Blackmores Sleep Sound Formula supports your body's natural ability to sleep soundly and wake refreshed. It contains a clinically trialled valerian extract to improve sleep quality plus lemon balm and magnesium.
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb to ease insomnia and anxiety. Germany's Commission E approved valerian as an effective mild sedative and the USA FDA listed valerian as "Generally Recognised as Safe". It is believed that valerian works by increasing the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA lowers the activity of excitatory brain cells, making you more relaxed.
The specially chosen valerian extract used in this formula has been shown in scientific studies to support your body's natural ability to sleep soundly and deeply and allows you to wake refreshed without a feeling of drowsiness. Valerian helps promote healthy sleep patterns and improves sleep quality. Continuous nightly use (for several days to four weeks) may be needed for significant effects.
Lemon balm has been traditionally used for the relief of tenseness, restlessness and irritability, for the relief of nervous sleep disorders and for its carminative and sedative actions.Several studies have found that lemon balm when combined with valerian helps reduce anxiety and promote sleep.
Magnesium is an essential mineral and is important for the healthy function of the nervous system. Some research has reported that individuals suffering with magnesium deficiency tend to have a reduced time in deep sleep. Magnesium deficiency has also been associated with increased night time wakefulness.
