Your humble Foodie has many a night that sleep comes on strong after writing and writing these blog posts for what seems like hours, but there is that night where the brain is in overdrive about new topics and what he’s going to write next…
Ever have those nights, where you can’t seem to relax?
LooneyFoodie has you covered.
This product seems safe enough since it only natural ingredients that have been on the market for a very long time. I have taken all of these ingredients in the past with no ill effects, and the combination of them can only provide some sort of relaxing benefit.
Getting Sleepy contains four natural component ingredients that have been proven to be effective for promoting relaxation and sleep.
Getting Sleepy Ingredients
Those four relaxing herbs and nutrients are:
Valerian root is a long time documented sleep aid. It’s called “Nature’s Valium” since it has been used for centuries for relaxation. Unlike some sites that spread misinformation, LooneyFoodie is telling you straight out that Valerian and Valium are NOT RELATED in ANY way. The Foodie has seen sites claim that Valerian was used as the basis for creating Valium, and this is just false! Valium is a synthetic drug, while Valerian is a natural herb. Scientists claim that Valerian root affects the brain by interacting with the GABA receptor, which depresses the central nervous system, causing relaxation and also can be used to combat anxiety.
Melatonin is a popular natural ingredient that people use to defeat sleep problems. Melatonin is a powerful hormone that is produced by the human brain. The brain sometimes doesn’t produce enough on its own. Less melatonin is produced with age, so it can’t hurt to take melatonin as one ages. Melatonin can produce vivid dreams and relaxing sleep, but only take the recommended dose if taking it alone, and make sure that you have the time to actually sleep.
Magnesium is a mineral that is deficient in many a modern diet. It has been stripped from the soil and is not as present in many foods as it once was. Magnesium is a relaxing mineral that even can help reduce stiffness in muscles and arterial walls, lowering blood pressure. Magnesium deficiency can contribute to painful conditions such as muscle cramping and irregular sleeping patterns.
Some researchers believe that the average person should take as much as 1,000 milligrams (divided dose) per day. The recommended daily dosage of 400 milligrams may not be enough for everyone.
Scientific research has shown improvements in people who have taken magnesium supplements. Getting Sleepy helps add some of this nutrient back into the daily diet.
L-Tryptophan is an important amino acid that can help cut down restlessness and aid sleep. L-Tryptophan is a nutrient that the body uses to synthesize the chemical, serotonin. Serotonin is a mood chemical that the brain uses in a variety of ways, and restful sleep comes into play. A change in serotonin can have drastic effects on people, which is why Getting Sleepy can be effective. It takes that person who may be producing too much or too little serotonin and may help even out the production. The result can be a person who has a more regular sleep cycle.
Serotonin also comes into play in overall mood, anxiety, and depression (or lack thereof) and is something that is targeted by the anti depressant medications in the class called SSRI’s, or Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors, meaning that more serotonin floating around in the brain generally means a happier calmer person. Get the connection yet?
L-Tryptophan is also high in turkey meat, which is why they say that people sleep better after a turkey dinner. SOme people say that it’s all the carbs that are a part of turkey dinners, but it IS generally accepted that Tryptophan relaxes people and can contribute to a sleepy condition.
The Getting Sleepy Conclusion
So, Getting Sleepy is made up of all of these wonderful ingredients that synergistically combine to create a supplement that one can safely use to promote relaxation and sleep. It might also be a good anti anxiety pill as well.
This is a great way to experiment without first resorting to powerful and expensive pharmaceuticals, which may have nasty side effects. SSRI’s can contribute to feelings of suicide and prescription sleep aids can be dangerous in other ways, and become addictive.
Getting Sleepy is a natural combination of nature’s sleep chest, and you don’t have to worry about addiction, or throwing hormones out of whack with this natural product.
The manufacturer also does take part in free samples, so it makes sense to try Getting Sleepy since there is nothing in the ingredient list to cause particular worry .
Looney Foodie does recommend, however, that if you ARE on medications, to check any possible issues with THOSE medications that you do take and any possible interactions with the ingredients in Getting Sleepy.
Aside from that, have a restful sleep!
