Frequently asked questions about NZ Pure Health Sleep Well
Q. What is Insomnia?
A. Insomnia and sleep disorders have many causes; they are characterized by difficulty in falling and/or staying asleep. Sleeplessness may be caused by stress and anxiety, lifestyle changes, external influences, ill health or nutritional deficiencies.
Hops (Humulus lupulus), often associated with beer production, has been shown to have a soporific effect and reduce night time activity. Also used for anxiety, inability to sleep, restlessness, tension, excitability, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), nervousness, and irritability.
Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata) was used traditionally in the Americas and later in Europe as a calming herb for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria. It is still used today to treat anxiety and insomnia.
Skull Cap or American skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), has been used for more than 200 years as a mild relaxant and as a therapy for anxiety, nervous tension, and convulsions.
Minerals can help to relieve the symptoms of stress and nervous tension and B Vitamins are necessary for healthy nerve function.
Q. How do the nutrients support nerve function?
A. Minerals and vitamins are essential for nerve function and producing neurotransmitters in the central nervous system. Vitamins B1, B3 and B6, and inositol play important roles in energy production. Collectively the minerals, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc are co-factors in virtually every biochemical pathway throughout the body. While herbs such as Hops, Passion Flower and Valerian Root are thought to act on the brain to produce biochemicals, that control mood and anxiety. Scientists believe these herbs work by increasing levels of a chemical called gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA lowers the activity of some brain cells, making you feel more relaxed.
Our home grown saffron sourced from Southland has properties known to improve sleep quality and aid insomnia. Saffron extract may increase dopamine levels in the brain without changing the levels of other brain hormones, such as serotonin.
