Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Life Science Nutritionals (LSN) is pleased to announce the launch of their newest gummy product, Adult Essentials Night Time Sleep Aid. Scheduled to hit Shoppers Drug Mart store shelves across Canada this spring, Adult Essentials Night Time Sleep Aid is a natural sleep aid.
Each Adult Essentials Night Time Sleep Aid gummy contains 5 mg melatonin. Proven to improve both the duration and quality of sleep, melatonin is the hormone that helps control sleep and wake cycles. The new Adult Essentials Night Time Sleep Aid formula is aimed at people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule.
“We’re simply responding to requests from retailers to supply melatonin that is easier to take than traditional pills,” says LSN Founder, Stuart Lowther. “As with all our gummies, the soft pectin base and natural colours and flavours make it preferable for those who don't like swallowing large pills.”
Triggered by changes in daylight, melatonin helps the body regulate its natural sleep-wake rhythms, increasing production in the mid- to late evening and staying elevated overnight. This is how melatonin works to both induce and maintain healthy sleep.
People who suffer from sleep disorders, such as a sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule or delayed sleep phase disorder, benefit from taking a melatonin supplement to help regulate their sleep-wake cycle, increasing both quality and quantity of sleep.
“Sleep has been linked to improved memory, reduced inflammation, sharpened attention, healthier weight, and lowered stress and anxiety levels,” says Lowther. “Research has shown that chronic lack of sleep can be linked to broad range of health and psychological disorders.”
Labeled as a health epidemic, chronic lack of sleep has been linked to both acute and chronic illnesses. Acute conditions, like colds and flu, are the result of a compromised immune system; whereas, diseases, like diabetes, and heart disease, are the result of cardiovascular inflammation.
A sleep survey of Canadians found that approximately 40% of adults report experiencing at least one symptom of insomnia 3 times per week, 20% are dissatisfied with their sleep and 13% met all the criteria for a diagnosis of insomnia.
“Many of our lifestyle choices can lead to both temporary and chronic sleep disorders,” says Lowther. “Traveling to different time zones or working shift work, for example, make it difficult to get into a regular sleep routine.”
Melatonin has been proven to increase total sleep time for people suffering from a sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule, reduce or prevent the effects of jet lag and decrease the time it takes to fall asleep for people with a delayed sleep phase disorder. In essence, it resets the natural sleep-wake cycle.
Compared to other sleep aids, taking a melatonin supplement boosts the body’s natural sleep mechanism. Classified as sedative hypnotics, sleeping pills induce sleep by increasing drowsiness or depressing the central nervous system. The main health concern with sleeping pills is many are potentially addictive.
“Adult Essentials Night Time Sleep Aid is a natural and effective alternative to synthetic pharmaceuticals,” says Lowther.
