The UKs Best Sleep Supplement

Why Is Sleep Important?

Sleep is important because it is a fundamental factor for someones overall health and well-being. This being said sleep is just as important as a healthy diet and regular exercise. In the UK, it is said that the average Brit only sleeps 6.17 hours a night. This is definitely not enough, when the majority of people should try and get at least seven to nine hours a night. 

What are sleep supplements?

Sleep supplements are usually taken daily to help people get a better night sleep, by improving their sleep quality and duration. These types of supplements tend to include herbal or natural ingredients. An example of some ingredients commonly used in sleep supplements include Lemon Balm, Valerian Root, Passion Flower, Montmorency Cherry and Chamomile, which all help improve sleep in a variety of ways. In the UK and even around the world some people use some sleep supplements containing 5-HTP or Melatonin, but don’t actually know that these can actually cause you more harm in the long run

What are the best minerals and vitamins supplements to help with sleep?

When people think of minerals and vitamins, they often believe they are used to give people more energy, to improve mental clarity and to fight off sickness. But often people oversee the benefits such vitamins and minerals can do when it comes to improving ones overall sleep quality. The below list shows these ingredients:

  • Magnesium  
    • This is perhaps the most important mineral or vitamin, when it comes to improving sleep. The nutrient is often used for its calming affects, reducing stress and  helping you sleep longer. This comes to no surprise when it has been labeled as “the the most powerful relaxation mineral available”. 
  • Zinc                  
    • Zinc is also an important trace mineral that has numerous benefits. If taken consistently, it has a calming affect, reduces wake-ups in the night, supports vital bodily functions and the immune system.
  • Vitamin B6
    • Vitamin B6 has a magnitude of health benefit, including boosting immunity, brain health and improving mood. It is mentioned that a lack of vitamin B6 has been linked to symptoms of insomnia and depression, due to the fact it aids the production of vital hormones such as serotonin and melatonin. 

What are the best herbal supplements to help with sleep?

Natural and herbal ingredients are a very popular solution to help people improve their sleep. That is one particular reason why Revitalifes –  Night Support have included up to 4 different sleep herbal ingredients. The below list will outline some to help you find the right sleep supplement for you:

  1. Montmorency Cherry
  2. Chamomile
  3. Passionflower

Herbal Sleep Aids: What You Should Know Before Taking Them?

What are the different types of sleep aids?

Sleep aids come in a variety of different forms, with the most popular being sleep capsules. This is the case, since they are easy to take and have a controlled dosage.

Another common sleep aid is in the form of sleep gummies, which are perfect if you are someone who struggles to swallow capsules. However, these are not often the healthiest, since they can contain large amounts of sugars.

The final type of sleep aid is sleep tinctures. This is typically an extract from a plant and is often ingested with the use of a dropper. It is important to note that these can be confused with CBD oil products. However, there are a variety of CBD Oils that have been created for sleep that commonly contain Valerian Root or Chamomile. These combined help you with sleep, instead of only having CBD Oil which is mainly used for its calming ingredients.


Can sleep supplements help reduce stress/anxiety?

Sleep supplements can definitely help with stress and anxiety of everyday life. This is because in many cases bad sleep is caused by stress and anxiety, which leads to many of us having racing thoughts at night and keeps us from falling asleep. In essence this is a two way street, since worser sleep quality leads to an increase of stress and anxiety, while the stress and anxiety of work will also lead to worser sleep quality, which can be a very difficult cycle to get out of. That’s why I would definitely recommend sleep supplements to help someone get out of this continuous loop. By taking sleep supplements it can help your body and mind relax before bed and help someone break out of this cycle to start feeling fresh in the morning.

Will sleep supplements make me feel drowsy?

Some sleep supplements can make you drowsy, but it may not always be the sleep supplements fault since if you wake up in the middle of your sleep cycle this will also make you feel drowsy. Therefore there are a lot of factors that can lead to one waking up drowsy.

Can I take sleep supplements everyday?

Yes you can take some sleep supplements every night. But this depends on their ingredients, like I would not recommend individuals to take supplements such as melatonin and 5-HTP every night due to long term issues that are caused by both these sleep supplements. When creating Revitalifes – Night Support I wanted a sleep supplement that I could take every night without having any implications, therefore all the ingredients used were specifically chosen so anyone can take the supplement for long term use. Therefore, it is important when choosing a sleep supplement, that you check the ingredients to make sure they are all suitable for long term use.


Should I take sleep supplements over a long period of time?

I would always suggest that before taking a sleep supplement a person should try to improve their sleep quality naturally (“How to improve your sleep quality blog”). If none of these natural methods work for you, then I would recommend a sleep supplement, since I would argue sleep is the most important factor to improves ones overall quality of life. But as mentioned above it depends on the ingredients of the sleep supplement.

Do I need to speak to a doctor before taking sleep supplements?

It is always recommended to speak to your doctor before taking sleep supplements, especially if you are on any other medication or have just had a treatment. 

Overall, sleep is one of the most important areas of someones life and therefore it may be helpful for you to take sleep supplements to help you drift off at night.
