The most popular natural aid for sleep is melatonin. Supplementation with melatonin has been shown in several studies to be very effective in helping induce and maintain sleep in both children and adults, and in both people with normal sleep patterns and those with insomnia. The sleep-promoting effects of melatonin are most apparent if melatonin levels in the body are low.
5-HTP is converted in the brain to serotonin -- an important initiator of sleep. It is one step closer to serotonin than L-tryptophan, and has shown more consistent results in promoting and maintaining sleep, even though used at lower dosages.
One of the key benefits of 5-HTP is its ability to increase REM sleep (typically by about 25 percent), while increasing deep sleep stages 3 and 4 without lengthening total sleep time. The sleep stages that are reduced to compensate for the increases are non-REM stages 1 and 2, which are the least important stages.
L-theanine is a unique amino acid found almost exclusively in tea plants (Camellia sinensis). Clinical studies have demonstrated that L-theanine reduces stress, improves the quality of sleep, diminishes the symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), heightens mental acuity, and reduces the negative side effects of caffeine. At typical dosages of 100 to 200 mg, L-theanine does not act as a sedative, but it does significantly improve sleep quality. At higher single dosages, of 600 mg, L-theanine does exert a sedative effect. It is an excellent support agent to melatonin and 5-HTP.
When these supplements are taken together, they exert synergistic effects to relax, calm, and promote restful sleep without sedating. Somnaid™ does not cause daytime drowsiness, or the other problematic side effects of the prescription and over-the-counter sleeping pills. Consult a physician if you are taking antidepressants.
Problems with most common "over-the-counter" sleep ingredients
Diphenhydramine and Doxylamine
Both medications are sedating antihistamines. Common side effects include daytime drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, blurred vision, tremor, constipation and urinary retention. These 2 commonly used antihistamines will cause drowsiness but DECREASE the restful restorative REM sleep. They also are contraindicated with many medical conditions such as glaucoma and enlarged prostate in males. They can worsen the symptoms of dementia / Alzheimer's disease as well as increase the risk of dementia.
Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of this drug, especially drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, constipation, or trouble urinating. Some of these side effects can greatly increase the risk of falling.
