For some of us, falling asleep is sometimes the most troubling aspect of the sleep cycle. Gaia Herbs Sound Sleep facilitates the transition from wakefulness to sleep — helping reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep.* It combines botanicals historically recognized to address difficulty getting to sleep, by working to normalize the restlessness, physical tension, and worry sometimes associated with occasional sleeplessness.* Because it is provided in liquid Phytocaps, Sound Sleep works fast — entering the bloodstream in 20 minutes.
Getting a restful night’s sleep is essential for optimal health and mental functioning. Adequate sleep strengthens immunity and improves learning and memory. Chronic sleep deprivation can negatively impact heart health, blood pressure, weight, blood sugar balance, and mood. But according to the Centers for Disease Control, between 50 and 70 million American adults have sleep-related issues. Given the magnitude of the problem, it’s obvious that getting enough sleep isn’t always easy. For many people, falling asleep is the most troubling aspect of the sleep cycle. Perhaps their wheels are still spinning due to occasional stress and anxiety, or maybe they have such a type-A personality that their bodies simply have trouble relaxing because they’re constantly primed for action.*
Native Americans used Passionflower to promote sleep, as did 19th century American herbalists.* Modern research, including double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials, has shown that passionflower supports feelings of calm and relaxation and promotes healthy sleep patterns.* Passionflower contains maltol and ethylmaltol, which activate receptors for GABA,* flavonoids, which also activate the GABA system,* and alkaloids harman and harmaline, which are structurally similar to monoaminase inhibitors, which promotes feelings of calm.* Valerian, a popular sleep aide through the centuries, was recommended to promote sleep by the ancient Greek physician Galen.* Valerian is a well-studied herb, supported by many double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials. Results have been generally positive, showing that valerian effectively reduces time needed to fall asleep and improves sleep quality* Components of the herb bind to receptor sites for melatonin and stimulate the release of and inhibit the reuptake of GABA.*
Kava is revered in the South Pacific as a ceremonial herb and for its ability to promote relaxation and relieve occasional stress and sleeplessness.* Research suggests Kava may decrease levels of excitatory neurotransmitters, while boosting levels of calming neurotransmitters, increasing slow brain wave activity, mediating effects in GABA receptors, and even exerting a direct muscle-relaxing effect.* American Skullcap has been used in folk medicine to promote sleep and a calm mood.* Initial studies of Skullcap, as well as a long history of traditional use, suggest that it promotes feelings of calm,* has stress-relieving properties, and promotes normal, healthy sleep.* This may be because skullcap contains GABA and flavonoids that bind to GABA receptors, thus mimicking its effect.*
