3-Brains Restful Sleep 90 Veg Capsules
Restful Sleep combines four herbal extracts that have traditionally been used in herbal medicine to promote calmness and support healthy sleep. Passionflower extract (Passiflora incarnata), California poppy extract (Eschscholzia californica), skullcap extract (Scutellaria lateriflora), and linden extract (Tilia cordata) are all valued for their natural sedative effects that promote healthy sleep. Passionflower, California poppy, and skullcap all have anxiolytic effects, promoting overall mental calmness. California poppy also has analgesic properties, which may help ease physical pains that can inhibit or interrupt sleep.
In addition to oxygen and good nutrition, our bodies require sufficient sleep, in order to support healthy cognitive function, including healthy mood and coping with stress, as well as keeping the body’s immune system strong. However, as many as one in seven Canadians experience insomnia. Stress support plays an important role in the management of sleep problems. Restful Sleep can be used to counteract the feelings of anxiety and nervousness that can inhibit sleep.
Restful Sleep is part of the Three Brains line of supplements which take a whole-body approach to optimal brain health. According to Karen Jensen, ND, author of Three Brains: How the Heart, Brain, and Gut Influence Mental Health and Identity, “There is growing evidence that nutrients from whole foods, exercise, and supplements are effective, non-invasive ways to support mental health and cognition.”
