The Importance of Sleep: Fighting Insomnia

January 13, 2010

How do you sleep? Well? Millions of Americans suffer from the sleep disorder insomnia, so if you aren’t getting your eight hours you are far from alone. Women, especially, are more likely to suffer from insomnia then men. However, getting those 7-8 hours is important; studies have shown that people who regularly get at least 7 hours of sleep live longer than those who don’t. Further, there is a prevalent myth that as you get older, you need less sleep. This is not true. Rather, as you get older your body looses its ability to sleep through the night. Not getting enough sleep affects your waking life too, and can cause you to go through your day groggy and slightly impaired. However, if you suffer from insomnia or just want to get more sleep, there’s something you can do about it.

First off, there are simple things you can do to change your routine to better accommodate sleeping at night.

  • Don’t eat right before bed. If you can, have dinner a few hours before bedtime, and avoid snacking after dinner. If you have trouble digesting, consider a supplement that helps you to digest. Digest Aid+ will not only help you break down your meal, but its helpful enzymes are also useful in breaking down damaged tissues, complementing your bodies nocturnal processes of repairing damaged tissue.
  • Exercise in the morning, sometime before lunch. Exercising stimulates your body and mind, and the release of hormones such as norepinephrine and serotonin from exercising can make you restless as you try and relax for sleep.
  • Anxiety is a common cause of sleep disorders, whether it makes you restless or gives you nightmares that wake you or cause you to sleep poorly. Take at least five minutes before bed to relax, and remember if there’s nothing you can do about something right then, don’t worry about it, and if it’s something you can fix quickly, then just get it off your to-do list. Most things can wait until morning.
  • Sometimes sleep apnea can disrupt your sleep. Blow your nose before bed. If you’re suffering from a sinus infection, support your immune system with MesoSilver. MesoSilver supports your immune system to fight the bacteria that is causing the sinus infection, eventually reducing mucus build-up in your nose and sinuses.
  • If you have trouble sleeping because of pain or illness, consider what supplements might help alleviate your illness or its painful symptoms.

If you don’t have a specific condition disrupting your sleep, or you’re getting older and need helping staying asleep for 8 hours, then take Nite MGR before bed. Nite MGR contains amino acids, vitamins, minerals, herbs, antioxidants, and more that work together to give your body everything it needs to put you to rest and restore your mind and body while you sleep. It contains melatonin and other key neurotransmitters which your brain needs to relax you and put you to sleep. It helps your body relax by supporting your bones and muscles with Magnesium and Vitamin D3 to help your bones absorb calcium. If you’re not getting enough calcium in your diet, as most people don’t, make sure you supplement with Cal Mag Complete.

Sleeping replenishes you mind and body. It’s when your body completes essential functions like repairing damaged tissue and it’s when your brain clears its docket and neural connections, which is important for both logic and creativity (hence the phrase “sleep on it”). Nite MGR contains the ingredients your body needs to effectively complete these functions. Taking it as a supplement before bed will help you to sleep your best and reach those 8 hours.
