Sleep is essential for good health and quality of life; without it, the body is unable to restore and repair. On average, Canadians sleep one hour less than they did 25 years ago, and millions of Canadians have trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep, or waking up rested. Insomnia is often caused or worsened by lifestyle factors such as stress, lack of exercise, and poor diet, but there is hope: Melatonin Plus from Webber Naturals supports a better night’s sleep.
Melatonin Plus combines three natural health products that are used as relaxants and sleep aids: 5-HTP (a plant-sourced amino acid), L-theanine (a compound found in green tea), and melatonin (a hormone). These sleep supporters come in delicious, naturally flavoured, chewable tablets, helping to temporarily promote relaxation and reset the body’s sleep-wake cycle.
This formula is a great choice for people who have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. It helps increase the total sleep time in those suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule, such as shift-workers, and helps relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Although not habit-forming, those with chronic insomnia should consult with a physician to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
