genetics can cause the GABA levels in your brain to decrease.
As your GABA levels decrease, your brain activity increases.​This increase in brain activity caused by low GABA levels is linked to anxiety and low-quality sleep.

Other common factors that can add to your trouble sleeping are consuming too many stimulants, medication, allergies and chronic discomfort.

Natural Sleep Supplements 

The best ingredients should be able to increase GABA levels, and reduce stress and tension in your body. There are 4 essential ingredients:

VALERIANA OFFICINALIS – is a beautiful looking Asian herb that was actually used in WW2 for sleep and relaxation. It is known as an anti-anxiety and sleeping herb that has been used for centuries. It works by increasing GABA levels naturally. Some studies show that this herb can even be beneficial for Menopause and Menstrual problems.

CHAMOMILE ​- Best known as Matricaria Chamomilla has long been associated with helping people have a good night’s rest. In a double placebo group study with 60 elderly people, there was a significant increase in the sleep quality of those who took the chamomile extracts compared to the placebo group.

PASSION FLOWER – or commonly known as Passiflora Incarnata, ​is also shown to boost the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in your brain. A naturally produced compound known to lower brain activity.

BLUE SKULLCAP – or also know as Scutellaria Laterifolia,​ is a tasty flower in the mint family that may boost mood and reduce anxiety, according to a recent study that involved 43 people.

We also gave heavy favoritism to liquid extracts. We found that another underlying reason why most sleep products don’t work is because the ingredients used are generally pressed into pills or packed into capsules that don’t absorb in your gut well enough.

Studies have shown that the body uses 98% of liquids. The body only uses 39-53% of capsules or tablets.
